More from yesterday..

Helloo all,

Just going to show you a few recent LO's mainly from yesterdays crop day at Otley.

This page is a page that made using some pictures from Nicoles leaving meal in January. I used an older range of papers - that I cannot remember the name of, but they are very pretty.

These next two pages are the last two pages that I needed to finnish off my 2009 album.
This page is one that I made for New Years eve, using some leftover bits of paper and some new making memories tags- how cute are they!?

This page is the second to last page for my 09 album - its using pictures from boxing day and the left over papers from papermaze's December crop kit. Glad these two pages are out of the way now, as they seem like ages ago now, and they finnish off an album!
Last page that I am going to show today is from a workshop at Papermaze that me and my mum went to on Wednesday night..its a beautiful page. I automatically wrote 'created by anna parker' when infact it wasnt at all, ignore that! Credit goes to Wendy for another fantastic page! I love the windmills, you will definatly be seeing me using them lots on my pages now!

Lastly, I had some more great news again today scrapbooking wise! I have been chosen to be a guest designer on the banana frog blog! So looking foward to that - thank you for choosing me! :D

Very Happy!!

Well yesterday I went to the Otley crop day..when I arrived one of my scrapbooking buddies - Penny - congratulated me. I was I had no idea..but turns out one of my layouts had been published in this months scrapbook trends...

Very chuffed/happy/excited about this! When I got home from the crop day I also had an email waiting to tell me that one of my LO's is going to be used in the scrapbook inspirations idea book - which is out in May!
So a great day for scrapbooking yesterday! I also made 3 pages at yesterdays crop and got all of my bits for next weeks kit!
Be back soon! xxxx

Valentines Layout :) Finnished..

So here is my finnished valentines layout, seems like I have been working on this page forever - but anyway, its done now! Yay!
In my last post I takled about making kits for this page...I have been told that I need to make more kits than I had orignally planned, more work, but it must be a complement!
One reader of my blog will still be in with a chance of winning one - if there are any left over - so keep your eyes pealed.
Anyway here it is - unfortunatly can't show you the whole page just yet!
All finnished - just got to make the kits! :D

And here is a card that I made with the leftovers - to give to Lee on valentines day!

On Saturday night I had a fab night out with the work ladies for Julies surprise 50th party! It was such a great night and very posh - we had a lovely two course sit down meal and a band to dance the night away to!
Here are some of my favourite pics out of the lots and lots that I took in total!

Thanks for looking - be back soon xx

a sneak..

Just popping in...
Here is a sneak peak of something that I am working on at the moment. I am working on a Valentines layout, using the Making memories love struck range.
The picture below shows a mini book that is going to be on this page.

I am also going to be making kits with instructions on how to make this page for the next crop day that I attend. It is going to be a trial run - so I am only making a few - in preperation for another one/possibly two kits that I am going to be making for a scrapbooking weekend away! Vey exciting! So basically I am making them to see the response that I get from them and what I could work on for the kits for the weekend!
And..if I have a spare kit left over I will be giving it away free to a reader of this blog... so watch this space!

Thats all for now...xx

A fairy short post today...
I have been at work quite a bit this week, which has been good so far - but not much time for scrappy things - except another card! I have also started to work on a page, but its not quite there yet.
So Monday morning started off with a lovely parcel from the postman with some bits that I ordered a couple of weeks ago from Capture the Magic. I mainly wanted to order some of the doodlebug little letters as I love them sooo much but no where local to me stocks them...but as you can see I did end up getting a few more bits including some stamps! I am really getting into stamping latley!

..and I used one of the stamp frames to make this card for Jacks keyworker at nursery as it was her birthday yesterday. It literally took me about half an hour, but I am pleased with it and she loved it too!

I ran out of room on the front to actually write 'happy birthday' lol...but i used one of the inside instead!

I used this sheet of paper by fancy pants for the background and the flower in the middle and this was the stamp.
Jack is not feeling too good this evening - my poorly little boy hope he gets better soon! xxx
Be back soon
