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!

 Hello everyone!  It is a lovely sunny day and everyone seems to have a smile on their faces, it makes such a difference doesn't it?  I have made the above card for the Cutie Pie challenge which is Think Pink with Rabbits!!  I have used a digital stamp from Sassy Cheryl and I think she is sooooooooooooooo cute!! It is the first Sassy Cheryl stamp I have bought, but I know I will be back for more real soon!!!   I had the chance to use my new Spellbinder die which I love! I used paper which was free from a magazine, but can't remember which one!!
This layout is based on a sketch from Scrapbook Magazine Issue 62.  I used Nitwits Papers which were free in Issue 61.  The calendar spinner by Maya Road  is set to February 28th which is the date Jackson was born. I took the photo when my daughter wasn't looking and it makes it a better photo because it is natural. I think she looks pretty remarkable considering she had given birth just a few hours previously!!  I cut the deep hearts border with my cuttlebug using a Martha Stewart die.  I cut pink card and had it stuck on and didn't like it, so I cut the same panel again in blue card and layered it up.  I love the effect which was a happy accident!!  Every day a school day!  Well, must go.  I have had workmen in all day building a new conservatory and need to go tidy up now!
Thanks for stopping for a lookie and please leave a comment if you visit!

Jackson's First layout!

Well, here it is, the very first layout showing Jackson, my wee Grandson.  These were the very first photos taken of him when he was just minutes old!  This is based on the sketch below from Let's Scrap.  I have only used the left of the page, as I couldn't think what to do with the right hand side!!

I'm off to get some knitting done now.  I am attempting to knit 2 Thomas The Tank Engine Cardigans for the twins, Hadley and Dylan.  Watch this space! LOL!!!
Thanks for having a look!

Cutie Pie Challenge

 I have made this card (above) to enter into the Teddy Bo Challenge, but guess what?  I was too late!  where does the time go?  Anyway I am also entering the same card into the Cutie Pie Challenge which is Pearls & Swirls.  It is a bit different from the usual cards I make, and I am still not sure if I like it or not! LOL!!!  the image is from Teddy Bo and I used paper from My Mind's Eye. The pearls came from a $2 dollar shop in New Zealand.  Oh how I wish I had bought more of them when I saw them!

This is a card which I have made for my niece who has just had a wee baby girl, Sophie Marie.  I have not been to see her yet, but we have arranged a visit for the first week in April.  Lesley my niece is 5 months younger than Marie, and I tool lots of pictures of the 2 of them together when they were little, so I am looking forward to seeing their two babies together and taking more photos!!  Definitely will be one for the scrapbook!  The image is from Just Inklined and is coloured with promarkers.  The ribbons and flowers are just from my stash.  Well, I must go as I am feeling dreadful and don't know if I have caught a bad head cold, or if it is Hay Fever.  My nose is just streaming and I keep sneezing.  I was fine one minute, then sneezing and drippy the next!  No layouts made this week, but I have plenty photographs of Jackson to make a start on his album.  Watch this space1 LOL!!!!

 He is here!!!!!!!
 Please welcome Jackson Alexander Munn born at 08:09 on 28th February 2012 weighing 7lbs.
 He is absolutely gorgeous and has a mass of black hair just like his Mummy had!
 I can't believe it is nearly a week since he was born and I haven't had the time to put a post on here! LOL!!!
 This is the card I made for his Mummy and Daddy using a new stamp from Magnolia.  It was just perfect!
This is his wee hand beside his Uncle Greg's thumb.  Greg was terrified to hold him and was frightened he would break him I think!  He will get used to it though!

I'm off to get some crafting done now before Marie Willie and Jackson appear for a visit!
Thanks for stopping by!
