Creative Scrappers Designs

Being on the Design team for Creative Scrappers has been such a wonderful experience.Each week the sketches that have been given to the design teams have been such a pleasure to work with...So a big thanks goes out to Kristine for such an amazing site and everyone else that works behind the scenes.

This was Sketch 53# designed by Deb Harper ( I also taught this as a class at Scraploot). I wanted to create a real Shabby Chic feel with this layout using the Beautiful My Minds Eye "BellaBella French Flea Market" range of Papers, Prima Crystal Swirls and lots of gorgeous laces, velvets and ribbons.The Photo is a recent one of me taken by a friend and printed onto canvas material.

Sketch 57# was designed by Sketchitout.Ive been slowly doing Layouts of my Brother and Sister-in-laws Wedding, so one of the Bridal Party was a must. The Range of Papers for this layout comes from Kaisers "Sukura Park", with a few little touches of Bling and Lace.

Frizzled and Frazzled

Have you ever felt like your being pulled in all different directions and never getting very far with everything that your trying to get done...Well welcome to my world. I have that much going on and definately feeling abit frazzled...I NEED A HOLIDAY...LOL...Ok well I've got that of my chest, so a few more Layouts for you. Hope you like them, Till Next Time.

My Nephew could not resist taking his cousins motorised Dune Buggy around the backyard when he saw it...even though it had Pink on it ("Thats for Girls!" he said) but Boys will be Boys when it comes to any sort of cars. This was a Layout that I taught at Scraploot, the girls all enjoyed it and the Monkey was definately a a nice finishing touch.

I love working with the Design Team Sketches at Creative Scrappers...and the wonderful earthy tones from the 7 Gypsies Harvest Range just complimented the sketch I had to work with. My friend "K" and I mucking around yet again at a recent dinner.

All Little Girls Love having their Hair done and "A" was thrilled with what her Aunty "R" did ...a Cool Funky Hair Do which she loved. This was another Class at Scraploot featuring Kaiser Papers, Bling and Glimmer Mist.

Bella's Little Sister Ruby Rock-IT

I know its been absolutely ages since my last post...Thanks to all the emails and messages that I have received, I have been well but Life has continued to be extremely busy in all areas of my Life. Between my fulltime job, my classes at Scraploot which are continuing to go well, I have also started teaching an Advanced course focusing on different techniques and styles , so yes some weeks have been really caotic. My Dear Friend "H" had her 40th Birthday, family celebrations and a few weekends away, all have added to a very busy couple of months.

A while ago Sue the owner of Scraploot asked me to put together some samples for the Bella Product showcase at the store, it hadn't been released yet and I was amazed at the awesome new release for Bellas Little Sister "Ruby Rocket-IT". The following 4 layouts are from the "Vintage Beauty" Range.

My Niece and I at her 3rd Birthday Party playing around with lots of L aughs and Giggles.

My Godchildren and I hadn't had any photos together for ages so, so with a camera near by and all of us being in a silly mood.... alot of cool candid photos followed.

Four years ago my whole family came together and celebrated my nephews Christening, the years have flown by, but this is still one of my most cherished photos with my Little Man.

He Is ...Gorgeous, Smart, Cheeky, Reflective and very Loving. He Is my Nephew.
