OMG How will I find anything

Below is a picture of my living room and the extension is still not empty...still my scrapbooking stuff to move. I dont know how I am going to find anything. I have signed up for the Learn something new everyday class, by Shimelle Laine, this requires me to do a LO a day.....nothing like a challenge...hehehe!

New Craft Room

I am finally getting my craft room. Dh went out at the weekend and bought the units to that will help turn our extension/sun room into my new craft room. So now my whole house is in turmoil as I had to remove everything from the room to enable us to start working on it. I also went tonight and bought the paint I need to freshen it up, before the units go in:).

OH I am all excited hehehe!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My Surf Dude

This is a LO I did for the weekly challenge over on UK Scrappers, I love this picture of my son...he looks so happy and its easy to see that he loves being in the sea; luckily for me he only body boards, I dread the thought of him taking up proper surfing.

Handbag Mini book

This is what I have been working on for the past few nights, it does not take that long to make...I just have problems accessing my craft supplies at the moment. I needed something gorgeous to put my daughters birthday pics in:) so this is it. It is my take on a mini book designed by Jan Tink on her Stamps, paper, scissors blog. Check her out she is amazing. Hard to believe this is made from 2 envelopes and some card.

This is the bag open

These are the pocket inserts

Happy Birthday Baby

Well I cant believe it, but my little girl is all grown up. My daughter Kate was 16 today and I am so proud of the lovely young women she has turned into. Of course all milestone birthdays need lots of pics taken...and thats what I did, this is one of her with her proud does he look:)

Birthday Card

This is the little card I made for my friend on UK scrappers, she stays so far away from us in the States, it would be lovely to meet and spend time with her, but that is not possible at the moment. So this little card says
I cannot sit and talk with you
the way I'd like to do
So brew yourself a cup of TEA
I'll think of YOU
You think of ME

Each of the little pockets inside hold a tea bag in a little packet, I loved making this one:)

Thank goodness for brothers

Over on Uks at the moment they are running an inspirational thread called " A mini book a day " and the other day there was one which involved using beermats, well fond as I am of the occassional tipple, I do not frequent off I trotted to my local British Legion Club...only to find the recession has hit and they no longer open during the day:(. Now just by luck I met my brother, who does like to go to the off he popped to his local and came back with the beermats I need and an additional 100+, his friend had given him a whole I really have no excuse for not making I am off to grab a bite to eat and I am going to get started.

Getting the urge

I have been quiet on the scrapbooking and cardmaking front lately, I have taken plenty of pictures, but I have not felt the urge to scrap any. I did make a card for a friend recently and once I know she has it I will post a pic, but that has been the extent of my paper crafting. However I have been browsing through UK scrappers and some blogs and I am really feeling the urge to get scrapping again:) so hopefully before the week is out I will find the time to sit down and attempt to be creative:).

So watch this space :lol:
