Here's a couple of layouts I finished this morning. I used one of my Sarahs Cards Kits, Cosmo Cricket. Both photos taken at Randalstown Forest.

Holly really does think she is a human!

I'm away to start another layout.

Just a Wee Tour of My Scrap Room

Thought I would copy my friend Sandra and make a video of my scrapping space! Please don't laugh I was nervous and couldn't think what to say which of course is very like me!

Scrapping Again

I've been wanting to take a photo of Sophie in the Bluebells at Portglenone forest for a few years now but each time I remembered, it wasn't the right time for them. This year it actually happened! Just wanted to share the layout I completed today. I just love this photo of Sophs.

Reorganised Scraproom!

This is my new table that Gary bought me for my birthday, it's from Ikea and just fits nicely into this space. Its handy not to have to lift my bigshot down everytime I use it!
 This is the side of the table where I do my scrapping, all my cardstock and patterned card are in the magazine files again from Ikea, I cut the side part and then 12 by 12 fit into them. I also have all my brads, buttons etc in the 2 hardware containers on the top left.
 I just love my trimmer from Rotatrim, it cuts through photos and has a really straight edge.
 This is the other sie of the table with computer etc and I also store all my finished albums on this side!
I will blog again soon with some recent layouts I have completed.

Some of my recent Layouts

I haven't blogged in so long I thought I would show some of my recent layouts. Colour not great in some of them! Blame the photographer (me!)

This was Soph's 12th birthday

These were taken in Caste Espie, Gary and Sophie are so alike.

It was a cold day on the beach!

Same beach!

Sunset in Donegal

Snowdrop Walk in Shane's Castle

Sophie definately isn't a little girl anymore.

Ballycastle Harbour.

Two kids playing in the park in Cushendall.

Thanks for looking

Sliding on a tupperware lid

This was the only thing I could find for Sophs to slide down our slope in the garden. She ended up with two bruises as the lid was a bit small! She had great fun and Holly chased her down the garden nearly every time.

Snow Dog!

Holly is soooo much bigger than she was last year in the snow! She's just over a year old now and loves the snow, eveytime I go into the kitchen she is asking out to play in the snow!

Travelling in the Snow is no Fun!

I was working in Cookstown yesterday and I left there at 1.30, its about 40 miles home and I got home at 6.00! At one stage I travelled 1 mile in 1 hour. Luckily I had the heat on in the jeep and music playing and I think I must have sent 100 texts! I took some photos too. I saw 6 snow ploughs! So a big thank you to local farmers who came out to clear the roads.

Here are some of the photos, the first one is Cookstown town centre at 1.30.

This is the main road from Cookstown to Magherafelt:

A snow plough!

The conditions were the worse I have ever seen so keep safe today if you have to go out.

Over a month

Since I posted. I haven't been doing that much scrapping since going back to work! By the time I get home I'm tired. Although I did take the day off to go to the Kings Hall craft fair. It was smaller than usual and didn't seem quite as busy but it was still a good day out with mum and Sandra, we had a good laugh. I bought a MS punch, flowers, calligraphy pens for Sophs and a pandora bracelet (well not a real one!). Will have to do a layout today in between doing the washing, since Sophs went to High school there seems to be alot more washing, uniform and sports kits. The only problem with that is more ironing!
Just thought I would include a photo of sandra posing in TK Maxx

A few More Layout's

Here are another few layouts I've been doing. Back to work next week so I'll not have as much time for scrapping but I'm pleased I'm actually up to May this year now! Not that I scrap chronlogically but I put the layouts in my scrapbooks in the right order.
