All about me:)

A friend had a bday last year - we were helping to set up the venue when I decided to alter the mood and give everyone a laugh!  My little girl got the hair and glasses in a package from "far-away" Grandpa and Grandma - I found it in the car after dropping her at Granny for the night.................just what I needed:)

We all had a good laugh and it was fun to do something seriously silly for a change!

I loved layering different elements and papers in the page - I wasn't scrapping at home so created all the ribbon and elements with the paper on hand!  Little fuzzy cut birdies in the corner ties the page together and the funky colours and elements suit the photo perfectly!

Why don't you capture a silly moment and scrap it so your children can one day have a laugh - even when it's at your expense:)

Happy scrappin'

I've decided to bake a cake for my Mom this Mother's day!!  I also decided to try something new and challenging!

I've never covered a cake, never used Royal Icing and certainly never piped before (especially not black on white!).

In the end I really LOOOVE my cake!  I even used the dry brush embroidery technique on my cake, piped swirls and created faux stitch lines with piped dots on my top tier.  Everything on the cake was made by my own hands - even the beautiful flowers! - okay, I'll stop ringing my own bell ;p

The best part - I have the perfect black, white and pink patterned paper for the photos:)

Happy Mother's Day and happy scrappin'

I love the versatility of a single circle punch!!

Simply punching circles from your print and cutting in halve will add a lovely border accent to any card or project (especially if you didn't pack your scallop border punch for the class:))

The font running both vertically and horizontally adds interest to the card and draws the eye to read some of the sentiments!

Try using your punches for scrappy things they were not really designed to do!
