Scrapstars #2 ....

so a full week has passed and I have just about sorted my craft room after all the boxes were unceremoniously dumped in there! I was looking back at my layouts, and just had a quick play with scraps from one of the kits. The original layout (designed by Morag Cutts) was made using the Simple Stories Domestic Goddess range. I loved Morag's layout and used photo's of my friends and I crafting (something all of us would rather be doing than Housework). I decided to make a further layout from scraps for my daughters album, using the same theme of Housework ! (not today).....
Morag's original (I haven't photographed mine)


My layout from leftovers, just need to add Robyn's photo :)

Scrapstars ....

It's been a busy few weeks since my holiday with the build up to my retreat Scrapstars. Another fabulous fun weekend, with masses of creativity, fantastic teachers, and great projects. I love the weekend and it has been wonderful to meet up with people that I now consider to be friends, and to meet and make new ones ....

AWOL ....

well what can I say, I have been absent for a whole month, I can't believe it and how the time has flown. Having said that, I was rather busy for a week before my holiday and then spent a wonderful 2 weeks in sunny Florida. It was a holiday of two halves, in our first week my nephew, his wife and their two children joined us for their first trip to Disney World. Although we have been to Florida a number of times, we haven't "done Disney" since our first trip in 1999. It was lovely to share the Magic with little ones again, and we had a full throttle 7 days with 6 consecutive days at the parks..... already talking about all the things we didn't do, and looking forward to next time :)
