A Scrapbooking seed planted

Its February - yay! I like this month so much more than horrid January.
When I was blog hopping the other day, I came across this idea.....
I love it when one idea can start a ricochet of ideas in ones head. I knew I would have to make a book about this. Why do I scrapbook? My first reaction is for my kids but when I thought about it more, there were loads of reasons.
So piled up some yummy stash, printed some pictures and started to make....

I love this Making Memories range, Just Chillin' Girl.

So I don't want to give too much away until I have finished my book but I am in love with this project. I love Shimelles ideas, they are like little scrapbooking seeds which she plants in your head, then to grow into something wonderful.


Talking of wonderful, how cute is this?! Knitting Nancy


Not sure if I brought it because the packaging is so wonderfully retro or because I liked the thought of making the little flowers. Either way £2 cant be bad. I love charity shops. I cant go to the High Street without going in one.
Well best go and do the kido's dinner.

I too remember those knitting Nancy's, and I'd love to know how you make those flowers, they'd look ace on layouts...
