I know now dont fall out of your chairs......for those who know me its been quite sometime since I have scrapped...well scarpped anything that I have been partically fond of and willing to
But when I got my new Designer Kit from Country Papercraft i just couldnt help myself.  i love love love the paper range!!!  Its 'Gathering' by Authentique.  Now I am so far out of the loop nowadays with anything scrapping that I have honestly never heard of this company before..I know shocker right!!  But i just fell in love with the blues/browns/oranges and I am so NOT an orange person.

Anywho i have made two pages...yes thats right TWO with the kit so far and here they are.
First up is my favourite shot of my daughter.

And the second is of my youngest Flyn who is just such a damn dag!!

So there you go i still remember how to scrap...woot woot..who would have known!

Sketch time again....

Wowsers guys this is late and I have no one to blame but myself.  these past few days have been crazy crazy around here.
First up woke up thursday morning to find our frog had escaped from his tank.  looked everywhere, spent most of the day looking for him.  then had my brother who i dont get to see very often come visiting thursday night, and totally forgot to set this up to post.
then today got up looking for the frog again.  Mainly because we really missed him and wanted to find him and secondly because I didnt want him dying in the house somewhere...ewww.

So there you go my excuses for forgetting to post the new challenge over at Tickled Pink Stamp Challenges.

This week is a great one yet again, but then they are all pretty spesh!!!  We have a fabbo sketch for you and really really want to see you all joining in with us!!

Its time for Vintage......

*Warning picture heavy post*

Well I must say i am loving this weeks theme at Tickled Pink Stamps Challenge.
My favourite kind of theme....VINTAGE!!!

Now my creation this week is based on a card I saw on Monique Lokhorst's blog.  Monique runs it as a class where she lives in the Netherlands (i think).  I have tried to case her idea as I loved it.  Now not sure I have done it anywhere near how she has done hers but the style is similar.  Thanks Monique for the incredible inspiration.

I also want to aplogise for the terrible colouring of the photos, but had to take the pics late at night as the card was for my SIL's bday and I was running late with it so didnt get a chance to take photos in the daylight...sowwy...but I guess it adds to their vintage feel??   LOL...maybe!

Cant wait to see what you come up with for this fabulous theme!!

I would also like to enter into the following Challenges..

Digital tuesday challenge- Anything Goes (image is a digi)
Deep Ocean Challenge Blog - Vintage
Create Me Pink - at least 1 flower (mine has lots!)

Well its that time yet again...yes Time for another Bizzy Bec's Blog Challenge!!  Where do these months go??  I swear this year is flying past at record speed.

Anywho the challenge for this month at Bizzy Bec's is easy peasy....Circles!!!
Now you can have circle shapes, circles on your paper, buttons, circle pearls...circles where ever...just as long as we can see them!!

I have created a circle card with a circle tag and my paper has circles on it.  See easy peasy!!!

Time for a Christmas hop.....

Well i'm pretty sure this is the first Magnolia-licious Christmas All Year Long Blog Hop that I have joined in with this year...sad I know but my Maggies have unfortunately taken a bit of a back seat of late with all my DT work i have been doing and family time has taken a bit of a premium too.
Anywho with the arrival of my Fall kit and the yummy new Christmas MAggies in my hands I just had to join in this time.  I actually think this is the first one back after a summer hiatus anyways.

So if you have found your way here from Glendas blog you are on the right track!

i have used Ribbon Tilda, snowflake stamp (which is a bit hard to see) and title stamp from the new Sweet Christmas Dreams collection. I have kept my card really simple as I learnt from last year the bulky ones cost a fortune to post!!  LOL 

Tilda is coloured with copics.
the paper is My Minds Eye Lost and Found Christmas 6x6 pad.

Next on the hop is Monique's blog.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy the hop!!

A stitch here and there...

Well when I had the day off unexpectedly the other day i actually managed to get some crafting stuff done...yay!!  Felt so good.
Here is one of the things I managed to get done...a card for the Saturated Canary Challenge which this time round is asking for stitching.  Now my stitching is faux stitching as the sewing machine is in the other room and yada yada yada I couldnt be bothered going to get it lol....but its stitching none the less.

Its just another one of those things today which has gone either totally wrong or nowhere near how I intended it to be.
I wasnt going to actually share it with you all but I thought I would as I know people like to look at tragedy no matter how bad it
So here it is......sigh!  LOL
I wish you could see how it should have looked but that image is still in my head and not made from paper lol

Just wanting to share my other passion with you all

My other passion...well one of many lol is photography.  i am no pro but a long shot but I do like to dabble so this post is going to be quite heavy with some recent photos.
A friend of mine recently had a baby and I asked if i could take some photos of her sweet bubba.  Its always something i had wanted to do and never had a really decent camera when mine were this little.  Sweet MacKenna is 3 weeks old and he was the most perfect bubba.  Slept the whole time and almost let me do anything with him, except he insisted on having his arm out almost all ofthe
Here are a few of my favourites.

And here are a few of my tinlids from this weekend when we went to look at a friends old trucks that they had recently acquired.
