Groovie January

I just realise I've never posted the January challenge over at Groovie Covers (I will get back to normal soon - hopefully:))! You have two days left to play along;0

This is the book cover to use as inspiration............................

..............and this is my take on the cover. The printed paper is soooo beautiful, it doesn't need much else to create a beautiful LO! I've added some pearls, lace, cut-outs and sanded my photo to draw the eye across the page. I love the subtle colours - goes perfectly with the "shy" look on the photo:)

Hope you feel inspired to play!

Happy scrappin'

Little Red Riding Hood

Wowee, I hope if the year starts with such a bang it will keep going:). I'm back to "almost" normal after the school year's start and will hopefully be scrapping again soon!! I have a few projects up my sleeve but will post them as we go along:)

The Scraphouse launched a competition last year for their 2nd Birthday bash. In your pack was a range of prints and some plains and the challenge was to create a double page with a heading using only the paper provided!! NO other embellishments, NO ribbon, NO buttons - only stamps and punches.

I created this LO with paper ribbon strips, punched circle flowers and stamped a title for my page. I absolutely adore these photos of my little one playing with my winter coat!!

The LO won me a cool voucher to spend in Ria's lovely shop:)

Shake of the holiday dust (I know some of you are still on holiday in spirit!) and get scrappin'

Funky photos

Woweeeee! When the year starts it definitely takes no prisoners!! With our business the school year-end and start is absolute chaos so you'll have to excuse the lack of LO's this time round:) - I'm sure you understand;).

These are some of the holiday pics from the pool at Granpa and Granny's house. We celebrated Christmas there and this is one of the priviliges of living in South Africa over Christmas! We do not have a beautiful white Christmas but we have OODLES of sunshine and stunning summer days!!

These photos reminded me of some wishes i had........

....may you JUMP at every opportunity that comes your way (and may they jump at you!!!!) with total exuberance and expecting the best..................................

.................and may you receive LOADS of soppy kisses!!

Hope you make the most wonderful memories!

Happy scrappin'
