I finally made it !!!!!!


I got to grab a few things from the walk in fridge  {aka my crafty space } and did a couple of pages yesterday, not exactly what I would have produced if I was sat in there living my 'happy' life, but you have to take what you can get don't you. These photo of my three eldest grandkiddos are obviously when they were really young, but they have always been so close, and still are, the boys are at the same college, both well over six feet tall and play footie together as well and of course you all know about my sweet girl Mia, Little Bo herself. Now at Uni and doing so well.

I used a stencil I bought from the works, some TH stickers and lots of bits and bobs from my stash. Got to love the grandkids.
Now this one is of Carla my daughter when she went to Turkey last year, a good time was had by all, I love this photo its so natural. They were on some boats where they all get blasted with with lots of water, she loved it.

Thats all for now, I hope and pray that I can make  a nice card soon, I am really desperate to colour up something, anything haha...see you all soon. 
Footnote; Just thought I should add that all the pics here were copied on my new Sprocket, I bought after Christmas with some vouchers I got, I am over the moon with it, well worth the money, its a pocket printer for those of you not heard of it yet, zero ink too, the papers are a slight bit pricy but I am happy with it. Going all over the house taking pictures on my phone to re-print on this nifty little thing...

It's nice to see you back too. Great pages and I need to start thinking about using photos in my art journals as I have so many of them, especially of the grandchildren. Hope to see you here again soon. Take care x

Beautiful pages Janette, lovely photos and sentiments, the stencilled backgrounds look fabulous without overpowering the photo- which is something I struggle with. It's always so enjoyable to look back at family photos and remember happy times. So pleased you managed to get some crafting time without freezing- I'm sure you feel much better for it!

A FABulous way to say your memories and photo's. To many photo's on sticks and computers these days {sign of the times} It's so nice to go through what I call the 'old way' of seeing them. My Grandchildren are all so much taller than me! Hubby was tall, the boys are in a league of their own. At least I can spot them in a full room lol.
Right, off to look at the Sprocket now. x

Thanks for sharing your precious memories in such a beautiful way. Looking at these pages will spur memories for years to come. Thanks for the info on the Sprocket, there seem to be so many on the market...a bit overwhelming. Hope it warms up for you.
