I Love Me.......

...some Crate Paper 'Toybox' was definately on my fav's list from last CHA so I still had a quiet a bit left of it in my stash so I pulled it out again and had a play. I love this photo of my boys, I would love to know what the joke was......

Whats So Funny?

A Stuck Sketch...........

I haven't played along at Stuck Sketches for sooo long, so I decided to jump back on the wagon and have a go!
This page is from the August 15 th sketch- I flipped the sketch to suit my photo...... I'm really happy with how this page turned out.... besides the fact I have noticed now that the bottle top has slipped down the page slightly.... must fix that!...........


So if you are looking for some inspiration head on over to Stuck?! and be inspired by the DT.

TFL and be sure to leave some love and I will be sure to visit you.

Til next time!

1. Paint
2.Include the colour red
3.Include some fussy cutting
4. Handmade flower
5. Use a decorative strip

And here is my page....

Wendy's sketch at Anna's

I haven't scrapped at all this weekend and Matt and I had a weekend in Newcastle which was divine. Lots of R and R which was just what the doctor ordered!

I haven't shared this page yet, which is for the current sketch over at Anna's Craft Cupboard. I used a Crafter's Workshop template for the background and some Victoria Garden's Echo Park.....

Love You Always

I'm starting to get a bit antsy after not playing with paper for a few days so I will hopefully have more to share soon! Make sure you let me know that you visited so that I can return the love!

Guest Designer at Scrapbooking from Scratch

I love the Authentique Blissful Kit that Peta sent for my position as GD this month. The colours and quality of the paper is just delightful! You can purchase one from the shop here if you would like one!

I have completed 2 more layouts with this kit....

My Happy Place

And I love this pic of the baby cub we saw on our holiday to Thailand..


Til next time!

A Step by Step over at Scrapbooking from Scratch

When Peta asked me to be her guest designer for August and September, I jumped at the chance. She puts together some amazing kits and this month I got the pleasure of having a play with the Authentique "Blissful" range, teamed up with some embellies from 'A lil Somethin'.

Last night I completed my 1st page which included some Step by Step instructions which you can find over on the forum here. and if you would like to purchase this kit then head on over to here

And if you decide to play along this is what your page should hopefully look like:

Best Friends Always

So why not give it a go? I will be back soon to share some more pages with this gorgeous kit!
