I can only pick one fault with this page, in my hazy state of mind I stamped the wrong date for the picture, but I was only a day out. This picture was taken at my sons 6th birthday party this year & my other dogs birthday is the day before my sons, so instead of stamping the 11th I stamped the 10th but never mind.
Lets hope I can get more time to scrap without having to feel ill & lose sleep to do so! I am hoping for this cold to pass as soon as possible. I didn't realise how bad I had got until my darling husband compared sharing our bed with me to sleeping with Darth Vader!
Happy scrapping folks & thank you for stopping by!

And here is my complete page. I will be honest I did stray off the beaten track a little from the sketch. I didn't refer to it until I was finished & that was when I realised the circle in the sketch is a full circle. Unlike my page which I have only used the bottom half.
Thank you for stopping by & watch this space. I still have quite a bit of my kit left to work with & already have some ideas for cards to use up some of those smaller scraps which I hate to put in the bin, but don't have space to store either. Also I feel a couple of girly pages coming on. Now the question is where can I find a girl to scrap. I think it's time to call up big brother & hassle him pics of my darling niece.
Until next time keep on scrapping

STEP 3: Next I cut the opening to my balloon to match the size of my yoghurt pot. I also painted the bottom half of my balloon using Ranger acrylic paint. (Colour: Pool)
STEP 4: Time to get your strings in place. I lay my strings over the balloon then added some PVA glue to the top to hold them in place. I cut 1 string a lot longer than the others & tied a knot in it. This is the string used for hanging. You can also secure them in place using tape. I also covered this top area with a circle of patterned paper when finished.
STEP 5: Time to decorate. Take your patterned paper & cut 2 strips approximately an inch wide. The size of your balloon will decide how much paper strip you will need. I used 2 12in strips & a small 4in strip to get right round my balloon.
And here is my finished balloon. I love how cute it looks!
Thanks for stopping by, if you have any questions just ask & I will get back to you ASAP.

We all worked hard making costumes & it all came together perfectly when a friend offered some Dr Who props to adorn our float. So not only did we have lots of characters spanning the decades of this awesome TV show we also had a very authentic Tardis, Dalek & K-9!
