Two new LOs

I was off work today so had time to "play". The first LO was originally meant to be for a magazine call, but I realised i was too late to submit! Oh well I like the LO anyway and as it's for my BOM it goes perfectly with one of my recent themes..... ie trying to include myself in my scrapping a bit more!

I think the title asys it all.... BRING IT ON... 40! yup next year I hit 40, like my journaling says it's just a bit "scary"!! I'm not sure why whenever I take photos of my LOs indoors they look so uneven in colour! In real life this does not seem so "off"!

The second are just a few of the photos we took yesterday. I saw this idea first a few moths ago, then again recently on Charries photography blog (thanks hun your gorgeous photos gave me the reminder that I wanted to try this). Apologies for the "flash" and the slightly off colours I had to take this photo way after the light was gone!!

Well back to work tomorrow so I don't think I'll get to be having this kind of fun again!!

Been creative again.

I've been having a bit of fun this weekend trawling the blogs and sites.....

I kept finding myself looking at LOs and cards which have loads of embellies "layered" on top of each other. I love the controled clutter look that some folks seem to be able to pull off. I gave it a try but it ends up being very similar to what I usually do! I just can't seem to bring myself to keep adding extra layers and/or never have the right bits to go together with my LO.

Here is my attempt anyway.
I also started making some cards which I plan to give as a christmas gift. I'm going to make a decorated box to put the in too. (assuming I like them when I'm fiished.....the jury is still out on this idea).

Am I the only one??

Who gets the creeps every time they look at Magnolia and Sugar Nellie (and the like) stamped images?? I mean podgy, cutesy kids with no mouth....what is that all about?? Sorry but I just find them plain creepy, no matter how "cute" the overall effect may be.

OK so I'm weird, sorry if I offend anyone!

The proof!

Well here is the proof that I did actually scrap! oh and make a card too.

Well I Scrapped!

So it finally happened today, I scrapped....and mad a couple of cards. I've not taken pictures of them yet, but I'm pretty happy with how I've managed to "break my Duck"!

I've spent ages today stalking my favourite blogs..... Thankfully Hubby & Ross were too busy watching films to bother about it.

So a couple of links to my favourites from today:

Crafters Kitchen
Check out the "candy" and the stupendous christmas cards, oh to have half that talent!

Just give me stamps
I love the variety on this Blog.

Beates Verden
I could pour over the tiny details of these LOs for hours.

Well that's a taste of my Saturday. Hope I get some more time tomorrow as I am sooooo in a crafting mood now.

Pintless Question No 2....

I'm in a rut and Can't seem to get inspired by anything (at least not enough to kick my rear into action)...... I know most folks look at on line galleries, challenge bolgs, competitions etc to get them started again.

So what is the question I hear you asking??

Other than traditional Scrapping and Card places where else do you find new inspiration?

I've found myself looking at paintings and other are sold on Etsy and going back to my Art History books.

Other stuff.....

Scrapping : ZERO
Family: LOADS
Homework: TOO MUCH (come on guys he's been back to school one week, and he's only 6.... give us all a break!).
