Lazy Sunday - I wish!

Well its not a yucky busy day, as you can see new furniture arrived on friday and then we put it together on Saturday and I have been filling it ever since and suddenly realising how much stuff I have...
Confession time I am a craftaholic and I need help.

This is SOME of my stuff requiring a home in my new cupboard and then I kept finding more. I must admit it gave me a good chance to throw out or donate to school items I no longer would use, however it did not stop me going onto wild rose studio and placing several things into the online basket at which point Andrew walked in and I came to my senses saying what am I doing???
I am going to invite friends round to play and explore some of my crafty stuff so I can use up some of it. Actually at this moment I am making my head teacher a birthday card and a commisioned one that has to be funny???
The headtecher one is looking good i have used huge funky love making a 'four O' card and some blooms from poppicrafts, will have to post a piccie on here!

Here is the rest of the valentine book I made for Andrew. There is the one of the honeymoon then youth club holiday... Yes I started going out with him when I was 17 years old!!! 16 years ago wow nearly half my life. The one of us at youth club holiday is Andrew's favourite photo so had to go in the book. Below is us going round my Aunts in Sandwich in kent, our wedding day, engagement day
and visiting New York.

Valentines book

I decided to try out my new bind it all on a valentines book - I know very soppy I can hear you going YUCK!!! But it was a bit of an eye opener just seeing how much I have changed and seeing the old photos again. At the moment they are stored in photo albums in a cardboard box. I think using them in scrapping makes them fresher somehow???

Well what can I say but we (hubby and I) have had interesting times together

especially when I look back at some of these photos. Mind you my photography is not that great. Will need some hints and tips Debbie!

Here is my 21st 'era' party and above is the Chessington world Adventures ball photo
This was a friends birthday fancy dress and it was being held in the pub opposite Hampton Court so it seemed resonable to go like this! However Andrew needed LOTS of stuffing...

Chuff Chuff

Hi, me again... As promised here he is, good old Thomas. The little boy who has opened this by now asked for a few Thomas like things for Christmas and so I had to make a Thomas card.
I used a colouring page and decoupaged the image both his face and his buffers. I also used 3d gloss for the eyes.

Marie curie cards...

Well have taken photos of two and will bore you with more later. The boys card that I have made I have set up to show you tomorrow as he and his mum might get sneeky peeks before they get them this evening!!! All I can say is he is a big fan of a certain well known character... Can't say any more, you need to wait!

Change is good!!!

Well have just about got my voice and I have decided to craft like I mean it!!!!
So have made some cards for the family which I can't start charing with you til tomorrow. The reason being I haven't taken photos yet (as usual) and also the first person recieves their card tomorrow too so don't want to spoil the surprise.
I also decided to change my blog too it felt more spring like.
I have already made 2 - 3 cards for marie curie charity (one still in progress).
My green room (no longer pink room) is just about there we are looking for furniture and storage for my ever increasing craft stuff! Hopefully with all this cardmaking and book making I might see a dent in it eventually!!!
