Back again - sorry Alana!!

Sorry I have been AWOL again.  Life as usual getting in the way.  My Dad isnt keeping very well at the moment and we are waiting for some test results to see what is going on.

I had joined a newbie CJ on UKS just before my Dad had a funny turn and of course I had to do a 300 mile round trip to try and bring a car back from Newcastle.

All this meant I got a bit behind with organising my CJ and I am grateful to Rebekah the host and my fellow CJers for their patience as I was a bit late with the posting of the Newbie one.  It went in the post finally the other day so I hope Jellibean (Cal) gets it soon.

I chose the theme of Hollywood Icons for my CJ and for my own entry chose to base this on Audrey Hepburn as both my daughter and I admire her for her style, elegance and poise.  My entry turned out to be much more simple than I would normally do but I am pleased with it.  I only hope everyone else doesnt think its too minimal.  I am really looking forward to seeing how others interpret my theme and to working on their CJs.

I am off to my local crop on Saturday and hope to get my entry for Crafty72 (Lynn) CJ done.  I have an idea of what I am going to do so hopefully it will turn out okay.


  1. Honestly you don't have to publicly announce your apologies to me! I forgive you for not blogging.....sort of.....remember the 3 week cut off date though!

  2. Ooooh! I like it. Can't wait to get stuck into this one, though I think it's later down the line for me. Don't worry about posting late, sometimes life just goes haywire, happens to everyone. Hope your dad's doing ok now. :) xx

  3. Hope your dad is doing ok now & I'm sure your fellow CJ'rs will all understand as everyones life goes a bit wonky a some stage :)

  4. A great theme for a CJ - I also echo the other Bloggers thoughts about the other CJ ers understanding your situation. I think if they know what is going on they are happy to wait a while. Hope your Dad is soon on the mend

  5. Love your work. Hope your dad is ok.

  6. These look lovely :D
    Best wishes to your Dad,
    J xx
