Anyway, I used Julee's sketch week no42 (Poetic Artistry) to give me a kick start! I wanted to make a couple of cards for my nephews finishing nursery and P1...already!! This image of Edwin was perfect for the job and as you can see I've kept it very simple...just my style!!
This is another I made for them...thanks to Ila for the images...they were perfect for this time of year!! I used Fancy Pants paper (both sides); I like that torn jotter look...but as I don't have the punch (yet!) I just "made" the effect myself...I used my hole punch then ripped each hole! On another card I used the scissors to snip a tiny bit out of each hole, I preferred that look, but I thought I'd share my improvisation with you all!! bx

In all I took 13 classes...a few little hiccups with some, but with the exception of one class (which I had been really looking forward to...!) they were fab! This is the front cover of a little mini book I made in a Making Memories class using the 5th Avenue collection. It was an excellent kit, we made this fabulous 6x6 album, excellent tutor (Jeannie Damovich) - I LOVED it!! I just need to add some photo's and a few embellishments and it's done!
Really tonight I just wanted to announce the winners of the RAK..since I am a day late with this I pulled an extra name from the hat!! So without further ado could Julee, Natty, Tami and Wendy email me their addresses please and I will get their RAK in the post to them within the next couple of days!
I haven't gotten around for a blurf yet as my household chores were calling me bigtime but I will catch up soon! bx

I received this lovely package from Alice Golden - so many thanks Alice! The layered doodle flower is the one I used to make my felt flowers...these flowers are also ideal for the cellotape/patterned paper technique demonstrated recently on the fab Hero Arts website...that will have to wait until after scrapaganza though!
