I love to scrapbook, I only wish I could find more time for it, still I have a whole day scrapping this Saturday so I will have to get myself sorted. I have so many photos to scrapbook, its a job to choose. Many of my recent pages have been about trips to Wales and Shep our Border Collie having fun on the beach. Last year I made a little album all about the snow and the fun we had making snowmen and having snowball fights. So I thought I would share it with you......

I really enjoyed making it and love looking through it. It used the now retired set flaky friends still one of my favourites , I love those little snowmen, soo cute....... and of course my fave colour blue, sorry about the photo's not brilliant I'm afraid. Anyway Thanks for stopping by hope you enjoyed my album.

Gosh its been nearly a week since my last post where has the time gone?  Well I was pretty busy last week and then I was away at the weekend, I thought I might do a bit of blogging whilst away but forgot to take the dongle and where we were staying wanted to charge £10 per day to use the WiFi, but only one person could access it at a time...... My children were not amused...
Hey Ho
Anyway we stayed in Newquay and  we found a fabulous house just look at this, talk about owning your own Island. How cool is that......
We had a brilliant time walking along the beach and exploring the caves, my children (12 & 15) still love messing about on the beach......
 Josh pretending to be a zombie??????
 Shep just loved being in the sea, he had such a great time.....
 Anyway back to some crafting, this is card I made for a work collegue for her Mom's 80th Birthday..
The Baroque Motiffs Stamp set is fast becoming a favourite, it is so versatile, I have used it for christmas, birthdays and on scrapbook pages. Its gorgeous..
Anyway hope you like it and thanks for stopping by.....

I am doing a workshop tonight and I wanted to do an easy make & take but the group of ladies who are attending are all seasoned crafters, so when I found this card by Jenny Moors I thought we would try it.

It uses the scallop trim border punch and the scallop trim corner punch, I have soo been waiting for these, they are just gorgeous. You can go all the way around a piece of card to create such a lovely effect.

How gorgeous is that.....

Anyway Thanks for stopping by...

Convention 3D Swaps


Back again this time with some of the 3D swaps I received...

Mmmmm Chocolate.......
Unfortunatly these two had no information on them so I can't give credit for them which is a shame.
Another with no information, it is really lovely, the flower is actually a broach made from DSP, on a cute little gift card.
This lovely cone was made by Carolyn Exwood, using the Jolly Holiday designer series papers.
Doris Stempelt created this little mini post it holder, ah so cute. 
Love this nail file holder, created by Jane Cheshire, one of our P'ink ladies. 
 This is such a clever christmas decoration, made by Joanne Friend, using folded Jolly Holiday DSP.
 A little chocolate treat made by Nicky Painter, so sweet.

This cute keyring was made by Sarah Makin, the picture is supposed to be me, kind of, well it is when I don't curl my hair. he he. Sarah is also a P'ink lady too. (I will explain later) 
This lovely handmade potpourri, with the cute little gingerbread man was made by Sarah Poulton, another P'ink Lady......
What a lot of talented demo's there are..
P'ink Ladies are the team we are in, I will share more tomorrow with some more goodies...

Thanks for dropping by....

More pirates, this card is by Teri Pocock, brilliant, it would make a fab birthday card for my son...
