One Sunny Day in Winter . . . . .

. . . .  I took this photo of Amy. We were sitting in the car outside the school waiting for Joe at the end of the day. The warm feel of the photo and the colours were perfect to go with these papers from October Afternoon and Cosmo Cricket which were in my August main kit from My Creative Scrapbook.

Sitting one evening and cutting out all the flowers was very relaxing and I love the look you get when you re-group them. I got so many from the sheet that there are leftovers to use another page or two.


This next page was done for the weekly challenge on UKScrappers which this week involved using no PINK! A challenge for me in itself. We had to use blue, 3 of 3 and a household item.

This is my page featuring a photo of Eugene and the boys taken in WDW Florida back in 2009. The papers are all scrap bits from my scraps box – something I am really conscious about using up at the moment as its getting pretty full!


I used blue, 3 brads, 3 butterflies and 3 hearts and my household item is the string.

Things are slowly getting better as each day passes by and I am really looking forward to my weekend retreat with the wonderful ladies from the Sketch & Scrap group, its just what I need right now. I have put together a few kits in the hope that I can beat my current personal best at a retreat which is standing at 8 layouts! Who knows.

Thanks for stopping by,

  5. Dee, I am so confused why do you have so many blog posts that I have not seen!?! I know I often end up going a few days without getting to catch up on blog posts but I must always do it whenever you post lol. Two fantastic layouts and I look forward to seeing you again, maybe I can beat my personal best of 1! :)
