It does get done eventually and I love how the house looks once it is clean and tidy.
As a reward for doing the job I hate so much I always buy myself a bunch of flowers, sometimes just a very small one and sometimes a beautiful bunch of lilies. This time I chose chrysanthemums - do you think I might have purchased them with the colours of the Fancy Pants 6x6 papers from Ann's crop kit in mind? ;0)

- Using a grid background stamp - I used a clear acrylic stamp, not mounted on a block, and you curve it as you apply the ink to the page so you don't get sharp edges. I used some tea dye distress ink so it would look like part of the page as well, but the rolling makes it look like that image was always there.
- To complement the post marks I had a little round postmark stamp that says 'Remember This', so with black archival ink (as I was going to stamp partially on the photo) I stamped in the bottom corner of my photo - partly on the photo and partly on my papers.
- Word stamps - there are so many beautiful word stamps which you can see here but also check out the clear sets too for extra words here, pennants are a really good way to add words onto your own page, I used my words for the bunting on my kite.
|You can see some of the grid stamp as well as the word pennants here|

It's using the beautiful Graphic45 A Ladies Diary. I had a 'fiddling and playing'evening and got some stamps and tags out and had a lovely time making this.
It's actually made from one piece of 12 x 12 cardstock snipped in two places and then folded up with a ribbon round that ties at the front.

Our headteacher at school is leaving after 22 years - I am responsible for making the scrapbook to commemorate that. I have had some help at the beginning but with only 4 days until we give her the book I have spent most of the weekend working on it.
We go on holiday soon but I will try to schedule some posts for while I am away, once again apologies for my complete failure to blog recently!
