About Me

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 and his wife Kim, their wee girl Freya, even smaller baby boy Freddie 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!

 Here is my card for the Let's Scrap challenge 1.18.12 for this week.  It is based on the sketch below.  I am still trying to use up my stash, and the papers are from Basic Grey, the embellishment is from K & Co., and the ribbon is from stash.

This sketch is from Simon Says Stamp and is the first time I have entered a card on this challenge Blog.  The card is being sent to Harrison, as he starts "big" school on 3rd February.  As he is in N.Z. I won't be there to see him setting off to school, but I hope this card will let him know that his Granny and Grampa are thinking about him.  It doesn't seem any time at all since he was born and now he is 5 and going to school - where does the time go?  Corinne and Rob are sending him to a school which has able bodied children as well as children with problems like Harrison.  He is so clever and needs stimulation and I know without a doubt he will fit right in and get on great!
  I used papers from K & Co. (small wonder), the chipboard is from Making Memories and the image of course is from Mo Manning!  It should have been entered in Mo's challenge last week, but guess what?  Yeah you're right, I was too late to get it in!!!!  GGGRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!! LOL!!!

Both of your cards are gorgeous!! I love the way you used each sketch!! The boy with the backpack really caught my eye the way that you surrounded him with books. It's like he is thinking about school. Lovely work!!
Thank you for joining us on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog.
