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.

The King's Folly

A double page LO of some sculptures which are relative to a story written for the children and folk who walk in East Carlton Park. Market Harborough. Leics.  The story is about a King and his land, woodland spirits, dragons and witches. It's a super story and has a moral to the tale, look after your land, be yourself and appreciate all things that are around you.

Going cheep!

This Parrot Sanctuary/Zoo is situated about 5miles from my Mum's house in Lincolnshire. we have visited a couple of times to see and support the poorly parrots and the many birds and animals that these people care for. The little bird on the top of the picture, devoid of his feathers, is in a quarantine cage. I hope he gets better soon! Underneath are pictures of myself with some of the little birds and parrots that fly freely in an 'open' walk-through aviary. They are quite tame and it's a real pleasure to be 'at one' with these beautiful little birds. If you're ever in Lincolnshire on the A52 towards Skegness, drop in and pay them a visit, you'll be contributing a a very worthwhile cause, and you'll have a super day out in the bargain!

Thank Nature

I thank nature for this most amazing day, for the leaping greenly spirits of trees and for the blue dream of sky.

A typical day walking for me and my little dog Jaz. This is our favourite place to walk, lots of places to sit and gaze, and for jaz to sniff! lots of nice people to chat to and little dogs for jaz to sniff! (You might get the idea that Jaz likes to sniff) There in the bottom two pics she is waiting at the benches for us to sit.
