Come on Ladies (or gents) give it a try!

I know most of my friends are cardmakers and haven't been bitten by the scrapbooking bug yet but I just want to encourage you all to have a go!
It is really good fun and you can use all your cardmaking techniques!
I was a cardmaker first and then found scrapbooking!
I still love making cards but sometimes I end up with loads of cards and no-one to send them to! Scrapbooking is another way to use my crafting and create pages that give me great pleasure and a great way to show off photos that would just be stuck in a box.
Come on over to From Screen 2 Scrap
each month we have a film poster to use as inspiration plus some extra criteria to follow.
There are lots of great pages by the talented design team to give you extra ideas!
Here is another look at this months poster.........

Slimmer of the Week!

Hi guys. Back from my Slimming World class and I am slimmer of the week this week! I've lost another 3 lbs this week which takes my total to 9 1/2 lbs! Yay me!

I do hope that the chocolate manufacturers don't go out of business now I am on a diet! Considering how much I used to eat it is a slight possibility!

If you are struggling with the pounds like me and want some help, check out to find your nearest class.

Congratulations to my mum aswell! She lost another pound this week! Well done Mum!

New Challenge over at from Screen 2 Scrap!

Here is the new poster to take your inspiration from for this months challenge over at From Screen 2 Scrap

Added criteria - Use blue or red cardstock, use 1 piece of patterned paper, two word title.

Here is my take on this months challenge.

Blue or Red cardstock - check
One piece patterned paper - check
Two word title - check
I took my inspiration from the Home Alone poster by Changing the title to All Alone and using a dark background like they did on the poster. The poster also has bright colours in the title and Macaulay Culkin's jumper, as my photo was quite dark and moody I used my patterned paper to add the colour and used the ribbon to try and create a window effect as in the poster. As usual I had to add a bit of bling with the glitter stickers for the title and a few gems. I put my journaling on tag hidden behind the photo.
PP - Die cuts with a view. Glitter alphabet stickers - Me and my big ideas, Urban Bling. Ribbon, flowers and gems from stash.
And here is the hidden journaling...

Journaling reads - I love this picture of gemma taken at West Kirby Beach. Feb. 05. Whilst it looks in the photo as though she is alone, stranded in the middle of nowhere. She is actually about two minutes from the Prom with a busy Fish and Chip Shop and lots of families with their buckets and spades! We came to the beach that day to fly Zoe's kite and Gemma didn't want to come, she had the right hump when we got there but soon started to enjoy walking along the beach and even had a go at flying the kite!Gemma doesn't like this photo because she thinks she looks awful with no make up. I love it because I love the way her natural beauty shines through! So sorry Gem this is definitely one for the album!
The other members of the Design Team have all made some beautiful pages to give you more inspiration so please go and have a look at their lovely work! At

From Screen 2 Scrap

Come on everyone, come and have a go. And to all my cardmaking friends out there, cards are getting so big they are just like scrapbook pages now! All you have to do is add a photo! So lets put all your cardmaking talent to another use and preserve your memories in the process! If you decide to have a go let Shazza know I sent you!
Take care,

My rainbow

Your rainbow is strongly shaded violet.


What is says about you: You are a creative person. You appreciate beauty and craftsmanship. You are patient and will keep trying to understand something until you've mastered it.

I am Blue- it's not as bad as it sounds

You Are A Blue Girl
Relationships and feelings are the most important things to you.
You are empathetic and accepting - and good at avoiding conflict.
If someone close to you is in pain, it makes you hurt as well.
You try to heal the ones you love with your kind and open heart.

You are The Empress

Beauty, happiness, pleasure, success, luxury, dissipation.

The Empress is associated with Venus, the feminine planet, so it represents, beauty, charm, pleasure, luxury, and delight. You may be good at home decorating, art or anything to do with making things beautiful.

The Empress is a creator, be it creation of life, of romance, of art or business. While the Magician is the primal spark, the idea made real, and the High Priestess is the one who gives the idea a form, the Empress is the womb where it gestates and grows till it is ready to be born. This is why her symbol is Venus, goddess of beautiful things as well as love. Even so, the Empress is more Demeter, goddess of abundance, then sensual Venus. She is the giver of Earthly gifts, yet at the same time, she can, in anger withhold, as Demeter did when her daughter, Persephone, was kidnapped. In fury and grief, she kept the Earth barren till her child was returned to her.
