Time flies when you're enjoying yourself - or so the saying goes.  Well, time is DRAGGING big time for me. I'm bored, bored, bored lol.  I'm going to Cyprus in August to see my daughter and gorgeous family and I'm already counting down the days.  Way too many to go ha, ha.  I don't think this lousy weather is helping anybody's mood either.  We've just had massive hailstones.  Anyway, on to the things at hand eh?

This week over at I ♥ PROMARKERS, it's week #169 and our theme is Anything Goes.  So, you've no excuses not to join in, well, as long as you use a Letraset marker of some sort that is.  We have two sponsors this week:  HOBBYCUTZ with a prize of a £7.50 voucher and DR. DIGI with a prize of 2 digi images.  I used a Dr. Digi image called Psychedelic Syd.

I thought I'd try and start using some of my zillions of scraps as I'm running out of space for them and I really don't want to throw them away.  Yeah, I know, we've all been there, lol.  So these papers are from a layout I did of my Grandson recently. The range is Simple Stories.  I used a Martha Stewart deep edge punch and a bit of ribbon and some buttons from my stash.  The sentiment is from one of my new stamp plates by Indigo Blu, my fave stamp company at the moment. And, I have to tell you, I can so relate to it, lol.  I'm now at the stage where I can't do half of what I used to do and I don't like it one little bit!!!  Ageing is cruel, cruel, cruel, ha ha.  I fussy cut Syd, mounted him on foam pads and put a Nestie shape behind him.

Entering into:
CRAFTY RIBBONS #46 - Anything goes with ribbon on.
SOUTHERN GIRLS - Going spotty dot.
ADDICTED TO STAMPS AND MORE #46 - Anything goes.
CRAFTS AND ME #134 - Lots of layers.
THE PERFECT SENTIMENT #80 - Anything goes.
PASSION FOR PROMARKERS #199 - Anything goes.
BEARLY MINE - Anything goes.
