Mini Book.

Here is the mini book I have made of our holidays in the Alpes. I have used mostly Kesi Art papers and the front and back covers are covered with a fake wook plastic thing that I bought in a DIY shop a long time ago. I really like the result and we have already shown it to many friends. Even Andrew likes it !! yehhee !!

I think there might be a spelling mistake on that one, I will have to check it out !!

I would like to use this page to write something about them at their respective ages.

I hope you like too !!

Speak to  you soon

I am back !!

I know, I haven't blogged for a long while but I have just come back from holiday in France. We had an amazing time starting off at my parent's in Brittany, then on to The French Alpes and the Swiss Alpes. We finished our holidays with two nights in Strasbourg. Really, it was great ! I feel all refreshed, ready to start the new term ! ( well, kind of ! ).
I didn't get any chance to scrap while I was away but I took hundreds of pictures and I did manage to sneak in a few scrapbooking shops. I found this French brand called Kesi Art and it was love at first sight ! I have already made a mini book which I will show you tomorrow if I get a chance but for now, you will have just have to make do with some of my pictures !!

Sunshine !!

Sunshine at last. It feels wonderful to be at last able to enjoy the garden and to go for long cycle rides. Not much time for scrapbooking though !! I'd rather be outside while it lasts !

I still got a chance to do a page for Sketchy Thursdays. I always find their sketches inspiring and Andrew had found a set a scan pictures as he was tidying the garage ( I know, what on earth were these pictures doing in the garage !! ) that were perfect for a multi picture page. Anyway, here is the sketch...

7.28 sketch challenge

and here is my page ...

It isn't my favorite page of all time but I like it and I am glad Andrew tidied the garage and found these cute little pictures again !!

Enjoy the warm weather
