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!

Challenge on Just Bex

Well I am WAYYYY behind on the challenges on JB but here is one finally! I rec'd a fab acrylic album in my latest Cocoa Daisy kit and I am going to make an album about my family - so I hope this counts as a LO!
The word FAMILY is chipboard letters on the front of the album,
and then the photo with overlay is the first page
Will post more pages as I do them

Another gift

I am off to see a Friend in bonny Scotland next week so as I thank you for having us I have made her some presents! After the success of Alex's picture I have done another one for Karyn, hope she likes it!
You can't see it too well in the photo but the little photo is raised up on 3d pads and there are crystals on the rub ons and glitteron the letters,

Altered tin

My brother is into Poker so when I same these poker chips on Altered Treasures I knew I had to do something for him! So I brought a little tin and covered it in paper and decorated inside and then stuck family photo's on both sides of each chip!

Me and my boys

My cousin took this photo - I love it!

CJ storage

Thanks to the lovely Sue I am now addicted to CJ's! I have 2 compete, 3 nearly finished and 2 about to start! So the question is where to store them? A while ago we did an altered art swop on CBC and the fantastic Lisa made me a box to store my Buffy/Angel CJ that we are in. This got me thinking ... so I found a plain pine box in Homebase and tarted it up to match my craft room!

I am going to make organza bags for each one! I am quite pleased with the result - got a bit stamp happy though (when will I learn to stop!) but I can't take it off now so never mind!
