Scrapbook Generation DT call

I know that most of our crop group have now discovered Allison Davis' sketches. The design team call closed today and I have done this layout with the single page sketch. I changed the three photos into one large photo and took the zig zags and stars from the school badge and went with the theme. Thanks to Lorraine for the loan of the nestabilities stars which I embossed and texturized (if there is such a word). Some very old product on this layout including the Colorbok stitched paper which is about 5 years old. The zig zag on the badge translated into the ric rac and the texturizing on the stars and the stars on the badge follow through into the die cut stars and the star on the title block.

I thought I should blot out the faces of the other boys in Matthew's year but had to do it very crudely as I couldn't remember how to blur them.

Lizzie is at home with one of her tummy aches / stomach migraines. I missed my cooker class this morning but have made up both recipes. Lizzie was desperate to try out the sinful oreo cookie cheesecake which was a baked cheesecake. She had her reservations but declared it delicious

November 2010 crop

Great fun and lots of socialising, but the only thing I did at the crop was this LO based on the Ocotober 2010 Ali Davis sketch. And I worked on it most of Sunday too. Thank you to Joanne for the BG Eerie papers and Jenny for the Sissix cat and ghost dies. I put jewels behind the cat and ghost die cuts so their eyes shine out in real life. The jounralling strips in the sketch just had to be dymo strips in neon orange. More tape in lots of colours is on my list for our Christmas holiday.

Don't forget the December crop will be held at St Saviour's Parish Hall starting at 9.30am.

New sketch up at Allison Davis Now printed out and ready for Saturday's crop. I've had the reprint from Bentley's photographic with Matthew's name now correctly spelt and they sent me a second photo too, one for the mantelpiece and one for the scrapbook. I'm easily pleased.

Now if the customer service of our blind supplier was as good I wouldn't have a dark bathroom four months after they came to have a look at the blinds, because we can't now open the blind and they should have replaced it by now
