A Scrapbook Page and a Holiday Photo ............


Hi everyone, my blog has been quiet as we have been away on holiday to Majorca for a week.  We had a great time with lovely hot weather.   I can't believe how the weather has changed now we are home, we went away and left summer weather and it feels like Autumn since we have been home. I had to wear a fleece today for the first time in weeks!  Anyway I shouldn't complain as we have had a fairly good summer this year.

My layout is of a recent visit to a Dinosaur park.  I have not done a double page layout for ages but they are great for when you have lots of photos to scrap which always happen to me as I'm always busy snapping on days out.   The sketch is an older one from Shimelle.com.  I made another layout using this same layout from my holiday from last year but I will share that one with you later in the week.

The picture is one of the 3 of us on holiday.  Grace loved holiday so much she cried her eyes out on the night we got home as see wanted to go back to Majorca!

I hope to get caught up on all your blogs soon and see all your lovely makes!

Thanks for stopping by.

A Scrapbook Page ..............

Hi everyone,  I've a scrapbook page to share with you tonight that I made a few weeks ago now. These photos were taken at Grace's first ballet show last year. She is in the middle in both photos. Grace really enjoyed being in the show and it was certainly lovely for me to get to see Grace on stage.  Her and her little ballet friends were so sweet!

I'm sorry I've not been returning comments or doing much blogging but my Mum is in hospital at the moment with heart problems so I've been visiting nearly every night.  She is improving slowly but I'm not sure how much longer she will be in for.

Thanks for stopping by.

A Frozen Card and A Sweetie Cart



Hi everyone, I have a frozen card to share with you tonight which I made for my little niece Anya for her birthday a few weeks ago.  My little Grace and her cousin Anya are just mad on frozen so I thought I had to make a frozen themed card!

My blog has been quiet for the last few weeks as I've been very busy setting up a new sweet cart business with my friend.  We did our first fair yesterday with our sweetie cart selling sweetie gifts which was very good fun but it has been a lot of work so I've not got round to doing much blogging lately.  

This is a picture of our sweetie cart whom we have called Florence or Flo for short named after our favourite tea shop!

We think she is very pretty!


Thanks for stopping by!

Sitting Pretty .................

Hi everyone, I hope you are all having a good Sunday.  It is pouring with rain here in Norfolk today, please come back sunshine!  

I have a scrapbook page to share with you this morning which I have made to enter in the scrapbook challenges which were posted as part of a special scrapbook weekend over at Shimelle.com.  I followed a great sketch to make my layout up and I would like to enter my layout into the 'All Lined Up - Sketch to Scrapbook page' challenge which you can see here.

I really struggled to get a good picture of my layout as it is so dark and dull outside!
