School project

I took my scrapbook album into work to show a colleague.
Another colleague loved the idea and asked me to do a yr7 class about scrap booking.
Maybe have inspired future scrapbookers lol.....

here are my sample pages

The kids really got into it. They brought in things to use and we used
wallpaper samples thanks to B&Q.

We even had a mini photo shoot at the start of the lesson!

Maybe able to post their work if I can get permission.
Watch this space....

Great fun had by all.....

Thanks for looking

Going green

I decided today that I would change all my accessories in my living room from red to green...
I know my poor husband and kids never no what to expect next ( No warnings I just do it ) lol x.

here are a few things I altered to match with my new room....

I love this cute little tea light lamp...
Its special as my Mum bought it for me, but was needing a little TLC x

I punched a scalloped circle inked the edge and added fake stitching.
I then added 2 paper flowers finished with a brown pearl.
I coloured 3 gems with my sharpies, ruffled some brown ribbon and finished the shade with
faux paper lace made from a border punch.

I bought some xmas decorations from ikea and had in mind to alter them.
I'd had this one hanging on my pc desk ever since.
so once my stash was out nothing was safe....

I glued a big brown flower to the back and covered the front with a scrap of green spot paper.
stamped a flower image onto brown card and cut out finishing with a green pearl.
I then added paper flowers, buttons and finished with bling (buttons,blooms and bling) LOL xx
I replaced the ribbon and hung it back on my pc desk ...

NOTHING was safe!!!!
next was the turn of my reed sticks.
I was bought these by my Dad and Madie when they came back from their holiday.

I tied a ready made label onto the bottle with ribbon and finished with a pin.

Thanks for looking
comments are very welcome
