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!

I have been snowed in, so I have actually managed to do a couple of layouts!
The one above is for Let's Scrap 11:24:10 It shows Hadley with his Mummy's pink panties either on his head or round his neck! Not quite sure why he does this, but he makes a beeline for them whenever he sees them coming off the washing line! He is going to love us when he is older when we show him the photographs!

This one is for Sketchabilities #35 - it is a week late but never mind. This layout shows Hadley, Dylan and Harrison watching the T.V. Dylan obviously likes what he is seeing and is taking part!!!

Lastly, a picture of the snow in my street! What fun!

Here I am again - only two more days left to work and then I become a Lady of Leisure. No excuse then if I don't do any blogging!!!!! I have at long last managed to buy some Hanglar & Stanglar Stamps!! So excited. Just need to get them stamped and coloured now!

This is a layout I have made using a sketch from Scrapbook Magazine issue 50. I also used the free papers which came with the magazine. The photo shows my Mum holding my big brother Ian, and my big sister Moira is looking on shyly in the background. This was taken around 1948 - about 9 years before I came into the world! I was definitely an afterthought! Look at my Mum's stockings rolled down to her ankles!!! Shocking!!! LOL!!!!!!! Hope you like it and thanks for looking!

Here is my version of sketch 210 for This shows Hadley making a lovely mess eating his lunch. Took me much longer than usual to do this layout - not sure why, but I am happy with it now! Must keep up to date with all these challenges!!! :o)

I have not been scrapping as much, because I have been making cards, but here are a couple of layouts.

This one shows two Black and White images of Hadley and Dylan. They are both very serious, but I just LOVE these photographs. I made the layout simple so as the photographs took centre stage.

We went to a photographer and had some special photos taken. This was one of the prints and I just love it. The expression on Dylan's face is just so funny! Right I am going to make a promise to myself and I will be back here soon!!!!!!

This layout shows Hadley and Dylan in their wee car with poor Harrison pushing them from behind. They all play together really well, but they are a bit of a handful for their Mummy. I can't wait until we go back over to New Zealand to see them at Christmas.

Well, here I am again. I was through in Glasgow at the Craft show on Saturday. Very, very busy and a nightmare to get in to view some of the stands. Lots of very rude people who would not get out of your way even if you said "excuse me"!!

Anyway, here are some Christmas Cards I have been making.

Well, here I am again. I was through at the craft show in GLasgow on Saturday and it was wonderful. Very, very busy though, and a bit of a nightmare trying to get into some of the stalls. Some people are just sooooooooooooo rude and barge past or refuse to get out of your way when you politely say "excuse me" I made it in one piece though, I am glad to say.
Anyway, I have been busy making Christmas Cards and thought I would share some with you here.
