Finally some scrapping...

I haven't had the motivation lately, my mind wants to but my body doesn't. I did a couple of layouts for Puzzle Sketches a few weeks ago, you can see one of them at the moment over there, the other is coming soon. Wasn't happy with those but what can you do??

The following layout I have wanted to do for ages but couldn't get it right, then I saw the sketch over at Stuck Sketches and thought I might enter it for that so here it is.

I am quite happy with it. I used the original labelled ribbon from my grandpa's army uniform and the ric rac is also from my grandma's vintage stuff. I also used a replica rising sun badge and some vintage typwriter keys for the numbers.

On a personal note DH and I went to Strathalbyn on the weekend for a wedding. We stayed in a beautiful bed and breakfast called Peppertree Cottage and strolled the beautiful antique shops. I cooked a lovely breakfast and had it on the deck after a long soak in a hot bubble bath. Pity life isn't like that more often.

Hopefully I will have some more layouts or even cards, it's that time of year again so might get started on the chrissie cards to show you.

Take Care xx

Circle Journal...

Aren't friends wonderful!

Some of my dear friends I made through my store KTM presented me with a beautiful gift the other night. All this was going on behind my back, I was so surprised and touched by this wonderful gift. They all made a couple of pages to add to a Circle Journal with their pictures, personal info and a quote all in their favourite colours. I just have to add myself now. The pics are below which I pinched from Nic's blog including some flattering pics of me receiving it. I will cherish this gift forever and haven't stopped looking at it since I received it. Thanks girls!!!xxx
