Bonjour et bienvenue!

Bounjour et bienvenue -Hello and welcome!

SO that's it from me.....the best of the French that I can remember from....SSHhhh, 30 long years ago. I was always the disruptive wild child at school and spent most of the class standing outside the door. Now I spend alot of time picking up my disruptive son from the principles front door - Oh well like mother, like son!

I did learn a valuable lesson today though - how to add a followers list to my blog...... hooray a new achievment! So if you like my blog let me know by becoming a follower.

It's school holidays again - that dreaded time when the kids are bored and have a 5 min question span for mum. I managed to get this done last week and have resorted to Harry Potter movies to distract one, Craft for another and roll-up sugar fixes for the youngest just so I can do a blog post.

Sweet - Doux!

Inroducing the new Kaiser Bonjour Collection. Very French!

I have teamed it with Twiddleybitz Eiffel Tower & Itty bitty Alpha .The new Prima Pixie Glen flowers colours are also a perfect colour match.

Time out is over, far too many mum questions are lined up awaiting answers!

Re-NEW and Re -DO!!!!!!

Hello, today I decided to take a look at all the old layouts I scrapped (and hated by the way) and thought it's time to Re-DO these and make them worthy of a place in my album. Wow! I didn't realize just how bad I had scrapped them all so many years ago.

Blessings of Joy!

Twiddleybitz have this fantastic New product called -Rusting Powder'.
It goes onto your chipboard like embossing powder and then you spray with vinegar, leave it overnight and it comes alive with the look and feel of Rust! It looks amazing on the Twiddleybitz oval frame and Grape vine corner.

Adding a little K & Co and Prima to any layout always makes me smile too!

A couple of new favourites!

Hi there, it's not often that I feel I hit the nail on the head -get it right! when I create but with these two layouts that's what I think 'They really are perfectly both me'. I love all things with texture and dimension.

Wonderland Tea.

The background is Petalloo -Color me Crazy fabric ribbon which I have hand sewn together.
The gates and leaves are Twiddleybitz - covered in Tim Holtz crackle paint and inks. The flowers are Prima and the Title is from Crafty Secrets.

Blinding Beauty

The background paper is Kaiser and the overlay has been hand cut from a Creative Imaginations paper. Yes! I'm often called insane when I spend so many hours fussy cutting, but it's a relaxing therapy when you have 3 full on young children.
Title, trinkets and flowers are Prima, Pink Paislee butterflies, Green Tara stems and banners are Glitz design.
A whole lot of amazing products I love to use!

TY! for dropping by!

It's harder to scrap boys!

Hi, It's the 12th September.......... I think so many people in the world are relieved the 11th's past. I certainly am. I remember I was due to fly to the USA two weeks after 9/11 and all had to be cancelled. Planning my third trip now since then and looking forward to see the streets of NY!

Back to scrapping. I think it is much easier to scrap girl pages ... I always stumble when it comes to do boy layouts. I have two sons who love to see layouts about them though so I have to really think hard how to approach each layout and leave the flowers behind. This is my youngest son Connaugh.


Perfect for boys.......Prima Londonerry and Sassafrass Lass
Thanks for the visit, best I go and do a girl page now and De-stress from the boy pressure!

Approaching.....Just a few more months!

Hello, Hello! I'm sitting here wondering what happened to the start of the year.....'Where did it go'? It won't be long and my children will be giving me extensive lists for the 'Big man in Red'.

The shops are starting to get Christmas stock in already, so soon I ask? This is a warning for me to start getting organized.....I so often let time slip away and before I know it, it's too late and I've missed the boat. Not this time! This year I will be doing Two Advent Calender Classes at 'Scrappy Hollow', Melbourne.

The first was very popular last year and requests/hints have been filtering through the shop from customers, again I ask...Already? 'So here they are'!

Graphic 45, Kaiser and Twiddleybitz.

Class date: November 13th. 9.30-4.30

Advent 25x Draw set - Graphic 45 & Kaiser.
Class Date: November 27th. 9.30-4.30

My son thinks he has better ideas for these................Robots! When the time comes for them to be filled with chocolates for each day I wonder if he will change his mind?
