I'm so excited got my tickets for the military tattoo this is our 3 rd year of going and I love it. The highlight for me from the last one was theme of 'Gael' from the Hollywood movie 'Last of the Mohicans'. It was amazing.
I'm so loving triple embossing -very addictive - i made this embellisment from a square of chipboard. Ibuilt up 3 layers of black UTE and stamped into the last layer with a love word stamp. I brushed in bronze pearl piments then rubbed excess from surface with a baby wipe to let the black show up leaving the bronze in the imprint of the stamp. So easy and quick to do !!
Yesterday I finished filling in an insurance claim form for a ring that I lost back in July 08. I thought it had perhaps been stolen from the house. We were clearing out the utility room to get it ready for tiling and Mondo said "Now I have a dilema do I wait til your birthday or do I give it to you now?" and produced the lost ring. I'm not a jewellery person but I really missed this ring. I will be more careful in future.
Finished this layout today - it was the challenge on UKS Shimelle's Scrap Like You Mean it. I used triple UTE embossing - and sprinkled glitter and stamped into the last layer. I also used alochol inks and blonde moments pearl piments oh and not forgetting stickles!!
This is my first attempt as setting up a blog - don't know why I'll never have time to update it !!!
This will probably be a blog about my life so that my sisters in Oz can keep up- to- date and my scrapbooking.
Today Catherine and I went shopping at East Kilbride shopping centre and I thought it was Christmas all over again. It was packed. It so was uncomfortable - not enjoyable at all. Catherine had a voucher for £20 for her birthday and pocket money. She bought quite a few items in Debenhams. I bought FLAT yes I said FLAT shoes - nine west (my favourite as they are made for big American feet and I have big wide feet). They were reduced for £49 to £19. I also bought nice Nine West grey boots reduced from £139 to £49 bargain or what!!!
Catherine bought an outfit for the school disco - not on til February but you how excited Catherine gets about these events. I'll post a photo of her.
