Starting point!

When I get stuck on where to start, when I find myself staring at pieces of paper but don't know how to put them together, Shimelle's Starting Points can be just the thing.
here is her's - a very simple beginning - and below is my end result. A bit of a double whammy as I was able to use up some of my build-up of stash from Sarah's Cards!! This particular selection was from the May kit, MME Stella & Rose!

Thanks for looking x

It's been a while!!

Crikey! can't believe a whole month has passed me by and only just getting round to adding some holiday photos and some stuff I've been playing with too!

The boys enjoying the pool at our first site on the Vendee

This has to be one of my favourite photos!!

Can't take the credit for this one! Hubby is pretty nifty with a camera!

No.2 son at Chinon, Loire Valley

No.1 Son also at Chinon, but in the depths rather than up top!!

Sculpture "The Braves" at Omaha Beach, Normandy

So, that's a snippet from holidays but I've also played with paper!!

This was based on a sketch over at Shimelle's Blog - you can find her version here. I chose to rotate it as I had landscape photo's and used the acetate doily in place of the cardstock die-cut

Another LO on greeny background (I seem to have had a run on this colour quite by accident!!) & again helped along by Shimelle - this time from a starting point. I'm not sure how happy I am about the full on journalling as I don't usually 'bare my soul' & I'm not a fan of my own writing and it's gone rather wonky but hey ho!
