I'm back..........

Well it has been way too long since my last post and rather than bombard you with all my creations from over the past few months, I will spread them out over the next few weeks.

Firstly I participated in a card challenge over at Deb's Creations. This challenge was set by Vicki Bailey with the requirements being: Magnolia image, the colour blue and flowers. How easy is that. If you love a challenge pop on over here and have a go. You have until end of January to get your entries in.

Next up is another card made using the gorgeous Popcorn Bear stamps. As soon as I seen these stamps I knew I just had to have them....
Okay I will leave it at that today and promise to be back soon with some more creations.

layouts to share

Okay so I got withdrawals from not creating any layouts for a while so this week I have well and truly made up for it.

This layout is of my son - every time we ask him how does a monster go - he replies "raaaagh". Too cute....

Next one is of my eldest daughter focusing on her new pairs of shoes. It seems every time we goes shopping she needs a new pair - one time it's boots, the next sneakers, thongs - I guess shoes are just her thing - like scrapping is mine!!!
On the 14th September my son turned 3 - can't believe he isn't a baby anymore. This layout is of him soaking up birthday kisses from his sister.
This boy definately is "one a a kind". He never fails to come up with something that has me in stitches. Here he is wearing his dads safety glasses.

Like all boys, Jordan just loves to play in mud. He would play in it all day if I let him!!!

Lastly is one of my daughter Rachel, looking lovely in her pink dress. The vine on the layout is handmade by myself and I am rapt as to how it turned out.

Will try and post more often rather than boring you in one looooong post.

Til next time


Penny Black addiction

Well I have never really been into making cards until lately when I come across the gorgeous Penny Black stamps. I can now say that I am addicted and can't get enough of them. The other bonus is that card making uses up all my scraps from scrapbooking - so I figure the two seem to go hand in hand!!!

Scrapbook Boutique has a great range of Penny Black stamps so be sure to check them out here

Below are a couple of my most recent cards.
Thanks for looking and be sure to pop back soon - promise I will update more often!!!

Sketch challenge

If you love a good sketch challenge pop on over to http://www.thescrappinkats.com.au/ Every month there are three sketches put up with generous prizes.

My entry for sketch #2 is shown below.

Not much else has been happening. Raining again today so making the most of it and doing some scrapping.

May be back again later with some more layouts.

Very first blog post

Wahooo - my first ever blog post. I have finally decided to join the world of blogging. I love looking at other people's blogs and being inspired by what I see, so I am hoping that my blog will do the same for others.

First off is my layout created for the June sketch comp. over at Sweeties Sketches http://sweetiessketches.blogspot.com/. I am loving the sketches Shell is coming up with and was quite happy with how this one turned out.

Next is a layout of my DD which I entered into the May comp. over at Songbird Scraps http://http//songbirdscraps.blogspot.com/

Well that's about it for now. It is raining here today so will make the most of it and do some scrapping.

Thanks for stopping by.
