Summer Holidays at An Oldie But Goodie

Hello and welcome to my lovely new followers - it's great to see you here - hope you like what you see and decide to stay a while.

Today sees the launch of a new challenge for you over at

and this time my lovely blogging and DT buddy
 (and surrogate Grandma to Oliver and Lola Arizona) Laurie
has picked the theme


Now the idea behind thechallenge blog is to use your crafty goodies that you have had in your stash for a t least 6 months.

I decided to go with something completely different for me and made my card using my Craft Artist CD Rom that I have had for over a year now and never done anything with it!!!

So I created a background using papers, materials and elements from one of the many Digi Kits I also bought with the Craft Artist CD - 'Beaches' from Daisy Trail - available here

I then added one of my digi images from Digi Stamp Boutique - the PNG version so that is was the outline only so when I printed the whole thing off I was then able to colour the omage using my PM's and FM'S

I have had this resource in my stash for such a long time and never used it before but I was thrilled with the end result :o)

I have already had another wee play with the CD and craeted some Digi Scarpo LO's that I hope to share with you another day.

Our sponsor this week is
Robyn's Fetish
Please check the main challenge blog for all the details of the prize on offer and all the gorgeous inspiration from my lovely DT buddies.

Morning Debs

What a really great beach scene and love the surf dood.

Might need to get that one as it will be prefect for Eliot, he's a real surf fanatic, search me why he enjoys it so much in our cold waters.

Thanks so much for joining us at Craft a Scene this month and really hope you will join us again.

Hope the family are all well, no doubt the grandchildren are growing and probably on their feet by now.
