~Im BACK!!!!!~

Did you even notice that I was gone! We have had lots of illness in the family for the last 10 days or so (YET AGAIN!) But I am happy to say that are all well & truly on the road to recovery!

SO now I am better I have started to create again. Nothing out of the ordinary, just a few simple pages with some lovely, lovely products, all of which are available from Scrapsidaisy.
This First page is a special page to me. I have just recently had the photos of myself reproduced. I was about 8 years old in these photos. It is amazing to look back at things like this & see how much the fashion has changed...LOL....AND how much do my kids look like me?
The Papers & all the pretties are available from Scrapsidaisy.

This is an 8.5 x 11 of (YES AGAIN) my beautiful daughter. The P.P that I used is the new Gretel range from Cosmo Cricket.I actually used all the scraps from the page above.
This Big Boy page is another Cosmo Cricket page But I used the other range "Be Good". It is my D.S when he was 3 y.o & thought he was a big boy!
This page is Maddy when she was little. We used to call her possum hence the title! WOW my babies are growing up way TOO fast!
Another photo from the archives. Maddy always loved to dress up so I have created (a very simple page) using the lovely Cloud 9 patterned papers.
I hope that everyone out there that cares to look is having a great weekend & stays healthy & safe

~Simple, Simple, Simple~

Wow I had a wowser of a weekend! I got the bug bigtime! I stayed up rather late all three nights. On Saturday night I drove myself absolutely insane trying to create something out of the norm for me & this first page is what I came up with. I do like it it's just that the frustration that I went though to create it isn't worth it. So with that in mind I decided last night that I was going simple! In that I mean with simple technique! LOL.....So just last night I created these 3 pages with my simple, simple, simple technique in mind!!!!!!

Yesterday we, as a Family sat in the lounge room & went through my boxes & boxes of photos. Whilst I was at it I discovered all these gorgeous photos that I have yet to scrap. These pages have older photo's in them & it was really lovely to look back on these photos.
Enough dribble from me for today. I am off to the shops to meet a lovely friend for a girly DAY!!!

Decided to have a midnight Scrap

Hi There!
I have had a wonderful evening! It started with me having a play around & making a few changes on my blog & before I knew it it was almost midnight! I hadn't even scrapped.....Oh NO!
So close to midnight I decide that I would have a play in the 8.5 x 11 size. I threw these two pages, of my D.S, together. I am pretty happy with the way they have turned out! remember they were really quick (thanks to the cuttlebug!) & all up took an hour to create!

A new INSPIRATIONAL card blog

I just thought I would share with you all a wonderful blog that Leisa has just set up. It is called COPYCATCARDS where people can pop by and enjoy looking at lots of cards made by very talented cardmakers and scrappers...and that's where YOU come in. Why not take advantage of having a new challenge to inspire you to use up some old product and end up with a very handy stash of cards to give to friends and family? What a great way to get inspiration & maybe even sometimes a little motivation to get us creating. ( I sure am in need of some at the moment!)
So make sure you check it out!
If you are in the blogging mood don't forget to check out SCRAPSIDAISY online. Leisa has been busy adding new stock every day. It is starting to fill up & some of the most popular items sell out really fast!

A wonderful WEEKEND & (Mon)day creating

A quick share tonight to share something that I created today. I owed my nephew an engagement present from a few months back so I took the time out today to create something for the lovebirds to cherish. I used the new wooden "LOVE" that Scrapsidasiy has instore. I used pieces of my scraps, from a page I created over the weekend, with the beautiful PAPER LOFT p.p. I hope they enjoy my gift!

Sunday was Fathers Day BUT... my Hubby had a double whammy with it being his birthday as well! He was a little bit spoilt with lots & lots of pressies (but sure did deserve it) I made him this really quick card on Sat. evening but the best present of all was one that D.S. made for him at school.
It's the little things in life that are so precious!
