A scrapping frenzy!

Well nor exactly a frenzy but certainly my fingers have been itching to do some pages. Now i have cleared away the hobby room,craft area,  tiny corner of the lunge of detritis to do with sewing, quilting,stuffing, wadding, scraps and magazines, I have lots some room to produce some layouts, or as I just discovered the shorthand for- los- I really want to empty a thick old falling apart album with about a couple of hundred of mostly georgias first and second year photos and I got rid of three of them last night! The first I made all pink and actually used some older embellishments that have been gathering dust down the bottom of my scrapbooking drawers plastic ripped box that holds my supplies. And the paper which was a mark down YEARs ago at hasRubs store. I then made a flower and stamped the leaves that i am ridiculously pleased with....

See here..its all in the details. I often wonder if in years to come if all these trendy and much loved at the moment embellishments will be laughed at like old fashion? but for now..i love it..

Then while putting the page away i discovered this page that I recently redid of Alexs first day at twyford. The first lo was horrid and I had cut out the figures so was limited in my new lo, but i love these whimsical pages that other people do and copied bits and pieces for this. Ive still got another (inside the classroom) to do. Same thing thought Id be artsy at the time cut out the figures and now have to come up with an inside environment..brain is always ticking overtime on that one.. (any ideas appreciated). Anyway loved the details on this one. Stunned myself that it actually came out ok!!!!!

See what i mean...madly bowled over by whimsical stuff like this!

And then my last lo. This was free pages that came with a scrapbook magazine and I cropped and I used my loved white pen, and some chipbord from Christmas that says peace..because i didnt have enough letters to go with "Sleep' or ":Dream"!!! Im kinda happy with this one, didnt really go the way i had planned thanks to some over zealous paper cutting earlier on in the journey and in mod podging (I LOVE Mod Podge) the back and the front of the chipboard the H got a bit grubby errrrrrrr. But its in, its finished.Next!!
I went to my favourite scrapping store today and bought up 50.00 worth of stuff (i had that much of my Chrissie pressent voucher left). I now have some lovvely paper and blank chipboard letters, stickers and pens. I CANT WAIT!
I have to go now. my chooks are out in the tomato garden and id like to think they are only eating the bugs and not the radich, carrots, silverbeet babies hiding under the tom plants. Speaking of toms we have a bumper season. Heaps of Romas drying in the oven for sundried toms in oil, and tons of heritage and cherries and these i will be making relish with. probably when both my babies go to camp next week.
Happy scrapping and tomoato picking
Love Cherryxx
