ATDML guest designer- Simple Stories

I was chuffed to be asked for a second time to be a guest designer for A Trip Down Memory Lane's  gallery this month.
The range to work with was  Simple Stories .It actually got me crafting again as it's been a bit un-crafty around here lately,and when I shut myself away in the room of stash I actually really enjoyed it.I surprised myself and came up with quite a few once I got going.. Mel has been poorly and I was a tad late getting my creations to her so they are not on the gallery as yet,but you can see the other great projects the team have come up with here... their designs are all varied and beautiful as always....Here's what I came up with.

The main themes for these papers were travel and life documented,but the ladies also said if you had any 'yearography' projects to send those too....
 This is one of my favourite photos of my middle son and his girlfriend - I used one of the new EK success dimensional flower punches for the flower..

I
I was really on a roll and got going on a mini book too


I won't bore you with too many of the pages
 

......and I made a tag too...

I've been itching to blog these as I haven't had a lot else to talk about really - Dad is in hospital again so I'm over there after work every evening and by the time I get back and have dinner it's too late to do a lot else.Hope you all have a great Saturday.

Some great pages there,Denise....I particularly like the mini book.
I've been thinking of getting some of the year-o-graphy papers myself.

Simple Stories are my favourite papers right now. I love the way you used them, especially your Year in Review. A great idea, something for me to think about. Congraulations on being a guest designer - hope you can find time to enjoy this while looking after your dad.

I love their papers. Used a bunch for our summer vacation. I think the journaling cards and fonts are what really make it for me.

Dimensional flower punches? Is this something else that I need to get? ;-) Love the flowers so I guess the answer is 'yes'! Lovely projects Denise and I love the way you have used the photo of us receiving Deb Turtle's package. It must have done you good to shut yourself away from the real world for a little while and do some crafting.

Those flowers are amazing! It's so good to see you scrapping again and I'm delighted that you got another guest designer spot (mind you, I'm not surprised they asked you back!)

I'm thinking about you and your Dad x
