Well the old boy is finding things a little more difficult to get around, so we got him his own wheels. Still trying to get the stroller conversion so we can take it for a walk but for now Samurai gets to ride in style......... (Kenny powered!!)

Well not really a busy weekend...just slightly preoccupied with the fact that Kenny came home on Friday , so been spoiling him with lots of home cooking, and generally just chilling out together, how I've missed him!! Samurai was VERY excited to see him home again!! Did manage to finish another layout on Saturday though. When I bought my "fit flops" all I kept thinking was I must use this disc as an embellishment! Also managed to finally use some old basic grey die-cuts that I've had for ages, and glimmer misted some plain prima flowers.

I got up this morning and it was pretty horrible weather so the perfect opportunity to give my scrapping room a complete clean and tidy up and to unpack all my stuff from the crops. Definitely had to blog a photo, I haven't seen it this tidy since I first set it up!!

Another great crop with the ladies from Scrap Cafe!
This months crop challenge was to use this sketch for the basis of a layout. Amazingly this time I was highly motivated by the crop challenge and actually managed to complete a whole layout, even if it did take me the whole crop :o) The fiddly bit that took so long were the chip board letters which I covered with patterned paper, sanded the edges smooth then distressed them to make them stand out more. After that it was pretty much smooth sailing using some of Tim Holtz alterations die cuts and then a little victory dance for Mel's amusement when I finally finished it.
I was quite pleased with the finished layout, and to sugar coat it even more I actually won the scrap challenge!!

It starts in a box.................
I love buying things from Craft Boutique!!! Its always so exciting when it arrives, it feels like you're receiving a present! The postman came early this morning and delivered it at 8:30, I left in til 17:00 until I opened it my perverse way of making the excitment last :o)

Had a lovely surprise delivered this afternoon, an incredible bunch of flowers......2 dozen long stem roses!!! How spoilt am I. The sweetest bit was the card and I'm not 'mad' at him, just missing him a lot as I've barely seen him for the past 6 weeks. Can't wait until he's home for longer than just 2 days.

Well I finally finished the layout that I started on Saturdays crop!! I was inspired by a sketch and LO in the activity pack of issue 46 of Scrapbook magazine so decided to 'lift' it. Struggled a bit at first matching the papers and purple (not a colour I've scrapped with before) hence me spending the crop shuffling PP a lot. Quite please with the way it turned out although I have decided I'm crap at doodling, must practice that more. :)

What a fun day!! It was great to catch up with Jacqui again and to meet the lovely ladies from her crop. Mind you I really needed to go for an extra long run today, they make gorgeous cakes in that crop!!!! As for my layouts, I forgot my box full of embellishments!!! I cut out 2 photos, some PP, shuffled, shuffled, and shuffled again. In the end I didn't even complete 1 Layout! Crikey that's bad, Mel's going to be giving me crap for ages!!!
