back again

well the half term here not much crafting has been done. I did get round to making mothers day cards and a birthday card for my mum. plus 2 money wallets for my niece and nephew who turned 15  this month.
After being inspired by the paperarsty project life page I did in the previous post with JOFY stamps  (and I won a set of stamps on there blog) I decided to give another project life page a try
This time I used crate paper DIY papers, along side some MME chalk board frames. my newly purchase chevron punch from stampin up, a papertrey ink die and a wood veneer embellishment.
 
 

the only saving grace about this month is it was my annual trip to Alexandra Palace (AP) for the big stamp and scrap booking show. My good crafting friend Janina drives us there, Liz  makes us laugh and Emma and I sit in the back, like a couple of children giggling or falling asleep. I have to say I wasn't feeling my best, tired after a late night at work, back pain after lifting little man on to a trampoline and my hay fever playing up. Any way I made a list and got most of what I wanted plus some extras. Card stock from Anna Marie Designs. some junkyard findings by Prima, metal fastenings from the MDF man, Paperartsy goodies. dies from Sammuel Taylors, antiquing cream demoed by Andy Skinner, Project life bits, and stamps from inkylicious. I was totally spent out , well it was my birthday money
