Heart X O...............

LIFE sometimes just gets so busy its hard to find the time to do the things you enjoy!............. All week I've been trying to get back in my craft room. I also have been slightly side tracked, which happens quite often! Anyway I love doily's..........I've have always wanted to learn how to crochet to make my own. So, on Friday Tereesa came over ........we enjoyed wine and cheese and I got my first ever crochet lesson. I must say she is a great teacher and has a lot of patience!  I have been practising ever since.........At  one stage I did consider giving up, thinking I have containers full of vintage doily's that I've collected I'll just cut them up, that would be so much easier. LOL

Anyway that's what I've been up to......................Here is a layout  that I did last night, when I put my crochet hook down...ha ha ha. This picture was taken just before Christmas of Paul and my self,........ we don't have many photo's of us together and I thought this one was quite a nice why not scrap it for Valentines Day!

Challenges I'm entering........

"Fantabulous Cricut" is having a "Share the Love " challenge - put the word love on your creation.......its stamped down the bottom using my favourite Stampin up set "Love Defined" The little tree is from that too.
