Hello! After 3 delicious weeks touring America we are back home and slowly trying to get back into the swing of things. For me that means a mountain of washing, sorting, children’s taxi service and such LOL. However, I was finally able to find some time to get acquainted my craft room again! With the 3 week holiday and the end of term activities beforehand it must be over a month since I sat at my craft table! To say I was feeling a little rusty is an understatement LOL.
So I thought I’d take things slowly and start off with a tag for the latest Clearly Besotted Challenge – Seeing Spots. I always find a challenge helps to get the mojo going. I broke the seal on the new Home Sweet Home stamps and dies and picked out the polka dot house (so sweet) and added a hill cut from spotty paper to really make sure I hit the challenge theme LOL. I added in one of the lovely trees and a cute as can be cloud before stamping the sentiment up the side.
My photography skills were also feeling a bit rusty, my lens was playing up and while on holiday my laptop wiped itself three times :( I’m slowly getting my laptop back in order but am having difficulty getting my software programs reloaded including Photoshop Elements which I use to edit my pictures so please excuse the slightly off photos.
Right got to dash. It’s been lovely being back here in person rather than scheduled posts – they never feel the same somehow LOL.
