Not talking to you lot.

As nobody commented on my last post. Waah. I only do this to get some love ya know.
Do I smell? (Actually yes I have just come back from charing a meeting which always makes me sweaty and will have a bath in a mo')
To be honest tho', I think a blog is kind of cool as you get this record with pictures of your life.
So I don't do it for the response. But it is nice!
Trouble with hols is that they end and then you come back to work. I've had a busy old day today. BUT I did manage to finish a layout I started last night and some of my work is getting ready for Bible study tomorrow on the theme of "My faith scrapbook". It wasn't my suggestion honest!
Lots of dubious people at the moment!
But we are going to make pages about different dimensions of faith. |Tomorrow it is my journey of faith. I have already made one sample page which is "arty" and I want to try and do another which is more linear in style.
There will be chalks and punches and embossing and paper on offer and i hope it will be ok. I am pretty nervous today...

When I was at morning prayers at one of my church's yesterday the theme of the reading and prayers was "hope" and I said I wanted it to be the watchword of the day. I thought it only right that I should scrap it. So I squeezed a little scrap time in.
Its an 8.5x11 size page
All the paper and cardstock is Love, Elsie. The stars, buttons, photo corner and heart are hand cut in Elsie stylee. Don't look too hard at the scalloped top. Maybe it's that I am left handed. Maybe I just need a straight line to cut along. Anyway wonky is the new straight. The letters are my new Technique Tuesday ones. Do they rock or what? (As Elsie would of course say).
I was going to have a Charlie's Angels vibe going on with this picture but I prefer the message now as that is my dear hope for my children.
And for everyone actually.

right better go and have that bath...

Seeing as you must have had your bath by now it must be safe to post a comment. I'm pleased to see that you have your priorities so sorted that you turn your other priorities into a scrap page. Gorgeous work btw.

Hazel said...

I love the idea of the faith scrapbook and hope it goes well today. The 'hope' LO is great.

Paula said...

Gorgeous page.
Im guilty of ignoring a lot of blogs as I'm poorly at the moment & I often spend well over an hour looking & commenting on people's gorgeous work. Yet many of them never bother to drop by.
I'd rather be resting or crafting but I do always stop by yours, just don't always comment.

I've not been around all the blogmates for a couple of days - trying desperately to get some mojo back and make a dent in my crafty tasks list.

Please accept my most sincere, and humble apologies!
