October DT pack

Well Anna’s got me really busy this month (which of course I love), except this month I’m a little slower than usual because its THAT time of year again… Yes, our 1400 peach & nectarine trees all need picking and packing to get to market. (I’d rather be scrapping!)

Here’s the DT pack she sent me – its chock-a-block full of stunners…



Crate Paper BLISS (and some of the COTTAGE chipboard & stickers).


MME Abbey Road/OOH LA LA


and Kaiser/LILAC AVENUE.

Oh WOW! I’m so excited!!!!!

Its my first year of entering the Masters and look……

Finally we can announce the list you’ve all been waiting for – our shortlist for the 2009 Masters Competition. We were absolutely inundated with entries once again this year and the talent that came through our doors was unbelievable! So much so that this year’s shortlist is much longer than last year – we simply couldn’t make it any shorter! Congratulations to all who entered and a huge round of applause to our Masters shortlist for 2009. Good Luck!

A challenge: 10 layouts in 2 days

OK, so I tried setting myself a goal of completing 10 layouts in 2 days, the emphasis being on TRIED.  Well… 7 is OK, isn’t it?  Trying to use up some Anna’s Craft Cupboard papers, lettering & scraps.  The next DT pack is waiting at the post office and the photos are piling up (ahhhh!) Anyway, here’s 6 of the 7 I got done.

Big boots

Love how this one turned out. Thankyou to my fellow DT member Wendy Smith for the inspiration on this one from the ‘Tractor pull’ layout. It uses the MME round & round paper.


Favourite beach

This one has Scenic Routse beach rub-ons from Annas but the papers is Rouge de Garance.

September DT layouts

I just couldn’t resist ordering some of these gorgeous papers from ANNA’s from the BO BUNNY Delilah range – they were perfect for these photos that I love so much of my little girl and didn’t want to over-do the pages, making a feature of the photo.  The papers are just too pretty to cover up too much of the pattern.



just so cute

This one is my absolute favourite.  Look at that little face…..(awwww)


sweet as

These 2 are from the Nikki Sivils My Sweet Cherry pps.

And finally, one from the BO BUNNY Flutter Butter range .
