Sorry I haven't blogged for over a week but I haven't really felt up to it.
Dad is not improving at all and it's a constant struggle to get him to eat or drink anything. I'm phoning and asking for his GP to visit tomorrow. Just hope he can help.

I'm far away from my stash and am missing scrapping. I managed to make a card for a b'day I'd forgotten about (have a small stash here but mainly for cards) but no camera- so no photo!
The picture above is of my altered clock - minus hands (a long story but it will be finished eventually.) I had a great day sitting with Diane at A Maze of Memories - it was lovely to just craft without interruptions.

The LOs and card were made on Sunday for a crop on WeScrap - these were three of eight challenges (only managed three as the crop started Saturday but I didn't join in until Sunday).
The first LO had to be about our favourite holiday and include  three photos,a tag,either stitching,buttons or ribbon (I managed all three!).
The second was a challenge to do a LO in French - right up my street! The photo is of me with Serge (the boy whose family I stayed with) in 1969. I uploaded the photo for the "I dare you..." challenge which was to show a photo from your High School years. Thought I may as well use it for a LO too. The title isn't clear but it's "Moment de detente a Paris". Papers are Lavender and Lace (from AMOM).
The final challenge was to do a card or LO with pennants. I made the card for Vicky's 21st - it's changed a bit since the photo was taken - I took the black shrink plastic off and replaced it with white - stamped with butterflies and the no 21 and silver ribbon through  a hole in the top.

I'm off now to sort through more old photos.
