Catching up with friends

We spent a lovely evening out with friends while away. Here's the pics to prove it! Papers and embellishments also from the CM 'Cottage' pack.

Catching up with younger DS

Our second DS is still single, and we got to see him this trip as well. Since these photos were taken, he has had a haircut! Papers and embellishments are from the SM 'Cottage' pack. I have lots of journalling to catch up on.

One more of DS's wedding

These ladies were all bridesmaids, and the fellows were groomsmen (of course!)

DS's wedding

Here are some more pages of our son's wedding. The wedding was over a year ago and now they are expecting our first grandchild, I thought I had best get a move on with cropping their wedding photos! I still want to get some of their professional pictures done. These are my own snaps taken on the happy day. The papers are all from a CM wedding pack, and the accents of colour are also CM papers.

I used Pink Lemonade paper from CM and the Friendship micro punch, with silver and purple accents from a CM mat pack.

I'm baaaaack

I'm back home and have some posts to make of the cropped pages I did while I was away. Hope you like them :-)

Here are some pages of my niece's wedding, first:

I used the CM wedding pack for this - it just went so well with the church colours, and the mats from another CM pack were nearly the shade of the bridesmaid's dresses,

I may be without card making supplies, BUT

I did bring my scrap booking supplies. I didn't bring my photo sharing software or the lead to connect it with our friend's computer, or I could show you the pages I made yesterday. Oh well. It felt good to finally have some pages done for DS's wedding. I still want to get some of the professional photos printed so I can make some lovely pages with them, but I managed to get my happy snaps into album format :-)

Must make a list of items to bring when we go away next time. I forget several crucial items for scrap booking too. I guess it was a sign that I needed a bit of a break from all usual activities!

Today I am trying my hand at some feel-good cooking. I have a beautful smelling spice cake half done in the kitchen. I found the recipe on the Internet today. (How good is it to find recipes at the click of a mouse?? Just Google for what you want! I have never been steered wrong!) It's a boiled spice cake - that's why the house smells so good. I'm waiting for the boiled bit to cool down enough so I can add the last few ingredients, then I'll pop the whole thing in the oven. I had to alter the recipe somewhat as I didn't quite have all the ingredients on hand that the recipe called for, so it's an experiment in more ways than one. A new recipe AND I altered it already!! Ah well - live dangerously when you can. Lol!

I'm away from home without my card making gear!

I'm visiting family and friends for a couple of weeks so won't be adding any cards for awhile. Be back at the end of October when I will look forward to seeing some other people's creations!
