Wear It Pink Day

We are having a Wear It Pink Day at work today and all funds raised will be going to a Breast Cancer Charity

Everyone has to pay to wear something pink and some of us are baking to help raise funds

These are my very simple cupcakes which I made last night.  I added pink colouring to the actual cake mix and used lovely pink glimmery sprinkles on the top which I got from Asda.  The picture does not show off their sparkle very well. 

Hopefully we will manage to raise a few quid today.

New Home Card

This is just a simple card I made for a friend at work who is moving house on Friday this week.  I had a lovely sheet of 12 x 12 American crafts paper with the little houses on that I finally cut into!  This was layered up with some sparkly Petaloo Dazzler green glitter paper and some kraft brown card

60th Birthday Mini Book

At long last I have finished the mini book I was making for my friend at work's Dad's 60th Birthday. I found it difficult to do as I have never met him. I followed the brief I was given and she seemed pleased with it. I did forget to take a picture of it complete with the two book rings and some (manly) ribbon to finish it off.
Apologies for the layout of the post I am still struggling to get the hang of this whole blogging thing.
My latest Cleo Crafts kit arrived today and once I have finished stroking it I will use it to make something.

Two posts in one night!

Here is another very simple layout using the bazill card from the Cleo Crafts October kit - Flutter butter by Bo Bunny with mats from some of the plainer patterned paper. The flower was also made from scraps of this paper. The rick rack came with the kit and the striped ribbon came in a bunch also from Cleo Crafts.

Very simple but as I have 18 years of kids photos to catch up on the majority of the layouts will need to be quick and easy!


This is a layout I have done using the Bo Bunny flutter butter papers, a collection of blooms I had, some of my own and some from my last Cleo Crafts kit. The title is with American crafts felt thickers and it is finished off with a kraft journalling sprout

The layout is a bit tongue in cheek. The picture is of my daughter just before she was two on holiday in Menorca where she insisted on holding up the front of her dress in her teeth. My cousin now has a daughter aged five who will insist of going about with no pants and frequently will hold her dress up in a similar fashion!!!

Layout using October CLeo Crafts Kit

This is a layout of my son, Fraser who is now 18 which I have just done using the papers from the Cleo Crafts September kit - Bo Bonny Flutter Butter

He is an avid Scotland fan and has been so since he got his first Scotland strip aged around 18 months.

First 12 x 12 layout in a while

At long last my mojo seems to have returned and I have managed a 12 x 12 layout

I used the My Minds Eyre Pretty please papers from my September Cleo Crafts Kit

The picture is of my daughter - better late than never as she is 16 now!!! As you can guess I have a huge backlog as I only took up scrapping a few years ago. Sometimes I think I will never wade my way through them all.

Triangular Squash Book

I only just remembered that I hadn't posted the completed Triangular squash book from the UKS Summer mini book event which I made for my daughter, Fiona's 16th birthday last month

Completed Golden Wedding Flip book

At last I finally got the photos printed and the flip book finished for my Parents Golden Wedding

I will probably do a bigger album later but wanted them to have a pocket sized memento of the night they could take down to the caravan with them at Beadnell when they go this week to show their friends who were all there

Apologies for the quality of the photography
