About Me

My photo
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 baby Freyja and dog Buddy. They are where I get my inspiration from and my Grandchildren are the subjects in most of my Scrapbooking layouts. I am happy when I am in my craft room, and love making cards as well as scrapbooks.

Paper Fun

Hello again, from a rainy Perthshire.  Yes, you've guessed it, the lovely warm, sunny weather didn't last very long!  We've had rain for 4 days now, and I mean solid UN-relentless rain.  Never mind, it has to stop sometime doesn't it? LOL!!

It is time to reveal another sketch on the Let's scrap sketch blogspot

I decided to use some photographs of Freya for this one, when I looked at the flower scroll in the middle of the sketch.  It is good to do girlie layouts when scrolls and flowers are on the sketch.

These photos show her playing with shredded paper, and obviously loving it! 

This is a wee close up of the journaling down the side.  Words which I think summed up her expression well. - Joy - Bliss - The Best of Times

 Here is the flower scroll down the middle of the layout.  I ripped some tissue paper and attached it to replicate the paper she was playing in.

This is the embellishments at the top of the page.  I used this wooden scroll and some of the flowers from Craft Box which is a new monthly subscription club 
where you get the most wonderful box full of delicious embellishments straight to your door. 
 It is such fun opening up the box to see what is inside!!  Why don't you have a look at their website, I'm sure you will be tempted! 

Materials used
Paper Papers - Bo Bunny, Little Miss
Resin frame, green flowers, lower wooden scroll - Prima
Journal Words - K & Co
Large wooden scroll and peach flower - Craft Box
Ribbon and Title Work - from stash

Smile for the camera

Good Morning from a lovely, sunny Scotland.  Eric and I have somehow managed to bring the good weather back from our holiday in Cape Verdi.  We are just back from a 2 week holiday which was wonderful! 

 It is lovely to see the sunshine, but the weeds in the garden are about a foot high!  We are slogging away in the garden, trying to get it to look nice again.
Now, onto the reason for my blog post today.  It's 1st of June, so that means it is Let's Scrap time!

Here is the sketch that we used 

This is the layout I created.  I am not happy with it though, so many things went wrong with it.  I used the wrong glue, my measurements were wrong and I wasted a load of card, and the layout isn't right, I lost a piece off an embellishment I wanted to use, the list goes on and on.  That's what happens when you rush things I guess.  I'm going to start the next sketch as soon as possible.  

Well, I suppose I should go and get some more gardening done.  It's Wednesday, so that means we will have Jackson later, so won't get much done then.
Bye for now, and please leave a comment, good or bad, it makes me so happy.
