Warrington Crop Day

Today was crop day at Warrington, run by Sarah, Rebecca and Lianne. I had a productive day for me... as in I got 2 whole LOs done with 1/2 hour to spare!!!
Although I used the same papers on both LOs, and the photos were taken on the same day... they are 2 separate LOs... I decided this was the best option to reduce the amount of paper pushing time! The stripes on both LOs were created by stamping acrylic paint from a piece of corrugated card. The background paper is by Pink Paislee and is from Sarah'scards... I love it so much I had to buy another 4 sheets... just so I don't run out any time soon ;) I also used the crackle glaze again, although I need to play with this more to get the results that Sarah has... it's great stuff though, and at less than £3, you really do need to get some to play with.
And check out that number stamp down the left hand side of the 'screwed' LO... oh yeah, how cool is that! It came in the April Scarlet Lime kit, and there was a bit of doubt as to how well it would actually work... I am hooked, and think it will be making an appearance again soon.
I also used a wood grain Hambly overlay which my very good friend Jems kindly sent to me in a package full of goodies... thanks again Jems *wub* and it was fantastic actually speaking to you in real life. Keep an eye on that there post box of yours... you may be surprised with a 39 year old sized box sometime in the not so distant future... LOL!
The 'Dig It' LO was based on this fab sketch by Jems over at Scrapbook Star.

Whilst I was at the crop, Rob met my parents at Meadow Hall to do the 'passing of the baby'. They are having Harry this week, as he has been invited to a 1st birthday party down there, and of course he has to go. It does give us a week to devote to Oliver though, which he is really looking forward to. Tomorrow we are going to Gulliver's World. The last time we went Harry was only a little baby so someone always had to stay with him, but tomorrow we will all be able to join in.

On the topic of babies... a huge congratulations to team mate Nikki, on the safe arrival of Buttercup (aka Megan Elizabeth). She is beautiful:)

Two brilliant LOs. Its fascinating to see how you put them together. Much braver & more spontaneous than myself. I'm a control freak & need to know where everything goes before i bring the glue out :)
