"makes photos"





here they are, some of the finished projects from the weekend! The christmas album is one I was meant to have done before christmas to hold a cd of our festive photos, but alas it was not to be (better late then never I suppose lol! Least I have it ready for next Christmas!) I got the tutorial from Decembers edition of Crafty Stamper. The "M" is a wooden piece I pick up from Avoca Handweavers Store. Also my new stamps arrived today from London and I am completely in love, all ready working on a card with them, so will post that later tomorrow! Tfl, mandyxx

Saturday determination!

I will get all those projects on my table finished, all those half finished ones, the ones I start, then get distracted because I have found something else that sparkles and catches my eye!. Maybe if I say it enough I will start to believe it and convince myself lol!! I have canvas's, albums (ok loads of albums) that I so have to finish, some that have been there since since last years crafteire and now with it being a year later and another crafteire taking place this weekend, I feel shamed into completeting them, so thats the plan for today, to lock myself to my desk and get something, anything finished............................will start after the coffee kicks in! Wish me luck, if I am not back with a post by.........this evening I am lost forever! Have a great weekend, hugs mandyxx

My Paperplay



entry this week! This weeks challenge was set by the talented Jackie, to create a project using B& W!!!! Very hard, not colours I normally chose, but thats why its called a challenge, so we push ourselves to create things we would not normally do and that are out of our comfort zone! I really enjoyed this one! Here "it" is, I say " it" because I dont know what to call it LOL!! Its not a card, altered item of LO, so will go with thing for the moment! tfl mandyxx
