My Scrapbooking

Scrapbooking is a way of life for me now.It has been for over 4 years. I love journaling, taking photos of my family and love colour and texture, these are all part of my everyday life and scrapbooking.

Its raining, its pouring....

typical British summer?! oh I so do hope not. It hasn't stopped raining here for what feels like days. I guess i shouldn't complain as I have plodded on with work that has needed to be done.

I also have a confession, I have signed up to Martha Stewarts newsletters, and have been inundated with the most mouthwatering recipes!!! Lemon squares and oatmeal and raisin cookies are the first on my baking list!
Now if by chance you are wondering why the absence?, well i spent last week teaching 45, 14 year old with learning difficulties at a nearby school about scrapbooking! And it was a real eye opener, and to see the joy at the end of the sessions on their faces , really did make it all so worth while. You see the first lessons didn't go too well, as no one at photos so they were left with an hour of mind mapping to do! But as soon as the next day approached and the stash was on the tables, aaahh well, the sounds of oooo, aaahhhh were heard around the room and silence as they all sat and scrapped to their hearts content!

Pencil Lines went live last night. I used a variety of different papers,and I cannot remember for the life of me the manufacturers! The photo is one of my 365's as I am a bit behind with my layouts, so i incorporated this weeks sketch for my layout 24.

Next Wednesday I am teaching at a Touch of Craft in Bury St Edmunds this mini book using Crate Paper. This will be my first monthly day class for Amanda, I am really looking forward to it!

Finally another one of my Bad Girls layouts using the July Kit. Fancy learning how to make this fabric flower? Then get yourself over to bad Girls where I will be doing a class this month.

I am off to catch up on uploading my 365 photos. Hope you all had a lovely weekend
Thanks as always for stopping by
