From a kit

At a risk of repeating myself I am loving Sarahscards ~ scrapbooking kits

.

I love these kits as they take me out of my comfort zone, as they contain items that I am not naturally drawn too. If I chose all of my own scrapbooking stash I think it would follow the theme of pink, glittery, loads of flowers and bling by the lorry load, this has made me very consious to try & not bling every layout.


A week ago today

A week ago today i was the proudest Mummy on the planet.

Dan along with many others got his long awaited A level results, well 3 out of the 4 as one was missing.

So to add to his 12 GSCE's he now has A levels in
Maths
Further Maths
IT
Chemistry

needless to say we all went out to celebrate & I was so excited I was struggled to concentrate on anything for the rest of the week.




OKay I admit I have been a bad blogger

Thank you everyone for poking me with the sharp stick of guilt this week, I have been a bad blogger for the last couple of weeks, so here I am back with some catch up posts.
We have been fortunate enough to have been able to spend some quality family time
with kids & grand kids so lots of lovely picture opportunities, & hand in hand with that lots of scrap booking opportunites.









So here are a few of the pages I have made over the last couple of weeks.

Sweetie pie

Abi has the biggest, most beautiful eyes ever, they change colour when she cries or is ill, but she does like to make them look bigger still. She can even do her make up on the move.



She does make me chuckle, she was wandering around the house doing her make up.

Yarmouth Summer nights



Yarmouth tourist board put on a firework display during the 6 weeks of the summer holidays every wednesday with a roadshow & entertainment. We went over last night with John. As usual I took my camera & had a play.



I love the pictures of the moon over the sea.



John needed a new profile picture so he was posing on the groynes.




Family Fun

I had a picture in my head and as so often happens what ends up on the paper is nothing like the vision in my head, and this is one of those times.









The card is bazzill & the paper is Daisy D's

The many faces of Abi

I get much of my scrapbook inspiration from the pictures I take of Abi, she loves posing in front of the camera & is so patient when I get the camera out, she is even beginning to look at different items as props, her latest being a £3 transparent bubble umbrella from Primark.................So watch this space for the next photo shoot.

Here are some piccies I took of the many faces of Abi.

It's not often Paul will pose for a picture, so this could be a rare layout.
