A Busy Scrapping Sunday!

Here's my take. You can find the challenge here
I love the water even if there's only enough time to hop in, swim a bit and hop out!!
The Challenge - Do you have a family meal, or gathering that inspires you?
Weeell, Easter Breakfast is always memorable! The night before, when everyone has gone to bed...I decorate the dining table with Easter delights, Easter crockery and a centrepiece- different every year and a surprise in the morning!! Its where the kids are greeted with their easter eggs, a hot cooked breakfast is served (usually scrambled eggs!)
Easter tradition is centred around our dining table. I love this family time!!
I loved this jack by Beth Perry!!! You can find it here
It just oozed vintage and old world - history book even. This is a pic of my great grandmother in mourning after the death of my great grandfather in Flanders in World War One 1914. He was only 24 yrs old. His only daughter (my grandmother) was only 10 months old.
26th JUNE PHOTO Ooooh how lucky was being featured in ScrapScene!! What a buzz!!! 27th JUNE PHOTO Beginners Class this morning.......running on demi-pointe with scarves
Cosmo felt he wanted as much if not more attention as Paige was giving her homework! He just plopped himself down on it waiting for a pat!!
Dont forget to hop on over to 'LET'S GET SHABBY' for Challenge One!

Hi Mandy, I found you through ScrapScene of course, I was/am sitting up in the wee smalls reading through your blog and following links and having a lovely time. Your work is spectacular. Just beautiful and I wanted to let you know that you have inspired me. I unfortunately have cancer and it is terminal so making albums of and for my boys is important to me but I have been blocked for an age. Blocked until I found your blog that is! Now I am inspired, I have some new techniques I want to try and I haven't ever scrapped 'shabby chic' style but just love the look of it so I am going to give it a go. I just wanted to let you know that you have made a difference and to thank you. Isn't it amazing being able to reach into peoples lives and touch them through blogging? Just wonderful. Okay this has been a very long comment so I better finish now, take care and thanks again, I look forward to following your blog.
