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!

Allsorts Challenge #334 334 - Orange, Purple and  Black
Crafty Girlz Challenge #8 - Anything goes with a twist of bewitched

Rick St Dennis Airless Chambers, 31 days of Halloween Day 19

We are celebrating Halloween over 31 days on Airless Chambers Blogspot 
and today it is my turn to show you my project.

I have used the lovely, cute digital stamp called  Night Flight  
and you can see her below.

 I don't think anyone would really be frightened of this little witch, 
but appearances can be very deceptive!!
Why don't you go over to the Airless Chambers  and see all the other horrors on there?  
Perhaps you shouldn't do it alone though! LOL!!!!

I used the following for this card
Digital Stamp, Night Flight, available on Zibbett here
Background Digital Stamp - Free on the web
Coloured with Polychromo Pencils.

Rick St Dennis Progressive Challenge

Progressive Challenge Time over on Sparkle and Glitter Blog

The challenge is in 2 parts, first one is Anything Goes, and then the Second part is that you have to use an image which you receive from Rick absolutely free!!

Rick has so many amazing images available, you will be spoilt for choice.
  He sells on both Zibbett and Etsy 

The image shows, of course, the Beautiful Alice in Wonderland. 
 The background of the stamp is wonderful, with lots of detail for you to colour.   I used Spectrum Noir pencils for this, just getting to grips with them now.  I must confess I have been buying all sorts of pencils recently, must stop, as the drawer they are in is getting pretty full!

Thank you for stopping here, and I really hope you can leave a wee message for me.  It is nice to see who has been here. Bye for now and enjoy your day.

I'm, late, I'm late .......

I'm late, I'm late, for a very important date - so goes the song. 
 Today, I am late for 2 blog entries, both of them due on 15th!!
I have had major computer problems and I couldn't get my photos uploaded in order to upload them to blogs.

So, here is the first post I should have done.  
This is the sketch from Let's Scrap Sketches, for 15th October 2015. 
When I saw the sketch, I immediately knew which photos would be used!
Every year in Hamilton New Zealand, they have a  Balloon Festival down at the Lake.

Every year, Corinne takes photos and I am always amazed  at the
 vast array of balloons on show.
I would love to see this festival, hopefully some day I will!!
The materials I used are as follows:

Papers - Bo Bunny, Cosmo Cricket and Echo Park
Balloon stamps - Clarity Stamps
Lettering - Doodlebug
Borders - Bazzill

Okay, that is the first of my late dates, but I won't get the other one on here until tomorrow, so I'll be back then!  Bye for now and thanks for stopping for a wee look.

It's time for another sketch from Let's Scrap!  Here it is.

I really liked this sketch,and did this layout really quickly.
This shows Hadley as a 1 year old.  He was a right wee pudding, 
and he had the nickname Chubba.  
His twin brother Dylan was a lot smaller and he was called Dinky!!!

I used papers from K & Co - Hopscotch boy
Title used Thickers letters 
Animal Stickers are from Sandylion.
This layout was good as it used up little strips of paper.  
I keep every little bit you see! You never know when you will need them!

That's all for now, but thank you for coming by.  
Please leave a comment, to let me know you were here.
