echo park

I'm just loving the Christmas collections "everybody loves Christmas" and "wintertime" from Echo Park, fun and funky papers will be looking out for new collections in 2011. I've never really been a one for Christmas layouts but these papers really inspired me along with all the fabby creations on the Echo Park Facebook page

Heres my lastest creations.....not a big fan of stickers but loved these bright and cheerful ones.

review of 2010

This year I haven't been very creative not many layouts done but will create a My Top 5 layouts of the year. Towards the end of year I got a few layouts done with Kirsty's Wednesday Night scrapping with facebook, next year I promise to get involved in more challenges on the blogs.........let me know you have a favourite challenge you follow.

The first one was created with one of favourite paper ranges of 2010 from Pink Paislee "Bayberry collection"
I used a sketch from Inspired blueprints blog

2nd one was completed using a kit from Sarah's cards, using "vintage poppy papers from Lily bee" these papers were also a new find for 2010.................will be looking out for other collections in 2011. Love the layout, created using a pencil line sketch, but think the journalling need a bit of tweeking

 the 3rd created using another pencil line sketch and papers from a Sarah card kit featuring bo bunny flutterby papers. This layout was well out of my comfort zone.

 4th is a bit fun and funky......using a sketch from Kirsty Wiseman and papers from Paper dolls collection by Crate Papers.

5th features another sketch from pencil lines papers from a kit from "my scrapbook nook" my minds eyes "so sophie" collection

be back tomorrow with a couple more layouts that I have completed recently.......

wedding card

Well now just 9 days to go and still struggling to get pressies sorted, hopefully will wrap what little I've got today, after walking pooch in the rain (tipping down here, at least its not snow at moment, but I want hold me breathe as I know its on its way), and then a visit to hairdressers ( I'm not a great one for hairdressers, always go in looking for a change and always come out with just a trim) hopefully today I'm going to brave, although I love the length don't want anything too short...............but a change is what I need.

A few months ago I met an uber talented lady, called Kim that runs the most fabulous cake business called "love cake", pop over to her website and see some of her scrummy creations...........and yes they taste delightful too. She asked me to create a card she could send out with her wedding cake orders..........this is what I created, very simple but she loved them.

10 days to go........

Oh my poor poor neglected blog, just dont seem to have any time or energy to get creative at seems to be passing me by a hundred miles a hour. Well its 10 days to the big day, and house isn't ready, no shopping I'm getting more stressed as the days goes by, one year I will be organised and not super stressed. Last night I wrote Christmas cards, so thats one thing off the list, and the list is long, very long. Think I'm going to be a busy bee tomorrow on my day off.

here is a Christmas card I have made for family this year, very simple design..........a very old "anita's" stamp, and some paper from ki memories, added a bit of sparkle with stickles.
