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!

Off We Go!

 This is the sketch at Let's Scrap and I have only used the right hand side on this occasion.  
The photos show Hadley and Dylan on their first day at Kindy.  I don't know what they have in their backpacks, but they look like they are going for a week instead of a day!!

I have used 
Papers from Pink Paislee - Vintage Moon
House, Cloud chipboard - Collage Press - Hometown Summer
Spinner and chipboard arrow - K & Co. - Urban Rhapsody
Lettering - American Crafts - Thickers

I have had such a busy week, as we are looking after our wee Grand dog, Buddy as Greg and Kim are away on holiday.  He is keeping us on our toes, and he is being spoilt rotten as usual!!  I've also been looking after wee Jackson, while his Mummy goes out to work for a couple of hours a night, and also when his Mummy and Daddy went to a wedding on Saturday night!  It has been a really quick week, but it has been lots of fun!!

I have to share these pictures of my little men - firstly, Harrison,  Hadley, Harrison and Dylan looking really handsome 

and then Jackson, looking really cute!!!

I love my wee Grandsons, and who can blame me?
Take care till the next time!!

Just Inklined Cards

 I have been busy card-making.  I have so many images which have been printed out, or stamped, and I have never got round to colouring them.  I have a plastic shoebox full of them!!  I have made it my mission, to get them coloured, and then to get them onto cards!!  The card above is a lovely birthday image I think, as cupcakes are really popular now instead of a big birthday cake.  I used Dovecraft Teahouse papers, and metal corners from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The ribbon is from my stash.  As usual, the image is coloured with Promarkers.

I am going to say a couple of swear words - MEN'S CARDS lol!!!  
We all dislike making them don't we?  I think this image is fab, as, even if your man doesn't actually read, (like my hubby) he is bound to have some books of some description tucked away in a corner someplace!!
both these images are from The Next Big Think CD from JustInklined and it is packed with lots and lots of images of every kind imaginable!!  It can be bought here from  La Pashe where it is on special offer at the moment!

Let's Scrap Challenge

This is the layout I have made using the weekly sketch from Let's Scrap.  I must admit, I looked at this sketch and thought - "oh my, what can I do!!"  with a little thought and a rummage through my  massive photo collection, I selected the photos above which show Harrison going off to school for the first time.  Considering all the problems he had when he was born, it was an amazing day and made even better by the fact that he LOVES school!!  He gets all excited when he sees the bus coming for him in the morning!  He is doing really well, and at his first meeting with teachers, they were singing his praises which is such a relief to his Mummy and Daddy.

I used Cor'edinations Cardstock which I sanded over an embossing folder to make it a bit "messy" and the papers and stickers are from Echo Park, Hello Summer range. The ribbons are from Fancy Pants, About A Boy range.

Well, I am a busy Granny today, I have the "Granddog" Buddy at the moment, and he is staying with us for a week as Greg and Kim are off on holiday, and I am also looking after wee Jackson at teatime, to let his Mummy get out to work for a few hours.  No complaints at all though, I am LOVING it!!!!

Well, must go, time is precious at the moment! LOL!!!  thank you for stopping for a wee look and come back soon, won't you?
