Stickers & More Stickers!…

Prompt number 6 from Shimelle for the ‘Something From {Almost} Nothing’ class was to use stickers. Now I have a box full of stickers of every variety…words, quotes, shapes, ribbon, bling & of course alpha’s! I must confess to an addiction to American Craft Thickers… vinyl, Chipboard, felt…it makes no difference, I love ‘em all, but, as I’m sure you will all have experienced, inevitably I end up with an assortment of consonants with insufficient vowels!! So, this was the prompt that really struck home!!

My first LO is so unlike me!! I’m not a ‘pink’ person..nor am I a girly girl, so quite how I have as many pink & pretty, girly stickers in my stash is a mystery!! I guess they’ve snuck in via kits & bulk buy bargains!!!
GirlsFunStill…this LO used up leftovers from FOUR different Thicker fonts & innumerable pink & lilac gem sticker flowers!!…& it’s a photo I love of a girls night out!

The second LO was inspired by Shimelle’s example in the prompt & used up almost a whole sheet of leftover Thickers alpha’s…
DirtyBoys   …along with another archive photo of the boys, taken in 2004. They were looking particularly grubby after ‘rescuing’ the rock that Nathan is holding from a ditch!!! As I remember, it came home with us & is still in one of the flower borders in our back garden!!!

So, I wonder what tomorrows prompt will bring?  There have been some absolutely amazing projects uploaded into the forum for each of the prompts so far…if you have never taken one of Shimelle’s classes…I would highly recommend you look out for the next one!!!

My boys are on a countdown to Easter now…or more particularly the school holiday, which is a week today. I do hope the weather will be good for the two weeks plus that they’re off…tonight it’s raining cats & dogs & very squelchy underfoot…it would be nice to be able to plan to get out & about with them.

I have just opened an email with this amazing photo…

It’s sunset at the North Pole, when the moon is at it’s closest position to Earth…can you imagine how awesome that would be to witness first hand?!!



I’m going to put my feet up now & catch up with a couple of episodes of ‘Fringe’ on Sky+…Lee has just made the coffee & there’s a ‘Snack-a-Jack’ with my name on it waiting patiently!  He’s having a sugar glazed ring doughnut & offered me one, telling me that it would be OK as they have non-fattening centres!!! Ha Ha!!

Thanks for dropping by….wishing you a great weekend, whatever you may have planned!

if only we had non fattening centres......

Do you know whats weird I only noticed a few years ago that there are two spellings for centre/center.I was never taught the difference so just guess now!!!!!

Oh, I do love a nice doughnut! You've done a brilliant job of the sticker busting..I'm trailing behind on that one. I love how you've arranged the alphas.

It's the end of term for us today so after a very late night at the school concert last night we'll be taking it easy over the weekend.

Chicago sounds very exciting! You know what they say.."The Windy City is mighty pretty.."

I absolutely love the Boys layout .... I also love that your letters were in order! I wasn't able to do that with mine...so I stamped the word and then just added the stickers from the alphabet... hope you are enjoying the scrapbook class as much as I am!

Have a great weekend :)

What a clever way to spell out a word amongst lots of other letters, and I love the masculine look of the layout, I always struggle to find ways of using 'boys' photos.
Loving the pink page too!
