These are what i will be spending next week on I'm off the the Norfolk Broads . I think i will be in the second boat but not sure. we will sort out who's going where when we get there . I'm really looking forward to getting away but would have been happy in something that was on land LOL. Hopefully the good old British weather will be kind and it will be dry if nothing else but in not holding my breath. We are starting out at wroxham and i dont have a clue where were going from there.

This weeks challenge over on FFTT is.... wheres me head
This is what they had to say "Well, it's that time again....time to think twisted! Sure hope you are up for the challenge again. This week's theme is "Where was my head?" This could mean "what was I thinking" or could be asking the location of a missing head. Interpret it as you like and be sure to link your blog so that we can have a look. Happy creating!"
This was a real hard one for me then i thought of a conversation i had with my son the other week when we were looking at photos of when he was younger, He said what was you thinking dressing me in that as he looked at most of the photos hes now a COOL 12 yr old well he thinks hes cool he has so much to learn,,, but to be honest i was thinking the same(tehe) why on earth did i put him in them stripy trousers and them coloured shoes LOL. He also called me mama when he was little to ah BLESS/
heres my take on the challenge

I cant believe we are at challenge 4 already with Arty Girlz just want to say thank you to every one that has joined in so far and for sharing your Amazing work with us.
Fot this challenge i made 3 waxed ATC's using house hold candles and a travel iron,
all i did was tear the images and attach them to my Atc blank by dripping the wax over the image and just repeated and when done buffed witha cloth i reall like the effect you get as the images go translusant. Although my photo is a bit dark and you cant really see they are better in real life Honest LOL,

This weeks challenge on Gothic Arches is Flowers
This is what they said......"This weeks theme at Gothic Arches is “Flowers”…what do you think of? a bright spring day with tulips blooming? a summer field of sunflowers? autumns harvest of mum plants? whatever comes to your mind we would love to see it in the form of a gothic arch."
I really wanted to do something different today, i have lots of paints pencils and all sorts and never use them mainly because im .....Afraid... LOL. so i got some acrylic paint and bits of sponge and swiped and splodge the back ground. used various paper Artsy stamps and the flower image is from a fantasy cd (just love this flower) so printed and cut that out. the butterfly is from crafty individuals miniatures book, i cut the butterfly out and rolled the wings over my fingers so it has a 3d effect but it's stuck down as well. I quite like the background and will defiantly use my paints more
