March.....done!!!!


Well, I can't believe that after such a slow start my March pages were actually finished on time...but, they were!!! Here's the proof...and I made sure that April was be ready on time and I wouldn't start yet another month in arrears!!
I did have some problems with this one...I decided on a yellow and blue theme, a sort of cross between daffs and rain, and absolutely hated it when the paint was on. I tried to tone it down, but didn't really seem to get very far. To be honest, if March hadn't been on the back I would have just ripped it out!! After a bit more blending and over-stamping with a Stampin' Up 'Sanded' stamp, it was starting to improve. I then found the Woodware rainy stamps lurking at the bottom of a box.....and suddenly things were on the up!! I used my Inktense watercolour pencils to colour the stamps and even put a bit of Stickles on each raindrop. I love the wellie boots along the bottom and have to say....it's now my favourite page so far!!!

Well, it's our Wedding Anniversary tomorrow....and Ian's card still isn't done, so I'd better go and do it! Got lots of new goodies to play with after a delivery of Tim Holtz Sizzix dies and a trip to AFTH last Sunday! You see I HAD to buy the new stuff to make the Anniversary card!! :)

Bye for now xx

Jayne, these pages are fabulous! The wellies are just gorgeous!
Glad to see that I'm not the only one who HAS to buy new things to make that card...
PS - Don't laugh at me but I bought the new Tim dies from Lynn's (where I teach scrapclasses) last week - BUT - I haven't got a bigshot! I'm waiting for the new machine to come out - saw him using it on a CHA video clip and knew I NEEDED one!

Fab April pages. I just adore the wellies along the bottom of the page. Looks a bit like next to my fridge!
Well Done for getting your March pages done. Congrats on getting some washing outside! & glad you escaped the dreaded OFSTED.
I've a friend who is an inspector. It's so funny when she calls at my house as my 9 yr thinks she's coming to inspect his room!! hehe.
Hope you have a lovely Wedding Anniversary.
