My Creative endevours have moved

MY NEW ART BLOG HERE I would love your company.

A New Year and a New beginning... I have created a new blog filled with old and new art. It is time for me to focus on something new. I will be leaving this blog open for inspiration and so I can look back at what I have achieved in the future but I will be adding no further content here.

Award time and digi scrapping

After seeing June's new freebie paper packs (see post below) my fingers got the buzz and for the first time in ages I did some digi scrapping. Love, love, love these colours together and there will be more up for grabs as the week goes on so I may even find that my mojo has come back completely cos I'm feeling very creative right now. The photo is of my niece on a day at the park when it went from a lovely day to freezing cold in just a few hours. I captured her while she was taking a breather and obviously a moment deep in thought... probably wondering when home time would come lol

Okay now onto some long awaited awards.... I really must get more organized and start remembering to pass these on... I appreciate each and every one but am just sooooo absent minded...please forgive me for taking so long with them.

Once again I can't remember the rules so I am just going to pass each award on to a couple of people.

This lovely lady is from the very talented Pearl
and I would like to pass this elegant lady on to Linda and Marlou
Next this fab award from the gorgeous Kristen
I shall share this one with Terrie and June

I also received this special friendship award from my buddies Sharon and June
I'd like to pass this on the Kath and Dawn
and this lovely lady from the lovely Karen
I'd like to pass this on to Debbie and Emma

Last but not least are these two fabby awards from the wonderful Dawn
and I want to award these two to some of my new followers... go say hi to them :D Chris and Craftgirl
Okay that's it from me today... or should I say that's it from me tomorrow... cos blogger has been naughty and instead of getting this posted when I should have it's a day late... Mr blogger has a lot to answer for!!
Happy crafting all
Catchya later
