Just add ink#69

So i wanted to step outside the square for this challenge and do something that i have never done before. A scrapbook page. My Friend Katie had a little crafty get together on Sunday and i had a project in mind to do a page as a keepsake for my Bestie who had a little girl last Monday and it just so happens that it would fit with this weeks Just add ink challenge to Just add Fussy cutting
My photos havent turned out very this week so the colour turned out really crappy.
I also used for the first time rub ons, i was afraid that they would not rub on to the page so i rubbed them on card stock first and them cut them out. I then poped the page into a frame for them to hang up in there nursery
till next time

i'm back

Hi guys,
this is just a quick post just to let you all know that i am well (and still alive)
My husband and i had a fantastic time in the states for most of April but unfortunately its been really hard for me to have to come back to the normal every day life. I had little trouble with the jet lag on the way back from the US and then i went back to work to find everyone sick with coughs and colds and as you do in an office is share everything including your germs and i have been struggling with a virus for the last two weeks .
i am hoping to be back blogging and entering challenges in the next few weeks but at the moment i am probably going to take a few more weeks away from the card making part of my life while i get better
