Scrap the boys August Challenge

A big Hi to all,
Sorry to take so long to get back to this but my technical incompetency did not allow me to post for so long!!!!! Yes I am a gump but am learning to just press a few buttons and hey presto all fixed, don't really know what was wrong in the first place but hey I am here!
So what have I been doing (other than cursing at said technology and asking my 10 yo to fix it)? Well not too much really, amazing how much time frustration can take up, and, I have to admit, I am a little addicted to Pintrest..... so much to see on there! Anyhow back to it, I am currently still looking for that lost Mojo and have really struggled to create anything. This is my take on the August Challenge over at Scrap the Boys.

The inspiration was this photo:

And this is what I finally came up with:

I decided to focus on all the woodgrain and the wheel thingy so that I could indulge my cog fetish yet again, am out of them now so will have to find another passion!!!! Tee Hee

Am really struggling with this Blogger ATM it has chucked a massive Tanty on me and won't let me post with the latest editor only the old one so it is incredibly frustrating, it is refusing to submit to my needs so I have no idea how this is going to come out, so I apologize in advance.

Really have to go away now and hope against hope that it decides to correct itself and behave in a more congenial manner. What are my chances you think? Perhaps it was something I said earlier that has thrown it in a spin?
Until next time I decide to do battle,
I bid you all farewell,
