It's all about favourite vacations over at
One of our favourite times for us three girls is riding along the beach when on holidays.
Its just great to get some 'us' time together in our very busy life.
Its a favourite time.
I'd love you to join me because this is about my favourite book childhood book 'The Secret Garden' I'd just LOVE to see what you can do with this challenge!!! Let me see your names turn up!! LOL (no pressure!!!) hee hee!! You can find the challenge criteria here (big smile) . . . RUBY STREET A little bit of Halloween at Ruby Street!! I had such a privilege to work with one of the 'Those Doris Days' lovelies! And a little birdy tells me that there's some updating going on this weekend!! Blacky served as a wonderful subject for this little booklet FULL of perfect go-togethers!!
'I see a bird'!! LOL - that's as far as the drama goes for our 17yr old!
Then he'll sit back down! It's written all over his face 'nah, cant be bothered'
He's gone really really deaf lately. .
Paige highlighting her times for when she has to be at 'Oliver' rehearsals.

Peggy said...

Congratulations on being a grinner Mandy! Your LO was lovely.
And again you're showing us all such lovely creations Mandy! The feel to that first one, ah ... so pretty! I remember that time I went riding along the beach, such a sense of pure contentment, just being happy to be alive ... those were the days... And that paper placement adds so much texture, you should add pics of your LO's taken from a different angle, so that we can see the wonderful texture you create!
The Kiddie Lit LO, what can I say, another wowzer!
And I so love the mini-album about Blackie, it's just perfect! I love how you added diamonds on his head on one page LOL.

Just so beautiful - and amazing - I just sit and analyze how you created the LOs and book, which is just brilliant! Love the kiddielit layout with all the leaves etc, but of course, your Ocean ride layout is dear to my heart, loving the ocean as I do. Love the effect of all the ribbons and papers across the page. thanks so much for playing along with us at TAAFOMFT.
