make yourself comfy this may take some time LOL

i've finally got round to taking photos of all the lo's i've done recently so i thought i would share them all on here rather than trying to remember to put them all on uks 3 at a time LOL actually there is one i can't share with you quite yet as it's my example for the weekly challenge my team is setting over on uks this month sometime, will have to keep you in suspenders for that one LOL

this first one is my go at the weekly challenge set by jo bee, it had to be a 6x4 photo, use punches and have some history to it, so i used this photo of the peony rose in the garden, one of only two plants we still have left in the garden that were planted by my mam before her death, 25 years ago. it's a beauty and flowers better and better every year :-) this one is last weeks challenge over on uks set by the crafty magpies, the title is because you had to use a quote as part of the challenge and i found this on one of my embellishments :-) the swans were on windermere and i love the light on the water in this one :-)this next one is one of my faves of the lot, it's a sketch challenge that the bloss of our team (yes that's her title as her uks username is heatherblossom LOL) puts up every monday, i don't get a chance to do them very often as i don't take my lappy upstairs but i loved this one :-) pp's are crate paper and the photo was taken at ambleside in the lakes, we had this photo taken in the photo booth at the world of beatrix potter in windermere, thanks to suzy for using her phone to find out the correct spelling of mr mcgregor :-)another one of ambleside, this time from the windermere lake cruise, this is a scraplift of rachel w's lo in the dt booklet that came with the sarahs cards kit i used to make the lo :-)this one was using an old sarahs cards kit and is of derwent water, we had planned to go on a trip on the boat you can see but when we got there it wasn't going due to "mechanical problems", when we rang to book on the trip two days later it turned out the "mechanical problems" were actually someone had forgot to renew the boats cruising liscence LOL this next one is of me and dad on the ullswater cruise, i wanted to call this one f***ing freezing cos i was LOL but the ladies at the frozen north crop decided BRRRR! would be a more polite title LOL there's a bit of a story to this one, the photo was taken at thirlmere, where there is a view point to visit, i set off along the disabled path figuring it would be a nice flat walk which it was until it turned into a scramble up a rock face LOL thought i would keep going and got to the top then thought how the hell do i get down safely with a pair of crocs on my feet LOL well i managed it but by the time i got back to the car dad was panic stricken and was ready to diall 999 to call in mountain rescue LOL not that he had any idea where we actually were LOL
the next two were done from classes over on the sarah's cards blog, this one is by rachael and used webster's pages, i normally avoid these like the plague as i just don't know what to do with them but after having two classes on how to use them now i think i might be after some more :-) i didn't have the same papers as rachael used but i love how it turned out :) the other one is from lou's class and was to create your own backing paper :-) lots of inky messy fun and i really enjoyed it, they are both nothing like my usual style but something i think i'd have a go at again :-) next a quick piccie of the remote control fire in our lodge, the journalling is in the little envelope and tells about how dad thought having a remote control fire was the height of decadence LOL the rest are of various holiday shots that i took when we were away in march, love the fact that, at this rate i might actually be finished that holiday album before i go away on the next holiday LOL any way hope you have enjoyed looking at these, i'm off for lunch, roast lamb is calling LOL
