Favourite Layout

I went to a scrapbook class at my local craft shop on Saturday and I made my favourite LO. I was using the sketch given in March 08 issue of Scrapbook Inspirations. I made it a double LO instead. I love the colour of the water in the pool - it is just so blue and makes me want to go on holiday soon!

Layouts at last!

I've finally managed to start scrapping for myself again now! I made 5 paperbab albums as gifts for Christmas and spent months finishing them. Now I can get going with Claudia's album again. I've so many pages left to do to cover her first year. Here are the latest four that I've made. The one with the star I sort of scraplifted from a LO my friend Sharon did of her boy. I used my cricut to make the title. The other 3 pages were done using a kit called flutterby.

I enjoyed making these LO, but I want to improve my style and make it a bit more modern and funky. I really need to get some chipboard alphas, do more with inks and fibres ..................

Making Thank You Cards

I always like to send thank you cards whenever I get presents and now I've got to do them on behalf of Claudia too! It maybe wasn't such a good idea having a baby 3 weeks after Christmas!!

Here are the digital cards I made for both cards.....

Countdown to Christmas

My Christmas countdown has well and truly started! I finally got round to making my Christmas card and have taken it to the printers for them to make up the cards. It's too much effort for me to print them out!!! Hopefully I'll have them back soon so that I can get them written out and posted before I go on holiday on the 1st of December. I'll have to do all my Christmas shopping by then too. I love Christmas shopping, but what I love the most is WRAPPING PRESENTS!! I wish I could open a shop just at Christmas time and wrap other other peoples presents!!

Scrapping at last!!

Yay - finally managed to do some scrapping today. My sister and I organised a crop at our church hall and lots of fellow scrapping enthusiasts joined us. It was great to see everyone's stuff - I'm always envious when I see other work!! Here are some pictures of us hard at work (I'm behind the camera!)

Princess Claudia

Picked up the latest photos of my little girl yesterday from the photographers. I'm delighted with them! These were the second set of photographs we had taken. The last ones will be done when she is walking. I love the picture of her in the bath surrounded by balloons!

I'm trying to get my picture on my profile and according to the instructions I must first post one to my blog. So here goes.............

Yummy Cupcakes

Last night I made yummy cupcakes for my lovely husband! I got the recipe from Shimelle Laine's blog. There were so many lovely recipes to chose from, but in the end I settled for the serious chocolate cupcakes!

The smell as they were baking in the oven was amazing and they tasted scrumptious too! NOT good for my weight watchers diet.

Got to get scrapping!

I can't believe that October is more than half way through and that it will soon be CHRISTMAS!!!!!!!! I'm making paper bag albums of my little girl as presents for family and I've got FIVE to do. I've finished one and am currently working on number two. I must get a move on!!!
