bad blogger

Well so much for blogging every day this year, missed 2 this week already!
To be honest I've just been really down lately so not really been good 'blogging company'. Just been bad news after bad news, with grandads health not being the best, Marks health getting worse and Camerons problems with the girl at school escalating to INSANE levels its been feeling very overwhelming and depressing. But not to dwell on that thought I'd share some more retreat work :)
This was ifa's class which involved embossing. I'd tried this before and it went very wrong so was surprised how nice these turned out :) I think I must have had cheap products or else I just did it wrong somehow lol. We stamped the doilies in clear ink then embossed them with coloured powder. Was strangly relaxing watching the powders melt, that might just be me though lol.

My layout is a little different as Ifas had a badge, hanging twine and more stickers. I wasn't a fan of the badge though so used this little picture of sleeping beauty which went well with my title :) I also used this sticker from my goodie as the photo is of Caitlin in my wedding dress so went well too :)

Bit different from a layout this is a card I made as a make and take. I always struggle when doing boys cards but I think this minus the butterfly can be quite a boyish design :)

Well nothing big planned tomorrow, which is good as by the looks of things we're going to be snowed in! Seriously how crazy is this weather!!


  1. Hope things start to improve for you Gemma x

  2. Sorry to hear you having such a rough time at the moment.

    That is a lovely layout and a beautiful photo of Caitlin x

  3. I think that layout is lovely - I don't think I would have thought that embossing on a doily would have worked, but it turned out really well. Love that card - I put buttons or stars on instead for a boy card. Hope your luck picks up soon! x

  4. hope things feel a little better soon. Really enjoyed my little gander around your blog.
    love that layout, brilliant photo too


Thanks for your comments. :)
