My Little Red Devil

Hello and Happy Saturday!

I can't believe I'm at home and scrapbooking on a gorgeous day like today! But I really wanted to play with the new Cosmo Cricket goodies and the Apron Lace punch.

I used the sketch #1 from 52 Sketches. I am hoping to complete the whole collection before the end of the year. Lots of fun!

Have a beautiful weekend!

One more!

Hello again!

I'm feeling super crafty today. Housework can wait...I can guarantee that the dirt is still gonna be there tomorrow *grin*. So I'm taking a nice little break to play with my scrapbook goodies!

I made this page for the June challenge at White With 1. I love the red/white combo, so bright and happy!

I'm off to my craft room, have a beautiful afternoon!

A Happy Heart

Hello and Happy Tuesday!

Yesterday I decided to take the day off and enjoy some crafty time. It was so refreshing!

I made this page for 52 Sketches. The Porcelain collection is still one of my favourites...I love the colours and the softness of the designs.

I made all the embellies by myself using their papers, and I got the chance to try my new toy: the Fiskars Apron Lace Punch. I am totally hooked, I love it!

And...I woke up this morning with fabulous news...Basic Grey added the layout to their Gallery! Yay me!

Hope you have a fabulous day!

I made this card using papers from Patti Picklicious by Kirsty Wiseman. You really gotta check them out, her work is simply amazing! Not to mention she's a wonderful friend who always knows how to put a smile on my face.

Hope you have a wonderful Sunday!

Bed bug

Hello and Happy Thursday!

I made this page using the sketch #24 from 52 Sketches. I think this one is going into my favourite list...for a few reasons:
  • I really like how you can turn a crappy photo into a beautiful scrapbook page
  • The embellies from the Bloom & Grow collection are so adorable
  • I have so much fun adding stitches to the page
  • And last but not least...this totally made my day...Stephanie likes my page! This is the second time a crafty celeb made a coment about my work, oh my ego feels soooo good!

Have a wonderful evening!

I found this fabulous online store called The Paper Passion. I am so pleased! They have the latest and greatest in scrapbooking goodies and they take E-transfers! I just placed my first order and the customer service is fantastic.

You know I strongly support independent stores is my contribution to the cause!

Oh now to wait patiently for the mailman!

Have a wonderful Tuesday!

My weekend so far...

1. We took the boy to the lake...he LOVES feeding the geese; and giggles and squeals when they get close to him! It's such a cute scene!

2. Some of my flowers...I have to admit I know absolutely nada about gardening, not even the name of these poor things. But I managed to keep them alive, that's a huge accomplishment!

3. Grilled chicken with teryaki rice...delicious.

4. Chocolate cake with whipped cream frosting!

5. A glass of Australian shiraz-cabernet to relax before bedtime...

Hope you are enjoying your weekend!

It's been cold and rainy for a week really feels like Fall and it inspired this layout with a picture from last year. I absolutely adore the Bloom & Grow collection, isn't it lovely?

Have a fantastic evening!

Almost 2

I made this page using the sketch #23 from 52 sketches. What a fantastic group of talented ladies, and the sketches are gorgeous!

This is Monkey Boy at 22 months old...have I really been a mom for almost 2 years? Wow! The papers are Basic Grey - Lime Rickey collection (yes, I still have a few left! lol). And the journaling reads: "Watching the school bus in the mornings. Dinky cars. YouTube videos. Star Trek. Going for a walk. Chocolate chip cookies. Running around the house. TV. "

I realized I don't do much journaling in my layouts...and I might regret it later when my memory starts to I found an awesome font, I wish I could write like that! Ok, don't laugh...the name of the font is Catholic School

Have a wonderful evening!
