Kraft it Up

Here is my LO for Kraft it Up this month, you had to include this saying 'there is no greater gift than today' on your page and of course it needed to be on kraft.  Here is a photo of Daphne and Peter on the day she came home from hospital, I thought it really fitted the criteria....

As you can see I have used more of 'For the Record' from Echo Park, love the colour combos, and some lovely glimmer mists.

I love Jillibean Soup

Here is my latest sample for Paper Addiction using the new range in store 'Blossum Soup' from Jillibean Soup. Got lots of paper left so may very well have another LO coming soon, so watch this space.

These photo's were taken in the backyard of our new house about a year ago. Olivia is my little ray of sunshine and she is so cheeky....

Another LO I have done this week is for Out of the Hat I have used the 'For the Record' range from Echo Park, another new favourite of mine..

This is a Photo taken of me by my great Uncle who lives in Rome and we were able to visit them back in the eighties, forgive the stripy turtleneck and lovely haircut, my mother thought this was high fashion LOL....
Well TFL

Make and Take Monday at Paper Addiction

I have been busy this week, creating an item for a make and take on Monday 7th March at Paper Addiction, I was able to utilise some lovely papers from We R Memory Keepers and an Acrylic Frame from Making Memories to create an embellishment which could be used on a card or a LO. I have examples of how this could be used.
The Card

The Layout

and a close up of the frame on the LO.

If you are free on Monday, come on down to Paper Addiction at Lawnton between 10am - 4pm and while stocks last, I will be able to show you how to create this little number, and you could pick up the matching papers to create a cute card or Layout.

My Class Kit at Mad About Scrappin for March

Hiya All

I was talking about my 'Circa 1934' kit for Leanne at Mad about Scrappin last post and she has released it so I can now share with you.  My take on these gorgeous papers....


This is a picture of my maternal grandmother and grandfather at 'Cloudland' in Brisbane pre WWII, Athena or Athie and Alexander known as Sandy. I handmade the ribbon flower and created a button heart which I think adds to these gorgeous papers.


Here is my grandfather in Egypt during WWII, I absolutely love this photo, I have several more taken around the region as well during his 'war years'. I created a box flower and used lots of ephemera on this page.

This Old House

This is a photo of the 'war home' that my grandfather had built when he came back from the war, this was in Camp Hill and I spent 6 years there myself after my grandmother died back in the 80's. We moved up from Sydney to look after my grandfather, Lot's of memories here, :D

Well hope you all like my little trip down memory lane, I love these papers from Cosmo Cricket and really want to get my hands on some more....
