Aaaargh - it's self-portrait Saturday!!


Hello hello, not bad going, three days blogging on the trot!! Well - I am well and truly stumped for inspiration at the moment - I have a couple of things I have to get sorted for my Ma's 50th birthday next week, and I could do with getting em done ASAP!! Will get one finished tonight I think - cant post it though until nearer the time in case she spies it!!

I have done the HS:MS photo prompt - today it's Self Portrait Saturday - aaargh! Took a few photos, and managed to look incredibly stooopid and cheesy in all - so apologies for the dodgy shot folks - photographing myself is definintely not on my top 100 favourite things to do list!! But it has forced me to work outside my comfort zone, which cant be bad can it???
There it is, yuk! Its going to be interesting to see what tomorrows is!

Entered this month's house challenge on UKS - the theme is Countryside/Harvest. The vote is real close - I was in joint first for a bit, then a small flurry of voters, and Im in second now, but hey ho!! Some fabulous entries, mine was a ribbon n roll book that I made with a kit from Scrapdragon - really enjoyed doing it and the kit was lovely - plenty with it, and a cool idea I hadnt seen or heard of before!!















The above is my ribbon and roll book - hope you like it! Instructions are on UKS and can be found in the summer crop section I think! I was just chatting with Mrs B over on UKS, in our Charli's Angels team thread - and we were talking about dreams. She had a strange dream with me in it, and I had a really weird dream too - there was a big hairy fruit eating mammoth in it. No, I am not on any prescription medication (yet) before you ask.

You are so right, it really does force you to work outside your comfort zone. I don't quite know if I can face seeing myself in my blog every week though, cringe!

Love your hair :-)

he he my hair is red IRL - i prefer the blue though - i wonder if they have that very same colour in a bottle?!? My son is a red head as well - i love it but i dont know if he will when he's older - i took a fair bit of stick for it growing up!
