Smash Your Stash

 Morning and as it's the last Saturday of the month it's time for the Smash Your Stash challenge with Vicki who makes brilliant journal pages so hope you will check her post too.

The challenge this month was papers/kit/collection(decorative papers or kits) well I don't have any kits but plenty of strips of papers so actually got rid of quite a few lol and using my Pink Pig journal.

The background was distress inked and Shattering stamp from AALL&Create,different strips added and the little square with the circle was cut off the strip I used,the archway stamped image was an ATC I found which I had never used so added that and found a "This is the way to go" sentiment on some Graphic 45 oddments,the same with the sentiment on the bottom too.

Son Matthew and partner Rosie were going to get Married at Robin Hoods Bay next year-but after been having tests a couple of years ago and finding out she couldn't have children then a couple of years covid-losing their studio and flat decided to make it later this year and just family at Beverley register office-rang for details and was given a short date for 30th next month so panic stations here at the moment.

Rosie and her Mum went shopping Thursday and got the most beautiful wedding dress and her shoes so one thing sorted!

WELCOME TO MY NEW FOLLOWER JO

Grandsons First Holy Communion

 It was our Grandsons first Holy Communion a couple of weeks ago and as we are not religious was unsure what to expect and had to google ideas for cards. I was gifted some  Cross rubber stamps so not sure whose they are.I also lost my pics when computer died so had to rely on Son sending me them.

I silver embossed the Cross and layered up with dies from The Works,Memory Box and Spellbinders,a couple of lines made on scoring board,dewdrops and peel off corners from stash.


The card I made for daughter Helen to give I embossed the Cross in gold layered with Crafters Companion and Spellbinders dies and a strip of gold paper from stash and added some gems I won at Creative Creases.

 
 
 
 
He was also 9yrs the following week so made him a card using a pic taken at his Communion. P,papers from The Works sentiment was computer generated from Dafont.


 
 
UPDATE ON JOHNS EYE---Went for a check up on Thursday and retina has started to detach again!!! Was home half an hour and hospital rang -they had a cancellation on Monday 8am so having another op to try and save his eye.
