Just Because....

FINALLY!!  I have been locked out of my blog!! I don't know what has happened, but a certain son of mine has used my computer and changed something on Google and it is all linked up to his password! grrr and of course, he doesn't want to give his mummy his password. Will have to sort that out toot sweet!
I have been playing with my HERO ARTS NEON INKS  oh yeah, they are fabulous!! such beautiful colours and yes I have every colour *blush*
Not too happy with the pic here as the card is so much more vibrant IRL.

Up Up and Away

Hi there! We have school holidays here and I  LOVE ♥ THEM!  I love the quiet mornings as NO ONE wakes early in this house!  I have set myself a few tasks and thankfully, they are being achieved!!! 
Non crafting ones sadly.....  but if everything goes to plan, I will have next week!!

I did, however, have a little spare time to play...... I wanted to try this technique I have been seeing a lot around blog town.  Clouds.  Such a simple technique and looks really effective.  I am loving the
re-emergence of vellum (thank you Jennifer McGuire!!)  Just a tip though, I found stazon the best product to stop smudging (thank goodness I have spare vellum......lol)

You can find all the details and products used at Scrapbook Boutique which, by the way, has a BRAND NEW LOOK!! and a sale to boot!
