more lo's i am on a roll....

Well i didnt expect to be back so soon after my last post but i have been busy! This first lo is using some old bo bunny papers i have wanted to scrap these pics for about a year but never found a way of arranging the photos so glad its done now!
The second lo is based on this weeks pencillines sketch..little monkey doesnt like the sand very much - not that i can blame her as neither do i! These are fancy pants papers.

Now we have some my minds eye halloween papers from last year...again this photo has been waiting a year to be scrapped.

This next lo was a class of the a trip down memory lane blog from last July i wanted to do this one for ages but never got around to it - perhaps because it involved paint but i finally got that one done too ...i bought the paint so had to use it!

Next we have the 2010 christmas photo and i had to scrap this one as it was the best of a bad batch of photos as little madam didnt want her picture take - luckily the 2011 one is slighlty better than this!

So thats my update i think i have managed about 8 or 9 lo's this month now so i am quite proud of myself for that! Its amazing what happens when you have a tidy workspace!

Thanks for reading

I do still scrap...

Well this hasnt been easy...i usually blog from my phone but the cropper program for the photos wouldnt work, then they wouldnt publish so i decided to do it from the computer and then i couldnt upload the pics from the phone so after a few bits of cursing i eventually managed to email them from the phone to the pc and crop and then realised i didnt have a clue on the blogger password so had to recover it!!!
Well just to prove that i do still scrap i thought i would share some lo's! I do go to my crop most months and tend to get a couple of lo's done but i have been bad at scrapping at home.
I did this first lo at last months crop its a professional piccie we had done back in july and i really like it.
This second lo is my friend and i with emily at framlingham castle back in april and look at what a sunny day it was. i did this lo at this months crop.

This next lo is another from last month its quite bright and funky so i was pleased with how it turned out ... some piccies i have had for ages too so always good to scrap those.

Then amazingly i have had some time in my craft room tonight, i thought i would clear it up and get down to business so i produced these 2 los. This first one i have wanted to use the photo and paper togther for months but never managed it. Then i see this weeks pencillines sketch which was perfect so i adapted the sketch and did this.

In an effort to be a better team member on uks i decided to do the weekly challenge. It was to use autumn colours, cut photos, glitter (the brads at top) and use paint....yes i did get the inks and paint out for this lo most unusual for me as i hate paint but the edges of the photos are painted red. Again i have had these photos for ages and not sure what to do with them so very pleased they are finally scrapped and i think its a good lo.

So there u go thats me, i do still exist and try and use my craft stuff...thanks for reading and hopefully i won't leave it so long next time

April crafting

Hiya all
Well it was another productive crop this month with 5 lo's being made. They are the first 5 below..
This one is a sarahscards kit cannot remember what one though.

This next one is a very old gogo kit I still have quite a few of the kits knocking around my challenge is to use or split them up but its a slow process!

Another gogo kit below. This was our first time on the Norfolk Broads last year and really enjoyed it lots.

The next pp's are MLS This was last August when Emily took an interest in the goat at the petting farmyard at Banham zoo it was quite funny - poor goat she was pulling at it!

This lo is around may / june time last year when she had not long been sitting she was at a poppyfield here. Looking forward to getting some cute photos this year in the flowers!

These last 2 lo's have been done today...not often I get a chance to scrap but Emily had a nice long sleep so I made the most of it!
This first LO is this weeks pencillines sketch

This last lo is a mixture of last weeks pencillines sketch and this weeks weekly challenge on UKS.

Thanks for taking the time to look x

March Wk 2 challenge on UKS

Well I cannot remember the last time I did a UKS challenge or any come to that but I thought I would give this weeks a go. The challenge was to use white space, 1or2 photos and bling so I have come up with this using MME alphabet soup papers.

2011 Lo's

Well I have managed a few LO's this year although not many. I did complete my December daily journal as well so I was quite pleased with the final outcome on that one.
I have only been able to scrap at my crops and I have been to 2 this year. Yesterday was a very productive crop for all of us but I managed 5 Lo's which isn't bad considering Emily was there too but luckily she did have a lovely long sleep.
This is the first of my lo's using indie girl papers which I adore. The photos were taken on Iain's birthday when we went to walton.

The second lo has been made using MME papers and a gorgeous punch belonging to fellow scrapper - Karen! This was our visit to Banham Zoo last summer.

The next LO was some Bo Bunny papers (I think) My nan was 80 in November and these are a few shots from her surprise party that my aunt arranged.

Then this is the Wonderland at Colchester Zoo at Christmas. Becky and Emily enjoying that. These are some more Bo Bunny papers.

This was a cold frosty morning we went from a walk down to town - must have been December. I just love the frost on the grass in the background and thought these we are memory keepers papers went well with it.
Last month I managed 2 LO's at the crop and they are blow. This first one using my Dec Sarahs cards kit features the lights that dad puts up for Christmas.

Then the last LO is our walk through highwoods country park one Sunday morning around end Jan beg Feb. Was a cold morning but a lovely walk.
Sorry I haven't been keeping this blog upto date but I hope you like my most recent lo's.
