Gramophone No 2

In January 2010 I bought these 2 gramophones from a Charity shop in Melville. The 1st one I did was in a fair condition, but this one was in a very bad condition. So on Wednesday I spent the day fixing the gramophone. I'm very please with the way it turned out.

#3 June Saturday Sketch

This is # 3 June sketch over at KaiserCraft


June_Santorini


Here is my take on the sketch - Boys will be boys


Saturday Sketch # 3 June


For this layout I used the KaiserCraft Attitude Collection.


Kruz found this little guy in the garden on Fathers day (17-06-2012) & boy did we have a argument because he wanted to keep him. Eventually I convinced him to put him in the tree.

Wagendrift Dam (Enmarc DT Pack)

Hubby offered to help take a van full of doves to Mooi River for a race. We left on Friday night at about 6:50pm, collected all the doves from different areas & then the road trip began. This is something I hope he never does again!!! It was a very long 24 hours without sleep!!! The only thing I'm happy about was this photo I got of Wagendrift Dam on the way back home.

My Coffee Table

I bought this coffee table from a charity shop in JHB a few years ago & it was a bargain. So this weekend I decided to redo the table.


Table No2


I painted the table with black tokreen & then used old pictures that I have collected for the table top. I used modge podge to stick down my pictures & then gave it 3 coats of clear tokreen. I was not sure about using these pictures, but I'm glad I did.

Week 217

Here is this weeks sketch at Nuts About Sketches


217 - 1 Due June 10


I used the left side of the sketch for my layout - Thompson Who?


217 Left Side Canica


On the back of the 1 picture someone wrote Thompson & that's how I came up with me title. There is something else written on the back but no one can read it???


 These pictures have "The Star Johannesburg Copyrighted Not For Publication" stamped on the back of them.  So I decided to do a single page layout so that I can stick one of them down & the other I made a pocket for.


217 Canica Photo


217 Canica tab


Its such a pitty that I have no more info on these pictures, but somehow this is family. I have almost finished my second album of all the old family photos & will share more of my layouts in the weeks to come because I have decided that I'm going to use the Nuts About Sketches, sketches for all the old family photos.

Design Team Challenge 137 @

Let's Scrap


Hello there!


I wish you all a happy mid-year; time sure flies, huh! I am so thrilled to bring you my challenge beginning today and you have approximately two weeks to complete your creation. Sounds easy I know! Yet I’m giving you some choices, so it is time to dig into your stash!


Rule 1: Select only 3 items from the 6 items listed in the list below


Rule 2: Incorporate the 3 items on your layout


Rule 3: Must use only Let’s Scrap sketch


Rule 4: Can make single page layout or double page layout


The List:


1. Flowers


2.Buttons / Brads / Bling / Rhinestone


3. Lace / Ribbons / Strings / Floss


4. Butterflies / Dragonflies / Beatles


5. Paper clips / Wooden-pegs / Staples


6.Chipboards


 


NOTE: You may design your layout to your heart content; you can use punches/die cuts/art/tons of photos/etc but you must have 3 items chosen from the list. For example:-If you pick #1 - you can either have one flower or cluster of flowers and they’re counted as 1 item.If you pick #2 – you can only choose one stuff (let’s say you choose brads, you can’t use the rest listed in #2).


REMEMBER the main rule is ONLY 3 STUFFS…..NO MORE…..NO LESS!!!
