Show & Tell Monday

21:05 Karen 0 Comments

Hello, hello lovely blog friends.

Today's post is a little later than usual but at least it is still on Monday.  I totally forgot to blog last week - not quite into the swing of things yet.

So what have I got to show you today - well when I scrolled through my phone to see what I had made over the last two weeks it was 10 - yes 10 -layouts so rather than subject you to all 10 in one post I will show some today and schedule a post for Wednesday with the others. 

My first was using the design of the week from Silhouette from a couple of weeks ago - May Your Days Be Cosy.

I knew I had the perfect photo of Gracia and Josh snuggled up by the Aga in their pj's.

I also made a little print and cut card. 

Also, for the Silhouette blog I did a tutorial on how to make your own circle and snowflake background.

My next layout was rather self indulgent and a response to a journaling challenge on Mind The Scrap

I am so glad I discovered the Mind The Scrap kits and facebook group they have given me so much inspiration over the past few months and I am eagerly awaiting the February kit as I type. 

This one is for a year long sketch challenge I am running on the ATDML # Create Facebook page Loved the sketch I chose for January.

My final page is in response to the monthly sketch challenge on Crafters@Play - I do love a good sketch and Heather, who runs the challenge, always comes up with a good sketch.   Again I used my Mind The Scrap kit. 

My quote to live by this month is this one - I follow Amanda Rach Lee and she does a YouTube every month on how to set up your monthly planner with beautiful doodles.  I was inspired and decorated my planner page similar to her one. 

If you have gotten this far - well done and perhaps we will see each other again on Wednesday x

Reasons To Be Cheerful

1. Gracia and Josh are very happy in their new house and eagerly awaiting their new puppy in early March.

2. Sunday walks at Marks Hall have become the norm and we all enjoy them immensely, especially the tea and cake that inevitably follws the walk. 

3. The prospect of a full day's crafting tomorrow - oh how I love only working three days a week.
