summer holidays at last

Over the last week whilst dabbling at making teachers pressies I also hit upon the idea of could i make envelopes into something similar to a paper bag album (me who has never done scrapbooking or paper bag albums come to that though i did partipate in a CJ once) well this is the result though its not for a teacher but for my mum who last year discovered my nana had a few old photos we didn't know existed and borrowed them and took copies
I decided this might qualify me to enter the challenge over at where the challenge is all change so here goes

Silly Saturday

Well a friend is getting married but to keep costs down wants to make her own invites however is picking my brains She has never made a card before let alone 50 invites so i am trying to keep ideas simple The stipulation is blue and gold - difficult in itself cos thats a warm and a cold colour so should it be on a white or a cream card Anyhow i have played around with these colours but used my own image as they want to put their photograph on but thats not ready yet so heres my interpretation for them to play around with

What a Week

Well what a week that was DS2 had to go into hospital initially for an operation on a broken wrist that isn't healing but due to his ingrowing toe nails being infected they wouldn't do it i did however persuade them to operate on his toes as this has been an ongoing saga for two years now He is home the pain is better and tomorrow we have to go back to the hospital to have them looked at and redressed I finally got around to doing a spot of card making today a blue willow card for my other sister whose birthday is next month and a beach scene for a challenge over at Auntys Forum (my second home according to family ' giggle' ) It had to involve paint so i used perfect pearls for shimmery sand and dress
