Craft Club project...

I attend a Saturday morning Craft Club run by Niki and this was last weeks project that she took us through... a set of 4 x cards with a holder. They were all made using Stampin' Up! products...

Thanks for looking!

I spent a couple of weeks in Copenhagen recently for work and though I didn't really get to see the sights particularly I did get to see the Elephant Parade! It is an open air art exhibition of 103 elephant statues dotted around the city that have been decorated by famous and upcoming artists. The aim is to contribute to the conservation of Asian elephants and the public awareness of their life threatening situation. I didn't get to see all 103 of them, but I did get to see just a few that I walked past each day... love the colours! I see a scrapbooking page coming on..

I think this one below is my favourite... love the design!

Look closely at the one below, the design is made up of hundreds of painted faces...

So... I got to see 9 of them, only 94 more to see!

Just looking through my recent photos and thought I must share these ones. They were taken at the last GoGo Getaway I went to in March and there was an amazing field of daffodils just outside the venue we were staying at. It was a very popular spot for photos!

Had a great time all weekend just scrapping with a fab group of people, look forward to catching up again at the next Getaway!

Well, I have finally made it into the world of blogging! Only taken me a few years to get here... I set up a template on Blogger about 3 years ago and finally I have got round to making it live! Anyway I hope you enjoy your visits to my blog, I want this to be a place to share my cards and scrapbooking and anything else crafty that I get up to! But I also want to share little snippets of my life... I have family and friends overseas so this is a great way for them to keep up to date with what we are up to....
