My mum visited us last weeked for a couple of days and we managed some scrapbooking together, which was nice. She bought me some stash for my birthday, including a pack of Basic Grey “Porcelain” and some Rhonna Farrer mini bag-o-buttons in “French Twist” Colours – both being basically pale greens and pinks… which happen to be my mum’s favourites… luckily I quite like them too!
Frankly there aren’t many Basic Grey Papers I don’t like! My Sister bought me the Basic Grey Collection “Indian Summer” which is a bit of a misnomer as they are not particularly Indian in style, but more autumn leaves… with leaf and berry shapes!
And I recently bought (well back in July actually!) the BG collection “Wisteria” which is pale, greens, blues and lilac with some purple and earthy tones. So I’m “Stashed up”! and ready to make loads! Trouble is we never want to actually USE the stuff!… I’ll be brave!
I am currently using the BG Two Scoops collection for my 2007 Holiday to Disney Paris Album.
Anyway, I thought I would share some recent photographs…
When my mum was up last weekend we managed to spend a pleasant few hours at Southwold (on the east coast of England).
Yeah, no swim suits this time of year!
Although you can see a lot of cloud in the background of these photos, we had the sun all the time we were there, having lunch on the pier!
These “Beach Hut” Chimes were being sold in the Shop on the Pier, very indicative of the colourful beach huts which cost in the region of £60-100,000 Each!!! And you can only use them for half the year!
I’ll post the other pictures tomorrow…. of an Autumn walk.
