Perfect day - perfect embellishment

Another double layout using an Ocotober Scrap-room kit and a layout designed by DT member - Jenny Price. The colour of the patterned paper went so well with the clothes Elizabeth and Fiona were wearing. Whilst I was looking for chipboard letters for the title, the Scenic Route chipboard phrase "perfect day" fell on the table. Fortunately I hadn't started my journalling so was able to incorporate it.

Two more kits to use so I can be entered into this month's drawing for some extra goodies.

Card class done, now time to do some scrapping

I spent all last week getting ready for my card class on Saturday so this week I've time for some scrapping before we go on holiday on Saturday.
I've been using the first of this month's kits from scrap-room and it is crate paper cowgirl.

I only recently found some photos from the 1980s. I didn't think I had any. I particularly like the photos of Joanne on the waterslide. Dad told me he couldn't remember what year this holiday was, but 10 minutes later he rang back having looked through old passports - he also asked if I'd given him back my unused pesetas.

Pencil art

I have just seen this pencil art in the 2peas gallery and the other examples on the lady's gallery are lovely too. I wonder how easy they'd be to make for teachers' Xmas presents? The website is

Scrapaholics November 2006

I thought I'd start a blog to spread the Scrapaholics news as I can't seem to send pictures of layouts to everyone as the files are sometimes too big. So here's the November news:

November kit

Here's a layout done by Sarah. The November kit is using GLITTER. The contents include:
1 x White card
1 x Blue card
1 x Green card
1 x Arctic Frog Fleece Mittens
1 x Arctic Frog Ski Parka
Piece of white satin ribbon
1 x bag of lush Crystal Glitter
3 x Snowflake charms

So dig out those skiing photos. If you don't have skiing photos you can use the papers for children's activities - particularly those who have boys.

The November meeting is on Tuesday, 14 November at La Pouquelaye Community Centre from 7.30 pm. Please let me know by 24 Ocotber if you would like a kit.

Saturday crop
Before our next evening meeting there is a crop on Saturday, 4 November at the Eastern good Companions Club in St Clement. The cost will be £5 per person. Again please let me know by 24 October if you are coming as we're away at half term.

I am going to place another Bazzill order next week so please let me know if there's anything you'd like me to order for you.

St Peter's Garden Centre
This month's theme is harvest so do enter as there weren't many entries last month. The monthly prize is £50 to spend at the garden centre with an overall prize and runner up in December.
