I'm back and celebrating 10 years!

Hi there everyone. I would say sorry for being gone so long but I hate doing that lol.  So I'm just going to start posting and pretend the last year of not didn't happen!

To start off 'celebrating 10 years' no that's not of blogging that's not even of scrapping, it's actually 10 years since the Marsh family moved into their current address and I'm happy to say we still love our little house just as much as we did on the 4th July 2003 :)

To celebrate I've done a little craft project which I will share in a minute but first I need to mention that I 'stole' the idea from a wonderful website that you may want to take a look at ( ) which is a lovely lady called Marie who has made me some wonderful items.  However for this project I just so wanted to make it myself even if it doesn't look as professional lol I love it!

That's all for now everyone but my promise is that I am going to try really hard to blog more now my life seems a little more organised xxx

Happy New Year to everyone but most especially to my lovely bloggy friends. I'm sorry for my long absences in the last few months and my one resolution for this year is to blog more! I will return in the next couple of days to share with you lots of JYC pages, some more document 2011 and my plans for document 2012 :) For now 'keep calm and scrap often' Love & bloggy happiness Vicki-Jane - Posted using BlogPress from my iPhone!

Go Go To You

I had a wonderful time today at a scrapagogo crop in Surrey with the lovely Rachel.

This is my favourite layout started during this mornings class by the lovely Rebekah Montague, I have finally finished it tonight after a battle of me versus the paper flowers shown below! Don't they look amazing though?

The picture below shows my journalling with the class heading 'Life Lessons Learnt'

The other layout I have completed today was much quicker and was made during my last class today by the lovely Kirsty Smith very aptly titled 'Rumples and Ribbons'. This class was very strange for me because it involved lots of random sized pieces of paper and screwing up paper which is something I would never do but thoroughly enjoyed!

I'm going to leave blog world now for the night after an exhausting but brilliant day. Hopefully now I'm back in the swing of things with my scrapping I will find some time for more regular blogging (no promises though!)

See you soon lovely blight people.

Photo of the week :-)

I have decided to follow the example of a couple of my blogging friends and do a photo of the week post! My day for doing this is going to be a Monday as that is the day I seem to get the most time to do my scrapping/blogging :-)

This weeks piccie was taken at the christening of my cousins two gorgeous bubbas - it is not of the babies but of my two favourite ladies who are wonderful ladies/mums/aunts/sisters and it's lovely to see them together :-)

Just a quick post tonight to introduce this new item on my blog! Hopefully back soon to catch up with some of my BFS prompts and the new class which started today 'beyond' BFS :-)

My favourite things - Prompt 3

Just a quick list and a short ecplanation for this one I think!

My favourite things at the moment are:

  • The colour Blue - In clothes, on walls, on my nails.  I especially like it mixed with brown in all these things as well and can't wait to decorate my bedroom these colours.

  • Shoes - Especially wedges.  Wedge boots for the winter and wedge sandals for the summer!  Or the must have ballet slipper style shoe of which I have a multitude of colours :)

  • Amarige - This is the perfume I have used for years and yet still love.  DH always buys me some and makes sure I never run out!  I have tried other scents and yet always seem to return to this one.

  • The Rain - I only like the rain when I have nowhere urgent to be!  I love the sound of a proper down pour, I love the smell of a fresh rain in the spring and I love running about in the rain when it doesnt matter what I look like!

  • Books - All kinds of books, I will read most things but I always have a book on the go!  I am loving the kindle app on my phone but I still love the feel of a book and turning the pages.  I read romances, fantasy, true stories, thrillers, erotic fiction, crime and will try most other genres if recommended.  My DH and eldest DD are the same but my younger DD has yet to find a love of books but hopefully that will came one day (fingers crossed). I am currently reading a book by JD Robb.

I think I'll leave my list there but hopefully I will revisit it another day.
