Here with some new scrapping..............

........ Just a few things I've been up to since I was last here!

These two were both done using Crate paper Emma's Shoppe collection, I love the 'cute baby cheeks' one the best, I just love baby profiles & have done one of each of our grandbabies! I did the title with my Silhouette machine.

These three are of Henry when he was little - I'm trying to use up some of our older photo's before I move onto the newer ones! I used MME Stella Rose Hattie range for all of these pages!

Thanx for still stopping by to read my blog even though I don't post as often these days!
See you soon ..............

Back again...............

.... this time to show you a couple of layouts I did this past week or so using the new Crate Emma's Shoppe, one of my new favourites I can confirm!! love it!

this one was a total scraplift of Nichol Magouirk on twopeas, it was the 'from start to finish' challenge HERE My mojo had gone awol & I thought what better way to get it back than to try out something like this - I thoroughly enjoyed it too! I cut my title with my Silhouette.

After doing the first one I was on a roll & completed this in no time, I've got to start using my die cutting machine loads more though cos' it's gonna save loads on alphas! I also love the effect it gives plus you can cut whatever size you like!

right I'm in the middle of another page from the same papers ........... told you they were gorgeous!! LOL so I'll upload a pic thru the week!

March kit creations................

......... now that the kits have gone out I can show you what I did with all the fab stash within it!!!

I loved the kit & enjoyed playing with it! I know I say it almost every month but these kits just seem to get better, I loved all the bright colours & the chipboard this time.

While I'm here I thought I'd show you the class that claire created for the retreat a few weeks ago, this is my take on it, a tiny bit different but the layout is the same!

And a page I created at the retreat using the new MME paper collection Stella Rose, I used Tracy's Tim Holtz flower die for the flowers........ thanx hun!;)

See you again soon and thanx for popping in!

GOSH!! has been a long time since I posted!!!

Been busy scrapping & quilting for the grandbabies, so here's some pics!

These are two lap quilts I made recently for Olivia & Charlotte - a bit obvious I know!! The fabric used was Lilly & Will for Moda, gorgeous muted colours in real life!

For this layout I used some Basic Grey & a few older Prima flowers - trying to use up some old stash before CHA goddies come floding in!! haha!

and this one was created for the challenge over at Sarahs it was to show your 2010 highlights, mine were the arrivals of two beautiful grand daughters! I used Glitz Designs papers for this one!

And here is what I created with the January kit from Sarah's

Thats me for tonight, will definitely be back soon with some more updates! Thanx for stopping by!

Hope you had a wonderful crafty Christmas ..............

....... I did!!
We had Nat, Joe & Henry over for Xmas dinner & a stay til' Boxing day but poor Natalie was really poorly & still is so she didn't enjoy it at all! :(
Henry had tons of fun as did the rest of us playing with his toys! haha!

As it's been rather quiet over the holidays I've been busy scrapping & altering a printers tray that I've had for ages, here's some photo's of what I've been up to ..........

These first two were created with the lovely MME Alphabet soup, I love this range to bits & still have a bit more left for a couple more pages!

Theses two were done using the gorgeous Cosmo Cricket Circa 1934 - these are just my cup of tea, the colours are fab IRL and they do for either boy or girl which is always a bonus!!

I've also done this printers tray in CC Circa 1934, we're having our lounge decorated in the new year & I've decided I love the colours together & will go with this combination for it, so this will fit right in!

Right thats all for tonight, gonna play some more with the fab CC I think, thanx for popping in & please leave me some comments, it makes it all worth while & I love to read them & also link back to your place! :)

See you soon!

It's begining to look a lot like .........

......... Christmas in our house!!

Just a few random pics from around our house!

I've also been knitting & scrapping - knitted this a few weeks ago but only just got round to uploading here!

And some pages I've done lately ........................

for this one I used the fabulous MME Alphabet soup - love the colour combo's in this & I also had to do a bit of hand stitching, my new love for my pages!

Again using the above & some older stash I came across while cleaning my room last week! Clear accents by Fancy Pants & some brads!

MME Alphabet soup again but mixed with some spray mica mists by 'that special touch' which are available HERE they're brilliant and even tho I was a bit scraed of using them at first, it's another technique I've tried & really like!

Right thats me for today, off to have an early night!

Thanx for coming to see me & please leave a comment if you re-visit, i'd love to know what you think of my creations & my blog!
see you soon ..........
