Life Changes....

Wow, july 19th my last post. i have had a major scrapping break and some major life changes in that time. I have missed scrapping a lot and am looking forward to getting back into things. A few of you know that i had been having some major anxiety and panic attack issues early on this year. I am not someone who likes to talk a lot about my personal life so didnt talk much about it at all. Its seems so amazing to me that i now am so happy with life and loving every single day. I now wake of a morning and happily wonder what the day will bring. I look forward and enjoy every second of life. Im no longer just letting days slip by but am excited about what they will bring.

In this time i have been absent i have seperated from my husband, and have started a new life with my new partner, glenn, who has brought so much love, joy and passion into my life, that i never thought i would have. We have brought a house together which have very quickly become a 'home' to us and our children. So i am now in the midst of setting up my new scrap space and looking forward to seeing where my scrapping will take me now.

I do promise now more regular updates as well as some scrapping!!

Have a great day

Some layouts!!!

Hi. Ok i know its been a while. Have been really slack on the scrapping front lately, but did manage these couple on the weekend. And i am actually scrapping at the moment as well. Lack of sleep does not really help with the concentration.

Anyway, this first one is from a sketch over at wicked princesses.

And this is done from stuck?! first sketch of the month. And yes i did realize i had a spelling mistake in my title as i was loading it up and have fixed it now, but couldnt be bothered reloading. Lol.

Hope you are keeping warm wherever you are and i wont promise to be back soon this time cause i might jinx myself. Lol. (But i may be...)

Thanks for stopping by

Back again!!!

Ok, so im back again. Twice in one day!!! i hope you have all enjoyed your sunday?? We have had a pretty cruisy one. I cleaned a pile of clothes from my cupboards that were too big for me!! Such a good feeling.....and tomorrow i am tossing them, never to be seen again(on me anyway!!!)

I have some stuff to share with you. This is another she art and it is one i done of my dd makayla. Now as much as she loved it, she was dissapointed that it didnt have her best friend in it with her, so now i am told i have to do another. Lol. Lucky i like doing them. Hayden also wants me to do one of him, i will see how i go with a boy, and he wants a bombers jumper on, with goal posts in the background!!! Nothing too hard???No pressure!!!!Lol.

Now i have to say im not particularly over the moon about my layouts ive got to show, ive done some ones i like that i can show you next week. But the whole point of scrapping is to record your memories, and i really dont want to get too caught up in every layout having to be a perfect masterpiece!! Dont get me wrong, i love to put a lot of work in some of my layouts and try to push myself to try new things, and techniques but sometimes you just want to do a few quick layouts, for the fun of it!! And here they are..

This one i done from the sketch at purple pumpkin, and it has a couple of sams spotty buttons on there..

This was a manufactures challenge at savvy...

this was a pencilinnes sketch.....

And this is a scrap the boys challenge...

Have you seen the new additions to our DT at show us your stuff!!! What do you think??

Thanks for stopping by

Ive enjoyed being back on my blog again!

New creations..

I am kinda excited because blogger has finally let me back on my blog!! I was really pulling my hair out trying to load in. So this is my first post since the start of a bad blogger..LOL.

I havent done a lot of scrapping this month, i have just photographed my work for the month and will hopefully get to load later. What i have been doing though is a little bit of mixed media and she art!!

I started this journal early this month to practice art journalling and try out some techniques. I was inspired by a class i took over at big picture, by emily falconbridge..

Then i decided to give this she art a go. Lol. These are my first 3 and i have another here finished to load as well. This one is my fav out of the 3.

This was my first attempt..

and here is another.....

anyway i will be back very soon, if blogger lets me as i have more to share and a couple of challenges i have done to load.

Thanks for stopping by

Happy Easter!!!

Hi everyone, how was your easter?? We had quite a different one this year as my parents are travelling around australia so they were not here. We usually go to there place for one of mums yummy roasts. I was going to cook our own but then chris decided to take the kids to the speedway, so a quick leftover meal was in order!! Oh well i did get a couple of hours peace:) Although hayden kept saying all day, 'it dosent feel like easter, cause we arnt at nan and pops'

We also went canoeing!! Yes you read right. CANOEING!! For those of you that know me, know that i have been resisting this ever since chris got his canoe last year. I dont like the water much, and honestly the thought of it just scared the shit out of me!!! So the whole 4 of us donned some life jackets and headed down the river. It wasnt too bad, my arms are sore now, but at least a burned off my little bit of easter chocky!! The only problem was (promise you wont laugh), i fell into the water getting out of the damn canoe!! Yes everyone thought it was hilarious!!!

Anyway i have a few more layouts to share with you. This one is from the get picky sketch..

this one is from a wicked princess sketch.......

this one is not a favourite but its for the 1,2,3 challenge...

this is a creative scrappers sketch.......

And this is the savvy sketch of the month.. I used some more of my pretty petals DT kit on this page. The flower and the birdy, and the banner. I loved them all and am sad now i have used them all!! I cant wait for next months kit now!!:)

Thanks for stopping by.....
