What a great inspiration at Scrap the Girls this month....I just LOVE the colours & it says to, fun, fun!

So I was lucky enough to have a marvellous photo of Madeline ( love the white & blue showing so clearly) at Christmas on the Big Banana waterslide.....(great photo Jade!) & so chose to use that with some OA papers, Marg's bottle cap, Prima flowers, Echo Park do dads, & some bits & bobs from my stash, & I like how it has turned out.

Take care gals....

No rain on my parade....

A great challenge from Sandi at Dixie Pieces..using 'rain' in a used this photo of Pete with my dear mum at Ben & Linda's wedding in December 2000.  I just love this photo of my mum dressed up in such happy colours, with her brolley up to shield her from the elements.  Doesn't Pete look dashing in his 'father of the groom' suit too?

Little tiny leaves

The challenge at Dixie Pieces was to use an older that does only one I chose my little leaf punch & had a ball with them over this LO!

Enjoy your Easter everyone...hoppity to you.

I really enjoyed working on this vintage was very special.

Lovely to see you here  xx

Been out of action....

But I'm back now!!! Internet seems to be OK now - thank heavens.

We have decided to sell our home & so all weekend it was nose to the grindstone getting it ready for prospective buyers...but I did have a chance to sneak in & work on a couple of  LO's for the 
LSBS Cybercrop.

This LO of my nephew & his family, was inspired by Tara & included in 'pieces of my family.'

Another LO, of my lovely garden using a great sketch by Anna.

Take care,

Rave On

This is the title I have chosen from the list for the final LO for the Soul Scrappers Glee Club ....& yes, it was great night!  My dress up birthday party a few years I went a bit hippie-ish with this page & enjoyed digging around for that old feeling.  

Thank you for looking...

Moving to the dark side......

Yes, that is correct - I am now working on digital LO's!!  I honestly had no idea how much I would enjoy them & so I have been fiddling about for a couple of days with colours & textures....
I have only limited photos as we have not yet recovered our data from the NAS drive (heavens I hope it all returns) that was blown up by the storm, & this is one photo that I found in my email & saved to my netbook.  This is for Mary's challenge at Soul Scrappers using these SU colours.

Hope the world is being kind to you,

Cheers Debi

Lightening struck last night...

Well, it struck our neighbours home next door really during a very electrical storm ...very damaging to them & to us & other neighbours...

So with that said, I have no big NAS drive any longer to access for my photos - it blew up....oh dear me! 
It was one of the casualies of the force in our home including our air conditioner, 3 phones, the work laptop, TV & so hopefully when the new drives arrives (ordered today) hubby (Mr IT) will be able to replace the drive & restore all our back up, of our back up!!

It is SO scary when it bright & SO loud...we both jumped off our seats in fright...the poor kitties, well under the bed they went!!

Ring, ring to the insurance now....

Cheers, Debi...
