growing on me

Enjoyed this lo even tho it took me ages to find a pic and colours to match lol the white space is growing on me so may try something else similar to this

No title

Done for the stepping stones class on uks i really liked this photo of me and thought it would look good on this lo handcut the flowers for the border at the bottom and chose matching shades to finish off the look just couldnt come up with a title so will add one later when i think of one

another lo

This was done for the head in the clouds class on uks couldnt find a pic appropiate for that so changed it to head in the sand and think it works quite well couldnt decide on what colours to use but the blue and green work ok

Pleaed with this one

Another lo done for the uks cc am really peased with how this looks used what i had in my stash and picked colours that would work together took me a while to complete this but well worth the effort

Scrapping day

This was done for the uks summer cc i quite liked the colours for this one and went well with the photos altho i made a mistake and put 2008for the date instead of 07 so need to fix that up at some point have had a great day scrapping today


This is for the weekly challenge on uks to use purple doodling a first and 5 scraps
this wasnt my original plan for this so its a pretty basic lo as i wanted to get on with the summer cyber crop classes on uks a first tattoo purple pp 5 scrap squares and swirls not a very apt design for a first tattoo but my cousin gave me 20 quid if i would have one done with her and go first and this was the only cute design i liked from the price range it didnt hurt and i would like another one

Mother and son

This is the love is class from the uks summer cyber crop really enjoyed this did this on friday night and says Mother and son a mothers love is unconditional its for an album for my sister that i am doing
