I need to.....

keep the Whimsy in my life, everyday....hows that for a title - but I like it! :)

I have joined in with Kraft It Up this month


I really, really enjoyed working on this LO - because it was so much fun, & I was making it just for me.

I misted & inked & doodled & coloured, & fussy cut & adhered, & stamped & found little treasures on my desk like Marg's Bits & Pieces button.

My journaling reads - The love of cherries & sunshine & the colour red, & fresh flowers, & kittens & jewels & comfort & kisses & hugs & friends & comfy seating & the internet & quirky clothes & fun shirts & good decorating & scrapping on card & making fab cards, & holding a bebe, & seeing a giraffe, & plants in the garden, bowls of fresh salad & decorating cakes.
Keep in the sunshine. Revolves around time. Give lots to receive much.
Just make life as beautiful as can be.

Thank you for looking & hugs for a great day xxx

1960's wedding wear


Now isnt this lovely!! Just check out ScrapFriends & you will find all the details for this fab challenge & so much more!!

Here is my page..

Gosh aren't those hats terrific - mine was handmade & was blue netting!! I am the little one in this piccie, aged 5 sitting with my sister-in-law at my sisters wedding in Spetember 1960. 
I am pointing to the spot where one of my front teeth had just fallen out!

I loved these soft colours, plus added a deeper shade to give some depth, plus I have used white chiffon as a base for the photo to sit. Had to add some Tattered Inspirations ephemera it!

Thank you for taking a peep.

Life is Easy, Breezy, Happy, Sunny & Good with Fab Friends

Just adore this page by the lovely Jeanenne over at ScrapJacked.  So this is how I interpreted it onto an 8.5 x 11 page...just loving that size to work on!

I used some scrumptious Simple Stories paper, with some misting of gorgeous hexagons ( what a great word) some gingham, & chevrons..this is my Tashi on her 18th birthday with her lovely boyfriend Mitchell & BFF Monica.

So my title says it all!

Thank you for looking,

Good girls vs Naughty ones

Hope you get a smile when you read my card for Sue C's choice for our Christmas Card Club.  I certainly enjoyed making this one.

I used Basic Grey paper, Carolee Creations alphas, one of my Darkroom Door stamps - love it - & my copic markers - now I dont use them much! 

I look forward to seeing the other cards!

Colour Palette Challenge #2

I really loved this colour challenge at Scrapfriends, so pleased I was able to use some lovely Tattered Inspirations ephemera from a few kits - I think they worked really well with this photo of my delightful grand daughter Tashi - a photo from her formal last November. I also died some doilies & attached one too.

Thanks for looking..

Em wanted us to stick to the sketch as close as possible plus add some stitching of any kind - but I had to jiggle!
