10 Days Late

Tuesday 11th November
Where does the time go? I am sure that it was only a couple of days ago that I posted but Nooooooo it was ages. I love this time of year when the days are crisp and the leaves are such beautiful colours. We went walking locally on Sunday and I managed to snap some autumnal lovlies - yes I do mean David and Gracie. It is not often that I manage to get a photo of them together (David hates being photographed and hates being scrapped even more!) I love that when she walkes with her dad she often still holds his hand - the bond between them is incredable even though he is coming to terms with the rapid speed she is growing up at the moment much better than I am. Don't you just love Gracia's autumn walking outfit - denim shorts and red wellies!

I have been hording all the little scraps of paper from my Scrapagogo kits, because they are always so beautiful, and decided to put them to good use. I drew a 1 inch margin around a piece of white cs and then drew 4 rows of 2.5 inch squares and then used 32 different patterened paper triangles to fill the squares. I machine sewed these all down and used a Bazzill In Stitchz around the edge. I then found a fantastic quote about families being like a quilt stitched together and used my Dymo and some Core D'inations cardstock for the journaling!

I also made a lo using bits and pieces from loads of different Scrapagogo kits and am rather pleased with it, even if I do say so myself :) Don't you just love the face that David pulls when I ask him for a kiss. When he saw this lo he said "Stop scrapping me!" - Yeh like I going to even think about that - he he he he he.

Friday 21st November

This post has been languishing on Blogger waiting to be posted for the last 10 days and I completely forgot about it because when I originally tried to post it Blogger was playing silly beggers and would not let me post.

So now I can post my two los for Scrapagogo's November kit and ...................................

....................... some little peeks of what I have been working on for December!

Reasons to be cheerful:-

1. I absolutely love my new short haircut.
2. I am just about to watch 'The Holiday' as our girly night in film with Gracia - fabulous feelgood Christmassy film!
