"Quality Time"...

Have just spent the last three days at Brendy's house in the Marlborough Sounds. Fantastic time with her doin what we both love to do!!! The weather has not been the best, so have not had
to carry any guilt at all re sitting on backside scrappin and chattin etc...
Have had a productive time, completing three layouts, flower making etc etc etc.
Also brought my "take" on the March challenge at Scottie's Crafts
with me that needed completion, have achieved this as well.
So the challenge set was, use two items of PRIMA products,,, I used one piece of their gorgeous stitched paper, lots of cutting around the flowers, and then mounted this to another piece of PP. I "masked " a serviette and added this as the next layer. Made a slit in the top piece of prima to make room for my "hidden journalling" tag... I also cut some hearts from another piece of prima specialty stitched paper, added some prima flowers and pearls to finish with, liking this lots!!!
Back home tomorrow, reality check,,, work!!!

Back Home For A HOLIDAY !!!

Just as the title says, yep I am back at home/work for a holiday. Great time in Wellington, but boy, whoever said that entertaining/amusing etc etc, and all that goes with a six and a two year old, was a "piece of cake", has got to be kidding!!! Happy that I had my three while in late teens early twenties, am sure I had heaps more energy then. But hey would not be without the grandies and it is not as though it is 24/7...

Took this pic of Caitlin while we were out for a fluffy and a coffee, and have completed the L/O for Southern Girls challenge, "Use Flowers". PP's use are "My Minds Eye", various flowers for deco...

Social Wee Butterflies!!! And Gorgeous Too!!!


I just so love the Webster's PP's. Don't have to add a lot
to have a completed L/O, if you don't want too...
Layout is of my two grandaughters, Emily and Caitlin, both to the left of

Really looking forward to the week ahead, off to Wellington

a scrapbooking friend from the Hutt.
I'm sure will return with heaps more pics to work with,

An old school pic!!!

Posted by Picasa
Have had this photo sorted and sitting around for a while, decided to try and do something with it this morning...
Am "Ok" with the result,PP used is Kaisercraft, "What A Hoot". Have used up a few "scraps" which is always good, and used leaves cut for me on girlfriend's Silhouette.

Have the rest of today and tomorrow off work, so hope to achieve a little more

To "fellow" crafters/scrapbookers out there, have a good weekend, and to all in Canterbury who have been affected, traumatised, etc, etc, by the recent earthquake, I know our thoughts, prayers and the very best of wishes are with you all...
Go the red and blacks.
