About Me

My photo
Perth, Perthshire, United Kingdom
Welcome to my little corner of the World! I live in Perthshire Scotland with my wonderful husband Eric. We have a daughter, Corinne who is married to Rob and lives in New Zealand, with their boys Harrison and twins Hadley and Dylan. Marie who has a wee boy Jackson, and Greg who lives with his girlfriend Kim and their wee girl Freya and dog Buddy. I am happy when I am in my craft room, and I love making cards for Charity and also for commissions. I love scrapbooking, and I get my inspiration from my Grandchildren. They are the subjects in most of my Scrapbooking layouts. I have just started to do Mixed Media work, and I am loving it!! I have just started a craft group at our local Church centre, aptly called Saints and Scissors Club! If you can't find me, I will be in my craft room, buried under tons of stash lol!

This is the new sketch for the let's Scrap design team.  Numbered 8-31-11.  The layout shows some my direct Family Tree on my Mother's side.  It starts with my Great Great Grandparents right through to my girls.  My sister Moira has done a wonderful job tracing our family tree, and I got the photos and the information from her.  She has discovered that President William Mackinley of America was one of our ancestors!!  I used K & Co papers (Charlotte Range) and bits and bobs from my stash.  I  will carry on and make more layouts like this, and then the girls will know where they come from!!  I am trying to get photos from my husband's famly in order to do the same for my Stepson, but I am struggling to get any photos.  It is such a shame, but we don't have that problem now, do we?  It is so easy to take photos and videos with our cameras and mobile phones!! No excuse for scrapbookers fo the future!!   Must go have Wedding invitations to make and I have still to upload a card for the Bella and Bronte Challenge.  I wonder what I would do if I was still working??  LOL!!!
