Treasure the Memories

Afternoon Everyone
I hope that you have all had a lovely Easter.
I had a quick trip round blogland yesterday and was bizarrely heartened to see that I was not alone in feeling that I had lost my mojo, many of you are obviously feeling the same.
Despite the glorious weather we have been having (although we did get some thunder rumble around us on Sunday afternoon) I have been finding it hard to get motivated.
Maybe its because I'm under time pressure for TV work again - who knows.
Anyway I thought that I would share some more of the frames that I finished after the class at Lavender Lane the other week.
This first one is made using a cuttlebugged design. This picture of my dear Dad was taken many years ago. The young lady in the picture, my niece Lauren, will be 16 this year!!! Wasn't she cute? She will probably never talk to me again now for posting this :)
The flowers are hand made by yours truly, all except the white ones that is.
This one uses the Magenta Frame I got from Sir Stampalot. I have stamped and embossed it onto Bazzil card stock and then painted the swirls with bleach.
The flowers this time are all shop bought. They are from my stash which I added to at Ally Pally. All the frames have a few gems on them, but I'm not sure that they show up very well.

This blue frame has been made in exactly the same way as the one above, only this time I have coloured the swirls using a white Gelly roll glaze pen.
The flowers here are a mixture of shop bought and hand made.
My Granddaughter Saskia loves checking out the blog to see pictures of her and her twin brother Ciaran. As soon as I open the computer she wants to see them, even though the originals are on display on a shelf in my room. The modern generation and their technology lol.
I've been at work at the garage again today. It's been so busy, they have been queueing out the doors for most of the day.
We are planning a BBQ this evening just like the rest of England, so that will probably be the kiss of death to the weather.
Have a great evening.
Love and hugs

PS - Some of the cards that I am making are for Hobby Art's latest TV shows on Create and Craft channel 671. Tomorrow (Tuesday 26th) at 5pm and then two shows on Wednesday 27th at 8am and 1pm.
Don't forget to tune in, and remember you can always watch it on your computer if all else fails.


  1. Hi Kim
    These are all just gorgeous, love the turquoise frame especially, with your Dad and niece, just works so beautifully,but so are the others!
    Know what you mean about your mojo, mine went a while ago and it hasn't come back yet either!
    I can just sit and look at my stuff and nothing happens. Don't know why though. Think if you are under pressure to do something, it doesn't help.
    Hope you have a lovely barbecue, don't think you'll put the kiss of death on the weather, I'm feeling like a wet rag at the mo!
    Take care
    Debs xx

  2. Gorgeous frames Kim, I feel the same at the minute, really struggling with my cards.
    Hopefully it will come back or I'll be busy on ebay selling my stash :-(
