this house

Another one done, woo hoo! I felt like doing something a bit different, you know, not the kids ;D hehe 
It looks a bit different these days but I have actually been lucky enough to go through this house as we still know the owners & it is such a special feeling to be in the house where your grandfather was born & then raised his own family! They even have 2 old milk cans , 1 with my grandads name on it & 1 with his fathers name on it plus lots of the old memorabilia from the apple orchard. Nan & I were there last year & she told me lots of stories & things. Anyhoo, I am rambling a bit now...
I have completed this lo for the challenge at Scrap365 & used almost a whole sheet of stickers from my counterfeit kit challenge at the same time...
 This is the scrap365 sketch & the links are above...
I'm pretty happy with the final result. Thanks for popping by & have a great day..Jx

(heart) my little sister - Stuck?! challenge

Hi there. It's a wet & miserable day here :( .... perfect for scrapping! :D
Only problem is that my wee one was home sick today but did manage to finish this lo for the May 1st challenge over at Stuck?! 
This photo was taken on my sons first day of school & he is in high school now!! 
 this is the sketch & the link....

It's a bit hard to tell but have coloured the chippy with gelatos & then clear embossed. I guess not the best day for taking photos. Anyhoo, thanks for popping by & have a great day..Jx

Lets Get Sketchy week 2 challenge

Ok, so couldn't help myself, I normally like to space my pleasures but finished this lo this afternoon & have decided to post twice in one day :D
I came across this photo last week when I was going through some older photos on the computer & I just LOVE the looks on my darlings faces. Makes me laugh every time I look at it! Would love to know what was going through her mind....

 The sketch over at Let's Get Sketchy was perfect
Thanks for popping by & hope you all have a wonderful weekend..Jx

I'm on a roll now....

Yep, second share for the month..yay!! This one is for the challenge at D-lish scraps. Love the colour combo & it was just perfect for this photo of my dd.

And here is the link & the challenge sketch...

Thanks for looking...Jx

"Selfies" - Purple pumpkin May challenge

Well, I have been getting back into my scrapbooking this month & thoroughly enjoying being back in my "happy space" so thought it was time to share. This lo is for the PP challenge, one of my faves to do.
I just love when I go through the photos on my phone & find these little gems :) although he would probably stop if he knew they ended up here!
 Here is the sketch & the link....

Getting back into it....

Well, while I haven't been blogging for awhile, I have still been spending time in my little happy room :) After seeing a link to a great blog about using up your scraps I got all motivated & have made over 100 cards! Thats the good news, the not so good news is that I still have a LOT of scraps! LOL But, I have missed my scrapbooking so am back this month :D 

Decided to start off with the counterfeit kit challenge & here is my kit....
 This is the counterfeit...
and this

There are a couple more but this was more than enough for me to put a kit together. 
Now off to put together some pages.....
Happy scrapping...Jx
