Summery layout – it’s snowy outside!

Hi all

Time for a quick update… I’ve hardly managed any craftyness this week (except for lots more knitting but thats another story…) Looking forwad to getting in the crafty den this weekend.
Before I do, just time to share a quick LO that I rustled up. Having been doing a bit of scrapping last weekend, and the one before, (will share all that soon hopefully when I’ve finished the whole mini book!) anyway I was in scrappy mood and this bit of bright summery inspiration was fun. Quite a contrast to the other snowy pics I’ve been scrapping from our Norway trip a year or so ago….! Those are the ones I’ll be sharing soon asap ;)

And photographing this was nice and easy, after all the snow we had yesterday – everywhere is much brighter and lighter!

Here’s my layout then to enter into a couple of challenges:

scrapbook layout Tyntesfield Abbey October Afternoonscrapbook layout Tyntesfield Abbey October AfternoonLove the fabulous October Afternoon papers ;)
And that safety pin is so cute (I think it fixed a tag to some clothing item I bought yonks ago and have been hoarding in the crafty stash ever since?!)
Anyway – I love these pics of one of our outings to Tyntesfield (a local National Trust property). Great to have them scrapped!

To enter into these challenges:

Annabelle stamps challenge – Colour challenge AC154:

..and… Crafty Catz – Anything but a card #166.

Meanwhile, I mentioned all the snow we’ve had – our first of the winter (probably not the last!!!)
This was the view we woke to yesterday, from our spare room over our little garden. Usually you can see right across to the city, but not with all the blizzard in the air, haha!

Stay cosy crafty pals, Rx
