A Good Weekend

What a fab weekend!!!! I was lucky to spend a couple of nights away from home with a few great friends and new friends... lost of fun and lots of laughter, not to mention lots of scrapping!!! (the paper type not fisty cuffs...LOL)

We gave the lovely Dee a challenge to make a page with no white space and we picked the most disgusting papers we could!!!!! the amazingly talented Dee did well......

This one is a sneak peek of what Indigo Mill have in store in the coming weeks...

and look out for Indigo Mill February kit, I managed to get 3 mini books out of what was in the kit and only added a couple of book rings, every thing else was from the one kit as supplied!!! pics to follow on this one .... as the photographer (rosie) has them!!!!!

..Oh and if you think you got away with not having your picture posted on here Steph, think again, only Carla and Marie managed to escape before the camera came out !!! LOL.................

Chip Boad Challenge

OH my what a lazy blogger!!!! Sorry I haven't blogged for a couple of weeks !!!

work has been what can only be described as manic and i am totally shattered....have still found a little time to craft, I have had a couple of tag books hanging on the shelf since before Christmas and I just kept looking at them and thinking that I must do something with those!!!

Well for the BG challenge blog I have transformed these plain chip tags using Tim Holtz distress paint, embossing powders and BG papers (form a few different ranges - perhaps, dasher, two scoops..)... all put together with a few flowers and gems.

The Heritage photos are one complete family ... my great grandparents and all their children.... Emily was my Nan.

thanks for looking ... i am really pleased with this one and was so happy to find picks of all 8 children and both parents...a real treasure xx
