LSH Family Hop

Hi All........

I am a member on a site called alilscrapofheaven.ning.com    They are hosting a blog hop due to take place on 15th August at 9am America time.  A post will appear on my blog and you are all invited to comment on the post to be put into the "bowl of chance" to win one of 4 mini albums that I will be giving away.

I am in the process of making the mini albums and will post pictures here when I have completed them.

I hope to see a lot of traffic for my blog on 15th August and lots of comments, nice ones of course!

I have to dash now as I need to get back to work.

Much love and huge hugz

Bruce Rides Again!!

It's late, or early, depends how you look at it. I have just finished watching Carmens Kiss.  Not quite what I expected but it was good all the same.  Bruce didn't make an appearance until after about 26 minutes but it was worth the wait.  Fabulous performance!  I am going to sleep a happy lady.  Roll on Disturbance, Re-Kill and SecretStone. 

Night night.............
Love

Saturday Antics

Hiya World............

My copy of Carmens Kiss arrived today.  I will be watching it later!

Here are some pictures of a Pirate Mini that I made for my Auntie Yvette Whitfields birthday on 4th July.  I had so much fun making it and researching all the interesting stuff about pirates.


This is the front cover.  I used rings to bind it but maybe it would have been better with ribbon.


The inside cover and it says, "why is the rum gone" and a licence.  I got the idea for the licence from a fellow youtuber, Roxy, I think her channel is roxycar1.


It ended up being a huge album and she said she liked it.

I have a friend in America called Kelli and we agreed to swap TP albums and here are a few of the pages that I made for it,  It was my first one and I was really pleased at how it turned out.


I titled it "friends".  It was made from 2 kitchen roll tubes cut in half and 2 toilet paper tubes.  Just in case you are worried we have a bog roll holder (in the shape of a frog!) and they are clean.  I covered them in paper and then made various pockets and tags.


Awesome mini album.  Massive mini album.  To say its only made out of tubes it got really big.


The back with all of my details on. 


A pocket that I created for a page.  I really had fun with bits of paper and tiny tags for a change.

I also made some T!m Holtz Swivel Clasp Charms with the theme of the beach......


I know that Pat Minges (America) got one of them.  She liked it.

I am going to get my fix of BP for the day now.  I can't wait to see what this latest film brings.  I will let you know what I think of it later.

Big Bruce Hugz

Hello Blog, I'm back!

It's been forever I know but I had a car accident.  An idiot ploughed into me as I was crossing a roundabout and then tried to say it was my fault!?!?!?!?!  I had to have a month off work and then I went back to work with a different client.  The lady that I work with now is 91 and sweet as a button.

I have completed many crafty bits and bobs while I have been away.  I know you want photos so here they are.............


This is one of 6 tags that I made as an angel swapper in a black/cream tag swap on the {scrap} beach.  It was hosted by Katherine Lonuzzo.  They were done really quickly and I had fun making them.


This is a picture of the second Travelogue that I did pages in.  The travelogue belongs to Ruthie Nava.  Her travelogue was titled 'Mama Said'  You can just about make out the picture on the right is of me and Mum when we were in America.  My tags on the left have quotes on the reverse and the pocket is acetate.


This was an advent calendar that I made for Nigel May from Create and Craft and Ideal world.

I had better stop here and get some sleep.  I will add some more photos later on today.  I am waiting for some to upload to Your Paper Pantey.  I did a mini album bi-monthly swap with Shanta Newby and made a gatefold paper bag mini.

My copy of 'Carmens Kiss' is on its way to me from Play.com.  I can't wait for it to get here.  It's my latest Bruce Payne fix.  I have finished his Biography Minis (2).  I just have to get them posted off to him.  I need to take some detailed photographs first.  Keep your fingers and toes crossed for me that it gets to him without any trouble.

Much Love
Vikki
