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)
I just wanted to show you this layout that I did a couple of days ago. I think Charlotte looks gorgeous in this photo.
I am currently using my craftrobo to cut out a wrought iron gate from black bazzill - I am excited, as it will be lovely if it has worked out how I hoped. I drew the gate in Paint Shop Pro and then converted it to a .gsd file - it is taking an age to cut!! The wrought iron gate is for a Circle Journal layout that I am doing for my Favourite Childhood Book. I am doing The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett and my layout is inspired by Michael Powell's Secret Garden cross stitch pattern (which I also love).
