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 from a very cold and wet Scotland!!  Talk about April showers?  They are alive and kicking and living right here!! LOL!!! My washing doesn't know what it is doing.  It is hung up to dry, then it is taken in again, then it goes out again and then it comes in again.  Gave up today and I am keeping it indoors!! 
Here is this week's sketch from Let's Scrap.  I have picked photos of the boys and their Daddy in New Zealand.  They went to Mount Maunganui  in the Bay of Islands and visited the beach.  Corinne told me that the twins weren't very amused when their Daddy and Harrison went for a walk in the water and they got into a bit of a panic! Bless them! Oh how I wish I could be on that beach right now instead of suffering  all this rain!
 It was Greg's 30th Birthday on Thursday 5th April and we went out for a family meal to The Bothy in Perth.  We had a lovely meal and a lovely time and wee Jackson took part in pass the parcel with him as the parcel! LOL!!! Everybody wanted a wee cuddle.  

I had to share this photo of Marie with Jackson, as she moaned about having a Mummy Tummy and her hair was a mess and she had spots blah blah blah and then she walked in looking like this - stunning!!

 This is the card I made for Greg.  It uses car images called Wacky Wheels from Just Inklined.

 I made this a pop-up card and is the first one I have made like this.  I feel I could have done so much more with the card but because I am so tired at the moment I just couldn't get any ideas.

Marie, Willie, Jackson and I had a lovely afternoon in Alyth at my brother's house.  We met up with my niece Lesley and her husband Martin and their wee boy Olly and their baby Sophie who was born about 8 weeks before Jackson.  We wanted to get photos of the babies together, but it was so difficult to get them in a good mood at the same time!  Here are a couple which we managed to get.

 I like this one, it shows me and Marie and Jackson, and my sister-in-law Mary with Lesley and Sophie. 
They both look a bit dishevelled, but we didn't want to play around with them too much as they were both nice and quiet!
And finally................
My gorgeous wee boy in the suit which I knitted for him.  I could just eat him all up!  
Well I must go and get some cards made.  We have been asked to have a stall in May at a Coffee Morning, so need to get busy! Thanks for stopping and having a lookie!!
