My Christmas Star



No tree this year as we're still building, but we do have this tiny tree - so I hung my Christmas Star on it!

Road Trip - Milkshake

I'm thinking that I should probably use this blog more, put up more of my paper LOs here rather than just the digis. I seem to have gone through a phase of only doing paper LOs when they're required for competitions and challenges, rather than making them for myself.

Well, last week I discovered a way of scrapping and studying at the same time - listening to podcasts from the Colorado School of Mines!

So I've been getting some road trip layouts done. Here's one:



My father looked so guilty to be drinking a strawberry milkshake from Wendy's! I think he enjoyed it rather more than he let on, though. ;)

Casa Battlo

Made this for the Scrummy Stash Cafe's latest challenge. The challenge was to come up with a different way to do journalling. Mine is written round the buttony-flowery things.

The Build


Another digi for another UKS challenge - the only regular scrapping that I'm doing at the moment is on my December Daily Album.
Theme was for new beginnings (in this case the new bits being added to our house), to use white flowers or ribbons, to follow the sketch and to use stamping. Obviously my stamping isn't the regular ink stamping, it's faux digi stamping, but that's counted in the past!!

Gaudi Afternoon


Made for a UK Scrappers Challenge. Round photo, literary title* and a hand-made embellishment (a little tricky as a digi, but I made the button from scratch). The kit is Blue Lagoon by Sweet Blossom Designs and the font is Santa's Big Secret.

Blimey it was hot on Friday afternoon. We sat in Park Guell, rolled up our sleeves and had a lovely cup of coffee. Today we're back in Blighty wearing extra layers and shivering!
