A Late Scrap the Boys Share

Well, I nearly got the November Scrap the Boys challenge completed in time! This time of year is just madness for trying to do things just for myself I tell you....

Anyway, I still did get it done, even if it wasn't on time!

The challenge at Scrap the Boys for November was to scrap the softer side of your boy/man, and as soon as I saw this I knew what photo that I wanted to use. It was one of my Liam from one morning before school with our old boy cat Rhubarb in his lap while Pearl the cockatiel sat on his shoulder!


I played with an older Fancy Pants collection for this one, it had great boy colours! A bit of stenciling on the background, both with ink and texture paste, and I just love the coloured corrugated card that came in the collection.


Well that's all for now.

Thanks for stopping by.

D-lish Sharing

My posts for November went up at D-lish recently so I thought I would share them here too!


This one was a little different for me. Still growing on me! But lots of great D-lish goodies to spy!


I love how this turned out, but how can you go wrong when you start with such a pretty photo!


And I loved playing with some of the Cyber crop challenges here, firstly the colour challenge - red, yellow, black and also the inclusion of wood veneer that has been coloured.  Oh and I just have to say what a lovely young man Lincoln Lewis is!

Thanks for stopping by!

Exciting News to Share

Well, I have to tell you that I have been holding onto a secret for a few months now. And let me tell you it has been hard! It is the sort of secret that you want to shout from the treetops. Well, now I can share. If you know me through Facebook, then you will already have heard, but for everyone else I can finally reveal that I have been chosen to be on the Creative Team for Scrapbooking Memories Magazine!

For the next 12 months I have a two page article in SM, My regular feature will be the "How to - Graphic" so make sure you keep an eye out for the first issue in the new year, it will be the one after the Masters release!


I feel so honoured to have been chosen to do this, and hopefully I will inspire some of you with my articles!

Thanks for dropping by.

December White With 1

Can you believe it is a new month already?! Not only that we are well and truly into countdowns now, for Christmas and New Year and end of school!

But a new month means a new colour over at WW1 and this month is great, it is Paloma, which is what colour I hear you ask?! Well it is a warm grey, but good for sophisticated Christmas pages, or in my case Halloween!



The creative team was very lucky to receive some gorgeous goodies from Charm's Creations to use also. These goodies are so easy to use and Charm makes them in all sorts of gorgeous colours too, so make sure you check out her handmade goodies here.


As usual I have managed to add in a few D-lish Scraps goodies onto my page too. There are always something to find that I can use that comes from D-lish!

Besides Charm's Creations we have some other lovely sponsors this month, so make sure you go and check them out too! You just never know what you might find!

Scrapping Bits

Make sure you go and check out work from the other creative team members too, I am sure you will find some inspiration to scrap with Paloma! WW1 December Link

D-lish Cyber Crop

Last weekend was this months Cyber Crop over at D-lish Scraps and I was lucky enough to set one of the challenges for the weekend.


And a full scale copy of the sample:


I just love the look of an oversized photo on a page, it really makes a spectacular page!

That is all to share for today, although I must say that I feel like I have been scrapping up a storm lately, but I just can't share most of it yet! But I can say I have some cool news to share soon that I can't wait to share with you!

Thanks for stopping by, until next time.

Second Post for Imaginarium Designs

So, half way through November already. Just crazy really! It is always like this at this time of the year so I shouldn't be surprised but it always is exhausting.

Thought I would just pop in and share my next post that is up over at Imaginarium Designs, you can see the whole post here. Also they are having a Design Team call if you love working with all kinds of cool chipboard. It closes on 30th November and details are on their blog.

I think this is one of my favourite pages that I have created so far.



I added little seed beads to the chipboard to give the feeling of the foam and bubbles on the waves, love how it turned out!

And I had a ball creating the title with the drawing and cutting features on my Silhouette. So much fun!

Thanks for stopping by,
