Yikes! Just when you thought it was not going to be mentioned again for at least another 6 months, here I am with the dreaded 'C' word!
Obviously it's a LO with Henry and it's another digi LO, but I have to admit that I kind of cheated for this one.
I used a 'plopper' for this. For those of you that don't know, a plopper is a ready-made digi LO that you just have to add your picture and journalling to.

I downloaded this plopper for free from Free Digital Scrapbooking and is called Holiday Joy, designed by Marie Stones.

Having had 3 weeks off recooperating, I'm back to work tomorrow. I'm incredibly nervous, although I don't know why. This will also be the longest car journey I will have done on my own since the accident, which scares me a little. I drove at night for the first time yesterday though! Hopefully it won't be too long now before I'm back and feeling confident behind the wheel.

So this one didn't take me very long to do and it's not my design but I still like it.

Here's Henry

Another digi LO. Remember that I am only just beginning so I'm still on basic steps. I haven't learnt anything new yet from the last digi LO but I wanted to make sure I really know what I'm doing before I move on.
Will I ever really know what I'm doing? ... well that's debatable!!!

So here's Henry again. My lovely labradoodle. Do you notice a common thread with him? Both these pages have been about where Henry is not supposed to be!! He's such a monkey but so adorable.

Hope you like it.

Digital LO

I bought myself a new laptop before christmas and it came with Adobe Photoshop Elements. Seeing as I'm still off work recooperating, I thought I'd have a little dabble. It really is quite tricky, but the more I use it the easier it will get.

I'm following a course from last year over on 2 peas in a bucket called digi 101 which takes you step by step on how to make digi LOs. It was a monthly course last year, but as it's finished, I've downloaded each month so I can do them at my own pace.
So this is the LO from January (I shall do a couple more so I really get the hang of it before moving on).

I don't think it's too bad for a first go.

A card for mum

This is the birthday card I have made for Simon's mum (the mark down the length of the ribbon is where the glue hasn't dired - I was too eager to blog it!!)
The stamp is by Penny Black and is called Garden Gossip. I've coloured it with promarkers and cut it out with a nestie (I so love my nesties!)

I'm going to enter this card into 2 challenges. They are:
Craft your passion - Button up (use buttons)
Hope you like it

A LO for a change!

So we have a new addition to our family. Say hello to Henry. He is a labradoodle and is just gorgeous. I've never known a dog with such a wonderful temperament. He adores cuddles and craves attention, yet is lively and playful too. We have soooooo many pics of him; he's like a new baby to us!

Look out for lots more lay outs with Henry in!

Oh dear

I expect you're wondering about the title post. Well it was my birthday on Friday and it was a birthday to remember. I had a very nasty car accident.
I hit the central reservation of a dual carriageway, then the kerb and flipped the car. We rolled a couple of times and landed upside down in a ditch. Both my son and I were hanging upside down by our seatbelts. The rescue services were able to get my son out, but I had to be cut free.
Neither of us have serious injuries, not even broken bones. Ryan had a cut on his head which just needed glueing together. I had to stay in as I've hurt my head and neck but nothing serious.
How it wasn't worse I will never know.

Anyway, the oh dear, relates to this card. I was meant to blog it on Friday and enter it for some challenges, but I was rather busy at the tim. So here it is now.

I have used a Sugarplums stamp called Winter Emma which I have coloured with promarkers.

I am going to enter this for 4 challenges. They are:
Passion for promarkers - Thank you phrase
Papertake weekly - Anything goes
Fab n funky challenges - Anything goes
Totally papercrafts - Say thank you
I've got a week off work recooperating so I'll see if my neck will let me do extra crafting. Here's hoping!
