I've been into it and loving it

A couple of LO's I've done recently.
More use of those wonderful Crafters Workshop templates. This time a 6x6 Daisy Cluster template with glimmer mist. This was exciting.
And this one is using the new Fiskars Lever punches. See some more things I made here.

Challenges and photos

A new challenge in the Scrapbook Studio forum for August here. My LO above. It's called some things old, some things new. I have a little pile of stuff lying round on my scraproom desk, leftovers from other projects usually. The chipboard strips were in this pile as were most things on this LO, so I made them into a fence (old chipboard). Old tool is the tree punch. Old metal is the wire for the fence. New patterned paper was the background one I made myself with a Crafters Workshop template, newest rub on is the little bird and newest stamp is the grass one by Montarga. Fun challenge!

Photo a Day - Day 6 - My craft area. Nothing exciting really. This is just my desk in a corner of my tiny craft room. I'm still waiting for my new room to be finished. This is tidy too, eekkk, doesn't look very tidy.
Haven't been able to get photos for Day 9 and Day 10. But hope to get one for Day 11.

Photo a Day - Aug 6th, 7th and 8th

I could not bring myself to take a photo just yet of my craft space - it is an absolute mess. So today I shall tidy it up and then take a photo.

But I do have a portrait photo for Day 7 of my cute cat Tink, though she looks a little grumpy here, probably because I was hassling her so much for a photo.
And this is a photo for today, Day 8, of my son James heading out for a surf. A sport that has been the centre of our lives for many years. I love watching him surf.

back later with my craft space photo I hope.

Photo a Day - Aug 4th & 5th

Day 4 - Somewhere you go everyday - this was a hard one other than the obvious. But when I looked down at the car stereo I realised, yes, that IS something I do everyday I'm in the car. I go to ZM 91FM on the radio. Yep, especially love it in the morning.

Day 5 - What's on your TV - Tonight I watch Vampire Diaries. Thursday nights on TV2.

And todays photo is - Your Craft Space - I'll back tomorrow with that photo.

Yes it's me back again. Been thinking about blogging again for ages. Found some cool downloads from Pugly Pixel and Kitschy Digitals to do a new banner etc which got me all inspired. The free downloads at Pugly Pixel are great and some real cute ones at Minitoko.

Check out the Photo a Day challenge on the Fiskars blog. Kim is giving ideas of what to photograph each day which I LOVE, so much easier and she has some great prompts coming. Today's prompt is FOOD. Here's what Rob cooked me for breakfast and an extra photo of the food pickings from my garden today. Then a photo of the first broccoli from my new garden - pretty proud of that one.

I did this LO for a Scrapbook Studio challenge. I photographed it last night so not a great photo. The challenge was to do a 12x12, use fabric, a stamp (love my new doilie stamp), chipboard and hand cutting of patterned paper. Tick to all those.

And here is the sneak peek of the class I'm teaching at Megan's Retreat.
