 Scrappy folk.....So the mid-month Stuck?!sketch is up and looks like....

Isn't it pretty?

I decided to flip it and so my take looks like....

{Cake Crazy}
love to see your super fun side.
 I used a C/W template, glimmermist, distress inks, tea dyed canvas, muslin, a little heart-lock from scrap fx..and of course lots of machine stitching.

Hope you are having a fab weekend and hope you get the chance to join us at stuck?!. Be sure to pop over to the Stuck?! blog and have a look at the many awesome CT examples...

 Just thought I would leave you with a sneak of a layout I've done for next month ...... Thanks again for stopping xxxxx

Just Because I want, layout :OP

 Happy Sunday peoples!!!!

Firstly.......SUPER HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my main man.....hope you have a great day, hun!!!

Now onto scrappy stuff....I've been creating, using texture paste again and a whole lot of bits from Craftqueen (the treasures you can find......sigh!)

 I worked on this layout during the day, yesterday over at Miss Annette's place....always have such a lovely time with Mary and relaxing too!!!

{ Always }

The silver rings are from a beautiful bit of jewellery that my darling little man (Hugo) broke a while ago and I thought I should put it in my stash..."'cause you just never know what might work!!!!
  The chippy is from Scrap FX....isn't it beautiful....

 Love this layout....especially the pic of me with my girl.... motherly sigh!!!!

Hope your having a lovely Sunday and hope you have a bit of scrappy time.

Mary's October Challenge- @ Orange Paperie & Co

Happy Saturday, peoples!!!!

 Over at OP&C this month the wonderful Mary has set our challenge...

Mary recently went on a Figian Holiday and is having trouble settling back into reality.....hence her fab colour challenge, to take the colours in this pic and create.....

These are colours I don't usually use so it was a bit of a challenge, but I did it!!!

                                                                    {Summer Breeze}


 A huge thanks to our October Guest Designer
 Lizzy Hill.

Hope you have a chance to join us at   Orange Paperie & Co  this October !!!!!

Before I go just wanted to share this photo I took of DS#2, the other week when he left Orange (He is currently on a  one year exchange program to Hiroshima University)

Have no fear, it shall be scrapped very!
He called me about half an hour was so good to hear his tugs on my heart strings...sigh!

Scrap The Boys-October Challenge.

So over at
 STB   this October the challenge is......

* This month your challenge is to create a layout that is about your childs favourite book or book series, if your child is too young to have a favourite book, what is your favourite book to read to him...

 Cool challenge hey!
So at this point in time, Master Hugo likes to have the same story read every night!!!!

A book by no other than .....Dr Seuss

One Fish,
              Two Fish,
                            Red Fish,
                                          Blue Fish

 Now, although I love the bright colours used on the's not really me, so I neutralized the colours so to speak. I used some Simple Stories pp....a chevron mask....the alpha stamps I recieved as a birthday gift from the lovely Mary Bennetts . I machine stitched around the edge of the layout. I used glimmermist to create my tree trunks and misted the muslin for the tree tops.

Love how the fish turned out.... and then I just added a little splash of colour here and there...oh yeah! that frame on the right-hand side is a CW template....

Hope you are inspired and keen to document your little ones or even grown ones all time favourite story/stories.
 If time permits I think I'll try to do another layout using this criteria, using my older son's favourite book, when he was 3ish....sigh! (that's nearly 20 years ago, now as he turns 23 on the 10th of this month!!!!.....where does the time go????)

Thanks for popping in.....would love to know you have stopped by....

Happy Scrappy love to you all..
