Mini Album

And for my second finish of the day, 
a mini book, "Mia Growing Up"
using New Bloom papers, i cant actualy fill it yet as my printer has packed in, so need to go printer shopping!

Beautiful Frame

My idea for this frame changed a bit as soon as i started, 
it was going to be inked or painted with stamping and alsorts but then i just liked the clean white of it so the only colour i added was from the backing paper and the photo the rest is just pure white.
 hand made flowers and die cut flourishes

Bird House

I was merrily punching out circles last night, didnt realise what the time was until him in doors came to bed saying what on earth is all the banging? twas me and my punch, so seen as it was 11.30pm i thought i had better stop..........
oh dear cant sleep,
 all i wanted to do was go back and carry on punching out my circles, hundreds of them, well about 220 to be precise lol 
so i had to be happy with counting sheep!!!
so you may ask why so many circles??

cause i was making this........
 and on to the next project, 
this time its a sewing project, 
well i have to get them all in before work on thursday.

 Off to London we went yesterday on the coach....in the heat....but had a fantastic day, first stop Camden market where we had Chinese for brekkie, well you have to on a day out don't you??...... well we did!
and fab it was too!
Love Camden market !!
it was far too hot to be walking everywhere and i just cant walk that far at the minute so we decided to get on one of the open top tour buses,i highly recomend doing this.
 a little worried about the heat but off we went, it included a boat trip down the Thames, which we did first, 
loved it, 
saw tower bridge doing its opening thingy

 It was then back onto the bus and we did the whole tour, worried about the sun and being on there but the breeze kept us cool and seeing everything from up there was fantastic and seeing things we would never have seen on foot.

Plenty of water was consumed, i bet they made a killing yesterday, especialy with the prices of drinks etc, but it had to be done!
a big cone of gorgeous crunchy chips n mayo before we left.
Hobbled back on the bus in much pain and then took myself off to bed after a bowl of strawberries but we had a fab day, already planning our next trip which will include going into a lot of the places we saw yesterday, so let the saving up begin, plenty of pennies needed!!

Lots n Lots of Glue!!

On saturday, a very hot saturday!
 we made sewing boxes, or boxes for whatever you want them to be for!!
there was lots of glue involved and only a tiny bit of sewing !
the ladies had fun and this is what they came up with
 notice the co ordinated pegs on Sue's!
 or not in Nualas case lol
