Morning lovely people, well Yorkshire greets us - freezing cold this morning and yet again I find it is Monday and am unsure of who stole the weekend!  Good weekend overall considering where we were this time last week.  Had a lovely day yesterday, little bit of a catch up with family, got some Christmas items at a fayre and managed to make the Christmas pudding on stir it up Sunday!

First up a layout I did from the Beyond Limits sculptures at Chatsworth this one reminded us of a Jaume Plensa due to the lettering on the item, also managed to squeeze in the photo of me and hubby on the steps at Chatsworth, we had a fabulous evening when we went exploring! 

Next up my niece's 16th birthday - we went to Mablethorpe - she said she wanted to 'frolic' on the beach - hence the title - she has always loved the beach and being by the sea so it was a fabulous day out.  I loved this photo - taken by hubby from the promenade but there were quite a few 'obstacles' appearing in the same (people getting in the way that were completely unrelated to our party), thankfully with scrapbooking, you can use a few design elements to eliminate these out of the photos as it were to bring the eye back to the essential people on the photo!  

And the last one shows a sequence of photos caught with these two messing about in the kitchen playing 'sword fighting' with a carrot stick and vegetable peeler, they (and I) were in hysterics, love these two to the moon and back. 

So I hope Monday treats you well - have a great day! 


  1. I love your LOs Virginia. The photos always capture those treasured moments that you want/need to keep.
    Thank you so much for the birthday wishes.

  2. Lovely pages, love the Chatsworth photos!

  3. Your layouts are marvy. I especially like the pic of them all on the stairs from the other day!
    It seems the same kind of shenanigans (sp?) go on at our house when everyone helps to make dinner :-)
    Even though you didn't manage to grab the goodies in the giveaway, I'd love to send you a little something if you could send your mailing deets to me at
