My little dude!

This is what we are always calling Oliver, and I am sure I have previously titled my LO's this too! But anyway, that is just what he is, especially in that hat!!
These photos are really bad, and edited as best I can to brighten them up, but I have lost a lot of the detail. Sorry, but after spending 2hrs in bed with a tummy bug I am NOT venturing outside to retake them today!!

I cut around the photo to make a change from having the straight edges, and broke :0 a Kaisercraft wooden flourish in two so I could have it frame the picture.

Not saying too much today...off to go and feel sorry for myself again! Hope you all have a fab weekend! X

Quick catch up...

Hi all! Long time no blog...again!!

Well I have been dipping in and out of scrapping the past few weeks, but family issues, birthdays, plus the dreaded tummy bugs have made crafty times few and far between.

Plus, wat I have made can not be shown on here...yet!

Anyway, I can't do a blog post without some sort of photo, so here are a couple of sneek peeks of some LO's I have created for Imaginarium Designs..






Have you checked out Imaginarium Designs yet? Their chipboard is so beautiful, so intricatly cut, in the most gorgeous designs. For loads of inspiration, take a peek at their blog here.

I am hopefully getting to my craft table tonight (fingers crossed!) so I may have something to share again soon! X

Front Cover!!! 'Happy Days!'

I was really excited when I was asked to do a cover piece for Scrapbook Magazine recently!
I was sent the papers and photo to work with, so the style wasn't exactly my usual, but it was nice for a change to work with bright colours, and NO FLOWERS!!! I did manage to sneek a butterfly in there though!!! :)
The full page with materials and instructions can be seen a bit further in the mag. Hope you all have a good day :)

Prima May BAP

Just stopped by quickly before I dash off to work to post this LO I did over the weekend, using the Prima Build-a-Page sketch.
I recently won this competition, and a lot of the goodies Sharon sent me were used on here...I just love the gorgeous teal flowers and different laces!

I framed each of the photos with lace, giving the whole LO a soft feel.



There's loads of texture on this page, which is so hard to show in a photo...and with the transparency background too...this page really needs to be seen properly IRL!!! Nevermind!!! :)
