 Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you enjoy our new release!


Lots of craftiness has been going on here this week, making up for lost time!  You can see the 2 layouts I made at the crop here!
So, for WOYWW this week I thought I would show a different work station.
Here is my colouring station.  I am finding shadows when I try to colour on either of my desks so I have set this up at the window.  I do get a bit distracted with what is going on outside though!
 A different hummingbird, this one is a Rufus.
 Even managed to capture him on video although he gave up on the feeder when he spotted a bug, watch and you will see him take off after the bug!
Hope you will share your work space with us on WOYWW! Pop on over to Julia's blog for details!

Scrapbook Steals Midweek Mojo

At last I am up to date with the Mid Week Mojos over at the Scrapbook Steals blog.
Of course, this is merely because it is only week 2 of the current series!  I am determined to keep up this time!
This is the current MWM Pearl 2 designed by guest designer Katrina Hunt.
The kit I used is a former steal My Minds Eye Lost and Found 2 Sunshine

I was so lucky to attend a local crop on Saturday with my friend Kerys and some of the other Scrapbook steals community girls!  Although I didn't get these completely finished at the crop I did manage to get 2 almost done layouts.
the second one is the Pearl 1 MWM the sketch designed by Erin Schulz.  
If you can't tell, these 2 layouts form a double page spread. My favourite way to scrap!
 At the crop I also  got to test out todays steal  (Martha Stewart craft glitters) over at Scrapbook Steals.
I created a card for today's Monday Card Madness  following Kristy's fabulous sketch.
My little boat is sailing on a sea of Martha Stewart craft glitter hearts!
Although a very simple design it was not an easy card to make as I took only very limited supplies to the crop! 
 I ended up having to borrow the circle punches to execute my design!
This is the photo Kristy took of it and has used both on the Scrapbook Steals webpage and also on the Scrapbook Steals blog today.
Off to get caught up on some other crafty goodness!
Thank you for dropping by!

I have been missing in action lately.  Our Mums have been visiting for the past month and went home!  I have been moving back into my craft room  and have a lot to catch up with.  First, joining in again with WOYWW, not much, as my desk was completely given up for the month to my MIL but some stamps for a release next week, hence they are out of sight!  
 Next I need to sort out some photos and scrapping bits and pieces ready for a crop on Saturday...can't wait after my month of  abstinence!
 My wildlife pic this week is a cracker!  One I have been trying to bag for the past 3 years!  After at least an hour of waiting patiently, I finally got my pics! 

 Okay, back to work for me, lots still to organize after our house move, only got our furniture from our house in Scotland last week so that meant a little more chaos!
Hope to see you join in with WOYWW, pop over to Julia's blog for more details!
