Frosted Designs Tuesday Sketch

Well, I finally get to post a LO. I have withdrawal symptoms. I packed up a lot of my stash to bring with me on my holiday. I have the most beautiful spot that I sit and scrap at when we are in PE for our holidays. I look out of the glass door and see the small mountain behind our house. It is amazing. Anyway that is off the track of what I wanted to say. When we arrived and unpacked ~ DH had forgotten my one bag (the one with all my paper in) at home.
I must admit I did sulk for a while, but today I went into town and bought a whole lot of new paper. So I have spent the whole afternoon scrapping ~ and smiling again......LOL.
I loved the Tuesday Sketch at Frosted Designs last week.

My daughter, Kerry and her friend Sam have been down here on holiday since 10th December and so they have plenty of holiday photos already. The Friday Challenge at Frosted Designs was to use the word "family" or base your LO on family. I decided to combine the two challenges.

These two have been friends since second grade ~ they still giggle and screech like they used to all those years ago!!!!

I am finished scrapping for the day. Going to sit outside and enjoy a glass of wine with my Husband. Thanks for looking. Hope all the Christmas preparation is going fine. To those who are experiencing bad weather ~ be safe!!!



  1. Bev this is GORGEOUS.....Thanks for playing with us at Frosted Designs.

  2. Your layout is gorgeous Bev. Glad you were able to find a store with scrapbooking supplies so you didn't have to go through total withdrawal.
