Oh computer, how I missed you.

Being with out a computer was to put it mildly absolutely horrible. It makes me realise just how much I rely on this little instrument for contact with the world outside my own little one. It does not seem that long ago that a computer held no interest for me at all. Back in the days when there was one lonely computer in the back of the maths classroom at my high school, probably one of the few in the entire school. I remember the teacher using it as a reward for those who finished their work early but with an antiquated form of space invaders and the net a thing of the future it held little appeal to me. Oh how far we've all come. Any way enough of my computer musings I am here to share a few layouts, one recent, two before Christmas and one oldy from 2005 which was an 8x8 I found in an old album and have just now put onto a piece of background card to make it 12x12. I had an hour and a half last night where #1 son was working, #s 2 and 4 where at the pictures and #2 was at a friends place. I ignored the dishes and went into my little nook to create this layout of Baby Xave. PP is 3 bugs in a rug, cardstock is bazzill flower is hero arts(love the texture of these) and the back ground stamping is done with a rollergraph (dots and spots or something like that) and embossing ink. I didn't think it showed out enough so I pulled out my very neglected chalks and rubbed it over with a green just a tiny bit deeper than the card, was much happier with the result.

Blogger has loaded these photos back the front, this one was meant to be under the LO below. Just a close up of the shrink plastic heart, I love this stuff', it's another thing that sat in my stash for years unused that I have found a new love for. Paper is by Kaiser, card by bazzill and background stamp is by PTI stamped with versa mark.




This is the old 2005 layout I put on a piece of 12 inch card. I stamped the background with a hero arts stamp and distress ink(crookedly if your mean enough to look that closely,lol) The music notes are deluxe designs, not even sure if they exist anymore back ground stamps are hero arts.



One of my darling taken at the Adelaide zoo last year, scrapped just before Christmas.
