This Week I.............

Got very excited when I saw that they were selling Peonies in our local supermarket, I just LOVE them. I scooped them up straight away and put them on our hall table, they smell delicious and are so beautiful.

Managed to get some Scrapbooking done, yay!!! These are all super quick pages, Summer speed scrapping is what I like to call it.

At this point I have got to tell you how much I love Costco photo centre. I adore the fact that I can upload a photo, click on the 12 x 12 and go pick it up in an hour. I really like big photos but I do find them a little tricky to scrap. Sometimes I wonder if I can just slip them in as is but then I think I should at least try to make a bit of an effort.

I was very happy with how this one turned out, although it did not want to be photographed. I have got these adorable Winnie-the-Pooh stamps that have been etched from the original books. I mostly use them for cards but jump at the chance when I can use them on a layout. I do love Pooh.

I haven't quite finished this one but thought I would photograph it whilst I was doing the others. The spotty paper and the flower are Jillibean Soup, both of which were in the June kit. I think that the canvas flower is rather yummy and just goes perfectly with the Jenny Bowlin vintage button. Another super, simple, speedy page.

I have also been busy making little bits and bobs for the July kits. I can't wait to show the sneak peeks next week. Have a wonderful Thursday.


  1. I am ALL about simplfying my scrapping these days! :) Your layouts are fabulous! Just love the photo of your little cutie-patootie with the balloon!

  2. Oh TARA! Those are adorable pages, speedy or not, they are CUTE! Hope you are feeling well~

  3. Ahhhhh. Peonies. Wouldn't they look perfect in the garden of that house you posted a few months ago. Can't remember where it was - apart from England (of course) - but it had a fabulous conservatory but I seem to remember that it was too close to the road. Anyway... to cut a long story short.... I love them too... xxx

  4. BTW - found it on your 'Wish List Wednesday' back in February. Isn't funny how certain things just seem to 'burn' themselves into the brain.
