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!

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!!!!

This is beautiful. I love teddy bo, as do most of the Cutie Pie team as well, as far as I know of;) You've coloured them up beautiful and I love the swirls and pearls going on there. Thanks for playing at Cutie Pie and good luck. Hope to see you back monday for a new challenge. Bettina xx
