Here is my layout to remember this special gift to himself!!!

This layout was so fun to do, and was based on Lois's sketch at Sisterhood of Scrap. I also incorporated the challenge at All About Me challenge blog!

Here it is.... My un-FORGET-able birthday....

The journalling reads....

my un-forgetable- birthday...
was my 50th that my family forgot! Yes ... they did. So, I went out and bought myself my gold diamond and saphhire bracelet I've wanted for years... and in fact, I bought 2! I couldn't deceide between the gold and the white gold one, so I bought them both. I also happened to spot this gorgeous ring to match... so I bought that too! My husband still doesn't know to this day I did this... serves him right! Happy 50th Helen!

Thanks for taking a peek!

Finally found my MOJO!!!

It has been a couple of weeks since I have scrapped! Seems I was so busy in the garden and what not, I lost my mojo!
I did get a couple of layouts done this month... just because. They are not for any challenges or what not, they were 2 sketches I found from my friend Mia at SOS and just wanted to do them.

This layout was a fun one to do! My Mom use to sell "Fashion Frocks" when we were younger. (This is an oxymoron in itself, but that is another story!). These 2 dresses were ones she had, that my sister and I got. I love my necklace too! It was a big plastic heart that opened on the back, and inside was a little doll! How cute!!

This next one is of my dear Stuart as a little guy taking some of his first steps with his big brother George! Oh, what I would do to have them litle again!

Hope you enjoy! And have a great long weekend!

Happy Scrappin'

What is in a name...

Mia challenged us at Sisterhood of Scrap to do a layout about how we got our name! Thanks Mia... it was fun!

Mia's Challenge at SOS

This layout was made for Mia's challenge at Sisterhood of Scrap. She challenged us to use no patterned paper! What a challenge this was, but it wouked out well for this photo of my eldest, George, doing what he does best... biking!

Les Fleurs!

This layout was done for Cindy's NSD Challenge at SOS, and for this weeks sketch at Sketchy Thursday! Kind of wild, but fun to do!
