Nothing


What have I made today? Nothing but a mess.

I've printed off photos ready to make LOs and got pretty much every sheet of paper thar I possess out to see what would work but came up with a big fat nothing.
I really wanted to use the latest Pencil Lines sketch but I'm only doing 8x8 and I don't think it works for the photos I wanted to use.
I've tried about 4 different colours of card and loads of colour combos for papers but it's just rubbish. Maybe it's just a state of mind thing.

These are the photos I wanted to use. This is my cousin's new baby "modelling" the quilt and bumper set I made for his cot.
I think I've realised that it needs to have a fairly plain background rather than the pretty patterns I wanted to use - they look far too busy with these pics. Maybe if I just used one photo it would be better. I just don't know. aaaaggggggghhhhhh

So if you've got any bright ideas, or good advice, or even just a want to say you've been in this place too, please feel free to leave me a message. The most fully-stocked craftroom in the world is a lonely place when your creativity's gone on walkabout.

But on yesterdays blog you'd made millions and had loads of crafty mojo...! Don't worry Kathy, you'll get it back when you least expect it (I did, kinda). Love the baby bedding - you are a talented one!

wow you are amazing making that Kathy!!! I would suggest going for a green background, I love green and yellow together....there is some 7 gypsies pale green baby paper that has the words baby printed on them. I have used that in green before and it looks cool....or just go plain green...

I know how you feel regards layouts. I'm in the middle of one & just can't find that something to make it gel....
Still you got lots done the day before so perhaps your fingers are begging a rest!!!!
Love the picture you want to use that baby bedding is cute. I have some papers that would go with that. They are called Welcome Baby Girl by American Traditional Designs & I bought them from Kalulu. 14 sheets of paper & a few tags borders etc...cost me about £8
I could email you a pic later when I get home for dinner.
