My Mini Book

We take it in turns on our team on UKS to run a little challenge for the rest of the team ( I still need to do mine)
This was Dee's and she created this fantastic mini book with full insrtructions for us to do.Why dont you pop over to her blog and you can download full instructions Here
I decided to do mine on some of the places I love too - its been a labour of love with lots of hand stitching but I'm pretty pleased with the way its turned out

and a few close ups of some of the pages -
I called mine home and away as although I love travelling its always lovely to come home and I do love my home

Portrait Photography Workshop

I'm currently doing a 4 week photography work shop on how to photograph people by Cheryl Johnson
This week was to use an adult model - my wonderful prospective daughter in law Helen obliged. It was hard to tell who was the most nervous but we did end up enjoying the session. I found it easy to choose my location for the shots but not so easy to direct, but we muddled through and I'm quite pleased with these

Scrap a Sketch May

It was my turn to choose the sketch for this months Scrap a Sketch Challenge and as usual we had a mixed response to the sketch - some loving it and some finding it very challenging. I love to see what everyone comes up with from the sketch as they are always so different

My LO is using my My Creative Scrapbook kit and as the papers really didnt match the photos totally I ended up colouring all the little hexagons and chevrons on the background paper and the border strip. Time consuming but worth it. The story really is of me dropping all my Granddaughters cupcakes whilst putting them in the fridge after she had spent so long making and decorating them. These are actually the second batch and she asked to put these ones in the fridge herself obviously not trusting me to do it :lol:
