I usually don't get to play with pink and purple lay outs. That's what I get for having three boys! Luckily I have a few nieces that I can "borrow". When I saw this beautiful Basic grey paper I just had to get it!

The chipboard border was made with the cuttlebug, the clock is Heidi Swapp, copper stickles and the paper is by Basic Grey (eva)

Thanls for looking!

so this is christmas....

Ok.. so the temperature today has been pretty wonderful here, sunshine all day long! Great weather to concentrate on a christmas workshop!!!!

My friend Anne and I had a pretty good idea of what we were going to make and we are just thrilled with the outcome! Little bits and pieces will still be added, so we won't give it all away!

We're teaching this workshop in a huge workshoproom, all day long! We've done these big workshops there before and it's always so much fun. If you would like to register for this workshop just hope on over to our scrapangels site and send us an email.

Thanks for looking!

Sweet @ 6

I've been completely caught up in preparing workshop packages! At the moment I think I have about a hundred ready to go.. and still more to do! It's all fun though. I hurt my back in the beginning of the week while walking with my grandmother who's in a wheelchair. Sidewalks are much higher than you would think! It's staring to feel a little better now, so I'm hopeful!
Eventhough I'm up to my ears in our Christmas workshop I have a lay out to share.

My oldest son (6) refuses to look normal in a picture. I've now started to bribe him, to smile normal just for a few shots. Too bad for him he had to be born in a scrappy family!
This shot was taken in the beginning of summer and I've used it before, but I love that missing tooth smile!

I was inspired by Tracey's lay out (RUNNING WITH SCISSORS) and used a die cut paper I had to make a new one that fitted my pages.
The paper is SEI, loads of Ranger distress ink and check out the gorgeous pin I found!

Thanks for looking and have a fabulous weekend!

These pictures were taken on Thomas' first day of pre-school.

He loves to paint and color there (for some reason not at home??). His teacher was kind enough to pass these pics on to me..

The papers are from dreamstreet, I thought the green color was a nice change. The flowers are from petaloo, The swirl was made out of foam with a sizzix swirl. The envelope was also cut with the sissix, inside is a little note I wrote for Thomas, I won't embarress him (or me) by sharing it with the world!!

Thanks for looking!

New inspiration!

I'm so happy in my new scrap room... I know where everything is and I can reach it.. (I used to just pick from the top of the pile...) pre-cutting workshops today..instead I finaly scrapped a lay out of my ds with his little friend. Look at those cute little chubby cheeks!

So for this lay out I used Bo Bunny paper, from the beautiful life collection, thickers for the title, pearl ex, loads of ranger distress inks, heidi swapp mask, rub ons from me and my big ideas, die cuts are also from bo bunny. I made the scalloped edge using my fiskars punch (whoohoo I finaly have one!)

Thanks for looking!

canvas in vintage style

I've moved out of my old scrap domain and into a new one this week. Which translates in to me wallpapering and rearanging Thomas' furniture in to my old office and I now have a room with more storage.
I've accumulated so much stuff with all the workshops that I'm teaching for scrapangels, that the room was about to burst!

Yesterday was spend mostly with pre cutting a huge workshop we're giving on lacation.
So I haven't been doing any scrapping this week. But I can show you (a part) of a vintage canvas I made, that we'll also be giving as a workshop.

Thanks for looking,
