Sources of inspiration!

Sometimes you just need something to give you a bit of inspiration & a shove in the right direction! Shimelle has had a weekend of challenges over at her blog so it was a great excuse to get creative......

This challenge was all about going retro & using an old photo - this one was part of a home studio sitting that my brother & I did!!!!!

This next challenge was all about space & leaving plenty of it!!

The final challenge from Shimelle was about reflecting a current 'trend' in the pages that you are doing - for me it's definitely bunting!

And if Shimelle's inspiration wasn't enough, I also used the latest challenge over at Sarah's Blog for my final share - 5 different patterned papers all from Basic Grey's Oliver range

Why not have a bash yourself & re-kindle your mojo!!

Now that I have this space, I can start to share some of the things I like to do when I get those scarce few minutes to myself!

Scrapbooking has been a part of my life for a good few years now and I allow myself to indulge in monthly kits from here. Below are a few of my more recent creations & I look forward to sharing more in the future!

The first is of Tom whilst on holiday in France last year - I used up an old supply of 'Recess' papers from Basic Grey

more fiddling.......!!

Ok, going to try something else now.......

Trying things out!!

Just thought I'd have a go at putting a picture in - getting a bit more technical now so bear with me!! OMG it worked!! It's me at Whitby, in the sunshine whilst away getting creative with the girls!

New beginnings

Having long admired my chums who have & maintain blogs, I thought I would give it another go! Please bear with me whilst I get to grips with how it all works & hopfully in the not too distant future there might be something worth looking at on these pages! Off to have a play now x
