Crafters Companion Challenge No.3


Well, I've only just discovered this challenge blog & thought I'd have a go as the prize is a popcorn stamp set (& I love that little bear - have the Christmas Popcorn CD's on their way to me as we speak). I don't actually have that much Crafters Companion stuff anyway. I have a few cute companions stamps that I won when I had some cards published in a magazine, a free Christmas CD that came with a magazine and the triple flower fairies CD's - so that's what I've used for this.

This is the first time I've had a go at Stackerpage, and I love it - in spite of my silicone glue deciding that today was the day that the lid would break and so the glue set at the top of the tube (aaarrrrgggghhhh!!) - oh and the only foam pads I have are 2mm ones - not so good when there are 9 layers to this stacker. In the end I cut the end off my silicone glue and used a cocktail stick to put it on the layers and stick together. I haven't used these CD's too much so it was nice to have a real go with them, they are incredibly easy to use - even though I'm using a Macbook and so don't get the fancy graphical interface that my PC using friends get.

Well this has been a very relaxing way to end my week off work - back to getting up early tomorrow, so I suppose I should finish the housework and Ironing, oh and my daughter wants to have a barbecue tonight, in spite of the fact that it keeps clouding over and looking like it will rain at any moment! (teenagers! hopefully she'll grow out of it)
