This week has been a glorious week weather wise. Even when it's been cloudy it's been warm and when the sun has shone like today it's been lovely giving us probably the last chance to go out without jackets and layers. Strange to think that the week before I contemplated for a split second putting the heating on and quickly ordered boots for work so not to get cold toes, boots which arrived the day the weather warmed up and have since sat in their box in the wardrobe but I'm not going to complain! Even though we have been tricked into thinking it is still summer there are tell tell signs that autumn is definitely on its way with forest floors now covered with a carpet of leaves.

I've been lucky enough to have another weekend off this weekend and with no jobs which needed doing I finally managed to sit down and do some scrapping! I haven't scrapped in AGES and with challenges waiting to be done, two kits waiting to be used and another being shipped soon I was starting to panic that my mojo had gone on holiday and was never coming back! The first layout I did was for a challenge my friend Gemma had set for us. She wanted both of us to make a layout based on this sketch and to use something round
The second layout I managed today is a companion layout to this featuring my mums side of the family. For this layout I used this sketch set by Caz for Sketchy Scrappers.
So there you are I'm back in the scrapping groove and you've met my family!

Yesterday we came home from a road trip to Wales.
We took the long & scenic route and eventually arrived at good old Shell Island. As it was your typical grey, cloudy, windy Welsh day we decided after last years fight against gale force winds to pitch in the sheltered side of the island facing the hills rather than the sea.

Today we went to an antique centre in Market Deeping as we were in the area. I love this centre as it is made up of various sellers who pack as much as they can into their small cubicle to sell so you can have a good rummage through the bric a brac. They even have a craft shop in the back selling stash but I walked straight through as I don't NEED anything, it took a lot of doing I can tell you lol! While we were there I spotted this cheeky sign which made me giggle

Another month has flown past and yet again we're at the start of another. This month I have decided to join in with Sian over at From High in the Sky for Storytelling Sunday where we share the story behind a precious object in our lives.
This month I'm sharing the most precious object to me, my beloved Snoopy!
