 Hello there!
I'm over so time to get back into home mode.
It's 26th January-Australia Day today -the middle of summer and the sun isn't shining for all us Melbourne Aussie's who like to get out and have BBQ's or go to the beach and enjoy the day. It's cold and chilly but the good news is just a few more days and school starts again....'YAHOO'..... I'm sure many of you might just feel the same way. Today I'm sharing a summer layout of when 2 of my children were younger.

Italian perfection!

Hi there bloggers,
I hope you all had a Wonderful and Happy Christmas Day!
For today I thought it was time to put the kids photo's aside and get scrapping the holidays' before I forget the names of places I visited .I'm hopeless and always say when I go away I will keep a journal and note of photo's but I'm just too busy discovering when I'm there.
This time I'm sharing a layout I created with a photo from Venice Italy.
 I called this Find Neverland because if you ever go or have been to Venice, it's a place that you will find you never want to leave.....I can't wait to go back soon I hope!

Under Dreamy Skies!

Hello and welcome friends and bloggers,
I have been waiting  and wanting this 'DIVINE'  latest Paper and Elements collection  'Destination Unknown'   and yes I finally have it...YAhooooo!!!!!!!
It is created by DeeDee Catron owner of UmWowStudio and created for 7 dots Studio and I'm sure you will agree - isn't it just totally awesome!
So here is the first of many layouts I intend to create with this Collection and the amazing UmWowStudio chipboard to match!
'Under Dreamy Skies'
To create dimension behind photo I have cross hatched strips of paper and then
 lightly covered with gesso, sprayed with Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst Sprays and then I have water brushed LSG Magicals to all the edges to highlight some of the weaving and also the texture paste stencilled dots in background.

Hello there,
I have just got back from the 'Scrapping with the Stars' Retreat where I managed to take everything but the kitchen sink - get creativity block - lost my mojo completely - minimal sleep - 2 hangover mornings - and came home with total of one layout completed.....(to be shown at a later date)!
The positive is that the Retreat was awesome and fun.
So for today I'm blogging to share a DT layout I have created with a favourite picture of my daughter Mackenna. I can't believe I have gone pink and girly - believe me that's rare for me these days.
I have used some favourite beautiful
products to feature on my layout!
'Dance in the Moonlight'

Other Products -  Lindy's Stamp Gang - Magicals, Prima Wood elements and the 'NEW' 7 Dots Studio Paper and Tags -Thoughts Keeper.
Thanks for dropping by the Blog, see you again soon! G.

Hello and Welcome!

Today I want to share with you something special I made just for me. With 3 children I'm forever scrapping and creating projects centered around them, so I wanted to break away from this and make something smaller and personal........ For my latest UmWowStudio CT creation I decided to create an UmWowStudio Tunnel Tag book.
The idea comes from a quote that I heard over 20 years ago and I always think of.....for me it's about taking flight and reaching!

Set your sights high, the higher the better. Expect the most wonderful things to happen, not in the future but right now. Realize that nothing is too good. Allow absolutely nothing to hamper you or hold you up in any way.

Thanks for dropping into the blog.... stay a while and I hope you enjoy the rest of my 'Journey'!
