Sketch Support blog hop sketch.

So this month Sketch Support had a blog hop with all the members of it’s creative team and it provided a new sketch.  Given my photos my first attempt using the sketch I flipped it.


The second attempt I rotated each of half of the layout for a completely different look

Planning ahead…

Yesterday at work the personnel manager sent out an email asking for suggestions for the location for the staff Christmas party in DECEMBER.

Nothing like planning ahead.

The Pain of Every Little Hair

Another layout using this months one page sketch from Sketch Support.  I found these pictures of my brother getting a hair cut from a few years ago and used the Echo Park Little Boy Collection I just brought from Jessica Sprague.

Happy Valentine’s Day.

So I was reading a blog entry over at and they decided to do a TV Crush top ten list. Since it’s Valentines day I thought I’d give it a shot and to quote Phillips Schofield these are in no particular order.


10.  Neal Caffrey  - White Collar


9. Peter Bishop – Fringe  ( I also had a thing for Josh Jackson when he was Pacey too)


8. Seeley Booth – Bones


7. Patrick Jane – Mentalist


6. Justin Patrick – Fairly Legal  - (Just for the record I couldn’t stand Michael Tucco in Battlestar Galactica but I love him in this)


5. Shawn Spencer – Psych


4. Richard Castle  - Castle


3. Puck – Glee


2. Mark Sloan – Grey’s Anatomy


1. Marty Deeks – NCIS Los Angeles


Now I think this would make a good layout.

Best Ice-Cream Ever…

So last minute on Friday night my sister decided we were going to go to her godson’s birthday party which was yesterday afternoon. So Rachel could get everything organised Claire and I took the kids and the birthday boy out to Lyme Regis for the morning to play on the beach. We tried to find an open ice-cream shop but since it’s February most of them were closed so we had to get ice lollies in the souvenir shop.

As we sat on the bench eating them my two year old niece declared them to be the best ice-cream ever.


I’ve seen Allison Davis use one of her sketches and create and sun in the background and given this months sketch has a large circle in i thought I would give it a try to scrap this. I love this layout.

Carpet Picnic



Wednesday, 9 February 2011


So my four week program on the biggest loser wii game ran out, so I ordered the new version Biggest Loser Challenge. It came on Friday but as I’ve been sick the last few days I haven’t really had time to try it until today.


My conclusions so far, it’s a lot tougher than the last game and I definitely can’t have Jillian Michaels as my trainer, she annoys me. It gives you the option of having both Bob and Jillian, but I think I’ll stick with Bob for now as I embark on my eight week Belly Busting schedule. Hopefully I will survive it.

I think I’m detecting a theme.



Anyone else detecting a theme?  This is the second layout in a week that uses a like from Nickelback’s song Photograph as a title.  The layout is based on the February 2 page sketch from Allison Davies.
