 Hello there,

How are things with you? I think Summer is pushing its way in with us, another very warm day here today..

I have been working on a layout for a few days, popping in and doing a bit in between other stuff.. and I have it finished.. it is for the challenge over at What's in the Bickie Tin which is to use 

Purple and Grey,  a button and a Border punch, 

and in my travels around Challenge land I came across the challenge  #337 for the C.S.I. Challenge on Facebook or C.S.I. Color, Stories, Inspiration on their BLOG 

which is 

which fits the colors on my layout.. The challenge on Whats in the Bickie Tin are purely for fun and i think the challenges over on C.S.I. are simply amazing, all the clues and colors are so well put together..

anyhoo.. my layout..

a couple of closer views.

Scrapmatts Creating for November.

 Hello there..

How are things with you? At the moment the weather here is very hot.. a little hint of summer not too far away perhaps..  but a good opportunity to stay indoors and do some creating..  well I hope so!!

I am just popping up my creating that I have done for my Design Team work for Scrapmatts.. I am still shaking my head that we are half way through November.. crazy..  anyhoooo.. 

I have created two layouts this month.. you can check out the details and closeups over on the SCRAPMATTS BLOG POST HERE!!!!  

The first layout I created was using a photo of my Son who learnt to play the drums when he was in High School..  The photo was captured during one of his many jam sessions and I reckon it is a fantastic moment because I know how much he moves when he is playing the drums.. Not sure who took the photo but as with a lot of the photos I use I 'borrowed' it from facebook!!!

Live every moment..

and the second layout has a photo of my Daughter when she visited the Brisbane Ekka a few years ago.. She may live in the city but she has country in her heart!! She was able to get really close to some cows as they were resting in their stalls.. 

Love is kind.

(I do love those cute little cow chippies!!!)

Thanks for coming by and checking out my blog. It seems to be that not many blog these days, but I still like to as it is my record of my scrapping.. And thanks to those who leave me a comment, it is so nice to read your words and know you visited.. 

Take care.. I hope life is being kind to you.. 

Until next time..

KRAFT+ - November.. It's a bugs life!!

 Hello there!

I hope this finds you well..  and wow here we are in November already.. What a year this has been!!

The new challenge for KRAFT+  for November is up and running and what a great challenge it is this month.. 


A bugs life!! What inspires you about this mood board??  You can pop over to the 

KRAFT+ BLOG HERE!!!  and check out the design Teams take on this challenge for some inspiration.. Lots of different takes, there might be something that gives you some motivation!!

Well when I saw this I first thought what can I create for this?? I had a look in my papers and found some really old papers from Kaisercraft and thought I would use them on my layout.. I found a photo of my son when he was a little boy and away I went..

some closer views.


I fussy cut some of the bugs from the papers and lifted them up with foam tape for some dimension.


And while I am not 100 percent sure sammy snail is a bug he fits in that category of creepy crawlies in my opinion!!

Cute as a bug!


Perhaps you have these old papers still in your stash, a good time to get them out and use them for this challenge.. or you might have some other buggy type papers or photos you can use.. You can pop your layout up over on the KRAFT+ Community page on Facebook here!!  

Thanks for dropping by and thanks for the lovely comments that you leave me.. I appreciate each one..

I hope your November is off to a great start, 

take care!

until next time..
