Thursday Freebie

I haven't posted a freebie for a while but here is one for you now

Full Kit

Download here Chocolate Chip

I used some of these elements in my layout This little Family

The adventures of Bungly or Bungly's adventures

I have a little black and white cat,
He's a stuffed toy, but very real for all that.
He came to me soon after I moved;
How he found me has yet to be proved.

He appeared one day sat on my bed
with a note tied around him, which simply said -
Hello my name is Bungly, I've come to live with you.
So I welcomed him in, what else could I do?

He's decided Twenty Ten will be his year
he's off on adventures, will he get far?
I hope he does and enjoys it no end,
Taking me with him as his friend.

He is one of my little treasures in an album I'm making and here is his page

Hello My Name is Bungly

This Little Family

How many photos did you take over the Christmas holiday? I seem to have taken quite a lot, clicking away to ensure I get the best photos I can. It does mean that I have a several almost identical photos but at least it does mean I have some decent ones to play with.
I am really pleased with this layout

My Year in a nutshell

I wanted to do the final challenge on Scrap like you mean it, which is to scrap 2009. wow big order but I managed to bring it down to size, and after all what is one year in a lifetime and what's more, what is 12 months 52/3 weeks 365 days in the history of the universe? nothing a minuscule dot, an atom of time.
So here it is my year 2009 in just 12 photos but in these photos I can remember my year, what it brought and what it held the good times and the not so good times.

Just a bit of fun

I have written a short poem about the wonderful chaos of my home at Christmas time. I have used it on my Christmas Journal but thought I would share it here too.

Wrapping presents on the floor
Postman knocking at the door
Decorations in every space
Every room a special place
Snowflakes glistening in the sun
Fire bright to warm each one
Delicious smells from cooking pot
Minced pies, puddings and the lot
Sweets and fruit and nuts and nibbles
Favourite drinks what’s your tipple?
Chaos reigns but do I care
No, Christmas day is almost here

Finishing Christmas presents

Today I thought I had better finish the album I was putting together for my Daughter in Law's Mum, I had several layouts done with paper and elements that I knew I could print off digitally. Then I realise I had one page that I had left blank, right near the beginning. Well any excuse to do another digi page, but Oh how long it took me to do such a simple page as this is ridiculous I just could not get it to look right, still in the end I did and am pleased with it now so can put it on my blog with pride.

Ten Piper Piping

I have been inspired again by a layout on Design Digital so instead of wrapping presents or going shopping or even the dreaded house work I have been playing. I must set aside this evening and wrap presents then at least that will be one more thing crossed off my list of things to do (not that I make a list but hey ho)
Ten Piper Piping

Well I have now done most of the wrapping but not put any labels on yet, good job I have used different papers for each person so at least I know whose is who's (or should that be who's is whose?) Lost my scissors and the sellotape in amongst all the paper and bits so give up for now will finish another day.

Daniel & the Christmas Tree

I have been doing the Journal your Christmas challenge so not posted much on here lately but doesn't mean I haven't been scrapping. see my Christmas Blog
This layout was for the weekly challenge on UKScrappers so thought I would put it here. It is a scraplift of one of Katie Pertiet's from Design Digital
Daniel & the Christmas tree
A place for me to put the pictures of layouts I have done that I am pleased with, to put in the poems I write and to add snippets of things that have caught my eye
