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!

Let's Scrap 9-15-15

It's time for a new sketch at Let's Scrap, and my first on the Design Team again.
I was on the Design Team a couple of years ago, and it is so nice to be back.

 Here is the new sketch, and here is the link to the website so as you can enter if you wish.

Here is my layout for this sketch.  It shows Rob and the boys playing crazy golf. 
 Just look how happy Rob is, as he has had a hole in one!!  
Harrison still needs a bit of help from his Daddy, but loved it all the same.

All papers, stickers and lettering is by Echo Park
Wee golf man is by Smirk
Bunting is from a pound shop (hubby bought it for me)
I'm off to work on another layout for a commission.  Why don't you try to do a layout based on this sketch?  I would love to see it over on the blog!

Snow Pals

Time for a challenge card I think!

This is a card using a super cute image from Mo Manning called Snow Pals. 
 I went a bit overboard with the glitter, but there's nothing wrong 
with a bit of sparkle is there?
I used papers from my stash, the trees and the pine branch 
were cut using a Spellbinder die. Of course I had 
to put some glitter on them too!!!

I am entering this card in the following challenges

Crafting from the Heart  - Challenge #76 Anything Goes
Crafty Catz Weekly Challenge  #291 Anything Goes
Creative Craft Cottage  #47 Let's get Spotty
Allsorts Challenge #327 Lots of Layers

That's all for now, lots of things to be getting on with today,
 I need to make the most of it when I'm not on babysitting duties!!

Let's Scrap Design Team

Wonderful News!!!
I have been selected to be on the Design Team for Let's Scrap Sketches! Woo-Hoo!
We were given a sketch which we had to interpret in our way, you can see the sketch below.  So happy to be chosen, and my term will run from September2015  until February 2016.  
This is the 2nd time I have been on the Design Team, and I can't wait to get started with all the sketches, and to see what everyone makes with them.

This is the sketch we were given, and it can be found here
if you want to play along too.  Sketches are put up 
on the 1st and also 15th of every month.

This is the layout I made using just the left side of the sketch.

This shows wee Dylan, being a bit of a grumpy Santa. 
 I chose the title "Tis the Season to be Jolly" as I thought it was apt! 
He had decided he had had enough of dressing up as Santa, and he wanted the suit off!

Materials I used were all from Bo Bunny.

Please play along with us, it would be wonderful to see what you can make!
