A good corner to be in?

Hi there!

Like many parents I need to give my kids time out and so often put them in the naughty chair or corner. Although I have been told this really isn't a bad naughty corner and asked by several if they can they come over and sit there, it certainly works when your cousins are allowed to play and your stuck there for 30mins.

I have a 5 Websters & Twiddleybitz layout class on the 16th July at Scrappy Hollow, so here are some sneaks and full views of the layouts.

Even though I have two boys I don't often Scrap boys pages and for that I think my oldest son wants to put me in the N-corner!

To finish off a couple of layouts I could put photo's of them all together on!

This tired mum is off to get some sleep so I can get some scrapping done tomorrow with fresh eyes - last day of school tomorrow and that means not much chance for the next few weeks.

too late for the circus!

Hi There,

Another cold day in Melbourne which means I have an excuse to spend more time by the heating scrapbooking. My children love the circus and certainly love to clown around - the oldest Tarquinn-8 tells me they have plenty of time in life to be serious, so for now they will leave that to mum and dad.

Today I'm showing another Expo project, my Twiddleybitz - G45. Circus shadow box.

Twiddleybitz the Penny farthing bike and Victorian winged mirror.
As it is for this little man's room I didn't want to put to many items on it -as he loves to rip everything off so I took to layering the base paper!

My son Connaugh during a face painting session.

I will definately need to put it up high as to keep it intact.

and for today..................

Hello, hello!

A quick post today - it's the long weekend here in Australia and it's children time, so just one Expo reveal...........

'Twiddleybitz' Floating frame Shadow Box.

Featuring the 'NEW' scroll flourish frame and Flag banner!

I'm lucky to have a daughter who is a real girly, girl who just loves everything pretty
so Prima, designs-galore and K & Co worked perfect to suit!
Although girly she is also demanding and stubborn (like right now) so I'm off to spend some craft-scrapping time with her LOL! G!

A chipboard look at nature.........

Hi there! It's a cold Winters day here in Melbourne. The sun may be shining and the sky is a gorgeous cloudless blue, but it's still a chilly 14deg. outside.

As promised here is my 'Twiddleybitz' altered mini 'Nature' book that is at the Brisbane Scrapbooking Expo -which is on right NOW!

It'a a feast of Twiddleybitz, Prima, Pink Paislee, My minds eye, K & Co, Prairie Bird ribbons and Crafty secrets.

The back cover!

I'm not game to type much more as blogger has been torturing me all day and if another attempt at this post drops out, I won't have much of a temper or any patience left. To those of you at the Epo .....I sure hope you are enjoying it and drop by to the Twiddleybitz stand and say hello to everyone! G!

Just a few to show!

Hello there!

Slowly over the next few days I will finally show my 'Twiddleybitz' Brisbane Scrapbook Expo layouts and projects.

NO more sneak peaks, which by the way I really hate them - they are just nasty teasers.


This is the stunning 'NEW' Flourish overlay revealed for the first time at the Expo.

I have used lot's of different inks to try and give the chipboard a wrought iron -vintage look and have added some stunning recollections flowers that I bought in Michaels in New York. I have also altered the Twiddleybitz hanging clock and turned it upside down.

Sorry - Removed for Publication. Back Soon!


This is one of those rare occasions when my children are in a photo together. I have used 4 pieces of chicken mesh Chipboard, covered with various inks and then applied the Tim Holtz crackle paint. The vines are Prima, however I have coloured the flowers with Crafty Notions colour sprays.

Thanks for dropping by! Tomorrow I will be revealing my Altered Nature book so come on back for the full reveal! G!

Just a few more days to go!

Whhhooo! YEH!

I hate having to wait...........they say patience is a virtue, well I tell everyone my patience wears a little thin! Over the past week all I've seen is sneak peaks from Aussie Dt members attending or showing they're creations at the Brisbane Scrapbook Expo.

So these are my final sneaks and in a few more days I will be able to start showing everything complete!...... If I can get off everyone else's blogs that are showing the full reveals that is!


Twiddleybitz Circus shadow box.

Altered - Nature Mini book

The Pink Paislee Butterfly Garden Collection was perfect for this book! Well I haven't been able to see past it for a few weeks now!

So finally I say goodbye until a full Twiddleybitz reveal post in a couple of days!
