Have had a few things on the go at once, so I have another project to show you...This is just a canvas with the frame covered by some Graphic 45 PP...Just love them....Some beads....lots of Collections, lots of ditressing, Glimmer mists and some flowers....I really enjoyed making this, and am hoping to enter this on "A Vintage Affair" as my altered item, but as it was only a canvas to start.....it may not be eligable to enter !!! But I loved all the different aspects ...fabric, ribbon, beads, paint, lace, vintage paper and acetate etc etc....
My next project to start, still have 2 on the go....are some more birdhouses....maybe a bit different this time....
We'll just have to wait and see.. Anyway, bye for now....Have a wonderful weekend. I hope to do some more scrapping before the "mood" disappears...

Finally....Sometimes things just dont come together easily !!! I love these LYB Love Letters papers. Was given a new Kaiser book for my DT kit, along with these devine papers...and it was only natural (for me) to make a book about the wonderful romance my parents have shared. Added some bling, some flowers and some shapes using my cricut....(Wonderful investment) May be able to show the complete book another time...Not sure if it will be a class or not !!!
Meanwhile have nearly completed two other projects...so hopefully it wont be sooo long until my next post.....
Take Care All

This is a page I have made for my Dear Aunt Margaret who lost her husband last year...My dad leaves in 2 weeks to visit her in Scotland, and when she was here in Perth during summer...I promsed to make her something as a memorial. It is a bit similar to a vintage page I did awhile ago...but I like it just the same...And I was worried I wouldn't have it finished in time...so A REAL LOAD OFF !!
I went to the Craft fair, here in Perth, today...I loved it !!! Spent too much, and could have spent more !!!! So....same time, same place...I'll be there next year !!! Will have something else to show you soon...

Have you ever had those times, when you make something and you know it's not right?? So you rip it apart and do it again...differently !!! This is my third and last attempt....we had some branches, we had some hangingand we had some on sticks.....but nothing worked....GRRRRR. So I'm glad it's over !!! Now I can get onto the next thing ....
The little birdhouses are from S2D4, the paper is from the Collecions range, also the picket fence,bird,flowers and keys..the scroll is Twiddleybitz...Some corougated cardboard, sheets of music paper and some inking ..
Hope everyone had a wonderful Mothers Day...My little ones had made me some beautiful artwork at school...I love handmade gifts, especially from my babies !!!! A hot cup of tea in bed and some new ugg-slippers....I live in my slippers...and they were getting tatty, from being washed so often......
Sadly, MY wonderful Mum, passed last year....and so it ws also a sad day for me.....Some days, I still have a hard time
dealing with it !! The past few weeks especially...Not sure why??? But I have to remind myself to "get it together" for the sake of my kids....Anyway...Another day, another scrap project to be done....

Well, I apologise for being "absent"....Not had a good few weeks, been sick and just not in the mood for scrappin...And because I have nothing new to show you, I thought I might show you something I made awhile ago. Hope you dont mind.....
Do you recognise the Kaiser papers??? I love these colours together....Have you guessed what it is ??? It is an old tv remote holder...bought cheap from Homeart....rubbed back...painted and covered in PP, then embellished.... And of course, now I use it as my tool caddy. And use it constantly !!
And, to al those Mum's out there....have a wonderful Mothers Day on Sunday !!! I hope you all get spoiled rotten...

My youngest boy, Joshua has lost his first tooth...He is soooo proud. The tooth fairy has been duly notified, and she is expected sometime tonight !!! I love these photo's and am looking forward to using them on a layout.
And I also received my order of Graphic 45 paper, and have been admiring them for the past 2 days....Too beautiful to cut up.......But, I'm sure I will eventually.....I'm thinking maybe with the new Collections 3D boxes....but whoooo knows !!! My mojo is hiding under the bed, and wont come out no matter what I promise her !!! I will be back soon...hopefully with something to show you....
Happy National Scrapbooking Day !!!!
