1. What's the last thing you threw away? A crisp packet.
2. Have you ever been to Paris? Yes - I know it very well and love it!
3. What do you stare at? The sea - I love the movement and the freedom and the moods that it has.
4. What do you hurry for? To get home to spend time with my family.
5. Friday fill-in:I could have been better organised - I'm sure that should be my motto!
Pay it a visit once in a while - it's interesting the way it can make you think!!

Meanwhile over at Saturday Stampers the theme is winter and here is my piece - an arch that I have made for a swap elsewhere. I'm really enjoying working in layers of acetate at the moment!

''Here are the rules which you must abide by if you are tagged.1. Link to your tagger and post these rules.2. Share 7 facts about yourself: some random, some weird.3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post and list their names (linking to them).4. Let them know they've been tagged by leaving a comment at their blogs.''
1. I have a phobia about cupboard doors being left open - I get twitchy and can't even go to bed if I haven't checked they are all closed .
2. I love the sea and feel very happy that I see the water every day from work
3. I am incredibly proud to be Scottish - I love my country and culture.
4. I go to bingo once a month with my Mum (who is also not a bingo kind of person - whatever that is)
5. When I was 10 I auditioned for and got a fair sized part in an American movie Hitler's demise, playing one of the children that was in the bunker with Hitler at the end. My parents changed their mind about it when they saw the filming schedule.
6. I am a fully qualified Leiutenant in the Boys' Brigade - although I am not involved at the moment.
7. I used to ski competitively as a teenager.
Kaz has also tagged me for this one
Players, you must list one fact that is somehow relevant to your life for each letter of your middle name. If you don’t have a middle name, use the middle name you would have liked to have had. When you are tagged you need to write your own blogpost containing your own middle name game facts. At the end of your blog post, you need to choose one person for each letter of your middle name to tag. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged and to read your blog.
My middle name is Anne (given to me in case I didn't like the slightly different Seona) so here goes
A - All my family - hubby and son - they are the centre of my universe and my fabulous close family, my brilliant supportive parents, aunt, cousins and families and the close friends that are the "family we choose for ourselves. Can't imagine life without them!
N - new things - I love trying new things - sports, arts, jobs, challenges, life is too short to fit everything in.
N - New York. I went for the first time with Stuart (son) last year and cannot wait to go back and share it with my husband.
E - eating, love it love good food, love cooking, love the social side of sitting down with friends to enjoy it.
Now who to tag - thankfully only need to find 4 so
Tag - you're it!

On this card I used watercolour crayons and a spray to create the background here and finished off with a dash of gold alcohol ink. The image is by Crafty Individuals.

This time the theme on Joanne's swap is circles. At the moment I am sorting out some bits of sewing for school so had lots of buttons lying around - these were my inspiration. All stamps are from the Oxford Impressions sewing plate - I just thought it would be more fun to sew the buttons on! ;o)
Please click on the images for a better idea of the detail.
Thanks for stopping by. x

Welcome back themed Wednesday Stamper! I missed the set challenges over the summer and am delighted to see them back. I realise it's a lot of work for the folks over there and I really appreciate it, so thanks to them!
This weeks challenge said
Well it's been a busy old week, what with going back to work and all, so nearly didn't make this at all!
By the skin of my teeth here is my entry for this week's challenge on Think Monday - Think ATC, where they said:
Every day we stumble across numbers, on licence plates, bills, letters. Most of the time we don’t pay attention to it. This week we will Integrate at least one number on your ATC. Whether large or small is all up to your phantasy.
Hope you like it :o)

It started as 3 or 4 tags but seemed to grow.
It was great fun to do and I must get some more of these cardboard pieces soon.
All the images won't fit on one post so bear with me more pics to follow. As always click for more detail ;o)

DCM this week.
Hi there, It's me, Kathy, here to dare you this week;
OK, Absolutely anything goes this week as long as it's on the theme of TIME."It's About Time" So you can use clocks, calendars, quotes, sayings, pictures, nursery rhymes, or altered art-type stuff, whatever takes your fancy - just take some time out to play and have some fun; remember, time flies when you're having fun!
Hope you like this, the colours are quite soft and muted without being pastel and it's been hard to show that in the picture. Stamp is Paperbag Studios and is on acetate.
