Busy Times ....

Oh my gosh, I need to get back into my blog habit, i feel bad for not keeping up to my posts. Busy times but i still always manage to fit in some crafting. I had the build up to Scrapstars my craft retreat throughout January - March and managed to squeeze a holiday in their too. We had a week in Cape Verdi (our first visit there). I was trying to avoid a long haul flight just for a weeks holiday, (which we often end up doing because of the times of year we seem to book our holidays), so I thought we would give Cape Verdi a try (which still ended up being 5.75 hour flight)!  I liked the little town we were next to Santa Maria, and our hotel was beautiful and really clean, but boy the wind drove me mad. Too windy for me on some days however, I did manage to sit in the sun a little bit more, well more than my normal whole week underneath an umbrella! Here's a picture ....


My gorgeous mermaid toenails that Robyn did for me. x

Star Wars scrapping ....

I just had to scrapbook these photo's after a trip I took to Euro Disney last year with some friends. I struggled to come up with an idea, but on reflection perhaps planets and stars may have worked (that can be an idea for another time). So this is what i came up with, quite a simple layout really but the photo's of our most hilarious meet n greet at Disney, will always make me laugh out loud :)
I used the stampin up star mask to stamp the black background card with white or craft (as SU call it) ink.

Happy Halloween ....

well as you can see it has been some time since I blogged,  think I had blogged just about weekly for almost five years, but just recently it has fallen by the way side. I have been a busy bee as always and as most of you know my main crafting focus is around Scrapbooking, so before the current seasonal brochure ends, and as it is Halloween, I thought I should blog a layout I made a few weeks ago with the Spooky Night designer papers and Spooky Cat stamp set (page 53 of the seasonal)


It's a pretty simple page but I did enjoy using the stamp set more than I expected, and will show it on a further layout not related to Halloween in a future post ....

Delightful Daisy part 2 ....

what impressed me about this paper collection was the variety, the colours are beautiful and have created three very different colourways for these layouts all from the same pack ....
