I still have my card to make. What the heck I'm doing beats me. Might have to wander over to Lou's or Juliet's and see what they have been up to. Bound to find a great idea there.
Most of today has been taken up with shopping in town and the 'H' word *eek* wth just a bit of crafting with the girls. This evening it was writing out loads of price labels ready for the school Christmas Shop at school on Tuesday. (Not to self - I am NOT doing this next year.!!!!!!!!!!) Still have to stick them on all the things yet. Oh well at least my back is feeling a bit better, typically in time for my doctors appointment about it tomorrow. Oh well. I'll tell her what went on and see what she says. My money is on the family 'disease' - sciatica. I can't be the only one to not get it after all.
The papers for this LO really deserve a tropical beach, but this was DD1 on Ryde beach (the Isle of Wight) - not so tropical. It's again using a sketchfeatured on the Craft Diner forum.
Papers are from Crate Paper Crush collection, Sand and Island. Island is the pretty orangy one. I have really found a love for these papers recently. They are double sided and textured. So nice I now have quite a few in my stash collection. The stickes I used are from Creative Imaginations from the tropical set by Pamela Woods. Journalling stamp is out of a set from Lil Davis.
This is one of the LO's I created using the new craft forum Craft Diner. There is a thread there showing sketches. I've used pencil lines before for the challenges we did on 3C's forum and enjoyed working from them. So I decided that I'd have a go. With all the thinking done for you these kind of LOs take no time at all.
The background for this is a nice festive green Bazzill Bling C/S. Papers are Doodlebug and the die cuts are K & Co Peppermint Twist. (What you can't see on them is all the glitter. Hmmm! Oh well.) This ws DD2 a couple of years ago before we went to a party. She was only 6 then but looks much more grown up than that. Scary.

The CJ this time was entitled Life's A Beach and was about your most tranquil place. I chose the beauty in Yosemite for mine. The journalling is tucked away in a mini folded origami style album. (don't know the real name for the type of album lol) Papers are from BG and dress it up buttons and K & Co word stickers form the main embellishments.
DD2 went for the beach. This one is in St Pete's Beach, Florida at sunset.

Here is the cover (before I altered it) Look at the lanterns and you will see that they are defying gravity.

Here's the start of the tagging.
1)If you could have 100.00 pounds worth of scrapbook paper or assorted embellishments,which would you choose?
Embellishments (I think) I have so much in the paper line atm, althoughI have lots of embellishments too but I think I could do more with them right now.
2) If you had to choose between using only stamps or rubons which would you choose?
I have some stamps and a few pads and pens but I use more rub ons than stamps so I have ot stick with rub ons.
3) If you knew how to do both awesome cards and layouts ,but could only do one for a year which would you do?
Layouts, it's where I began and what I still feel I'm better at (most of the time lol)
4)would you rather own a scrapbooking store or have your own scrapping room at home (cant have both,lol,) ?
Hmm well from somebody who has to use the kitchen table to craft on, a room of my own would be fab but to have a store would be even more fab. All those supplies at myfinger tips and floor space when the customers had gone. Ha!
5) And the last but not least ,what is your current cardmaking or scrapping style?
No set style. Sometimes I used sketches and others I just go with the flow.
I'll find others to tag soon, honest.
