Halloween Anniversary

Well Here I am after what seems along time away from my blog!

Friends have got me onto facebook, so I spend many a night now chatting with friends, but also my photo printer has packed up, so as at the moment I can't print any photo's off to use for scrapbooking. I can only download them onto laptop.
Good news though and I have ordered a new all in one photo printer that I can use for my camera and for the laptop...yippeee hopefully it will be here by next week.
This card is one that my friend asked me to make for her parents Anniversary, but it is slightly different then your usual ones as there anniversary was on halloween so she wanted it with a halloween theme. There is nothing more that I like when making cards is a good challenge.

Here it is and yes they were very pleased with the card, in fact they loved it!

Bye Bye Carly!

This is a Lo that I have started and finished today. I only decided to do this on Monday, frame it and give it to Carly on Thursday night, when we Pet shop Girls go out for a meal.

The hardest part was getting photo's of every one. This I finally managed and received the last photo only half an hour ago. The actual photo of Carly (in the middle) was kindly got with out her knowing and it was a passport photo, which I had to then take a photo of and enlarge.

We are a good bunch at the pet shop, and sadly Carly left 2 weeks ago, I made her a lovely leaving card and we all got her a present.

Tomorrow night we all go out for a meal in our local Indian so I decided to do a LO of all of us so she can remember us, and I framed it as a surprise gift. Hope she likes it.

Sleeping Kitty!

This is a lo of our cat Tessie that I have recently done.

We got Tessie from our local rspca centre at Claverton Down at Bath about 9 years ago.

We saw this tiny cute little Kitten that we wanted, so they put her ina box ready while we filled in some forms. When we got home we opened the box and there was Tessie and not the cat we had originally choose, but she was so sweet we couldn't of sent her back.
Here she is 9 years later while having a snooze!! I was lucky enough to even get her to wake up for a quick minute for a photo.

Chilling at nanny Jane's!

This is a Lo I have done of my son Nathan. The photo's was taken when we stayed at Jane's in the summer.

Nathan decided to use the folded up mattress as a pillow and just chill out while playing his Nintendo ds, his favourite thing is to play on it at any time of day for hours and hours!

Arty Girlz Challenge - Autumn

This is my Lo for this weeks challenge which is Autumn.

The Photo is of our dog Fimble, when I took her for a walk earlier in the week. I sometimes take her down to Corsham Park, where there is open fields and a large lake. In the summer months sometimes they have people sailing on the lake, and it is very pretty mid autumn when all the trees are going red and the leaves are crispy.

It is also very pretty when it is frosty or when it has snowed.

For the background paper I used some leaf paper that I have from a nature kit and I punched out lots of leaves from 5 different shades of green.
