Stuck?! Sketches - 2nd May Challenge

This months second May challenge at Stuck?! Sketches is another opportunity for a few fun hours.

I've chosen some Stamperia papers (Vintage Rose collection) ..... my favourite soft colours for a photo of my eldest granddaughter.

A few sparkly Prima flowers and one of my favourite older dies (from Memory Box). I found several small pieces to cut out and add to the d├ęcor ..... and of course a little added bling.

Not photographing too well - the colours are so much prettier in 'real life'. 





Thank you for stopping by ......

Stuck?! Sketches Challenge - May 2017

Now I'm settled into my new rental (while the house gets built) I've got loads of time to scrapbook and papercraft.  Couldn't wait to play around with the lovely challenge from Stuck Sketches this month.

Just adore this little girl - one of my honorary 'grand-daughters from Canada.  They don't come much cuter that Miss Ashley.

I've chosen some papers from Kaisercraft's Peek a boo collection and added a little piece of 'green' from an old K&Coy stash.  Flowers from Prima and of course a little bling. I've used a Kaisercraft die for the 'lace' and La La Land stitched circles.

White with 1 - April Challenge


Found myself with some time (finally) to enjoy crafting. Roughly six months to go until I move into my new home ..... but I've decided I can't wait (and miss out) on all the fun in the interim.  I've managed to locate enough supplies and tools to keep me busy as I nest in my rental and dream of the studio I've designed to indulge my obsession.

Blue in any shade is a favourite for me .... and this months challenge (Helium Blue) from White with 1 and the accompanying sketch for inspiration was a fun hour.

I've used some old really K and Company paper I found in my search of the storage facility  yesterday. I didn't manage to locate my vacuum or TV but scrapbook boxes popped up immediately. I've added bits and pieces of like coloured stickers, bling and die cuts.  I really love these photos of a much loved 'Niece' from Canada whom I visit as often as I can.  Jesie is such a delight and is growing into a confident and accomplished young lady.

Thank you for taking the time to look at my page - I hope you liked it.

123 CHALLENGE - APRIL 2017

After many months of packing and moving I've finally found the time to enter a scrapping challenge. I've been looking and planning to enter the 123 Challenge Blog for months .... there just always seemed to be so much to organise and arrange with my relocation interstate (not to mention to try and locate some supplies).  This months requirements' were too close to the heart to ignore Colour - Pink ........ Word - Beautiful and of course the Hearts.  So here it is - my beautiful Emi enjoying making mudpies.  She's so little in this photo - hard to believe she's a teenager now.



A little sparkle, some paper flowers mixed with Prima and a few die cuts from vellum.  I've used an old piece of pink gingham cardstock from Wild Asparagus (I loved their papers).  A few punches from Martha Stewart, a little homemade texture paste and here it is.

Whilst I desperately miss my scrap room and all my packed supplies its nice to know you can still get some little treasures at the local discount store.  I can hardly wait for my house to be built and move in. Forget my new kitchen .... I cant wait to unpack the craft supplies :)

Thank you for taking the time to look at my efforts.
