I really battle to keep up with which pages I have blogged about ... Here are some recent pages I completed ...

 I cleverly tucked the journaling inside this pamphlet.

 I used this page by my friend Lynette Jacobs as inspiration

I LOVE this layout of my beautiful boy!

This morning I slept in a bit and when I got up my hunny was watching "How It's Made" so I watched a bit with him.  I then jumped in the shower and we went down to The Glen and had a Wimpy breakfast before I gave blood.  We popped over the Builder's Warehouse quickly then came home where I have been catching up on Facebook etc.  I am now going back to my craft table as I have one more lot of photos to do to finish off 2017.

Hope you are all having a wonderful day.

Here is a layout I started when we were in Betty's Bay and finished off last night ~ I used one of the stencils I bought yesterday and also my favourite embellishment = sewing!!!


I have done so many pages in the past month that it is difficult to keep track of which ones I have blogged about and which I still need to show you ... Well here are 4 that were sitting in my blog folder on my computer ...

While looking through Debbi Tehrani's blog I saw this gorgeous layout which became my inspiration for my page about Jo and Scotty coming to tell us they had a date for the birth of their baby.  I just love how my page came out.
 I don't know when I did this page about my 50th but it was sitting in the blog file so here it is ... I did copy this layout from one in my inspiration folders.
 This was our first day in New Zealand when we visited the Strawberry Farm and then walked on the black beach where I took a nasty tumble ...  I love the photo of my hunny with the crashing wave that Helena managed to capture.
I was inspired by this PageMaps page from their March edition and used it for the layout about our visit to Burger Fuel while in New Zealand in December.  I used a serviette from Burger Fuel on the layout and cut the logo out of a doofer (which is a cardboard holder to make the burgers easier to manage) and stuck it on top of the log on the serviette for some colour.

INSPIRATION HITS! (Lynette Jacobs and CSI)

There is a very exciting Scrapbook Challenge website ... CSI: Colour, Stories, Inspiration where they post challenges twice a month.  My friend Lynette Jacobs often posts on her blog about the challenge so I had a look at Case File 251 this month when she had posted her layout on her blog and decided to play along ... Of course her masterpiece inspired me and I used it as my inspiration for my layout.

Here is Lynette's masterpiece:

 And here is my interpretation ...


I love to scrapbook and my recent pages ... for me at least ... showcase that love.

Here are a couple of layouts I did this week ...

I only got into bed at 3am this morning because I was at my craft table and having a ball.
I saw this picture on my desk of a page that my friend Lynette Jacobs did and I immediately started working on a page using this as inspiration ...

My interpretation ...

Debbie Tehrani runs the CSI Challenge (Color, Stories, Inspiration) and has a blog Called Little Scraps of Magic ... When I went onto her blog to have a look around I just loved the design on her blog page and it inspired these borders on my Gingerbread page from our trip to New Zealand in December 2017.


This afternoon was our bi-monthly Crochet Get-Together ~ Unfortunately some of the girls couldn't make.

We had decided to meet at Walter Sisulu Botanical Gardens in Roodepoort ... LOVE this place.

I asked Wendy to join Ali and me and Patsy joined us a bit later.  We had a lovely lunch and crocheted under the trees until the weather suddenly turned and we moved inside to drink another latte and have some dessert.

What an awesome day!!!!

 Here we are being VERY productive!!!
