Busy post today :) I don't do anything interesting for ages then I do lots at once! lol. Well while blog hopping I found this idea on a friends blog. (look I learned how to do links!)
I have recently been saying that there are so few cyber crops or challenges around for scrapbookers now compared to what there used to me. Seems much more geared to cardmakers or altered art and I miss it. So this is a great alternative :) Looking through the list some will be easy and others not so much, pity I didn't find it earlier as I could have done loads of them at Disney.
So my first one, 2. Theater for performing arts (not a movie theater) This is the Demontfort Hall in Leicester :) And last night we went to see JImmy Carr here.

1. Open air market
2. Theater for performing arts (not a movie theater)
3. City Hall, Capitol or other similar civic building
4. Airplane
5. A sunset
6. Someone or something taking a nap
7. A sign that is intentionally or unintentionally funny
8. A tower
9. A photo with someone or something that is clearly out of place or doesn't belong
10. A bench that is outside
11. An animal in a zoo, aquarium, nature preserve, etc.
12. A cloud in the shape of something (please specify what you see)
13. A fence
14. A stained glass object or a mosaic
15. A fire truck or police car
16. A windmill
17. Candle(s)
18. Your local pub/bar, coffee house or tea shop
19. A fisherman
20. A dinosaur
21. A photograph of you with an artistic tool or craft supply (you cannot substitute for this item)
Bonus/substitute items. If you find any of the above items too difficult, feel free to substitute either (or both) of these items. You can substitute up to two items, but you cannot substitute Item #21:
A person wearing an outfit (or item of clothing) that symbolizes your country
A sundial
I was worried about going to Jimmy Carr as hes known for picking on people and we were quite near the front. but OMG it was amazing! There were plenty of people shouting out and heckling him so he didn't really pick on anyone, he was so funny and really nice. Afterward you could queue to meet him and get an autograph. By this point however I was feeling really ill again so a member of staff very kindly waited with Mark while I went to get some fresh air. Bless him he was so pleased when he came out :) Rather than just sign our tickets and send him on Jimmy actually sat and chatted with him for a bit, asking if he was ok and making jokes with him. I'm always so grateful to people who take time out for Mark and give him a hand so I was really grateful to Jimmy Carr and the staff there, will be making a point to go back :)

So back to WOYWW. First time I've had anything on my workdesk for a while :) The candle holder is part of a project I can't tell you about it is yet, but if it turns out ok I'll share the end result once its done :)

As well as thats theres lots of other 'works in progress' on the rug. I've got back into crafting lately which is good as I certainly have plenty to use up! It also got me thinking about scrapping style. I saw a post on UKS a while ago asking what your scrapping style was, if I'm honest I don't think I have one, but if I could pick one I'd say 'deliberate'. A lot of my friends, Lesley, Carin, Jess (lots others but don't have blogs lol) do what I call deliberate layouts, where theres lots of inking, misting and lots of little elements which go together and look great. See now when I try it it tends to look more like someone sneezed scrapping supplies on a sheet of paper, while theres looks deliberte and planned, see where I got the name from lol. Here links to thier blogs so you can see what I mean :)
Well we have 'Silver linings playbook' to watch tonight. I'm not sure if I'll enjoy it or not, didn't look too good but after all the hype I thought I'd give it a go :)


  1. ah I was thinking of you at the gig, so glad you managed to get, that the staff were friendly that you weren't subjected to the 'being picked on' bit and that Jimmy Carr was not only a good entertainer and fun to watch but a genuinely nice guy - fabulous stuff!

    Will be interested to see what you manage to do with the candle holder, haven't done anything altered for a bit, going through a scrapbook phase again!

  2. You learned to link - and to my blog too!!!
    Glad you enjoyed Jimmy Carr and you started the Scavenger Hunt, it's a great way to fill in days when I haven't got a layout to blog!!!


Thanks for your comments. :)
