For the forum's 'Celebration' theme LO I also found some great old pics of Mum and Dad's Golden Wedding. It was a secret party and the look on their faces throughout the whole evening with each new element of surprise was wonderful to behold.<

2nd place in our Forum 'Celebration' LO competition has chuffed me no end, because I've only been scrapbooking for a few weeks. I have been scrattin' through boxes and boxes of old photos and found my mum's little album of my sister's wedding and thought them ideal to scrap as a 'Celebration'. Was worried because, of course, they were in black and white but was pleased with the result as I chose to do mainly pink as I remembered that was the colour of my bridesmaids dress. Yes I am the little bridesmaid...aged 9. I remember too that I had a circlet of real freesias on my head and tiny lace gloves

Sweet Memories

Boy, once you start scrapbooking there is no holding back.
I have been sifting through albums and boxes of old photos looking for something or other to keep my mojo afloat....and it's not hard with the amount I've got, added to those all my mums too.
Came up with this for a given sketch LO on the forum
Would you believe I thought I was fat then, I would give my right arm to look like that now. What are we like?....don't answer that. LOL!!

It's been a while.....

since my last post but I have been busy here are 3 cards for rhe Forum Challenges, 2 for the challenge 'Flowers'
and the other is for the challenge 'Got Your Number'
I have done 2 LO's which are for a forum competition at the end of the month so watch this space.

Happy Stampers Northwest

Had a wonderful few hours at this venue in Port Sunlight on saturday.
This was the Spring one and there is another one in October. It is ticket only £2 and I wouldn't miss it for the world. Even though it was hotter than ever...phew!!! I managed 2 hours with a sit down and a cuppa in the middle to recharge the batteries.
Brilliant to see Barbara Santerelli of Clarity Imagina Stamps, I love to see her work she is so vivacious and full of enthusiasm, but the stamp I wanted was sold out 'Feminine' :(
I did manage to spent a little cash, although the flow isn't what it was before I retired.
The large flower and sentiment are by Penny Black and the small flower is by Great Impressions and will be brilliant to use in scalloped circles with a sentiment inside.
Couldn't find any Hero Arts stamps that I wanted and no 12" x 12" paper at all. :(
But I have enough new stash to play with and have some ideas up my sleeve which I must get onto watch this space! :)

Pink, plus.........

These were for a forum competition where the cards had to be pink plus additions of vellum, peel-offs and brads. Points being awarded for each element.
This really meant digging out old stash i.e. vellum and peel-offs lol.

May Bank Holiday

Well I hope you have all enjoyed yours, I spent a wonderful afternoon yesterday with my 2 sons Barney and Nick and their girlfriends Elen & Laura. We went for a pub lunch to the Cherry Orchard and I can whole-heartedly recommend this place. A great time was spent catching up and getting the banter on, haven't laughed so much in an age. Then it was back to Barney & Elens for coffee and snooker. C'mon on Ali !!!
So today I thought I better get some crafting done and have managed to cobble together my 1st ever double page LO. This was set as a challenge by Kerrie on the forum.
Wasn't too sunny for taking the pics today but I am happy with the result. And it just goes to prove that the humble dandelion can certainly hold it's own against the hybrid blouseyness of the pansies and tulips.
I definately I think I need an alpha for my 'bug' as I'm really scratting now for enough letters in any other format that I have to hand.
