Blog catchup

When I think I'm back into some kinda regular routine  posting projects on my my mind it looks like a great plan but, it has not worked out! So, here is a catchup­čśâ
August inspiration board for " Sketchy Boards" is really pretty! A gorgeous photo and fabulous sketch!

I have created this vintage page using a photo of my mum in her early twenties. The papers from Kaiser  "Keepsake collection" are really pretty! I won them by entering the Kaiser monthly challenge but have not used them up until now. I find it difficult to scrap very busy pattern paper, but I think it works because I kept the other layers plain to keep the focus on the photo.

Kraft Plus had a fun challenge - here is the recipe

My page...with lots of my favorite things.

Next - A friend asked me if I would make her 3 Welcome cards for family arriving from England for a holiday. I have used Altenew Beautiful day stamp set.

Yesterday I had the pleasure of teaching a class at'The Crafty Chain' workshop wonders event with these very talented ladies. It was my first ever teaching experience...omg I was nervous!
Thanks Shelley and Alison for having me and thanks Karen this collage.
