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 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!

Marie hated her wee chubby cheeks, but I think she looked lovely!

World Cup

Well, bit of excitement this morning as I was on the local radio station - Tay FM taking part in a World Cup Quiz. I did very well, scoring the highest score so far, beating Italy 4 - 0. I have spent a lot of time scrapping and card making over the past couple of weeks, what with the World Cup and now Wimbledon on all the time. (You can probably tell I am not a Sports fan!!!) My daughter Marie is nagging me to finish her scrapbook, so I had better go and get some more pages completed for her! xx

This page is being published in issue 47 of Scrapbook Magazine - again, I am delighted that they have considered my work good enough to be published. It is such a nice feeling!!! This is wee Harrison "helping" his Mummy with the washing!
This is the first page I had published. I was soooooooo excited when I received the e-mail telling me. I was in my craft room squealing away like a mad thing. Hubby came through to see what was wrong with me - he thought I had hurt myself lol!!! This appeared in the very last edition of Scrapbook Inspirations. I was really sorry that this was the last edition as it is so hard to get good magazines which feature scrapbooking here in the U.K.
This was
This was a page showing Harrison standing up and teeting through the fence to see what his Daddy was doing - so cute!!!
Well, here we go, thought it was about time I got myself a blog. I have been trying to tidy up my scraproom today by finishing off some cards and random stuff I have lying about, but I think I have made it look worse instead of better!!! I bet that sounds familiar to anyone other scrapping/cardmaking ladies out there - nothing new there I hear you say lol!!!!! I treated myself to a cuttlebug this week and I am sooooooooooooooo excited - just need to buy some dies for it now to really get cracking!!! Okay I will now go and attempt to put some photographs on here. Wish me luck!!!
