Someday, the altered art you make today will be
old, faded, falling apart, and someone else will salvage the bits and use them
in new altered art.It's the best that any piece of art can hope for

and so it continues

I had to change track a bit for my 'book' after Lily posted this weeks TOFFChallenge, which was 'Sunshine'. Matthew's Aunt once told me a lovely story of when her son was young and he did a picture of something rather unrecognisable. As pictures are always important to children you should never ask what it is, because that should be obvious, so she said 'how lovely tell me all about it...' his reply? 'Mum..... its a scribble' 
However this fits nicely into my plan, so I used it.

Over on Hels Blog, the Sunday Stamper challenge is 'sunsets' so I am hoping this will be ok to enter for that as well. As I usually forget to actually include stamping in Hels challenge (and that's whats its all about) and she lets me get away with it, I am sure she will allow a sunshine/sunset entry. If she doesn't I will just sulk and steal all the cheesy things that she loves, not that I am petty or anything.....

I did try to tidy up my craft-room, but got distracted by a project that I must get done PDQ, my top tip for today is not to squeeze your bottle of glossy accents too hard, cos if you do the top bit comes off at quite a speed and goes everywhere, including your face and is a bugger to get off!!

I will leave you with that thought!


  1. This is great Nicks and no it wouldn't be petty!
    hmmm thanks for the tip on glossy accents - I have one for you - don't squeeze an old bottle of pva glue - it disintegrates in your hands and you have the stuff everywhere....!

  2. Love this! I'll have to send you my nearly empty glossy accents bottle cos I can't get the top bit off to empty out the glue.... lol!

  3. oh am rolling about laffing... cheek of it!!!! Stealing my Cheesy Chester Cheeto's!!! Well, of course, this is good for the challenge this week lol Loving that sentiment.. .kids do say the best things!! Thanks for joining in hun x
