Family page

This photo was taken of me and my two wonderful kids on Hayling Island in July 2006.

I just love the bright sunshine and clear blue sky, so typical of that holiday.

The blue cardstock is DCWV white core (and for once I didn't distress it to reveal the core!) The scalloped circle I love was a Rhonna Farrer. The black chipboard is Cosmo Cricket - this stuff is GREAT!!!! I just tarted it up a touch with a silver metallic pen. Adding a little doodling to finish it off. Ribbons from Ribbon Mad

Tribute Page

When we were on holiday in Portsmouth in 2006, we came across these two bronze statues. One of the 'Unknown Solider' and the other of 'Monty'. These are my tributes to those soldiers who lost their lives so that we may live in peace today and to 'Monty' who led our troups to victory in World War II, despite far too many of our guys being lost in battle.

Black background is Bazzill, the rub ons and journalling tags were from Fancy Pants, blooms from Dunelm and Prima.

April Studio Calico Kit

I was a little bit naughty this month and treated myself to the wonderfully gorgeously scrummy Studio Calico kit. It was all that naughty Kirsty Wiseman's fault you know. She raved so much about it, I just had to! But I'm glad that I did!

These were the LOs that I managed to do on Saturday at the Penkridge crop and a Jules' house afterwards.

For the list of goodies used, you'll just have to go and visit the Studio Calico site. As I can't remember what paper was on what used on which layout to be honest!

I am sooo tired! But it was worth it!!

I didn't get to bed until about 2.30 this morning so am so bloody tired now!

Why did I get to bed so late? Because I met up with these three lovely ladies, that's why! We are all Craft-ED consultants and have met up at our various training days. We've established a lovely friendship too. All very similar in nature and sense of humour - not always ladylike either! ;-) From the left is Jules, Hannah and Steph.

I have a MAHOOSIVE thank you to say to the lovely Jules and her kids; Jamie who stayed at his friend's house so that the busty blonde (Hannah) could sleep in your bed. Frankie who stayed at her nan's with her little sister Izzy so that I could sleep in her bed and Jules who gave her bed up to Steph and slept on the sofa bed in the study. Thanks Jules for putting up with us all. You have the most inspriational house that I have ever been into. There are examples of your wonderful work everwhere. I bow to your superior mojo!




We had a lovely day, Jules, Steph and myself at a crop in Penkridge. Then it was back to Jules' house to wait for Hannah to arrive before nipping to the pub down the road for dinner (YUM!). We were all desperate to get back to Jules' house, change into our PJ's and then crop/talk/laugh/take the p*ss out of each other until the wee small hours.

I can't believe I actually managed to make 4 pages last night!!!

I was going to share a photo of me being very silly, but bugger that! I've seen it and it's awful!

I'll post piccies of my LO's when I've photographed them.

Craft-ED Products

I came across these two photos last night when I was looking for something else. They were begging to be scrapped. They were taken aboard our friends' cruiser "New Life" when she was moored at Fotheringhay (famous for where Mary Queen of Scots was beheaded and buried).

All paper/card products are from DCWV - available from Craft-ED. Contact me for details. The wave, flower paper clip and tab are cut using a Sizzix dies.

Spinnaker Tower

I love these two photos of the Spinnaker Tower in Portsmouth. They were taken during our holiday in 2006. It looks so different by day and by night. A truly stunning building and such a landmark too.

We took the lift to the viewing decks and we all bravely attempted the 'walk of faith' across the glass floor. The weather was truly gorgeous and clear; the view magnificant!

Background card is DCWV and the papers are from the BasicGrey Cupcake range. The little envelope is cut using a Sizzix die which encloses the journalling.

After a hot walk through the woods.... we find a playground.

These photos were taken in 2006 on holiday in Fareham, Hampshire. We were staying on the Caravan Club site at Rookesbury Park. The weather was unbelieveably hot and we thought we'd go through the shade of the woods for a walk. 2 hours later, all of us very hot and tired, we came to a clearing at the top of the hill to find a play park. I can't believe that the kids still had enough energy to play, but they did, before we all had a nice, cooling ice cream. Maisy too!

Papers and embellie bits are from BasicGrey Cupcake range and DCWV. Highlighted the hearts and the ice lolly with Glossy Accents. Ric Rac from stash.

Hello Mojo!

Well, I'm glad to say that my mojo has returned. I feel that it's been hiding for a little while - norty mojo!

I sat down on Friday night determined to make a page and made three pages!

Thanks to Steph's pleading to send me vibes for my mojo to return. Looks like it worked hun!

Background is DCWV white core. Everthing else is from the gorgeous BasicGrey Cupcake collection with the exception of the ribbon which came from Ribbon Mad.
