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.

Dream Big !

My Grandson Harvey, Age just 2. 1/2 driving the little motorbikes at Wicksteed Park, Kettering, all by himself for the very first time! He made no mistakes, kept his foot on the pedal and steered perfectly! We were so proud of him ! After that he had a super chocolate ice cream cone to make the day !!

The Layout was inspired by Trudy Sigurdson's book 'Tantalizing Textures' .

Man's Best Friend

This is our little dog Jaz, she's now 2 years old and the most loving and faithful little dog ever, I take her out 3 times a day (weather permitting) mostly in the local park, she loves to sniffle through the woodland and trees, rolling in anything she finds 'doggily' attractive! While we are walking, we pass several benches, she always stops and stands up, like in the picture, as if to say 'shall we sit a while?' I sit down and she immediately jumps on my lap and sits there until I ask her " shall we go now?" I love her to bits and love our little walks. She makes my heart smile!

So Beautiful

My dear grandaughter Eloise looking very thoughtful. I kept this LO very simple as I wanted the main focus on the photograph. the idea for the LO came from Becky Fleck's Page Maps.
