won’t want to go back to work … would rather stay home and scrap !!!

I’ve done a bit of scrapbooking since I’ve been home

Partly because of the ‘new’ old stuff given to me by my good friends Anne  and Beth while I was in the US – I didn’t buy too much while over there – just a few bits and pieces in Walmart – but Anne gave me a heap of Club Scrap papers and about a million embellishments !!!

These done before I went away

Heritage Layouts

I had the urge to dig out some of the old heritage photos that I have – I pulled out my stuff and off I went. When it comes to heritage – I’m pretty ‘traditional’ when it comes to heritage photos – I love the colours, and I love lots and lots of matts – this goes back to my days at Scrapbook Cottage with Anna who used to create the most awesome heritage pages.

I just love working with the old pics too
