At long Bloomin Last !!!

At long last you may say !!! Sorry for the delay but the house is in chaos with the builders in, we've demolished a huge 1970/80's stone clad fire surround (12'x7') - to expose the original fire place....a few major problems whilst doing it, but at least the chimney didn't collapse !!! They are also working in 2 bathrooms and 2 bedrooms and DH has been decorating the lounge. The dust has been unbelievable, and damp and plaster dust set my asthma off brilliantly, so I've had to stay out of the house quite a bit..... Anyway here are some sneak peeks for Saturdays class at PaperArts.

I've used 3 portrait 3 1/2x 2 1/2" and 1 landscape 3 1/2x 2 1/2....you could use all portrait if you wish, or 2 6x4". Mine has a beach theme as the paper has little fishes on it The colours are mostly red but the background spots are various reds, yellows, pink, orange, blues, brown and greens. Hopefully there will be some spaces left if you'd like to join us !!!

Scrap365 publications

These are the two LO's I had published in Scrap365 on behalf of PaperArts as part of their DT . The Vit D Fix was part of the 6 photo challenge, and the other was about things you love/favourite things.

I'm finding I'm using lots of photos on my Layouts at the moment, I still do the odd 1 photo page, but I love the effect of the multi photo page, it gives more of a story and a memory. I think Harry was quite chuffed to be featured this time, Abbie is used to it though, and gets quite jealous if she's not in the magazine and the others are! I think next month is Harry again, then Dan & Abbie the following month, in an article I had to write myself. (Not my strong poing). I'll have to take some of the older children, but they aren't around much any more and certainly don't like having their photos taken !!!

Its about time......

I got and updated my blog, instead of reading everybody elses! This was my last class at PaperArts, and we made extra kits that are available to buy here. I think there are a couple left. The flower paper (Echo Park) I believe, was stunning, and I've saved mine to cut out some more flowers for another LO, in the future. My next class is in May and you can book here, I've no idea what I'm doing yet, but I expect it will involve, inking, distressing and cutting out!
