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!

Harrison's Birthday Card


Here is the card I made for my Grandson Harrison's birthday.. 
It is so hard to believe that he is now 7 years old.  This image was perfect, as Harrison has started to lose his teeth, and this wee man has a wonderful gap in his teeth!

I used chalk to make the clouds and stamped 2 swallows in the sky.  It is coloured with promarkers.

Here is a photo of Harrison, having a rest during a game of crazy golf.

 I would  like to enter this into the challenge at Partytime Tuesdays. blogspot. 
where  Challenge #169 is Anything Goes
I also want to enter Challenge #228  Clean and Simple at Mo's digital challenge.

I am heading off to make more cards now.  Hubby's birthday tomorrow, so better get a move on!!

Amazing You

My goodness, the lovely sunny weather didn't last long!  Back to dreadful rain, and  it is sooooo heavy!  YUK!!!
It did mean however, that I had time to scrap, as I couldn't get out to work in the garden.

I love the fact that I now have a wee Granddaughter and I can scrap girlie pages.  She is absolutely beautiful and she is now cutting teeth.
These two photos show her at an art day.  They had to wear a wee suit to keep themselves clean. I love the way she still has her wee headband on!!

Right, it's dinner time.  Just me and Jackson tonight, so Pizza on the menu - yum!!  Hope to see you soon - take care for now!

Scrap 365 April 2014

I subscribed to Scrap 365 as soon as I heard it was coming out, so I have read every copy.  I have never entered any of my work to them, so today I decided to do that, and discovered the April Challenge was already closed!  Woopsie!!   Never mind, I will still show it on here, and will hopefully be on time next month!

 This is the sketch from them for April.

Here is my layout based on this sketch.

This photo shows my beautiful Grandson, Hadley.  He always takes such a good photo, and I knew I would scrap this one as soon as I saw it.  The title "Mischievous" is perfect for his cheeky wee face!!

Here is what I used
Papers - Echo Park
Title and words - Echo Park
Quote - 7 Gypsies
Spinner - K & Co
Playtime puffy sticker - Rayher
Buttons - from stash

I bought a wonderful pack of Bo Bunny Papers and Embellishments, so I am off to play with them - so exciting when you get new stash!!

Have fun until  I see you again!!

Scrapbook Magazine Issue 80

Issue 80 of Scrapbook Magazine is out now,and I have 2 layouts featured there.

The first one, is an invitation for you to Scraplift my layout, and here it is

Readers of the magazine are asked to Scraplift (copy) my layout and send them in for publication, so it will be really good to see what they do.  This shows Freya in 2 of her studio shots which were done when she was just a few weeks old. All papers and lettering were from My Mind's Eye, Ruby range.  Crystal swirl is from Prima.

This 2nd layout is for a feature on Weddings.  The photo shows my elder Sister Sheena and he husband Harry on their wedding day.  Sadly, Harry passed away recently,  so it was nice to do this layout in his memory. and it will go in my Family Scrapbook.
Materials used were
Cardstock - Best Creations Inc - Basic Glitter Paper
Velvet Ribbon - My Mind's Eye Lost & Found - Portobello Road Buddies Trim
Flowers - Wild Orchid Crafts
Pearls  - The Hobby House
Chipboard Title - Making Memories - Wedding
Everything else is from my stash. Hoping to get some crafting done tomorrow, so I may be back really soon!!
