Scrapping can be so soothing....

It sure is for me...with this sad happening surrounding us friends, I got home from work on Monday & just got into a couple of LO's...and it was great...the mindfullness helped me a little bit...

This LO is celebrating friendship & in a mono theme for ScrapBoutique as set by Amanda, & it is of my hubby & daughter...great friends & confidents to each other!!

This LO is really a bit of fun, playing around with Manon's challenge.  This is a lovely wedding cake, from a nephews recent wedding...fabulous hey!!

So til now time, do take care

Love Deb xx

So unbelievably sad....

But such is life...isn't it?

A good friend of ours, one of our great mates from the Roving Ravers died following a horrific fall from a workplace roof, last Saturday...we just cant believe it!

So Vale - Bob Dawson....what a great man...he was so full of life, was a top bloke!

Always flying kites....

Jade & I saw a beautiful group of fascinators (wonder what a group of fascinators is called?? - a bevy??) recently...and I decided to have a go at making one.  This is for a special race day for Jade & I really hope that she does like the finished result.....

I used a small headpiece from Spotlight, along with some spotted soft netting, feathers, & flowers. Sewed & hot glue gun & used my Kenwood Chef bow as a 'head' & voila!! It is to sit at the front & side of the head....really hope it looks good on!

Take care, Deb xxxxxxxx

Just been scrapping & card making....

Not been 100% of late...really hoping it isn't glandular fever or the like....where has my energy gone...evaporated into the ether!!!  But still other than resting, I come up to my scrap room & make a card or a LO, or check out the amazing blogs...my heavens the gals are so creative & clever!!

LSBS had a Weekend Warrior using the new header on the website as the inspiration...so made a little card, from Sassafras Lass papers & lovely embellies.

Also worked on a LO of Pete & I at our vow renewal last year for LSBS Seasoned Scrapper - Winter 3.  Nic's inspiration was The Door song & lyrics 'Wintertime Love'....

Had loads of fun with Prima papers & some fabric beads.....I was lucky enough to be awarded a HM for this one....yay!

And for the SS Winter 4 - I have made a quick card using the 'winter warm' colours that was Deanne's inspiration...titled For You Dear....

Now off for another rest....

A quiet restful moment

I so loved this recent photograph of Pete taken at the end of the breakwall at Apollo Bay, as the sun was going down, that I used it for ARTastics August  LO.  The inspiration was Claude Monet's beautiful & calming 'Sunset' & I just loved altering the cardstock with paints & bubble wrap, & making a black organza flower to place at the bottom of the Twiddleybitz chippie reed.

I am so lucky to love scrapbooking...what a wonderful lifestyle it is!

Take care, love Deb xxxxxxxxx

Fabulous Crate Paper Kit !

Loved this beautiful Crate Paper kit from Scrapville...and so enjoyed following Melinda's sketch & worked on a LO of our beautiful daughter when she was a tiddley girl!

Then made a card for my lovely friend, but I must admit I jigged Melinda's sketch to suit myself, but just love it!!  Bit of hand cutting here!!

Keep out of that wind!!

Love Deb xxx
