What a scrapper

Today we finally got broadband via slingshot....what a difference. I never thought in terms of this blog, but uploading it took about two minutes as oppossed to 20 minutes. perhaps Ill blog more!!!!
So Ive been scrapping and reading. I read two moons and despite the fact i am not a teenager I am going to read reaking Dawn next. I looked up the Hastings library catalogue and all the copies were out....the only one available was a large print!!!!! Either no teenager wants to be seen with this version or they havent pegged on to this edition. Im going tomorrow and hopefully it will still be there for me..Uh oh more late nights!!! Actually in the library the twilight books are filed under teenage fiction but in book stores they are in the adult fiction...himmm. Doesnt make me feel so bad now. They are beautifully written and just the nost romantic thing yo could lay your hands on. Well i think so anyway!So onto the scrapping.... This layout was from a previous layout I did when i first started. it was horrible!!!! Unfortunately I had cut out all the figures  and so i had to come up with a whimsical theme. After much in car waiting for the kids sketching on my chequebook I came up with this concept. Its not great but a WORld away from the original.

Then there is this. Ive finally done these pages using the Suar Sugar range from Kaiser.  Ive had them since last year just for this purpose but was stumped as to how to scrap. This top sketch came from a sketch site and Im going toenter it in their competition just becasue.. 
Another wedding layout. So glad to be getting these done. its only elevan years ago.... I borrows an idea from the scrapping class i went to last week. So that made it worth the money.

The kaiser range again...I made a hidden journalling spot...not that its private or anything but I love the idea and I always think my handwriting looks so unproffessional, even when I try to slop it up a bit . The experts look so good somehow at this..I wonder how they do it???   I bought a new printer on I will be going back to journalling with the fancy fonts from the computer.

Thats all for now. Its still so muggy here even though it has been raining. The girls are always covered in mossie bites and I bought some special itching cream to solve their woes which took exactly twelve hours to dissappear into the chasms of the we are back to savlon cream and Dads eczema cream. One day im going to find a big hole where all the special creams and poyions and extras i buy have fallen into hours after they have entered the house.

Have a good night
Im loving broadand
Love Cherry
