Dreamweaver Stencil Scrapbook Page Layout by Wear Crafts

Dreamweaver Stencil Scrapbook Page Layout by Wear Crafts...

Now I never thought the pasty, inky, gelli stuff was my cup of tea BUT!!!! I had an epiphany (well I had lots of epiphanies actually and said that word repeatedly throughout the two days) on the Dreamweaver course. I managed to make something I thought would be messy and unpredictable into something clean and controllable (yet with random results if that makes sense!). Sharing the first project I created after the course today... I have written a full tutorial to go with it, which I will post next week, after the Creative Crafts Show at Gateshead on Saturday... so if you have purchased your Dreamweaver products from Wear Crafts, you will have a project ready to follow!

Rocking Your World Friday

Make sure you visit the lovely Virginia here to join in.

Ok... so today I am making time to sit back and be thankful...

I am so happy that DS2 has a place at his secondary school of choice...
I am thankful that we celebrated Dad's birthday this week...
I am grateful for the wizards at James Cook hospital who made the above possible...
I am thrilled that the pounds are falling off...
I thoroughly appreciate my family and friends...
I think my DTeamies are mint...
I love the position I am in and am in awe every day that Wear Crafts just is mine...
And it is crop night!

Here is a nice photo of me for a change....
...learning how to be a Dreamweaver girl!
Hope you have a lovely weekend planned and happy scrapping, jenx

Happy Birthday Elizabeth Barrett Browning

Happy Birthday Elizabeth Barrett Browning.... How many of you have quoted or partly quoted this little gem on a scrapbook page? Happy scrapping, jenx www.wearcrafts.co.uk

How Do I Love Thee?

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways. 
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of Being and ideal Grace.
I love thee to the level of every day's
Most quiet need, by sun and candlelight.
I love thee freely, as men strive for Right;
I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise.
I love with a passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood's faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints, -- I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life! -- and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.
Elizabeth Barrett Browning
