Patterned Paper

Challenge 1: Make Your Own Patterned Paper From Cardstock

It took a long time to measure up the strips before cutting! My only regret on completion is that I wish I had used less white in my design.

My Card Creations

Recently I made some cards for a friend who was retiring and I was told that I should sell my work. I have always felt that if I started selling the I may loose the enjoyment if I have to have deadlines.

So I thought I would post my work and see if I get any feedback.

Also while in England recently I visited a medium who told me my mum says I should go into business with my creativeness!!

Camping at Brightlingsea

Way back in 1966 I was around 10ish and my dad decided to take our family on our first camping trip. A friend of his loaned us a tent which looked more like a marquee, and after setting it up in the back yard to make sure he knew what went where, we discovered that 6 of us fit into it with lots of room.

We set off for Brightlingsea, a seaside resort about half an hour from our home. The tent was pitched and we started our holiday. There was freedom back then for children to explore without the fear of abuction. My siblings and I did a lot of exploring. That night after Mum made us dinner on a propane powered stove top, we settled down for a good night's sleep. What a night! No one could get comfortable. Sleeping on the ground with no mattress was new to all us kids. There were countless complaints!

Next morning Dad drove home and sort out all kinds of cushions from our house. Couch cushions, pillows, even the actual foam seating from our couch! So that night we all slept a lot better!

Here is a layout that I just completed today. Here you can see the opening of the tent with my older brother and my 2 younger sisters. I think the youngest would have been about 3 or 4.

David went for a boat ride, and I love the picture of me and my sisters waving him off!

Some new work

This is a layout of my son playing in a park in my hometown in England. This was an easy and fun layout to do.
