January BOXX OF SCRAPS: New Years Eve Party - Neighbourhood Trick or Treat - Year One


I was lucky enough to create the January Boxx of Scraps kit at the BOXX
I completed a few layouts out of the kit but the first one that I want to share is a double LO

I usually get positive feedback from my double layouts so I decided that I wanted to create something different for everyone who subscribes to have a go at.
The kit contained all sorts of yummy stuff from Jenni Bowlin, Manor House Creations and Bo Bunny

Here are the pages individually -

If you are not a subscriber to any of the kit groups I highly recommend that you have a look - they are great value for money and provide great inspiration from the DT every month.

This is the second layout I created -

And here is the third layout I created -

Just a closie of the cluster in the corner - 

Thanks for looking

Break Up Songs

Over at Scrap That Song for the month of February instead of concentrating on the lovey dovey Valentines Day we decided to do the opposite............Break Up Songs

It is really hard to pick a break up song when you are happily married - so what does BB do? I ask my facebook friends ..... and immediately I get texts asking what's happened and an inbox full of messages 
( made me giggle ). The gorgeous Jess Mackenzie came up with P!NK's song "So What" and immediately I was like 'deerrrrrr BB she is your favourite singer' - so the song had now been chosen by the facebook gods.

Here is the song for anyone who does not know it ( I would be disappointed if you didn't ).......

There is a section in the film clip where P!NK chainsaws down a tree with her and her husband's name on it ( Alecia + Carey ).

This section of the video clip has a fond memory for's how my gorgeous little ALECIA got her name. 
Here is my layout......

Some Prima goodness and the PP is Graphic 45

My Journalling.........

A bit of Kaiser goodness with My Minds Eye Alpha's

See......break up songs don't always have to be depressing. 

Happy Scrappy Days
