Special Birthday Album

Here are some quick photos of an mini album I made for my Mum's Birthday.  I used the Making Memories Paper Reverie Antique Brun collection and a lot of Pinecone ink.  This has been a fun project.  Mum I hope you like it.

Pocket albums are a lot of fun.  Each of the tags have been stamped, inked and a photo added.  There is space on the back of each photo tag for journaling and for inspirational sayings.

September Scrap Pack

This pack was ohh so pretty!!! The papers were from the Cosmo Cricket Earth Love range and I really enjoyed working with it!

I found the papers really versatile to a range of different photos.

And they were really cute too!!

For instructions on how I made all these check out the September Newsletter over at Better Scrapbooking, also check out what the other fabulous Design Team member, Jennie, has created too!

Happy Scrapping everyone!

Box of Yummy s from USA

I took my girls to school as usual this morning.  Then when I arrived home, sitting by my workshop door was a lovely box.  I recognised straight away that is was from my darling pen-pal and his darling wife.  I had spoken to them earlier in the month about picking up some Hershey's Nuggets for me so I could do some of those cool projects from You Tube.  My pen-pal's wife Katie said, "Sure no problem".  So I kinda knew what was in the box, but ... I did not realize she had added something else as well.  A huge container or Jelly beans - the gourmet type.  Oh boy, please don't tell my Zumba instructors (thank goodness they are in Miami at the moment).

Anyway I just had to take a photo and share it with you.  I did not realise how big the bag of Hershey's Nuggets was going to be, Phew 1.5kg.  I think I will be having fun making little gifts and treats.  Might have to try one or two of them though - oh feeling the need to run and do Zumba all at the same time LOL!

Have a great creative weekend everyone

Happy Scrappin'

Dry Spell

I have had such a dry spell lately when it comes to my scrapbooking, hence the lack of blogging.  I have been very busy choosing and ordering product fro ScrapPacks, ordering new products and updating the website as well as concentrating on all the newsletters.  Scrapbooking has taken a real back seat - sigh.
Yesterday I decided, that was it, time to do a couple of layouts.  One fore me and a double-page layout for a class I am having tonight.  Both have come together very well.  It was just so nice to have some time to be creative.  I really need to do this more.
I would like to share the two layouts I did.  Here is the page I have done for myself.  It is on my sister-in-laws dog who sadly passed away just the other month.  He will be missed.  Now, as you can see all I need to add is the journaling.
Here is the other layout which we will be creating in class tonight.  It really is a fun double-page layout.
