Krispy Kreme

While I've been away on holiday a Krispy Kreme has opened at Birstall in Leeds. My daughter told me while i was away, "all the girls keep coming into college with, krispy kremes". Then when I went into work yesterday (for the first time since my holiday), all the girls were telling me about it, it's like a phenomenon, every one is going crazy for Krispy Kreme's, it is actually causing traffic jams and blocking the road. So last night, Robyn and I decided to go to Ikea, which just happens to be up at Birstall. It didn't have anything to do with my dark desire for cakes (in this case donut's) honest. But we did have to trot across the road to Krispy Kreme and while we cued inside the shop (the drive through was choc a block too), a nice young man came down the line with free glazed donut's, it would have been rude not to have one, so I did and then bought a box of twelve assorted. I would have taken a picture to show you lovely said box of assorted donu…

Photography Day

Had a fab day Sunday, went on one of Kirsty Wisemans photography courses. All I can say is, well worth it, I'd recommend it to any one. If you have a digital SLR, but aren't sure what to do with it, then try one of these day courses. Had a great day with some of the girls who have attended Scrapstars before, so it was like a little reunion too, as it's late this is going to be a short post, but here's one of my photo's. By the way, it's supposed to be focused at the back and not at the front.

Been Away ...

Well you may or may not know, but I've just had a little holiday, hence no blogging for two weeks, I did contemplate keeping up the blog while I was away, but with time differences and lack of internet connection, I just didn't get round to it (we moved around a fare bit). Anyhoo were back, and had a great time, straight back into things, emails from and to Rachael who has one class and all the kits all sewn up, emails to Lida and now replies and an exciting project ready from her, she is posting it to me next week. Seeing Kirty on Sunday for her photography course and a big planning chat, and of course Em is on top of things, so all goes well. I also booked Lida (and her daughter Louske's) flights today, well I was up at 5.00 a.m. with Jet Lag so might as well do something useful huh? Also spent my time productively clearing my photo's off my memory cards ready for Sunday. Busy busy, but boy I have missed my scrapping while I've been away, the creative mojo was on…

Using My Birthday Pressie

A thought came to mind this week as I was using my Bellaboo kit which Lesley bought me for my birthday. Last year I borrowed some old photo's of my Nan's from my Dad's cousin to make a 70th birthday album for Dad. In it there were some of those awful school photo's of my sister and me, I swear I'd never seen these particular ones before, perhaps mum gave then all away as they were so scary! But as I had made one layout with the kit (minus photo, there's that naughty habit of mine again), I remembered these photo's that I had copied, and thought, I'm sure that dress I was wearing will look great with these papers. It can be hard to scrap 70's photo's with all the busy colours, but I think they went perfectly and it's inspired me to scrap some more photo's of my family in the 70's, I'm sure a lot of you will have similar ones!
