Let it Go .............

Hi everyone, well if you know the Frozen film I'm sure you will have burst into song by now!  My little Grace is frozen mad so I really needed to do a layout to document that story and how she loves dressing up as Elsa! I'm sure it will be fun to look back on when she is all grown up! 

I followed a great sketch for this layout from The Studio Challenges for this layout and I would like to enter my layout into their sketch challenge this month.

A Card for a Runner ...................

Hi everyone, I hope you all had a good bank holiday weekend.  Well I completed my race on Sunday and Grace and Will did the fun run.  I managed to run 10k in 58 minutes and 35 seconds so I was really pleased with that.  We all got completely soaked but it was all worth it when we got our lovely medals.  We certainly did laugh about the rain as it poured it down as you will see from the photo below I look like a drowned rat lol!

Anyway onto the card, one of the ladies in my running group ran the London marathon last weekend so I made a card from the group to give to her.  I used a digi from Polka Doodles on my card and a mix of papers from stash, a memory box precious star die and a sentiment I printed on my computer.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Dance Buddies Layout ............

Hi everyone, I hope you are all enjoying the bank holiday weekend.  I'm off  to run in a 10k race this morning in King's Lynn but it is forecast heavy rain all morning just my luck!  Never mind I will feel good afterwards even I do get completely soaked!  

Anyway onto my layout this was Grace with her dance buddies back stage at her recent dance show. One of  her friend's mums took this photo, it would have been better if Grace was looking at the camera but it's still a lovely memory for her to look back on. 

Thanks for stopping by!

National Scrapbooking Day!!!

Hi everyone, I hope you are all having a lovely weekend.  It's National Scrapbooking Day today so I thought I should share a recent layout that I made.  This is an 8 x 8 page that I made and I have put this in box frame and hung it up in my kitchen.  It's the first time I have had a go with adding paint splatters to a layout but I really like the effect so I think I will be doing it again!  I added a bit of glitter to the wet paint so it has a bit of a sparkle to it as well. 

Have you anything nice planned for today?  Me and Grace are having a girly day together, we are going out for lunch to a gorgeous teashop called Florence's in King's Lynn where they make the most delicious homemade cakes and then a bit of clothes shopping and then some craft shopping in the Range.  Then I hope to fit in a bit of crafty time when I get home!

Thanks for stopping by.

A Birthday Card ..............

Hi everyone, I hope you are well and have had a good weekend.  I have been very busy, I went on a crochet course yesterday morning with a friend which I really enjoyed.  I think I have got the hang of the basic stitches so I need to get practising now!  

Anyway onto my card, I have used a super cute Chloe on Swing digi topper kit for the main image and it also comes with sentiments to.  The topper is designed to fit a 8 x 8 card but I shrunk it down to fit on a 6 x 6 card. I used some Docraft papers and finished off with some lovely lace by Crafty Ribbons.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
