My fab OTP desk organsier!

I love this practical desk organiser - it was my 1st big OTP project....  and I hope to make another for my Mum soon. I use it every day so certainly worth the effort.

Caity's album.....

Caitlyn's album was created at the same time as Jess's as their birthdays are 10 days apart (step sisters). I love these 3 photos of Caity....she was only 4bl 4oz when born half the weight my Jess was. The middle photos was taken in the first year or so of Caity being in my life and really shows her happy nature. The recent photo is one Caity took her self that I borrowed from Facebook. She is quite shy in person so hard to get photos of now - so the best ones are the one's she takes herself!! I used My Minds Eye Stella and Rose papers for this layout..... I recently fell n love with these papers.

more of Jess's album

 I loved creating this double page spread for Jess's 18th album. She looked stunning dressed up for her yr 12 ball. I wanted to make it very pretty but needed to include lots of photos to tell the story. Printing smaller photos and using them along the bottom with the gorgeous pink ribbon as a border made all the difference. I have a small amount of the ribbon left - and am saving it for a page for me of her ball photos!!

My daughters 18th album..... 6+ months in the making!

These are some shots of the first page of my daughter Jess's 18th birthday album. I am a big Kaisercraft fan so no surprise I used their English Rose collection for this photo.... I decided to make the 1st page first...... and was very happy with how it turned out. I started scanning all her photos in around October 2010....we then moved house early December - so not much scraping that month. I started a few pages in January then had quite a few weeks off due to a shoulder operation. Finally at 1pm the day before her birthday in May I finished. I thought I would be sad to had it over but no saddness..... much relief and also pleasure when she was so proud of it she made her friend come over to see it! I also had completed an album the week before for her Step sister..................more on Caity's album later.

and so my blog begins...

Hello............... I have been toying with creating my own blog for some time. I am a very keen scrapbooker and card maker who is keen to learn more about this never ending addiction called scrapbooking!!

I post regularily on Anna's Craft Cupboard - so a blog was the next step. I started scrapbooking photos from my 30th birthday..... back in December 2005 and this little hobby has taken over. Please bare with me as I learn all about this thing called a is something I worked on recently of my son's visit to Santa in 2009.....Santa phobia kicked in last year so glad I have these shots.
