I've been a scrapp'in

Hi there, Ive been a long time absent. My mind has been else where lately, but here I am back again. Tonight I am tyring hard to get some cards made, so far I have completed half of one card and Ive been at it for 3 hours, so tonight has not been a huge success. I have also been playing with a computer programme lent to me from my lovely friend Kristi, who is the star in my scrapbook page below.....



Kristi come to stay with us a little while ago, she was lovely company so I just had to scrap the event.
I have lots of layering going on in this page, which is based on the sketch I put together for this months challenge over at Birds of A Feather.



This is another page using the same sketch, this time I have attempted a Vintage type page. (Sorry Christopher and Andrew I'm not really inferring that you guys are vintage)
I've never really mastered the art of 'Vintage Scrapbooking', I always add too much colour and too many embellishments.


 I found these acorn 'pockets' in the garden and thought they would fit right in!


 The 'boy' image was one I found on this lovely blog....  http://clearlyvintage.blogspot.com/


I love these Prima leaves and printed flowers, they add such a lovely texture.


Here is this Months Sketch and...

Tomorrow we are off to camp Iona Andrew has been asked to be the Guest speaker, at the moment he is busy working out what he is going to say...must say that his progress is not looking any better than mine! Could make for an interesting speech!

Bye for now, and thanks for looking :-)

My Scrapping

Here is my finished latest painting

This one is a hit with all the males who have seen it. I must say that I did not really enjoy painting a truck and it will be a one off for sure! Uncle David is now the owner of this one. Next project on thepainting scene is going to be a fisherman- for my Uncle Graeme who is wanting me to paint him something. Really need to get onto this one!

Finished at last- I think

At last I think I have pretty much finished this painting for my uncle. Do hope he likes it.
