~ Halong Bay ~

Something a little different for me. I've seen shimelle do this kind of layout a few times so thought I would give it a go. I thought it would be a quicker layout but it actually took me longer.

Again another Scrapagogo kit used. I absolutely loved this kit, think it was March 2012. Lots of layouts have already been made with this kit.

The photos show how people live on Halong Bay.

Well yet again I have managed abit of scrapping. Mum and I had a day together on Wednesday, I always seem to get more done when we are together.

I love this photo of us both whilst away in Vietnam. Again I am trying to use up my Scrapagogo kits. I used this month's blueprint to go as a sketch idea for this layout.

~ Tailor made ~

This is another layout from Vietnam, this time documenting the purchase of a tailor made dress.

In Hoi An they have streets full of tailors, however Yaly is an internationally acclaimed shop and we were encouraged to look there due to the quality of their work . I had a long dress made and it cost $75 which didn't seem bad.

I have used another Scrapagogo kit for this page. I absolutely loved this kit, it had all cute little sewing related embellishments and the beautiful lost and found paper. Hopefully I'll get some time this week to do a bit of crafting.

Good afternoon, I've been on nights and really don't want to get out of bed.

Whilst in Vietnam we chose to do an optional bicycle tour of a local village. You cycle round and stop off at various people's homes to see the traditional crafts they do. I hadn't been on a bike for over 10 years, so that and the fact that it was raining made it interesting.

I have used yet another Scrapagogo kit for this layout.

~ Long time no blog! ~

It's been a long while since I posted anything remotely crafty so with my new iPhone at the ready I'm aiming to get back on track.

With a new fella to keep me busy I haven't had much crafting time but plenty of photo opportunities.

So while the weather has been awful I have managed to get a few layouts done which I will share with you over the next week.

This is the first layout of my trip to Vietnam last year. I'm trying to use up some of my ScrapaGoGo kits which seem to be taking over my craft room.

This photo was taken after a very long flight from the uk. We went to a local restaurant with our guide and had a traditional Vietnamese breakfast - chicken noodle soup.
