Printers tray - finally!!

I lusted after and bought this so many moons ago and since then this lovely little 7Gypsies printers tray has been collecting dust.  Finally I have done something with it. The bonus is that I even like what I've done :) Obviously now I'm posting this I'm wishing I'd taken "before" pics...





Now just need to decide where to hang it and what to do with the other which is still collecting dust...

My Craft Room

Part of my new craft room (the tidy part) where I create, craft and relax.  More to come...

Why do I Scrapbook?

This weekend I've been blog hopping and found this challenge on the very talented Emilie Chamel's blog http://www.merlyimpressions.co.uk/blog/scrapbooking/july-2012-challenge/

This got me thinking about wht I actually do scrapbook and when I sat down to it I found enough inspiration for at least 2 layouts and could probably have written more as I kept thinking of things I'd forgotten! It also made me think about how similar many of our reasons for scrapbooking generally are (preserving memories, creating etc.) and yet how differently we approach the challenge of getting the scrapping done...  For myself, I only really scrap when I'm in the mood which technically means that however good my intentions are about preserving memories and writing things down for future generations in actual fact I only scrap little bits and bobs but hey - I enjoy it ;-)




Layout number one - first time I've used Simple Stories paper and gosh it's lovely stuff :-)






And sticking with the Simple Stories paper for my 2nd layout (it's just too lovely to put back in the box!!) here's a bit more of why I scrap :-)

Thank you all for looking.  Happy scrapping

Oldies but goodies

Having had no time to get anything new on here the past 2 weeks (my resolve to update frequently is already disappearing...) I'm uploading some old layouts which I have had knocking around for a while.  Sometimes things I did ages ago leave me cold but these I love :)

Only the cutest bridesmaid ever :)

Can't believe this was actually a year ago now but I'm happy to say we still get a lot of that cheeky grin.  Admittedly we also get quite a lot of tantrums and "you never let me do anyyyyyyyyyyyyyything"s (cue big teenage style strop) but it's nice to know there's a happy little smiler in there somewhere just finding her way in the big bad world.


Happy 1 year anniversary little sis!!

Pink and blue - eh??

Normally this would never happen.  I would not dream of teaming pale pink with dark blue but somehow here it is.  One of those happy scrapping accidents and I rather love it.


Yet more stitching!!

Too cool for school


This is a gem of a photo.  A classic shot of Snoop (lil bro) looking very chilled at lil sis's wedding.  Top photo taken by a very classy lady photographer and fabulous all round girlfriend Miss Sooz.

Hardly added anything to it and it's still a favourite.  Not my usual style as there's just not enough stuff on the page and nothing pink at that but I'm trying to get outside my box.

Still loving my Basic Grey papers and 7Gypsies stickers!
