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)
Well it was the cyber crop of UK Scrappers this weekend so I had a lovely crafty weekend :) I didn't do as much as normally do on a cybercrop but I still did plenty and got a couple of nice layouts out of it!
The pre-crop challenge was to produce a layout with something hidden on it. I had a brilliant idea for it but I didn't really have the supplies to do it or the time as I feel it will be quite complicated to do. I am going to try and do that soon though so I am not going to tell you what the idea was. I produced this layout of my mum instead. The first half of the image is the layout and the second half shows the layout with the top photo open to reveal another photograph and some journalling :)
I also created this layout for a pre-crop challenge using a mystery kit. I had problems with this one and couldn't decide what to do but I think the layout turned out nice in the end :o)
During the weekend I did these layouts:
I did a couple of other things for challenges and also a lovely Lippy Chick book which I loved doing.
All in all it was a great cybercrop and now I can't wait to go to the Little Cottage Crafts crop next weekend :o)
