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!

Absolutely Fabulous

It's taken a while, but I have managed to do another scrap layout.
 I'm  happy now, as big long holiday is over, (with heaps of photos to scrap) and also our visitors have now gone home, (even more photos!!) so I can now concentrate on my Scrapbook Layouts once again.

 I loved this design from Stuck Sketches and as soon as I saw it,
I knew what I was going to do with it. 

 When I saw all the flowers on the sketch, I just had to make a layout featuring Freya.  I turned the sketch on it's side, to make my photos fit better.

Once again, these photos are from her first photo shoot, when she was just 6 weeks old.  I love the top one where her wee legs are tucked under her wee bum!!

I used flowers and leaves from Craft Box  I have taken out a subscription for the monthly boxes, and when they arrive, and you open the box, it is so exciting, as you don't know what is inside!!

I adhered some chipboard buttons from the same range as the paper, and then placed white pearls on top of the buttons.

I also added this little cluster of chipboard and pearls in the bottom corner.  The little metal nest with pearls also came from a Craft Box.
Well, I think that is all from me at the moment, but I'll be back real soon, pinkie promise!
