Summer holidays

I'm taking a little blogging break over Christmas. And a scrapbooking break too. Life has got busier and busier and I find it difficult to squeeze much crafty time in to our lives at the moment.

Wishing all my blog readers a fabulous Christmas and new year.

See you in 2012!

Published pages to share

I had two layouts in the October issue of Scrapbook Trends (US). The first one is a page about my parents' vegetable garden.

Journaling: Mum and Dad have an amazing vegetable garden this Summer. Jamie helps out with the watering and the picking and is learning so much. And I’m loving the fresh beans, cucumber and corns he brings home.


 I used Pink Paislee's Sweetness collection on this, plus a variety of other odds and ends.


The background started out being the brown ledger paper from the collection (which I loved!) but I got a big splotch of cream paint on it right at the end of making my page. And I simply could not work out how to cover it up. So the whole thing got pulled apart and recreated on the BasicGrey paper. It looks lovely anyway, but who would have thought I would wreck the thing in the home straight! Gah!

And the second page is one of Nicole's little girl, Jazz. Ah, I do love making girly pages every now and then.
