A Snowy Sunrise...

Woke up to a couple inches of snow on the 27th. My dad wanted to go out early to hit the sales. So we got to witness the beautiful sunrise over the snow covered fields.

While we were out I caved and bought a Mambi scrapbook pad, the backing paper is from that.
Paper and tree embellishments came with November's Scrapbook Magazine
\Baker's twine
Papermania pastel buttons and ribbon
Studio Calico veneers

A Belated Merry Christmas!

I hope everyone had a fantastic Christmas and that Father Christmas brought them what they wanted!
I took the opportunity to do plenty of scrappin'...
They're all sort-of scraplifts, from Scrapbook Magazine. The free papers that came with it were irresistable! (Not that I didn't put any effort in with these, mind. I spent an entire DAY last week cutting out the little embellishments that came with it. So much cutting that I lost all feeling in my thumb and it's only now just returned.) The papers are by Nitwit.
This first page is of the Christmas cake I made with my mum, and our table setting for Christmas Day. The only extras I added here are numbered wood veneers.
Not many photos were taken on Christmas Day. So I just used the photos my dad took of me and my boyfriend and mum. I used sizzix 'life made simple' dies to finish off this layout.

 This last page is my favourite, I loved arranging all of the individual embellishments and this was a great opportunity to use up all the Christmassy bits and bobs which I felt didn't really work for card designs.

Spent the weekend in Chester!

We went to see the Christmas market, the lights and the zoo.
It went far too fast! It was a lot of fun, we stayed at Cheshire Oaks which was lovely. Felt like the Christmas Market had been so much better when we've been before, though. On the Sunday at the zoo it was sunny all day and we spent a good hour watching the Red Pandas... an hour well spent!

Holidays Are Coming!

Last Monday, the Coca Cola truck came to Sheffield.
So I made a scrapbook page using the photos I took, inspired by the design on a coca cola can... Red paper and silver paint!
