Bramford Girls Challenge

 

I got around to completing the challenge with the girl tonight, I did leave it to the last minute which is why it is so simple really.  I am still loving the Octopode images and have treated myself to a few more digi stamps to use this year.

Tracey gave us all a door hanger to alter this month, we all picked another person to make for, I hope that Janet likes my effort.

I used DI’s Worn Lipstick and Weathered Wood and a range of stamps on the background, I also used a bronze and white marker pens to highlight the hanger.  The letter stamps are ones that I won a while back from Shimelle, I really like the font and don't use them much, I think they will be featuring in my Document 2012 album.

I will hopefully be able to do a post about how my travel journal has turned out as I am planning to tackle this at the crop tomorrow. All my papers have arrived from carious online stores so I am stocked up now and ready to go.

Thanks for looking

Happy New Year

 

Happy New Year Everyone, hope everyone had a lovely Christmas and has recovered from Christmas.  I have only been back at work 2 days and it seems like 2 weeks!

I have had my blog now for just over 2 years my first post was on the 30th December 2009, it has been neglected a bit lately with the madness of work and life, but one of my resolutions is to update more often and to take part in more challenges.

I have done a fair bit of crafting over the Christmas period mainly last minute Christmas cards and thank you cards.  I also made the annual calendars for my mum and aunt.

Have you got any scrapping bargains in the sales, I have got a fair few bits, mainly the core elements of my 2012 album, I like to document each month, I am using the Simple Stories Life Documented papers as the theme that runs through.  I also have another very special project I am going to be working on….

My lovely boyfriend as a Christmas present is taking me to America for 10 days.  So on the 16th January I will be jetting off to LA with trips to San Francisco and Las Vegas.  I plan on taking lots of photos of course and I want to dedicate a whole album to this trip.  I have chosen the Simple Stories Destination papers as the core for this album and also got a set of different divided page protectors to use as well.

 

I am also going to make a travel journal to take with me to complete when I am out there.  I am planning on making a bound book with a leather cover like I saw made on Kirstie’s Homemade Home.  I have the supplies I just need to find the time to make it.

I also have October – December to finish scrapping in my 2011 album so need to get a move on with that.  I recently backed up all my photos from 2011 all 4gb worth of them.  Please remember to back up your files people I would hate any of you to loose precious memories.

Well again I hope you all had a good start to the new year, I need to go get working on my challenge piece for the Bramford Crop on Saturday as the other ladies look like they have been busy!!

Thanks for Looking
