Welcome to my little corner of the World! I live in Perthshire Scotland with my wonderful husband Eric. We have a daughter, Corinne who is married to Rob and lives in New Zealand, with their boys Harrison and twins Hadley and Dylan. Marie who has a wee boy Jackson, and Greg who lives with his girlfriend Kim and their baby Freyja and dog Buddy. They are where I get my inspiration from and my Grandchildren are the subjects in most of my Scrapbooking layouts. I am happy when I am in my craft room, and love making cards as well as scrapbooks.

Steampunk Sally


Hello again!   It is a cold miserable day here in my little corner of the world.  However, we have, up until today,  had 4 glorious days, when the sun shone all day.  It was so uplifting to see beautiful blue skies for a change.

Today I am showing my Elite Design Team inspiration piece for Rick St Dennis on Facebook

 
This is Steampunk Sally and you can find her here on Zibbett
I love Rick's Steampunk images, and she is a very striking lady I think. 
I tried to explain Steampunk to my friend Jane, and she just looked at me blankly
 and said "right" very slowly.  She just didn't understand! 
Never mind, I know my 'arty' friends know what it is. LOL! 
I  have started a diet to lose weight.  I have signed up with Scottish Slimmers, and I have lost 5lbs over 2 weeks.  I am really pleased with that, as I am eating normal things and I do not feel deprived in the slightest.  My target is to lost 2 stone, so wish me luck.  I'll keep you updated.
Okay, time for more colouring I think.
Please leave a little message if you have been for a visit, it really makes my day xx

Running Kim

Hello again!

It is a beautiful sunny day in my little corner of the world, I hope it is the same wherever you are!

I want to show you a card which I made for my daughter-in-law Kim for her birthday last year.  She was running a 6K race for a cancer charity around the same time, so I thought this card was very apt.

 I made a slider  card, to show Kim "running" across the card.


 Here she is at the start of her race.

 


Here she is halfway across.


and here she is almost finished.
it is such a fun card to make, and I will definitely make another one like this.

This super wee image is from Mo Manning

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges.



Crafting from the Heart  #100 Anything Goes

I have used pink for my blog this time, as Kim was running for
 Breast Cancer, who use pink on their logo and in their fund raising.

Rick St Dennis February Challenge

Hello and welcome to my little crafting world. 

 We have changed our challenge format from the Progressive Challenge on Rick St Dennis Sparkle and Glitter blog,
 to a monthly Facebook Challenge on Rick St. Dennis' Fans & Friends Facebook group. 
We will be following a monthly theme and your entries will be posted to an album on our Facebook group.
Our very first theme running from February 1 until the end of the month, 
February 29 is Hearts and/or Arrows. 
 For this challenge, which must feature a Rick St. Dennis image.
We want to see a heart(s or an arrow(s) or both somewhere on your project, 
 either in the image or in the background...or maybe it's the shape.

 Have fun with it! There are many, many images in both Rick's Zibbet and Etsy shops which would fit the theme.
Here is my card, which I actully gave to my husband for Valentine's Day.


 At first glance, this may not look like a Valentine card, but you see I have a very sweet tooth, and I love puddings.  So, I really don't like sharing with my hubby! Therefore I said that my heart belonged to him, but when you look inside the card it says..................

Luckily he found it very amusing!  
So, to follow the theme of hearts and/or arrows:  the background paper has cherubs 
with bow and arrows, there is a wee heart on the front, and there is the word heart too!

Take me back

It's sketch time over on the Let's Scrap website,so it is time for a challenge.

 Here is the sketch you need to use to create your layout.  If you look over at the Let's Scrap Blogspot  
you can find details of the prize you could win from the Scrapbook Circle. 



I used more photos from our holiday in Barcelona.  We went to LaPedrera, which was the most amazing building.  It was built as a house, to impress everyone, and boy it must have managed to do that. 


On the roof, there was a walkway right round, where you could see the fantastic chimneys.  Wonderful sculptures each and every one.


I managed to incorporate the leaflet which I picked up, tucking it in a wee pocket.



I also used one of our tickets.  It was a lovely place, and the staff were absolutely wonderful.  Helping me to the lift on every floor.  The lifts were a bit strange.  You had to go right up to the top, and then come back down one floor at a time.
I have a ton of other photos from Barcelona, so watch this space!!
Thank you for having a wee look at my blog, i wouldlove it if you could leave a message to let me know you have been here. xx
