I really enjoyed doing these so let's hope I can keep up with the swaps. I am anticipating that now all the children will be at the same school and my hours have changed slightly life might provide me with a little more free time!

Over on UKStampers Gail challenged us to do something with a potato. I don't mean eat; something arty! Well there were some very arty carvings done so I went a whole lot simpler and cut mine into a leaf shape, some flowers and some potato shapes.

The other day my friend Gilly came over for a day of crafting. She brought with her the Tim Holtz edge dies and said that I could borrow them for a week or two. So I HAD to make a little book didn't I? I also used the tattered floral die for the cover and all was good until I got to cut the pages. Now maybe I am just fussy but I found it REALLY hard to cut all the pages so the holes on the scallops matched up exactly. And that bothered me so I am not sure if I will bother buying this particular die; although it might be good just for edging one page when scrapbooking....
Anyway I decided to use it as a journal for my holiday in N Yorkshire and duly scribbled and doodled away all the things we did and left a few spaces for pics and tickets. It was also quite nice to sketch a bit....not that I can draw but I like to try now and again!

Then the whole year sang a song...I missed this bit; the service had already been well over and hour long so I was just sooooo late that I HAD to go to work.
Our last feeble attempt in L fortnight was to make some lemonade. Jess got zesting...
...then we put it through the seive. Very easy, I don't know why I haven't done it before really! Eliza did make some lemon cakes...but we ate them before we took a pic!
Another fortnight done; we did plan to go to the Long Man of Wilmington but just ran out of weekends. Jasper went to Littlehampton to stay with his Grandad too but we took no pics of that either.

But not too sure about this one...I had just a few nice pics of Christmas Day and as ever none of the colours matched so finding paper was really hard! I like the design etc but I wonder if it needs a bit more something? And I don't know whether to add a title/journaling and if so, where and how!
Yesterday I finally went to visit Burns Cabin! And I did some creating too which I will show tomorrow if I get a mo to finish it tonight. I am a bit snowed under with soap-wrapping at the moment....
