Desserts - 365+1

Reju - Strawberry Field, CMC Divine Chocolate, Fanette Designs - Relax
Well, I couldn't just stop at one!  Here are some of the desserts I've featured on Farmersgirl Kitchen, it does seem that I am drawn towards chocolate and berries!  A couple of lemon recipes but I had to look hard to find them!

Light - 365+1

Kit: Family Tree by Kate Hadfield, M Godin, R Young for Lilypad

Today's prompt is Light.  This is a silhouette of my husband with the light behind him.  I was inspired in this digital scrapbook page by a layout by Katy Fox in the May 2012 issue of Scrap 365.

Handmade (with love) - 365+1

Template - by Sine, Designs by Dydyge - For all you are, DSD by Athena - Noteworthy
The prompt of 'Handmade' certainly gave me a dilemma, I have so many things I could show that I have made myself.  However, I think the horseshoe and presentation 'book' that I made for my son and DIL's wedding is one that I am most proud of.

My Art - 365+1

Template: L Bozeman More than one, Sweet Tomato - Darjeeling
Today's prompt is 'art' and preferably our own art.  I went back to 2009 when I did a 52 week altered playing card challenge, this was my take on 'Art' then. Photos were taken outside on a sandstone shelf that holds my herb pots, you can see a little rosemary leaf on the right!

Don't forget to enter my giveaway to win a Tando Creative 'House' mini printer tray.

Tradition - 365+1

Scrap Shana - Tis the Season
What is more traditional than mince pies at Christmas?  I loved making this layout with the lovely Christmassy kit by Scrap Shana.  Don't forget to check out my 1000th post Giveaway

Power - 365+1

Wondergirls - Sweet Afternoon.
I'm a day late with this layout in the 365+1 challenge because I was posting my 1000th post giveaway yesterday and ran out of time.  I'll post today's page shortly.  We live on a farm and see lots of wildlife, but rarely get to see a Kestrel this close.

1000 Posts and a Giveaway

This is my 1000th blog post, how on earth did that happen?  I started blogging to join in card making challenges and as I post my 1000th blog post, it is as part of a daily photography challenge which I've chosen to make a digital scrapping photography challenge.

To celebrate my 1000th post,  I am giving away a Tando Creative mini printer tray.  Tando Creative is a small company run by husband and wife, Tony and Di Oliver.  All of the chipboard is cut and packed by them and is of a very high quality.  There is a list of suppliers on the blog HERE.

 This is what the mini printer tray looks like 'naked'!  It's all ready for you to put together and decorate and here are some of the ways that the Design Team at Tando Creative put their own individual stamp on the basic chipboard.

This printer tray house was decorated by the very talented Irit Shalom more details on the Tando Creative Blog

This one is more shabby chic style and has been made by Isabelle Norris, lots more close ups and details on Isabelle's Blog Eclectic {art}

And here is another different take on the Home mini tray from Irit Shalom  again.

There are lots more ideas for using Tando products on the Design Team's blogs:

I have one Tando Creative Mini Printer Tray to give away, if you would like to win it, then complete the instructions on the Rafflecopter widget above, there is one main way of entering and several ways to gain bonus entries.  Thanks for visiting, good luck and I hope you will return soon.

Tower - 365+1

L Bozeman - White Space Template, Chouk77 Designs, My Funny City
It had to be a quick one today, as I am pretty tired tonight, so an easy template and an old photo from my holiday in Tuscany in 2009.  The little man at the top of the clock tower moved around rang the bell.

Cross - 365+1

Kate Hadfield, R Young - Family Tree, JD Blooming, Julie Marie - Bailey
Suzie's prompt for today was 'Cross' for St George's Day.  I don't have 'a cross' for your but I do have 'across' if you see what I mean!  The photograph has been treated with a Sumi-e filter in PSE.

Flag - 365+1

Template - Sunshine Studios Sherwood Studio - Thrift, Cafe Vienna, Choubinette Designs - Romantic Spring, Mandy Made - Imaginarium
Today's prompt is 'Flag'.  I didn't really think I was going to have any chance of seeing a flag today so I have used a photo from our holiday in Tuscany a couple of years ago.

Entrance and Small - 365+1

Sherwood Studio - Drift
That's me caught up again, Wednesday's prompt was Entrance and this is the door of our 'cart shed' or garage, I love how old and shabby the door is with the huge borads and peeling paint.

Binty's Every Day

And these are our calves, they are small now, but it won't be long till they grow up into full sized cattle.

Bold - 365+1

Chouk 77 - My funny City
Playing catch up tonight and no photo - shock, horror!  Anyway this is my interpretation of Bold, using bold fonts.

Tree - 365+1

Connie Prince - Spring is my Thing
I took this photograph on Saturday night when we had this amazing rainbow.  I wanted to scrap it so have used the 'tree' prompt...well there is a tree in it!  It's strange but I didn't use the tree prompt last time either, although I am surrounded by them!

Coiled - 356+1

Snickerdoodle Designs- Outside my Window and Granny Finch's Garden
I don't suppose most people have a reel of coiled barbed wire in their garage, but we do!  And I remembered the barbed wire fence from the Snickerdoodles kit, perfect match!

Shocking! - 365+1

DCC - Rustic Cabin, Julie Marie - Bailey
We captured this sign when we visited the Sequoias in Northern California, not something we are used to in Scotland!

Clutter - 365+1

Maya de Groot - Hoity Toity, Green Door, Arty Farty; Digital Crea - Paint my Garden
I have this notice board which used to hang above my craft desk until we remodelled the living room.  I hung it on the wall in the bedroom and have never moved it.  There is so much 'clutter' on it that I haven't been able to face it!

Gentle - 365+1

Digital Crea Collab - Sit Back and Relax
It's amazing just how gentle Muffin, the chocolate labrador, is with my grandson, she is so protective of him and while she jumps all over everyone else, she understands that with him, she must be gentle.

Lots and Lots - 365+1

Sherwood Studio for Digichick - Thriftique, the back room
Most of these CDs belong to my husband.  It is a running joke that I only own two CDs, however I have to say that the top two rows are probably all mine, the rest are jointly owned or stuff that I would never choose to listen to!

A Girly 365 + some Easter Tags

Digital Crea - Chris Scrap and Chouk

I thought I'd show you the tags I made for the Easter Eggs and gifts for my family.  A bit of Distress Ink a couple of stamps and some doodling!

Pastel - 365+1

Mini-eggs have beautiful pastel coloured shells and I dug up this old collab kit called Sunshine Sweets which was part of a blog hop giveaway in 2008.

What is this? 365+1

Kit - Wonderful Summer
I'm sure you can guess what is at the centre of my layout. 'What is this?' is today's prompt.

 Yes, you were right, it was a pig's snout!  I snapped this glorious piggie on a day out to Mabie Farm Park.

Costume - 365+1

I found the prompt for today, Costume, quite difficult to interpret.  This photo was taken at the Beatrix Potter Centre at Lake Windermere.  She is a hedgehog in 'costume' and she launders the 'costume' of others. That will just have to do!
