suescraftstuff:- I try to put all sorts of things into order in a scrapbook. mainly family. I Started scrapbooking in 2009 and now am totally addicted. Just recently I started making a few cards, mainly for friends and family, I really enjoy doing this, but there is such a lot more to learn. currently I am learning to use promarkers, they're fantastic!!... I have a cricut cutting machine, but like to embellish with different mediums rather than just the cricut cutouts. I love lace and flowers, also distressing and embossing. This is just one of my many hobbies I've had over the years, a big part of it was woodcraft and painting.The woodcraft bit I got from my dad, him and my mum are my all time favourite people, my dad was so kind and clever, dad, I miss you, because of him I still dabble in the woodwork a bit too. But I am loving putting all my photo's into a scrapbook, and lately making cards, to keep and remember everone in a much more interesting way than a normal photo album .hopefully it will be passed on in later years.

Potato Hawk

A picture drawn by my daughter Amy, It's for a friend of hers who's father used this very same thing, 2 potatoes, with sticks for legs and screws for eyes,  feathers for wings and a tail, to scare away unwanted birds from his garden. His son called it a potato hawk. So here we have it. I coloured the sketch in for her with Letraset promarkers and made it into a birthday card for her to give to him. I think he'll be chuffed, don't you?

A Picture for Eloise's room

I found this idea on a web page, a little different, but it inspired me to do a similar thing for my grandaughter's wall. It's just a whole load of left over buttons I have, double-sided taped to the letter 'E' and the spaces that the buttons cannot cover were covere with brads, flat backed pearls and at the very last to fill in all the smallest spaces, seed beads.
