My Prima Envy.

Hello all, It's a warm and sunny day here in Melbourne today and I'm determined to get off my computer shortly and go and create a layout or two.

The old saying 'green with envy' was my thought for this layout..........because I'm certainly envious of all things Prima. Incase your wondering - yes the overlay is all handcut - many many hours of cutting to say the least, and to add to my madness this is the second time I have cut it for a layout (used in completely different styles).
The background paper, flowers, flocked rub-on negative and trinket is Prima. The title is Kaiser and the tag is K & Co.

I adore this photo of my daugther Mackenna. I have used the photo last year for a class so just had to use again for my/her personnal album. The sunshine awaits! BYE!

Some rest needed!


Paperific was a huge success...............but I'm sure glad it's over. I was unlucky enough to get a severe case of the dreaded flu a couple of days B4. Then 3x 12 hour +++ days and the loss of a voice several times each day mean't that I was in total collapse today. Alas, with 3 young children missing mum I wasn't able to get much rest today again.

Can't help myself though...just had a need to add a little post here. These are some of the display items that I made for Twiddleybitz at Paperific.

Twiddleybitz floating frame

The centre is acrylic - I just love this as it adds so much more dimension. I have also added the 3 different sizes of Twiddleybitz Skeleton trees at alternate levels to create more dimension.

My own little stick Angel Conductor at the park. I have been holding onto this photo for over a year just waiting for the right embellishments to create a page. I'm happy and he loves it.flowers and all!
Twiddleybitz chicken Mesh, I can't help myself this is my favourite product at the moment...I really have to stop myself from wanting to use it on everything. I can always get away with using different Prima flowers though.

How cute is this little maestro from the toddler border. Finally this is the 12x12 shadow box I made to keep my layout in. The weekend was so busy that I forgot to get a picture with the layout inside it. Too late now as It's already on the other side of Australia! I think I'll go now and dream of being there also........goodnight!

A little more than a week away!

O.K. I'm talking about Paperific! Fri 26th - 28th Aug. Melbourne showgrounds.

Come and call in and say a big hello at the Scrappy Hollow stand. I'll be there again creating some fantastic make and takes.

I will also be at the Twiddleybitz stand showing all the Sensational products on offer and all the amazing creations from the very talented DT!

This is one of the creations I have made for the show. It's the Twiddleybitz Gingerbread house! Yes I did say Gingerbread house-your not reading that incorrectly. I couldn't resist and decided to completely adapt the house and make it ..... 'Not so Christmas'!!!!

It's a little -far more grungy than I would normally do, a far cry from the norm of shabby vintage! A change in style is often like a breath of fresh air......reviving!

The cover story!

Hey there!

As this is my first cover with Scrapbook Creations I thought I would show some close ups! The challenge SC set was Prima - and anyone who knows me definately knows how much I 'love' Prima. I could almost open up my own shop with the stock I have!

Beautiful Gap

My daughter Mackenna has been carrying the mag around the house every day for a month now....mmm I think she likes it?

The wonderful photo was taken by the very talented photographer Clair Bremner.

Now my son has set me the task of getting him on a cover........Boys layouts -Not so easy!

I might have to do a mock up and hope that keeps him satisfied???

a vintage OZ!

Hi, it's been a little while - I know!

Sorry dear blog, but as all hard working scrappers know......sometimes commitments have to come first. I also got a little lost looking at all the NEW CHA products.

Here's a few sneaks of my class next week.

It's featuring some fantastic new Twiddleybitz chipboard pieces and I also wanted to play with the new G45 Wizard of Oz papers. So I have come up with a little Vintage and a lotta Oz!

that's it for today...back to the yellow brick road-scrap table!
