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!

Last post of the year

My goodness, 31st of December already.  Where has this year gone?  we are in the midst of terrible weather at the moment.  I can't remember a day now when it didn't rain.  It's a bit depressing to be honest.  Hopefully the New Year will bring better weather.
It is time once more for the challenge at Let's Scrap Blogspot

Here is the sketch you need to use.

Here is my layout based on the sketch

I took these photos on  Easter Sunday this year.  We all painted an egg, and Jackson even painted the egg box.  We had a lovely day, and the sun even shone for us!!

Well, that's it for 2015.  Hopefully 2016 will be a better year for me health wise, but I will just have to wait and see.  New year Resolutions? yes, 
1. Lose weight
2. Take part in more challenges
3.  Get my work printed in more magazines
4. Get onto more Design Teams
 Thank you for following my blog, and I hope you continue to drop by during 2016.

Ibiza Sunset - Let's Scrap 15.12.15

This is my second post of the day and it is for Let's Scrap

As usual we had a sketch to work from so here it is....

 I just did a one page layout, and it shows us on holiday in Ibiza when we watched a beautiful sunset. 

We were told that this would be one of the best sunsets in the world and it was stunning.  A speedboat and a water skier went past and they were silhouetted beautifully against the setting sun. Unfortunately, our photo isn't very good, it is very dark, but I have lightened it here below so as you can see us! LOL!!!

We spent a lovely week in Ibiza in September 2006.  I would go back again, as I took lots of photos of the old town, but I lost them all when my computer crashed.  I only have this photo and a couple of others.  So disappointed as I lost so many photos!  Never mind,I have lots more to look at from other holidays!! 
Well, now I am going to tidy up my Craft room,.  It is in such a state!!  I'm trying to get a bit more organised, and I have put up another shelf which is great as it holds all my ink pads and they are to hand now instead of being hidden away in a box. 
Wish me luck...... I may be some time!! LOL!!!

Sparkle and Glitter Blog Progressive Challenge 15.12.15

Hello from a rainy dreich St. Madoes.  Oh this weather is getting me down!!  Never mind, it just means I can stay in and craft more!  Every cloud.......

Now, it is 15th December, so that means I will be doing 2 posts.  
First post is for Rick St Dennis Sparkle and Glitter Blog

We have been celebrating Creepmas, as in my previous post.  We were given a free image which we had to colour, so here he is.

He is a funny wee guy isn't he?  Poor wee man doesn't know if he is coming or going!!  Christmas.... Halloween.... what is it? LOL!!!

I made him stand in front of a Christmas Tree, and added a red bow and a red Poinsettia and he was done.

If you go over to  The Sparkle and Glitter Blog 
you can see what the rest of the Design Team have done with this wee image!
Post 1 is done, now I need to do Post 2!   Back soon!!!

Creepmas on Airless Chambers

Hello and welcome.  Weather is terrible here today, 
so I am glad I am sitting in my house where it is all nice and cosy!
So, without further ado........ Welcome to the 12 days of Creepmas!
What is that you ask?  It is a bit of a dig at shops 
who put Christmas Decorations out when they still have Halloween items 
on their shelves.

So, I would like to introduce you to Creepmas Shopper. 
 She has her carrier bags overflowing with lots of weird and wonderful things!!  
I just love the wee box with legs beside her, 
look at that wee face! LOL!!

 She is a wonderful creation by Rick St Dennis, and you can find her here

on Zibbett .... Creepmas Shopper

If you would like to see more Creepmas designs by Rick, head on over to

Nothing more to do except wish you a Merry Creepmas! lol!!

Let's Scrap DT 1st December 15

Hello and welcome to my little corner of the world.  this little corner is a wee bit snowy.  Jumper on, thick socks on and heating on!!!
It's that time again, showing the first DT layout for the month of December.  My goodness last month of the year.  It has passed in a flash!

Here is the sketch for this challenge

It gave me the chance to use a lot of photos on the one layout.  I have photos of Freya throughout her first year and they are the ones I have used .  It's amazing to see how she has grown.  The brilliant thing about having Grandchildren, is that you appreciate them much more than your own kids,because this time round, you now how quickly they grow up.  

I love being able to do girly layouts now, it is a real treat!  
I'm away todomore Christmas Cards now.  I have so much stuff to use up and I am determined to make a dent in it!  Wish me luck!! LOL!!
Why don't you head over to the Let's Scrap Blogspot  to see what the other members of the Design Team have done with this sketch?
Bye for now, and stay warm!!
