What a Scrappy Life

NSD and sneeky peek ...

Happy May Day, like normally on a bank holiday the weather is a bit iffy, so just potting around the house then going to the Botanical Gardens later (more photos needed - LOL) thats if it doesn't start to rain.

So on Saturday, I drove over to Shropshire to the Skrapz monthly crop, which they had extended for the day to include a 12 hours crop offering 4 mini books layout classes throughout the day, but for some of us we just went to scrap our own work, but as usual when I saw the mini books being taught, I wanted to do them, but eh oh, I did manage to have a laugh (your know me) complete 4 layouts, discuss what we will be doing at our mini retreat at the end of year, have lunch, drank loads of tea, have a really nice evening meal of chilli & Rice and Toffee Pavola ( forgot to take pics - but it did taste and look nice).

I had a lovely day but the journey back was a nightmare, it started to rain, and boy did it rain and going on the motorway on your own in the dark is no joke, so it did take me ages to get home and driving at 40 mph on the motorway only prolonged my journey, but I made it in one piece.

A full shop with some lovely new products, surprisingly I only spent £6.45, maybe it had something to to with that I had already got most of the new products already.

A lovely buffet lunch

Trying to use up my stash, I decided to take apart my past Scrapagogo Kits from 2008 and early 2009, so I put together some page kits to take with me, that included some of the odd and ends that was left over from each kit.

includes some November 2008 products

included January 2009 kit ( sorry for the photo not being straight - don't know what happen there!!)

April 2010 kit and used a pencil line sketch book

Another one without a title, I have got one, but need to die cut the letters, that my only problem with Thickers (which I love) is the fact that you end up with loads of odd letters left over.

On Sunday I had a few hours to myself, so produced this one and two others that I still need to take photos of. This is James aged about 6, on one of our early visit to the Lickey Hill, and whenever he had or should I say still eat hula hoops he always puts them onto his fingers before eating them.

And my sneeky peek, which I will explain more on a later blog post.

And finally for today, I love my garden, but most of the time I think it doesn't have a lot of colour in it, I'm out there most days and can only see green leafs and weeds, so over the weekend I was surprised when I looked around I noticed my 'bleeding heart' plant, which is looking absolutely lovely and in full bloom.

Right the sun is coming out, so better get myself sorted to go out this afternoon, have a great day and thanks for stopping by ...
