Carcassonne


Picture of the cafe bars inside the City

Holiday to France August 2009


This is the beautiful city of Carcassonne, after a 6 hour drive in a 42 degree heat we finally made it, the hotel was something to be desired but in all honesty I think it was purely due to the extreme heat phew!! It was bloomin hot!!!

London 2006



A Tour of London
April 2006


This was our second trip to london and we managed to fit in quite alot of sightseening on our two day visit, the weather was beautiful, food excellant and just a general buzz of excitement that you get with all the hustle and bustle we love it.........

Again I have used pieces of cosmic cricket papers I had left over from the cube. The mini book was bought in a local craft shop and ribbons again are available from poppicrafts.

Kieran all yours!!

Born 21st July 1998

This is my wonderful son again, to which you will see him appear in alot of my scrapbook pages I have so many photos of him that are still in boxes so I decided to have ago at doing a photo cube available from crafts u love. For my first attempt I don't think it has turned out to bad!! I have used the cosmic cricket range of papers to create this cube which I already had in my stash of papers I think they work great for getting the distressed look on your projects. I also used 15mm grosgrain ribbon to which I purchased from poppicrafts. Hope you Like.......

Kieran Oh So Cute!!


This a picture of my darling son aged 18 months. For this Layout I used Anna Griffin Papers.

Come on Mummy


Another scrapbook page created by using the "Far East Collection" from Die Cuts with a View.
I simply printed the journalling onto vellum and attached it to the layout . I haven't used many embellishments in this layout as I wanted to keep it simple.

Bombs Away!!!


This Scrapbook page was created by using Die Cuts with a View "Far East Collection"
I created the Bombs Away title by using glossy accents and then dotted them all over the page to give the illusion of water splashes.. The photo does not show this clearly enough unfortunately.

Alnwick Castle Gardens







This Water feature set in the Grounds is stunning unfortunatley you can't capture its full glory, tried to take several photos to give people an idea.



Alnwick Castle


This is Alnwick Castle in Northumberland. It is breathtaking, the weather was beautiful and the scenery stunning, this is where Harry Potters first two films were located for hogwarts!!! I highly recommend a visit to this castle and the surrounding water gardens its a full day out and worth every penny.

Our Trip to Northumberland



We had A weekend away to hexham, this is a picture of the Angel of the North taken by my 10 year old son whilst hanging out the car window as we passed it on the A1 motorway before arriving at our bed and breakfast we stopped at the metro centre for a bit of shopping.

Beautiful Gite in France





















This is my parents Gite in rural france, it is surrounded with lovely landscapes and the chateaux in Boussac is beautiful St Pierre La Bost is a lovely base for travelling around france and is within a 2-3 hour drive from Carcusson if any one has read the Da Vinci Code this is the place that was mentioned in the book. St Pierre La Bost is approx 1hr 30mins drive from Limoge Airport so transport is an amust if you want to take in the beauty of France. My parents moved to france about 3 years ago and have beautifully refurbished this house and updated the Gite to accomodate a disabled person
