Scrapping in the sun

On our recent break in Portugal I took full advantage of my free time and did some scrapbooking.
A table on the balcony was an ideal spot.


I made a total of 37 pages. 
This took planning as I had to take everything with me. 
I did this by making Page Kits. In the kit I had everything to make the page plus a sketch. 
I took a basic tool kit. The result, lots of scrapbooking. 
When I think of how I used to go to crops with everything but the kitchen sink in my pull along bag
 ( bigger than my suitcase) and only make 1 page. On the table there is a pencil case that had my tools in it. I also had a cutting mat and Tim Holtz ruler.
I really think everyone should give it a go. Coffee and cake is optional.

If I had known you were coming....

Thought I would treat the family and bake a cake. It turned out ok even if I say so myself.


Green is not my favourite colour but I love this Nails Inc nail polish my mum gave me as a gift. Thanks Mum!

Hidden treasure

Years ago Roy's dad gave us a rose bush. We planted it and to be honest it has done nothing until now. I was hanging out washing, turned and saw hidden between the Budlea and the Russian Vine the most beautiful blooms. I wanted to share this treasure .
