Scrapping and other crafty bits

Probably the most annoying scissors in the world...





Good evening all! A bit later tonight. Was going to pop this up earlier but I thought I'd wait and let you have a peep at this latest CJ entry I have done. Its for the Another Stamp CJ hosted by 3DJean of UK scrappers. But anyway, first things first, back to the snip pic for today. These are my 'don't use if having a bad day' scissors. They wouldn't cut **** red hot. If anyone knows what I mean there :), don't know where the heck that saying comes from but there you go.


Busy day today - had playgroup this morning, which went pretty well - Shamus was incredibly well behaved! Twas t'other babe, who I look after who was 'tricky'. She was trying to show a small baby a shape cutter, but was getting a little too close to his head! Yikes.
Popped into Lancaster this avo to get some double sided sticky pads from the pound shop. A quid for 320 - you cant say fairer than that! Since I stopped working 'properly' (although I don't think I have ever worked so hard in my life lol) I have turned into Charl, the bargain hunter. Take a butchers at these shoes for example, on this entry I did in Monica's Shoes(passionflower over on UKS) CJ. 2 years BC (before child), when I was Charl, the weekend millionaire, I bought these shoes one night (about 4am actually, nothing like a bit of night shift delirium for getting me spending, I can tell you). Now I get them out, gaze at them lovingly and stroke them from time to time. I would never in a month of Sundays (?) consider spending so much on a pair of shoes. There's just no way. Just couldn't afford it!! So now I hunt around, and if I can save a good few quid, I'm there. I'm waffling and straying off the point probably lol but the pound shop has loads of good crafty bargains anyway, I think that was the moral of that story!Right a quick one before I beggar off then. This altered Circle Journal (CJ) I'm doing. I still don't know if my work is qualifying as altered but I'm giving it my best shot! I'm enjoying it because it is putting me out of my comfort zone, entirely. The stamp for this CJ, belonging to Veronica (or Godiva on UKS) is the fleur de lis stamp top left hand corner of the right page. I used the stamp around the edges of the page on the left too, to give a leafy type effect. The idea of this CJ is that you choose a stamp, and that stamp goes along with your CJ, to the 10 different people in your group, with you ending up with 10 different interpretations of the same stamp. I have seen the second entry in mine, by Annie, and it is absolutely fantastic. I cant wait to see it back with everyone's contributions in it! I can highly recommend having a blast at this CJ business - it is great. Anyway - here it is.......

Oky Doky then folks, TTFN and thanks for stopping by! Shall have a pop and see your blogs for a little bit, then I must get butt in gear and do some more course work, or it'll be coi-tuns fer me!
