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.

Happy NSD

blogged by me domestic goddess On 5/01/2010 05:09:00 PM
Its National Scrapbook Day, and all us scrappers around the world will be scrapping, taking classes, joining crops and blog hopping to their scrappy hearts content!

I had planned to do a class online to celebrate, but my delay returning home has put that on hold. BUT Nikki Sivils is holding a giveaway where a lucky winner from each DT's blog will get a complete line of "Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker" paper collection of your choice!!! So the more Nikki Sivils DT blogs you visited and leave a comment, the more chances you have of winning a paper collection of your choice. I have links to all the DT's blog at the bottom of this page :)

All I ask you to do to win a collection from my blog is;

: become a follower of my blog
: tell me what Nikki Sivils collection is your favourite

Easy eh! Nikki is also looking for 20 new designers, and international are welcome to apply. Check out the link for details.

A few blog posts ago, I mentioned that I went to a crop in Orlando at Scrappy Boutique. I had a great time, met some fab ladies and spent too much money on lots of gorgeous product. I also managed 2 layouts.


This is an 81/2" x 11" layout. Photo is of Izzy at World Showcase in Epcot. I have yet to add journaling to this layout.

Supplies: Bazzill cardstock, Basic Grey papers and journaling tags, Jenni Bowlin bunting stickers and mini alphabet, Making Memories embossed flower.

My Spring Flowers

A 12" x 12" layout, using another photo from Disney. I just had to cut this sprig of flowers from this BG paper!

Isnt this ribbon just heavenly! I bought it in every colour *blushes*

Supplies : Bazzill cardstock, Basic Grey papers, Jenni Bowlin butterfly, America Crafts thickers, Websters ribbon, Prima calico tag

I use D-Ring albums, and these 2 layouts will sit side by side, as a double layout would.

Hope you are enjoying your Bank Holiday weekend. Anyone have plans other than scrapping?
We are planning a night watching Avatar :)

Thanks for stopping by

    Hi Anna, love your spring layouts, so sweet! Tricky picking just one favourite, but I'll go with'Will He B the one' even though I don't have a boyfriend to scrapbook! That's what's great about Nikkis lines, they are so versatile. I've been trying to get my hands on some NS, but have only managed to find one UK stockist which only carries willow bee, if you could point me in the direction of any uk online shops that stock Nikki Silvils I'd be really grateful. Thanks!
