Oma Jo


Hey there :) I just have a scrappy share for you tonight. 
We are enjoying the company of a lovely visitor at the moment, Oma Jo. 


Oma Jo is my hubby's grandma and she is here all the way from Holland. Not a bad feat for a lady in her 80's if you ask me! Its about 25-30 hours to get here, depending on airlines and stop overs and she comes every two years to spend the summer with us all. We are so lucky that she is able to do this still as we aren't really in a position to travel over to Holland to visit her, even though we would really love to.   We are spending as much time as possible around at my in-laws while she is here so the boys are able to enjoy the time with her. And of course, get many happy snaps!


The papers are left overs that I have torn. They are MME Lime Twist (mostly) and some MME Stella Rose for the folded wheels. The brackets are old rub ons that I've had hiding in my collection and all of the buttons are from my button collection.

For this page I based the layout very loosely on Kellie's sketch over at The Sketchy Challenges. It is really versatile and works for both cards and scrap pages.... actually... Smash books too! Anything crafty you want to try out.  
Now that I am thinking about it.... I have an idea to use the sketch on some patchwork! I wonder if I have the right fabrics laying around? Hmm........

I would like to enter...

Ok... that's it from me today! 
I hope you're having a lovely Monday.

  15. You just make me wanna scrap! This is brilliant! So colourful and fun! I haven't scrapped for 8-9 months I think ... I go on a retreat each year and the bug stays with me for a while then I go back to colouring and cards lol. I really must pull out some photos and get going... you got me inspired ... Enjoy the time with Oma Jo ...
