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!

Hello and welcome to my little happy corner!  It is time to unveil the new sketch at Let's Scrap, and to announce some happy news from the recent Bloghop!!

I love using circles on my layouts, so  I really liked this sketch.  I have been tidying up my craft room, and I have found stuff which I forgot I had (sound familiar to anyone?) I found a spinner from Cosmo Cricket, and I thought it fitted in great with the photos I wanted to use. 

Here is my layout.  I only used the right  side of the sketch.

Mu daughter and her husband have been doing some work in their garden, installing a pizza oven and a seating area.  Hadley and Dylan, were obviously trying to help!

 I found these little metal corners and a grommet.  Such fun hammering that into place! lol!!

I also found some little tools.  Not quite the same tools as the boys are using, but I decided to use them anyway.

I had to use the Mr Strong embellishment to show how strong Dylan was!
I loved making this layout, and finding all the little bits to make it complete.

Now, onto the good news from the Blog Hop!  The winner of my RAK is.........................Alma Carter  Alma, and thank you for becoming my newest follower!  Please get in touch with me on my e-mail and I will get your prize posted on to you.
Thank you for everyone who entered the blog hop, it was a lot of fun!

3rd Birthday

Hello everyone. Well, unfortunately, it is raining here again! 
 There was a cloudburst last night, and it was incredible!  All the neighbours were up at their windows like us, just looking at the rain bouncing off the pavement and road.  
Aye, we Scots can still amuse ourselves in the rain! lol!!

We celebrated Freya's 3rd Birthday last week, and this is the card I made for her.

This is an image from Lili of the Valley, and is one of their pre-printed cards.  I used an 8" x 8" scalloped white card, and covered with lilac floral paper. I glued round the edge of the image card and dipped it in some purple glitter.  I also put on the number 3 which is a peel off.

 I added a strip of lace, a glitter rosette and 3 spiral flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.

 I stamped the sentiment with Warm Violet Chalk Ink, and used a corner punch to give extra detail.

This is a die which I think is from Tonic.  I love the effect it has.

I'm trying a mixed media project today, first time I have attempted this.  Once it is finished I will do a post on here to show it off, be it good or bad! lol!!

Bye for now, have a good Sunday everyone! xx 

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

Here is the sketch we had to use 

I think I spend more time looking for the photos for my layouts, than actually making the layouts!  I have thousands of photos, some in  albums, others just in boxes, so making a decision can be hard.

I found the ones I wanted, and here is my layout

Marie and Jackson, posing for the camera, and then getting silly!

 I found these wee robots in my stash and added them to the layout, putting the 2nd one upside down, just like Jackson!

 I even managed to find papers which were similar to Jackson's shirt, 
so the layout came together quite easily.

Now, the next blog you need to visit is
Have fun with the rest of the hop!!!
