George at Seven.

George is very photogenic and it’s easy to take a good photo of him… that is, if he’s relaxed and not in a giddy mood, if that’s the case then maybe not so easy.  Anyway this day a week or so ago I caught him watching the telly and he wasn’t paying me any attention so I snapped away. 

There was a problem though, this photo was my favourite and it turned out to be blurred!

However, with Photoshop Elements and a Shadowhouse Creations texture it turned out fine.


I’m happy with this page.  I like to blend a photo into the background and in this layout I think  George blowing his cornet was just the right one.

I used Cinzia Loosemore’s Thankful For You Kit here, with the exception of the grey background which is a Katie Pertiet paper.  Thankful For You is a huge, gorgeous kit for autumn and it includes the Alpha too.  Her designs can be found at www.oscraps.com.

The template is a great Polly & Rufus Designs freebie found at www.mscraps.com.

Nicholas the Nursery Schoolboy.

Nicholas started nursery school this month.  He’s only three but he’s ready for it.  This little fella is all there with his cough drops and needs an outlet for all the energy he’s got pent up inside that  little head and body.


Here’s the page I’ve made to remember this event.  I’ve used a new kit I’ve just acquired.  It’s a fantastic freebie, a huge collaborative kit from the designers at Sugarhillco.com/blog. 

I’m really enjoying scrapping just now, even though  I do tend to be a slow scrapper.  My main reason for that is I now have so much stock to chose from and I suffer from indecisivenes!  I will admit it’s not a bad problem though.

September in Devon.

Well, we've had our last holiday of 2010 down in Devon.  We had a great week and this page tells the story of what we got up to down there.

I've been wanting to use this template, a freebie (nothing unusual there then), since April.  It's another design by Katie Pertiet at Designer Digitals, she is one very productive woman.  It's quite a simple template but very effective I think.  The only embellishment is the white flower stem, a brush, from Cinzia Loosemore's, Thankful For You Kit.

Summer 2010

Photos of Charlie from our recent holiday in Devon.

The pebbly background is a photograph of the pebbles on Budleigh Salterton beach.  I'd much rather have the pebbles than sand any day although I'm sure Charlie doesn't feel the same way.

For this layout I used a template from Made to Remember LT Book by Katie Pertiet, Designerdigitals.com; the background paper and shells are from Tranquility Mini Kit by Karah Fredericks at Oscraps.com another one of their great freebies.
