I had a second interview for a job yesterday at 9.30am. Came home and thought I'd catch up with an order, no chance! Dad called as he had locked his car keys in the car so a dash to Dartford with the spares. On the way, my daughter called to say the fridge wasnt working. Luckily my husband came home early so we investigated and yes, it had expired. The hottest day of the year so far of course and the day after a major shop which filled the fridge and freezer.
We went to Comet and luckily they had the one we wanted in stock. After much faffing around it was installed and up and running..Phew. Then we noticed the huge fault which runs the length of the freezer door - todays job.

With Shimelles Month of colour challenge in mind again, A day for Green crafting - June 15th - I created this DLO from the July 09 Scrapaholix kit. Pearl-ex was used on the letters mixed with glossy accents and in the corners brushed over images stamped with a versamark pad.
Below is an image of the flower detail.
We are just starting a Scrapaholix Club in Crayford and this is the first of the LO's for July. The technique is Pearl-ex which is similar to Glimmer-mist but comes in powder form. You can add to many mediums to create different finishes. On this one I simply rubbed the edges of the red card with a cotton wool pad which created a shimmering border.

Shimelles colour challenge, 16th June inspired this - a day for red, rose and pink crafting.

Robert and I married in Florida so we only had some 6x4 pictures. I am trying to create an album but with limited pictures its quite hard. There were 2 images of Robert before the ceremony and one of me so I cropped and enlarged them to create these LO's. The left side was based on a mojoholder sketch the right side made to match. I used the June Scrapaholix kit papers which came with distress stickles which I applied to the flower heads. I used punches to create the flowers and Vixen QK Alphabet.

I attended Wendys class at Papermaze, http://www.papermaze.co.uk/customer/home.php on Wednesday last week with Lynn, who I must Thank for letting me stay at her house. The LO on the right was the class page although I positioned the photograph on the opposite side. The LO on the left was to complete the double page.
I purchased another sheet of the green background paper and used the leftovers from the kit to create this one. I used Lynn's Cuttlebug Butterflys on the left as you can see from the white image below. The others were cut using Wendy's template.

Once I had made "me", I wanted to create the double page for it so decided to make this one of my husband Robert.
This is the other half of the photograph of me which I cropped. Roberts favourite colour is yellow so I tied the pages together with the Aqua colour from my page.
BG Urban Prairie papers.

Day One Challenge (just catching up) was your favourite colour.
I had trouble deciding which ones to choose as I like lots. In the end I chose pink and aqua with a hint of lilac.
This LO was created using BG Urban Prairie papers with a MM scallop floral circle.
The flowers were cut with my Woodware punches and candy dots added in the centre.
I wrote the journalling around the scallop with a white gel pen.
