Christmas 1975 style...

I have decided to do some Christmas scrapping before Christmas because once Boxing day is over I'm ready to pack "Christmas" away, decorations, tree and scrapbook papers.

These photos were taken at the children's Christmas party where my mum worked. My sister and I were both pleased  that when we got there there we found some school friends were at the party too.

It is only looking at the photos now that I have realised that both of our friends were wearing the same dress - was it the favourite dress at M&S that year???

The background papers was from Carolee's Creations and the other papers are Basic Grey, the white scrolls are self adhesive felt and I added gems.

Hello's been a while........

.....since I last blogged. Where did the summer go? And now it seems be be almost time to start thinking about Christmas.

At Scrapbook Sisters we get asked from time to time to make cards for Creative Cardmaking and I have been lucky enough to have cards published in both issue 8 and the Christmas Special this month.

This was in the Christmas specialSEPT 24 033

In edition 8 I made the front cover and had four cards inside.

I was especially pleased to have a layout in the Readers Gallery of Scrapbook Inspirations this month.

I aim to get back to blogging on a regular basis and tomorrow will be a Christmas layout....yes, I know it's a bit early but by the time Christmas is over I've had enough of it and don't want to scrap get ready for several Christmas layouts coming up!

Well, it's good to be back!
