Such a long time since I posted anything on here....unfortunately life has been rather manic with builders and family!
But here are a couple of pages I have managed to finish recently. The first I did at Cropping Bug - a new crop held in the Reading Rooms in Billericay. It was lovely to be a punter at a crop instead of running one and I've already paid my money for next month...thanks to Nina for organising a lovely evening.

Using this sketch by Shimelle as a starting point - this page shows photos from a glorious day's sailing (probably the best we've had since having the children) but the hidden journaling tells the story of our later trip to casualty when Tom tripped and ended up underneath the boat and trailer. Thankfully he had no bones broken and although he limped for a couple of weeks he is now fine and back to trampolining lessons....and he also wants to go sailing again which is good:)

Supplies: Paper - Creative Memories, We R Memory Keepers, Echo Park; Stickers & Alphas - We R Memory Keepers, Echo Park, Doodlebug, Artoz; Stamps - Anita's, Danette Johnson; Border punch - Martha Stewart, fiskars 'threading water';

And I made this page as a demo for an 'introduction to scrapbooking' session for the local WI. I had a lovely time on Monday morning with the Tile Kiln Women's Institute (nice cake!)and may have some converts to scrapping. I did a step by step using this sketch and it was lovely to see how different each layout was, even from the same starting point.
