Good evening and hope you are all well. Firstly I must say a big 'Hello' to our 3 new followers....Thank you so much for joining our happy little band, do come in and make yourselves at home...

Today it is a quick post from me, I had a busy weekend with workshops on Saturday at C.J. CardCrafts in Edgeley (I always enjoy the lovely crafters here and Glynis makes me feel so welcome..) then on Sunday Karl and I took Tess for a walk in Dunham Massey....some 3 hours later we needed that cup of tea.....and Tess snored all afternoon...

Here is a scrapbook page that I made for the last Clarity tv show.

I used the new Clarity Journaling set of stamps and the words are from the word chains....

The Journalling set is just brilliant for backgrounds and over stamping on patterned paper...

The photos are of Tess as a puppy....(some 5 years ago) our boys (a couple of years ago...oh, they are now 25 and 23) and a family photo at one of those fancy dress family parties....(and no....don't look at it to closely....thanks...)

I have another busy week ahead with magazine work to do and samples for the next Clarity will love the new stamps and stencils...I would love to tell you what they are.....but alas can do....

Also need to get my thinking cap on ready for Clarity Cumbria on the 5th looking forward to it...only a couple of spaces left too.....yah....

Enjoy your week all.....thanks for popping in...

Take care and call back soon,

Much love and hugs.

  1. Hi Jo. Great page and those Clarity word border stamps are fab, Barbara was showing us them at GNPE.
    One of my Workshop girls saw your Sister (she thinks it was) on the Craft stall in the Barrow Market last weekend, she was promoting your Cumbria Clarity Workshop...We are all desperate to come, the girls at the meet up today were very interested (there are 12 of us, but not sure who will be able to come) but me and Angie are a yes.
    Angie gets back from Canada mid May so we hope to come after then.
    Hope all goes well on the first one, please let me know. Debbiex

  9. Good afternoon, Jo. Thanks for your visit and I am glad you enjoyed it. We are supposed to do short posts in the Wednesday, but I do have a tendency to ramble on a bit when I have a keyboard to hand. I had another Clarity parcel yesterday with the masks and stencils I didn't get at the show. Once this major clear up is over this weekend, I might get the chance to really dig in up in my room. thanks for helping to make the NEC so memorable. xx Maggie
