42 Beyond Normal

I made this house when I went to stop with my friend Hels, its not easy using others craft stash, as with your own you know where everything is, well you think you do LOL. It actually did me good as I crafted for the first time in a while, so huge thanks Hels xx

This house is 5 inches across by the top point being 6 inches, I used Distress Inks and Dabbers, a bit of water flicked on the background to, varios stamps from Hels collection, a homemade slide mount over the ladies face and the white pen, a Doo Dad to finish and of course the number and name of the street, quite apt for me I think, hope you like and thanks for looking xxx

Sunday Stamper Challenge Sisters

Thgis weeks SS challenge is Sisters, well a while ago I did a class at Scrapbook Sisters and it was to make your own background paper from plain white Bazzil, which my home made paper is the cover on picture 2. we then had a Maya Rd book inside a box to decorate, the top and bottom pictures I covered the pages in crackle paint and distress inks, I have used a variety of stamps from Paperbag Studios and The Queens Dresser Drawers, the bottom picture has also been stamped and cut out on homemade glossy card, some doo dads and glossy accents applied to, another poor description from me but you should be used to that by now. this is my first bit of crafting for almost a week, I seem to of lost my crafty habit.

Hope you like and I only have about another 12 sides to decorate, thanks for taking time to look xx

I Eat My Words (Decking Saga)

Well I have to eat my words here, a bit of a story to these photos, My Darling hubby bought home some old used decking, I told him I was not having that old rubbish put outside our back and I was adament. well the day I went to Ally Pally he decided he would start it, well when I arrived home with CraftyC ( Claire her normal name) my face I was not happy, well now its all complete and we have Plants and a great new patio set I have to say oops!!! it looks much better than before. I feel well rotten now, but well a womans allowed to change her mind.
Some of you have seen our back bit before decking, it will be interesting to see what you think of it now, just the rest of the garden could do with a sort out, but afraid the dog messes that up, can not have everything can I ?????

House Wine ( Sunday Stampers Challenge )

Anything for a laugh, this house shape is cut to this size as I had thought of joining the swap that Dan has joined ( Dans suggestion that I had a go, he will wish he had not now ) I had to drawer this and it needed certain measurements, well since making this, which is for the SS Challenge as I thought Wine and house, House Wine LOL I have decided that my house is rather rubbish, but ok for the challenge. But I will not be joining the swap.
Anyways I have covered it with broken china and faded jeans ink pads, then used the Artistic Stamper Wine stamp, I masked that and I have some graffiti looking stamps, so I used fired brick and stamped that over the top, the chimney area is a Paperbag Studio stamp, then I used that fabby white pen for some detail and hey presto almost finished house, which I hasten to add is awaiting the demolition team.
Thanks for looking and comments appreciated xx

I do not believe it !!!!!!!!

Yes Tagged again by my friend Shaz :-) promise and sorry but I am not passing this on as no idea who to pass it on to, this is what I have to do

Link back to the person that tagged you. 2. Post these rules on your blog. 3. Share six unimportant things about yourself.

here are my 6 things if i can think of 6 things

1 - I can not stand the smell of pig trotters cooking, as a child my mum often had them simmering all day on our old rayburn

2 - I have a scar on my leg a big dent from a dog bite

3- I was once engaged to be married to someone else and broke it of as I realised I loved Mark more and asked my ex to take me to Marks house so I could tell him how much he meant to me, oops

4- I once hit a motorcycle whilst riding my pushbike no hands on the wrong side of the road, going round a rather sharp bend, broke my nose and arm in the process.

5 - I used to work at a mental hospital ( and no I was not an inpatient )

6- My first car was a yellow mini with chrome wheels and bucket seats, way to go me LOL

how very boring were those facts xx

My baby has all grown up

Well what can I say this is not my usual stuff to blog but my Girlies all grown up, it was her last day at school today as you can see from the picture her blouse is all signed. she just has to go back for her GCSE exams now and hopefully get good enough grades for the 6th form.

I had to share this as I can not think where the 5 years have gone from when she was a new year 7 pupil and her saying I have 5 years of this, now here we are done. some of them signatures are rather rude to :-)
