OMG I can't believe....'s been nearly 2 months since I have been on here.... WOW that time went by so quickly!!

But I have been in hospital & been busy with tests... I haven't been on here or the Cricut site or any of the challenge sights for so long, so hopefully I can get back into it all; now that I have my results & things are settling down.

My other venture has been pushed back too, I was to start card making & scrapbook classes this month, but hopefully next month...


So to get back into the swing of things, my Sister & I went away for the weekend with a great group of ladies on a scrapping retreat & it was wonderful!! It was a pretty place, very relaxing!!

Card Organiser

I've had a few days off making any cards, I banned myself from making anymore until I had sorted out the mess I had created in the large container, my hubby got me to put my cards in. I had just been slipping them in there as I had made them & looked the other day & thought OMGosh that's a mess!! I thought; if someone wanted a card or I needed one, I would have to go through them all to see what's what.... so I made these dividers, sorted the cards into the different sections & placed the MDF chipboard dividers inbetween & now it's much neater... & better still, I can see them all ...


Birthday album

Here it is!! 2 Sketches 4 You Ultimate Card Showdown. This is the sketch provided by the wonderfully talented Laura, hop on over to the site for more info.

This is my take on her sketch, I have had this KAISERscrapbook - beyond the page album for ages & decided I will add black & white pages to it & give it to my sister for their Black & White party she & my hubby are having together. I figure she can print out some photo's from the night & place them in here.

So I used Laura's sketch to do the front cover.

DP: oneheart-onemind - for.'mal.itY, KAISERcraft - Ebony & Ivory
Cricut Cart: George, Wedding Solutions & JOTS
Acc: MS Doily Border Punch, ribbon, rhinestones, lge button & heart brad.

the back is covered with the same DP - oneheart-onemind - for.'mal.itY

Well I had better get back to doing the rest of the pages!!
