With You

I love this photograph that I took on the Metro (like the Underground) of my mother Grace and my grandson Jacob.  My mother will readily admit that it’s not often nowadays that she take a good photograph so I was ‘over the moon’ with this photograph of them both and love the colour tone of it as well

To put this layout together I used sketch 107  from Creative Scrappers as inspiration, I also used challenge 17 from Scrap it with a Song to help with the  layout title – using lyrics from the song: With You by Jessica Simpson.

To put this layout together I used:

Label Holder -Making Memories – Rectangle – Honeydew

Journaling Block – Making Memories – Noteworthy-Delaney

Scalloped Border – Papermania – Hampstead Glitter Transfers

Green Patterned Paper – BoBunny – Kiwi Double Dot

Star Brads (velvet) – Animal Crackers – Jack

Alphas – Thickers Foam  – Cream Soda – White

Patterned Paper – Flair Designs – Precious Grandkids

Ribbon from a local haberdashery

Fibres (free with an order)


I really enjoyed creating this layout and I think it must be my favourite so far.

I hope you like it.

A day without scrapping is like a day without sunshine!


Graduation Card

This is a quick Graducaiton card I made fora work colleague with Karen Fosters Graduation patterned paper and cardstock stickers.

I also used a page from an old book, cream base cardstock and gold border peel offs.

I have been itching to use this Karen Foster kit for ages but nobody until now has graduated.  I would so chuffed to finally get a chance.

Hope you like it.


Birthday Card by Grace

This is the birthday card that my mother made for my son Jason.

I love the silver and blue combination.

Lovely card Grace, very sparkly.

Hope you like it


Birthday Card – Son

It is my sons birthday coming up and as always I was stuck on what to do for his birthday card.  I think male cards are always harder to make anyway.

I decided I wanted to make an easel card as I havnt made one before and it didn’t look hard to make.

I used some instructions from the ‘Whiff of Joy blogspot’ which were really good. Thanks Jacqui. xXx.

I found the card quite easy to make and the instructions easy to follow.

I hope you like it


Top Ten………Worst Movies

Hi, welcome to another ‘Top Ten’.  I thought instead of doing ‘best’ things/people, etc I like that it would be a change to do a ‘worst’. So here goes.

1. 2012 (This was the first flim I had seen at the picutres for well       over a year due to having a problem with my coccyx and not being able to sit down for very long.  I love a good disaster movie, but this wasn’t one of them, what  let down.  It was so cheesey and unbelievable.  Never again!)

2. Van Helsing

3. Howard the Duck

4. Flood

5. Alien Resurrection

6. Hudson Hawk

7. Swept Away

8. Waterworld

9. Aliens Vs Predators

10. Zodiac Killer

Thats mine.   I would to hear your own worse films.

Bye for now


Cousins Layout-Sketch

This is another layout where I have used a sketch.  This one came from Scrap Tiffany’s Blog -see the post for Monday, August 02, 2010 (Week #31 Challenge, Part 1).

I have  been sorting throught some old photos recently and found this one taken a few years ago.  The photo is of my cousin Steven and me at my other cousins (Kevins) wedding.  I think it is a lovely photograph of us both and I thought it definately deserved to scrapped.

I really enjoyed putting this layout together and using the sketch.

Layout created using:

BoBunny Chunky Charms – Swirls and Brackets

American Crafts Medium Jewel Brads – Aqua & Mulberry

12 x12 CK Margo Vintage Vine Glitter Paper

BoBunny My Darling Cut Out (Circle)

K & Company Wedding Tag Pad

Papermania Adhesive Pearls – Red

Anyway I hope you like my layout.

A day without scrapping is like a day without sunshine!


I Heart New York

I bought the recent copy of Glamour Magazine and this book came with it!!

For some reason; when I get a book with a magazine I assume it won’t be up to much and normally stick it on my bookshelf to gather dust.

On this occasion I didn’t and I am so glad as it was a a fantastic read, some much so that it has prompted me to buy the other two books which follow on, which are ‘I Heart Hollywood’ and ‘I Heart Paris’.

If you are after some light reading that is light hearted, amusing and funny then I would totally recommend this book.  I cannot wait until the other two arrive and I will let you know what I think of them in due course.

Goodbye for now. xXx
