Chris is home this week and we have been enjoying some family time together and catching up on some jobs around the house. We redesigned part of the front garden yesterday. It looks great - yes, yes photos to come!! Only a few more days of holidays and then it's back to school. The holidays have gone so quickly

Learning a thing or two

and having some fun along the way. I have never been interested in digital scrapbooking. I like to actually do something with my hands. I have been following Ali Edwards blog this week. She has been doing tutorials for Photoshop and last night I tried them out. Oh wow, I think I'm hooked. It was so easy and quick, once you know how that is!!!! I don't think I can be converted to be a full digiscrapper, I will stick with hybrid - a bit of both.

Two pages from last night

Last Challenge

It's been a year already, it's so hard to believe that I have been on the Addicted to Craft Design Team for that long. Gosh it's gone fast.

Our last challenge was to scrap a photo, of a fellow design team member. I must say I was a little nervous about scrapping someone elses photo. I received the lovely new My Minds Eye Life Stories range to work and a photo of the lovely Hetty

Hetty scrapped a photo for me. You can see all the layouts on the design team BLOG

It's been such a pleasure working with these wonderful ladies. The new team will be announced in February.

Just for something different

A little sewing for something different :)

Rach was showing me these gorgeous fabric baskets she made and I decided to try one out yesterday. I was really happy with the end result. Very cute.
Then I had this bright idea that they would make lovely lolly bags for Kloe's birthday party tomorrow. Nothing like leaving things to the last minute. I altered the pattern and made them a bit smaller. You can see the original size on the left in the photo

I stayed up very late last night and made a total of 12 of them.Kloe loves them, I hope the girls do too.
