WOYWW 78 ....and I'm back

HI ....I'm back .....I feel ashamed that it is so long since I have attended this meeting …and me a founder member too. I have poped by to read what everyone has been up to and left the odd comment when I could. There have been so many reasons …. not least … lack of mojo and a strange mixed up life. We have had to give up our joint craft room in order to give Vicki’s nephews a room of their own now, let battle commence … those who know a little of the saga will understand this. It now means that the stash is divided and while my room is just piles of chaos, I squeezed on to Jay and Vicki’s table to attempt some creativity.

I cant remember when I last posted a LO ….well here are two …sorry the shots are not perfectly straight …my eyes were a bit wonky lol.

This one ….’’John’ … was the crop challenge last Saturday ….not something I find easy ….being kept to a set of rules ….and a time limit ….but I just managed it with 10 seconds to spare.

We had to take with us

2 patterned papers, 1 coordinating plain card stock, 2 photos, 4 buttons, needle and thread, paint, ink, a title and something of our own choice…..we also could journal in pen on the paper if we wanted ….. HOWEVER …. We had to construct the LO in a particular order. Those not taking part walked around watching how we interpreted the task and then voted . The great thing for me was that Vicki, who set it, said, at the start, that it was not a done deal that the best or most experienced scrapper would win….it was which person the ‘judges’ thought interpreted the list of items in that given order, best.It was actually great fun and I really enjoyed doing it ….. and then to come second with a little prize was the icing on the cake.

This is my Great Grand mother ...

also created at the crop ...(between chatting and munching).


If you want to know more about the people … and in the case of John, some little known WW11 history, then pop by my G the P Blog …click on the name on the side of this blog.

Two LO’s of my gorgeous Grandsons are due very soon ….one nearly done on the table.

I will get round as many of you as I can but the computer and my back really do not get on …yes another reason why I have been missing from the list …and I know others have the same problem.

Take care …I have really missed you all xx

Liverpool Lou (Anne) said...

Me again :-)
Oh Angie if only I was that good at quilts, but I'm a complete novice. The ones I showed there were some that were on display at the Knitting & Stitching show. If you really want to see my first attempts though scroll down to the 5th post titled 'Mini Art Quilts' (tried to do a link but it didn't work)I do hope you have a go you are so creative ;-)

Glad to see you back, you are not alone. Cute layout. I have sooo many old pics and no energy to get them sorted and put in some kind of order. My granddaughter wants ALL of my photos (someday). I have tried to get her over here to go through and put names on the pics, as no one but me is left to tell. She is now in college and working so no time for outside activities these days.

Spyder said...

forgot to say, me too with the artificial tree, really did get fed up with the needles being found for the next year, so bought a nice one in a sale, quite some years back now, only thing is, now every year, no matter how I do the tree , it looks the same..!there's no odd broken bits.

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

So good to see you back, dear. I missed you a bunch, even thought I popped by a few times, but not as often as I would have liked. I love those layouts, and that challenge sounded hard. Glad you won a prize.

It's hard when two families live under one roof. I sure hope things work out and your divided space soon gets reunited.

Happy belated WOYWW from number 3 this week.

Scrapcollectr said...

Wow, that contest was pretty rigid, but that's the challenge, I guess? You did a great job. I would have been flustered for the first 90% of the time alotted! Lol
Thx for stopping by. I posted The Card yesterday. Have a toasty day!

Lovely layouts and great photos ~ thanks for sharing Nicky ~30

Elizabeth said...

Your layouts are terrific - the combination of papers and embellishments compliment the period of the photographs perfectly. We share the same interests but I've been concentrating on Christmas cardmaking recently and I plan to get back to scrapbooking in the new year - visiting your blog will inspire me keep to the plan. Hope your back improves. Elizabeth #85
