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.

Vintage birthday card

This paper is die cuts with a view, 'Once upon a time' it just makes you want to do something vintage, I used a cut out for the cameo and a beautiful frame from Penny Duncan's files.

This link will take you to a site which is now the home of my brother's life size replica of a WWII Spitfire which he hand built himself over a span of 7-8 years.  I am so proud of him for this amazing achievement as I am of the Spitfire itself.   am putting together a double page LO of this very thing and hope to put it on my blog soon.
