The Tricky Art of the Family Self Portrait

Try as i might, i just couldnt get a decent family self portrait...
The base for the title is actually the packaging from the Pink Paislee Instaframes.
I used some alphas from October Afternoon's WitchHazel line to complement the Thickers.

it was (almost) like Lapland

A couple of weeks ago we went to a big garden centre called Millets Farm. In their Christmas barn they had lifesized stuffed reindeer; Ella was fascinated!
This is my first Lo with the main kit from crafty templates. Ive added a kittyrobot button.

what lies beneathe....

I just had to scrap this photo after hearing the news...
When we went to Cornwall, we had a cream tea at a place called Helford. 3 weeks later it was on the news. The biggest sea mine ever found had been discovered in the Helford river, right where we had been!!
Layout based on a sketch on the Elles Studio blog.

baking baking..

wow this week i've scrapped and i've baked! amazing!! These yummy cookies are peanut butter and choc chip. I was inspired to make these after reading this blog post by Leanne...and also by watching the latest series of The Great British Bake Off!! I didnt use as much peanut butter as Leanne; I only used half a jar of crunchy peanut butter, but they dont taste any the worse for it!!
