Water Fun

As the journalling says; we visited Crantock beach in Cornwall a few times as it has been one of Danny's family traditions since his mum was little and even before this when his grandparent's first visited Cornwall on their honeymoon. While we were here we tried Body Boarding and I'll be honest as much as I love swimming, I was terrified! I'm so scared of fish and also generally how overwhelming the sea was! But I trusted Danny and am quite proud of myself for just going for it. It really was so much fun catching a wave! 

The "Trust" and "Play" tags were so appropriate for this layout, I just had to use them. And I'm happy now with how the waves look; but it did take ages to get them to look right and to draw and cut them out! 

Beach BBQ

These photos are from our holiday down to Cornwall last Summer. We decided to have a wee beach BBQ of our own. It was nice to get some time on our own and the BBQ itself was tasty, so much so the seagulls made it clear they wanted some too! After we finished our BBQ we had fun jumping and sliding about in the huge sand hills...which was probably a bit silly but it was fun!

This layout was done as a wee momento of our holiday to Cornwall last Summer with Danny's family. The photo is of me, Danny and his little sisters; Hannah and Aimee. The holiday itself was somewhat stressful at times. I had a lot of things going on academically and this amongst other things tested us while down here. Although strained at times I'm glad I've seen another part of the country and got to visit Newquay as I'd always wanted to go there!

Here's is just a close up of the four of us. I also did some hidden journalling in the envelope.

Happy Birthday Sausage

Today is my lovely Danny's 23rd birthday so I got up early and set out the baking I hid and was busy making yesterday.Then got his presents ready for him getting up. I had so much fun making the little flags for his mars bar crispie cakes! I think he was quite surprised when he saw it all...I love giving presents so much! 

Here's the birthday boy...think I'll have to do a scrap page for this photo when I get a chance!

August Challenge

So here it is, my first ever go at entering a challenge.  Sarah's Cards Ltd chose their August challenge to be using five patterned papers. Most of the bits and pieces here are actually from their online store...I was so excited when I got my parcel of goodies a few days ago! Hope I did it right!

I chose to scrap this photo because it reminds me of one our best dates...I think it was later this evening that Danny said he wanted to marry me.

My 18th Birthday Book

I totally forgot about this! It's like over 4 years old and as the title says it's of my 18th Birthday!

This cake was literally the best cake I've EVER tasted! On my actual birthday I went for a family meal and was bought my first legal drink by my Daddy!

This was the night before me and my closest friends went down to Glasgow to see Jet at Carling Academy, it was one the best gigs I've been to. It was also on this trip that I got my first two tattoos.

We had lots of fun making cocktails and shots...which had some inventive names to say the least...

The next weekend was Jen's birthday so we had a joint party for both our birthdays.

I miss you

I found this photo of me and my Shenair (Gaelic name for Granda). I don't have many memories of him as he died in 1992; but I've always felt a closeness to him. I know I was very special to him and feel like he's always looked over me. The photo itself must have been taken in 1989 seeing as I'm so tiny!

Heritage Scrapping

This Layout is of my mam's immediate family; my Granny, Shenair (Gaelic name for Granda), uncle Callum and my mam. I think the photo was taken in the late 1950's. I really love this photo and how old fashioned it looks, it's so special for me to have a family photo like this.

Bye bye blogging virginity!

This is my first go at blogging, so it may take me a while to find my feet. I might be a little slow to begin with but I pinky promise to keep up to date with it and upload what I can. I'd love any feedback, tips and ideas for scrapping too, so don't be shy.

Here goes nothing I guess (wish me luck)...
