Just Us.......

I love this photo of my lovely Jade with me at the AFL game in March & wanted to scrap it in this vintage style....that I did so with glee! This is for Erika's 'About Me' challenge at Soul Scrappers, & it was to scrap someone that you have a close bond with.  

Hope you are all doing Ok out there, & enjoying your lives.

A little winner.....

Yes, Harry is surely the winner of my heart...what a great lad he is.   I worked on this LO for the LSBS May CC, where we needed to add some feathers & a bit of bling & luckily I was a winner too... What great photos that Ben & Linda took.  He is sitting looking out to sea here...

Thanks for taking a peek at my blog & leaving such lovely comments xxx

Now this is a challenge in the 2nd week of LSBS, 7 Deadly Sins.... & it was to scraplift one of the LO's from the Gallery, so quick sticks I worked on a LO of lovely Tashi, in the style of the master Lauren Ball.

Take care,

7 Deadly Sins

This was an interesting challenge set by Nic at LSBS.  One that I was very mindful of.
It is the first in a series of the 7 Deadly Sins, & it is highlighting anger.  My anger in this photo is at myself at this time in 1984 in my beautiful young childrens' lives, that I worried myself into such a state that I am sure I missed magic moments.....but luckily I 'grew up' & found that I need not fret all the time about everything... 

It was catharic to actually sit & think & look at the photo....but funnily enough I chose to use BG Christmas paper - Jovial, for when I was the least joyous...  life works in mysterious ways!

Take care...

May 15th Sketch by Kristie Taylor

Now isn't this a great inspirational sketch?  Check out Scrap with V, for the May 15th sketch...

This is what I chose to make..

This is Pete & I with my sister's doggie, Chief who I just loved...what a great boxer he was.  This photo was taken in 1975...weren't we spring chickens then??  So I titled my page 'Bring back the 70's' cos it would be great to whizz back & feel that era again.

Scrap room as neat as a pin.....

cos we are selling our home, so it was digital for me for these 2 challenges at Soul Scrappers
My first LO was inspired my Mary & needed to have the word 'sunshine' plus 2 patterned papers as well.  So I have used a lovely old photo of my oldest brother Lance, with myself as a baby.

Then I used Justene's lovely sketch to work on this fun LO of Harry & his kitty cat Dolby...

Hope you are all OK.
Cheers, Debi xx

Little baby Benni...

At ScrapBoutique for the month of May, dear Tam set the challenge of scrapping mothers & children, & I chose a photo of Benjamin taken in mid 1980, when he was such a little boy.  He was giggling so hard, & so was I, & I can remember it so clearly - just like it was yesterday!  It was great that Pete was nearby & we had film in the camera (film??) & he captured some lovely snaps.
Then with Sonia & Chels' challenges, I decided to use other photos of Benni taken at the same time, & these will go in his album.
I so enjoyed the colourings on Kraft, with little embellies that just seem to fit.

Take care, xxx

You are all types of lovely............

I have to say that this colour scheme is not one I would have thought of, but thanks to Lean at Soul Scrappers I now love it!  
This theme challenge was to use a B & W, or sepia photo with blues & pinks & lace....& I have to say I love this photo of Jade, &  so I am really happy with how this page turned out.
Til next time xxx

Love my kitties......

Here is my take on May's fabulous inspirational poster at From Screen to Scrap - & I have scrapped my 3 kitties. 
Mr Bobby, our big black boy kitty (who is a sook), our lovely 3 legged grey & white Scuzzi who is so wonderfully gentle natured & so loving (she does love me to brush her) & our dear departed wonderful torti Sophie who died a couple of years ago...she kept these kitties in check & we miss her telling Bobby what for!
