It's taken me 6 years !!!!

Now that the teacher gifts are made, wrapped & ready to be delivered I have spent the last couple of days scrapbooking. We had these photo's taken when Alex was 10 days old, he went 6 in June !!!!, so for the past 6 years they have been in a box & I thought it was about time they had their moment.

I have looked through countless magazines, scoured the cricut message board for hours at a time looking for some inspiration. I knew that I only needed to use 1 photo per page because the photo's speak for themselves, but I wanted 2 completely different looks.

The "you colour our world" page I found a very similar one on the cricut messageboard, so I have scraplifted her idea (I think she is called Michelle, but I can't get back onto the board to check) and the 2nd page, I saw the folded window in a magazine (not sure which one, as I seem to have read hundreds!!) and then used prima flowers to accent it all.

I am really pleased with how both pages have turned out, just sorry it took me 6 years to get there !!!!!

Where does time go !!!

Can you believe it, it's been over a week since my last posting. We have had such a busy week though, what with work, 2 school sports days, boys brigade sports day, MRI scans (another story!), the cricut messageboard, as well as all the everyday things that us busy mum's have to do. It's not suprising that I haven't had chance to pop by for a chat.

Never mind I'm here now and in and amongst all the sport (OMG I ran the mums race !!!, that's a whole other story though, & one that I probably won't be sharing lol!!!) & everything else I have managed a couple of craft projects.

I have made a little tag album using my sizzix, which I will probably give my neice for her 16th birthday (ohh to be 16 again!!!) and the other project is called a Finnish Star, one of the ladies at my local crop sent me the link ( ), and with one sheet of double sided 12 x 12 paper you can create this master piece. It took a little time but I am really pleased with the end result. I think these would make brilliant christmas (ohhh that word again!!) decorations as well, using the right coloured papers, but I suppose that will be here before we know it. Like I said in my title, Where does time go !!!
