" x " marks the spot.....and a Giveaway!

I spent a whole day at the Papermaze crop in Otley yesterday and completed this layout...I know it doesn't look much but there is always so much chatting and eating cake to fit in too......

 The sketch I used is the latest challenge from ATDML

I've used the Max and Whiskers range of papers by Basic Grey and some very old cork alpha "scrabble" tiles that I re-discovered during my latest tidy-up session! There are tons in the box, so they will probably appear quite often now...

If you like GIVEAWAYS.....pop over to THIS BLOG to have a look at the blog candy on offer from the amazing Lou Collins. All you have to do is become a follower of her blog and link the giveaway to your own blog, and you have till the 28th Feb to enter.Good Luck!

Fun in the Sun.....

That is a title that you see alot!  It's a good one.....
I have scraplifted a few elements for this page from several layouts that I have seen on my frequent blog-hops!
However, I think I should credit Anna parker for inspiring this layout.
In her gallery on 2 peas, you will see a variety of sunbursts and bunting, which has been a very popular trend.....I'm just a little slow in catching on!

I love this photo, taken last makes me want to put my sunglasses on !

The patterned paper is October Afternoon and the letter stickers are Echo Park.

On A Sunny Day.......

This photo was taken in the Lake District in Aug last summer when My husband's Grandpa celebrated his 100th Birthday!
Pictured here are 4 of his great grandchildren,our daughters and their 1st cousins.
They posed for the local newspaper photographer and had a chance to see the telegram from the Queen! 
All in all a great day.

The patterned papers are from Echo Park - Sweet Summer Time range.
