I fell in love with this range as soon as I received it. It is just so soft and pretty and I just wanted to keep playing with it once I started!

So of course, I made something for myself for my new scrap room!

This is a tissue box cover that has been sitting here waiting for altering for quite a while (I won't exactly say how long! lol) and this range was just perfect for it.

and detail pics... of course!

I repurposed a keyring given to me of the Eiffel Tower and have used it on here. Matched the papers perfectly I think and it's a great way to re-use something.

I think these papers are going to make their way into my all-time favourite paper range!

My Haunted House...

Gotta share this...

I so totally love this. It is one of my most favourite projects ever and it was so much fun to make....

The size of this house was all determined by the gates so it's actually larger than the seasons music box houses I made.

And yes, of course there are detail pics... lots of them!

Everything bar the fence and gate and bats have been made from scratch. It really was a lot of fun working out how to get that real haunted house look.
Though my oldest ds doesn't think it's haunted enough... teens!

What do you think????

I had an absolutely awesome time in Hyden!!!!

It was fantastic to get away and teaching wasn't quite as scary as I thought. I'm still not a public speaker though... I do so much better in just small groups... very very small groups...

I did take the camera... but only took a couple of photos... am I bad or what!!!!

So here we go...

The Fabulous Karen...

Thank you Karen for such an awesome weekend!!!

The hall where we spent the weekend scrapping...

I did a couple of the classes with Mistra...

Mistra is an awesome scrapper... so talented and such a lovely lady. It was great catching up again Mistra!

My scrapping buddies... Margaret

and Gail (who dobbed me in for teaching!)

(btw Gail... I haven't forgotten...keep watching over your shoulder... lol)

I really must say a heartfelt thank you to Karen. It really was one of the best weekends I've ever had.
And I have to thank all of the girls who did my classes... you were an awesome bunch and I loved teaching you. Thank you for taking it easy on me...
I'm no longer a teaching virgin! lol

When I get time to scratch myself I will take pics of the 2 layouts I did in Mistra's classes.
Otherwise I'm flat out with DT work, but will be back to share the last of my October projects for Kaiser!

Blogging week...

If you haven't been to see yet, I'm on the blogging roster this week for Kaisercraft.
I can share my layouts, but if you want to see more (and I suggest you do!) head over to the Kaisercraft blog.
There's some amazing work there by the rest of the girls...

So onto Bonjour... this has to be one of my all time favourite ranges... it's just so gorgeous!

I did this layout of my niece with a photo taken on her birthday when she was staying with us. She's turning into such a lovely young lady.

And here are some detail shots...

And spooky 13th Hour...
This range is sort of Halloween, but not really. There's a lot of layouts that can be done from this range, especially for boys!!!!

So first up we have the Harry Potter layout, from when I took the boys to the last Harry Potter movie!

And my teenage boy layout... well he's not really a teenager, but close enough! And he certainly looks like one!

Definately some versatile and yummy ranges! But if you want to see more you will have to head to the Kaisercraft blog as I'm off to retreat tomorrow so won't be able to share my cards or otp until next week... trust me... you want to see the otp!!!
So happy with the way they came out....

I'm off to do some packing... have a great weekend!

Family mini album

This album has been on my to-do list now for months, so I was glad to be able to get it done.It's basically a trip through time for my parents, photos from their wedding, having kids, and their retirement. This is going to be their Christmas present this year, so shhh.....

I've used Bo Bunny Timepiece collection, and one of their watch albums.

A detail look at the cover....

The inside pages...

PS... keep an eye on the Kaiser blog this week and you might see my projects...

Scrapping up a storm

This is what unlimited time can do... and I've been having a ball!!!!

I'm putting some entries into the show this year, and there's a new section in scrapbooking... double page on Esperance.
So I've been playing with doubles using the photos I took out at Lake Monji the other day!

I have to say... I absolutely LOVE these photos! So peaceful...

And the wildflowers are all out...

And because I love heritage, I had a play. My biggest problem with these photos is trying to date them.

I've also made a frame using the gorgeous Bonjour range. Told you I'm totally in love with this range. It's on my all-time favourite list!
I've used one of the frames from Kaisercraft, painted then used crackle paint, then inked. Gives a lovely soft feel, that matches the papers.

And I couldn't resist using one of the Prima Resins I recently acquired. I'm going to have acquire more I think... they are just gorgeous!

I have a mini album to share too, but will do that in a couple of days....

Being on holidays has given me time to just play with my scrapbooking...
and here are some layouts I've had fun playing with last week!

The photo on this layout I took somewhere between Northam and Corrigin. There was a heavy fog laying around, so I pulled the camera out while we were driving and had a play.

Sometimes you get the most beautiful of photos!

This photo is a favourite of mine. I'd taken Nicholas to go and take some photos of the sunset over Esperance bay and we went to the Port Authority Beach. It was so still and the light was beautiful. This was taken without the use of a tripod, but it's so clear!

I used scraps of paper for this one.

I'm very lucky in that I have a disk of heritage photos of Esperance. I have them all printed and ready to scrap when I have inspiration. I just wish I knew when some of them were taken!
This layout I wanted to try some misting on chipboard.

And this final double layout was a just because layout of my favourite baby boy!

He's helping mum make the bed!!!

And cause I'm a sneaky lil devil... lol... I'm going to share a sneak pic of one of my Bonjour projects for Kaisercraft....

Stay tuned, and you might see the finished projects earlier than you thought... lol
