New York, New York!

Okay I didn't want to start it yet but I can't hold out any longer ..... I have begun the count down to our honeymoon in New York!  I am so very excited that I can hardly stay still.  I feel like life's in limbo until we get there and begin our holiday. 

I have wanted to go to New York as far back as I can remember so for our wedding if our guests asked what we would like as gifts we asked if we could have travel vouchers (very controversial wedding subject!).  We were very lucky to receive enough to purchase flights to New York which was unbelievable for us. 

There are many reasons to visit New York but one of the best for me is ...... scrapbook shopping!!!! Of course.  I have a few addresses for scrapbooking stores, including Michael's.  I cannot wait. 

I would welcome any suggestions/ideas from anyone who has been to New York for places to visit, restaurants to eat at etc etc. 

Sewing machine (love it) post coming soon.

Finally finally I've got a sewing machine!  Yay!!!!!!!!!!

I've been wanting a sewing machine for such a long time now and I happened to pop into Lidl yesterday morning and they had a SilverCrest machine for sale at £59.99.  After a lot of thought and some forum searching I decided to get it and it's great.

Small problem - I have no idea how to set it up and use it yet (oops) but I plan to have my mother-in-law round to give me a lesson.  I'm allergic to reading instruction manuals.  I can't wait to get some stitching onto a layout.

Watch this space xx

New Year, New Pages

Technically these layouts were done late last year but hey ho it's nice to put something up given that I've been away for a few weeks.

I hope everyone had a fantastic Christmas and New Year and enjoyed the celebrations to the full.  Even better I hope you've managed to get some fantastic photos to scrap. 

I've started a new album.  We've, finally, got ourselves a new Paperchase store in Plymouth and it so happens that they sell these fab A5 Kraft folders all ready to decorate.  Better still they also sell A5 pockets and A5 pockets divided into two 6x4 photo sections.  I've already begun a new 2012 album which begins, of course, at New Year's Eve.

Happy Scrapping
