some scrappy stuff to share:

I know I have been absent on my blog of late. But I never seem to have enough hours in my day at the moment! I have been very busy training for my first half marathon and eating clean - whilst excellent for my health - can be a big time suck! Scrapping is another area that gets left behind!

BUT I have gotten in a scrappy groove over the last few days.. I have a layout for Stuck to share and some sneak previews of Studio Calico's march kit Neverland:

Stuck 15th Feb:
I love this layout of my Miss Milla - showing off her swimming skills! I used alot of the past kits from Studio Calico for this layout. I love having bits and pieces left over each month! Looking forward to seeing all the new designers at Stuck next month too! Can't wait to see what they create!

And these are my little sneaks for Neverland. I have been on a real learning curve with my silhouette cameo this month. Alot of successes and quite a few failures too - oops! It has been an adjustment - factoring in time to play, print and cut for my layouts. I am used to simply scrapping away with my scissors and tape! But it is fun too - and I am enjoying the outcomes! It sometimes takes a little more planning before getting creative though!

So there you go.. I promise to post again soon! I have some gorgeous photos of my daughter from her 11th bday to share and a family that I photographed over  the weekend coming up too..

I am not usre how I am fitting it all in - well sometimes I don't - but life ain't meant to be perfect!!




  1. Gorgeous summery colours going on here...yummy sneak peeks...good to be busy, but I miss seeing your scrappy work:):)

  2. Very fantastic post.I really appreciate you for sharing this great post.It is extremely good and very helpful for me..

  3. Yep life can get busy! Lovely top layout, and the sneeky's look fabulous!

  4. No, life is not always perfect and neither are we. Love the layout babe.

    Take it easy Cecil and ensure you allow enough rest time for your body to recoup. We do run a crazy schedule with a young family and finding time for us is pretty limiting (however I did love your soaking in the bath pic on IG).

    You are a super star in my eyes and I am so proud of you and your marathon goal!! That's so awesome, wish I was there running beside you (well in spirit you know) I haven't been a huge fan of running. Love the concept but running and me just don't gel. I think the stitch was obvious there!! :-)))) But you on the other hand are a machine!!! Superb effort! Keep running.........

    Hope Hallie had an awesome bday and looking forward to seeing the pics. Much love Xx Dani

  5. These colours are incredible! Love it. Good luck for the half! I only ever got as far as a 10, but it felt great to reach that goal!

  6. Very fantastic and well-written post.I read and liked the post.It,s extremely good and very helpful for me.
