Last Saturday was the first crop of the year for the Wight Craft Circle. we gathered as normal at 9.30am at our community hut to drink coffee, eat cakes and craft away to our hearts content! I haven't been doing much scrapbooking lately, I find crocheting takes up most of my spare time and although I have a pile of photos waiting to use I've not really been into the paper side of crafts. I don't count my JOY book as scrapping (although it is really) I'm talking 12x12 and 11x8.5 scrapping when I say I haven't done much lately. So Saturday I planned to get my mojo into gear and get some done. And here's what I did.........
REMEMBER WHEN HUNNI MONSTER ATE THE RAINBOW CAKE
I will need to cut the page protector for this layout as it has a photo flap that moves to show two more 4x6 photos. I the papers I used are; Sassafrass, October Afternoon and some scraps from my paper bin. I used a mixture of stamps, stickers and dye cuts for my title and journalled on the OA card, that is tucked behind the title card.
ORIGINAL ART BY JACK PICASSO
I then got a little messy with my Mr Huey's white spray ink and made this LO of little Jack (who by the way is three now!)The papers are all OA with a little Kraft and Bazzill thrown in for good measure. I used the same mix of produces for the title on this page as the on above.
LITTLE TIKES 1ST BIRTHDAY
I loved these photos of Liam and KP opening his first birthday presents when my sister sent them to me back in August last year. They had been printed off and waiting for a scrapping burst of energy all this time. I mirrored the yellow and red of the "LittleTikes" car for my colour choices, using OA, Crate paper and MME papers I used a whole sheet of patterned Kraft as a background.
So they are my three makes for the day, I'm feeling a little more like a scrapbooker again, but am saving up any ideas I might have in the next few weeks as I'm off on retreat with the WCC early in February and plan to get a whole load more done there! I received a belated Christmas pressie in the post this week :) Some more new
yummy scary crochet projects to sink my teeth into ;)
My last piece of
waffle information for this post is an update on Tee's blanket, I think I'm about half way there with making the squares,
although I didn't get many done last night as Gracie was hogging the wool!
