All caught up

I have taken the photos so here they are. Mixture of SLYMI and some just for me!

SLYMI wk 24-use felt. This photo is of me and my hubby and kids at Bembridge Duver. My sister took the pic for me as i wanted a photo of all of us together as i am normally the one behind the camera. The paper was Imaginese, chipboard frame-Love Elsie, Queen & Co black felt, We R memory keepers-pink felt, Fancy pants rub ons and journalling tag and doodlebug alphas.

SLYMI wk 25-scrap in blue & green. I love this photo of my sister and my daughter together. They are so alike, I always say she should have been her daughter! They look alike, act alike and have the same attitude, hence the title! The papers are We R memory keepers as are the chipboard and rub ons, from the Tiffanys range(from my last ever kit from Scrapbook apprentice..booo!) The alphas are Doodlebug.

SLYMI wk 26-scrap with stickers. This is a photo of our puppy Willow enjoying the last bit of my icecream. The papers are Papermania. Ice lolly stickers are Doodlebug, i have used letter stickers from Tesco and the chipboard is RiffRaff.

SLYMI wk 27-scrap a happy story. This one isnt really a happy story but a photo of my kids, who make me happy. Papers are Fancypants-Delight, C/S is Core'dinations whitewash, Basic grey rubons and RiffRaff chipboard. I painted the Doodlebug alphas to match the colour scheme and added primas, buttons and some lovely folksy ribbon i bought at a little shop called My Home in Newport on the IOW(great Store!!)
SLYMI wk 28-Scrap with a needle & thread. I am not that pleased with this LO. I wanted to scrap some photos of the quilts i have made. All the photos were pre digi and my scanner doesnt work so i had to cut up the orginals and they are all different sizes and not really great photos!! Its amazing how much better my photos have been since i started scrapbooking!! I used scraps of papers, i cant even remember what they are! I used my slice for the title and the little index tabs. I did some stitching on the page and then cheated and drew the stitches on!

SLYMI wk 29-Scrap with 3. I used 3 papers, 3 owls and three words in my title. The photo is my sis at Firestone copse earlier this year. The papers were Basic Grey and Papermania, chipboard owl from RiffRaff and the other two owls were cut out of some other paper scraps i had. I used vellum in my DS's Dymo label maker for my journalling, PM alphas and a prima flower. I cut the tree out freehand and layered some ribbon along the bottom of it to look like the muddy forest floor.

And finally, one just for the album! My two wonderful kiddies at Bembridge Duver. The papers and notecard are Fancypants-the daily grind &doodles, Fancypants rubons and Studio G stamps. The alphas are thickers and PM.

Well, thats me all caught up now except to find the time to do SLYMI wk 30 sometime this week! Hope everybody is having a good summer holiday!
