June Craft Weekend (part one)

The first weekend of the month was, as usual, our craft weekend. On Saturday Sy and I went over to Karen and on Sunday we went to the crop at Cardinal Colours. The journey over to Karen's was eventful - a mature gentleman pulled out of a garden centre entrance.... right across the road and straight into me! He hadn't seen me, he said. Luckily it was all at slow speed so my door is dented but I am not :-) I had to be plied with sugared tea and jaffa cakes once we got to Karen's though LOL.

I did some cross stitch and - with Sy's guidance - an accordion book on Saturday. The latter is for a colleague at work, it's not quite finished yet. On Sunday I did 7 LOs, most of which need titles adding but I did finish the above DLO for Little Girl's 3rd album. I found the "seaside" transparencies in my paper stash (had completely forgotten they were there!) and the paper is from Provocraft, their River Rock scrap pad - I bought it in the States a few years back, not sure if you can get it over here. The swirls are cut on my new Big Shot - (whisper) - DH still doesn't understand why I bought it when I have a craft robo....... The small shell stamp is the free one with Craft Stamper and the larger one..... well I have had it a few years now and I have no idea what it is! Oh and I should say this LO was based on a pagemaps sketch, though I did wander from it a bit :-)

  1. Lovely layout - it was nice watching you create this on Sunday.

  2. Well done , I dont do double layouts any more as its too difficult sometimes to do one page let alone two !

  3. Well impressed with the DLO, I never do then as I can never get the balance right.
