A couple LO's!

Here are a couple more LO's I have done...the first is a uk challange to use a water theme, use purple, use ribbon, and use metal, and also use 29 or 2+9 of something..which I have done all of the above. The photo was taken last year in Dorset near Anvil Point we were walking this is a view I came upon and it was just breathtaking! So of course I had to snap the pic!

The second lo is for the Elsie Flannigan scrapbook was to write on a photo, so I decided to do the whole lo with handwriting and doodling instead of using embellishments.

Its 6 Years!

Well today my best friend and soulmate and I celebrated our 6th wedding anniversary! As we opened each others cards this morning we realized we had both written the same thing in each others, just goes to show how much alike we feel and think. He is the best husband a woman could ever hope for, and he is my very best friend, lover, soul mate and my husband..I am so lucky to have him in my life. I still wake every morning to kisses on my shoulder, and end my day with a kiss upon my lips. We would have gone out to dinner tonight to celebrate but I had to work so we are going tomorrow night instead. He bought US a 3 set of CD's of Love songs of the 80's....after I opened it he said to the first few song titles...and as I did he said when he picked up the cd and read the first few songs he thought...this will prove to her how much I love he bought the you just said awwwwwwwe huh? yeah I did too and I do know how much he loves me but sometimes I ask myself "Why does he love me so much??" I adore my husband, I love him more then words could ever express, he has made me realize I am worthy of being loved. this anniversary passes...I look forward to the next...and tomorrow evening..we will wine and dine and celebrate our love for one another.
Love and light to all who read this.

Here I am again with a couple more lo's I have done..both for challanges with for the weekly challange and the other for the Elsie flannagin challange...the weekly challange was use 2 photos, I used a song title from Grease as instructed (You're the one that I want) and add a bit of shiney to it, and a bit of white..all which I included! The Elsie challange was use 4 photos (telling the story--so to speak) so I have done this with 4 photo's of my cats playing hide n seek which they seem to do alot of these days....not so sure I am happy with the title paper but its there anyway..perhaps I will change it at some time in the future..or grow to like it!

Royal Albert Dock Promenade

My latest LO, Elsie flannigan challange on UKS, to take an artistic photograph, here is my photo, I love this photo. The journaling reads..."I snapped this walking in London across from City Airport. I found all the contrasting elements, metal, brick, steel, & glass along with the shadows just made for such an eyecatching scene. To look at the world around us in a bit of a different way opens up a whole beautiful world of art."

Just thought I would share this photo of my buttons that I took for the Overlooked challange on UKS.

Hello everyone! I had a bit of a crafty day before work yesterday and did a layout of my son's girlfriend, I did it for the Elsie Flannigan 52 scrapbooking challages over on UKS, #5 which was to embellish a floral accent so I have taken 2 metal flowers and added red cardstock behind them they added black glitter to them, and a black glittery brad to the middle. Her favourite colours are black and red so I tried to do the monochromatic with a dash of red added in.

Here's a few more LO's I have done in the past week.

First is of my parents before they were married, I have printed off the frame the photo was in also to use as a backing for the photo because my father had written on it "To my sweetheart Pat, from Johnny. I thought it only fitting to keep the photo with the message.

Next one is of my Sister in her sand dragster,she is the dare devil of us girls, Her car is called "Good News" and her husbands dragster is called "Bad News" They go all over the usa racing.

The next couple lo's I did as challanges on UKS, first was the House challange and our prompt was to us Love and Ribbons, so hence the lo,I will be mounting this on canvas and giving it to my husband as an anniversary present....these photo's were taken while we were in London a couple weeks ago.

The next one is a lo of my mates daughter and step daughter the day of my mates wedding, the girls were in the wedding so this was them using up some energy before having to get their gowns on. The challange prompt was to use a Beatles song as a title, 7 of something, no flowers, use paint, and use spring colours. Thank you for looking!

I've Been Tagged!

Thanks to Sarah C I have been tagged.

Here are the rules:- You must post the rules before you give your answers.You must list one fact about yourself for each letter of your middle name. Each fact must begin with that letter. If you don't have a middle name, just use your maiden name. After you've been tagged, you need to up-date your blog with your middle name and answers. At the end of your post, you need to tag one person for each letter of your middle name. Be sure to leave them a comment telling them they've been tagged and need to read your blog for details.

Altering things I like to do
Nuts are something I love munch on
Nice--my husband said that is one word to describe me :)

Ok...there we are...sure glad my middle name is short lol. Now who to tag...most of those on my list have been tagged already many times but perhaps they won't mind if I tag them again?? Since I have only 1 N on my list and she has been tagged I will tag 3 people with only one being a letter from my name.
