Craft Barn Challenge patience and/or better.

I am up with the Lark today, loved the words and I have chosen Patience. I am off on holiday today to Nepal (hense the early rise) and thought patience fits right in with the Hindu and Buddhist belief.  The quote is:

'The Greatest Patience is Humility' Buddha
I sprizted a background with a picture of Buddha in the corner and then stamped. I used 1st 2nd and 3rd generation stamping so it wasn't to in your face and easy to write over.

Thank you all for looking at my page and leaving lovely comments and those that look but cant leave comments. I may not get around to looking at all your lovely pages this time, and if I do it will be from Nepal.

Hope you like and will be back again in a couple of weeks.

Craft Barn Challenge Childhood and/or Easier


Before I start can I just say I  live in Southampton not Spain, if only I was so interesting. I remember once when selling our house in Norwich I put an advert in our window (it was the late 80's you could sell houses that easily then) saying for sale £45,000 phone Spain on... After a number of calls about our non existent villa in Spain we re worded the advert!

Took me a while to find a quote this week. However came across this, and I do like Miranda Hart.

'I spent my childhood clad in 1970's hand-me-downs, primarily from male cousins, which mainly consisted of a selection of beige, brown and orange dungarees. That, combined with a perfectly round pudding bowl haircut, made me look, on a good day, like a cross between Ann Widdecombe, one of the flower pot men and a monk.'

I sprizted the page with yellow and blue colour bloom and then made a collage of a what I envisaged Miranda Hart meant - complete with straw hat. I used a male template to emphasise they were boy dungarees, but also added girly shows and blouse.

Hope you like.
