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.

Christmas 2011

My little granddaughter opening her presents when she came up to us on Boxing day, she opened her boots which I bought her, the look of disappointment on her face says it all, she had her little phone in her hand, it looked like she was texting, "would you believe these adults? Boots indeed!) the bottom photo was her after she'd opened her little keyboard, smiles with that!! lol

The Cake

I thought I'd try to make cake for my granddaughter's 2nd birthday. She absolutely loves Waybuloo on TV, so I thought I'd have a go. It was the first time in my lfe I'd ever used roll-on icing and made models. It was a bit hit and miss, but the cake was nice to eat anyway. She recognised the little characters so it couldn't have been that bad!
For this Layout I used inspiration from Becky Fleck's Page Maps book. used Martha Stewart's Edge punch, some papermania flowers and some ribbon from my stash.
