Holiday Time...Whoo Hooo!!

Well I'm all packed and ready for our 4* luxury mid week break away at The Imperial Hotel in Blackpool starting tomorrow.

I know its probably going to be freezing cold but who cares its Blackpool and if you can't enjoy yourself there then where can you. The boys are really looking forward to seeing the lights in all their splendour and me and Jay are just going to look forward to the break after spending 2 and half years renovating our house without a holiday, I think we've well and truly earned this one so who cares what the weather throws at us, we're not bothered!!

I will leave you with a layout I did last night using a kit from GottaCraft featuring Crate Paper. I pretty much used everything in the kit apart from the flourish stamp from Basic Grey. Claude the cat belongs to my Mom and Roger and he's just so scrummy and very heavy but loves to stop by for a fuss especially off Kyle!!

Have a nice half term week, and I'll be back with plenty to talk and scrap about :)

Blinding Fun

A bright and bold layout I've created for the House Challenge over on UKS. The aim was to use a fun photo and scrap with as many patterned papers as possible.

This is my youngest son at the park blinking at the complete wrong time but the photo (in my opinion obviously lol) oozes so much fun and pleasure just from the wonderful smile that it begged to be scrapped.

All the patterned papers are from BoBunny Star Struck range, Autumn Leaves stamps for part of the title and Doodlebug Loopy Lou letters scribbled on to match the page, Bazzill pompoms for a fun element and BoBunny Urban stamps and basically I just cut everything out and mounted a few bits on 3D foam for extra dimension.

Finally I have a layout to share with you, no don't faint I know its been a while lol.

Truthfully I've been scrapping layouts ready for a page kit from GottaCraft to celebrate the wonderful high jinks of Halloween.

Right, back to my layout which is an Easter one minus the traditional Easter embellishments which I don't use since I developed more style. We were having a egg hunt at Gran & Grandad's home...good job the sun shone that day lol.

I have to say I'm totally addicted to this pompom ribbon and don't mind confessing I have it in several colours cos its just fun and funky and very, very tactile :)

I've used a kit I purchased from GottaCraft featuring Crate Papers and the Blue Hill collection and embellishments and of course my pompom ribbon. I normally avoid Easter, Birthdays and Christmas pages because they all become a bit samey but I really do like how this turned out, a bit different without any sign of a bunny, chick or egg!

Pinch, Punch, 1st of the Month

Yep the 1st October, before you know we'll be unwrapping Christmas presents lol, its a quick year and blimey its getting cold out there.

Been a bit too busy to blog, my youngest son turned 7 on Saturday, where does the time go. We've been building Lego castles and when I've not been entertaining him I've had to sort the bedrooms out otherwise we will have to turn Santa away :(

Next on my to do list is the cupboard containing all my stash, apparently I have to sort it all out and put it in the tote my husband bought me for Christmas...ooops!

I have squeezed in a CJ entry and I'm working on some Hallowe'en stuff for GottaCraft which I love especially as Jay does the most amazing pumpkin carvings, I do love Autumn :)

Until next time xxx
