About Me

My photo
Alicante, Spain
Hi. I live in Spain with my partner. I am retired and LOVE it. I love life here but I do miss my family back in the UK, two sons and three sisters and my Mum. Crafting is my life, I do something every single day. In the past it has helped me get through some bad times in my life. One such bad time was when my first grandson died aged just 14 months. He had been born 8 weeks prem but was very healthy and was growing into a beautiful, bonny boy. It was such a shock when the call came. A day never passes when I dont think of him. I am now Nanna again to grand daughter, Hollie, born July 2012, and Tess born March 2016. This is my younger son and his partner. I now have another Grandson, Noah, born Nov 2013 to my elder Son and they have a daughter, Aurora, born March 2015. Thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoy my makes. Please leave a comment so that I know you have visited me. xxxx

Scrapbook Page

Hi all

I have been wanting to get into scrapbooking for a long time but never seemed to get the inspiration, but now that my younger son is expecting ( well, not literally, it,s his partner) LOL, I thought this might get me going.  So I thought I would follow her pregnancy with the scrapbook first few pages and here is the first one.  It shows the first scan they had and as they dont know yet if it,s a boy or girl, I copied it twice and matted it onto blue card and pink card.
The 12 x 12 paper is from a pad I bought years ago in USA and its blue and pink spots.  Gold shiny paper on two corners with afew foam hearts and Baby ********* on the top corner and on the bottom corner " You will be loved" written by hand.  It is not upto many peoples standards but I hope to get better as time goes by.  The next page will be her 20 week scan and we will know what the gender will be too.  I would be glad of any comments, good or bad, please let me know what I could do better.
Thanks for looking.
