Phew.....

I scrapped!

I was seriously worried after the BIG CLEAN that I wasn't going to get scrapping again!! I really did not want to make a mess in my fabulous looking room! And even worse I didn't seem to have any creative sparks flying!

BUT I am happy to announce that this weekend I have SCRAPPED! YAY!!!

Nothing that flash but I am always happy to have recorded the memories!


This one is of our trip to the zoo on the holidays with my mum and nephews. I had the photos sat there for 2 weeks so was glad to get this one done. It was a bit tricky with all the colours and so many photos so I just kept it simple. The ledger paper is by Mustard Moon

oops.. zoo is off to be published!!

This one is pretty simple too - some really pretty Creative Imaginations Scalloped Ledger paper and some scraps of my favourite SEI - Penelope's Potpourri.
I am really into ledger paper at the moment as an alternative to card stock - it is still quite subtle but a little bit interesting.

And you can see I have just bought a bit of Scalloped Paper by Creative Imaginations this week...lol...when I got this very green green I thought I had made a bit of a mistake but then I riffled through my photos and found this one I printed two months ago but hadn't found anything to go with it! Grabbed a bit of scrap pp by 3 Bugs in a Rug and some We R Memory Keepers words that I didn't have any idea what to so with, did a bit of stitching and journalling and voila - a layout!

And this layout using more scalloped paper and some Scenic Route...of my fabulous little stunt woman mentioned in the previous post!

This layout has gone to For Keeps for publication .....

SO I really have been scrapping this weekend and am pretty chuffed! Hope you have had a good and productive weekend - Lissy

PS... the scrap room has survived...a few things to put away but it is still looking pretty good!!

ok I have to confess every single time I see the pic of E on top of the car [no matter what the angle] I cant stop laughing!

She is just fantastic Lissy, any kid that would do something as cool as that is just awesome and defintely a stunt woman in the making.

Funny I dont remember you climbing on the roof of the car coming back from retreat, so I am assuming she gets it from Ben.

Wonderful layouts as always but I love the Zoo one.
