Tick Tock, Tick Tock…


Not so keen on getting up in the dark this morning, it will make it up to me this evening when I’m driving home in the light, and I will be able to run later.

Scrapping and setting up this blog yesterday was therapeutic and I ended up quite pleased with what I made. After the yellow layout I made at the retreat for a weekly challenge, I have been quite daring for me on that side of the colour wheel Rainbow

This was for the challenge on UKS this week, unfortunately I had used bunting last week so now I had to use it again, but actually I am quite pleased with it. Last week it was layered pennants which was a bit fiddly.

The papers were from Laura at the retreat and I love how they came out with the photos.

The two photos were from the last few weeks at school in 1990, although a lot of us stayed on for sixth form. The top one is of the girls v boys netball, we played them at football as well. I can’t remember who won, but I remember howling with laughter. I expect the girls won, right? Winking smile

If you squint, I am the player in the back row with the Centre tab and the blonde, 3 in from the right is Darren, my first serious boyfriend from 15-17!

The other photo has horrid light, I have scanned it in before I have used it and added some light and contrast so it looks better but I have no ink so I went with the original. It is of another gang of us loitering in the fifth year common room.

Here is a close up of the stamped image which was one of the ‘required elements’, this was from the first stamp set I bought, which I think is still my most oft used. I coloured with my copics, and used rock candy stickles, now it has properly dried overnight it looks great.


30 points, probably my last this month as I have lots of cards to make……


  1. I used to play Goal Attack, I enjoyed netball in school, you're lucky to have pictures of it.

  2. I wouldn't have been able to pick you out of a line up, that's for sure. I've never played netball, I was a hockey girl. Love what you have done and that butterfly is fab.

  3. Great page preserving great memories.
