Breakfast at Nan's


The photographs on this page were taken the morning after the Crafty Afternoon photos (see previous post).  It isn't often that I have all three boys together for breakfast. Pancakes were on the menu and they all helped to make them.  It was fun and recorded for evermore on this scrapbook page.

Here I've used a storyboard type page from Cinzia Loosemore at Oscraps.  Yet another freebie!  Cinzia is a very talented designer and photographer.  I love looking at her family photographs.  Take a look at her blog here.

The background paper and elements are from Kitty Designs-One Sweet Thing kit at Oscraps with the exception of the worn ribbon strip which is by Lynn Grieveson at Designer Digitals.

Happy scrapping!

Valentine Cards


This page is dedicated to Saturday afternoon 12th Feb when the boys all made Valentine's cards.  The journaling tells of how Vicki and Gary went off for a rare night away on their own and left the boys at our house.  Caroline came up with the idea of making Valentine's Day cards with the boys.  She and Charlie came round to our house with all the stuff and the boys all got stuck in and had a whale of a time.

I've used a template here I bought when I first got interested in digital scrapbooking.  It's called Photo Selection by Lauren Bavin at  The background paper is from Mod Bebe Papers by A. Victoria;  jewellery tag from Lil Bits Tags by Katie Pertiet; alpha from Sock Monkey Kit by Lynn Grieveson all at and lastly the cute little Valentine epoxies are Hazel Olive Designs at

I'm enjoying catching up on some scrapping.  I've realised though that I've got such a lot of stock now that I really need to do some re-organising of it all.  What's so very good about it all is that a good percentage of what I have was free stuff.  The digital scrapbook designers of this world are so generous with their talents and products it's amazing.

Until next time,
