Racing Hubby

Today is my Wedding Anniversary and as well as a card which will be on my blog another day I also made this scrapbook page for Hubby. He used to race hydroplanes and then as the tag says he met me and couldn't afford us both. It isn't something I am at all interested in but he goes to watch them some Thursday evening leaving me free to craft. There is one woman who goes and moans all the time and sits playing computer games. I would rather we both spent time enjoying our separate hobbies. There are plenty of things we both enjoy together.

The papers are DCWV Nantucket and Papermania Ahoy There. The gorgeous ribbon and buttons are from a new nautical range at Crafty Ribbons. 

Crafty Ribbons have now joined blogger and you can find their new blog here. They are holding a follower's candy so hop over for the chance to win these

This new blog is the shop blog. there is also of course still the challenge blog and the inspirations blog.

So after all that I would like to enter my scrapbook page into the following challenges.

The Crafting Cafe Here come the boys 
Crafty Sentiment Something fishy, boats etc
Papertake Anything Goes 
Dream Valley Sports
Sketch Saturday Perfect sketch for a layout

I agree wholheartly, Alistair and I do separate things and it's great coming back to tell each other about our exploits, we've always got things to talk about. Hugs Kate x
