Orange Fat Book Page

Ok I have made this hoping that Hels cheeky monkey that she is will NOT at some point make the theme for Sunday Stampers orange.

Hopefully this will demonstrate I can use the colour orange(yuck) successfully and she won't beat me round the head and put it as a challenge one week, pretty please Hels :)

Inspiration Wall

OK this post has been building for a while and finally I have got my butt in gear to take a picture.

I can't take credit for all the work in this picture and I'm sure some of the poeple that read this will recognise some of work involved. Unfortunately my camera can't take a picture of the whole wall which is crammed with fat book pages, tags and ATCs and is still growing.

If I'm stuck this is my newest tool to help get rid of crafters block.

When I finally got my own house this year I decided I wouldn't stick my swap in boxes so this is how the idea came about. Thankyou everyone who I have swapped with so far and all those to come you do help me more than you realise.

OK now some of you may know I popped to Milton Keyenes for Collectormania this weekend.

It was soooooooooo busy on Sunday because John Barrowman and some of Team Torchwood were signing Sunday only. Kai Owen who plays Rhys in Torchwood as well as David Prowse AKA Darthvader were signing that day as well as Eve Miles who plays Gwen from Torchwood and Brain Cant from Playschool.

There were also some more familiar faces that I'm sure everyone will recognise :)

Critters Envelope and Insert

I wanted to have some fun with this one after thinking about it so I borrowed a stamp from my mate Mel.

Time to Craft - Week 10 Framed

Ok so these won't be in order these challenges but I am determined to get them all done,
Here is my attempt with frames for My Time to Craft because I thought it went well with a rock hard fairie :)

Sunday Stampers - Week 15 Boys

This is a fat book page I am using in a decoupage swap I am taking part in. The stamp is from Creative Expressions and I painted him and stamped Boys down the side using a See Dee Set of alphabets.

Sunday Stampers - Week 12 Family

Ok I found this a little difficult just because of the stamps I have but I am luck enough to have a fab friend Mel who has a diffrent style to mine so I used one of hers.
I like it cuase its cute plus I love all the animals too :)

Sunday Stampers - Week 11 -Ticket to Ride

Finally I know its been a long time coming. I don't have a ton of travel stamps so I went with something different that I thought might make you smile :)

"I@m the kind or person who sees things with my eyes"

OK this is me being a bit micheviouse but basically it is because the other half quoted the above to me while having a conversation about learning to cook something. I have taken the mickey ever since. Sorry Babes! but it has to be done :)

As a result I was playing with my new stamps last night and this is what I came up with :)
