“Hiding Out!!”

This week I have been hiding out, lol!! In my scrap-room of course! Finally a bit of time to play 🙂 With things being so hectic and studying again I decided to have a break and hide and play!

I have managed a layout last night and I have been making some butterflies to decorate my scrap room wall 🙂 As I am not working now tmorrow night, I am going to have another session and see what I come up with after I get a bit more home work done 🙂 I have caught up online with a few of the girls at Home and Scrapped and have found another challenge I would like to do :


This layout I can finally share with you as I joined in the August Scrap whisper and now it has finished, and we have revealed our layouts. I enjoyed putting this one together, as I was third in line to get the whisper and I wanted to scrap about mum’s things that she used to collect and enjoy! This photo I took when we packing up the house to show how long mum and dad had been there and to remember 🙂

006This one I did last night catching up with a few of the girls in the forum. It is Heather’s Step By Step page for the August CC 🙂 A coupe of pics of our pups in the car when we take them up to get their nails trimmed 🙂

I decided to make something pretty for my scrap room and came up with the idea of using my Big Shot and dies to make some layered butterflies 🙂

018I used four sizes of my dies and glued them on top of one another. When dry I bent their wings to give some dimension then added some Dimensional Magic down the middle of their bodies and sprinkled some SU Glass glitter. I then used some beading wires to create their antenna. Thank you Sheryn for the idea 🙂

019Here you can see them a bit clearer and how I put them together. I am looking forward to putting them up tmorrow after the Dimensional Magic completely dries 🙂 I just used up some of my thicker pattern papers to make them form my stash 🙂

Stay tuned for hopefully some more layouts in the coming days 😉

“Retail Therapy”

Hi everyone,

Sorry for absence, I do miss you all 🙂  Been really busy with work and just signed up to do my Disability Cert IV to get more work. It goes for 6 months so will keep me busy! I am cramming in a bit of scraping here and there and spent the weekend with my Sis and family. We took the kids to Melbourne for the day on Saturday and it was a great day!! It is so busy and the sights are so funny sometimes and amusing 🙂

IMG_2959This one is of Ali and I on the tram going up Bourke Street to the mall 🙂 Yes that is my nephew hiding behind us !

IMG_2962                  The tourists can get a horse and cart ride to see the sights. I preferred to just take a photo!

IMG_2961                                                                                  They are beautiful 🙂

IMG_2965                                        These guys looked awesome and they were getting a few donations 🙂

We had a great day and boy we walked some miles around the Victoria Market and the ‘retail therapy’ was just what we needed 🙂 Great place to visit but give me the country any day lol!!

“Oh Scrappy Day!”

That is what I did today. I locked my self in my scrap room and spent the day playing with some new Kaszazz stamps and things 🙂 Well I did come out for food and drink etc, but there was no housework done lol!  Just a day for me 🙂

I managed to get these four layouts done, I didn’t use a sketch or a challenge, they just came to me by plonking things down, not thinking about it and getting them done 🙂

002For “Happy Little Life” I used some paint on the background and added some hearts using a mask and texture paste. I cut a heart border from some pp and added some washi tape and a few word stickers 🙂

005This one is of “Mums Iris” that she always had in the garden.  I used the SU Hexagon Punch and some pp to male the background. I am trying to use up some of that stash of mine 🙂

008A couple of photos from our girls day out Melbourne trip last year 🙂 I used a die cut for the background, a bit of texture paste, fabric tape and a lovely tag that Heather Waldron made me with a butterfly 🙂

003A couple of photos of Sam that I had when he was having fun in the garden in the Summer!  I took these from the front porch looking down at him, for a different angle 🙂 Just for a different border I punched a few cats from my fave Basic Grey “Max and Whiskers” pp. To soften it I used a bit of texture paste on my Chevron background stamp 🙂

I had a great day and achieved quite a bit. After such a busy month filling in at work it will be nice this week to have a little more time up my sleeve and hope to play a bit more 🙂

“So Little time!”

That is how I feel at the moment! Not enough hours in the day!!

Today my bestie Mary Jo and I booked in to scrap for the day together. I had the day off and Mary is on holidays. We had a great time, chatting, scrapping the afternoon away 🙂 I managed two layouts and clever Mary made some gorgeous cards 🙂

009This one was fun to do of the boys ‘playing games’ as they do 🙂 I used some Dyluisons ink sprayed onto the white card stock, added some Kaszazz Cogs stamped in Stormy Sky Distress ink and added a banner with some twine and a bit of washi tape, with thickers title.

012Both these layouts came together pretty quick for me for a change. I decided to place and stick and just get it done 🙂  This one I used an older photo of Cody on the left and one of this yr on the right of him and Willo 🙂 I used a bit of Dyluisons inks sprayed on the Kraft background with the Kaszazz Chevron Background stamp and I used some texture paste over a chicken wire mask. I added a few embellies, some tape and twine to finish 🙂

It was a great afternoon, with no housework involved 🙂
