Only a true scrapper documents an injury before bandaids.....

YUP... a true scrapper.. takes photos of injuries before applying bandaids....
or in this case no bandaids at hand so she had to ride all the way home first..
I had the urge to do something creative so I made sure I got some essential supplies whilst out... 
Go ME!!!!.....

"She Has An Ouch"
as per usual I made the background BEFORE I even thought about photos etc...
 yep it's the way things happen in my head....
some closies..
 i used some A Piece Of Cake Designs Flair buttons... these are way cool And yes 
they have been sitting in my stash for quite a while....... and some Project Life stuff.. and NO WAY 
am I going to the ... dark side.. strictly scrapper for me....
 also used some of the most gorgeous Rainbow Splendour Products......
the Red Chevron Bow {who said you have to use them the right way up}... 
and Blue/Green Chevie.. how cool are they......
 is there a rule about the title being at the bottom of the page..?? oh I missed that memo..
 just like most of the scrappy rules.... pffft what rules..
OH OH OH and did you see I used that Stampendous Aged Ivory Embossing Powder 
To create the circles.. 
all I did was swipe some texture paste {new brand they didnt have the one i like and i'm not too keen on this one but thats a whole other story}.. sprinkled the embossing powder randomly .. shook it off and heated it up... i LOVE LOVE the effect.... 

ANYHO.. thats it for now.. happy to see those who came and visited the last time... now i've got to get time to start blog hopping again..
have a superb day..

sometimes it feels just right....


You know some days it feels just right to sit down and take some time out for yourself.. While my man was outside creating his "mantique" {his word for restoring a old kitchen hutch and making it into a cabinet to store the "STUFF" he collects}, I decided to have a play..

{forgive me for my dumbness.. but i haven't blogged for a while and quite frankly just couldnt be bothered moving things around..... BUT this was actually the second layout i did today... whoops... }

"Colour Is Life"

I had actually made this background about a month or so ago but didnt like it so i gave up and left it sitting on the table and walked off... and only just having returned to the scrappy desk today and found it.... so i cheated a little and brought it back to life... well gave it a life.....
I love these photos ... Tarj in all his weirdness.. One day he just decided that to draw on the driveway he NEEDED to wear his cricket helmet...... yep.. I KNOW RIGHT?!
some closies...
using Stuff i have... some old.. real old..and some kind of newish....
 i tell him every night... 
I love you more than the world.... 
and felt like i just needed to SAY it on this layout....
 Next up.. well it was the first for the day.....

"Love Is..."

 well... where to start... i wanted to create.. sat down and discovered i had NO grey backing board that i always use.. and i had NO texture paste.. so i had to do something else instead.. this piece of PP was on the desk. apparently miss Ivy had it out... {who knows why}.. so it was a sign this had to be used...
So i just went for it....
I created the whole layout without knowing what photo or what theme it was going to be.. just played..
Some closies...
i even did the unthinkable in scrapbooking terms.. i used.. .NAIL POLISH and painted the title RIGHT onto the photo.. oh i know.. i'm bad.. .but hey i create for me and just go with the flow...
 the fence is a Scrapmatts chippy .. covered in SOMETHING.. i have no idea what its called.. or if i even used it "correctly".. I was given a little bag of it ... i cant even remember when and its been sitting with my stuff... and today i thought i'll give it a go.. randomly put some glue on the chippy, sprinkled the stuff.. shook the excess off and heat gunned it... i LOVE IT.. i want more.. NOW to find out what IT is????
 so there you have it.. i created.. i loved it.. i NOW have a list of ESSENTIALS i need to get... oh and photos to scrap as well.. 

thanks for visiting.. i 'm hoping to get back out into the World wide Scrappiness...... so i may be visiting you as well.. 
have a superb day...

SHITBALLS........................................

Well Hello...................
its been so long...
recently .. well in October I had my happy day and some awesome friends of mine gave me a voucher to The Scrapbook Cottage... 
and after a few weeks of it sitting on my fridge I actually decided to go and spend it.....
and then the next thing was to actually create something.. 
So I put out a call on Facebook for some sketches...
and then this happened....
First up...


and then we all know me and sketches.. but looky here this actually Looks LIKE the sketch.. its amazing...

"You're So Sweet"

and of course the close ups..... so many pretty products out there right now..



and then next up on the list of sketches is the November 


and here is what happened....
"Our Tradition"


this one when I saw it I thought Shitballs.. look how neat and square that is.. I don't DO neat and square.. so my spin on it.. 
this is the reason I like sketches...
Some closies...

so there you have it.. I Scrapped.. and you'd think by the amount of photos that I've been taking lately that I'd be able to take some better ones than this hey.. apparently not.. well in my defence it is gloomy and overcast here this morning... well thats my excuse and I'm sticking to it...

hope you have a superb Saturday... and I'm thinking I might get the gear out again this afternoon for a while.. so hopefully it wont be so long between posts...

Happy days gorgeous people......
