A Scrappy Weekend

Last weekend my friend Julia came and stayed with me on Saturday night.We had a whole weekend of scrapbooking, for once I managed to get quite a l0ot done. I have found some old photos of my sister and her boys from when the boys were little. I pulled out a big pile of pages I had made but just needed photos adding. It felt great to finally get them finished.
I then used up some scraps and scrap lifted this page, I love how it turned out, the original is here. Don't you just love Pinterest for inspiration and ideas
It was also where I got the inspiration for the landscaping of my front garden, for ages I have wanted to get rid of the grass. I love the lawn when it is cut,neat and tidy, but it is shared and the slope is worse on my half. It was getting harder to keep it tidy. I decided to get some hard landscaping done. So this is the before

and this is the after
I just now need to decide what plants and what colour gravel I want to fill it with. I am so happy with it and even happier I don't have to cut the grass anymore.
