Birthday Card Book

finished cover finished inside

I thought you might like a look at the Birthday Card Book I made for my class at the CCW retreat last weekend. It was nice to dust off my Bind-it-all and put it to good use again. Thank you, Marilyn, for your much needed help with the class :o)

Sketch Challenge Nov 1 – Nov 30

Time for a new sketch challenge – I’ve moved the dates back to the first of the month I’m not sure how they got so out of sync. Here is the new sketch and my page … with thanks to Christine for help with the title :o).

Your challenge is to use my sketch as a starting point for a scrapbook page. Please link me up to your blog or gallery via the linky thingy below and be sure to mention my challenge in your blog post or gallery text box. Please only enter new projects. I’ll choose my favourite and send the winner one of my crop kits you can see them at the page tab at the top of my blog.


From last month’s links I just loved this layout by Gemma with that fab paint drip paper coincidentally the same paper I’ve used for my layout this month :o). I also want to give a special mention to Christine’s page - how cute is that photo?


Gemma – please have a look at the kits on the page tab above and choose one for your prize then email me your address on sue at suehr dot fsnet dot co dot uk.

First of all, my favourite linky from last month was this gorgeous card by Toni, I love it’s old fashioned appeal and Toni’s colouring is fab-u-lous!

Here are my last five cards for this year – please link up yours, even if you haven’t joined in so far. :o)

Time for blogging at last!

I’m so sorry, dear Blog, to have neglected you for so long. A nasty bout of shingles, the CCW retreat and mum being poorly have meant I have done little scrapping and no quilting. :o( Anyway, I am back in Blogland and have a couple of pages to share which are both UKS challenges and both were done at the retreat last weekend.

today you are youThe first is the House Challenge set by Alison who it so happens I was sitting next to at the retreat. Alison gave us a selection of Dr Seuss quotations to choose from – I just love this one.

And the second is for the Weekly Challenge set by AllyJ50 who asked us to use

ink or pink/blue
five lines of journalling handwritten/typed on the layout or as labels/tags/note cards
three plus photographs in a cluster/collage
and to start the title with A DAY AT or IN

This page was made in a super class by Niki.
