Pretty Princess

That time has come around again.  Every year, just after we've dragged ourselves through Christmas, we have my husband's and our kid's birthdays.  As it's just been Christmas they have no idea what they want for their birthdays and I, not being one who spoils my children, don't want to spend the earth.

However, we finally got out of Isabelle what she wanted and all went well.  Here is she on her special day.

This is, obviously, going in my Project Life (Weeks 1, 2 and 3 coming soon!) but I can't wait to scrap this picture.  It's so lovely and I think would go particularly well with the new Crate Maggie Holmes collection.  I can't wait to get my hands on this ..... gorgeous girlyness!

Next up is Jack's 13th birthday.  Teenager in the making .... look out!

Him and Her

Sarah's Cards have a fantastic sketch for January over on their blog which I couldn't wait to have a go at. Here is my attempt:

I've mostly used product from my very first Studio Calico scrapbooking kit 34th Street which I bought as a one off as I hadn't bought from SC before. I was very impressed with the speed of delivery and the fact that I didn't get charged from customs.

I wanted to keep this layout as simple as possible. I'm always tempted to add more layers or another embellishments but whenever I look at scrapers who use more of a simple style I love their creations. Anyway I'm happy with how this turned out.

No snow here in Plymouth whatsoever ..... like at all!! A little smidgen would be nice. Just a little flurry. Nada!

Christmas 2012

How was your Christmas? We had a lovely quiet Christmas doing just what we wanted. The best kind. We ate loads, drank too much and watched a humungous amount of TV! 

I've now been left with many many photos to print and scrap. I did however get a fantastic gift from my husband which was an instax camera (like the old Polaroid for those from my era!). It instantly prints the photo you've taken in a really handy to scrap 2" by 3".

Here's my first layout using my first prints taken with my pressie.

I used a layout inspired from the Two Peas in a Bucket Memory Keeping Mondays videos with Lisa Truesdell.  I definitely need some practice but it's not a bad start.  I think these will be really useful for my Project Life 2013.
