Journalling my Christmas

My fantastic kit came yesterday from Shimelle's shop, bit of a splurge buy for me (being a digi girl) but wowee, worth every penny. So this morning I decided on my page size (8.5" x 6") and made up my book. The pages are all black to really make the kit's pastel colours pop and I bound it with my Bind It All. And now I've done my cover....

Mona Lisa?

I took this photo of my friend when we had a night out last year and when I put it on my PC I laughed at how she looked like the Mona Lisa. It's sat on my hard drive until this perfect kit came out...***Parisian Holiday***a collab by the designers at Oscraps

Our scanner conked out (so did the heating and hot water - but that's another story) and the new one is really good and so I've scanned a few of Zoe's (pre digi camera) baby photos for scrapping....

Here she is at, I'm guessing, about 8 weeks old...

The kit is Balance is Beautiful by Dawn Inskip (see store links on previous post)

And now (as promised ages ago) a photo of my new car...

Our Pumpkin

When Kev brought home this pumpkin I thought it was a funny shape but actually it really worked as a carved lantern. Its sat outside on Halloween night and was much admired!

I used 'Boo' and 'Date stamps' by Dawn Inskip, available at Pickleberrypop.
