Today is the start of a busy week, MIL down on wednesday so the house needs a bit of a sort out, days out on Thurs and Friday then taking her back on Saturday and back home on Sunday. Feeling exhausted already just writing it all down.
Not sure how much crafty I can fit in but next week theres the Summer Cyber Crop on UKS starting on Wednesday 8th. Have brought four kits cos it much easier to have a couple to hand seeing as it takes ages to match papers to photos.
Waves to DS Happy Birthday.

I'm making a minibook with Disney photos from April didn't quite finish it too much chattering.
Last night went to see Transformers, it was great film and not just a boy flick it was funny and with some great graphics DD recommended, obviously she saw it weeks ago and Boy was she right.

As I had technical problems yesterday and completed nothing I thought you might like a closer look at Francoise class from last Sunday. Yes they are peel offs and I do think they get bad press but if used properly they can be a useful addition. These peel offs were stuck onto double sided adhesive sheet, trimmed. Then careful sprinkle different colours of glitter one at time. Then just peel of the backing, layer and matt.
My technical problems were due to the printer, I brought some c**p photo paper and decided to reprint them. Obviously the printer was out of ink and the new one left stripes. So I cleaned them, again, again, again and again, finally it was OK but I had used loads of ink to clean them and no spare.
Then not sure if its just me but I had two photos of Jake with red eye no problem or so I thought. Would it save the new pics, no so had to find some other software I hadn't used before, it just takes more time. Finally managed to print the photos except the last two of Jake that had red eye the printer run out of ink!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Meanwhile I have finished the cuddly bears XS but it was a real b****r to centre the words I must have done the names three times in all and there shouldn't have been a prob and I don't think its right now but I refuse to do it again. Now it has to be made into a cushion and because now an owner of sewing machine its down to me. Could've of popped into the fabric shop next door on Sunday cos they were open even though I wasn't sure what colours but by the time we came out they were shut but I have to do it soon as you can see by the date it needs to completed.

A really busy weekend starting with the Mod Scraps Crop on Saturday, we were really lucky to be able to go to this after the terrible downpour on Friday, Gloucestershire and Worcestershire worse hit. This is the LO I managed to do, its a scraplift on the new HappyScrappin Forum . One very expensive LO, the papers I was going to use I felt didn't work so ended up buying Roxie from Ellies shop in the hall, guess what I have at home untouched a Roxie kit.
Sunday we went to the Art of Craft they had a demo weekend to celebrate twentytwo years in the craft business. We was only going to go for a couple of hours but ended up being there for five hours.
First we met the Lovely Francoise Read a very unassuming and talented lady. I love her stamps and her classes, she can take a plain bits of card, some stamps and ink, and make a fabulous card. After many years we class her as a good friend, maybe not after telling us that she has another twenty sets of new stamps coming out at the end of August including the wonderful oriental stamps being advertise in the craft mags. Then we met the wonderful Jenny of HobbyArt she had this lovely folder with her examples in and had a lovely polka dot dress stamp, had to have that and I couldn't leave without a flower stamp. Then Karen asked if we wanted to do a workshop with Jenny it was only a £5 so we said yes and Jenny was using the head of oriental lady stamp well that fell in the basket too, then Nannette asked about Francoise workshop so we did that too, now I know people moan about peel off but the ice cream sundaes with glitter they are easy and fab to do. Spent some time with Karen at the make and takes, arranging a day out scrapping then finished off looking at everything else. Was really impress with the cuttlebug especially the embossing but really can't justified the cost after buying the Cricut. So I leave you with pics of my booty.

I forgot to tell how was Newbury Artstamps was on Sunday. Quiet, good for me but maybe not for stalls. Not much Scrapbooking although spent quite a bit on Banana Frog. Brought stamps, pens, inkpads, brought quite a bit on Craftwork cards that was Julie Hickey fault because she was demo. Popped up to see Craft and Co but its difficult to buy when I go there nearly every week.
Here's a LO I did which is suppose to be a double but run out of a certain colour of bazzill. Tongue in cheek about Kim and Aggie.
Also a close up on the dinky flowers they are about the size of 5p piece.

At last a pic of something crafty, my LO of Jake wearing the hat I brought him in Orlando. Sis wants to be called Grandma so when we saw this in Cypress Gdns I think we had to buy it for him. Do you love the flowers they're the ones I mention in other posts. You will find them here under scrapbooking, I may have to get some more.
I leave the weekly for tomorrow but I don't think it worked that well.

I haven't anything crafty to show you but that doesn't mean I haven't done anything, I finished my BOB LO but I don't like it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Today I have done the weekly challenge on UKS and nearly finished a LO using Enfys crochet flowers so there might be two photos tomorrow.
I have got Photoshop Elements and have managed to lose the big, no enormous spot on my Sis face quite impressed. I have a book at least three inches thick on tips!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Well its going dark again, we've had a thunderstorm that lasted four hours and it looks like its come round again to have another go at us.
