Jenny the teacher

video


Dear Bloggers,
This post is nothing to do with scrapbooking.
I am a teacher and the other day I made a video of my class using their lego robots to fix a hole in a dam. I took the video on my phone and used Windows movie maker for the first time. The result is very rough but I was proud of it and thought you might like to have a look.


Bit of Heritage using Scrapmatts New Chipboard.

Dear Bloggers,
This month the Scrapmatts Challenge is to use their newest chipboard releases.  Now you can't get much more fun than that!!!
I used a 'Heritage' style approach dabbling in the brown, cream and green palette -  one that I do not usually use.


Here is the new Memory Keeper - such a lovely way to keep your special memories.


I love the chipboard chair - wish I had a couple IRL!!!

The Challenging Canvas

Dear Bloggers,

Sorry for the break in blogging but I have been busy creating my entries for the SBM Masters Competition.  It's all in now but hey it was a huge effort!!!!
I obviously can not show you my entries for quite some time but here is one of my canvases that I did not enter.  One of the requirements of the competition was a 12 x 12inch mixed media canvas.  I had several attempts at this and here is one of my rejects along the way.  Because I spent so much time on it and it did not turn out how I hoped I really do not like it.  I shoved it onto a shelf and turned it around so I could not see it.  After a few days a looked at it again and thought maybe I should at least blog these 'groovy girls'.  Maybe it's not the best work of art but hey these little girls are maybe worthy of one quick post - that is before I shove them into a drawer and never look at them again.
