oops, that's a long time ago since I've been here. It'll take me a while to figure out how it all worked. 

 decided to take part in an SU colour challenge set by the lovely Sam Mc Donald's colour challenge . ( she's also known as Pootles) The colours this time were Whisper White -Basic Grey- Emerald Green and Wisteria Wonder. I don't know what happened to the colours the grey looks more like brown here and that's the only SU stamping pad I had from those 3 .

Don't ask me why the font has changed...I cannot get it back to the default. grrr.

and made another layout

of course with Anna Aspnes goodies

This is the one and only photo we have of my mum as a child 

been busy knitting

another Aran jersey as I got fed up with my own long one . It's just about finished now and I don't want to see another diagonal square any more.
This one was done in a few evenings

I know it will be too big for the recipient but he can grow into it, better too big than too small.

The next one is on the needles already this time in denim blue but with a different aran pattern in the middle.

a few more layouts

this one was done  with a photo from Eva van Beers who was so kind to let me "borrow" latest shots.

it was blended into a dark paper from Anna Aspnes new Art Play Palette Capture 

a photo of my parents back in the 1950's 

and another one with Capture.  Photo with poem is from the Dutch Alzheimers Society

look at this- I used pink voluntary.

Those who know me know how much I like (not) pink but may be having a granddaughter is changing the aversion?
Made with all Anna Aspnes goodies available at Oscraps

I've got a new coat on

hurray  ...... at last.
Remember my post back in April about winning a 3 months guest spot on Anna Aspnes Team ?
Due to ill health this was postponed several times but as I have all treatment behind me now I can plan my life again .
She's my all time favourite designer , so talented and arty and willing to share her talents through excellent tutorials and  the team is brilliant as well.
 I'm sure my bank manager will appreciate a break in the outgoings too.
