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!

August Mouse

Oh my goodness, it is the 15th of the month already, and that means it is time 
to unveil my Facebook Elite Design Team image for Rick St Dennis

Just look at this wee mousie!!  She has packed her bags, 
and she is going somewhere wonderful I am sure!!
 I have made this into a Leaving Card, as I think it is perfect for that. 

This is such a cute wee image, and she was free,
 to anyone who entered last month's challenge on 
The Challenge runs in two parts. One month, the theme is "Anything Goes", and,
 if you enter that one, you get a free image to play with in the next month's challenge!! 
 Easy Peasy, and a brilliant way to get more of Rick's wonderful stamps!! 
 Plus if you win, you will get even more stamps!!

Two Years Old

 I have so many photos which I need to sort out and scrap, or put in albums. 
 I am old fashioned, as I still like to see a had copy of a photograph.
So, here is the recent sketch from Let's Scrap Sketch Blog and it is showing 
photographs of my Grandson Jackson.  They were taken on his 2nd Birthday. 
Told you I was way behind!  He is 3 now! lol!!

I just used the left hand side of the sketch, as I didn't have enough similar photos. 
 I have had these papers from Heidi Swapp for a long time now, so I was glad to use them.  
I also have a massive stash of brads, so I managed to use 9 of them here!!

It is almost time to pick up Jackson from the Nursery, so I'll go now,
 but thank you so uch for stopping here and please come back again!

 Here is my latest layout, using photos of Freya when she was about 1 year old. 
 I love the little dimples in her hands, and the wide open carefree chuckle!  
The best sound in the world is a young child laughing.  It is totally infectious.
The sketch is from Lets Scrap Sketches

I used these beautiful rosettes and flowers from Papermania. 
 They are part of the capsule collection. 
They matched the paper from Lost and Found perfectly. 
 I love when a layout comes together like this, it was no effort at all!

Here is a wee close up of the rosettes, and also the flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.  I added a wee pearl button to the centre of the flowers and also on the larger 
rosettes on top of the buttons which were already there. 

The "lovely" sentiment is also from Lost & Found.
It's lunchtime, and I have my wee lodger here for a sleepover
