I am determined to finish an album this year. Our last family holiday was to Kefalonia and I have started an 8x8 album. I'm finding it a little more difficult than the 12x12 as I like to put more piccies on each page. These 2 pages pages show one of the most beautiful views I have ever seen and my Husband's amazement at the size of the fruit and veg available.

I've just completed this page for the Scrapbook Challenge hosted by Lesely over at Craftswap Forum. For this cahllenge we had to use 1 photo, 2 patterned papers, something metal and some journalling. Although this photo was taken quite a few years ago, I still see the same grumpy face on occasions.

This card is for the My Time to Craft Challenge.
I have used a stamp that was free on a magazine, triple embossed in gold and pressed in the image. Finished with gold swirly background paper, a rub on message and gold eyelets in the corners.

My daughter is 9 years old and has recently become interested in making her own jewellery. She also likes to make cards too, when I let her free with my stash. Here is a beautiful memory wire bracelet she has made along with a card, for a friend who's birthday is approaching. I think I'll start putting my order in.

Using the free set of stamps from Cardmaking & papercraft magazine, here is a valentine card that I've made. I stamped the heart image twice and then embossed in sea foam white and layered the hearts. Added a rub on message and stamped the little flourish also from the same free set.

What a lot of snow we've had overnight. We had a sprinkling yesterday, but now have about 6 inches and it's still snowing. OH couldn't go to work as he works outside, my daughter's school is closed and I went into work this morning at 7.45 to ring around the parent's to say the playgroup has closed too. Here are some of the piccies I took on my walk to work...the colour's not good, but it was early morning.
