Guess who's off to Ascot

Off to the Races Card Clare Charvill Graphic 45

Happy Friday to you and roll on the weekend :-) I've had a lovely week celebrating my birthday and creating this weekends double workshop project from those gorgeous 'Off to the Races' collection by G45.  I was down by Cheltenham Race Course last night and Harry tells me he's got himself a job and is off to work at Ascot Race Course tomorrow. Not sure he'll get time for a flutter on the 'orses though!  I have happy memories of going to the races with my Grandma when I was small, she loved a flutter on the horses and the dogs too.  From the papers I didn't use I created this really simple montage, mounting the figures on foam pads for a 3D effect and think it may be the cover of a scrapbook............ am musing over some ideas.  
After what panned out to be a fun but ridiculously hectic week I'm off down to Scotch Lodge Farm tomorrow for day one of our two day Graphic 45 'Be Lucky' album workshop. Looking forward to seeing you there bright and early for a 9am start!!!!!!!! if you're coming. Bags are packed and I'm just tidying up some last minute things before finishing work for the day and sitting down to eat tea which is almost ready :-) 
Judy, have a fabulous Birthday if I don t get to catch up with you before and have a great day
Enjoy your weekend everyone, lets hope it's not a wet one and look forward to catching up with you on Monday .........   Halloween ...................   ta ta 'till then :-) 


  1. I love this! I live not too far from Ascot but I've never been to the races there. I suspect it isn't as elegant as this now though

  2. Belated Hppy Birthday Wishes Clare . Wish I was at Scotch Lodge Farm this weekend but maybe next year. We've just done an amazing 19 week ,14,500 klm trip doing half of Australia in our caravan . No scrapping at Allan! Love those papers but haven't seen them here yet. Love Bev.

  3. Oh thank you for the sweet birthday wishes Clare!! I can't see the photos on here of what you have done. Everything else is fine, oh well maybe it will self heal, lol!!!! Have a lovely weekend at Scotch Lodge Farm, wish I could be there I could use a holiday!!!

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
