Today I met a new crafty friend. Jodie is a good friend of my friend Barb. It was Jodie's birthday today so to celebrate we went out to Jodies brand spanking new house at Inman Valley. Such a gorgeous house full of fancy gadgets.
I took along my latest order from ScrapTherapy full of new My Minds Eye Quite Contrary Little Boy Blue and Jack & Jill papers and embellies to play with.
Here's a pic of the stuff I received.
This pics a little blurry sorry.
Here are the layouts I made. Well I nearly made. I completed the first one, but had forgotten some bits for the second one so finished it off when I got home.
First LO is for ScrapTherapy's Monthly Colour Challenge. The colours for this month were Kraft, Chocolate, Olive and Rain. I struggled a little with adding rain in. It's not too bad, but think I could have done better. Love this pic though.
The second LO is for the Sketch Challenge at Scrapbook Savvy this month. I handmade the stitched heart for this one.
I also made this birthday card for Jodie. I'll enter it in the Surprise Challenge over at ScrapTherapy. We had to use up the scraps that were on our desk to make a card. Well being a tidy scrapper my desk was clear. So I got out my leftovers from my Nanna's Garden LO.
We had a lovely day. Jodies daughter Summer enjoyed playing with all the stamps and punches. While Ethan had a ball with Jodies son Caydens trucks and cars. Eli just chilled as usual. We enjoyed a lunch of vegie quiche and choccy brownies, mmmmmm.
My good friends Barb and Sue.
We are going to try and make this day a regular thing. Can't wait to see what we do next time!
