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 managed to do the Let's Scrap sketch in time this week Woo-hoo!!!  It was a 2-pager too!!!  I got a whole load of photos of the boys printed and they arrived in the post yesterday, so I set to work.  I realised that I hadn't printed any off since September of last year, and, as Corinne usually sends around 70 at a time, there were a lot!!!

I decided to use the photos of Harrison's 5th Birthday and they show him at Kindy.  All his little friends drew him pictures and he sat at the front of the class with his teacher and talked about what they had drawn for him.  He then got to blow out the candles!  We were over in New Zealand the past two years, but didn't manage it this Christmas, so I am really missing them all dreadfully.  I wish it was a case of just jumping in the car and going to see them instead of having to fly to the other side of the world.

Here is the Let's Scrap sketch.  I am trying to use up papers from my stash as I have soooooooooo much.  These papers were Fancy Pants - About a Boy and Echo Park - A walk in the park and Little Boy. I'm not sure where I got the wee chipboard embellishments, but they have been in the box forever!!!  Well, must go and do some more knitting for this wee Grandson of mine who will arrive in the next few weeks.  The midwife thinks that mMarie is 35 weeks and not 32 weeks as she thought, so panic is just beginning to set in!  Here is a photo of her looking absolutely swell!!

Bye for now!
