April post

Good evening all, I hope you all had a great Easter, lots of chocolate, sunshine, what's sunshine? There is very little sign of the yellow ball in the sky where I live! Sadly! I am still getting wet and cold walking the dog and its getting a bit annoying now!I had an amazing time over the bank hols with some family, beach walking,around the lakes ,topped off with an enjoyable meal out.Family time has to be one of the best things! I have some crafty bits to show you, mainly parchment craft but a little scrapping.  I have added a few close ups to make it easier for you to see what I have done. There are a few baby cards, but the class wanted to make those type of designs.
First, the butterfly card.Sadly I don't know who the designer is. I have had this pattern in a folder for ages. The butterfly is made 3D and painted with PITT artist pens direct onto the parchment.

Below are the start of baby cards. The yellow one is a design by Anne Quinn  and coloured once again   direct on to the parchment with Pitt pens, the blue one is a Judith Maslen design.

This below, is a design  from Parchment Craft Mag. the original was all white work but I wanted to add a little colour.

Below, teddy is a June Owen pattern. It will be a sample for a up coming lesson. Quite cute don't you think?

so now, scrapbooking. I am working my way through the last of the photos from my Christmas/New Year hols in Lanzarote. This was an amazing view from the 19th floor of a hotel. I slotted together four different photos to recapture the coast line. The two pages will go  side by side into the album.

Below, myself with my two daughters. Cocktails a plenty made for some fun photos! That hat was far to big for me! But I smile a lot, when I see these photos.

So that's it from me for this post. Remember folks we live in a world where you can be whatever you want to be... but be kind on the way up because you never know who you will meet on the way 
down!  take care out there and remember spread the love folks..spread the love!

  1. Oh I just love that butterfly, so pretty! I think the addition of colour on the stork baby card is lovely - just the right amount! How clever are you putting together that coastline page! I love it. Lovely memories of a great holiday by the look of it! As for the sunshine...Hmmm, well it's trying to come out down here, and I don't think we've had as much rain as some folk, but it's still not Spring-like really! It hasn't stopped people from flocking to Cornwall this Easter though, it's been very busy down here, which is nice to see! Keep up the good work Lynn xx
