Paper Poppy Layouts and Mini Album!

This kit from the Paper Poppy was so wonderful! I was able to finish three layouts and a mini album and STILL had some leftovers for cards! (haven't had the time to make said cards, but the kit package is still on my scrappy desk!)

Thanks for stopping by!

Guest DT This week at the Paper Poppy Kit Club!

When Aphra emailed me a few weeks ago asking if I would guest DT for her fab kit club, I YELLED (via email) YES! YES! YES! and then did a little dance :)

Her kits are super fab and this November's kit was no exception! Love every bit of it!  Combination of Bella Blvd and Jillibean Soup papers, Basic Grey felties and lots of other yummies!  I made three layouts and a mini album, with lots left over to make cards this weekend if I have time :)

More LCOM Layouts!

Kristine and I were on fire!!!  I think she got 5 or 6 done herself...
we normally struggle to get two done at an all day crop LOL  Hope you like :)


Sassafras Hello Mini Album

Here's an Album I've been working on for a few weeks now...finally got it finished and photos taken!  I just love this Sassafras collection...Amplify, one of my all time favs :)

I have no idea what photos I'll add to the album yet...but isn't that always the way?  I love making the albums...just never seem to get around to adding the photos LOL

Hope you are having a great day!

LCOM Crop Layouts!

Hi Folks!
The sun decided to come out today (yay!) so I was finally able to take some photos of the layouts I worked on during the fabulous LCOM crop in Saint John last weekend.  Kristine and I scrapped from 10am until 2am!  Can you believe it?!?  So much fun and I got lots done!  The space is super comfortable...great table, great lighting and unlike many scrappy venues....the room temperature was great (very important when you are scrapping for so long!) I'm already looking forward to the next one in January :)

Here are a few of my layouts from the day!

Thanks for stopping by!  Hope everyone is having a great weekend :)

Hopefully if all goes according to plan, I'll be visiting my Sister and her cute family on Sunday!  Can't wait to see this little fella soon....

Look how cute they are....

Creative Scrappers Sketch 129

Here is my latest layout for Creative Scrappers!  I love Rohan and his Dino Roar!  He is always running around "roaring" at us...and  he was a dinoseaur for Hallaoween last week, so I'll be scrapping those soon I imagine :)

And here is the awesome sketch!  Give it a try, I loved working with it...inspired me to keep things "clean" for a change!  LOL

Thanks for stopping by!

.....This is what I've been up to!

OK, so I haven't scrapped in what seems like AGES!  Yikes!  The Whimsy shop has been busy, but also...I have discovered a new craft that I LOVE!  Lampwork Glass Beadmaking!

My classes are every Wednesday night...and here are the Beads that I made during my Beginner Class
(I haven't cleaned the bead release from the holes yet)

 Here is my super sweet instructor Janelle at the torch

Doesn't that look like fun?  If you are in the Halifax area, new classes begin in February at the NSCCD and I plan on signing up again just for the torch time hehe

OK, I'm off to Scrapbook! (Finally)
