Last but not least for today

is my gorgeous girl on the beach in Santa Monica.
Using up bits of old kits until there's only enough left to make a card is something I love doing - I like to get my money's worth!

Beach Beauty

You may see a card or two on here tomorrow...

Those self timer moments ...

Just a quick one. This layout convery those many moments that we have as a family trying to get silly pictures using the camera's self timer. It's not easy you know when your husband can't countdown from 10!

+ Again...

Last night's efforts

Good morning to all my followers (that'll be one then!)
This layout was created out of anger for my husband and dog last night. I can't sleep when I'm cross so my page created serenity and calm before I went to bed!!

My Lesson

I really don't like Tuesdays

Tuesdays at the Citizens Advice Bureau send my brain into meltdown mode. After a full day of dealing with some difficult issues it was lovely to come home today and indulge in some crafting. Although it took a while to get going, I'm quite happy with this page. I wanted to keep it "old" so a bit of scrunching and inking was exactly what the doctor ordered to get rid of the issues of the day.

On a roll...

Ok, so now I've started a blog, I suppose I have to keep it up!
Until yesterday I hadn't even looked at one of my kits from Sarahs Cards for at least four months never mind use one.
The challenge got me going and with the retreat coming up and Haslington Crop on Saturday, my craft mojo is coming back slowly - I just needed that kick up the ...... to get me going.

My next layout I wanted to keep simple. The photograph fits across the page perfectly and I didn't want to take anything away from that beautiful picture. Again I've used my February kit with a bit of stash added from my ever mounting collection of goodies. (I must ged rid of this "it's too nice to use attitude!)

So, I've used my February kit from Sarahs Cards for my layout "13. Really!" as the colours went perfectly with the clothes my daughter was wearing for her 13th birthday photo shoot.

13. Really!

Fun Together (at Dad's expense)

To the moon and back

"Fun Together" is another layout using my February kit. I don't normally journal
 on my layouts becuase I hate my handwriting but this one was just calling out for an explanation
for all to read. It basically tells the story of us laughing so much that we were crying.
 It took 9 attempts to get this series of photos. There were many with no heads, feet etc
 and at one point we swerved so hard because Nick forgot to move out of the way
 that we almost fell off.

"To the moon and back" was created with leftovers from my kit 
(I like to use every bit possible) and to prove that pink isn't just for girls!!

A Challenge and a half...

So, this month I've decided to take part in the challenge over at SARAH'S CARDS.
I finished my LO before realising that all the other lovely ladies who have entered have a blog to display their work - hence the title for my new blog!
So, my entry for the February challenge was indeed a challenge (and a bit more)!!!! And here it is...

Point Break
