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!

Now for my exciting news!!!!!
I entered the competition for Scrapbooker of the Year at Scrapbook Magazine.  I was so excited when I got an e-mail to say that I was a runner-up!!! Woo-hoo!!!!!!

We had to send in 3 layouts and this was the layout which they picked.  This shows my two daughters when we all met up together for the first time in many, many years.  Corinne lives in New Zealand, we are at the opposite side of the world  in Scotland, so it makes family reunions a bit difficult!!

 This is the amazing prize I won.  £180 worth of crafting goodies!!!!!!!  The photo does not really show it all  up very well, but I have scrapbook paper, rubber stamps, masks, flowers, twine, card-making kit, lettering, 2 albums, buttons and templates, to name just a few!!
I was not allowed to tell anyone until the magazine was published, so I am letting everyone know now!!! 

I tried to scan the magazine and put int on there, but for some reason it wouldn't work. Never mind.  I am so chuffed with myself and keep smiling when I think about it!  Here's to more success in 2013!!!!

Cutie Pie Challenge Blog

I hope you have all had a lovely Christmas.  We had a lovely time with Marie and baby Jackson, (who stole the show) and Greg and Kim, who told us that they are having a baby in June! Woo-hoo!  another baby to scrap and to knit for! LOL!!!!  I have managed to find some time to do some blogging, so without further ado........

The challenge at The Cutie Pie Challenge Blog is Cute Christmas. 
 I have used an image from Make It Crafty which I love.  It's just a simple card, as most of my cards this year were, as I had no extra time to make them fancy!! This image reminds me of myself, as I always feel and squish my parcels in an attempt to figure out what they are before I open them!!

I wanted to share this photo of Jackson, playing with the toy we gave him for Christmas.
                                                                I think we had more fun with it than he did!!

I'll be putting on another post in a wee while with my exciting news!!  At last I can share it with you!

Mo's Digital Challenge - #166 Fave Mo card made by You!

The challenge over at Mo's Digital Challenge is your favourite Mo's card which you have made. 
It is so hard to pick a favourite as I always find if I use an image by Mo, the card will turn out great!!  I have picked this card, as I did some stamping and used chalks to make a cloud effect.  it makes it just that little bit different I think!  I really like the way i have coloured the hair too, as hair colouring is not my strongest point!

I am also showing you this card, which I coloured monotone, with a splash of red.  First time I have tried this, and I really like it, so will be doing it again, that's for sure!

Okay, must go, almost bed time, and I have a busy day tomorrow.  Marie is getting wisdom teeth out and I have to be Nurse Nancy and look after her and wee Jackson, so I will have a busy day!

Bye for now, and thanks for stopping for a look!!

Inspiration of the Week at Let's Scrap

 I have been very bad of late and have not been blogging as much as I should have been.  I had to share this with you today though, as my layout has been picked as Inspiration of the Week on Let's Scrap!!! Woo-Hoo!! 

This layout was part of an album I have just completed for my friend Fiona.  She wanted it to give to Jayden's Mummy for her Christmas, and it shows Jaydens' first 5 years.

This is another layout I did based on another Let's Scrap sketch.   It shows Jayden setting off for his first day at school.  He looks so excited doesn't he?

I'll be back with another post really soon, as I have some exciting news to share with you all!!  Have fun everywhere and I hope the strain of Christmas isn't too much for you! LOL!!!
