Ok so its been a while since I was blogging.....AGAIN.....and then doesn't blogger / my lappie go and throw a hissy fit so I just couldn't upload a picture!!!  anyway after much wailing and gnashing of teeth I finally was able to upload a pic of my latest layout!!!!

This is a layout using the absolutely GORGEOUS Fancy Pants papers from the My Family line.  They arrived in my latest kit from The scrap room and I just couldn't wait to get scrapping with them!!  I picked some pictures of me and my son when he was a littlely!!!  I remember this picture as it was the first time I went out at night since he had been born and I was torn between going out and staying in with my little fella!!!
I cut various size squares of paper and inked them with Rusty Hinge Distress Ink, I added a few torn strips and some card candy (love those little yokies) and the quote which came with the fancy pants papers was enough journalling as it sums up how I feel about my sweet boy :)

........Because just being together is enough..................

Oh my I can't believe how long its been since last I put up a blog post!!!  My little patch of the web is seriously starting to gather dust!!!  Sadly it has been that long since I did a reasonable nights crafting as well!!!  Don't you just HATE it when life gets in the way of more interesting things like crafting!!!

Thankfully my friend Jess asked me to teach a scrappy class at her last workshop which got me out of my scrappy drought as there was no way I was gonna embaress myself infront of a room full of women :o)

I decided to teach a framing technique that I learnt at the GBCE last year.  It is something that I use alot and is soooo quick and easy.  I covered and decorated my frame, mounted it on some lovely brown bazzil cardstock which was then mounted on a piece of patterned paper that I distressed and inked.  I stamped my title on some cream cardstock and mounted it on foam pads with some ribbon threaded though it for effect.  I used my new Hero Arts journalling stamp to write a wee message on the side.

Finally back to scrapping and oh how I have missed it......crafting trully is required to keep one sane :)  Here is hoping its not another two months til my next post!!!
