A day's cropping

Had a lovely day yesterday at the crop in Uddingston.  I had missed the January one as I wasn't well and the December one was cancelled due to the heavy snow so it was fab to catch up with everyone.

Picked up Audrey and Sally so we got to have a good chat in the car on the way there and back.

We are all getting quite excited now about the retreat which Muriel and Mhairi (they organise the crop) are running at the beginning of March,  Its in Lower Largo in Fife and the Hotel looks lovely and overlooks the sea - bliss.  You know how much I love to be by the sea.

I only managed to do two layouts as I had one of those days where nothing came together and none of my photos seemed to match any of my papers.

It was my fault for not being as organised as usual and matching phiotos to papers in advance.  I also managed to leave my collection of sketches behind and that just made me realise how much I have come to rely on sketches for kick starting a layout.  I don't always follow the sketch but it does at least give a starting point

The first layout is of my cousins wee girl - Eve - doesn't she look cute and innocent - NOT.  Truth is she is a little devil - well a loveable devil really.

The second one is of my daughter Fion and her Grandpa.  We were down in Beadnell for Easter and I snapped them both sitting on this old bench following our customary walk on the beach.  Cannot believe that was almost five years ago.  Doesn't time fly!


  1. Two gorgeous LO's, they are both lovely :)

  2. Well for not having a sketch ... or photos that didn't match you papers, you didn't do, too badly, did you LOL. Oh these layouts are wonderful ... and yup, she does look a cutie :)
