CHA sneeks....

Have fallen in love with some of the new Cosmo cricket CHA releases, the colours are gorgeous, can't wait to get my hands on them!

I love the teal blue and greens in this collection, perfect for layouts of my boys.

Loving these embellishments!

Swoon! Am a button fiend!

More teal, and other gorgeous muted colours, yum!

Soo cute, would make a lovely travel journal.

I <3 these!!

Have you seen anything you fancy in the new releases? I need some more ideas!

Thats all folks xx

Got the bug!

I've decided whilst the mojo is back, I'll make the most of it! Have done 3 layouts over the weekend and today, it's unheard of! After another (unfruitful) trip to the dentist, I consoled myself with some sweet Pebbles papers that came in an album kit I bought before Christmas.(I'm not sure if the are still on, but TK Maxx had some amazing offers on AC album kits, got one for £3! Worth $50!) Here's today's...

I got the idea for this one from the Studio Calico design team gallery, the bright and zingy papers
are perfect for this summery picture of my sweet doggy.

This next one is of Dan's 17th birthday, depicting his special brand of silliness, I love that boy!

This was the result of the Sunday sketch from SC last week.

I couldn't work out how to make the photos small enough, so printed some wallet sized shots
from my phone.

Thats all folks xx

Circa 1934

This post will please my scrappy friend Tracee no end! I am posting on my blog for the first time since november, sometimes life just doesn't inspire, and your 17 year old nicks your camera for his A levels!! Well Scrapaholix was great on friday and as I haven't scrapped since November, was surprised at how easy it flowed. So much so in fact my Sis, Tracee and myself are subscribing to Studio Calico, I'm so excited!! If you want to see what you can do with these fab kits, just visit Lazy Dynamics on my blog list, she's done 14 layouts so far, and they're beautiful.

Our kit contained papers from the gorgeous Cosmo Cticket Circa 1934 collection (I had already bought this range from the GoGo getaway in oct) and went really well with the pictures I had chosen (well borrowed from my Sis, I forgot to take any!) 

Causing havoc in Cardiff!

I'm really pleased with this one, it just fell together really. Dan and the girls went to see Peter Kay in Cardiff and had a blast, this is his new fave T-shirt.

 Wanna Brew?

 I love how these papers can be masculine or feminine, just by the way you arrange them. This was taken at the GGgetaway, not very staged!!

 And one I did at home on saturday. I love these photos of Chewie, he's grown so much now, it's nice to look back. He's still a total cutie pie!!

 He loves my Dad.

Well, thats all folks! Cx
