The MOJO is definitely coming back and the urge to scrap just for the sake of it feels great. I have sorted out tons of photo’s for scrapping ranging from way back when the kids were babies right through to up-to-date holiday photo’s from this summer.

These snaps of Joe were taken at the ferry port in Stranraer, Scotland. There is a fabulous park just next door to the port where we spent a few hours picnicking while we waited for our ferry home. Amy and Tony both had so much fun on the zipline while Joe stood by watching. He wanted to have a go so so much but thought he would look foolish after all he is so grown up at 16½!!   The urge got the better of him and after much teasing from Dad he jumped on and had a go. Then another go. And another go!  I got some great action photo’s.

Anyhow, here is the LO:



I created the background using an inking technique I saw over on the My Creative Scrapbook blog. The circles were cut from Cosmo Cricket Odds & Ends which I got in a kit from Gottacraft as were the journaling strips.

Subscriptions, Subscriptions . . . . . .

Yep thats right – I have just subscribed to 2 new (well new to me!) kit clubs. After a hellish few weeks and a severe case of mojo-itis  I decided I needed something new and exciting to look forward to so I have been browsing this wonderful World Wide Web and finally decided on these 2 kit subscriptions:


I cant wait to get hold of my first kits and get scrapping!

In the meantime I have a couple of LO’s to share which I have done for various  challenges over on UKScrappers.

The Wet Look – week 2

Photo’s are of Tony trying to put on his wetsuit. I thought he looked real funny so decided to take pic’s but when he realised I was taking the pic’s he started to pose!  I really love this LO, the photo’s are such fun and Im pleased with the way the whole thing came together.


Dont You Look Smart – week 3

Another LO featuring Tony DS2. This time with Richard, his sponsor at his confirmation last year. Part of the challenge for this week was to use black cardstock which I really like as its so striking.


Make Yourself @ Home – week 4

Photo of my darling Joshua fast asleep on my craft room chair. The theme for this weeks LO had to be Home / Home is where the Heart is. I chose this pic of Joshua as my chair is like his 2nd home, he is always in it. Another criteria was to use our favourite colour – hence the PINK overload! The cat embellishment in the bottom right corner was a gift from my UKS teamie Heather. I smothered him in paint then dunked him into purple glitter to make him co-ordinate with the LO.


And finally, Viva Las Vegas – August House Challenge

The theme this month was holiday snaps so a perfect chance for me to scrap some of my many many Las Vegas photo’s. I wasn’t particular fond of the sketch we had to use but thats all part of the challenge I suppose and that said Im pleased with the way the LO finished up.

Sketch & Scrap Time

Its August 1st so that can only mean Sketch & Scrap time. Here is the sketch for this months LO :

S&S July

And here is my interpretation :

Always x


I kept to the sketch almost exactly  this time with just one slight change, substituting one of the photo spaces with a poem.

The photo is one of our wedding pics which I converted into black and white.

The background stamp,butterflies and ‘Bliss’ are all Stampin’ Up stamp sets.
