Born To Ride

Welcome crafty friends to my blog and my latest page created for the challenge over at

Which external hard drive was it on, well after some time wella, found. This photo was taken of my youngest son Harley some years ago at the Geelong adventure park. He loved the Merry Go Round and had many rides on it that day.

Again ass always welcome to my blog and my mid monthly reveal post for Let's Get Sketchy and boy is this a great one. It's a wonderful sketch created by Breshevia and I have chose to create my page using a photo of a friends daughter Rachael. I just adore her, she is a little chatterbox and so wonderful. This photo was taken a few year back now. 

With this page I have not used lots of different embellishments because I have fussy cut them from the patterned papers.
The patterned papers are by Kaisercraft - Ooh La La Collection and also the matching sticker sheet.
The only other things I used were a Kaisercraft Die, Journal Pen and Distress Ink - Black Soot.

I love fussy cutting and most of my pages will have something i have fussy cut if I can. For this page though the papers were just beautiful and I loved cutting from them.
I hope you have enjoyed stopping in and there is more inspiration over at the Let's Get Sketchy Blog so please call in and join us.

Happy crafting and I hope you have a wonderful day. XXX

Photo Dairy

Welcome to my blog and my DT post for Meg's Garden Blog. I would like to share with you my  small Photo Diary using the Parisian Gardens Collection.
I have made the Photo Diary using  a Fuji Film Scrapbooking Book which I purchased at the Harvey Norman after Christmas sale. I took one look and thought I know what I can make this into. Then I received my goodies pizza box from Meg and I thought perfect. 
Because of all the products I have used on my pages of the album I won't go into lots of writing but list the products I have used under the photos.
On the right side of the pages there is a frame mount made with cardstock to place the photo and on the left there are journal tags so you can do as much writing as you want about your photo. Also on each of the pages there are small areas where you can hand journal or make notes about the photo. 
Even though some of my embellishments go over edges of the photo mounts when the photos need to be placed I have made sure that I can tuck them in behind.

Finished cover - 

Parisian Gardens patterned paper used on the front. (The background is what the cover was liked when book purchased.)
