Dublin can be heaven...

Sometimes it's nice to grab your camera and just be a tourist in your own city. We took a trip into Dublin city centre today and walked over the Halfpenny bridge, then a leisurely walk through Temple Bar and down to Trinity College where I showed my two girls where her mum and dad used to hang out wasting time/gaining an education many moons ago..it was a glorious day so everything looked so nice in the sunshine..

Even managed to grab a few pieces of chocolate biscuit cake from the college cafe. It hasn't changed in near 20 years...yum!

Castleknock Scrapbooking Class in Castleknock

Thanks to everyone who came along to our favourite venue at Castleknock parish hall today. We created this double layout on a travel theme using some lovely Heidi Swapp papers. This is how my LO turned out like and I have to say I was inspired today by everyone's travel photos - it has made me want to visit some more places! See you all next month ;-)

As it's the Summer I thought we would have a look back at past holidays for this month's scrapbooking class in Castleknock next Saturday 8th August..This month we are using some lovely Heidi Swapp travel themed papers which really sits well with B&W photos of your travels. Here's a sneak peak - still a couple of places available...Contact me for more information ;-)

Something crafty...

It's been a while since I showed anything crafty on the blog...what with holidays and keeping the kids occupied since school closed, there's not a lot of time to spare. I've been pottering about in my craftroom especially since my trip to Dublin's new IKEA store for yet another craft storage unit. Everything is nicely organised at last and I can find my stuff where it should be..

So this one was of our first trip to Eurodisney where we met Goofy. He visited the restaurant we were at on our first evening there and the girls were mesmerised by this giant goofball.

This one 'Perfect Pout' was inspired by a LO I saw in a magazine - the photo was perfect for the title. Thankfully she's not always like this!

The next one..I've called 'Home' and I made everyone in the family write out a little card for me to include what they like most about our home...

Finally a home isn't a home without the people you love in it...these are mine..
