A Kit For You :)

I have been involved in the Create A Kit Challenge over on My Scrap Shop and I am pleased to say I finally made it!!
I have so much Respect for designers after all the work that I have put into this, it's only the 2nd time I have attempted a kit, I did one for a Challenge on
MadDoodles so I may just get that kit out and share it with you too, that's if there are any takers for this one..lol...
I made everything including a Vector bow that took me ALL Afternoon today!!!
I just did one and that's my lot!! you can duplicate it, re-colour it, do whatever you want but I won't be making another in a hurry...:D
also included are 7 papers ( I think?..)...one corner paper, over a dozen Elements, a border,a couple of ribbons, 3 or so arrows, 2 buttons and 2 nice frames..oh and my BOW! and 2 Word Art's..:)
Here are the previews to the Kit, I named it Very Valentine, not a clue why but there ya go...lol..

Plodding On..

Back again :)
On Tuesday my hubby and I went over to Barcelona on a little business, we only had an overnight stay so didn't have the chance to get around anywhere much, there is so much building and road works going on it's a nightmare to drive around!
It took us over 45 mins to go 2.9 miles! so beware if you are planning a trip, we set off for the airport in plenty of time our flight was at 11, we set off at 8.30 and were running and got into the airport lounge gone 10.30! our flight was already boarding, what a rush!!
the only good thing was that it was the quickest we have ever been through an airport :)
To calm down some I have been plodding on with a couple more layouts this week.
the one below was made using a lovely gift from June at Cen's Loft for doing her weekly challenge, why not check it out and have a go!

Kit Used - JSCH_CH3_fleurspler by June @ website: http://censloft.blogspot.com/
Boy Labels by Creative Confusion Designs - www.creativeconfusiondesigns.com.
Boy Quote by Anna Aspnes of http://www.fotoscrapix.com/
Font used..Girls Are Weird

This 2nd layout was the actual layout I did for the challenge, it was so easy all we had to do was create a layout with Kitchen somewhere in it..I chose 2 pictures that I took last year of an old kitchen display that's set up at Oswaldtwistle Mill in Lancashire, it sure looked like hard work cleaning all that!

Kit Used - EumelinchenDesign_Heritage
Journoblock by June Schutrups - Cen's Stuff
Font - Blackadder ITC

This last one was another of my CT layouts created using the Beautiful kit It Feels Like Spring...
Background Paper from a freebie by Babs

My 1st Freebie

Hi there it's me again...and so pleased to be offering you a little something! but first here is a new layout from me using pieces of kits that I got all for Free!
Here's how....well I recently entered a Colour Challenge at
Stone Accents Studio
I am trying to make more time to get into the forums and to actually do something with all the freebies I have been collecting and sat on my hard drive.
I am fairly new to Scrapbooking and just don't have the time to try to learn how to create a kit just yet (but I will one day!) so I decided to create a Quick Page and to share it... I wanted to give a little something back for all the gorgeous kits I have been able to download from these Wonderful Designers...

The layout is of a pic taken on Skipton Canal, it's a Beautiful spot here in Lancashire and a lovely way to spend a day strolling along the river bank, seeing all the barges and wildlife, you can even take a short trip on one up the canal, where you can sample the easy pace of life.
We own a Caravan not too far away from there and spend many an hour wandering around, I would really love to hire a Barge and just go off for a week or 2, we would go through some of the most Beautiful countryside in England along these canals and locks...ahh Bliss.
Our two grandsons Liam and Josh like it as you can see :)
Well enough of me prattling on...
so if you would like to get it you can download it from >> Here << oh and a little comment would be lovely if you have the time... :)
My page was made entirely from Downloads from this Great Challenge, and talented Designers that have shared their work so generously...
Thanks to them ALL...

New CT!

I have some Great news!! I am now on the CT team for Cen's Loft !
I'm so flattered that June liked my work enough to invite me onto her team!

So the need to get myself sorted it more urgent than ever! I have made myself a late New Year's Resolution to Never let my PC get this bad again!!

Here is a layout I did using one of Junes freebies, it's called "Spice of Life" and she is giving it as a 4 part download, the last part is due out on Friday and I have to say it's one of my Favourite kits of June's..

The pictures I used are of my youngest daughter Julie, and now son-in-law Dave on their Wedding Day last March in Florida...don't they make a Lovely couple! ahhh

Computer Woe's

Hi there, it's been a few days since I have been able to get back on here, I am busy trying to sort this mess of a computer out of mine, I have recently got it back after having it upgraded..so it's been re-formatted too. I have stuff all over my spare drives that desperately need sorting out...

Why I let it get so bad I don't know :-( I do try to keep on top of it but I keep letting myself get sidetracked..

I have been making a couple of pages up for a couple of forums that I m a member of and am pleased with the results

here is a Quote Challenge page

I did 2 versions of this one without the frame, I like them both but will just show this one...

the Template I used way a New Years Template by Lorri of - http://www.lorrisscrapsandmore.blogspot.com/

and the kit used was by jolqa of http://www.jolqa.blogspot.com/

The 2nd layout is a page I created of 2 of my granddaughters, Jasmine and Ebony for a Candy Jar Challenge by Angela Niehaus.....
she supplies the kit and you use it to create a page!
Thanks for looking and please pop back in again sometime when you are passing and say Hello :)
