The favourite thing I have scrapped about is my daughter's favourite present from last year. She loves her roller skates, she wears them round the house on our wooden floors and loves to pull back the rugs and skate across the floors. She has even been seen watching TV standing on them ( the photo you can see in the picture)
Some of us are offering a little prize on the blog hop. Leave a comment here and I will send one person a selection of Project Life cards. I will pick a winner at the end of the month.
So now you need to go back to the beginning and let us know you've visited all the stops. use our ideas as inspiration and you could be winning a prize form Child's Play. Get back the the beginning here.

This LO is about the view from the gala dinner we went to in New York. It was held on the 40th floor of World Trade building seven in the New York Academy of Science. We arrived before sunset so we had great views of New York by day and night. The pictures showthe Wollworth Building, the Brooklyn Bridge and Trinity Church.

This LO only has one Project Life card on it tucked behind the paper and photos.
The photo is from Twycross Zoo toilets. Yes the toilets. They have a mirror in front of the sinks as usual but the mirror is behind a leaf cutter ant house. So when you look in the mirror the ants are in front of you. I could not resist a photo.

Last time we went we went up the Empire State Building at night and the World Trade Centre tower. this time we decided to go up to the top pf the Rockefeller Plaza which has the added benefit of a good view of the Empire State building.
I used bakers twine and some punched out leftover dots to mark out and label the key sights on the photo, including Times Square, the new World Trade Centre tower and the Statue of Liberty.

I used the big swirl on the poster and the colours to make a LO about my two sons and their friend doing science experiment at the Science Museum Nemo in Amsterdam.

i took the idea of the maps and stamped a map onto four squares of different paper which I layered up onto a map paper with planes. this was perfect for the photo I took on the plane on the way to New York. We were flying business class because it was a special award trip and I had four windows all to myself. Four. Although you can only see three in the photo!

I have had a little bit of a scrappy blogging nightmare over recent days. OUr main PC died on me, just shut itself down and refused to start up again. I had internet access on my Ipad, and I had my laptop from work, i had a working camera as well but without the PC i had no way of getting my pictures off the SD card and into blogger. My lap top doesn't have an SD card slot, so I have been unable to continue with my planned schedule of non scrappy supplies.
while we were in New York we visited the branch of the Magnolia Bakery that is in Bloomingdales. I initially thought about scrapping with the bag ( below) but it was just wrong, to thick, too big or too small depending on how i thought about using it. so instead on this LO I used one of the business cards I picked up in the shop.
the LO is about my choice of cup cake- peanut butter and jelly.

this LO is for the sketch challenge at Sarah's cards.
we have recently got back from a trip to New York and on two days we were able to have buffet breakfast in the hotel organised by the company ( we were there because my husband had won an award)
these were my two favourite bits of the breakfast and of course I had both- on both days.
there was a bagel bar so I had to have bagels with cream cheese, salmon, onion and capers.
I also loved the french toast with vanilla bean sauce and fresh fruit. YUM.

for any of you that know about baseball we were there on "bobblehead night" when the free bobblehaeds of Mariano Rivera were due to be given out on the gate and they didn't turn up. when we left the queue to pick them up contained thousands of people and snaked half way round the stadium and all the way from the top level down to the bottom.

there is no problem with taking pictures in the gallery so this is one of my husband walking on one of the pieces of art. He gets really annoyed about art like this, paving slabs on the gallery floor. so when he saw the sign "please feel free to walk on the art work" he was only to happy to oblige

I made these two LOS for the DT at Scrap it With a Song. The inspiration is from a song that I love but is quite trivky to scrap. its by the Cure and its called Lullaby.
I chose the line candy stripe legs as my inspiration- the song has lots about the spiderman so on the first i made a web out of bakers twine. Nancy in the ppicture has stripy legs for her halloween costume.
this second is also inspired by the candystripe legs. this time i used a picture of an actual spider. i took the photo through our window as this spider was spinning its web across the pane of glass.
the title is candy srtipe leg8. i had run out of s on my stickers so i substituted an 8. normally i would have colured it in a little bit so it looked like a s but with it being a spider, with eight legs, i decided to leave the title as it was.

When we visited Alnwick Garden in the summer we were given these beautiful maps of the garden, drawn and on thick matt paper, not thin shiny stuff like you often get at an attraction. This had to he incorporated into a LO.
The photo is from the walled, ornamental garden that you can see at the top of the map.

I thought the shades of green went well with the mint choc chip ice cream ( as did the cheaper than therapy paper). We visit Northumberland for our holidays and there is a great ice cream parlour there called Morwick, it's based on their farm and you can see the cows that produce the milk for the ice cream. Yum.

The photos are of the children's school in Hilversum. I took some pictures at they end of our stay to remind them of where they went to school. These pictures show the school building itself and the bike park with the hundreds of students bikes.
I also used some stickers that came from the Dutch supermarket. They often had freebies and these stickers came with the football stickers that you collect in an album.

Music paper is always a good background paper and I love epwhen there are loads of options around to buy.
Stanley is a big cricket fan so he was super thrilled to go on a tour of the home of cricket, Lords, in London. This is him with the pavillion and Long Room in the background
