Travel 1997

 So great to be connected to the world again. 
We have moved to a new house in a new area and we had to wait a while for our line to be installed. 
Well not as long as I have been missing from blogging but with packing and the move etc. etc. crafty things just got neglected.

My crafty goodies have been unpacked, admired, arranged and rearranged - so there was no excuse not to join in the challenge at Kraft + this month,  especially as I recently received a parcel from Dawn filled with travel themed embellishments!

This will probably be the last challenge I join in for 2015, as we have family arriving, and my craft room is also the guest room, but I am looking forward to all those exciting challenges which 2016 will bring.

So I hope you like this photo of my visit to England, my first since leaving in 1970. My daughter Ashleigh took the photo. It was the first part of our journey. From London we visited Grandad in York and then family in Newcastle. It was wonderful to see them again and they made us feel so welcome.  A trip to Edinburgh then back to London….. and the highlight of the trip for my daughter was a trip to Disneyland Paris. 

That’s what I love about scrapping is remembering all the good times.

Have a wonderful Christmas !


  1. Wow, gorgeous! What a lovely celebration of this memory. I love all the details, busy but still somehow not too busy.... you, know, we need to sit down sometime and look at your photos from this trip, because this may be the only one I have every seen, besides that one of Ash and Granddad. Can't wait to see this layout in real life. xxxxx

  2. Hi Wendy what an awesome scrap page full of memories of times gone by a superb design, glad the house move went well, wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
