Holiday Crafting

Well I am blogging from Beadnell where I am resident in my parents caravan. I arrived on Friday morning and my lovely son Fraser and his lovely girlfriend Emma came along for the weekend.

We have been blessed with fantastic weather so far so have been sitting outside reading, having a bbq and lovely walks on the beach which if you read my blog will know is my favourite thing to do in the world

In between reading in the sun I managed my first layout today. I scraplifted it from one called The Big Day by the talented Rachael Elliot so I hope she doesnt mind

In 2008 Fraser was a patrol leader at the Scottish International Scout Jambourette held in Blair Atholl. As part of the hospitality for foreign Scouts we had to host one of them for a week after the camp. Fraser befriended Alex who was from Gibraltar and brought him back for the week. We took him to the caravan at Beadnell and on the way home Fraser wanted me to stop at the English/Scottish border so that him and Alex could get their picture taken. I used Echo Park Dots and Stripes papers and craft card which I got at a recent crop from the lovely Angela fromm Angel Crafts. Hopefully this will be the first of many layouts from my week long break


  1. Wow Suzy I love it! All the stitching is lush. Well done on scrapping while away. I look forward to seeing many many more ;)
