Hi there! I hope you find some inspiration from looking at my blog. Take your time, click on some of the links, get some ideas, join some challenges, but most of all, have FUN:):)

Friday, 21 March 2014


And to say I'm a tad excited is an understatement! I'm so very, very happy to have joined the smashing team over at OFF THE RAILS...& since I'm 'playing' alongside some girls I know pretty well---an added bonus! So go check out the fab team HERE if you don't know who I'm talking about!
The challenge for this fortnight - starting the 21st March is FREE....yup...totally & absolutely up to you! Not only that, you can do a card, PL, a Mixed Media creation or a layout.
I must admit, this threw me a bit. I like direction! So, I made up my own. I decided to do a 'lift'. Sometimes I'll 'save' pages I REALLY like, just to 'ooh' & 'aaah' over occasionally.....this one from Mumkaa [Magda Bolinksy] does it for me:

 And here is my lift:
Another old photo from pre-digital days. I'm really enjoying getting the more important ones scrapped!
And man, I had such FUN doing this. So, join in - 'lift' someone [always check it's OK with them - Magda was a gem - most scrappers are:)] & show us what you can do:):)
Some closies:
 The background was a 'failed' page I'd gelatoed up & didn't like. Gessoed over it, to soften it then added stamps, ripped paper [those 6x6 pads], stickers....washi tape....masks.....you name it!!!
 Once upon a time, I won a giveaway from Linda E....chippy fence! Finally used. TICK!!!
 A Silly '@'....looove that little camera stamp set from Amy Tangerine - in a giveaway I recently won from Polka Dot Creative!!!
And in here is a 3rd Eye stamp I just keep reaching for - those pink diamond shapes. The turquoise is Silks Acrylic glaze. Super-duper stuff. A little sure goes a LONG way!
Hope this has inspired you to join in at Off the Rails
The challenge starts March 21st for 2 weeks:)
And the prize?
The winner of the challenge will get to tell us all about themselves, share their blog and show us one of their first layouts and one of their current layouts.
