..was the very first Big Event..and although unfortunately some were unable to attend because of this...

...from the feedback that we have received, we all still had a great day! Despite the weather, the hall was nice and warm and full of busy scrappers and a selection of shops. We had our four different classes...which went down well...

Lots of bust scrappers in the main hall..whilst others were busy in classes..

Karen's gift boxes class in progress...

Thank you to everyone who came along on the day and those that couldn't make it, we hope to see you next time. We can confirm that we have another event taking place on..

I really wanted to scrap a page of Lee's stay in hospital a few weeks back. I wanted the page to be decorative but also feature some information - I'm so bad at journalling!
I decided to use the Sarah's Cards sketch here..for this layout and my Minds eye Fine and Dandy papers here...the colours went so well with the picture. I stuck to the sketch, but flipped it round and only used one picture. Here it is...

...and some close ups...

Back this week, with another coupld of layouts and more news on 'The Big Event' which is one week away now! Arrrghh..wish me luck!

Lost and Found..

A few weeks ago I was sent some colour combinations for the Papermaze blog..
I chose one of them and came up with a layout. The layout that I created uses the MME Lost and Found collection and some stitching. Here it is...
I am going to frame this and give it to a friend (whose little girl it is)...
You can see more info on the colour challenges over on the scrap, paper, scissors blog here. You can also take part in the challenges and enter them for a chance to win a prize at the end of the month.
I'm off for a cropping day today followed by a baby shower...I feel like I haven't scrapped for a while, so I'm looking forward to today!
Happy Scrapping!

Catching Up...

Crazy, Manic and pretty darn busy, is how I would describe my life over the last 3 weeks, what with a scrapbooking weekend to prep for and go to, organising a scrapbooking event for later this month, working, me being poorly, Jack being poorly and Lee being in hospital......phheww!
So today I have decided to catch up all in one go...I have posted pictures of all of the layouts that I created during the scrapbooking weekend away 3 weeks ago. There are no close ups and very little information..so if you have any questions please feel free to leave a comment and I'll get back to you! I really love reading all of your comments :D So here we go..

These first two pages were created using pictures from our little holiday to Centre Parcs this year..Above Bella Blvd and below Jillibean Soup.

Below, a friends baby shower pictures, different sort of layout for me..lots of pictures..using Echo Park.
One of my current favourite lines..Cosmo Cricket..I lifted the squares idea from here.

More Bella Blvd..

My gorgeous boy..using some October afternoon...

A fairly quick one..using some Bo Bunny..

Loosing my mojo, by this point of the weekend..so not my favourite page..using some Cosmo Cricket..

Using some very lovely Crate Paper..cutting up the paper flowers/doilies..

One of my favourites, American crafts city park..

That's, all of them and I'm up to date :D

Check out the Big Event Blog, Lou has created her class, there is a sneak peak on the blog today.

See you soon with a layout in a frame for a gift that I made yesterday..

~Kit Projects~

I created two kits for the weekend away, finally nearly 3 weeks later..here they are:
The first is a tag made using a doily and lots of 3-D foam pads..You can see the other ladies version of them in the previous post..

Next up was a layout, using My little shoebox papers, its fairly simple but I think the ladies enjoyed creating it (again, in the post below)..

Speaking of kits, take a look at our crop kit for my scrapbooking event in Suffolk, later this month here..
See you soon
