Prima style flowers revisited

Been ages since I used prima style flowers.  I think I used them to death at one point, but enjoyed revisiting them, on this layout.

The Craft Cupboard trilogy DT project.   And as always, simple is the key.

Monthly Photo Share Day 11 - Flowers.

I got carried away with this one....but here's a little selection of the photos taken on day 11.



 
 
 I love that spring is starting so show itself, such a pretty time of year.  Starting to think about clearing up the garden and planting up some new border plants.  Just waiting to be sure the frost is over.

Monthly Photo Share days 5-10

Day 5 - Logo.  Yummy chocoholics logo. 
 
 
 
Day 6 - What's inside?  You may well ask.
 



Day 7 - Smile.  I couldn't find a willing party, but found this self portrait my daughter drew for the school year tea towel LOL she looks like Mr Potato Head.  She is far more beautiful in real life.
 


Day 8 - Sky.   The weather was awful this day, but I didn't cheat and attempted to take a photo of the sky.  Not brilliant, but I kinda like it.



Day 9 - A treasured Item...I have many treasures - my beautiful kids who I never thought I Would have, my parents who I am lucky to still have around, they celebrated 60 years of marriage 2 years ago. I have photographed my silver sixpence from the year I was born. To remind me to treasure every day, every blessing and all the people and lovely things that come into our lives. Nothing lasts forever.


Day 10 - Shadows.  The sun has been playing peek a boo today, so was really difficult to get shadow photos so I quickly took this shadow puppet with my ipad, when the sun quickly peeked out from behind a cloud and through my window.




I am enjoying the challenge of taking a photo a day, Didn't think I would make it to day 10, YAY me, so far so good.

Monthly Photo Share

So, I was asked to join a monthly photo share.  I am rubbish at photography and rubbish at keeping up with these things, so I thought why not.  Who Knows? my photography may improve and I may for once finish something that I started.  I also thought it might be a good idea to share those photos on my blog, which will remind me to visit daily, and who knows my blog entries may become a habit.
Here's hoping....

Day 1.  Something that is so you.

Stationary, I just love it.  Paper, Books, Journals Pens, You name it I love. I can not walk past a stationers, and more to the point I can not come out empty handed.  This photo is of the books closest to me at the time and my current favourites.  I can't begin to tell you how many I really have.

 
 
Day 2.  View from your window.
 
This reminds me my garden needs a good tidy, but with the frost still visiting that will have to wait.
 
 
 
 
Day 3.  The shoes you are wearing.  This was my housework day so I was wearing my comfy flossies.
 
 
 
Day 4.  Money.  Now if you were wondering why you don't see many 2 pounds coins, the answer is below.  I have them all.
 


Please check back tomorrow to see what day 5 will bring.  :). x

DT Layout for The Cupboard Trilogy March 2014 - Mothers.
Loved doing this one.  There was a day when I didn't think I would ever be a Mother, and here I am proudly posing with my two beautiful children.  I am so proud of them both.
As you probably all know by now, I am a woman of simple pleasures which is displayed in my work, or at least I hope it is.  Nothing too technical, some layering of items, little bit of building height on titles, seal and ribbon added.  Faux stitching on paper.
 
Thanks for looking.  And if you would like to leave a comment please do.

Random Items in an envelope.

Last week a few of us decided to challenge each other, by sending and envelope of oddments to each other.  The recipient must make something with the items and show before and after pictures.  So here is my items..


and here is what I did with it
Apologies for the bad photo, but I think you can see where and how I have used the items.
