Sharing some more pages

So whilst I was a little quiet between Autumn and Christmas on my blog I did manage a few pages and here are another couple.  I'd put together my own kit using mostly Amy Tangerine Yes Please papers, some of the co-ordinating embellishments plus some other bits from my stash.

First up is"famfie" - I'm sure this word will make an entry in the Oxford dictionary soon but for now it's a slang word for a family selfie!

This was us on the last day of holiday in Kefalonia last May.  I love the way taking a picture like this makes us all laugh.

Top of the Tower - The other page I'm sharing today was taken stood on the glass floor of the Blackpool Tower.  

We had taken 60 Brownies from our village for a sleepover and the following morning when I saw my girls stood on the glass with no fear there was no way I could say no!  I was pleased I was able to incorporate a postcard of the tower and a badge I bought in the souvenir shop on the page.

I've one more page made with this kit which I'll share in the next day or two.  Meanwhile it's half term here so back to chilling, watching films, scrapping and a little prom dress shopping :)

One photo and twenty words

This girl.  She continues to amaze me.  Her resilience is so great.  She is a star.  She is something special.

I'm linking up with Abi today for meme of posting one photo and describing it in twenty words. Apologies for my emotional post today but she's been away over the weekend, has been struggling with anxiety and I missed her and worried about her loads!

Some pages to share

As I've been a bit remiss with my blogging I thought I'd best share some of the pages I made last month...

This is the island of Spinalonga made famous in Victoria Hislop's novel The Island (If you've not read it I can't recommend it highly enough).   I'd put together a kit for myself with mostly Amy Tangerine "yes please" plus some embellishments of my own to use up.  The sketch was the one I'd set for our sketch challenge group...

 I assure you this page is straight in real life!  

To go with the page I put together 3 pocket pages with photos from the island itself and an information leaflet plus our tour tickets.  I have yet to add journalling which I am still thinking about as I found the place very moving.

The other page I have to share is also a sketchy scrappers page using up a Gossamer Blue kit

This was the sketch set by Gemma...

And this is what I came up with adding a few extra bits from my own stash.  The photos are of Josh on the same holiday enjoying the spheres on the water in the water park we visited...

Back soon with more pages to share.  Thanks for stopping by.
