Home Sweet Home Garden Box Clare Charvill Graphic 45
Brrrr!! it was a frosty frozen start to the day when I took Ols to work this morning but the clouds have cleared and the sun is out so things are looking promising for a really nice day.  It's that time of year when all of us fair weather gardeners get outside and start tidying and planting.  I thought I d' alter one of my This N' That boxes to keep my seeds, string and planter labels in but I think Harry had nabbed it.  Its full of golf balls lol!!  I've gone for green, yellow and red papers from the Home Sweet Home collection by Graphic 45 and love how all the papers work together.  

Here's a few more pics 


Have you been watching Poldark? I can't believe we're up to episode 3 and I haven't mentioned it.  I remember watching it with Mum back in the 70's and loved it then. I'm loving the remake and am now totally hooked on it second time around.  For those of you reading from outside of the UK the series is based on the novels by Winston Graham, and set in the rugged north Cornwall countryside. Here's a bit of then and now blog candy of Ross Poldark and his servant and from this coming week his wife Demelza.  Roll on Sunday , I can t wait .........!!

I've just got to hang out the washing and then get back to finishing off the project sheet for this weekends workshop.  Have a great day yourself and let's catch up again later in the week :-)

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
