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!

Monday, 15 August 2016


Hello again!  It is a gloriously sunny day here in Perthshire,
so I have been out in the garden. 
 I have  an ongoing battle with the weeds, and they
 seem to be winning! LOL!!

So - what is the date?  Ah yes! it is 15th August,
time for the new Let's Scrap sketch.

I must admit when I looked at this sketch, I thought
 "What am I going to do with this?"
After considerable thought, and trawling through
numerous boxes of photographs, 
this is what I came up with.

I found these gorgeous photos of wee Jessie, the Wilson's new baby!! LOL!! 
I adore these photos of Dylan with her, just look at his wee face, he is loving her being there!  
She has grown a bit now, and popped up to see me when we were last Skyping! 
I hope this gives you some inspiration, and you try to do a layout based on the sketch.

Have fun, and see you soon

Freya 1st Girl Let's Scrap 8-15-16

Hello and welcome.  It's the middle of the school holidays here in Scotland, and the weather has not always been kind to us!  (No surprise there!)  My big news - I've lost 1 stone!!!!  Yes, 14 whole pounds have disappeared off my body.  Still trying to figure out where I have lost it from, but hey ho I'm happy!  Now have another stone to lose to get to the weight I want to be.  Doing it slowly, 1lb a week, and it is working.  I'm a happy bunny!

Here is the sketch for Let's Scrap for 1st August

 and here is my layout.  Freya 1st Girl

Freya is our first Granddaughter, and we are delighted to have her in our family, especially as we have 4 Wonderful Grandsons..  I love doing her layouts, as I can go all sparkly and flowery and pretty! LOL!!  This layout shows some of her professional photos which were done when she was really tiny. I crocheted the little Minny Mouse outfit she is wearing in that photo.  

 Here is a wee close-up showing some of the details on the layout

 I found a box of letters, which I had forgotten were there, and they were the same Brand and design as the papers , which I have had forever!

The wee flowers are from Prima, and they are really sparkly, but you can't see it in the photos.

here is the list of items used.

Cardstock and lettering - Bloom and Grow from  My Mind's Eye
Flowers - Prima
Ribbons, Buttons and Gems - from stash

Please leave some love, I like to see and ready your comments, no matter how short. xx
