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!

Here is my take on the Pencil Lines sketch 226. The picture shows Harrison helping his Daddy to water the garden. It is busier than the way I normally scrapbook, but I really like the end result. i have actually managed to complete this sketch in time to put it onto the Pencil Lines website - usually I am way too late!
I am a happy girl today! One of my layouts was featured in Scrapbook Magazine Issue 53. This was a scraplift from a previous edition of the magazine. The photo shows my Mum, my big brother and one of my big sisters. Mum is out haning washing on the line. I love the way her stockings are rolled down to her ankles!!! This was taken about 10 years before I was born as I was a bit of an afterthought!

First of all - a card for a baby boy - my friend's daughter has just had a baby so I made 3 cards in order to choose the one I preferred!

This is a birthday card for a wee boy.  This is another wee boy's card - I am in love with Hanglar and Stanglar stamps at the moment, I am having great fun colouring them with my promarkers. So much so that my "blush" marker has run out! Will need to get another one real soon!

This is a layout showing Harrison, Hadley and Dylan in their wee speedos - or "budgie smugglers" as we like to call them!!! They were playing in the garden in their paddling pool and had such a good time. - We did too just watching them!!!
This is a layout showing Harrison when he was just a few months old. His Daddy is a Chef, so they dressed Harrison in a Chef's hat and placed him in a pan with items strewn around about! Poor wee guy, you can tell from his face that he wasn't happy! Well, I must go and work on another layout!
