Hello Everyone!
It has been four months and one day since I last posted anything on my blog. Life has been incredibly busy and for those of you that don't know my third grand daughter, Scarlett, was born one week ago on 6 June and she is just beautiful.
Spencer and Paige continue to grow and thrive and just get cuter by the day.

I have so much love for these littlies of mine. I have also been overseas which was wonderful. I got to go the Amsterdam, my hubby and son were there for work and I was there for play. We also went on to Cologne to Adele live in concert which was truly amazing. Not only does she have a wonderful voice but she is such a character and seems to be so down to earth. 

So all this busyness and also some personal issues have played a part in my not creating at all, anything. However, I am, with the help of a psychologist, reclaiming my life and finding my place again and trying to figure out just where I fit in and enjoying the process. 

I have enrolled in some classes on-line, which I am loving. I have bought myself a couple of adult colouring books which has been great for exploring the different mediums and how they react. I am slowly creating again. At this point in time I want to do PL for my scrapping and I am loving making cards and tags and I have even joined in a couple of challenges. So...... we will see.

After all that I do have some things to share with you. One of the classes I signed up for was Tim Holtz Creative Chemistry 101, 102 and now 103, and I also decided I am going to play along with his monthly tags - from the very beginning. We will see how that goes. Here are some of my tags using his techniques..

Then I started a PL style album for my daughter documenting her pregnancy. Here is the outside of the album. I will add pics of the inside another day. She wanted grey and white with a touch of pink.. the dragon flies are glittery.

Then I started a recipe book because I am also getting back into cooking and I needed somewhere to store my favourite recipes and this album that I found in my stash was perfect. AND I used my silhouette machine to cut out the cups. I am also trying to master that which is a bit of a challenge but we are getting there.

I grunged up an old spoon and tucked it into the ribbon on the spine.

I had been playing with some card backgrounds too and then made a few cards.

These next two cards are for the Creative Chemistry 103 Week 2 Challenge and I am very happy with both of them.


And... finally this last one I entered into the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge.

I have realised that I am a procrastinator to the point of being crippled by fear of what I do not  being ok. Now I am just doing it and I am doing it for myself and no-one else and that has been so liberating.

Thank you so much for stopping by and for leaving me a comment. Although this is for me your encouragement means a lot to me.

Till next time - Happy Creating!
