Uncles Are Special...

I don’t seem to be making much at the moment, never seems enough time in the week to set aside to craft, life is a bit hectic recently again. Then when I do get the chance to play I just don’t know what to do, I end up pushing paper around on the desk or even worst tidying up my craft room!

Anyway here’s another layout I did a few weeks ago when I had found my mojo and literally smoke was coming out of my fingers with all the layouts I was making! I wanted to play with my crackle glaze that I’ve had for a while but not really done anything with it. Not sure if you can make it out but I used it on the chipboard letters.

My poor uncle is going through such a hard time of it at the moment, he was rushed into hospital with a mass of blood clots in his lungs a few months back, he was told he shouldn’t have lived to tell the tale and it was only because he is so fit that he pulled through. I found out this week that he has another mass of clots in his leg this time, it’s a huge worry… I just wish he would get well soon and get his life back to normal as they have been through so much this past year and a half.

Class of 1981 Layout

Here’s another quick layout I did the other week, I keep looking at it and wanting to add more but I don’t want to take away from the lovely stitched paper!

I’ve had this Prima 12x12 paper since April Ally Pally last year I think, bought it because I fell in love with it when I saw their range of stitched Mulberry paper, I keep pulling it out giving it a little stroke and then not knowing how to use it so putting it back in the ‘not to be cut’ box of 12x12 papers LOL!

I also love the Prima’s fabric flowers, with all the pearls and the sequins that sparkle… far too nice to pop on a card and give away LOL!

This is me in 1981 I’m the one on at the front on the left with the white cardigan and pink dress (Of course it had to be a pink dress!!)

Papers/Cardstock: Prima Art Stitched 12x12
