Busy times

23:36 Edit This 1 Comment »
Sorry for the complete lack of blog action recently... Have had some time off work and been off round the country seeing family and friends and am off again today camping in the New Forest for the bank holiday. On top of that the house we were buying had fallen through (luckily it was us that pulled out not the vendors) but we are now trying to find somewhere else to live asap and just can't find anywhere - it's very stressful and quite tiring so by the end of the day I've been collapsed in a chair watching tele (well actually normally falling asleep).

I have done some scrapping at the Cove crop and will post photos when I am back. Hopefully when I am back at work my mojo will return and there'll be plenty more posts again...

Anyway just to post something here are some older LOs that I particularly like:

This week (so far)...

So the first LO I did this week was for the UKS weekly challenge. When I first read it I was uninspired but I was going through my old kits and found my lovely MME Bellazo papers. Inspiration struck reasonably quickly after that and this was my finished LO:

The challenge was to do a Love themed LO, incorporating some memories, a technique you hadn't used for a while and 5 of something. Shamefully my Slice had been sitting in the cupboard for months so I used that to cut the title (and am now back to loving my Slice again) and I used 5 blooms. Am really pleased with this LO...

On Thursday my new Scrapagogo kit arrived full of loveliness. Have got lots of ideas of piccys to scrap this month. This was the first and will also be my entry for the birthday bash challenge:

I also received back my first CJ which had a 'Happiness is' theme, sadly it's not complete though after lots of problems with the newbie CJ group. Luckily I have a backup team of volunteers from my scrapagogo CJ who are each going to do a LO for the missing pages for me so it will be appearing here completed at some point...

Plans for the weekend: scrap some more with my lovely new kit and print off the other photos I want to use, do an EHAS LO (my catch up has been sadly lacking) and to complete a LO with my fabby new MME stomp PPs which arrived this week. I am going away for some of the next week to see my folks in Yeovil so am going to take a minibook with me that I need to finish before the runways end retreat in September. Next weekend is Cove Crop so I also need to start thinking about what to take along to that...

This week's LOs

Am having a busy time at the moment so not managing as much blogging as I like, but have fitted in some scrapping. This first LO was for the UKS August challenge and the first challenge of the month on Studio 101 (see blinkie left) - doubt it will win any prizes but I enjoyed doing it:

My next LO I have been meaning to do for months since a trip to a local farm last February. We took lots of great photos so I picked my favourites and used a pagemaps sketch for a DLO. The papers are from Fancy pants and I really like the range of colours:

Finally I did one of my catch up LOs for Everyone Has a Story - am catching up but not as quickly as I wanted so am going to try and do some more this week too. This one is about saying thank you.

I loved this week's sketch, totally fitted in with my normal style of scrapping and already had a photo printed which I could see working really well in it. Anyway, this is what I came up with:

PPs and some of the flowers are from MME Bloom and alphas are from Basic Grey. The rest of the blooms were from my stash. i am very pleased with how this came out...
