Garden Goddess

My Mom finally got her new shed! So she's/we've been busy painting and re-felting the roof etc. She wanted me to get lots of photographs of her hammering the felt into the roof!
It was a lovely sunny day and the roofing felt gets all nice and warm... heavenly lying against it...
I've been trying to remember what I learnt at the retreat a few months ago and try out new techniques.  I was washi tape as borders and used a hexagon template to draw shapes - some were covered and trimmed to size with washi tape (does that make sense) and some were stitched.
The white AC Thickers don't tend to stay stuck with me so I put one stitch on each letter to hold it there.
The photograph is a flap with journaling on the other and this group of other photographs.

So excited about doing this Camp Scrap class next month. I usually don;t finish online classes so hoping the summer warmth and sunshine will help me scrap! This class I'm not sure about... I think it would be good to get more/better use out of my phone camera....

Sarah's Card Sketch Challenge

 Finally got around to reading Life Of Pi and thought this would be good for a simple layout for the challenge at Sarah's Cards. I really want to see the dvd now!
 This is the 28th book I've read this year.  The "this years book #" is just below and free for your personal use.

The chevron stamp border, I carved out of a rubber stamp a few weeks ago.  I really like making my own stamps now and then.

Liberation Day

Liberation Day 2013

Thursday 9 May 2013 will mark the 68th anniversary of the Liberation of Guernsey from the occupying German Forces after five long dark years. Liberation Day continues to be an important and poignant day in the history of the Island. Families, friends and visitors to Guernsey celebrate the priceless concept of freedom and enjoy a day filled with the pageantry of Church and Military Vehicle parades as well as wide range of entertainment and activity for all age groups.

 Not just a day off work.  The day when the Germans left Guernsey and we were liberated! Thinking about how to do this as an insert for Project Life.

50 Books

 I had planned to blog about this monthly but for some reason or other I never got around to it.  My aim to read 50 books this year is going along good.  I am up to book 21 (I haven't updated the list yet). Last year I aimed to read 100 books!! and got to book 38 so 50 should be doable.
My Mom is doing this with me this year and she is on book 28!  Why does reading have to make me sleepy??? Most of the books I have read are on my Kindle... I like how easy a Kindle makes reading.  It's easier to hold and amazing to have a huge selection of books just waiting to be purchased!

Want to keep track of all your reading with me?
