Yes it's been aaaaages since I updated hasn't it? Life I'm afraid; lots of it, some good some bad but all too much! So I haven't crafted for about 2 weeks apart from a rush job birthday card or two. So after a particularly stressful week I decided to dedicate Saturday evening and today to finishing my little houses for Flos swap. So here is a taster, a close up of two and then all en masse. I decided to do my houses as a whole street and it's occupants. They are not numbered in sequence as I had this vision of it being a street after the war in a suburb where some houses had been bombed out. Mmmm that sounds a bit morbid now but as lots of my images were 40s/50s I thought it fitted rather well. They are quite simple, distress inks and a bit of background stamping, but I had great fun thinking up personalities for the residents. I am now off to ask people how to turn my pics around!

Ok well as you can see I have been scrapping again! Now maybe someone will kindly tell me WHY one of my pictures is sideways and more importantly how do I turn it round?

Well, not been able to post for a day or two as I was back to work! And then Monday night is Brownies and cello, Tuesday night is Guides etc etc!
This LO I did on Sunday but didn't manage to do the title or the flower embellies. So I found a spare hour this evening and finished it off. I am a novice scrap booker and this is my very first DLO for ME! I am doing a heritage album for my Mum and have done 3 or 4 in that but that's it!
Now I have to get on with my little houses for Sarah's swap (closed now but here's the link if you want to see them when they are done.http://www.ryan-kesler.com/swaps/littleboxes/)
Thanks for looking!

I am a bit behind myself now! After I posted yesterday I managed to make 3 ATCs for the monthly swap on UKStampers. The theme is black and white. Now sometimes I can spend hours trying to come up with one ATC but these three came together in a couple of hours! I actually began my papercrafting with ATCs 2 years ago and for about a year they were ALL I made. Now I only do them for the monthly swap as I have discovered my latest fad....scrapbooking!
Today I went to ESK in Eastbourne 'cos I had seen an advert for a Craft Day. Well it's NEXT weekend!! Still I did buy some paper and ribbon to scrap Jess's ballet pics and have spent a relaxing evening doing that. I'll show tomorrow!! However my best bargain was an A2 cutting mat for £3.99! I have seen them for £15 in Lakeland so I was really chuffed with that!
I have tried to add links to some of the blogs that I enjoy reading......but they don't work! I need to have a little chat with my friend Linda so I can get them on for you! Mmmm I need to work out these pics better too....not sure why my leopard is sideways????
