PattyB Scraps has a great new bundle in her stores. It is called 'Project Restoration' and you can get it here:

Here is the preview of 'Project Restoration':

I made this layout using photos of Tyler with the penguins that he made with the help of his grandad:

We went to Brighton for the day last Monday and Tyler met Darth Vader on the promenade and just had to have a battle with him:

He also enjoyed himself on the rides on the Pier:

Well, that's all for today. Be back soon with some more photos and layouts.

'Madelyn' by PattyB Scraps

PattyB Scraps has a sweet kit called 'Madelyn' which you can find in her stores here:

Here is the preview for 'Madelyn':

And here is the layout using 'Madelyn' and some photos of my grandson Tyler with the Tinman he discovered outside a DIY store:

Layout design by Tyler. I had set up my background for the layout and Tyler said 'Can you put my Tinman photos on your paper, please, Nanny'. He told me which photos to use and where to place them and chose the frame to go with each photo. Layout designer in training!

When I saw the beautiful background paper I knew just the photos I wanted to use in my layout. We took Tyler to Whipsnade Zoo on Monday and we took some photos of Patagonian Caveys.

I was so pleased with the way this turned out.

'Joan' by PattyB Scraps

I made a layout using ‘Joan’ by PattyB Scraps which you can find on sale until 24 August (30-50% off):

Here is the preview of the 'Joan' Collection':

For my layout I used photos of my husband's parents Phyllis and Fred. The baby in the photo is my husband Richard:

My grandson Tyler is staying with us for the next two weeks and he has been working in his Grandad's shed making some penguins:

He had great fun pushing out all the pieces and sanding the rough edges. Grandad helped him put them together and they have to put a coat of varnish on them to protect them and they will be finished.
