Catch up

Just a quickie to share the pages I did for Sarahs January kit.

Look Behind You

Day 1

(Sam channelling Freddie Mercury)

Sleeping Sam

Take Nothing But Photos
 I've still enough of the kit to do a couple more too.

This is a LO using a 6x6 pad of MME Blink of an Eye. I used a couple of those twist ties that were all the rage a few years ago. I chopped some up and just used single words; and the "xoxoxoxoxoxox" across the bottom is another one stapled on.
 I'm really dissappointed with this scan - even though I scanned it twice it looks no where near as good as it does IRL. The papers are from a 6x6 pad of MME Kraft Funday with some Elle's Studio bits and bobs too.

Hijacked by a 7 year old.

I was happily scrapping away last week using American Crafts Nightfall when my nosey James asked what I was going to call it. I said "I don't know yet" so he asked me to call it "Looking at a monkey" ...
so I did.

I usually try to scrap equal numbers of pages for each boy, but I hadn't scrapped many pages for James's album recently so the next one is also of him. The photo was taken for his karate license in November so it is a very plain face shot. As I was looking at it I was trying to see if his chicken pox scars were visable - that gave me the idea for the LO. YOu should be able to read the journalling if you click on it . The papers are American Crafts Chap.

I'll be able to blog my Sarahscards pages soon I think, as the kits should have been delivered.

Happy New Year! I didn't realise I had been MIA for so long. Christmas does that doesn't it - steals a whole month of your life away! I've been scrapping as much as usual but can't share 5 of my pages until I know which ones Sarah chose for the Sarahscards January Kit booklet. The kit was lovely and I still have enough of it to scrap a few more pages! Value for ££ :)

I scrapped this page way before Christmas but forgot to blog it. It's my fabulous in-laws with the boys when we were in Scotland in August. We really are lucky to have them. They look after the boys when I am at work and are on hand to babysit the odd time The Husband and I actually go out together. The papers are old MME ones called "Bloom and Grow" and the bird stamp was from a Scarlett Lime kit I got eons ago and have never used. Can you spot my favourite alpha trick? Using a substitute for a letter when I have run out? Answers on a postcard...
 This is the start of my New Year Scrapping Resolution. I used to take part in "12 of 12" that was a free to join in scrapping challenge. It seems to have been taken over and commercialised (sp?) so I'm just making my own version up. I am going to take photos of all the mundane "stuff" we do on or around the first of each month then scrap the photos. This is (obviously) 1.1.12. I love, love, love these papers - American Craft Amy Tangerine from Sarahscards.
 Lastly, this is a page I had thought about and started but then put aside to focus on Sarahs January kit. I thought the papers were Fancy Pants but they say "Scrap Within Reach" on them "Paper Boy" range. Anyway, it is Josh and his class mascot on a bike ride. There are a few Elle's Studio bits on there too.
So, that's me officially caught up on here until I can blogg the kit LO's.
