Oval all

Life has been busy round here. The school holiday were great, the weather was wonderful, nice sunny days cold starts but you don't mind if you get a nice day. We stayed at home and did things around town, I had my sister Heather and Jessica (niece) come and stay for a week. I love holidays no routines to follow. And I got 2 books read durning them.

I had a workshop last Wednesday evening, It was a great night with really lovely ladies.
Here is the make and take that they made, mine is a little different from what they made because on the night we used the Hostess Eyelet Border punch, it is on my wishlist.

Photos From Saturdays Scrap and Craft Escape.

Here are the photos From Saturdays Scrap and Craft Escape. Liz from Artfull Crafts is demonstrating a Kaisercraft Wall Plaque, she also demonstrated a Kaisercraft photo frame.
Here is the wall plaque that I did. I used Bella Bleu DSP. Kaisercraft wooden shape and paint. We used the Cuttlebug with Spellbinder Nestabilities to cut the centre frame, I will put a photo of Saturday into it. I embellished it will a flower using the SU Scallop Circle Punch and a spilt pin. they are so easy to make.
In the afternoon Liz demonstrated Kaisercraft wooden photo frames.
I covered my frame in Raspberry Tart DSP, I trimmed around some of the flowers then put them under a flower make with the Scallop Circle Punch. Then I finished it was a bit of bling in the centre of the flower.
Marilyn from Creative Memories demonstrated a cutie box thing, I not sure what it proper name it. I make mine with Kiwi Kiss Card Stock and decorated it with Sweet Nothing Simply Scrappin', I punched a scallop circle and cut it up into hearts to embellish it. Marilyn also demonstrated a card stock mini album, I have not finished mine yet. When I have I will post it for you to see.
We had such a great day. I'm looking forward to the next one.

I did this Scrapbook page very quickly last night. The photo is of Paul (my husband) stood next to 2 knitting machines that he had rebuilt from scratch, they arrived at his work as a frame only and rebuilt them to as new condition.

I used Brocade Blue stock card, I watermarked with VersaMark ink using Circle Circus stamp set. Urban Garden DSP, I stamping on the DSP with Old Olive ink using Circle Circus. I cut the circles (all the circle punches are on my wishlist) out then glued down, I have left a space to journal.
