I really can't believe just how long it is since I updated this poor neglected blog. Such a lot has happened since July. Mainly that my poor old laptop has given up the ghost and I have been without internet access at home for ages. While I save up (slowly) for a new one by fab BIL has put helped me sort out an old desktop computer and so for now I am up and running - albeit with a computer which looks as if Noah might have had it in the ark!!!!
I have finally begun to scrap a bit more frequently firstly due to continuing to attend the lovely crop near home at Uddingston and also thanks to finding a lovely new crop which is fairly near to my parents caravan in Beadnell. I had been chatting online at UKS to Heather who organises the crop at Holystone and in the summer she asked when I was coming to join them wilst I was at the caravan. The first month I thought she was just being polite and didnt take her up on the offer but when she asked me again in August I decided to take the plunge and join them. I have attended a few crops down there since then and am just back from a lovely weekend at a Farmhouse near Moffat where we had an excellent DIY retreat.
I have also joined the Rik Rak Ravers team on UKS as quite a few of them go to the crop at Holystone and am enjoying taking part in the weekly challenges set on UKS.
I have also at last cleared out my craft room so that I will have the space to scrap at home, all of which means I have at long last managed to fill up my first album.
I will leave you for now with a few of the layouts I did at the scrapping weekend and I promise to try and update on a more regular basis.
