Ruby Rocket VE Day scrapbook layout

Whilst rooting around in my old family photos I re- recovered this wonderful photo of my Mum ( then a teenager ) and her Mum ( my nan ) at their VE day party. I had to scrap this photo and I knew just what to use.

    The Fruit Pixie sells the perfect Ruby Rocket Vintedge collection, which gave me this lovely layout and is all, except the letters, are available from The Fruit Pixie.

For my second page for the AJC India port of call I just had to do a page about my Uncle. He served as a ward orderly for the RAMC ( Royal Army Medical Corps ) in India. He is a big part me and my sisters life and we have grown up hearing about his adventures in such a foreign land. Stories like pockets filled with so many red fire ants he thought it was fur lined! Vultures that swooped down and pinched the breakfast from his tray as he crossed from the kitchen to the dinning room tent and just the other week he told me about a huge tornado that came and took the verandahs and sides off of a brand new hospital he was guarding!

Ruby Rocket Cook collection projects

I love Ruby Rocket and am lucky that The Fruit Pixie who I design for stocks it. This time I have been using their Cook collection and have come up with these 2 quick and easy little projects. All the products are available from http://www.thefruitpixie.co.uk/index.asp

This sweet little card is made with the Ruby Rocket Cook paper and some of the shapes from the die cut pack.

This accordion book is made using the papers and die cut shapes form the die cut pack.

Inside I have hidden another mini tag book, great for adding family recipes.

 I thought this would make a nice gift for a friend or keen cook or perhaps someone who is about to leave home for University or is getting married as it would be a fun way to pass on your family secret recipes!
To find instruction on how I made my book and card pop over to the Fruit Pixie blog-  http://thefruitpixie.blogspot.co.uk/

Holi festival journal page

In June the AJC port of call was India. So for my first page I celebrated the Hindu festival of Holi. It looks so much fun, in March people buy bags of coloured powders from the markets. They then throw them at their friends and family! So everyone spends the day covered in bright colours and having great fun!

   So in the spirit of the festival of Holi I too had great fun throwing paint and ink at my journal. I must admit I am rather pleased with the finished result.

I can't believe we are half way through the year on our AJC. I am really enjoying it and am proud of myself I have got this far as last year life forced me to give up in the April.

China Blue scrapbook layouts

The Ruby Rocket China Blue collection from the Fruit Pixie is great for scrapbooking and so I put together these 2 layouts using photos from our Austria holidays as the papers always remind me of Austria somehow. Full instructions and a list of all the things I used can be found on the Fruit Pixie Blog.
