latest LO

Found a new website with a weekly sketch challenge

So decided to play along, this was the sketch

I didnt have a "set" of six pics so decided to take this large one of Leon and crop into pieces.

Once again used no PP (this doodling is so addictive lol) cut everything on my cricut using cutting up and Locker talk carts.The 'chain' is just a string of o's joined together. Really enjoyed this one and it was a quickie for me too only took about 4 hours LOL xTFLx

Have had Josh staying with us for the week and it has been nice.

We had a small birthday for him as we won't see him on the actual can't beleive my "baby boy" will be 20!

few more of my Zante album

These are my cheeky nephews Reece and Jamie, can beleive how much time they actually spent in the pool.!

Love the "clean lines" of this LO, used urban lily pp MM tiny alpha and thickers

Cool - this was my first LO using no PP I doodled the flowers then cut some buttons with my sizzix and added some actual butto, BG chipboard alpha and voila. And I do have to say I look a right wally in this hat! Last one for now the boys again jumpimg in the pool. This was my SLYMI week 34 LO

I have actually completed 12 pages now of my Zante album and I am really enjoying doing these 8 1/2 x 11 layouts

Couple more LO's

Couple more for my Zante album am doing an 8 1/2 x 11 album and have decided to do them all landscape
Loved this of the in laws , they look bored to tears but steve was watching the boys play table tennis and dianne was trying to play with her new digi camera

Our main reason for visiting Greece this year was Leon's brothers wedding, it was a lovely day and the bride looked stunning

I did my first attempt at machine stitching on this LO it wasn't perfect but I am very pleased with this lo it looks pretty and fresh

Am even getting a little better at blogging to let's hope I can make it a regular thing

Hugs x

Twisted Sketch 09

Here is my LO for the Twisted Sketch 09
I love to doodle so this was right up my street

Here I am again, time passes and I have done loads but as usual failed to share with blogland

I have been meaning to participate in the twisted sketch challenge each week and finally on week 9 I produced this.

the twist was to add doodling, well I seem to be doodle crazy right now and virtually all of my LO contain some doodles somewhere. Of course this obsession could also to be to do with the fact that my doodle dogs are amongst the best parts of my life.

Couldn't pass without sharing a couple of pics of them

Rodney seems to have found a "burr bush" and this is what happens when he gets a little nosy

And of course Peggy at 7 months couldn't be anything other than cute so a cute one of her
Will be back in the next couple of days to share some of the pages I have done
Toodle pip for now
