A Challenging Challenge

Oh what to do what to do , As a warm up to a card making workshop I am attending in april a challenge has been set  - that is to make a card using just black and white .  I think I may have to spend a while raiding my stash for applicable stash .

If your interested the workshop is on Saturday 24th April at Olveston Primary School near Bristol It costs £25, all the supplies except adhesive and basic tools are supplied and you will make 15 cards .

The modscraps shop will be there for all your stash shopping needs , refreshments are provided ( but you need to take your own lunch) and there will even be time to crop or do more cardmaking afterwards if you fancy it .

if your interested in joining us  then contact Lynne aka beadmad on UKS or leave me a message here and i will pass it on.

Just for today , Be Happy.

Following a promise made at saturdays crop I was suprised ( because my memory sucks and I had forgotten the said promise) to recieve a handwritten envelope through the post ( so much nicer than the printed ones don't you  think ?)  and in it was this

A wonderful AC  "S " that my layout was missing , which promtly (within 10 minutes of arrival ) got attached to its LO which (now) looks like this (thankyou Giselle)

And I then scraplifted my own design for my Gift album for my lovely surrogate son and his parents  - something which I may do a bit more off.     See I am currently working on two gift album's one for my surro sons and one for my lovely surrogate daughter  - well more for her parents and it needs to be finished for her birthday in june ! so by scraplifting my own LO's it will make the whole thing much easier and will leave me time to work on my own album :)  anyway this is the outcome  - Max's daddy has a huge obsession with watches so these pictures of max taking a liking to daddys watch as a baby were so easy to scrap .  watch this space for a similar ( but slightly pinker) lo for the other album :)

Keeping my new years resolution

It was modscraps crop day again yesterday and of course I am keeping my new years resolution so went along .

despite a lot of the regular attendies being otherwise occupied this month was still a very busy crop.  I luckily had some great cropping companions and managed to complete 4 whole LO's . 2 for me and 2 for Max's album .  

I did a little bit of stash shopping which went straight to DH on my arrival home as I know the kids won't know what to get me for mothers day - I bought some cozmo cricket tiny type alphas  which i am totally in love with and definatly need to get more . I also bought a few sheets of  cosmo cricket material girl range  and a few from the garden view range too - just have to be really patient and wait until next weeeknd before I can play with them .

and talking of next weekend can I tell you how very excited I am that its the first F1 race of the season next weekend :)

so back to craft issues and today I carried on creating  starting with a couple of mothersday cards  and a couple of birthday cards  - one of which is above , and followed swiftly by 2 LO's .

I just want to finish by saying watch this space as I am working on a sketch challenge for you :)
