So a few days ago my computer decided to poop itself. Just a tad scary for me who hadn’t updated my photos for a couple of months. That’s one of the main goals these next few days I tell ya… On my recent trip to Sweden I took almost 500 photos, but even my day to day photos of the girls and our lives are just as important for me.
That’s why I love Project Life. Did you know that I upload my PL pages here? I haven’t uploaded anything recently, but I have 6 months worth of pages from both 2012 & 2013 if you want to go and have a look…
My first post over at the PaperHaus blog was also sort of PL inspired In the way that I used PL cards on my LO. There are so MANY beautiful and funky designs in Becky Higgins core kits, and I have just a few of those (aherm…)
Here is the LO that just pops because of my gorgeous Elsa. I just love this photo of her, and it captures her personality so well… She really DOES take my breath away sometimes when I look at her…
My next LO to share is for the latest Sketchabilities sketch, it’s #100. Here’s the awesome sketch:
And my example using the AWESOME Glitz line Finnley:
Lastly, a LO I did for my GDT spot over at D-Lish scraps (I LOVE the LOVE paper from Studio Calico by the way!):
Phew! Well done if you made it to the end. Leave me a comment and I’ll send a little RAK to someone who did. Good luck and thanks for visiting my little home in cyberspace!

Lots of mist in different variations on this LO, and stamping

…to Sweden for almost three weeks, I thought I’d share my latest creativity with you.
Because of the circumstances of my trip, I will keep it short…
First two LO’s I did for D-Lish scraps where I am a GDT for August & September:
Then, three LO’s with the August kit from Crazy Monday kit which I just LOVE:
Thanks for stopping by. It will be some time before I will have creative time, and inspiration again. But I will be back eventually…

I’ve got loads to share today! Grab a cuppa and come along for a crafty ride!
In September I’m going down to Christchurch to teach a class at the Scrappin’ Patch retreat. If you’re down there and haven’t registered – DO IT! Not many spots left!
Anyway. I chose the line I was going to work with a couple of months back, got the goodies and created my LO’s. Now it turns out that range is almost impossible to get, and we didn’t have enough for the class. So I have now ordered new product to play with and to do the class with, brand new GLITZ product that gets release in a couple of week. EXCITING!
So – I thought I’d share the initial class LO’s with you! I have used the gorgeous Crate Paper “The Pier”, and also some lovely cork embellies from Studio Calico. Head over to the Scrappin’ Patch blog and read about the CHALLENGE I have set over there, with these three LO’s as inspiration. There are prizes to be won!
The class is called “One sketch three ways”. I have used ONE sketch and made three different LO’s . Hope you like, I actually LOVE all three of these LO’s!
Photo credit for the second & third LO goes to the amazing Hannah Blair!
Then two LO’s that I created with the JULY kit from Crazy Monday kits, a kit with loads of possibilities!! I have just added more subscriptions, so stop by the blog or the FB page and find out how to get a kit for YOU!!
If you’re with me still, well done you! Come back soon, I’ve got more to share in a day or two!!

I realised I have forgotten to show a LO I did for a Studio Calico challenge a little while back. Sketch I think? Anyway… This photo is SO precious to me. It’s taken about an hour or two after my family from Sweden arrived in December. It was my dad’s first time ever meeting Elsa, and it had been since 2008 that he saw Tova. So – very cool. And the way they just took to him instantly was magic. Elsa literally ran out with open arms to great him, my mum and my sister when they arrived in the cab from the airport. No, I have no photos of that. I was crying too much… But the memory is forever in my heart that’s for sure!
Back to the LO; it’s Echo Park papers, and then embellishments from the Maggie Holmes little mini kit she did for a class. I didn’t buy the class, just the kit. LOVE the colours! The mist I have used are the mini neon Mr Hueys. Gorgeous colours, aren’t they? And the gold doilies? LOVE! Need to get me some more of those!!
