Flip Flaps

A New Layout

When I first saw these papers,  I wasn't that impressed with it, I thought the colours were too dark. Once I decided to use it I actually think it goes very well with my photos. I can't believe it's nearly been 2 years since Margo visited us. We had a great visit to the Zoo this day. All papers, stamps and inks are from Close To My Heart. 

Supplies Papers: Laughing Lola (X7170B)

Sculptures by the Water

I spent a very enjoyable afternoon with my sister and mum yesterday, we had lunch at the Rockingham foreshore and then checked out the sculptures on the beach. All of the sculptures were made with recycled materials, some were quirky others were unusual but they were all interesting. It's amazing how some peoples minds work. Quite a number of the exhibits were created by students at primary schools in the area and some appear to have been created by professionals.
Don't you just love the legs sticking out of the cupcakes!

Welcome friends

Welcome to my blog, I am a novice at blogging but I wanted to have somewhere that I could write my thoughts and show some of my creative projects. My first love is scrapbooking but cardmaking and paper crafts come a close second. I am also very interested in genealogy and researching my family tree took up a lot of my time during the past 2 years. Below is a photo on my great grandparents and my mother's uncle. There is so much that I would like to know about them, but unfortunately I just have to speculate about their lives. This is one of the reasons I am so passionate about scrapbooking. I love the thought that future generations will be able to look through my albums and read the stories that go with my photos chronicling not just the big events in my life but also the everyday happenings.
As I said I also enjoy card making and here are 2 of my recent creations, papers and stamps are from Close To My Heart. I am a Close To My Heart consultant and love working with their quality products. Check out my website
