DaYs GoNe By

Well, this one has been laying on my desk for some time now, and I thought I'd better add some writing and take the pic. 
Unfortunately the photo didn't come out too good, don't know why, guess it's the time of day or something.... I should get someone to give me a few photography tips....

Anyway, I thought I didn't like to make romantic pages, I may just change my mind....

Thanks for checking my blog out!!!  Hope you visit again soon!!!  Have a great week everyone!!!

MoRe ScRaPpInG...

Let's try again, this internet connection is soooooo slow today, I'm gonna try download some more layout's that I have done in the last couple of weeks....  Hold thumbs!

This is very similar to the green one I did the other day, a few posts ago, I just haven't found the right photo for it yet, but wanted to try another colour scheme.

This one is just not as good on the photo as it is in real life, it sparkles and shines like crazy,  was so much fun to play with buttons, beads and glitter.  I still have glitter floating all around in this work room of mine, and in the car.....  Sonja, those is your pink tootsies!!!!




And this one, I still have to catch someone sleeping for the photo, I'm sure it will be comming sooonnnnn - since we allllll looooooove sleep in this house!  It does need a pic of a little sweet girl snoozing though...  but one of my boys will have to do...


Thanks guys for checking out my blog!  Hope you all have a great weekend!!!

Howdy doodey all you scrappers!
Aren't we a craZy bunch??!!??

Well, I have made some fun layout's these past two weeks, and finaly got the energy to pick up the camera and take pics for you gals to see...... 

This first one is my last post's layout - with some photo's now.... and a heading....  think it looks finished now?  I love the 2 which is an upside down 5, and it's us 2, with a total of 5 memebers in our family - my hubby, my 3 sons, and me.....  cute hey!  I thought it's a cute idea.....

Anyway, here it is, and a few others I did since I last posted....


Now, this next one is from Kaisercraft range, I just loved this paper when it came out, bought it right away, and it's been sitting in my stash for ages... Finaly I decided I just have to use it, and the end result was disapointing, it was just so flat, I had added sparkles and inking, everything I could, then I picked up my white pen, and wow!  Just a little bit of white adds soooooooooo much pOp!!!
I don't have a photo that can do it justice, so I have just put in a picture from a calendar I have laying around - thus the flower in her hair, there's a hole there to hang the calendar on the wall....  oops, anyway, I think she goes perfectly, at least untill I have a replacement photo of a family member!!!



This one is such a simple layout, I showed the ladies at our scrapping group on Thursday this week, and everyone's layout looks so very different, with such unbelievable ideas!  Hey girls, post your layout's here too so we can see them all - Deb, Elaine, Bev, Helen, and the other two gals.....  (I'm hopeless with names - sorry!!!......). 
Oh ya, I found these flowers somewhere on a webpage, can't remember where, but anyway, tried them, and was amazed how easy they were to make, I showed the girls on Thursday too how to make them, and everyone was instantly hooked!!!!!   I used up all my scrap paper on Wednesday evening, punched out the scolloped circles, stapeled the layers together and paid my son 20c each to scrunch and make blooms - with some nagging and begging........  He ended up making 107 of them, and that was just one evening!!!  They are gorgeous Ethan, thanks my lovie!!! Sorry about the finger cramps and the tender tips.... ("-) I will be making layout after layout using these blooms - they are beautiful flowers, I think they look like little carnations....


Once again I used a picture from the calendar just till I have a lovely replacement photo..... I don't have any daughters, so will have to wait for grandaughters.... 


Here's another idea with this layout, also a calendar pic, but so cute! 


Hope you found something you could use.....  Till next time!!!  Scrap your heart out & have fun!!!

ThIs mAy Be My BeSt PaGe YeT...

Did some scrapping over the weekend, but I think I've fallen in love with making my own flowers...

This page came out quite well, it was inspired by the cover of Australian Scrapbooking Memoreis, Vol 12, No 8.

The 2 paterned papers I used is from K&Company - ancestry.com's designer paper pad, and one green  cardstock, the leaves and tag were made from scrap cardstock and some old rub-on I have lying around, without it's packaging.  some sewing and some inking and distressing..... so simple!  Oh, and three little pins from heidigrace and a piece of ribbon.  Some sewing around the edge too.














This one is inspired by a page I found on the web.  I fell in love with it the minute I saw it, and decided to try do one of my own.  I found that the little rolls of paper were a bit difficult to keep stuck down.  First I just put them on with double sided tape, not a good stick, so I applied some sticky dots, I think that did the trick, but just to make sure, I also put a few blobs of liquid glass from ctmh, called glossy accents here in Oz, and now, I'm sure they're not going anywhere.     I used 3 pages from Kaisercraft, white cardstock, some lace, plastic flowers I bought ages ago, but don't know what brand.....  kaisercraft pearls, homemade gold glimmer mist, inking again, my favourite thing to do, white flowers and a little piece of cardboard box...  oh, and almost forgot again, two little heidigrace pins.
If it were a painting, I'd call it - Life is good.





And last one for this post.....
I was inspired by Debbie Johnston's page she did....... Thanks Debs!!! 
This is such feminine paper, so pretty. 
It's just a pack of paper I bought from BigW ages ago in Perth, packaging gone again, papers sorted and stored in my paper storage tower......... so don't know what the brand is...... - help Deb?.....
A piece of cardstock for the bottom layer, distressing, inking, double sided foam blocks to add dimension, and that's it......  lots of cutting....  oh, and a string of pearls from kaisercraft...... rub on from my stash...

aNoThEr TwO tO aDd To mY cOlLeCtIoN

So, here's another two pages that's going on e-bay...
The first is the one I started at make'ntake, finished at home last night. 
I didn't know where to place the heading, wanted something different, so I came up with this idea to make a banner type heading, glued the letters to a ribbon with that liquid glass stuff from ctmh, and voila!  I quite like the outcome, even if I say so myself...... I haven't stuck the letters down, so I keep on picking the page up and jiggle it around to see how the letters hang freely. (I know Bron always finds herself talking to herself.... but am I taking "crazy" to the next level by playing with my sb pages???)  {Anyone else play with their sb pages???}


some embossing yo add texture.....  LOVE TEXTURE!!!



Apple of my eye, started this on Thursday, finished it yesterday too.  Think I'll make some more of these, a few a little different.  Hopefully they'll sell.......
Hey guys, need some prayer for some e-bay sales please...............


Well, another week's on it's way.....  Have a great one everyone!!!!
