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!

1929 Hat

Good Morning! 
 I hope the sun is shining where you are, as it has lost it's way to Scotland again! 
 Never mind, it is not too cold and that makes a difference.
Now, it is time to show you my Facebook Elite Design Team 
inspiration on the Rick St Dennis Facebook page.

This is 1929 Hat by Rick, and she can be found here  1929 Hat
I would love to be able to wear hats, but I just look ridiculous in them.  I just don't have the face for it! LOL!! This lady, however, is beautiful.    I coloured her hat in my favourite colour, blue, and added a couple of purple feathers, along with the blue.  I tried a wee bit of sponging with pan pastels for the purple/pink background as a contrast.  I added the flowers, but they are not an exact match unfortunately. I added the little pearls to her hat and stole to finish.
I hope you like my bit of inspiration, and you hop on over
 to Zibbett, or Etsy to see some more of Rick's lovely images.

I would like to put this card in the following challenges.

Hello Everyone!  Happy April Fools' Day! Did anyone catch you out?  My husband manages to trick me every year, but this year I was ready for him!!  Poor thing looked quite sad when I rumbled his trick!  Bless him. 

It's a horrible day here, what we call 'Dreich'  in Scotland.  The word sums the day up perfectly.  Cold, grey and wet.

Never mind, it means more crafting can get done.  

Here is the sketch from Let's Scrap for 1st April

I just used the right hand side of the sketch for this one, and this is what I came up with.

I used more photos which were taken by Ruth Trotter, on the day we took Jackson to the bluebell woods.  Of course, Mum Ted had to come too.  I adore these photos of Jackson and his very best pal in the whole wide world!  I suppose we can tease him with these photos when he is older. LOL!!

I used the following craft supplies:-

Cardstock - Bazzill Basics
Papers - My Little Yellow Bicycle
Borders - K & Co.
Title - K & Co.

That's all for now, I am going to make some cards before my babysitting duties start again.

Take care and hope you can leave some love, it would make my day xxx
