Love You

I recently found a whole box of old photos - in the "olden days" I used Doubleprint or even Tripleprint to develop my camera films and it was mainly the little photos that I found! I am delighted to be able to scrap photos of my teenagers when they were babies, makes up for some of the lost years!

So this layout was really quite simple, I found a 3 x 4 project life card and went from there!

Sorry for the slightly longer gap between posts, it's been rather eventful around here!  I had a wonderful long weekend away crafting with three other lovely ladies, and completed 12 layouts whilst away - will be popping them on here in due course.

My other big news is that I finally managed to persuade my hubby that we did "need" another dog! After two failed attempts (for various reasons) we rescued the most adorable little boy yesterday whom we have named Cooper.  No doubt there will be many pages featuring the little fella in the years to come!

This layout was done on the morning I was supposed to be packing to go away for the crafty weekend! Seemed a shame not to - good practise for the weekend ahead!!!

I was pleased with how this one turned out, the title card I had had for ages and was just perfect for this layout! I guess it helps too that I really love these papers (my minds eye Stella rose) but they are nearly all gone now :(

In this Moment

I used some REALLY old papers for this layout! Papers that I have had forever ... But still am very fond of!

The photo is also very old, of my mum and Derek, and I have had it in my pile of photos to be scrapped for ages, and finally it is in my album along with those lovely old papers :)

Sun kissed

So I found a pin on Pinterest that used the zig zag paper on this layout (crate paper the pier) only it was the other half, the blues and greens. I preferred the pinks for these little photos (and can still use the blues another time!)

Not one of my favourite layouts, which is a shame because the photos are too cute!

Little Man

Look how messy I got with this one!!! I sprayed and splatted and stamped all on one layout!!! Those are words I never expected to say!

I was using up some stickers and the last sheet of echo park paper I had and there it is! I quite like it! More words I never thought I would say!

A Family is a Patchwork of Love

I really like doing grid type layouts so this one was right up my street :)

This one is great for using up little bits and scraps (the middle square in the top row is a personal favourite and I now only have a square measuring about 4cm x 4cm)!

I love this photo of my two with their little cousins and although you can't tell, it was taken up in the trees on the tree top trail at Moors Valley!

Only One Noddy Slipper

Before I show you another layout that I did yesterday, I must apologise for how my photos are appearing on my blog - it's all good if you click on the photo but about a quarter of my photos are hidden. Not sure why, must be something to do with blogging from my iPhone ... I will try and fix this technical glitch!

So, I came across this photo from about 17 years ago and I love it so just had to scrap it!

This was created using a sketch from Pinterest, and mainly scraps from my scraps box (another new concept for me!)
