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.

Been drawing to relax this evening after coming home from visiting my mum, a long drive, so I did another background and wanted it to look sort of African, I was inspired by my Aunty's drawing she did back in 2002 of an African lady. I think the background will be a darker orange next time, perhaps I'll use the Gelli plate and make it more vibrant. The little snail was this month's shell stamp from Clarity stamps, I thought I'd turn it into a snail firstly.
