One day when I was waiting for the phone to ring . . .

It was a slightly stressful day a few weeks ago, we were about to embark on making an offer on another house (we've since exchanged contracts and are aiming to move before Christmas! hysterical shriek of laughter!), and I was wandering around the house for half the day, both phones in hand, waiting for the Real Estate agent to ring me back.  I found it hard to settle into anything productive, and the one thing I really wanted to do - getting up the ladder with the power tools - was really not an option!  Eventually, I found myself in the craft room. At last! Something I could settle into.

First up I finished this page, which came together pretty quickly as the main elements had been on my desk for a week or two:

I inked the thickers to get a shade closer to the other elements on my page, which fits in nicely with Challenge #2 at the Counterfeit Kit Challenge, to alter the colour of something on your page.

Next up, I started a page for the Scrap the Boys challenge of "Man's Best Friend".  I took the literal approach and scrapped an old photo of Angus with our friend's puppy.

At the same time, I took the Kraft It Up challenge to use Wood Veneers.

Well thanks for stopping by, I don't think there'll be too much more action on this little blog over the next month or so, but I've still got plenty of goodies in my October Counterfeit Kit, "packing boxes", so you never know . . .


  1. great job! I'm amazed you had time to do this with being so busy!

  2. Yummy pages! Nice tweak of your letters.
    Feel so bad every time you post about your house hunt :~(

  3. The things you find out from the internet! Congrats on the house, and 2 great looking pages. That yellow jumper has had a bit of a workout! I think it's all worn out now.

  4. They are wonderful pages and Congrats on the new house!

  5. Thanks for joining us at KIU! (For future reference, your KIU entry can only be used for our challenge) Good luck with the move and hope to see you again once things have settled down for you!

  6. Great pages! I love the idea of inking Thickers to make them match your projects - I'll have to remember that trick for future layouts.

  7. Nice pages!!!
    Love the colours and design for the STB challenge! Great photo too :)
    Thanks for sharing with us at STB
