Thank you for taking the time to visit my little page.
Firstly, to clear up a couple of questions from Tuesday's post. For the background of my card, I used CE (Sue Wilson's) Celtic Flower embossing folder on PMD cream card and then gently rubbed Vintage Photo Distress Ink over the top. Hope that makes sense. It's strange how things appear differently in photos/on screen, no metallic items used at all.
Today's post is...
Don't laugh, but yes, that's me!
On a Thursday, every other week, I meet up with a group of ladies to craft. Between us, we knit,crochet, quilt,patchwork, decorate cakes etc. But most importantly we laugh, natter and put the world to rights. Every once in a while we set a challenge and this time "school days" was pulled out of the hat. Tonight is the night we "show and tell".
Everything I have added to my scrapbook page means something. So the picture is the main event. The pencils because I loved to colour in back then. The elastic bands because I insisted on having my very fine baby hair in a ponytail for the occasion and back then we didn't have these "posh" bands that are around now. The gold star because I was so proud to earn one at five years old. The stencil is a nod to my dad who at the time was a draughtsman and used them along with Letraset - remember that. The red scribble is about my dearly departed sister, who decided she would colour in my eyes - had we just had an argument or was she trying to make me look pretty? I don't remember.
I will try and take photos and post them on Saturday of the other ladies makes
