Lost Photos...

Well, I didn't expect to find so many photos on the old laptop and it has taken me quite a while to sort them out :( but I have eventually got to a point where I can edit them and add them to my gallery over the next week.  It has been a bit of a difficult week for my little one, the jet lag has taken quite a toll and she has been in and out of school.  The teachers have all been very understanding so hopefully we will have a better time of it now and I will also have a bit more time to work on my blog.  I do have some cards that I will be taking photos of but the SD card seems to have vanished from my phone, it must have made it's escape on one of the many occasions when i has been dropped :( Anyway, my daughter has a new phone so I will be able to use her old one and get some up to date stuff on her.

I have been working on a mini album and have found a way to incorporate my stamps in with it so I can do some 'in progress' photos for you but for now it is back to the washing and ironing of school uniform.  I hope you have a good week,

Take Care,

As promised, here are a few pics of the cards that I have made during the past year or so;

Now I am a bit more familiar with using, I hope the few others I have to show will not take as long to edit.  I will also put some more photos in my gallery, of older makes, that I found lurking on my lap top.

I hope you like these, take care and will be back soon

Time Flies......

....but it hasn't all been fun :( I cannot believe that it has been 18 months since I last blogged.  I gave up my crafting for a while as I just did not have the inclination, but over the last 6 months or so I have ventured back out to my craft room and started to put cards together again.  I have also fallen in love with the mini albums and file folder albums that are so popular right now, I probably spend more time on pinterest than anything else, even the kids have been infected with pinterest fever.  I will sort out the photos of the cards I have made and blog them soon, I hope and will try to blog more regularly more as a record of my card/album making than anything else. It will help me get some routine and structure back to my life.  Well that's all for now...

Take Care and I'll be back soon,

Technology ..AAARrrrgh!!!!

Finally I am able to get on blogger :) !  For the last couple of days, every time i have tried to post, I have had to contend with a pop up advert that I could just not get rid of and then after numerous closing down and re-starting I have got on.  I even downloaded an ad blocker for a small donation but that didn't help so after some web reading I have had to download a new browser just for Blogger?! Fingers crossed ;)

I have had a quiet day in the cabin, just pottering around listening to the old eighties music and making my card which is off to America for my Brother-in-Law's birthday;
