That Time Of Year Again

Cannot believe that a whole year has gone by already, and that it will shortly be Easter again.
As my sister was coming up from Luton last Sunday for dinner, on Saturday evening at about 10.30pm I thought I had better make a start on Ethan and Brookes Easter bonnets for school so that she could take them back with her, so I knew they had them in case I cannot get up there before Easter.

Ethans was made using my doodlebug cartridge on the cricut machine with stars and a ladybird from my stash.
Brookes was made with some of the bunnies, flowers, brads and ladybirds from my stash and the pink bunny ears from good old Poundland.

The above photograph of my layout completed at the Scrapology monthly crop is not the best, but as always in a rush. The photograph is of my daughter Beth and her friends as they left their secondary school a couple of years ago. I love the colours of the papers, which are layered up to give dimension but this cannot really be seen from the photograph.

For details of the papers used visit

Organised Me! and Tommys Christening

For once I am organised, will it last, shouldn't think so for one minute.
My sister's birthday is on the 10th March and her card has been ready for over a week.

Once again I used papers from the Kaiser Craft Bonjour Pad, Lace, Prima flower and candi from stash. the sentiment flower and butterflies are layered up on foam pads to give dimension.
I am entering this card on the Lace and Butterflies challenge over at
Going Buggy .

On the 19th February my daughter Beth was Godmother to her second cousin Tommy.
The service was held at St Marys, Stone, Kent. The church was beautiful although very cold. Below are some photos of the day and the cards I made for Tommy from myself and Beth.
