A big change....might you come along ??

OK, so theres a silly story about the name of this blog. I started out in papercrafting by way of invitation making. And actually before that was wedding planning. I still do a bit of that, but the title of this blog (and the little side business) it really WORDY !! I get so tired of explaining it, it doesn't make a lot of sense and doesn't relate back to me. SO, I've decided to move blogs (since I just cant change it) and am hoping you will join me over at Thanks so much to my little group of followers. I will aprreciate you whether you follow the new blog or not, it meant a lot to me !!

More pages

I am still making cards, but I wanted to quickly post this page I made with my new kit from My Creative Scrapbook so I can post it to their sketch blog here

As a newbie to this, I'm loving getting co-ordinated papers and embelishments to make my pages. THis page is a REAL departure for me, so many pattern at once but it just pulls at my heartstings when I look at it !


I had this picture in mind when making the page....and then when I placed it on the page I realized how BLUE the sky was !! Tried colouring over it with a copic and it toned it down a TAD, but it's still quite bluer than the aqua in the papers - oh well lesson learned, bring your photo to your craft room when picking out your papers !!! This is one of my current fav pictures of my daughter at the splash pad this summer, and my hubby snapped it while sitting on a bench behind me as I was standing. It's a great angle to get beautiful sky in your photos and Im going to try it again !!

The pattern papers and most of the embellies are from the august main kit. I coloured some crotchet flowers with copics to match, and sew'd on some SU pool party ribbon. A quick tip, the ribbon was way to aqua for the paper, so I ran my pallette New Canvas pad over it a couple of times to mute out the colours.
Made my circle by tracing around a plate, and the doily was some Su cardstock I punched, put through my paper crimper a few times and then pleated behing the circle.

Here a pic of the dimension


So, happy with my 3rd page ever...anxious to get to more..with my pictures in hand this time !!
