Scrapping Overload :)

I got on a bit of a scrapping roll yesterday...love it when that happens :)

I started with a DT task (which I will show you next week) and then just kept on going! This is what I made...


I've loved (and have been collecting...oops!) the Basic Grey doilies since they were first released, but hadn't actually used any, so that was my challenge to myself. This one is from the Lemonade collection, and I couldn't bear to cut it, so added some simple bits and pieces and called it good.

Still loving the look of ribbons and pins...these ones are by Making Memories, as is the journal block.
On Thursday I was flitting around, cleaning up the house before my husband flew in, and it occurred to me that I should document the little rituals I do on "fly in" day....so I wrote a list right there and then.

Over the years I've done several LOs about "fly out" day which have been a bit blues-y and sad, so thought a light hearted look at "fly in" day would be fun! The paper I've used is so sweet and cute, and perfect for the look I wanted.


I've used Bo Bunny Love Bandit paper, AC thickers, My Little Shoebox Tiny alphas, Basic Grey Woollie Owl, and the tree is by October Afternoon.
While I had the Basic Grey Lemonade range sitting on my desk, I made another LO! (I tell you, I was seriously inspired by this point LOL)


I've blurred the faces since I don't have parent's permission to show them...and I promise it is straight in real life! This is mostly from the Lemonade range-Pretty Petals, Sunshine, chipboard, buttons and the doily- with a bit of Making Memories, American Crafts and Prima thrown in.

My Snapshots in June photo for today...


...SMIGGLE! I went to Smiggle to buy a gift today...the rows of bright colours are enough to make anyone happy :)
I'm clearing off my scrapping desk...and bringing out my fabric stash.
Let the fun continue....

P.S. A note to Vanessa...so glad the Weetbix slice was a hit :) and yes, it is totally delicious made with lemon instead of orange! Hugs to you and your sweet boys xxx

I am loving the doiley you have used in your LO - no wonder you couldn't bear to cut into it! Looks like a busy and productive day!
