well, I tried going to bed but we seem to be living in the middle of a firework display tonight! they have been going off continually since 7:30pm so I gave up and went out to do some crafting!!
I wasn't in the mood for anything projects too big, feeling kinda lazy tonight!! but then I remembered I have been a bad Lou and not gotten an ATC into Jenn's Wicked Wednesday ATC challenges yet so that was my mission!!! an ATC for my lovely Jenn!!!
Its a new years theme....perfick!!!!! and I had forgotten just how delicious making ATC's is!! Luckily I managed to find my pile of printed Ellie's from SC digi's and trimmed her down to the right size (3.5x2.5 inches) She was just right to sit inside that, phew!!I even dug out my copics for a grungey kind of look and added the year 2012 to the balloons (...in my less than nice handwriting,grrrr!!)
I embossed the edges of my ATC in my cuttlebug with my tiny bubbles embossing folder and gave them a good old distressing treatment with Faded Jeans DI, then I found dome yummy little swirls in my SU tiny tags stamp set and splonked them along the edges with some Frayed Burlap DI.
mmmmmm, this photo actually looks a bit pants so I will take a new one tomorrow, I think I have actually got a great big greasy mark on my lense from taking piccies of Mo yesterday so I really need to clean that up too!!!
happy New Year All!!! off to get a cuppa and a biscuit now before I try and nod off asleep!!
huge hugs Lou xxxx
Before I go on much further I want to wish you all a super fab and very happy new year. I have had such a year of ups and downs but mostly ups and I wanted to thank each and every one of you for being my "ups"!!
You comments and encouragement cheer me up so very much and wombling along to your blogs inspires me each and every day. So huge huge hugs go out to you all xxxxxxx
This holiday has been very much family time. I haven't been out much and I have loved every minute. I have managed to spend some time with most of my family which has been wonderful and yesterday scott, mo and I had a wonderful day, followed by a fantastic night for scott, Ryan and I. Mo was so sleepy he had gone to bed before ryan arrived so scott, ryan and I vegged out on the settee and watched the Fast Five (..,,yeah again but you know you can never get too much of vin deisel....:) !!)
The clock above is the clock that we made for our parents, scott's nana and grandad and scott's sister and BIL. You would not believe how many photo's of our squidgy boys we needed to take for this clock!!!!
I had decided that I wanted the boys to be looking at each other from 2 of the windows and then together in the last one. Its a shadowbox clock so sorry about the shadows in the photo I took, they look really cute nestled in their boxes!!! I think in all we had 100 pictures of Ryan, 200+ of Mo and the just 8 of them together as they always get a good piccy together straight away!!!
I have some crafting planned for today and trying to catch up with my BF on skype!! Have a fabby new year!!
huge hugs Lou xxxx
