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!

Baby Girl Card

 This is a card I  made using a beautiful wee digital stamp from Wee Stamps.  I think this is such a beautiful image and I saw it on a card on Pinterest, and I just had to track it down!!  I was so happy when I found it and I made this card straight away.

I used the following to make the card

Papers from My Mind's Eye - Lost & Found Collection
Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts
Martha Stewart Hearts punch
Spellbinders Die for leaves
Magnolia Doo-Hickey Swirl
Pearls from stash

I have just discovered a site called The Paper Shelter and their stamps are amazing!  You don't just get a digital stamp, you get backing papers, and a coloured image as well for inspiration!!  I have bought some stamps, and I am off to colour them now! They are having a Design Team Call so I have decided to apply. I've managed to be on 2 design teams for my Scrapbooking, and I would love to be on a Design Team for cards too. Fingers crossed, but I know they will have lots and lots of applicants.  

I'm off to do some colouring now!  I'll be back soon!  Thanks for stopping for a visit!

Love U Elmo!

 This layout was based on the sketch below from Let's Scrap. 7-6-11  Hadley loves his cuddly toys and especially Elmo.  He used to fight with Dylan his twin brother as they both wanted him, so when I went over for a visit I took another Elmo with me.  Dylan no longer seems to want Elmo, so wee Hadley just cuddles them both!  They even sit and watch t.v. together!  I used T.P.C. Studio, Transportation papers and brtads and the ELmo Stickers were form Jolee's boutique.

 This layout is based on another Let's Scrap sketch No 7-13-11  This shows Dylan using his toys in an alternative way!  He is such a cheeky wee thing and these photos just show him at his best!!  I used 3 bugs in a rug, Snips n Snails paper and stickers and the buttons (lots of them and I don't know why!)  were from my stash.

Scooter Magnolia and Meeting Thomas

I am sharing this  Magnolia Card with you, which I have just finished.  I used My Mind's Eye Papers called Sunshine.  The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the bow is made with  ribbon from Bazzill.

I am entering this card in a challenge

Tilda's Town Challenge which is  "Anything Goes"

We went to Brechin last weekend, and Jackson got to see Thomas the Tank Engine and we had a ride on him. It was so  so busy!  Lots of little kiddies with their parents, all trying to get photos with Thomas.  I am sharing a couple with you.
