project life 2014 | week 17

11 May 2014

We are fully into Spring mode here in the Rhone Alpes but this week we had a trip to Mont Blanc where there still is snow much higher up. Although not that far away from home, it's interesting to observe the different architecture of the houses and buildings. We visited Chamonix, a big tourist attraction with the winter sports and the glacier. It was breathtakingly beautiful but I'm happy with occasional snow during the winter!

I didn't take many photos this week as it was the first week of school holiday but we bought a new patio set for the summer!

Here are my pages and some detail shots ~

I used my Studio Calico kits this week and one from Papertrey Ink for the title card.

Thanks for looking and have a great week.x

national scrapbook day 2014

4 May 2014

Well I've had lots of fun this weekend ! I went to a mini album class on Friday night with a scrapping friend and I've been scrapping most of the weekend :) Yesterday I completed my Project Life spread for week 17 and started on a couple of scrap layouts using some of the challenge prompts over at Studio Calico.

This is the first layout that I completed ~


It feels like I've been making lots of cards lately with some birthdays coming up so it was nice to get back in scrapping mode. For this layout I used my Studio Calico April scrapbook kit called Bluegrass Farm. Lots of lovely reds and blues, so I teamed them up with black and white photos of a recent selfie :)

So then I just had to scrap a layout around Molly losing her two front teeth and after years of travelling on London Underground, thought it would fun to borrow the phrase from the train announcements.  Again I used my Bluegrass Farm kit ~


When I first looked at the kit I thought I might scrap boy photos because of the colours ! Well I was wrong, scrapping two girly layouts :)

The photos are taken with my iPhone so probably not as clear as normal but you get the idea! I was joining in with the Big Picture Class so it was easy to upload to instagram via the phone.

Hope you had a good scrapping weekend too, thanks for looking.x

project life 2014 | week 16

1 May 2014

So here I am again ! Two days in a row and fulfilling my promise of bringing my Project Life posts up to date.

So week 16 included Easter and the egg hunt and a trip to Lyon for Zachary's diabetes check up. That went very well and we even had a quick shopping trip and lunch at Ikea. The fun was certainly intensified by the fact that my car's electric window has stopped working, so there was some negotiating to do at the motorway tool booths! I guess it's time for a new car (watch this space!)

My New Year Resolution of getting out on my bike more is taking shape and I have finally finished a crochet blanket that I promised Noah last year ! Here are my pages, I used Studio Calico's Bluegrass Farm Project Life kit to complete them ...

I dipped into my stash for a couple of things, the metal bicycle is from Studio Calico's add on Amsterdam kit from last year and there are a couple of cards from an older CitrusTwist kit.

Thanks for looking and have a great week.x
