A Vintage view on Romance.

Hello Hello! Isn't life just so, so Hectic at this time of year and to top it off aren't kids so, so demanding at this time of year! I have been given numerous requests for Santa -which seem to change every few days mind you and I think they believe that Santa has millions. $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

I wish Santa could make time slow down so I can get all my Scrapbooking commitments finished B4 the big 25th day arrives. O.K. so Best I stop rambling and tell you about my upcoming next class.

December 4th - Prima Romantique Collection.

A class of '5 layouts' full of Stunning blooms, roses and shining leaves. Here's a view and sneak peak of some of the layouts.

I was asked the why?? about the title of this layout. My daughter MacKenna is blowing one of those weeds from the garden. when they fly in the air we call them 'fairies' but when my father was young he called them 'marching soldiers', hence "getting their marching orders"!
Sunshine and Lollipops

That's 4 so now I'm off to finish the last layout. BYE!!!!!!!

A shabby Christmas and sweet vintage!

Hi Everyone, I keep telling myself Christmas is approaching fast so hurry up and dig those old photo's out that have been waiting to be scrapped for years and get Cracking because B4 you kow it I'll have a whole lot more photo's from this year to add to the pile!

I have spent this past week creating a Christmas layout and some Vintage cards with some amazing and stunning Green Tara products.


Products: Green Tara - Satin Christmas shapes from Ribbon, Christmas bouquet, wreath- cut into pieces, white poinsettia, white flower spray and metal swirl.

The chipboard Frame and Christmas ornament are from Twiddleybitz. The frame has been made from a fence - cut and re-worked together with Tim Holtz crackle paint. Little birdy is from Prima. And now I have some Sweet and Romantic Vintage style cards made with Green Tara - Gingham and Organza ribbons, Roses, Poinsettia, Gardenia, Metal heart and corners, Silver spray and White Lace which has simply been dyed with coffee.

I love the gorgeous colours and various sizes of the Green Tara roses they are just wonderful for cards and layouts.
