A day full of Art

Ive done so much today. Finished off two CJ's, one effing layout for the dare on the "Pad" and Mark came home last night sporting his own piece of artwork - on his flaming arm! I had no idea he was getting this done. I quite like it but I couldn't exactly serve him with the divorce papers after seeing that! Mwahahahahahahaha. Its really scarey because although we are married - a tattoo is kind of like a bit more binding. Is binding the right word? You know what I mean. Crumbs. Unless of course he leaves me for another Kirsty - then Im sure thats fine. Lord - what am I talking about?
My dare layout was based on the number 10. I was racking my lil brains all week to try and find somwething suitable. It was "I-hate-you-scrapping-all-the-time-you-mad-crazy-woman-Mark-Wiseman" that came up with scrapping my toes. Gee wizzy wizz man. You either love what I do or don't. Make your mind up - aaaaaaaaaaaaarrrgh. I used up lots of scraps for this layout. By using my scraps for challenges like this makes the job so much less costly. I mean, I do stuff for mags and ok they get paid for. I do albums for me and us and I like to slurge out on stuff for them. But challenges ..... I dont know. I just feel more satisfied using spare bits up and I completely enjoy it. And I am insanely in love with my provo craft roller stamp (spells out Ten Toes on the layout).
Annie Hafermann - Look away. Cos this is the entry I did in your scrummy CJ. Annie's yummo book is entitled "Recipe for Life" and I couldn't help but use one of my lovely pictures of Ellie from yesterday in it. I actually think its one of my best CJ entries yet. To say I lost my mojo the other night too ... it must be the sunshine we had today that fuelled my hunger to get cracking. Im completely still in love with chatterbox a roo and you will find me using the scraps of this until every last centimetre has been used up. And have you seen the super cute flowers now available from Anna?
We are going to sunny welsh wales for a few days tomorrow whilst some of our freinds use our house to stop and visit their nearby family. I hate having to leave my wee house at times but Im glad all four walls will be cared for whilst we laze in the welsh hospitality. I wonder if I give our house sitters a paint brush that they would do the bathroom for us? Whilst we are away Im not going to be updating my blog neither but what I am going to do is download a few photography lessons and photoshop courses along with trying out my new wacom tablet and get my butt into gear for the launch of my new website soon -
Adios my fine freinds xx
