a new project

Make sure you pop across to Shimelle tomorrow to check out what new project she has in store. A beautiful mess is hosting a 24 hour blog party from 12.01am, which might be worth a look too.

Another layout i've completed this week using the gorgeous hoot paper from Adorn It.

Beach or Pool!

For me it has to be the beach.. where else would you find a good old british beach hut!!

















imagine....a hot summers day....kids playing on the beach.....relaxing....taking photos and somewhere in that tiny hut there is room for a table and some scrap supplies. ummm.

Apart from dreaming of my beach hut, the last few weeks have been busy.












We managed an all day crop - at home - a little cramped, but productive and relaxed.
Tanya we know you're there, somewhere. You must have quietly slipped off when the camera came out!!

I made a few purchases of some hoot hoot papers.

















When you buy such lovely paper what do you do with it. ummm, it was a struggle - but simple is best.

Prints

I ordered some more photos over the weekend, and then released that I hadn't used any of the photographs I had printed last time. So I had a quick look through and selected a few that I really wanted to create layouts with and here they are. Quick and easy


















I tried to put the music page together a while ago but couldn't get it right. So it went back into my case for a month or so. After remembering I purchased an old music book from a second hand book shop, I tried again. (and who's to know its piano music!!)














I wanted to share one of my favorite layouts this month, although one of my darling sons said I looked pregnant in is this photo - I can assure you it's the bags I was carrying! Shadow photos are cool photos to take and for once the boys agreed to having their shadow taken without any moaning and groaning.

Before I go I just want to say that the one thing that really disappoints me with my layouts is the journaling, I know i'm not along when i say i'd rather not write on a LO - but I do, because I force myself too and then think oh no i've ruined it! So tonight i'm off in search of some information that might be of help. I'll let you know how I get on.

Happy National Scrapbook Day

There's lots going on today in the scrapbook world to celebrate NSD - lots of sites and blogs are offering free scrapbook stash just for leaving a comment.

I wanted to share some photos with you today, these were taken by Harry (age 10) on his recent trip to London - I think in future i'll get him to take my photos!





















































I should have taken a photo of the look on his face when I told him I used to go to school on those open back buses!!!
