A Birthday Layout .................

I

Hi everyone and happy Sunday to you.  I hope your weekend is going well and you have managed to fit in some crafty time.  I'm hoping to fit some in this afternoon after I've done some housework this morning.  

 I have a double layout to share with you today of Grace's 6th Birthday party. I am really enjoying making double layouts as it's so nice to scrap so many pictures all at once!  The only downside is that they are hard to photograph!  Grace loves looking at my scrapbooks now so I hope that will continue as she grows older and lots of happy memories to look back on. 

Thanks for stopping by.

Meeting Fairies ............

Hi everyone, I seem to start a lot of my posts with fairies in the title, but I'm sure you know by now I'm away with the fairies half the time!  Today's layout is all about me and Grace meeting real live giant fairies at the Fairy Fair!  The Fairy Fair takes place in Holt in Norfolk twice a year and it's a lovely magical day for Grace oh and me as well! 

I used a great layout to scraplift this page which is the October challenge over at Scrapology which I would like to enter with this layout. 

 I started this layout on Friday when I had a lovely scrapbooking day at my friend Marianne's.  Marianne also used this layout, you can see Marianne's page here, it's funny that they are so different!

Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment they are very much appreciated.

A New Home Card .............


Hi everyone, happy Monday to you!  I have a new home card to share with you today.  I've not made a new home card for ages but a friend of mine recently moved so this is the card I made her. I used a sweet bird house stamp from Dreamees on my card.  The new home banner flags were cut from some craft work cards paper.   I used one of my favourite ribbons on this card which is the 15mm satin micro dot ribbon in hot pink and then I finished off the card with a pretty pastel heart button both from the Craft Ribbons Store.

Being Tinkerbell .............


Hi everyone, I hope your week has got off to a good start.    I have a layout to share with you tonight of Grace dressed up as Tinkerbell at the Fairy Fair we went to back in May.   I've started going to a weekly scrapbooking class/crop which I'm really enjoying as you get a lovely kit to work with and sometime to just sit and scrapbook which I hardly ever have time to do at home.  It's good to be getting some more photos and memories scrapped!  I've also got a lovely day of scrapbooking to look forward to on Friday as I'm going over to my friend Marianne's for the day. 

I would like to enter my layout into the following challenge:

Pancake Day Layout

Hi everyone, I thought it was time I got around to scrapbooking this fun picture of Will and Grace from pancake day this year.  I found a great sketch over at The Studio Challenges and this layout came together quite quickly apart from the stitching which took a little while but was quite pleasant while I sat watching Strictly on Saturday night!

I would like to enter my layout into the September Sketch Challenge at The Studio Challenges..

Thanks for stopping by.

The Cupcake Crawl ............

Warning, do not read this post if you are feeling hungry! 

Hi everyone, I meant to share this at the beginning of the week but time has just ran away with me again!  Anyway I wanted to share some pictures from my weekend of the cupcake crawl I went on for my Birthday.   You know you are getting old when you want to go on a cupcake crawl rather than a pub crawl but I did have lots of fun!  Me and a few friends went to London for the day to sample cupcakes from a few of the famous bakeries.

First stop was Peggy Porschen which was in a very posh area of London. 





This was my favourite bakery of the day (what's not to love about a very pretty pink shop!) and this was my favourite cupcake Banoffee!


Next stop was the Humming Bird Bakery at Portabello Road 



I had a very nice carrot cake cupcake here

 and the final bakery was The Primrose Bakery at Convent Garden, this is me and my sister inside



My final cake of the day was salted caramel which was delicious!


And finally on last picture to show you the Birthday present I got off Will and Grace, a lovely new mixer to bake lots of cupcakes.  I also got a lovely coffee machine from my in-laws so now all my friends can come round for latte and cake! 


I hope I have not made you feel too hungry after all those pictures of cake!

Thanks for stopping by.
