Up up and away.

Just a quick one to show you another layout I did a few days ago. It's of my parents hot air balloon flight that their friend won and didn't want it so gave it to them for free! I draw the clouds, cut them out and then inked them. Quite simple but I think it works well!

I love the new Twisted sketch that when up yesterday, I will have to get around to doing that one.

We are looking after my nephew over night on Saturday. It should be good fun but I'm not looking forward to the early morning!!

Thanks for looking.

I'm Back!

Well I've had a bit of a time of it lately with poorly people in and out of hospital and a poorly dog so it hasn't been very easy but things are looking up now so hopefully thats the end of it.

I spend a lovely day with my nephew yesterday, my mum and I looked after him for the day while the boys went fishing and his mum was working. He was really good and we had lots of smiles and hugs. We went to Chew valley lake and had a ice cream which he loved, I got some great photos which will be appearing on some layouts sometime soon!!

Anyway I have got my mojo back, yay! It's a horrible feeling when you haven't got it!
I managed to do the last twisted sketch #6. The twist was to use a stamp so I stamped the swirl and pink embossed it. I didn't change the sketch much as I thought it went with the photos really well, the only thing I did do was move the title. I'm really pleased with how it turned out.

Hope you like the grass, I hand cut it! I stitched the flower and cut it out and put it on one of the crocheted circles that my mum made for me. Thanks mum!!!
Best go and get on with my pile of jobs that I need to catch up with! I got lots of letters and envelopes to print out for the M.E. charity I belong to. And hopefully I bit of scrapping!
Hope your having a good weekend. x

I haven't been up to much lately, I'm lacking a bit in the inspiration department so thats why I been slack in blogging. Hopefully I'll get it back soon! I've also been having problems with my internet connection which is really annoying.
What I have been doing I can't really show yet as they are presents for people but I will show you them when I can! I can show you a layout I did the other day though! It's other one for my nephews scrapbook album. I used My Minds Eye paper, which I love.

Here's the little catapellar I made to match the photos!

Hopefully I be back soon with some more, I might try the lastest twisted sketch to get some inspiration back.

Thank you to those of you who have left lovely comments on my posts, they mean a lot.

It's been boiling.

What heat we had have, I'm glad it's a bit cooler today. I haven't been doing much because of the heat, just watching the tennis!
I went to my local primary school this afternoon to help the kids with making pictures of sea scapes. They were really good and they came up with some great ideas.
I have managed to make two layouts over the pass couple of days. The first one is of my Mum and her best friend, it's a great photo so I kept the layout quite soft and pretty.

The second is of my sister-in-law and me, the photo was taken last year then I couldn't wait to become an aunty. I love the Cosmo Cricket, Friday girl and American Crafts papers.

That's it for now. Have a good weekend.
