The Sugar Bowl - #18 - Kathy's Sketch

Afternoon everyone. I really enjoyed this weeks sketch over @ http://sugarbowlblog.blogspot.com/2009/08/challenge-18-kathys-sketch.html
Part of the challenge is to use buttons!
xXx
I love this image, Did have a bit of a problem colouring in the gown - First I used twinkling h2o's in vanilla bean, then when I tried to add a little shading under her veil it looked really dirty, so I tried to thin it out and most of the h2o came off in little blobs, so had to try to remove them gently. I think it all worked out ok in the end though!!!

I have used:
Sugar Nellie stamp - Happily ever after,
Paper - Papermania, exquisite collection,
Ribbon - Anita's,
Woodware border punch,
Buttons and silver thread from stash.
Thanks for looking.

Sunset at Heacham

Evening everyone - No crafting today, although did treat myself to a small stamp set, so may have a go tomorrow. Had a late afternoon/early evening trip to Heacham beach to try to catch the sunset. It was a bit cloudy and when the sun finally did set it was behind some low clouds, so this was the nearest I got.

May not be the best photographic skills, but still a pretty, impressive view!

Love Fleur xXx

Hannah Montana!
Today Mackenzie was taking part in a short (15 min) performance of Hannah Montana. All the kids were great considering they only had 2 days to rehearse. Obviously being a scrapbooker I wanted loads of pics, But because Darren was at work he wanted me to film it - Although women can multi-task I couldn't do both properly so decided on filming and left my camera at home. When I got there I realised I had no battery left for filming, so now this is all I have! I just wanted to share my picture - cause don't she look great - Reminds me of the 80's, I'm sure I used to dress like that in my teens LOL!!!
Anyway thanks for looking.

Mojo Monday Turns 100 - DAY 2

Here is my 2nd card for Mojo mondays daily sketch to celebrate turning 100.
Hop over to
and have a look.

I have used a sugar nellie stamp - Gorjuss girl sitting, isn't she great.

I'm quite happy with the end result, but I do think I could have done the shading better, especially her hair - but hopefully with practice I will improve.

Hope you like it, thanks for looking!

Anniversary card

Hi, made this card today whilst Mackenzie was helping Daddy at work - she loves going to see him at work as she gets to drive the big John Deere tractors!
Have used a Penny black stamp - Day dreams, K&Co papers and a peel off for the sentiment, don't really like peel offs anymore - but thought it looked ok on this occassion, as I haven't got any silver ink. Added a bit of bling with the silver lace and the gems on the little dragonfly - also covered in K&Co papers.
Love Fleur

Daddy album

Hi, this is the last album to be posted - for a while. It was my first ever mini album I made. I'm very proud of it!

It was for Father's day!

I love you.

I made this for my husband instead of a valentines card!



Thanks for looking Fleur XXX

Another favourite pic

Promise this is my last blog, for tonight. Just wanted to share another of my fave pics. Probably doesn't mean much to anyone else. But I adore Mackenzie in her converse, I think they're so practical. I think they look lovely with anything from jeans to a pretty dress. So when we went to seaside and she just threw them on the sand I thought great photo opportunity.
