Another for the New Year....

Another Digi tonight..... I love the Websters Pages Digital photo frames, and can't help playing with them! Turned this one into a paper rather than just a frame. More photos of Ross & Duffy the Bear.

Perhaps I will manage some "real" layouts now that I seem to have the "bug" back. Ross and I will be taking the Christmas tree down on Monday, so I plan on taking some closeups of the decorations. I've not been in the spirit this Christmas, but I don't want to let it slip away completely un doccumented.

Catch you in the New Year.... of course for me that is only 1 hour and 10 mins away!

Something for Christmas !

Not "real" scrapping, just a little Digi.... but it's taken me ages....LOL.... I'll get used to Windows 7 someday, but for now even the simplest things are a challenge.

2011 is almost at a closs and I would like to take this opportunity to wish all of my "scrappy" friends a very good 2012 when it arrives.... who knows we may even get around to scrapping!

My not so "little" boy with Mickey and Duffy at Disneyland Paris earlier this month.

Used a Websters pages free digi sheet and some other older digi christmas images of various origines.

Yeh I scrapped.....

Ross was sick during the night so I had an unexpected day off work.... so I scrapped! YEH!!!

When I printed out the photos I did not like the ones I posted before.... so I used more from the 50 or so that we took at the Mirazozo exhibit during the Edinburgh Festival this summer. If anyone ever gets the chance to go to this do it... it's wonderful. So much colour, beautiful restful music and such an amazing experience.

Pure Colour.

Wow what happened???

July was my last post... really? Where did 2011 go?

It's November and all I've posted all year is a single LO....well that could of course be becaues that's pretty much all I've done.

I said 42 would be better than 41.... boy was I tempting fate.

I'm determined to scrap some of this years photos very soon as I actually have some lovely ones I really like. Hopefully inspiration will strike soon and all that paper and other "pretty" stuff will stop languishing in boxes.

A couple of photos to share..... let's hope they are attatched to some paper soon.

Blog Candy from Jak heath

I've not likek my blog to much "candy" in a while.....well let's be honest I've not been "blogging" in a while either!

But I did see this one on Jak Heath's blog today. Go have a look.

Year 41.... RUBBISH 42 will be better!

Rubbish pretty well sums up my 41st year! Accidents, Money Worries, Work issues, life balance issues..... So

42 WILL BE BETTER. In actual fact it has started wonderfully.

last Saturday was my Birthday and we had a wonderful day out with friends. Bargain Shopping (always good), although it was in a favourite shop which is closing down (sad bit), Spring faire in the town where our friends live, and a lovely dinner at their place in the evening.

On Wednesday I was on a day off and went to Lagny Sur marne to the most wonderful French Market, and visited a new Scrap Shop which is beautiful (and a loss less expensive than Paris!). Tea in the local Bar which is run by a Brit, Lunch by the river marne. Perfect! In the afternoon swimming as a family.

Today (friday) I'm off again. Plans so far...... finish window boxes (I bought beautiful flowers at the faire on Saturday). Bit of cleaning then Scrap, Scrap, Scrap.

42 will be better.

Oh I hurt all over

Yester day I had another Oops.......

I fell inside the bus! The floor was wet and when the bus stopped I slipped and fell on my back. That was Ouch enought but things got worse when I was in the office....... to the point where I ended up being stretchered out in front of all of my team!

This morning I've woken up feeling a lot more sore than yesterday. My arm, hip and "rear end" are brused, but the worst is my neck. I feel like it's frozen and moving in certain ways sends shooting pain up the back of my head.

My 41st year has not been my best! Bring on my 42nd, let's hope it's a bit more accident free!

1st New Year post and 1st Layout in FOREVER!!

Happy New Year.

2010 was a year filled with lots of events, but not much creativity on my part, so to start off my 2011 in the way I mean to go on....... Here is my first Layout of the year.

As every year I do a LO using a Christmas card. This years selection of cards received seemed very apt for the situation we all found ourselfs in...... Deep snow! Seems like the card companies must have had some prior warning of the weather...LOL....

Ice Blue Bazzil which I stamped with silver shadow ink snowflakes. I then added snowflake semi opaque glittered peel offs, Basic Grey letter stickers which I covered with diamond stickles and two hand cut snowflake freezes which I covered in winter white embossing powder (these came from a book I received last year of Kirigami designs).
