- 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.

An old photograph found on the internet. My cousin found this picture purely by chance and amazingly it was a picture of My father and uncle outside a pub in London's East end. The picture was taken before one of their outings, as My Dad and Uncle (one either end of the picture holding their accordions) played the accordion they were always asked to go on the outings to provide the music. This was about 1950 we think and the pub was the Bancroft Arms. E.1.
The Tobacco tins were there because they smoked these brands and I always had a tin in the house with either nuts and bolts in/screws or drill bits! always reminds me of my Dad.
Ironically smoking didn't help both their healths, as they both passed away at a fairly young age by todays standards and I'm sure tobacco played a huge part in their demise.
Always in our thoughts Charlie and Teddy Weston.

Thought I'd try a few different ideas from my normal layouts, I acquired some clock parts and this set me thinking, so I added a few to my fav photo, cut out some pretty designs on the cricut, added a few embellishments from my stash, inked it up a bit added some lace and a little bling . I rather like it as a first, now I have to dig deeper into the realms of steampunk!!

My Wonderful little grand daughter Eloise. such a happy little girl.
I did this Layout in very muted pretty tones to attract the attention mainly to the photograph.
Paper is from the 'Booful' collection. Lettering done with the cricut and PC.
My trip to the Lake district 2012. It's such a beautiful place, no wonder William Wordsorth lived and wrote there. I wish we had more time to explore Grassmere, it was enchanting. The top picture is where Wordsworth is buried. there is a small chapel there and it has arches of flowers around the doorway. magic!
