What a Scrappy Life

The Girls are coming to Town ...

Oh should I say Coventry, which is near enough. Yes Scrapagogo are holding a day event at the end of February 2010 in Coventry and I've managed to get a place. Yippee .... Julie got a place as well. As well as me and Julie, Liberty, Lisa and Debbie will be going over, which will be just brill.

Now over the past week, I've been busy sorting, printing and repacking my bag for my Retreat which is 11 sleeps away as I write. But of course, before that I'm on a family holiday so packing for that as well.

The object for the weekend is to 'travel light' so only taking one hand held bag with all my crafting things in. When I happy with what I packed, I will take a picture and see if it works.

Onto crafting, still ongoing with my Christmas cards, but did manage to do some layouts at my crop on Sunday. Using the Scrapagogo October kit, which has usual is lush.

This first one is of me with my hair extension in, and was a challenge set by Eileen on the Retreat website, where you had to use a picture of yourself, a song or film title, and 2 products that you like to use. The journalling reads " Everytime I have my hair extension in, I find myself saying 'whos that girl' whenever I see my reflection.

Title is 'Who's that Girl!' which is both a film and song title, 2 products I like to use are Kraft Cardstock and thickers.

Scrapagogo October 09 Kit.

Love these little envelopes that came with the kit, I put the journalling in the envelope and used part of the stamp on the outside.

Scrapagogo October 2009 Kit, again another challenge on the Retreat website and it was to scrap something that was precious, so I chose Jon & James and has much as they sometimes drive me mad, I do not know where or what I would be doing without them in my life.

In my mad tiding up last week, I found this, which I had done about 2 years ago at a workshop before I became hooked on Scrapbooking - LOL. So I'm not sure what the papers are or the album but it worked beautifully with my photos taken by Cheryl Johnson at the June Retreat.

The letter stickers are making memories and the heart was in with the book and just co-ordinates really well.

Just on of the pages

I have journalled on the 1st page but not the others.

This is one I did last week, and forgot to upload, its of James having his 1st swimming lesson at the age of 3 with Nursery. I used a Tim Holtz mask and Glimmer Mist.

Bye for now
