My husband and I have recently taken our boys to one of our favourite places, Barcelona in Spain. We absolutely love it there and they loved it too. I havent't scrapbooked that trip yet, this line would be perfect! Thanks for the chance to win.
Ahh, I remember that layout from Simple Scrapbooks. I dog-earred the page and scraplifted it soon afterwards. It's one of my favourite layouts.

I love your posts about scrapbooking. I love your posts about home decor and thrifting. I love your posts when you're having a moan / letting it out. I love your posts about Jimmy and how hard life can be when he's deployed and how great it is when he's back. I love your posts about being a mummy (there's one that always springs to mind about you giving yourself a timeout in the laundry room - great advice!). Your blog is perfect Stephanie. x

I only got an iPhone at christmas and I am loving it. So far I've only used my phones in my Project Life, but I definitely plan to scrap them. Especially as I've hardly taken any with my DSLR or compact camera since I got it!

Love these Cathy. Have just downloaded them from DD, can't wait to use them tomorrow for my Project Life. The square photo one is perfect for instagram photos!
