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!

Brilliant News!!!!

 My youngest daughter, Marie, had her first scan last Tuesday and here it is!!  Baby is due February 26th, so maybe we will have a Leap Year Baby!!  She told me 6 weeks ago that she was having a baby, but I had to wait until she had her scan before I could tell people - so I am telling everyone now!!!! Chuffed to bits and my knitting needles are red hot!! 

Okay, back to business!!  LOL!!!  This is the August Challenge on Let's Scrap.  It runs for a whole month (obviously) and I have only just got round to doing something with it.  I have started an album all about our holidays so I raided the Cyprus album and found these photos.  This was when I achieved one of the things off my 'Bucket List'  I wanted to Paraglide, but Eric was trying to talk me out of it.  I was determined, and set off one day and just walked right on to the boat and he had to follow bless him!!  I though it was amazing and loved every minute.  When I came back down onto the boat, the young chap asked Eric if he wanted to do it.  He nodded his head and was strapped in and away he flew.  When he came back down he was shaking like a leaf!!!!!  I think he only agreed because of his male pride in front of these young, fit Greek Gods!!  He absolutely hates heights and it took him the rest of the day to recover!!!  We both received a certificate to mark the occasion, and I have made a pocket on the back of the layout to fit them in.
I used Bazzill Cardstock and flowers, papers from My Mind's Eye (Penny Lane and Abbey Road)  The small journalling letters round the bottom are by Sam & Lucy and the journaling blocks are by K & Co.
