Not Blogging!!!

OK so I have not been blogging again for a while.

There is not a lot to talk about at the moment. My friend has come out to live with us for a few months, so it is great having someone to talk to again. I have been getting frustrated with paypal as it will not verify my payment for the design collective this month and I really do not want to miss out on any of the classes.

There is not much more to say really, a very boring time.
Other than the tourists are arriving and driving me insane and the season has just started!

Oh well...

A heart for sharing!

I have been following Shimelle's blog for a while now. This month she has been sharing a few things with us, the first was making these felt hearts.

The main problem I had doing this was trying to find felt on this island. I looked everywhere but could not find any. In the end I had to get my mum to send me some from England. I have seen on a few blogs some really good felt animals made so I think I will have a go at them as well.

Sorry about the quality of the photo but it was the only one I managed to get before my battery's ran out.

Quiet week at work!

It has been so quiet at work this week, but that has given me time to finish my slide mailer from last months design collective.
I could only get a double mailer so I have made it into more of a picture frame than a key ring. I have still put a ring on to it so I could put it on to my bag if I wanted, but I think it will stay on my desk at work.

I have not done much scrapbooking this week. I did just do a scraplift from Terrie Farrell's blog, it is called Emily.

I used some photos we had done before we left England. The paper I used has a compass in the middle which you cannot see to well on the photo and I just cannot cut a straight line no matter what I use.

I am still doing the slide mailer from the DC site and I should get the coaster book finished this week, so I will get them on the blog as soon as I can.

I have found if I keep my postings short I can get them to publish, so this will do for now.

I WON!!!!

I do not believe it I won with my frog crown. There were only two of us in the gallery (mine went in twice by accident and I don't know how to delete it) and I thought the other crown would win as it was fabulous. A lot of time and effort had gone into making it and it was something that could be worn with pride. But my little frog crown won???

My Crowning Glory

The last challenge I managed to get done today was to make a crown. Well I knew I would not have the time to make one for myself so I put one together for the frog that sits on my desk at work. I think he looks good in it but the photo I put on the gallery is not that good.

I have had fun the last few days doing these challenges as I have never done anything like this before. I do not think I will win any thing as the standard of work on the gallery is amazing, and the things I have done have been done for the fun of it.

Loo Key Tag!!

The second project I tackled was to make a tag for your craft bag. Well as I do not have a bag yet and the one I am getting comes with its own tag, I thought I would make a tag for the loo key at work. I used just the paper that was on my desk and my quickuts to add decorations. I think it looks all right, and it does the job I haven't lost my key since I put it on this!!!

First Project!

I have just finished the first project of the day. It was to use a 6x12 layout. I have never done this size before so it was a bit of a challenge to come up with something original and new. I have used Bazzil cardstock and a transparency that I downloaded from 3peas. I think it looks OK. The photo was one that was done for her 16th birthday.

National Scrapbooking Day

Its national scrapbooking day and the Design Collective have a great collection of challenges on there site. I am hoping to get a few done this weekend. I will post them as I have finished them.

Lets try again!!!

OK I know you will not believe me but I have been trying to post on here for the last two weeks. I think I might of got to the bottom of the problem. I post in the afternoon after I have done what needs to be done for the shop but by then America is just waiting up and I have a problem getting on to blogger. Well that's my theory.

I am going to keep this short and see if I can get it to download.
