Cat on a Hot Tin Roof

Well not quite but it is a cat on a brick chimney in France. Well almost as its not  a real cat but one made of iron that has just been place there possibly to stop the birds from flying down??At any rate it fulfils this weeks CSI challenge which is here

and here is my interpretation:

in retrospect I should have put the photo more into the centre but I really wanted the stencilling and painting and chip to show so refused to move it. It doesn't look right but heh it'll do. (not said that for a long time).

better blogger

Yes well, in order to be a better blogger there has to be something to blog doesn't there? We had our 12 hour festive crop at the weekend. What an array of lovely food ranging from salmon and chicken with salads to cupcakes and donuts for lunch followed by chips and gravy in the evening. More eating than scrapping. We also treated ourselves to some new papers so that we all had the same range to scrap with. I managed 6 layouts two of which just need some tweaking. Here are the four that are finished:

The first one is for the Punky Scrap Rebels challenge here and uses their sketch. The photo is of a work of art that uses household bits and bobs to copy famous paintings.

 This one is of a Son et Lumière show projected onto Rouen cathedral depicting the passage of the impressionist era.

As he was waiting for me to finish the packing in Honfleur hubby decided to have a quick nap in the gardens of the hotel we were staying at. Fair game-who could resist taking a photo like this.

My niece has done some amateur modelling in her time so the title seemed apt. I took the photo ages ago when we spent the weekend together visiting Steven in Leamington.

I used the same paper range -Daily Grind for all the layouts.
I may even have the others to blog tomorrow. Who knows.

Bad blogger

Back in November at our crop it was my turn to set the class. I thought I'd go right out of our comfort zone and set a project rather than a layout so produced this:

The house itself was originally plain white but was painted and crackled and painted a bit more. All the products are Paperartsy including the stamping along the bottom.
