Back on the 12th May I shared this SWEET layout on the D-Lish blog. You can find all the extra details RIGHT HERE

For those who may be wondering, that is The Girl's Paperie papers, from many, many years ago. Man, I miss those papers. They were soooooo pretty. Fortunately, in my usual fashion, I've kept a small stash for emergencies, like this! ;-) 

The photo of the kitchen is off Pinterest (definitely not my own). If it was my own, it would mean I had my dream kitchen and I'd be too busy cooking up a storm to do any scrapping, lol! 

Or maybe I should just buy a ticket in the lotto? 

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you are having an awesome crafty day!

Cheers and big hugs, xxx

D-Lish Scraps May Challenge Share...

Can you believe it is May already? That means we are over a third of the way through the year, and only two months until we are half way through the year. YIKES!!!!!

Well, before anymore time passes, I will share my creation for this month's D-Lish Scraps Inspiration challenge. You can find all the details and other inspiration right HERE on the D-Lish Blog

I had a wonderful time playing with these colours because they are not something I would generally choose for myself. Its amazing what you can achieve when you step outside your comfort zone. Yes, I need to do a lot more of this for myself. 

So stay tuned - time to spread my wings and grow creatively. :)

I love flower clusters and butterflies. They make a page look so pretty, soft and feminine. Yes,e even with lots of grey, and bold colours, a page can still be soft - it's all about the details. 

Do you recognise the paper? I'm trying to use up some of my vintage stash - this is My Mind's Eye, from quite a few years ago. 

Thought I would share the Inspiration Board with you - don't forget to pop on over to the D-Lish Blog, right HERE, to join the fun. 

Cheers and happy crafting, xxx

Heart And Soul...And A Little Cruising...

Life is just too busy, and there are not enough hours in the day. Seriously, we moved into this house at the end of January, and I still have more than fifty boxes to unpack. Don't judge, lol!!! I'm a scrapbooker who used to own an online store, so I have HEAPS of scrap stuff still packed away. Maybe by the end of the year I will get through it all? Yeah, don't hold your breath. ;-) 

It doesn't help that I just spent two weeks teaching on a cruise ship. I really don't feel like unpacking anything now. Yes, I spent most of April cruising around New Zealand and teaching scrapbook lessons aboard the Celebrity Solstice. It was fun apart from the rough seas and seasickness. Blah!!! Want to see some photos? 

Did I mention how beautiful New Zealand was? I'd love a house on the hill, just like this. <3 p="">

Glorious sunsets. 

The Land Of The Long White Cloud. 

Yes, we are definitely going back, and will take the children with us next time. I only wish that our next cruise is longer as there is so much to see and do. And the shopping in Wellington is AWESOME, so you need a full day (or two) there. 

And while I was away, my first DT blog post went live over on the D-Lish blog. Yep. Right here

This was my creation for my blog post. There are lots more photos on the blog, so if you want to check them out, just pop over here. I had a great time playing with these Kaisercraft papers, and have decided to turn this layout into a kit for purchase. This kit will be available for sale from the 27th April, and it will be two layouts for $25, with full instructions. Check back then for photos and details. 

I have actually decided to try and release a minimum of two kits a month. So check back on the 12th and 27th of the month for kit releases. 

Thanks for stopping by today, and here's to having a scrappy good time!!!

Cheers and hugs, xxx
