A Challenge

I had intended to be back sooner with a post but time has been flying past!

I was very proud of myself yesterday because I upgraded my phone and managed to transfer all the data from my old one to the shiny new one.  The is probably easy for most people but for me, iTunes, sync, restore to previous back up are a foreign language.  When the lovely sales assistant in the shop was telling me what to do all I could hear was blah, blah, blah.  But I came home and did it; ok, so it took ALL night, but I DID IT!

What I was going to do last night was blog about the weekly challenge that my team have set over at UKScrappers.  The challenge is to scrap a photo of a woman/women, do some sewing and celebrate an achievement.  Here's my take on it:
Me and my BFF celebrating our 40th birthday.  I was going to machine sew on the layout but couldn't get the machine to play nicely so I decided to hand stitch a border. I think the achievement is that we've stayed friends since nursery school!
I loved last month's Sarah's Cards kit so much that I had to layer up lots of the papers because it was too hard to pick just a few!

Now I am off to be crafty, which I was hoping to be last night, and pray that we don't have any more snow!

Thank you for stopping by

Beautiful page!

Believe me, I'm right with you on the complicated technology. Every time somebody says sync to me, all I can think of is "sink". So good for you!
