It’s THAT time again!!!!

Another month has rolled by…it’s the 2nd May today so I’m actually a day late with this post on two counts!!!

1 DP May Kit Firstly, Mays kit is up for grabs over at Dixie Pieces! Called ‘Sticks & Stones’ it includes some wonderful & ‘different’ items, & has been great fun to work with!



Here is what I put together…

2 Crows Nest
This first one was fun to do as I tried to extend the lines of rope in the photo out onto the LO, using the May Arts blue twine from the kit. 

3 Hi Mummy I'm Home!
More photo’s long overdue for scrapping in LO #2!!  Nathan in 2001!!

4 Remember 
This third LO has been in mind since I first started scrapping…this photo was taken on the day we heard that Diana, Princess of Wales, had been killed. It was a beautiful day spent visiting friends but overshadowed by the tragic news. Alex was just a year old & of course, doesn’t remember anything! So this LO is just to document what we, as a family, were doing on this historical day.

& Finally two cards…

5 hello card






6 New Home Card



…to check out full details of the kit pop on over to the Dixie Pieces home page...& to see what my fellow DT Members came up with, do drop by the DT Projects Gallery while you’re there.

7 Love Actually Secondly, there’s a fresh challenge up over at ‘From Screen 2 Scrap’. This months inspiration comes from the movie poster for ‘Love Actually’. I loved this film & I loved the simplicity of the poster too!

Shazza had set the following criteria…

1. Include a red bow….2. Name the people that you love in the photo’s…& 3. Use a journaling tag!

I did quite a literal ‘lift’ of the poster to showcase four photo’s taken on the day Alex as born…

8 First Grandson

So that’s me up to date with sharing my recent creativity with you!! Looking back over this post I think I must get some more recent photo’s out to scrap next!!! I have several from his past weekend that will do perfectly!!  But I’ll fill you in on that topic tomorrow!!

Thanks for stopping by & I do hope you’ll be back soon!  : )
