Shy at first. Like getting and giving hugs, like my own company but like having 1 on 1 time with my friends. Not keen on big changes. Like to know what's happening!

Hi Everyone! 

Time to go hopping again!  Hopping Holidays!

This blog hop is all about vacations - one that we've been on or one we would like to go on.  I always get so excited about holidays, as most people do.  I'm a bit of a shopaholic, so I look forward to all the new shops and market stalls I can go to when I'm away!

My post is of my last foreign holiday which was to Portugal with my best friend Lyndsey.

I hope you like looking at the scrapbook pages I've made to remember the holiday.  They are all 8x8" in size and have been made up with various patterned backing papers and embellishments.  I used my XCut cutting system to cut various shapes for matting and layering.  I have also used my cuttlebug and alphabet set along with flower dies to embellish the pages.


If you wish to take part and re-live a favourite holiday you've been on or a dream holiday, then click the following link and that will take you to the right place. 

If you've been hopping already, you should have arrived at me by visiting Gill at , if you have, brill, if not, hop along to Nancy's blog at the start and see what she has made.  You'll be amazed!! There's so many talented people taking part in the hop, I really recommend you have a look at their blogs and what they have made for this hop.  Oh, and remember to leave a comment on each blog, you could win a great bundle of Blog Candy!!!

So here's a list of everyone taking part in this great hop.  Make sure you hop to everyone.  Monica should be your next stop, so hop along to

  25. great pages! :) I love the ruins in Portugal, can you provide some more info on those? I'm not up on the archaeologic history of Portugal but those ruins are quite interesting & intriguing.


  26. Thank you everyone for all your kind comments. They're not actually ruins 'Chelle, it's sand statues! Hundreds of statues made from sand. I think it's a yearly festival. It was amazing! I'll try and get some more photos of them up.
