A couple of days ago I went craft shopping with a good friend... probably not such a good idea as I couldn't help myself especially when it came to these xmas stamps from stampersanonymous:

For the above I have stamped them using momento brown onto cream card and distressed round the edges with vintage photo

Photo's added

I have got my large amount of brown paper bags with scrapbook kits (12x12) down to a handful!!  Don't mention all the other projects...

I now have over two boxes of scrapbook pages that need photos so here are a few that I have recently added photo's to all that's left is the journalling:

 The first layout was from a class where we had to pick our own papers, i've had this layout for ages without pics as I liked it so much and didn't know what to do with it!!  I decided on the pics because they were taken in autumn on a visit to Prague.

I have a number of pages made from these papers which were all taken in Ibiza here are a couple:

The following layout had the pic chosen by a friend I added a couple of other photo's that hopefully hide the fact that I stuck the papers on wonky :)

 I have been fortunate enough to have had the opportunity to scan a lot of the families older pics this is one of my mum taken in the 70's which I have scrapped before but I love the pic.  On this layout the pic is the same one is colour and one is black and white

This is my first scrapbook page of baby who is now 6 months old and limits the amount of crafting I get done!
