Busy, Busy, Busy

It's that time of year again, when those of you who are PTA's up and down the country will know what I mean by busy! Although I was going to step down from our committee this year, I ended up being chair person or we wouldn't have any continuity. Thankfully, the rest of the new committee are all lovely and enthusiastic so I'm hoping that things go well despite me being in charge.

So I'm sharing a couple of projects from the past couple of weeks in no particular order. The first is from a trip we made to a local National Trust property. One of those rare occasions when my two little monsters posed for the camera. They posed beautifully one minute, then acted up the next. Very typical behaviour.

It did give me chance to dust off a Buzz and Bloom spinner I had been hoarding. Do you know those things that are just too precious to use? This is one of them. I've covered mine in paper (all My Mind's Eye). The journalling is Naughty, Nice, Nicer.

I have gone a little mad over masking recently, so I've masked circles and stuff onto my background - I just love this technique.

Did I mention that the papers are the lovely Stomp! collection from My Mind's Eye? I just love getting boys stuff in my stash - there just isn't enough of it out there.
Speaking of boys stuff, I'll share a layout I did for the AllyScraps blog last week.

I love the cool graphic images of the Oh Boy! collection from Fancy Pants. I wish I could doodle in the same way. The really cool thing about this paper is that all the hard work is done for you. All that is left to do is to add your photos and some fancy bits (if you really need to).

I added my favourite bit of magic mesh and added rub-ons here and there.

Before I go, AllyScraps are participating in the Adornit Blog Hop this Friday. As I'm guesting on the blog, I get to play along too! Yippeee!

As the theme is Christmas, I'll leave you with a sneak peak of my contribution. Be sure to pop over to AllyScraps blog this Friday to find out what we've been up to.
Thanks for stopping by.

  1. Stunning Layouts Morag. I love your spinner, what a great idea. The colours are all gorgeous too. I don't have any boys to use such fun paper, maybe will have to think out of the box and use it anyway!!
    Have a great weekend.
