We are in Malta at the moment, this won't be a long post as the costs of being online is quite expensive from the hotel.
We are having a lovely time its very hot, just a shame that I managed to burn my back on the second day here though!
We have done some sight seeing and been across to Comino on a speedboat which was really cool we also had a personal tour of the blue lagoon.
We have been around on the buses quite a bit - the older style buses are still here which is good (remembering them from 10 years ago but I thought they had been replaced)
We have also spent some time by the pool.
The hotel is lovely and the food is also very good, much better than we have had before.
I have taken about 150 photos so far so there should be no whinging of not having anything to scrap by the time I get back - I will just be wanting to find that "perfect paper" or embellie to buy instead!

This is the beloved new car! I am jsut wondering what car will be next...he has finally got the car he has always wanted but I am sure that it won't end there.
We have been to town today and he had an eye test so we have debated all afternoon over whether or not glasses should be purchased! Had a lovely lunch out too. Not sure I will be doing anymore scrapbooking tonight now.

I had these 4 photos already printed but wasn't really sure what to do with them so we ended up with this! The 2nd paper is under the title and there is some journalling which says it was a visit to Colchester zoo as a mothers day treat and that mum enjoyed looking round the elephant house and feeding the elephants.
It was a very cold day though for the end of March but as we know the English weather is very changeable!
The third LO was inspired by a challenge although it went wrong and I did not meet the challenge the LO still looks good as the pictures on it are very strong. These photos were taken on a trip to Munich back in April. My husband loves bmw's and wanted to see the factory. We did also visit the temporary BMW museum which will no doubt end up the subject of another LO!

My challenge was to scrapbook using 2 patterned papers and 3 photos. Not as easy as you first think. finding 3 photos on a theme was hard enough but to then find some papers "to match" was even more difficult. I settled on the black daisy paper having chosen the photos and couldn't find anything else to tone in. So thats when I decided to use my second paper in the heart on the bottom right of the page.
It was nice having a challenge although it made me realise that I really do need more photos. My stupid printer had a hissy fit whilst printing too so I had to do the pictures twice as well.
I am off to bed now as very tired.....

Well...there was more inspiration in me than I thought - these are some pages put together tonight from picutres of me as a child...I have scrapbooked these in 8x8 as against 12x12 as the photos are smaller and not very good quality.
I have tonnes of albums on the go though...I do wonder when the 8x8 will get filled?

After my scrapbooking I decided to visit the sale on capture the magic website. Am quite pleased as i spent less than £20 and managed to get myself 35 or so items including some stickers and things that i would not usually buy due to the cost. If you have not already been there you may want to have a look.

I plan to use this blog to keep you updated with my crafty projects. I am a scrapbooker mainly. I did enjoy card making but as I enjoyed taking photos scrapbooking seemed the obvious progression really! I get to keep what I make (well I do make presents for people too that are scrapbooks but can keep my favourites)
Hoepfully you can follow what I do!
I am new to blogging to bear with me if I am not doing it as well as some others!
