 Hello again creative friends.  Three posts in three days!  It must be time to clear the desk ready for Christmas!

I've focused on  scrapping our smallest Grand Girls since we've not been able to see them because of the Pandemic.

Inspired by Paige Taylor Evans and others on her site, I've tried my hand at this textured page.  It takes ages to make, but I think the results are really worth the effort.

The paper and embellishments are from Paige Evans collection, "Take the scenic route."

Thanks for calling today and wishing you a Happy Christmas.

Stay safe.

Backyard Bliss

Sharing a page today about our little wild life warrior.  Our three and a half years old Grand Girl loves to get into the dirt and find things.

Imagine her delight the day she found this gecko and happily watched it crawling around on her Emma Wiggles top.

I used this vibrant paper from Paige Taylor Evans, "Go the Scenic Route" to balance the bright yellow of the Emma top.

The gecko cut file is from Silhouette and I kept the page super simple to allow the photos to shine.

Thanks for calling in; I hope you are keeping well.

Sweet heart

Another Grand Girl page, this time using a divine Cocoa Vanilla Collection called 'Daydream". 

I love the big blue eyes this little Girl's Mummy captured when Miss Violet was pondering in a cardboard box.

Using the wreath paper as the base, I added a lot of extra moths, one of the gorgeous corduroy hearts and some sequins.

The stitched heart is a cut file from Cut to You, it's called 

"Sew Loved"

I love the look with the variegated DMC thread stitched throughout. 

Thanks so much for calling in to say G'Day, keep safe and 

Happy Christmas

Baby Obsessed

Hello  crafty friends; it has been a while since I've posted but life gets in the way sometimes and especially at Christmas time.

I've been working on layouts for my smallest Grand Girls, the ones who live in Victoria.  Because of Covid, we have not seen them since the beginning of the year.  They plan on coming home for Christmas, so we are holding our breath that the borders down get clamped shut again.

I've used a sweet cut file from Gwen Wruck's collection at Cut to you. It is called Rag Doll and just perfect for this page.

Here's a close up of the journalling

The papers are all from "Follow the Scenic Route" by Paige Taylor Evans.

Thanks for visiting and for any comments you care to leave.
