suescraftstuff:- I try to put all sorts of things into order in a scrapbook. mainly family. I Started scrapbooking in 2009 and now am totally addicted. Just recently I started making a few cards, mainly for friends and family, I really enjoy doing this, but there is such a lot more to learn. currently I am learning to use promarkers, they're fantastic!!... I have a cricut cutting machine, but like to embellish with different mediums rather than just the cricut cutouts. I love lace and flowers, also distressing and embossing. This is just one of my many hobbies I've had over the years, a big part of it was woodcraft and painting.The woodcraft bit I got from my dad, him and my mum are my all time favourite people, my dad was so kind and clever, dad, I miss you, because of him I still dabble in the woodwork a bit too. But I am loving putting all my photo's into a scrapbook, and lately making cards, to keep and remember everone in a much more interesting way than a normal photo album .hopefully it will be passed on in later years.

Don't you just love the springtime? It's my all time favourite time of the year, the trees are fresh with either their newly opened leaves or blooming with cherry, almond and horse chestnut blossom.  The pp I used on this LO is My Mind's eye, 'La Paperie'  and the ideas for the side bar came from "Embellished emotions" adding your personal touch to  poems quotes and Sayings by Trudy Sigurdson
I love this book, although I don't outright copy her ideas it's such a useful book for giving you ideas and colour combinations
The poems says:
And Spring arose on the garden fair,
Like the Spirit of Love felt everywhere;
And each flower and herb on Earth's dark breast
rose from the dreams of its wintry rest.
