Home again, on line again, crafting again

Though who knows how long any of it will last!! Just got back from a great break in Spain with the family - seriously, I did NOT want to come home! Here's why:-
Just heaven. Still, since I got back have managed to get my new pc up and running, so far so good, so expect to see me about a bit more. Feeling very disconnected with everything and very out of touch but I will get there. Have also finished a couple of crafty pieces. Here is another altered slide mailer I started for myself when making this month's giveaway.
This is using the replacement stamp set I chose from crafty individuals (see this post). I just love that bathing beauty!!
Inside I found a use for the huge pot of crushed seashells I have had forever and because that made it all a bit bulky I split the mailer in two and made a 'hinge/spine' from some paper I bought at paperchase about two years ago. I always feel better when I use up a bit of stash (especially when I know I'm going to go out shopping soon lol). Talking of using old stash the challenge at Try it On Tuesday this week is to use a stamp that you bought but have nerver, ahem, actually used. Not many of them in my stash!! (Everything is crossed as I say that). Anyhow I know that I bought this fairy silhouette stamp well over a year ago (Oh alright, it is a whole set of them, never been used) and I don't think I've ever used the sentiment either. At least it looks very clean!!
Finally a quick peek of the inside of this month's giveaway which I didn't upload because all my technology was being so unco-operative.
Join in here before 30th September.
