This is Iain at the bbq - the only real cooking that he can do!


This is a lo for my colour album - brown for mud!
Seems quite appropriate this year really as we have had one of the wettest summers.
The photo below was taken by Iain at Goodwood festival of speed and I was hoping that i could get it into my scrapbook somewhere so here it is!

Emily & Alfred

This photo is for my great nan and grandad - I never knew my grandad as he died in the 60's...I don't remember my great nan much either as she passed when I was about 4. The photo was taken outside their house.

I have done some journally on the lo and it basically says what I have above.

S for School Days

This lo is for my a-z album..only one more to go for that album now!


for my colour album

Inside the shed!

Dh lives inside the shed mostly these days! so here is a lo with the inside of the shed and listed down the left as some of the things inside the shed. I am quite pleased with how this one has turned out!

True Love

2 piccies of my nan and grandad taken a number of years ago!
I love the piccies they are really sweet.
True love just about summed their relationship up.

I like this lo and the best thing its its made of scraps!lol

R for Race

This is my take on the pl sketch no 45 and this fits in to my a-z album quite nicely!

Turquiose Car

War Time

The weekly challenge on uks this week was to use a allie colour from wartime, something metal, a B&W photo and some hidden journalling so here is the lo I made. I am quite pleased with this one.

The photo is of my nan, uncle and aunt. It would have been taken around 1943/1944 whilst my grandad was away at war. My grandad was away time my uncle was about 2.

Grey Lo

We have decided to do an album based on colour and the first colour we tackled was grey. Here is my lo

I for in-laws

This page was inspired by the uk scrappers summer crop class f is for fairy I have adapted it and this will be page I of my a-z album

Z is for Zoo

This lo was inspired by the stepping stones class on the summer cyber crop (uks2007) and whilst i did not follow the class completely (due to not stitching on it) I still think this was a good take on the lo.

This page will become my z for zoo page

Prety Flowers

I was beggining to think that a lot of my lo's were starting to look samey so tonight I have tried to be a bit different and I have come up with this.

Pencillines Sketch 44 - New Dress

Here is my take on the pencillines sketch no 44.

I think the dress matches the papers quite well!lol

First time on a track

Braved it and went as a passenger when Iain and his mate went on a track day yesterday! It was a bit scary but I am glad that I did it.

This weeks challenge on uks involved scrapping a "first" so this was perfect theme for me.

Contents page for a-z album

I was challenged to make a lo using black and white and one splash of colour. I did the lo and then really struggled with a title so I turned it into my contents page for my a-z album!

M is for ME

I love these Kelly Panacci Sandylion papers and embellies so I had to use these in my a-z album this is page M for Me!

A for Authors I like...

This lo has been largely inspired by Helen (weblet) as I stole her title from a page that she did and it was also her challenge of pink/yellow and chipboard that I used to make this lo.

This will be my A page for my a-z album

B is for Brother

This is a lo of my brother and his girlfriend and it will go in my a-z album under B is for Brother.

This was completed as part of a challenge to use blue / brown, ribbon and chipboard.

Quite pleased with how this one turned out.

Laura & Her MAC!

I bought this sheet of paper this morning (yes the only one I bought!) and I was determined to use it, these photos went quite well with it and yes Laura is never far from her mac!lol

4 Generations

This challenge was to use 3 shades of pink, bling and ribbon. The photo was taken in December 2003 on my dads wedding day. In the photo are my nan (who died 18 months ago) my aunt, cousin and her daughter

Would u wear these?

I ws challenged by Clare to make a lo using 3 pics, purple, ribbon and stars so here is my effort!

This is a fun lo....we were at Laura's last weekend when she produced her new shoes so of course mum and my step mum had to try them on! i got some photos and heres my lo!


This lo was inspired by the august week 1 challenge on uks. I only claimed 25 of the 30 points though as I did not use anything fluffy! Felt it would have spoilt the lo!

This photo was taken about 18 years ago I was in the show Hans Christian Anderson and my brother and sister was in the show too. The photo was taken at the end of the show and thats why the title of the lo is Finale!

Uncle Jim

The challenge was 2 pics, cs and 4 embellies...well i have 2 dif beer embellies, buttons and 2 lots of writing so I am hoping that counts!lol
Dad recently emailed me these photos of my uncle who died a couple of years ago. One was taking in the 30's and the other the 80's or 90's so I figured they fit quite well together
