Grimm.ATC Book Swap

After receiving my gorgeous Alice themed ATC book from Rebecca I just knew I had to join the Grimm one.  i chose The Queen Bee as my theme and after my bee stamp buzzing off and re appearing several times I finally got them done.  I printed out some.of the words from the story and inked over them with distress inks. I stamped the body of the Bee from card, coloured in and Aedes some glossy accents. I then stamped the wings and.legs in vellum and hear embossed. I topped the Bee off with a crown and then finished it.off with a little flower made from Organza and.net layers

Cant wait to get my little book back and on display in my craft room

Scrap-a-sketch - June

My goodness me has it really been six or seven weeks since I updated my blog;. Im quite shocked. For some reason most of May and early June just disappeared in a blur. I am really needing to get up to date with My Photo Fifty album as I havent done May and June yet. I hardly took any photos in May so I dont know how I am going to pad that month out - any ideas welcomed. June will not be a problem as that was the month of the dreaded 50th birthday which remarkably was a real pleasure. Pics etc will follow from that one I think. Im off to stay at Heather's next weekend so I will be cropping with the frozen northerners and intend to catch up on things so hopefully will have more crafty stuff to blog Anyways Scrap-a-sketch came round quickly as per but for once I had my layout done for the monthly reveal. It was Dee's turn to pick the sketch this month and this is what she chose. I loved it and my layout came easily for me Its a photo of Fiona, my daughter with her friend Jade all dolled up for a night out. The papers came from the February Quirky kit - I have more or less used them all up now and I was pleased with the way it turned out although the black and the red hand stitching did take a while
