Property Ladder UKS Cybercrop

Well I have finally managed to finish the Property Ladder Class from the UKS cybercrop. It was a fab class and something that I would not normally do. I bought the kit from Bubbly Funk but improvised with stamps and paints from my own stash. The class was listed as taking 2 hours but I doubt anyone could have done in that time. Its taken me nearly 2 days.

It did make me get my heat gun and embossing powders out. I haven't used them for ages and must use them more as you do get lovely effects

I've used photos of our extended family inside. My husband and I both have children from previous marriage and although my step son and grandchildren live in the south of England I love how all the children and grandchildren get on so well when they come to stay. One big happy family

Swimming with Dolphins

Having a lazy Sunday here but thought I would share these fab photos of my granddaughter swimming with dolphins in America. She has only recently returned from the holiday with her dad and her return was only slightly delayed by the volcanic ash. Her Mum has missed her so much ( and so have I to be honest) but to know what a great time she has had really makes up for that. She is nine now and growing into such a lovely young girl, confident, clever, willing to have a go at anything and very caring. I am so proud of her

Anyway when I get around to it I'm sure that I will enjoy scrapping these photos and the numerous others that her dad has put on a disc for me.

I have a circle journal to finish today - Favourite Books - and I have to say I am a little lacking on ideas at the moment. Al the other entries are so good. I know the book I want to do, Wuthering Heights, its just how to do it??
