The Scrappy Tree

Hi! Happy Friday! Or should I say good morning Saturday to the late nighters in the UK :) I've had my hands full this week with a virtual vacation with my scrapping buddies! I can't tell you how lucky I am to be invited to such an event; it's not over yet, but I've enjoyed every second so far, even though I have scrapped more this week than in the past months(!) it's been so worth it :) once we get back from 'vacation' I'm sure I'll have some things to share.

For now? I'd love for you to check out The Scrappy Tree! After a little break, The Scrappy Tree is back on track this month, and today I posted my regular end-of-the-month slot, Art Journal Friday. For those who haven't played before, it's a chance to mess about with your craft supplies over the weekend, and get a little love in return :) if you think you might have time to play this weekend, call in at The Scrappy Tree for more details.

Have a great weekend :) thanks for stopping by ;)

Happy Birthday lovely friend :)

Today I wanted to share a little mini-album I made for my bestie's 30th birthday a few weeks ago. We both turned 30 within about 6 weeks of each other, and have known each other since school, so I wanted to make her something to keep...

There are a few photos of us floating about from over the years... I collected up a few photos, my Dymo and got to sticking things down!

For all the memories that we have photos of...

...there's plenty more for which there exists no photographic evidence! It's all up here :)

Happy Birthday my dearest friend! Here's to another decade of fun and frolicks!!

An ENORMOUS (and belated!) thank you

I have to apologise profusely and extend much gratitude to Jennifer at Blueskysunburn Creations for this fantastic book which I won in her blog giveaway earlier this year. Jennifer, so grateful for your very generous prize! My break from my blog has made this thank you extremely tardy!!

Jennifer produces some beautiful artwork which you can check out on her blog; love her chatty blogging style and the pics she posts about what she's been up to! Lovely :) thanks again Jennifer!

SO happy Friday!

Hey!! Two blog posts in less than a week! Feel like I'm spoiling myself ;)
This was my first week back at work after the holiday - needless to say, it was a BUSY week! and I didn't get everything done that I wanted to. But there were two very important things that needed to be completed this week, firstly a BIG happy birthday to my wonderful stepdad Mark for the 16th Oct!

And I've been putting the final touches to a mini-album for my bestest mate's 30th birthday; can't reveal all yet as I won't be giving this to her until tomorrow, but here's the front cover for now...
I also owe a massive and very much belated thank you to a fellow blogger - when I find the pic I need I will post here and signpost accordingly :)
Wishing you a wonderful weekend for now! Gayle xx

Happy Sunday!!

Happy Sunday bloggers! Been AWOL for some time now what with one thing and another; all will become clear in the next few months when I can share with you what's been going on round here :D In the meantime, we just got back from an awesome ten days in Florida; as you can see they have already decorated for Halloween!

We've been busy checking things out and trying to make some plans for our wedding in Florida next year, so watch this space for more info as it comes :)
I also want to direct you over to The Scrappy Tree; Kristin, Julie and I are hoping to start sharing some of our projects again very soon, kicking off for Halloween! Please drop by and say hi; any suggestions welcome! Good to be back :)
