Hallowe'en's Coming

Greetings from Scotland - still here - enjoying the weather - NOT!!!!! Reminds me why I don't live here anymore!

Spending loads of time with family, son goes back to sea on Friday, so seeing a lot of him and new granddaughter, poor DIL still feeling under the weather, getting used to less sleep and full time baby caring.

This latest Hallowe'en layout was from September Cricut Club, just the title on this one from Street Sign Solutions cartridge. I love the colours on this layout.

Love this new photo - my two children, and their two children - life is good.....

See you soon.

Love Jane

Two Granddaughters

My two darling Granddaughters - my heart is gushing.....

Rebekah took great delight in pointing out baby Erin's bits - baby's nose, baby'e eyes, baby's mouth, baby's ears, etc. Too gorgeous for words...

We are having a great time here in Scotland, catching up with family and friends. Just spending time with my Dad....

Family research is going well. For those that remember my post about GGrandfather - the youth he lost his life for did survive, which meant his life was not in vain. I found the article in the local paper from 1916 - that was a thrilling moment. All the old papers are now on microfiche and there is a great resource here in Ayrshire where all the parish records, old papers, census reports, etc. are held, making looking up ancestral stuff a wee tad easier. Will be spending more time there over the next few weeks.

Now to Cricut stuff...

This is one of the layouts from September Club - Pumpkin Patch.

DD had already decided that DGD #1 will be dressed as a pumpkin this Hallowe'en, so this layout was made with that in mind. DGD #1's photo will eventually be put on this layout.

Pumpkins are from Happily Ever After, the vines being cut off of the pumpkins to adorn the photo mat. The signpost is from the Camping Out Solutions cartridge. And I'll be a monkey's uncle if I can't remember who makes the papers I've used, not at home to check, oops.

So, that's about it for now. It's still taking way to long to publish these posts, but at least I can do it.

Back with more photo's and Cricut stuff in a couple of days....

Love Jane
