Head down and creating

I am not going to say much about these pages of yet but will explain  latter hopefully soon:

I will say I had fun creating them and fun getting the photos for them as well, this was Christmas with my family 2009 and when we get together its a scream with a little help from some bubbly beverage (Champagne)

“Cheers” hope you girls like them

 Thought I would throw in a card as well because I can

What do you think

have had some concepts going on in my head for a while and like most we all have dreams and aspirations or commonly none as BIG IDEAS

well here is my concept:

A design that needs fine tuning

and turned into this

same concept but turned into cards

I feel like I have been neglecting my blog of late or my attention has been in different directions. Today I went up to do a quick tidy of the Study as I was hopping to get outside and pull some weeds and clean up before putting up some Christmas lights, about two hours later this is what happened.


it all just fell in the frame so easy needless to say I have twice as much mess to clean up now.

I used the clock from the Sence of time stamp set from the spring mini, which I have been wanting to use for a while now, this may be turned into a workshop combining some papers from the urban garden designer series  I can see this as a scrappy page

We were young once

I caught up with some friends on the weekend and they asked me about our photos of when we were young, did I still have them, so the next day I got out the old albums and had a look if there were any more I could work with, as these are pages I had already created

I just wish we had digital cameras back in the good old days I would have so many more pictures and of better quality

Dream and Believe

These are some pages I created a while ago thought I might share. These are my own font  I created one day when I was without a computer and a printer and the border panel I did one day as I sat on the phone on the edge of a news paper


 The scroll is mine as well some times when you revisit old pages or card you can be re inspired you can forget where you once was as you keep moving forward it pays to look back every now and then.


I have used vellum on the words and scroll

Taking some time

I’m feeling lazy I woke at my normal time this morning but with no sence of urgency Luke has gone off to work therefore no rush to get him to school today. Sitting in my rocking chair next to the window drinking my coffee soaking up the beautiful sun streaming through, I can here the birds chirping this is my reminder that spring is here and days like this want last long and the next thing we will be shutting all the curtins trying to keep the hot sun out, even our spring can be hot. I could be loading the dishwasher, pull a few weeds, sweep the floor,  fold the washing, finish the layout that is spread across the kitchen table but here in my chair is just nice taking some time.chair  



Jenni and Jamie



close up

This was using the Urban Garden paper and Flower fancy and Kindred spirits stamps from Stampin Up

both layouts are the same I turned one upside down and placed the photo accordingly this sets your dimensions off each other so to sit flat and not much thinking has to be down about the second layout easy. this was a in house workshop.

This is what I should be doing Jenni’s costume

a sneak preview


wow where has the time gone now I really need to get moving and do some work.
