Simply Create DT submission

Today I thought I'd share a layout I entered for the Simply Create DT call. The photo is of our favourite beach in Cape Cod - it was literally deserted and so peaceful.

Papers are quite old Kaisercraft ones; the beach grass/words are stamped using stamps from the Tattered Angels Coastal set. I've added my journaling on a little tag behind the photo. Quite a simple LO but that's how I like 'em!

Thanks for popping in,

Gingersnaps challenge: Punches

Today's challenge over on Gingersnap Creations is punches. Although I don't have squillions of punches, I do use the ones I have a lot. Here I've used a circle punch and a border punch (Martha Stewart Doily Lace). I love to layer my punched borders like this and it's a technique I use lots.

I went for a bit of a vintage look, using soft colours for this simple card.

We hope you'll join in with this week's challenge - have fun!

Me & my Dog

This is a layout I started an age ago. I was a class from the last UKS cybercrop (can't for the life of me remember which one) and I just didn't know how to finish it. Am still not totally happy with this but at least it is done now.

Love these papers - they are MME. The pics were taken at Brockhampton by my other half - some quite nice pics of me for once!

Thanks for popping over.

My first ever blog award!

My lovely friend Isabelle has passed this award onto me - thank you sweetie :). The rules apparently are that I tell you seven random facts about myself and pass the award onto seven other people; so here goes...

1) I am terrified of wasps and clowns.

2) I collect Nightmare Before Christmas snowglobes.

3) My favourite films ever are Rebecca and The Frighteners.

4) My favourite place in the world is Walt Disney World (is there anyone who doesn't know that about me???)

5) I have a masters degree in History of Ceramic Design. Interesting but pretty pointless!

6) I'm fascinated by forensic science and forensic psychology.

7) As a small child my career aspirations included being a ice cream lady and an astronaut - talk about from the sublime to the ridiculous!

And I'd like to pass this award to:

If I can get myself organised I have a couple of layouts to upload soon. Bye for now!
