Cocoa Vanilla Studio

Cocoa Vanilla Studio are one of my favourite all time paper manufacterers and this Wild at Heart range was flying off the shelves at Hey Little Magpie & I can totally see why. I used this range for my May blog post.


Recently on a trip to Paris I got to see Monets Water lilies for the first time, I could have looked at them for hours, a real highlight of my trip so I had to scrap them when I saw this watercolored background.

I didn't want to cover it totally so added a die cut over it allowing the paper to show through.

In this range there is a pack of assorted frames, this is usually the type of embellishment I hoard so I made myself use 7 on this page!

3 frames hold photos from our day trip & another some journalling, the rest Ive used ephemera, rubber shapes and thread to embellish.
Many thanks for looking x

HLM Challenge

A couple of weeks ago it was my turn to set a challenge on the Hey Little Magpie scrapbooking and Inspiration Facebook page.
The challenge is now over but thought Id share the page here with you now.
You & Me.

 The challenge was to use 2 or more 4x3 journaling or project life cards on a card, layout or project.
I used the 4x3 cards from a Cocoa Vanilla Studio cut apart sheet as the basis of my page before embellishing with puffy stickers, die cuts & flair.
Many thanks for looking x

Its been a while...

It certainly has been a while since I last blogged, life has a funny way of getting in the way some how & even with the best intentions something has to give.
To be honest Im not sure people really read blogs so much any more now with FB & IG etc but I'm going to try to keep this going if I can x
This year Im continuing with Project Life as my main way of documenting my family using pretty much the same formula as the last few years & here are my January pages including...
 ... golf, OLW, lunch out...
...Graduation evening, boys night out, holiday planning, back to Uni...
... scrapbooking retreat, awards night, school trip, big feet!... 
...Iceland, rugby, poorly Dad...

Many thanks for looking x
