Wicked times!!!

Here are a few more pages I've done recently. I'll start with the one I did for Andrea's challenge this week on I love these challenges because they make me do pages I wouldn't normally and I'm finally getting near the end of the Honeymoon album.

Credits: Challenge 25 Template from Kat Designed, Smooches by Ziggle Designs and Amanda Heimann Designs.

Here's another one I did using the Smooches kit with one of Britt's templates. I think this is my favourite page I've ever done...I loved this moment and I think the template and kit just fit it perfectly.

Finally, another London layout. Only a couple more til I can get it printed. I really wanted to do this one justice as we both LOVED this show. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.

Minnie Marathon Weekend...and a few more!!!

Ok, let me start with some of the pages I did for the Mousescrappers Minnie Marathon Speed Scrap at the weekend. I was lucky enough to participate in 9 of the 10 scraps so it was great to get so many pages done. I'm running out of photos and inspiration for the rest of the honeymoon so I started on a couple of pages from Paris from our October 2008 trip:

More Craftrak

I went to my friend Gillian's on Saturday night and we got some good crafting done while having a wee girlie gossip. I'm happy with the 4 mini cards I got done. I'm going to send them out slowly so that I can look forward to some cards coming through the door. Here they are:

Also, while I'm on here, I need to give a shout out to Emma for organising what is going to be a fabulous speed scrapping weekend on mousescrappers on the 24th & 25th of this month. Looks like there is going to be lots of great participation prizes and the added bonus of getting lots of pages done! Come & join in if you get a chance.

That's all for today. Hope everyone had a good weekend.

Take Care,

Here's a double page digital spread I did tonight from when we went to see Legally Blonde in London. I'm not too sure I'm quite happy with it but am not sure what i need to add....maybe some more elements.

I was in my local craft shop at the weekend and they were having an open day for this new product called Craftrak. Basically you make a mini card and send it to someone on the website and someone sends one to you. You can track where in the world you cards end up as people can keep passing them on. I made my first card on monday and sent it on tuesday so hopefully it should arrive any day. Here it is:

Well, today I got home and I received my first craftrak card. I think it's going to be a bit addictive and it's nice to receive some handmade cards.

That's all for today, still need to sort out those sideways photos as they're really bugging me.

Thanks for looking,

Ruthie xx
