About Me

My photo
Hi, Welcome to my Blog. I'm a lapsed crafter of late but still managing my diary Scrapbooking, plus cards as required. Previously I've also dabbled in ATCs, Tags, Altered Books, Art Journaling, Décopatch, Knitting, Crochet, and Embroidery amongst other things. I live in Surrey, UK with my husband and son. For exercise I usually play Badminton and go Ballroom and Latin Dancing, not really got back to the latter since the pandemic. I like walking which I couple with Geocaching and sometimes Bouncing on my Rebounder (mini trampoline). I am a Christian.

Happy Scrapper

Just finished scrapping my current set of prints to find I only had one side left in my current album of 60 layouts! I have since sorted out my new album, kindly given to me by a crafty friend, and ordered a further 113 prints which will take me from the end of September last year to earlier this month. So nearly up to date, but as life carries on so does the scrapping. A woman's work........and all that!

So here are my latest:-

Some more geocaching, with some caches hidden in unusual receptacles. There is a close-up of my new diecut which I used mirrored and added my wheatsheaf cut in purple as the lavender flower! Love it when a die can be used in different ways. Original photo here.

Then there is Cane Hill, an old abandoned Victorian Asylum, which was the start of the cult of Urban Exploring in the 90's. Although now most of the buildings have been demolished, except the chapel and water tower which hopefully will be incorporated in a new development but as it is on the green belt it has been dormant for decades now, pending planning agreements. Original photos here.

Lastly, some scouting and even more geocaching. Don't mention puzzle caches - not our favourite to work out but the walk was great and done directly from home to places we'd never explored before. Some original photos here.

Oh and the 50th birthday card I did for my friend, and the 16th for my son, well you have to include those don't you?

Lovely layouts, but I really like the cards! I have one very old geocache that I planted. I need to go refurbish it soon.
