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 got my subscribers issue of The Scrapbook Magazine today and this layout is on page 72. I sent this layout for publication 24 hours after I had completed it and I can't wait to get it back again and stick it in my album :)
I completed my layout for the Pre-crop challenge for the UK Scrappers cyber crop last night and I also completed a layout of Ben today. I can't share either as I can't be bothered to scan at the moment. Also, I can't show the pre-crop challenge layout as it goes up for anonymous voting at the weekend, not that it will get many votes. I haven't got any friends lol.
I will scan the layout of Ben tomorrow and upload it. I know I do more layouts of Charlotte than Ben but I just love doing the girly ones so much and I find it much harder to do 'boy' layouts.
If Terrie is reading this, I will ring you tomorrow but if I forget PM me. If not, I may read this and remember!!
