Happy Being Me

I asked my hubby to take a photo of me for the blog and I got all these pictures. Not quite what I wanted, so I decided to do a page "Happy Being Me".

Happy Being Me

I must say it feels a bit strange doing a page on myself. I'm normally the one taking photo's - but it was fun!

Gift Idea for Valentines Day

Valentines Day is around the corner – so here is a gift idea for your loved one.

This is great for hubby’s desk or study at home. Make him a photo cube desktop calendar with a matching paper holder - the paper holder also has place for his pens.

Valentines Day No.1

I asked my hubby - If I had to make you something for valentines day what would you want?

His answer – The photo cube calendar, but I’d really like a brag book of us & the kids, and I will treasure this forever. So guess what he is getting – a brag book.

What about gifts for the girls?
My suggestion for the men out there is go to your local scrapbooking store for advice and a selection of goodies for the perfect gift.

What Would You Use As The Page Title

Kruz (my son) got a skateboard from his Grandpa! In this photo he looks very pleased with himself - all I see are injuries!!!


What would you use as your page title for this pic. All that comes to mind is DANGER BOY or BRAT!

Today She's 8 - With Pocket

Today she's 8

Shanice's (my daughter) birthday was on the 7/11/08 - it has taken me a while to do her birthday pages, but I am glad it took a while because I just love this new paper we just got in stock.

I decided to use a pocket on the page because I had to do some journaling about what she thought she was getting - very funny story.

Here is the cupcake card template for card 1 & 2. If you look at the first card you can see the flap stuck on the back of the cupcake. I hope you can use this and make your own cupcake card from looking at the pictures.

Make Beautiful Cards With Your Scraps

I made this card using scraps of paper, tracing paper & some body art.


How I made the flower – I traced the stem onto tracing paper and then added paper flowers.

The Frame – I used a piece of cardboard to cut out the frame and then gave it a coat of green & orange craft paint

My butterfly comes out of a body art pack.

Altered Mini Filo Fax


All the ladies that saw this little Filofax in the shop fell in love with it. I know there are quite a few ladies wanting the little Filofaxes but unfortunately the place where we found them has sold out. So I cannot get them in stock.

Apparently Waltons stocks them and someone mentioned that you might just find them at the Flea Markets. Hope YOU find them, I will also keep looking.
