Olympic Fever

I think every one here would agree that the whole country was gripped by Olympic fever.  We certainly were.  The boys took a trip down to the east end and had a great time watching the athletics. They were  completely wowed by the size of the stadium, and the noise of every one cheering Mo Farah on to win.  Way to go Mo.
It's a real rarity these days to get a picture of my little darlings together but here they are feeling the heat of the Olympic flames some 20 metres away from their seats. 

A day they will always remember


  1. Hiya Clare.
    I don't know if you got my E Mail. I sent you one after the Sunday Scrappers Show, I did send one into the show too, but they were having problems and I am not on Facebook.
    You were great on C&C and the Teresa Collins products were gorgeous. I love your sytle, just me, and I saw yor boys photo that day. Hope the Olympics were good, I loved every minute of it.
    Lovely to see you on tv again.

  2. Handsome boys Clare! My Hubby & I are down in Warwickshire this weekend for the Gaydon BMW Show. I will be paying a second visit to Pink Tulip Creations. I paid my first visit in July on the way to Silverstone(another car show!;-). What a welcome we received, & what an Aladdin's cave the shop is! Thank you for recommending it.

    Take care
    Linda Jones

  3. That is just so COOL!!!! A memory that will last forever! Our boys are 22, 23, and 24. You picture was so touching because you got me thinking that I don't know when I will have two much less all three of them together. Life is a treasure.

What a week!

IndigoBlu Tags  Happy Friday everyone If your a follower of mine you 'll know that I've been off work for a while following an op, but my life as a lady of leisure came to an end this week when I returned to the world of totally british beautiful fast fast cars and ones that go anywhere!!  I had a wonderful welcome back from my colleagues so thanks to everyone for making my first day as good as it was.  I thought I'd feel like the new girl, not able to remember anything, but just like riding a bike it all came flooding back :-) Now I feel like I've not been away lol!!!    I cant deny I'm not pleased its the weekend and I've got time to re charge my batteries before attempting another 5 days on the trot :-)  As I've just joined the IndigoBlu team official this week I thought I'd share a couple of tags with you made with stamps from the  Pomp and Pageantry and Grand Tour 1 plates and the ledger background which I really love.  Tag 1 IndigoBlu

Launching the File Folder......

Hi everyone, it's Friday and launch day for our latest project - the File Folder.  I had loads of fun making the samples altered here in two gorgeous paper collections to give two totally different looks to the same File Folder Cover Set.  .   Measuring 10" x 7 1/4 x 2" the sturdy File Folder Cover set is laser cut from 3mm MDF, has a magnetic closure inset into the covers, opens top reveal the option to add a noticeboard section on the inside cover and a ring binder that holds four layered pages. These can be made with or without pockets and pull out photo mats.  I've added a tuck spot option for the pages too. These allow you to slot pictures onto the pages without sticking them down. That way you can always see the beautiful papers you've chosen to decorate your pages in, like  like the Mad Hatter below.  I added black clips into the samples too to hold more pics and ephemera on the pages.   and right in the centre there's an acetate waterfall se
