A Cybercrop :-)

Last weekend I played along with a cybercrop over at The Scrapbooking Haven, it's been a while and it was a great thing to kickstart my mojo which had been hiding from me since my return home from our o/s holiday. Here are some of the challenge pages I completed.

Thanks so much for dropping by, hope your start to 2012 is proving productive :-)

Inspired by the amazing Louise Nelson I had a play with the challenge over at 123 this month using some pics I took recently in Edinburgh, Scotland. I have used some Tattered Angels Graphite mist and some Ranger Distress Stain in Weathered Wood. I KindyGlitzed the snowflakes and 'Joy' and used a bit of old 7Gypsies gaffer tape for a splsh of colour.
Thanks so much for dropping by :-)

Kylemore Abbey

In Connemara, County Galway. Spectacular!
We drove the Connemara Loop on this day and got lost on the small roads a couple of times. The weather was damp, overcast, occasionally raining and the scenery everything you expect of Ireland.... lush, green, and sooo beautiful. This is Kylemore Abbey where we stopped for a late lunch. Originally built in 1867 by Mitchell Henry as a romantic gift for his wife who died tragically on holiday in Egypt only 7 years later. In loving memory he built the gothic chapel in 1878, last pic.

I have managed to get back on the scrappy horse finally too so will post a couple of layouts soon.
Thanks so much for dropping by

"We've got your number"

It's the latest theme over at Paper Issues. Suitable for New Year resolutions, birthdays, anniversaries or any other project where you are wanting inspiration using numbers. Here is my contribution, a page done before I went on holidays recently.
Right now I am following Julie's amazing advice and purging & reorganising so it might be a couple of weeks before I can create anything new.... it's a very big job!

thanks for dropping by :-)
