Good morning crafters :)
both of my girls are poorly sick today so a quiet duvet day at home for us.... as Elsie's asleep on the sofa i can catch up with you guys here real quick and show you a little of what i've been up to this past week.
Carole and I had our crafty day as usual this week! hooray we have our day back! and ok its changed from a Wednesday to a Tuesday but at least we get a day that we can share crafting.
Its really weird when you meet someone who is completely on your wave length, Carole and I met through a Shimelle Laine class.... we visited each others blogs for a while, then found each other on face book and talked there, eventually we spoke on Skype a few times and then met up.... now I feel lost if i don't speak to her in a few days.... its really weird lol
living so far apart we don't get to see each other for real very often, sometimes we meet in Clarks village for a shop and a coffee and Carole has travelled up to my crop which was lovely but usually we just meet on Skype once a week to have a crafting day together.
It usually ends with her telling me to get on with it, or me telling her not to be such a chicken when it comes to wet stuff :) and we always end up creating nice things, quite often when we don't have anything specific to do we choose a sketch and work on it together.
This happened this week (altho I did have a ton of other craft commitments but sshhh)
Carole chose a sketch and we both did it.... this is my version of that sketch:
When Carole posts hers on her blog i will link you up as we NEVER end up with anything that looks in the slightest bit similar. this comes from Carole following rules and me being a complete rebel as she likes to call me!
Find Carole HERE!!!
I did start by sticking to the sketch, but I didn't like it so I took it a part, played with it a bit and ended up with this... please have a look at how different they are, it never ceases to amaze me lol
This is the second page that i almost finished during our crafting session:
I say almost finished as I had to leave to pick Elsie up from Zoe's and Lola from school so I didn't quite finish it in the time i had but i think its done now....altho i may add a small title to the journalling block when i get a minute.
Pics are of Paul, his cousin Graham and his uncle Nigel.
I took them in Bude last weekend when we visited for the wedding of Chris and Steph.
this was the day after the wedding when the boys wanted to go for a surf.... they were very brave as i was freezing just stood watching, and even more so when i got soaked by an unexpected wave coming in but thats another story :)
I hope you've enjoyed these.... If any of you are interested, I'm making class kits for crop and any other people who may be interested.
I will release one per month and it will include everything you need to make 1 page including instructions (you will also have leftovers to include on other projects)
The first one I have done will go on sale at the next crop on the 13th October and costs £5.50
I have limited numbers of these as stock can only go so far but if you are interested in purchasing one please let me know and I will add you to my list.
thanks and bye bye for now xxxxxx
