A Scrap layout, A Suzi Blu & a Mothers Day Card

A bit of everything this evening - Steve's out with some friends so not expecting him home sober so hopefully he won't realise that his family sized Toblerone has shrunk to snack size ;O)!!! It's been sat in the fridge for weeks - how can you leave chocolate for that long!!!!

So with Soft Cell - Where did your love go on repeat and on full blast heres what I've been doing this evening!

When I visited my Dad last week he let me go through all his photo albums and pick whatever photo I wanted - he said it was a shame to keep them in books and no-one sees them. Well although I wasn't greedy I certainly came away with a few, Got some of my mom who passed away 16 years ago - I look like her at her age, some of me when I was a teenager with a purple wedge!!! and some of Viki as a little baby. So I've put cards on the back burner and started scrapping.

This is a photo of my nanna when she was about 5 years old. The papers are from the Pink Paisley range which I got from the States last year.

Here is my Suzi Blu Le Petite Doll cut and stuck on a piece of plywood. The background is not what she asked for but hey :O) I like it! Got a few more on the go so hopefully they will get better.

And here is a Mothers Day card for a friend at work - decided to use my Tilda stamps that arrived yesterday from the Hoppy Easter range. The delicious paper is K&Company from Running with Scissors. All the images where coloured with Rangers Distress Inks.

Well just about finished my Lets Get Shabby project - Steve's just walked in so best get him a cuppa. Have a good weekend and TFL XXX

By the way - huge congratulations to Kate aka downrightcrafty who has just become a member of a DT - - well done lovie xx
