Renewing My Acquaintances.

I can't believe how long it is since I have been on my blog! I had trouble even getting into it as Google wanted to know a lot of information that I couldn't remember!!! Must be getting too old!
I have been spending my time doing a lot of travelling over the last three years hence no scrapbooking done! I aim to change that this year and, the next 18 mths are going to be devoted to this amazing hobby. My scrap room is just about sorted and ready for use...didn't realize I had so much "stuff"!! Here's to a very productive year and can't wait for the new CHA collections!

CSI #153

Ok I am getting in early with this one as the 151 had closed when I went to upload it. Ooops!!
This layout is about a dear friend of mine and I had such a hard time with the heart breaks for her and her family!

My journalling which is on the back reads: Pauline I met you a few short years ago in the scrapbook store which you owned with your lovely Mum Liz. I used to love going to see you even though I had no intention of buying but always did walk out with a package...and not a small package all too often! One day I called to see you and you told me you had cancer. NO, it cant be true! You were only 39 years old. Well you beat that nasty cancer after going through such a terrible time with chemo, radiation etc. I thought you were home and hosed but that was not to be. A few months later the cancer returned but in a different place and, this time you are not so lucky. You are still having chemo every three weeks and I am so glad you are still here with us but we don't know for how long. We didn't expect to have you this long but you are still here. Every time I go away I expect that message you say you have gone. You are one of the most amazing people I have met and I will miss you when you are gone my darling girl. xoxo

CSI #151

After not doing any scrapping for months I have another page to share. I really miss doing these challenges! The photo was taken by the lovely Jen Hall at Camp Mojo in August 2014.

Scrap Around the World

My goodness...I didn't realize how long it has been since I even looked at my blog let alone added anything here. I have been doing a lot of travelling now that my hubby has retired so don't have much time but I really wanted to get a few pages done before we head off overseas again.
What better place to start than first upload for them!!! I just loved this moodboard!
You can see SATW site here:

Thank you for looking.

Page Drafts 2013 Christmas Release

Em Stafrace put out a call for some scrapping people to do some layouts and cards for her Christmas release of her new sketches. I must say I was very honoured to be included amongst the other amazing girls. I did a couple of layouts and a card.

CSI #88

These are not my favourite colours to work with but this layout came together quite well. Even a little bit of grunge there!


CSI #87

Still trying to catch up with my uploads. Loved the colours for this challenge and this photo was taken one night we went for a wander down the Las Vegas Strip. There are some amazing hotels along that road!
