Leene Aldrich Stamps

This Fab stamp is by Leene Aldrich it's called "Going places" it's from my favourite place The Craft Den, Think it's fab!! I have put it together with the new Daisy Bucket Papers Posh Posies a bit of lace and bling for my first go!!

Here it is again this one is for my Daughter Rochelle "Alias Penelope Pitstop" she has just passed her driving test and is always whizzing about!! I coloured them in with my copic's, don't think I've done a bad job even though you do need to get used to them xxxx

Craft Den Scrap Night!!

We now all do the same layout at the Craft Den on Thursday nights!! Which is a lot better as there is no wasted time finding all the right papers and embellishments, everything is right in front of you, just have to Scrap how cool is that!! In this layout I have used a picture of my mum when she was very young!! When I was going to put it into my scrap book today thou I thought it just needed as little extra something!! you've guessed a bit of BLING!!

Playing with my copics

This is the first time I have felt confident enough to show you my colouring in with the beautiful copic pen's!! It's taken me a while to get the knack of it (mainly trying to stay within the line's) but when I passed then round at the Craft Den this week everyone thought I'd done a good job so here they are xx

This picture is my darling husband Allan, stepson Nathan and Stinky the rabbit!! (his name was drawn out of a hat! Allan found him one night when it was snowing but no one claimed him so we all picked a name as you do and unfortunately we picked out stinky)

Show & tell!!!

Well what can I say I have finished my lovely altered art image box made from a cat food container!! We saw this on Maddy's blog "Mad Imaginations" its not every one's cup of tea but it certainly made sure we had a great night, I haven't laughed that much in ages.

Our Wednesday night group at the Craft Den are brilliant ladies it really is a pleasure to go (great company & we even get to craft what more could anyone want) Life's been a bit bad for the last few months but because of Lynne and all the ladies at the Craft Den I am now starting to pick up and feel my mojo is definitely returning!! Thanks Ladies you truly are the best!!

My Nan xxxx

Just finished my project from Thursday night's class at the Craft Den. This is my beloved nan, who from being a little girl I went everywhere with!! (Every time I start a scrap page lately they seem to all end up being of her!!) Really please with it anyway, it is a page from the new GCD range and a few different coloured bazzill's! not forgetting the trade mark bling, all from my friend Lynne's.

Crop day at the Craft Den.

Well had the perfect day today at the Craft Den! Spent the whole day doing Scrapbook pages!! with Lynne, Anita, Joanne & Norma. Here are the layouts we did, they where all so lovely as they all had our individual style on them even though they where the same page! The first one we did I have put a picture of my Nan. thought it did the page Justice with the lace and skeleton leaves (which I have a whole stack of but never knew what to do with them) and obviously a little bling!!
The second page!! looks really intricate but was very easy to do, this one is a my mum & her sister on Whit Sunday in 1955. Love the hibiscus flowers!! Last of all a beautiful bright picture of me and my girls on holiday a few years ago!! a bit of tearing, sewing and plenty of flowers. Can't believe we actually finished three pages today!! anyway we all enjoyed it so much we have already booked onto the next one!!
