And finally....a Crafty Post! Yay!!!!

Some crafting has been done and it feels wonderful!

Scrap Club was great fun yesterday at A Maze of Memories...a lovely sketch to work from and fun photos of Nick, friends to chat with and show off my red, sparkly trainers to, a yummy lunch taken home from the farm almost perfect Saturday (no football to watch, hence the "almost").

Sorry about the glare but it's so dark here (and wet and miserable) that the camera automatically used flash. I'm sure I must have done, but I don't remember doing a LO before with no patterned paper. 

The next LO is one I've been working on for a couple of days. This one is for my brother as it's the football team from his final year at Junior school. He's on the left (in "real life") of the Captain and my Dad is the teacher at the centre of the back row.

I used the Adorn It "Soccer Collection" again and added ribbon from my stash.

I was going to go to AMOM again today as Pat is working up there but I slept late (still not dressed) and it's still raining. I have some cards to make today so will snuggle at home instead.

Great motor racing weekend...the Le Mans 24 Hour race is almost over, we've had a double-header from the IRL and there's a F1 race this evening. David is a big fan, esp. of F1. I spent my year in France in Le Mans and have actually been to three races - spectacular at night. We used to go to Silverstone for the British GP but it became way too most sporting events in the UK.

I really need to do some food shopping but can't face the thought of Waitrose today......might raid the freezer and see what I can come up with..probably not a lot as I'm running it down to defrost and clean it. Could be beans on toast for Sunday dinner.

I hope you're all having lovely,crafty weekends.
Hugs xx

Lovely LOs. Time I did another LO, too! Here the food situation isn't much better, haveing eaten noodles 2 days running I have the choice between vanilla icecream and fish cakes, perhaps both! Hugs, Valerie

Great layouts Sue, especially loving the "Smile" one - what a lovely little boy Nick was :)

It's been grotty here today too, no let up at all, so I snuck into my Crafty Corner and had a lovely time - results to be blogged soon!

Hugs, Carole xxx

You do make me giggle when you mention football & racing as I have no interest in either but soetimes wish I did !

Yay for a crafty post Susie - always a good sign. I', actually on here while waiting for some grungepaper flowers to dry out in the shabby shed! Am starting two months early on three card/book type things for three of our graduate assistants who leave us at the end of the summer.

Have just been blog hopping for inspiration. Quiet day today with no children so am crafting, hanging out washing, loading machine again, crafting and so on. Might be joining you on the beans and toast brigade at this rate!!

Oh that's fabulous stuff, loving the colour scheme got one on my table in greens that I've been fighting with for over a week! Might go and attack it into submission now I've seen these gorgeous layouts - it's wet and miserable here too!

Joanna said...

Hooray, she's done some crafting!! Lovely LO's, you have been busy.

The weather is vile here today, the kids have just asked for the central heating to be switched on but it's JUNE, dammit! Go and put another jumper on!

Thank you very much. I know how you feel - both my parents passed away. I use digital images and I also find lots of freebie digital images which I also love to use.
