rainy evening post

Hello, I had such encouraging messages from family and friends, many told me why they can't or won't post on my blog. So, I have decided to carry on plodding and blogging on!
We have welcome rain here tonight. A  nice steady light constant fall of welcome drink for the garden. so, Lets start. first scrappy stuff.
Below, Never a easy subject for me to scrap my late hubby. It was a challenge over on UKS. I had to use Kraft ( a brand of brown card) denim and white. I had a old pair of jeans so cut out the pocket  and waist band. I wanted to show how Kevin loved his jeans. The paint shows how after the jeans were getting worn he would use them for work.
Next is  daughter Karen at Harry Potter World. I used a sheet of Bo Bunny paper from a Halloween collection. The clock face and cogs and frame and owl are MDF brought from a company called Fernli  . I coloured the clock with pro-markers and rub ons. Same with the frame. I used feathers for clock hands.

below is a close up of some of the embellishments 

This is a rare  double page spread from me. The paper was sent to me from USA by a friend. the Mickey on the left is 3d. Its the Kiddos making memories!
Ok lets break up the scrappy stuff with some parchment, but there is one more scrappy page at the end. Below is a Judith Maslen pattern. nice easy one and will be great for a little lad!
Below is a Anne Rowntree pattern. and a close up too. She is 3d and I enjoyed making this one from a parchment craft magazine published back in Sept.2006, a golden oldie but a nice one.

so last of all.  made with a Kaisercraft shaped page. and for a UKS sketch challenge. I used ribbon, lace and card for the banner under the photo. Its my two granddaughters and their Mom.

                   close ups help you see the banner and the flowers I added on the page. Plus a ribbon and                           bead bow.

So, that's it folks. Brings you up to date. Me, I'm off to watch a John Wayne film and a naughty but nice homemade scone. Maybe naughtier still I'll add some clotted cream that happens to be in the fridge with a odd fresh raspberry or two!
So, spread the love folks, Flash a smile and a cheery hi! Brighten someones day. The world is a crazy place these needs all the love it can hold.. until next post...take care....
