Christmas Tree Decorations

I came across these a few weeks ago and thought the boys would love to make some.....just the thing for a wet and cold Sunday afternoon.

(a rather slightly out of focus photo)
The star shape was a little tricky. I have a board that you poke metal rods into and wind the wire around, after a lot of effort trying to get the rods in the right place I managed to make the star shape (((its only slightly ski wiffy))). Then a little man came along and decided to rearrange the rods............mmmm I wasn't amused!!! So the later ones made were wound into a spiral circle shape.
Quite a pretty addition to the Christmas Tree.

Sweet Child of Mine....

( guns and roses)

....if only that were true, those of you who know Stan know he's better suited to the Devil in Disguise!

Don't you just sometimes feel like the worst mum in the whole world.......or maybe it's just me.

Last week I was sorting through the chest I keep all my scrapbooks in when Stanley asked to see his book...........yikes!! after two boys I couldn't face another baby boy album so I never done one.

I know I know.....It's not all bad I do have layouts of Stan over the past five years. It's not that I never done any, its that I never got around to putting all the layouts into an album just for him. Try explaining that to a five year old!! It didn't go down well.

So now I am on a mission to put together a 12 x 12 book just of Stanley.........and believe me he is making sure it happens. Everytime I sit down he asks if i'm doing his baby photos!

Here's the first few. Lovely minds eye papers, bazzil cardstock, American craft and mm letter stickers.

sweet child of mine

Beautiful Stanley

So much to love about you

Its that time of year again to be thinking about Journal your Christmas. Pop over to Shimelle's blog to read all about it.

Only four more weeks left on my photography course, and whilst i can now use my camera in manual mode and take some......i think.....rather reasonable photographs, i still have an awful lot to learn.

Here's hoping that everything clicks together over the next four weeks.

Two photo's i took at Centre Parcs.

Happy Anniversary

On the 25th October...1969 my mum married my dad.
A 40th Wedding Anniversary wouldn't have been the same without marking the occasion, so a little something just had to be scrapped.

Happy Anniversary mum and dad, love you lots xx

PS. Keep your eyes peeled for when i post our Centre Parcs pictures!!
PPS. Album by Kaiser Kraft with K and Co papers.

a - z of me.

I promised the girls that I would post some pictures of them. The idea behind this mini project was for the girls to think of a word beginning with each letter of the alphabet that best describes them. There were some brilliant ideas and I look forward to seeing the finished albums.

Summer Scraps

Based on a 8.5 x 11 summer album I'm putting together i challenged the girls on Sunday to scrap a layout using the items given to them in the post below. Here are some of the layouts i created using Kraft card, a sheet of patterned paper, paint, ink, bubble wrap, acetate, string, cardboard and pages from an old book.
