In starting this blog, my aim is to have a place to share my scrapbooking, card making, paintings and photos with friends and rellies. Hopefully it will inspire me to produce more....LOL. Welcome!

A December last!!

I bought Ali Edwards 6x8 December Daily templates and have been taking photos during the month (though not every day.) I bought the templates earlier in the month but have been busy and this is my first page. My DD Debbie came home yesterday for Christmas. She is 41 and has autism. Her birthday is Dec 6 and each year as soon as her birthday and Christmas are over she starts talking about the next birthday and Christmas! December is a very important month in this family!

Kraft It Up December challenge

I couldn't resist the challenge on this month and have managed to finish in spite of being so busy and quickly running out of time LOL. It was such fun to do.

This month your challenge is to scrap a CHRISTMAS PHOTO using NON TRADITIONAL COLOURS and you also need to incorporate KNOTS on your layout, whether it is with ribbon, fabric, twine, lace etc...

My knots are in the cord I have threaded through the buttons.

the challenge at this week was to recycle newspaper or pages from an old book. I used an old book and stamped and inked a page to make the photo mat and a flower.This challenge really appealed to me and I am pleased with my layout of my 3 beautiful great nieces. I have used one of my fave Kaisercraft papers.

Scrapping again!

I am surprised that this LO finally saw the light of day! I had run out of ink......because I haven't scrapped for so long.....I cut some of the paper the wrong size and had no more so I had to patch it......the 2 cardstock sheets are different colours.....the photos on the right hand side were supposed to be a block of four not two.......but they printed out too big for some reason. However....I am happy enough because I have started scrapping again......

a beginning

My first blog entry......this blog will be mostly for my scrapbooking pages [provided I can get off my bum and actually start scrapping again LOL].... and perhaps photos of my paintings.

This is my fist effort for a month or so, a birthday card for my DH. I made it for a challenge  on Let's Scrap
