playing with my new stamps

Finally managed to get my trip to Amsterdam on Friday- and it was quite successful-
- Picasso exhibition at the Van Gogh Museum
- the jumper my husband wanted 50% off
- and some new hero art bike stamps
So today I finally had time to use them while the boys were at the football match ( yesterday Arthur and Nancy shared a birthday party)

This first LO is a scraplift of someone called cookielover at two peas- hers is so much more detailed but I like mine
I need a good photo of my three to make into a canvas print so this morning I attempted a photo shoot in the garden- 8 photos later we were cold and nowhere nearer a good photo but I did get a LO out of all the failures!( The new stamp is on the first tag) 164/365

On the second LO I used the bike stamp to make a patterned paper ( well I tried) I love bike patterned paper- so I though these stamps would give me loads of options

The photos and embellishments are focused on the corner of the page because the first stamp was a bit of a disaster and I wanted to cover it up

Now I need a good white ink pad so I can make some other sheets of paper 163/365

And why not go over to Scrapbookers Anonymous and join in the March challenge- use up your flower stash- use at least seven flowers on your LO - go on the link is at the side-
