The cost of winning....

I've been keeping any eye on a shop's blog - A trip down memory lane, and last week won a prize (yah! and as they were posting to me it would have been a shame to miss an opportunity!), so I added a few bits to the parcel and nearly £50.00 later I am waiting with baited breath for the box to arrive with all my lovely prima papers! Anyway, they have another sketch challenge and I decided to play along....

Here is the sketch -
And here is my interpretation of it....

I'm not being shy about showing the journaling, but have not gotten my head around what I am going to say - and I HATE HATE HATE my handwriting, so I think once I write on the layout it will be runined.... Papers are just yummy lush - from my Scraproom double shot kit that arrived early this week and my model was the Birthday Boy Warren, some photos that I snapped of him in my kitchen in late January this year. Actually once I've finished this I will probably give it to Lisa for her album for Warren. Still have lot's of the papers left and might do something else nice with them. Papers are from Upsydaisydesigns and are called Man about town.

We have friends who are celebrating their 40th Birthdays and had to sit down and make 2 cards, and the third was one I started to make and did'nt like so left it and made another....

Looking at the cards - all the papers came from Scraproom Double shot kits, just love them and was led willing to them by my friend Kathryn, who subbed to them and aother and liked these kits the most. The Pink card is the one that I was not too happy with - it's nice, but not what I wanted the card to look like iykwim....

Have a baby book looking at me, right in my line of view on my desk, screaming at me to be finished - so will have to jump in and just get onto it. The covers are all done, and I have now bought some more BIA wires to finish it - no excuses. What have you got on your "To Do" list that you have not face, I have another re-make to do of a 40th Birthday book that I've had back for ages and just cannot face taking it up again - anyone else like me!?!?!?!

Thats all for now - Byee!

Michelle, the layout is fabulous of Warren. The colours of the papers compliment the wonderful photos you took of the little man.

I love the cards and I particularly like the pink card... Again well done you!
