Always happy to be together...........

that's Dan, Beth and Ethan, and they will be tomorrow since we are all getting together for a weekend away to celebrate dad's 70th birthday. Hoping to take a fresh batch of photo's to start scrapping nexy week too!

This LO was based on sketch 243 at pencil lines and I'm still using up old scrapagogo stash for the use it up challenge!

Funny girl

Beth loves to lark around and has a great sense of fun and playfulness about her....I love it (in small doses!)
I did this LO using up scraps from lots of leftover scrapagogo  kits and worked from sketch 161 at creative scrappers as my inspiration point. TFL x

Sun shine smile

This is based on sketch #106 at Twisted sketches  and features my lovely nephew Ethan. This was the first time I used spray ink on a LO...I must say I'm pretty pleased with the result!

Modern Day Princess

Just thought I'd post this LO I did for sketch 242 at Pencil lines of my super cute neice in her snow white dress brandishing a light sabre...she doesn't need a handsome prince to rescue her...she can take care of herself!!! All supplies used from various scrapagogo kits.

Remember when it was sunny?

It's rained so much this week, I'm longing for some lovely warm sunshine again, so it cheered me up a bit to make a LO from a sunny day of my little neice Caitie playing in the garden. I used this weeks sketch from Stuck as my starting point and all of the supplies are from the February kit from Scrapagogo. Thanks for looking!

Travel journal

I made one of these a couple of years ago for our Florida was great to jot notes in and add tickets, maps, park guides etc to. It also made it much easier when it came to scrapping my photos to add detail to my journaling. So, this year we have booked to go to New York for 4 days then on to Washington for a further 7 days, and since we are gonna be very busy whilst we are there I have started another to record the little details of the trip that I might otherwise forget. These are some of the pages I have done so far......

GCSE treats

Dan is almost at the end of his GCSE exams and considering he is only 15  (his school offer an accelerated curriculum) he has coped amazingly well...taking it all in his stride, he has studied hard and applied himself so well. I though it was therefore time for an after school treat........

They are white choc chip muffins topped with vanilla frosting and strawberry chocolate curls and fresh strawberries...he has a VERY sweet tooth so was delighted with them! Just had to make him a latte to complete the snack! I wonder how many weight watchers points they are? !! Maybe if I work REALLY hard at Zumba tonight I might be able to have one?

A great day out

I love half term......especially when the sun is shining, it makes me feel so happy and relaxed, and today was no exception, we went to Lydford Gorge for a nice walk, had a look at White lady falls and the Devil's cauldron, all of which were fab! We also sat in a bird hide for a while and saw several birds as well as some super cute squirrels...they kept us entertained for quite a while (will try to post some piccies tomorrow). On the way home we stopped off at the farm to pick some strawberries....YUM!
