Picture heavy post...

Hi Lovelies, hope your all enjoying a easy oasey Sunday morning, well I am, not like I can go for a run is it..!!!..ha ha
I am here with an album I made last month and not shown yet, I also have another one but I'll spare you that for now...
The papers on the out side of book are some left over from some polish papers I had..I think...sorry my head is in space lately..the lovely wycinka embellishment was bought from LLC who no longer trades..
I bought the ring with lots of other bits and bobs at Hobby lobby
The back is pretty simple really.

The inside papers are all from a 6x6 Craft&You book called Beautiful Day and its gorgeous, had it for ages and couldn't bring myself to use, which is just daft when you think about it...

Each page is also a pocket to use a store for keepsakes etc.

I made my usual pocket for tags etc on the back of the book, I like to put lots of bits and bobs that can be used in the book when entering photo's or journaling.....haven't shown anyone yet as they always go walk-about..well not this time mate, this ones for me...ha ha..
I am entering the following..
See you all soon,

A new 'MO' image

Tried to stop myself, but alas I couldn't, I saw this brand new image on FB first as a rough sketch, we all wanted it as a digi and so here she cute and you can go grab her up right HERE
I hope I did her justice, I really tried, she is coloured with Flexmarkers 

Maybe try find a challenge or two for sweet Esmeralda...
See you all tomorrow I hope at the start of CraftyCatz new challenge...
To all who have been kind enough to ask how I'm doing, well, it's on going, but we are getting the pain under control, which is something, got to be positive so that's about it...Hugs to

Tea anyone...

Good morning, I have a little card to show off this morning, I just loved the cute image which I won a while back on DiSDIGISTAMPS
It's called Strawberry Tea and can be found HERE
Coloured with both Flex markers and FaberCastell pencils
Paper from Beautiful Day pad .
Computer generated sentiment.
Cute or what..
That's all from me, off to see if any challenges fit the bill..

Have a lovely day, it's so beautiful outside, I may just crawl to the back porch and grab a few rays...
Enjoy your day and don't forget that FRIDAY is CraftyCatz brand new challenge day, hope you will come join us and add your name to the GDT call list...BFN...xxxx

At last I have something to show....

Well Hi all, all the time CraftyCatz have been on a break I have been suffering with my back, well it's on going and now I have physio coming to help me out, I am so fed up, I just want to get some sort of normal, pain free life going, but lets hope , I was told it can slip further and then hospital here I come....please God no.....

Anyway, I made this a while ago and thought I'd dig it out and see what you all think...its a wall hanging, made on mount board..
The stamped images and sentiment are all from TH set, as you can see the sentiment is stamped on torn vellum...yes I am still doing that.... metal disc Quote Tokens TH which says, 'live for the moments you cannot put into words'....  mount board is paper mill, dp is stash, TH paper clip and waxed cotton from LLC when still trading....everything is embossed in white , I just like the way it pops, the butterfly at the bottom I stamped and then stamped on vellum and fussy cut  to add a little touch of flight...
I will try and add a challenge or two just to get back into things....
Thats enough from me for one day I'm sure, I need to go lie down, the pain is just awful, hope your all ok and feeling well, much love to all...see you soon as we are getting ready to launch a new challenge on 7th September, which is on the doorstep...see you all there I hope...big hugs..xxxxx
