Saturday Scrapping

Last Saturday was my scrap day at school and it was also my friend Elizabeth's birthday. One of the scrap girls, Sharon went to my favourite cake shop and bought back all these lovely cupcakes for Elizabeth's birthday. Now I did have a picture of me eating one, but for some reason it did not come out, so you will have to pop over to Anne's site Pretty to see us all tucking in. The picture can be found at the bottom of her post and I am the one on the left, not the right as I said earlier (thanks Dar). I have to say the cakes were utterly yummy.

I managed to create three layouts. Again these were for my aunt's album and now I only have four pages left to do. I am desperate to start making some of my own pages again.

This one of aunt as a teenager is definitely one of my favourites. I find it really strange to imagine my auntie as a teenager.

My auntie is an absolute nutter, so it was no surprise to come across this picture of her as Father Christmas.

My mum is actually is in this picture. She is on the far right, as this picture was taken when my parents went to Wales to visit my aunt. I am quite pleased with my rays of sun in this one, but not sure about the rest.

I am off now to start packing and getting things ready for our holiday, as my parents will be arriving in a couple of hours and I need to get ready before they descend. They will be living near me for good at the end of the month. I can't wait to actually be able to go out and have a baby sitter, as my husband and I have not been able to do this for five years!

Have a fabulous day.


  1. That is my number one arm twisting reason on Craig to let us move to Sussex. It's the thing that sways him the most. We haven't had a date without any kids since before Ruby was born. She's just turned 2!! :P His Mum would love to have the girls more I just know it ;)

    Love your pages - your style is very fresh. The sun one is very summery, it's great :D Can't wait to get some crafting done too but can't even see my desk let alone craft on it!

  2. The one thing I really miss about living close to my inlaws was the periodic babysitting.

  3. Hi, Viviene! I just love looking at all those cupcakes! Mmmmmm...

    And those scrapbook pages are simply wonderful.

  4. yummy cupcakes!
    and wonderful scrapbooking. very cool that yoy made some for your aunt

  5. Great scrapbook pages, Vivienne!

  6. Those cupcakes look so yummy but I'm pretty sure you're on the left of that pic and not the right. lol.

    Your scrapbook pages are awesome as usual. I've really gotten into my knitting lately. I'm doing a bunch of squares in different patterns that I'll weave together later.

    I think it's great that your parents will be living near you. I can just feel how happy that makes you through your writing.

    Have a great holiday!

  7. Lovely scrap pages! Those cupcakes look so yummy! I think I'm going to have to go raid the fridge for snacks now. :)

  8. Yummy looking cupcakes. Making my stomach growl. :) Your pages look great as well.

  9. Lovely pages - i'm always impressed at how much you manage to accomplish on scrap days. I seem to be lucky if I get one layout finished.

    I think I would find it pretty stressful having my parents any closer to me! Mind you, I might think differently if I had any children I needed babysitting! Glad it's all working out.

  10. You've made my tummy rumbly with those gorgeous cupcakes!

    And more lovely pages! You've been so productive lately, Vivienne.

    I can definitely see why you're excited about having some family babysitters close by. That's something we've never had. And I'm sure that's only one of the many things you're looking forward to having your parents close by. :D

  11. Thanks for sharing your wonderful scrapping pages and the cupcakes look to die for!!
    That is so lovely your parents will be living close by, enjoy the time this will give you with your hubby.

  12. I want a cupcake! The ones you posted here are so pretty and yummy!

    Have a great holiday, Viv! Will be missing you...

  13. I have a half an hour until my lunch hour, stomach is growling, and your cupcake laden site and post are NOT helping :)

    I love your scrapbook pages. Lovely!

  14. Those cupcakes look absolutely to die for!

    I hope you're having a wonderful holiday, Vivienne!

  15. I want those cupcakes! Wonderful layouts yet again. I'm always impressed.

    Also, I so want a nutty auntie who dresses up as Santa Claus.
