I am BACK scrapping at last!!!!

Yes I am back!!!! After doing the intensive training at work and trying to keep that New Year's Resolution by making my own cards I have finally got the scrappy habit once again. It was tough I have to confess, I went along to a Scrapaholic's group in Bromley run by the lovely Pat and that kick started me but found it tough going! Still the lovely Helen was there next to me ripping away and filling me with inspiration! So what have I been up to then........

Well first of all I have finally got my DH onto a LO! Here he is the other week in the garden really chilled out. Been using my stash up so this is from a Doodlebug kit from Gottacraft that I have used some of but knew that I would end up using more for him.

Last month's Gottacraft kit was the lovely Crate Paper Blue Hills so these have just proved to be soo perfect for some lovely summery girlie LOs of DD and her cousins:

Birdie on this one is by the Artistic Stamper and has be lightly stamped and then I went over it with Sakara Souffle pen:
Finally I go back to the very beginning as it were with the kit that I got at the Scrapaholics crop. The techinique was Glossy Accents which I have used on the swirls kindly provided by using Pat's Big Shot and dies at the crop. Lots of butterflies (and the flowers!) from an Autumn Leaves set by Rhonna Farrer which have been coloured using H2Os. Lettering from a QVC kit by Brenda Pinnick!
