Dare for No 8 Wired

March 23, 2009

Well here I go again. I thought that I would send in a l/o for the next dare challenge on No 8 Wired. They put up a new dare every couple of weeks so there is something for everyone I guess. This fornights dare was to use black and white AND color photo’s. I did this l/o a few months ago now I  guess, but I love how my girl looks in these photo’s.



What is she up too???

March 23, 2009

Andrea over at Scrapbook Outlet has a surprise for us all, but she very hush hush about it. She has not even told her design team. Sounds intriguing. It is going to be a competition for all and the prize sounds very exciting. Have a look here, and join in the fun.


At last, some where we can go to get to know!!!!

February 24, 2009


Well here we go ladies and gentleman, we have somewhere to go where we can find out all of those things we want to know about all of those products out there. The ones we want to own, but we are not quite sure how they will stand the test of time, or if they are as good as they sound, and if they will give our special lay outs or cards or off the page projects that “WOW” factor.

This is the place where we have a bunch of very talented people, looking into all of these products for us, and telling us the “TRUTH”  and nothing but the truth, about all of those products, and we all know how many there are out there!!!

So check it out. They launch on the 1st of March, so let’s support them as really they are doing this for us.

    Hi there every one. I guess you may have thought that I had dropped off the face of the earth, but here I am. Back in the computer seat, and rearing to go into 2009.

    I didn’t even look at the date since I last posted, but I know it was quite some time ago, and yes I have done a few projects over that time which I would love to share with you.   

Clock for Mum's birthday 2008


    This is a clock (well obviously), that I found as a kit and I just covered it with papers and blings and bits and pieces, inserted the photo’s of various family members, and gave to my mum for her birthday present last month. She seemed delighted with it, so one can not complain.

Close up of the dial

    The next few are pages of a pertpetual birthday calendar that I did for my mother in law for Christmas.  I won’t bore you with them all!!!

    May - Janet's diary

    Obviously not in any particular order. That would just make too much sense!!!

November - Janet's calendar


October- Janet's Calendar


September - Janet's Calendar


    I won’t make you endure the whole calendar. If you really want to see it all then just let me know.

    We also went and stayed with the inlaws in the Waikato, and we went for a nice walk through some native country side, which I just have to share. I just love all the colours that nature has to offer, and all of the shapes and symetry of nature that we try to emulate, but we just can’t match the same beauty. (Crikey what am I on!!!)








Nature at her best


    Beautiful…am I right???

    I have done other lay outs and things, but I will do those in another post. I just wanted to let you know that I was back and that I have missed being here.

    I also had the great pleasure of being able to go to Wellington and stay with a beautiful friend of mine whom I shall call K. You know who you are. Of course while I was there, kids free may I add, we got stuck into the joyous past time that we call scrapping. As of yet I have not yet photographed those lay outs, but when I do, I will be happy to share.

    I also met with Mandy B, nice to put a face to a name at last, and also Joh with an h. Nice to meet up with you ladies.

That’s me for now. Will blog soon. I promise!!!


Sorry no news for a while!!!

Hi all,

Just to let you know that I am in hospital. I have been in for 3weeks now as I have had something like a stroke. I am just out on leave for a couple of hours to have tea with my family and then I have to go back.

I am now in the rehabilitation ward called Star 3 as I am now getting intensive physiotherapy and occupational therapy, to get me home, hopefully by next week, so we shall see!!!

I hope you are all well, and that you are all happy.

Take care everyone, and hopefully I can talk to you all soon.
