Sugar Creek Hollow......

Afternoon peeps hope you have all got your advent calendars ready to start opening on Sunday, I can't make my mind up whether to put the Christmas tree up o Sunday or wait till the following week, I'm a little worried this year as Zachary is in to everything and I've got a feeling that the tree is going to come under attack this Christmas, he is such a sweet little terror but I spend most of my time following him around saying NOooooooo.
Today sees the start of a new challenge at Sugar Creek Hollow, this fortnight the theme is ....Vintage Christmas.
I have used an image from Ooh La La Creations and the papers are from First Edition, I did say I wasn't going to buy anymore Christmas paper pads but I fell in love with this one, so it fell in my basket when I was at the NECAdded Frantage to the edges of the image.

Sketch n Stash......

Morning peeps, wow finally managing to get  a posting for a challenge on the right day after two weeks of going AWOL, I'm really struggling with my new laptop, not used to windows 8 which my son has managed to over ride for me and set the computer up so that it nearly resembles my old one, but I'm still struggling with some things though. I've had a very busy brill. weekend at a scrapping retreat at Ansty, made several layouts and mini albums working from 9:30 am until 11:00 pm at night......great fun but tiring, anyway onto this fortnights challenge at Sketch n Stash, we have a great sketch for you to follow and we are being sponsored by Lili of the Valley.

Sugar Creek Hollow......

Afternoon peeps, gosh what a fortnight, computer broke and I lost alot of files and then I have had my two Grand children staying with us, to say I am tired is an under statement, but Mum and Dad are back home and hopefully I can resume my normal life again, I've missed blogging so it will take awhile to catch up with you all. This weekend I am away crafting at a retreat, doing albums and scrap Layouts, the only problem being is I have not been able to take photos with me as I have not had the time to try and retrieve any files whilst I have had the little ones........didn't realize what hard work it was, how did I do it when I had my own children?, I'm just breathing a sigh of relief that I can get back into the swing of things before the big Christmas rush at work starts.

Today sees the start of a new challenge at Sugar Creek Hollow and the theme is tags or boxes, this is a tag I made awhile back (thank goodness, or I would nothing to show you),
We also have a guest designer joining us ......Bonnie pop over to her blog

I have used an image and paper from the Vintage Christmas CD. I have layered up the main part of the image which conceals the sentiment underneath.

have a great week

Sugar Creek Hollow.........

Morning peeps another card that should have been posted last week, better late than never as they say. I went to the NEC on Thursday with one of my members of staff, hubby and Zachary, must admit that not having much sleep the night before and then a day of walking around I was pooped to say the least, was soooo busy there and at times it felt like a rugby scrum. Zachary decided he wanted to walk around and took delight in examining the contacts of ladies shopping bags......checking out their stash purchases.

The theme at Sugar Creek Hollow is anything goes, there is still another week to join in, but don't forget we want to see your vintage style.I have used a stamp from Crafty Individuals coloured in with ....yes you guessed it Prismas.

Just need to try and catch up now, 
off for a few days to catch up housework and sleep

Ready Teddy Go.....

Evening peeps......I am soooooo tired, had such a busy week so far what with work and having two Grand kids round for 12 days and nights, last week we went to Twin Lakes at Melton Mowbray which we had never been to before, really great place for smaller children who are not into white knuckle rides and Nanas who can go on with the kids. It was themed for Halloween and we got to carve pumpkins in the barn where they have lots of animals including the cheekiest and cutest Llama I've ever seen......want one

Todays card is for the new challenge that has started at Ready Teddy Go and the theme this month is embossing, dry/wet. For a change I got out an embossing folder, love this strip as it can be used for vintage/wedding as well, very versatile. The image is a Fizzy Moon one coloured in with Prismas and the papers are from Dovecraft....lots of lovely cupcake/cooking papers.

......bit of a delay in  posting this as my computer went to cyber heaven last Friday, I lost the hard drive with all my files on it so you can imagine I was gutted, managed to get some back but I'm still missing a few, moral of this story is to back everything up on a portable hard drive. Oh well just get used to this computer now.
