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 went the Scraps in the City crop in Exeter on Saturday and I was very proud of myself as I drove there myself and didn't get a lift as normal. This may not seem like much to some people but I really don't like driving to places I haven't driven to before. This was proved right when I got lost and ended up driving aimlessly around Exeter for about an hour! Never mind, I found it in the end thanks to some directions from Nona (thanks Nona). I would be able to find it straight away next time so that is one hurdle I have jumped :)
Another thing I have sorted this week is well quite a few things that I needed to go and see the doctor for and now the problems are all on the way to being sorted :) One of them being that the mole I have been worrying about is perfectly fine and that there are no other moley problems on my body as I had a full body check. Yippee!
I am very excited this week as I can finally say for definite that Mark and I will be moving back to Plymouth at the beginning of next year - I can't wait.
I did the Proper Little Madam layout at the crop and I was really pleased with how it turned out. I messed around with the photo in Photoshop to create the moody effect and all the little coloured pics. Charlotte asked me why she wasn't smiling when I showed her the lo and I had to remind her that she will never smile for me when I am taking photo's anymore!! The silver journalling does go all the way around the edge of the layout but my scanner just wouldn't fit it in.
