Firstly I’d like to say sorry if you haven’t seen me commenting on your blog posts for the past few days, I’m having a nightmare with commenting on my iPad. For some reason it keeps telling me, that I've been blocked from commenting because of a firewall, or that the blog has blocked me .... Please don’t shut me out LOL.
I’m hoping to get this sorted out soon, but I have been stopping by, and on several blogs, have tried to comment up to 4 times, and then given up. But trust me … I’ll get there in the end.
Ok, here are a couple of projects I’d like to share with you.
First is the wedding album for my cousin. I handed it over to her today, and was so touched by her sheer pleasure of it – I can’t tell you how much it means to me. Even her husband shocked me, he had tears in his eyes. The reason I say all this, is they’re not really crafty people. So sometimes, I worry when making something for someone, they’ll just look and say … uumm very nice and put it to one side. But they didn’t at all and for that reason, I’m walking around with a huge smile on my face right now.
So … here are a few of the pages. I kept the album pretty simple, and most of the pages were the same – papers and a border punch. Then ever so often I added some blossoms and bling. Well, with 50 photos, I really did find this was the only way to get it done.
Next up, is the cover of my Smash book …. I’m loving playing with smash books at the moment. This one is just for sheer fun. Sometimes, I want to make something, but not for anything in particular … say, I’ll stamp an image and play around with that, but it’s not for a card really; or I’ll think of an idea for something to go on this blog or pull an idea from a magazine … well, all those sort of things will go in this smash book. And I do have a page already I’ll share with you at a later date, but for now here is the cover.
Right, that’s it from me for now … I’m hoping to sort out my iPad this evening, I’ve done the usual, switch it off, switch it on again; checked my software is up to date; I’ve shaken it; told it off, and even screamed at it. None of this has worked, so now I’ll hand it over to Simon this evening and he’ll do something really quick and obvious and it will work! … you just know that’s the case, don’t you. So I apologise now if I don’t comment over something since Monday, but fingers crossed it will all work out.
