Carry on Camping and starting a Granny Stripe

Yep,I'm still doing layouts for Camp Scrap - these are two from the last week.
The photo of the bluey one is not so good but you get the idea. The blue layout was a suggestion by May to 'get a load of odd supplies and just play about with them'.I used some of the De Lovely range,a Prima flower, Kaisercraft ribbon,and October Afternoon papers (lots of stash-moi?!)It's pretty vibrant but it seems to work ok on this one.

The Lionel one was just - well just a Lionel one.!I was listening to 'Stuck on You' and it inspired me to find the pics of one of his concerts I went to,which makes me think It MUST be nearly time for him to do another one ......
...and now onto hooky things.

I'm a bit naughty really cos I'm still doing the ripple but I so want to jump on the bandwagon and make a 'Granny Stripe' blanket like the one  here .Lucy has such a following on her blog and I love her patterns.So I made a start yesterday evening and managed to get the pattern to work and I was away,I just love having things on the go- much to himelf's annoyance.You have to have a bit of a change though don't you??

The stripe looks gorgeous - oh, how I want to pick up crochet! Fab layouts too, I love the mixed-up embellishments on the first, they really work well xx

Hi, I too just started on a granny stripe blanket. It will be fun to stop by here and see your progress. I'm really enjoying this project. The colors are so fun.
Yours looks great!

The blue layout looks great, you've managed to make all the different manufacturers work really well together.

The granny stripe looks very cool too. I'm always starting something new before finishing the last thing! I like your choice in colours for it. x

The stripe is fantastic! And thanks for pointing me to another blog to enjoy. I'm always flitting between projects too..a bit of variety is a good thing I reckon.
