What a lovely week this has been.... no rush, not tearing from one place to the next
And scrapping ...and starting to blog hop again.   And even getting some housework done.
Just settling into ordinary day after day stuff.  I've found some fave photos that have gotten themselves scrapped!!  And used some of my loverley ClaraBowsTeaParty dyed doilies! I'm in love with them! They turn up quite a bit in my work!  The gorgeous Kris gave both Julie and I a little gift of them when we were in Cairns at the end of May.   How incredibly lucky we were!  Still - if I run out - OR see a colour I like in her etsy...I cant resist and top-up!!

This is a wonderful memory captured!
Grandpa and Hannah - 'Learning to Fish'
Hannah was fascinated!!  She loved every minute of it!
Seeee again I've used my Purple Onion Designs 'Broken15 Alphabet' in the word 'Notice'
Love it!!!

I've had this paper forever.  It was from a scrapping site that laser cut 12x12 papers!!
Its sadly gone....  wish I could find a place that did that again!  I know I know there are Punches etc now..but not as precise as this and getting that cornering just right!!

Check out the sketch here.
My term there is nearly up. I wont be continuing, life is too busy for me at the moment
  There is a design team call at the moment

I couldnt see a LO at all with this OTP was the way to go. It's always fun altering items..
Love it!
I used some grungy rubons, and filled this container with a heap of fabulous red embellishments!
Loved how it turned out!

Oooooh and to the LOVELY AMY
This is what Amy sent me after submitting to MY FAVE THINGS birthday Celebrations.
Its a beautiful vintage music score!  Look at this mind whirls when I think of what I can do with this!  I've been sooo lucky to be on the receiving end of Amy's RAKs before...
Thanks so much Missy!
