Roving with Circus

This is my latest layout of my daughter, it is of when she was roving with her circus group.
Having the photo quite big and with the colours already evident in the photo I did not need to add to much to the page.
thanks for visiting.

October Challenge for Scrapjack

I have finally had some time to head over to where they put up challenges each month.

Here is my entry for the October challenge,I got my inspiration from Julie's layout.

It is one of my daughter who was exhausted after a tough session at circus.

It may not be the most pretty shot but surely tells a story of how hard she worked.

Day at the Melbourne Botanical Gardens

We recently went on a day trip to the Melbourne Botanical Gardens, We had the most wondeful day, and even the weather held out for us.

I wanted to capture all the elements of the day, so I drew inspiration from one of Lisa's layouts over at keeponscrappin, it gave me a way that I could incorporate all my photos, as you can see there are plenty.I also had to add a fold out section to make them all fit.

I have put this one into my daughters album and will be doing one for my sons, It will be interesting to compare the two layouts once I completed it.

Keep posted and I will reveil when I get it done.

thanks for dropping by


The things I value most as far a an eleven year old is concerned

I really enjoyed creating this page, I loved the photo when I took it whislt LeShea was stilting at the Knox Festival. She was having a rest at this stage and I feel the look on her face tells us all of how tiring stilting can be.

I also thought the use of the card stating what I value most would be interesting from a eleven years olds point of veiw, I wonder if she will agree with what she has written when she is older. Only time will tell.

This is the next addition to The greens Album, For the people who know me will now that the fact that this layout only has a few elements on it made this layout difficult , I so wanted to fill in the space but I am happy with result as the photo is the real focus.

Ist Birthday Card

Got stamping with my stamping up collection and created this card for my cousins little boys first birthday hope they like it.

Wedding Charm

Yes I have done it again i have recyclyed a female hygiene product tin, this one was originally used for panty liners.Really sad when you buy the product just so you can scrap the tin it comes in.

I made this for a charm you give a bide on her wedding day ( just a little hint dont tell the Bride what the product was originally designed she may not appreciate it)

I was quite happy how it turned out and have done my part for the environment by recycling.

thanks for taking the time to have a look.

Cricut Creation

I was asked by a good girlfriend of mine to make a card for her nephew and since I was itching for inspiration where I could use my Cricut I was delighted, this the card that I came up with.

And I am fairly happy with the result.

Birthday Card for my Manager

I was put in charge of making the card for my Managers 50th birthday and this is what I came up with.

The tree was made with my trusty Cricut and the lovely flowers were from some lace I purchased at a craft show and finally I used the roller stamp scribble from Stampin up to get the effect on the tree.

I am happy with the result so I hope she likes it.
