Boys pages

Do you struggle to create anything boyish? Although the scrapbooking world has finally started to release more male orientated products I still struggle. With 6 girls to scrap and only one boy who is now 16 and hates the camera I rarely get a chance to do a boy page. I got a little inspired when I received my shipment of the new Bo Bunny Cambridge papers they really suited my son to a tee, messy and stylish all at the same time so with the help of some alcohol and distressing inks I set to work and created these.


I have never really been into the off the page items, they look great but my first thought was how the heck do you keep them clean from dust. Well that was until I started doing them, I still don't really have a lot of room in my over crowded house for them but I must say I do enjoy doing them.

Green Tara

Well I must say I have been a little on the slack side for my friends at Green Tara but with the release of their new updated blog I thought I had better pull my finger out and help fill it. This week we were asked to complete a page, a card and a off the page item.

This time I set myself a goal to use as many Green Tara products as I could with very little of anything else, so with that in mind I created these. I only added a couple of rhinestones, cardstock and various inks.

Playing catch up

Although I have been scrapping for years I seam to always be playing catch up.

Ella is now only weeks away from being 6 and I finally got her 3rd birthday pics done.

And one from her 4th birthday

This one was done by my 2nd eldest daughter


I just love Prima Marketing products but then who doesn't, out of their new ranges the Jack n Jill range has to be my favourite maybe because it is the only one I have time to play with.

When I say a page done on the Prima site I just had to scraplift it, it was the most adorable page and it inspired me to create a few of my own after I completed it.

Scraplift page

and two of my own

This has to be my favourite page right now I just love how the background looks like a patch work quilt, fantastic for baby photo's which i truly have a lot of lol.

Wow I can't believe it has been so long since I last posted...

Life has been so hectic, I would normally only leave the house once or twice a week besides the school runs and I think I have been out almost everyday for 3 weeks straight. Don't ask me what I have been doing as the list is to long and goes on forever, so when I finally got to sit today while we had a BBQ for Fathers day I thought to myself wow my body is really achy lol mmmm I wonder why.....

So how many of you have managed to get your hands on some new Green Tara Silver Sprays... Oh my these are just so beautiful the day I got them I wanted to use them all.

I also got my hands on the new Prima this week, well they never fail to get me excited. I'm so lucky to have 6 girls and a niece to scrap with all those flowers and pretty girly papers, but I must say my favourite was the Jack & Jill range oh so very cute.

Bet to go stop for dinner will post picks of pages soon...

Have You

Ever had one of those days where you wish you had not woken up when the alarm went off???
Well I have had a few days like that, and my poor scrap desk has been a shambles so I haven't even been able to scrap to vent. Might help if I stay home long enough to clean it .
Tomorrow I was going to take some r & r and go to the movies with hubby something we have only ever done once alone in 15yrs but unfortunately or fortunately depending on if you ask me or the bill collector he has been called into work.

So now I am dedicated to cleaning my desk and scrapping all day well after I do the school run.

So for now I have added a few of the pages I did last week using the new My Minds Eye papers.

Design Team work for Green Tara using her wonderful new laces along with some flowers and ribbons. All this work was for the 2010 SIA show.

I just love working with Green Tara products but I must say I haven't really done much with lace but I was please with how these turned out.

Turning plan white lace into a range of colours is easy with a touch of Glimmer Mist or chalk.

Creat flowers with mesh ribbon by pleating the ribbon into a circle and stitching the centre together.

A new face for a new year

Well it has been some time since I kept up with the blog, a lot has happened that has kept me so busy I basically forgot all about it. But the time has come to get back in the swing of scrapping and blogging.

A new year brings new things with giveaways and classes so stay tuned.

My new scrap space has been enlarged greatly to accommodate 3 scrapping children and a hubby who thinks if he give me a bigger space he will be able to share it to do his models, does he not recall the mess of one scrapper let alone there now being 4 in the house. I really can't see there be any room left for him lol.
