I love to scrap and I love to stitch. I also love reading, eating and the odd glass of red wine! I only wish I had more time to do all the things I love. Most of my time is taken up looking after a couple of other things I love and they are my two gorgeous children Ben and Charlotte. They ARE gorgeous, I am not biased, I have been blessed with beautiful children which is a good thing because I have such wonderful subjects for my scrapbooking addiction.
I am married to Mark and we will celebrate our fifteenth wedding anniversary in July - we are just as happy now as when we first met. He would rather I didn't spend any money on scrapbooking or cross stitch stash but if I didn't do that I would be perfect and surely that would be really boring!
Anyway, this blog is a sort of diary / gallery and I enjoy updating my blog for myself and my family but any visitors are welcome :o)
Did you watch the programme on BBC1 last night about Blondie? It was great! I love Blondie (I am listening to them right now on my Ipod). I think One Way or Another is my favourite all time song it doesn't fail to cheer me up and get me tapping my foot.
I have just completed my first challenge from the Speshal blog. Yes I know it is #12 but I haven't got around to the others. I always go and have a look though. Here is my take on 'My Hero'. It looks nice and clean cut. The circle on the left opens out into a mini accordian book with some more pictures (see below). I made the cover out of a bazzill chip and made the accordian book to fit behind it. The photo also lifts up to reveal some journalling.
There was another fun day in the park opposite our house today. We popped over for a little while and the kids had fun on a ride and the 2p slots. Then I came hope and did a little scrapping (the challenge). Now I am browsing around on the net and looking at the mess I have made of my scrap area - I really should tidy it up now :(
