Project Life layout...

Mary, my 14yo, took to making a scrapbook layout using the Project Life core kits, like a duck takes to water. She chose cards from the core kits Honey, Kraft and Midnight editions and combined them into what I think is a fab design. The photos she used are from 2006 taken in London with her travelling Beanie Kid, Fairy Floss. What do you think?

Stitching on the beach...

Beach stitching has been plentiful during this holiday! The sun has been shining this Spring so between sandcastle building and board games, stitching has been had.

Here is the progress on the Shepherds Bush Christmas stocking. It is stitched on 18 ct natural linen with DMC Pearl Cotton no 5.

New Use for Washi Tape...

This pale-pink cursive writing washi tape came with my September Studio Calico main kit. I fell totally in love with it!

Who would have thought that the first time it was used would be to hold fishing line in place? There was no sticky tape at the beach house so luckily I had bought some scrapping gear with me on our holiday and we could use the washi instead!
