Saved! So Thank You

I'm sure we've all been frustrated one way or another today with blogger. Yesterday my whole blog disappeared see here and when it came back on today two of my posts had disappeared- I thought i could cobble something together and rewrite them but then someone came to my rescue! Julie-Ann Shahin found my posts in Goolge reader and offered to send them to me! How kind was that! I'm so greatful

For Shimelle's latest sketch- I used some bit from a digital Echo Park For the Record kit, some washi tape and a few little embellishments- the title is Happiness is where you find it

the sketch

scrapbooking sketch and page ideas

For Scrap the Girls

The challenge this week at Scrap the Girls was to scrap a female that was important to you _ I was planning on doing one about my MUm or my Nan but as I started layering up the bits on this LO I realised that this picture of my Great Grandmother was the perfect fit- maybe it doesn't count for the challenge anymore but I still love what I've created. She looks great in this photo really glammed up for the portrait I think!
I think I shall use this one for Shimelle's NSD challenge - to use patterned paper as a background
