- suescraftstuff:- I try to put all sorts of things into order in a scrapbook. mainly family. I Started scrapbooking in 2009 and now am totally addicted. Just recently I started making a few cards, mainly for friends and family, I really enjoy doing this, but there is such a lot more to learn. currently I am learning to use promarkers, they're fantastic!!... I have a cricut cutting machine, but like to embellish with different mediums rather than just the cricut cutouts. I love lace and flowers, also distressing and embossing. This is just one of my many hobbies I've had over the years, a big part of it was woodcraft and painting.The woodcraft bit I got from my dad, him and my mum are my all time favourite people, my dad was so kind and clever, dad, I miss you, because of him I still dabble in the woodwork a bit too. But I am loving putting all my photo's into a scrapbook, and lately making cards, to keep and remember everone in a much more interesting way than a normal photo album .hopefully it will be passed on in later years.

From 1972-1981 we lived in this old mansion on the top of Warren Hill in Newmarket, Suffolk. It was the most amazing place, we had an enormous garden, an orangery, a squash court, old, but usable and what used to be a sauna. The house was divided into 9 flats/apartments, and was a great fun place to live. I was in my 20's and separated from my son's father, so we lived there alone, but never alone because of all the tenants, the were all about the same age as me, some USAF airmen stationed in Lakenheath and Milldenhall. I met my daughter's father there and when we had her we moved from that place to a small house in town, nothing like the old house, but I will always have such fond memories of it and the years my son was growing up there. we had a lot of fun in 'The Old House'. Warren Towers.
This LO was done of a winter photo taken in the back garden by the old christmas tree, the paper I used was Tim Holtz's idea-ology, I used Cosmic shimmer mist in 'Tropical lagoon' blue to stencil the snowflakes, and tattered angles glimmer mist in 'old lace' to colour the doily behine the photo. The flower I made myself by cutting 'ribbon' with Martha Stewart's deep edge punch flower vine, and scrunching it up and spraying with the cosmic shimmer.
