Scrapbook Tuesday - T stands for Together....

Hello There

Gosh it doesn't seem a week since last Tuesday!  I am pretty sure I have not been round all my visitors from last Tuesday's post yet as this last week just flew by so fast!  Hubby and I had some time out together and so I didn't venture near the puter very much!  I apologise now if I haven't and will ensure I catch up over the next few days.

So down to today's offering and as usual I am sharing my cuppa with Elizabeth HERE.....

A layout I did of my Dad, my Sister, my Nephew and our latest family member Dylan. Four generations together.  



Some close ups of my mug of today.  It is my Head Gardener mug. Hubby had an Under Gardener one too but that went a looooong time ago!  I am drinking some Glengettie tea, so this photo was a first thing in the morning brew!


For this layout I used a piece of VOS MME patterned paper which is part of their Washing Line papers.  I found a long snippet of turquoise cardstock and managed to get three rosettes and a partial strip of lace cut out.  In truth it is not quite the full length so I have tucked the gap under the photo!  Shhh!  Don't tell anyone!  The strip of lace is VOS and was the last of a strip of sticky backed lace pieces, but the sticky was not good any more.  The ribbons under the photo are an ensemble from the Snippets drawer which I then doodled round and the Love came from a mixed set of wooden words bought many years ago and only a few have so far been used.

The 4 Generations was cut using my Cricut using a snippet of Bazzill which was then covered with Distress Stickles.  I had one of those scary moments when the Cricut kept saying that the word was too big, so I had to keep altering the size until it would cut!  Phew!

Thanks for popping by.  As I have already stated, I am joining Elizabeth and Bleubeard with T on Tuesday as well as calling by the Snippets Playground as I have used a fair amount on here.  I hope you are enjoying the rest of this short working week!

Hello !

Thank you so much for your kind comment - I haven't been around for a while but I am trying to get back into the swing of things - I had a bit of a snoop around your blog and there is always so much lovely things to see! I probably won't be coming to the crop but I will be sending you all some ATCs via Julia!
Lots of hugs,
