Welcome to my blog! I never really thought I would create a blog untill hubby set up a family one. I started posting to it and was told off for "hijacking" it with my "craft rubbish!" And so the Nerdbird Blog was born! Not sure how much I'll post but I understand that this blogging lark can be addictive!

Dreams LO with Just Bex prize

Here is the LO I have done for a challenge on CBC. Theme was Dreams. I have done my dreams as a child and my dreams now. This is for my BOM and I thought it was a LO I could repeat over the years.

The papers are from my prize from the "Just Bex" competition so thanks Bex!

It doesn't show up to well on the photo but the flowers around the photo are raised on foam pads and the H and D are chipboard

Friday Night Challenge

Another Challenge from "Just Bex"

"Create a LO using only cardstock, paper and pens (and photos, of course ). No stamps, no ink, no embellishments, no computer-journalling, although cutting-tools can be used for card and paper, such as die-cutters, punches, etc."

So here is mine!

Night in at the Movies Challenge

For this challenge we had to create a LO based around the film 'The Wizard Of Oz'.

The "twinkle type" RED letters were too big for the page (8x8) so I put them in the photo instead!
