About Me

Married to my soulmate with 2 beautiful girls,and our English Springer Spaniel, Suki. Living a country life in Cambridgeshire, whilst baking, gardening, and photographing our daily lifes, where they find a place on my scrapbook pages.

My little place on the web

This blog is just that, my little place on the web.You will find my daily (or not so daily, hehe)life, my love for my new vegetable garden, baking, photography and my scrapbooking!

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.

365'ers do it in Oxford!!

And did we have a good time or what!

I am always a little nervous meeting people for the first time, but as I walked into teh toom in Oxford at the David Lloyd Center at 11.40am, I was greeted with 12 lovely smiles and outstretched arms, lots of kisses and hugs!, and felt as if I had known these woman for ages. I came away at the end of the weekend with 12 wonderful friends, a wealth of inspiration from such a talented bunch, learnt to crochet, although I am useless, and I also played with stamps and felt tip pens (posh ones!), as well as eat and drink very well, hehehehe. I received a "gorgeous" badge from Shirley, and a lovely miniature rose from all the ladies.

Scrappers in action!

Ali, taking a photo of me, LOL

To, Shirl, Lynne, Sarah, Ali, Mary, Kath, Kay, Sally, Steph, Barbara, Paula, and Claire, thank you from the bottom of my heart for a weekend, I will not forget!

Getting all emotional by the beautiful words you ladies wrote

Sunday was Remembrance Day here in the UK, and I was glad to be part of a service in Oxford. Shirley and I popped outside from shopping at Stamp Addict, to walk with the possession and take part in the 2 minute silence.

After all my excitement from the weekend, Pencil Lines went live last night. Love this sketch by Cecile Lundstad. I used my Bad Girl Vintage Treasures kit (November's) and a wedding photo of me, teh Bride! First wedding photo I have scrapped , and it has given me the bug to start thinking about scrapping my wedding album in 2009.

Has anyone scrapped an album of their wedding? would love to see how you went about it.

I have had Izzy of school today. She was exhausted this morning, so the pair of us had a "duvet" day and watched a DVD whilst making felt tree decorations.... more of that this week!

I am tired from the weekend, and still have a few bits to do for my classes I am teaching at ATDML. I hear my classes are full, and am really looking forward to meeting familiar and new faces.

Finally , the winner of my RAK is (the number generator chose) "12"
Lucky reader is JENNYAP

Jenny please email me your address so I can post out your kit.
As always thanks for stopping by

    My kit arrived safely on Saturday - it's lovely! I've had my eye on those Sass Lass stickers for a while, so I'm especially looking forward to playing with them.
    Thank you so much :)
