More adonit

This came together quite quickly as I had the photos ready for last weeks crop and trimmed them and put them on some cardstock on my table. Following day I swapped the cardstock for a lighter green and again left them. Friday I had some free time so added some patterned paper and embellishments from my adornit folder and it was done.

Felling okay today after my day op yesterday, a little dopey, but milking it for all it's worth!! Follow up appointment this Friday.

Time for a swim

Ask Matthew what his favourite part of our trip in 2008 to Egypt was, and he'll say the swimming pool at the Winter palace!! So here's yet another swimming pool layout, using even more of my Adornit prize, a Scrapping Angels flower, a miscellaneous brad and some Thickers.

Saturday's crop

A few missing from Saturday's crop, but we had a lovely day and welcomed two new members. Marianne was doing some lovely layouts with her wedding photos and Lyn popped in to meet us and find out what equipment to buy. We hope she'll visit us next month and that Marianne will also return.

My progress was slow until lunchtime, but I still managed three layouts - two doubles and a single. All of which used the adornit papers and stickers I won, my bargain bag of flowers, my new sticky buttons and my new Thickers from

I almost forgot I also used my upper crest punch on the away day layout.

& a few other things I like

Shimelle was very late in loading up the bonus sketch for Go to Press as her new class took priority. So I have now completed my album which I'll bring to the crop next Saturday.

Can't wait to see Jenny's purchases from her recent trip and all her new photos ready to scrap. Hope you had a good flight back Jenny.

Happy mail

Firstly I received a prize from Adornit which includes a new version of their little letters, two sheets of embellishment stickers and lots of paper.

And I've completed day 1 of "Learn something new everyday" hereafter called LSNED.

Learn something new everyday

Here's the front cover. I hope I can achieve more then just that though!!

I have learnt that the Amy Butler butterfly die cut sheet makes a lovely stencil to use with some ink pads on a background.
