Block party bash

I'm really enjoying scrapping the photo's from our Florida holiday, even though it was last November, it's great to 're-live' those days as I make the layouts. This one is based on the sketch #042 at twisted sketches, the twist is to include 'flight' in the page...mine is VERY tenuous...the link is a very small photo of Buzz Lightyear!


Quick post!

Time is just flying so fast at the moment! Just thought I'd pop in with a super quick post to share a layout I did from the Pencil lines 179 sketch....even though sketch 180 is up already!!!

I thought I'd just share this layout I did for the sketch at Sketchy Thursday this week. It's quite minimalist for me with far more 'white space' than I am comfortable with!!

Twisted sketches #041

Just a quickie post to share a layout I did for this weeks sketch at twisted sketches......


Hiya, after going for a swim this morning I've had a nice lazy day at home catching up with some scrappy challenges and having some time relaxing with the rest of the family...bliss!

I have thrown myself into scrapping lots of our last holiday photo's and must say I'm having a great time remembering some of the lovely times we had. Like this one here.......

It's loosely baesd on the sketch 178 at Pencil lines this week. I've had this leftover paper from cosmo cricket for a while and decided it was high time I used it up! Thanks for looking x

So glad it's the weekend!

I've had a busy and challenging working week and to top it off have got a cold, so I'm feeling a bit sorry for myself  right now! Anyway, this morning I took Dan to footy and stood in the rain watching the match (we lost 6-0  Ouch!), but it was nice to be out and even though we lost I enjoyed the game.

I'm really pleased with this month's scrapgogo kit, so much so that I've already done 2 layouts with it and it only arrived on Thursday!

Go go power rangers!

This is my take on this week sketch over at Creative Scrappers. Dan really didn't want to pose for a photo, but we managed to persuade him that his cousin Ethan would love to see him with the power rangers! I've only included a very small photo of Dan in the layout since he was so embarassed about it!! I've used some of this months fab scrapgogo kit.

Scrapagogo hybrids

I am currently trying to get to grips with PSE6 and decided it would be fun to try a layout only using this months scrapagogo hybrid kit. It's quite a basic layout, no drop shadows or anything too complicated, but since I am a complete beginner (this is only my third digi layout!) I am  quite pleased with it.

I'm now off to play with the real paper kit...woohoo! Thanks for looking!

Turkey Legs

Dan and Beth loved those huge turkey legs that you can buy at Magic Kingdom, so I just had to record it.
* edited to add...they didn't eat a whole one each, we did share!!!*

I am really happy to have managed to do so much scrapping this week, and since I have a day off tomorrow, I may get even more done! :)  I'm hoping to join in with some of the sketch challenge blogs to get the inspiration flowing freely. Thanks for looking x

Victorian miss

Just wanted to share a photo of Beth in her victorian costume that she wore yesterday for a themed school visit to Powderham Castle. It's great what you can do with an old valance sheet and sewing machine isn't it?!

Also a super quick layout (it's all I get time for!) of some of the halloween display at universal studios from our holiday last year.

A pig of a day

I'm not feeling very talkative today...it's been a flippin' rubbish working day today...too many challenging moments for one day...ENOUGH!

Just wanted to share a cute little layout I did at the weekend of my gorgeous baby neice Caitlin. I'm not confident with white space yet...but think I'm getting there! Thanks for looking x

Sketchy Thursday (on Sunday!)

Here's a quick layout I did for this weeks sketchy Thursday  We had a good old giggle trying on the dinosaur hats, and the shop assisstant was so nice and offered to take our photo...I'm glad she did, I love this silly photo of us all.

Happy Mother's Day

I've been a very lucky mum today. I've had breakfast in bed, choccies, a CD and these gorgeous flowers...
