Hard to believe it has been over 2 years since out trip to Scotland. Our trip lasted 3 weeks and was also our long awaited honeymoon, seeing our trip to Niagara Falls for me was a bust. Honeymoon Capital please and a good dose of SAR'S would put a damper on any ones trip.
Scotland was for me our true honeymoon. We flew direct from Ottawa into Glasgow via Zoom Airlines (which is no longer in business) and I felt like I had arrived home. I don't know why but every time I think of Scotland my heart aches. If you said to me Jo-Ann you could live anywhere I would say Oban, Scotland when do I pack. I love the history, the romance, the rolling hills, the rain, the food, the Gaelic language. You simply can't persuade me otherwise that's where I want to die. For my last days on earth, for my last breath it is Scottish air I will breath.
All that said here is a little sample of the pages that I have done so far.
By the way did I mention graveyards are one of my favorite places to visit, grave stones have a beauty all of there own and the older the better.
Glasgow is like Ottawa but better seeing it was declared official a city in the 12th century it has a bit more to offer. We love Glasgow, the city is clean, easy to get around (they have a very small underground rail) the food is unbelievable, we enjoyed a variety of cuisine from Thai, Indian, Italian, I must admit I don't think we had a bad meal the whole time we were there. If you are ever interested in going I can suggest some fantastic restaurants.
Skyline of Edinburgh
The Dugald Stewart Monument is a memorial to the Scottish philosopher Dugald Stewart. It is situated on top of Calton Hill, overlooking Edinburgh city centre.The monument was built in 1831 to the design of architect William Henry Playfair, and modelled on the Choragic Monument of Lysicrates in Athens, Greece. It therefore fits in with other Greek-influenced architecture in the area, such as the National Monument. Below is a picture of this overlooking the Edinburgh city center.
This stamp set is just so much fun, here are a few scrapbook pages that I did up and a mini gift bag that we did at Josee's (our leader) at Xmas but using Love U Much Stamp Set.

Valentines Mini Magazine Holder
- Using Love U Much Bundle
Hard to believe that the holidays are over and its back to work in a few days. I have been working nonstop on my next big workshop(s) Valentines Day and what a better way then with this little oh so cute and adorable mini magazine holder and I mean mini. This little holder will hold approx 10 3 x3 cards including envelopes and it uses just one 8 1/2 by 11 sheet of card stock.
The Mini Magazine Holder template was designed by Becky Roberts and can be found at http://www.inkingidaho.blogspot.com/.
The Love You Much Bundle is on sale for 20% off until Jan 31st.
Just a quick announcement that Stampin' Up! has a number of stamps and accessories (including the Love You Much Bundle) on backorder which prohibits customers from adding these items to their on-line shopping cart. Most items are scheduled to begin shipping next week so the delay, although frustrating, won't be long!
If you experience this issue, you may submit an order directly to me firstname.lastname@example.org.
As a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, I'm able to bypass the backorder "block," place the order and will email you an itemized list and total for your review, including a link for secure credit card payment. It's an extra step but it gets you in position for the backordered goodies pronto.
DON'T MISS OUT!Little Cards with a Big Message
Also included are 4 different 3 x 3 cards just the right size for a little message and matching envelope.
