they came TODAY!!! WOW!!!!! and there's an extra mini stamp in the parcel.
I think from now on I'll order everything on a Friday it seems to be a "good buying day".
I took up the UKS weekly Challenge again this week.
Use a Royal theme 10 pts - I was A Queen for a Day - title
Use the colour yellow 5pts - poetic licence on this one - "the Hatters Tie"
Use Circles 5pts - loads and loads
Use some Shine 5pts - I took this to mean bling, so added some PM Gems
Use something new to you 5pts - stamping with white ink onto black CS.
I used some of my new Costco papers and handful of Prima blooms some buttons, eyelets and PM gems. I hand cut three circles and used a swirly stamp and my new Kelly Panacci stamps for the titling. i also journaled with some doodlebug rub-ons around the circles.
My last Lo for the Day is about my fears in using my new camera, and what a huge challenge it is going to be!!!!! I made a new Wordle all about my camera which wasn't big enough the first time i made it so i googled the camera and copied down loads of info about it pasting this along with my words into wordle the finished result was much more compact! I liked it!!
Novembers cover girl is Maggie-Mae in one of my favorite photos of her, taken her first day on the IOW back in early 2007. The large flower is made using my new Technique Tuesday stamp. I also used some antique Lace (that i got from my sisters neighbour), ribbon and a Bazzill flower.
Starting the New Year with Suki and Diggory on Appley Beach, just a few rub-on's here with a few primas and brads
Trav's Birthday month so here's my man! circled with PM gems. Throughout the Calender I have noted special dates to Trav and I, from our birthday's to our Bi-annual "Cockers on the Beach" walk.
The best month of the year!!!!! Is April!!!!!
I love my birthday and have no fear that each year I grow older......... O' scary!!!!!
No I love reaching each Birthday and looking back on what I have done and forward to what I plan to achieve (this mind set is thanks to Trav who's massively positive out-look on live is really rubbing of on me). Of course all the ladybirds are a must they are all rub ons and i have marked both mine and my sisters birthdays with gems and LB's
More Rub ons and Lace for June, with my favorite recent photo of Molly, not sure what she was doing......... Yawning or licking her lips but i love it!
The year closes with Diggoy in the sea at the Duver. As august doesn't really feature in the school year I haven't made a page for this month. so if I ever decide to have this calender at home then I will have to do an add on.The papers i have used throughout the Calender are from my K&Co box with a little textured card added here and there. the pages are made from medium weight cardstock as I didn't want the finished calender to be too heavy and the layers PP has made the pages very sturdy. The are Lb's on every page either inplain sight but some are shy and have tucked themselves away.
I still have enough boxes to make another five................... but I'm really fed put with sticking match boxes together now. So I think back to some "normal" scrapping for a while I think.
AnyWhoo I'm off away for a few day's tomorrow so I won't be about for a week.
Missing Ya all already :)
