Let's Get Sketchy Challenge

I'm on a roll today!  Do love a sketch to work from, which allowed me to complete this layout of Cassandra from 2015!  Only a few years behind..

This was the original sketch to work from... I kind of kept to it?!

Sketches in Thyme Challenge

So I've found a way to scrapbook.. I do a little bit each time I'm passing my craft room!  Takes me forever to get a layout done, but it's better than nothing..
I completed this layout following the sketch #348 over at Sketches in Thyme and was quite pleased with the results, AND I got to use up photos of Alexander that I've been meaning too for ages.

These 3 are my entire world.

All who wander...

I've decided that I like cut files.  This one was from Paper Issues that I put green cardstock behind and used buttons for the missing bits!

Perfect for the cut file/die cut challenge over at The Studio Challenges.


It's happening!!!!

So I had some WONDERFUL news yesterday..

Being the determined individual that I am, and despite a few setbacks, I'm thrilled to say that as of September 2019, I shall be training to become a wonderful TEACHER!!!!!!!!!!

Just not quite at this mathematical level!

My Sargent Stoat..

Life is just getting in the way of my creativity, but today, with all beasties out doing activities and the hubby too, I've grabbed an hour or so to get some challenges done.

In Year 6 after SATS, the kids are just biding their time until the Summer Holidays and moving onto Secondary school.  One event they do get to do though is the Year 6 Leaver's Production.  The year Alexander left it was Wind in the Willows and he was cast as Sargent Stoat.  We kitted him out and he really got into character.

So I'm entering this layout into Sketch and Scrap's challenge


The Scraproom Blog who have almost the identical sketch from Lisa Hidy


Getting good at carving....!

So this year, Nicholas asked everyone what they wanted to carve and printed pictures off.

Everyone did their own this year and I think they came out brilliantly!
