Sneaky Peaky

This is a sneak peak of my layout for next weeks challenge at scrapping the music. I made it a bit blurry to not give much away! but you can tell its a bright colorful layout.

I have next week off work and my parents are going to vegas, which means the whole house to myself WOOOOO! well Roxie will be here and Steven (my brother) but he will be at school until 3pm. That means lots of scrapping again WOOOOO!

I have a really bad cold, its more like flu as I am really achy, I had two days of work last month as I was sick so I cannot really go sick again..........just my luck, I go a year without being sick then I am sick twice in two months. I really struggled today I was closing my eyes at my desk and then jumping back into reality! I cannot wait till next week! freedom for one week.

I am have a little project I am working on, I have all the ideas I just need to do some shopping, crafting and then put it together. stay tuned lol!

La Weekend Is Here

Ok I have GOT to do something about this scrapbook shopping addiction! seriously I am spending way to much money! but sometimes things are so wonderful you just have to have them.......like these cute little chipboard buttons from Adrienne Loomans Etsy store!

I bought the ones above and these black and white ones.

I cannot wait to receive these I have ideas of how to use them already. I am off to London to do some shopping.........I know I said I would not spend anymore, BUT i am not going for me.......I am going for my mum........she wants some clothes, I will not spend any money.........but selfridges is too nice.

Have a great weekend xx

Layouts For My Bedroom Wall Part 2

I did my 2nd layout for my newly decorated bedroom Sunday "Roxie" the little cutie, this photo was taken the first week I got her. She is alot bigger now she is 20 weeks old! went crazy with doodles, buttons and used some stamps which I used pen to give a bit of color. The paper posie is handmade and painted :D

Here are the two pictures in their glory!!! they really look good together and really brighten up my wall! I still have a whole wall to play with! I am trying to decide what I want on that wall. The thing about these frames are that I can take these layouts out and change them if I want. I think I will leave these up for the winter and change the layouts in the spring.

The UK has hit a cold spell at the moment! its freeeeeeeeezing! I had to wear gloves and a scarf! winter is officially here! and I love it! my favourite time of year, coming home from work to a nice warm house and drinking hot chocolate on a Sunday and that cozy feeling!

Bedroom layout part 1

My Jack and Abbey goodies came in the post this morning! YAY!!!! so at last I got to make a start on the two layouts I am framing in my bedroom. For those who do not know, I just decorated my bedroom Chocolate and Cream, and I am doing two 12x12 layouts to frame on my wall. I might do more in the longterm but I have not decided.

This layout "Yummy" is the first layout of the two that I did this morning, I baked these yummy cakes last weekend and iced them and decorated them with Smarties!

The technique I used to get the white dot pattern at the top of the layout was, I painted some bubblewrap and stamped down on the layout! I love how it turned out.

I am not doing anything this weekend! I'm not feeling very well so thought I might as well have a lazy weekend, scrap and clean and I am cooking pasta tonight.

Waiting Game

I am waiting for my Jack and Abby goodies to arrive..........however due to the post strikes things are taking time! and I really wanted to create some layouts using these papers for my new room! all my room is painted and I have a chocolate coloured blind for my window, I just have to get some voil wraps to wrap over the top of my window! I cant describe how it will look so I will post pictures.
I have about 3 packages I am waiting for including some AC thickers, and lots of Queen and Co felt! which I am in love with.
I have to go do some dinner quickly as its 7.15pm and I have to drive to pick my brother up from work at 8pm.

Scrappy Sunday

I did not intend to do alot of scrapping this weekend..........but I kind of did LOL. I have been stressed and fed up at work all week and instead of worrying about Monday I scrapped.
The above layout "Funky Bag" is of my favourite bag! when I saw the bampop paper I just had to scrap this photo. I used paint to paint a rainbow like pattern to border the layout.
I stamped some stars, doodled the photo border, Used American Craft Thickers for the title, used Hambly rub ons and made a little flower out of Love Elsie Embellies.

This layout is of me in my PJ's haha. I love having lazy days! its normally sundays for me just chilling, scrapping and eating! I used bampop, doodled buttons, doodled journal box, AC thickers and some random ribbon from my stash. I also used some novelty stickers and cut a little anime character off some memos I have.

This layout is for this weeks challenge at Scrapping The Music
I hate how this scan turned out! it looks much better in real life..........no matter how much I editied it the layout does not look right.
Have a great Sunday!

Pulled For Pub.

WOW! so excited! I submited a layout of mine to the UK Scrapbook Inspirations Magazines readers gallery and I recieved an email saying they would like to publish the layout.

I am sending it tomorrow, however it needs to reach them by next Friday and due to the post strikes in the UK there is a posibility it may not reach them!
I am going to send it the fastest delivery so fingers crossed.

& they said sometimes not all layouts are published if they need more space in the mag! but hopefully mine will be shown!

You Make Me Smile

I can now share this layout with you! its my first layout as a DT member for Scrapping The Music challenge blog! this weeks song is "Bubbly"by Colbie Caillat. I knew straight away that I wanted to create a layout using the lyrics "You make me smile, even just for a while" which fits this picture of Roxie and I perfectly. I have used this picture on a layout before, but I believe that if the picture fits use it......Even if you scrap the same picture 100 times!!!

I used American Crafts new PP to create a bright happy fun theme, the three flowers I painted and added a brad to the centre. Used some Ki memorie Felt dots and rik rak ribbon and doodled border and letter stickers.

I said I would have lots of time this weekend to scrap but I have not LOL! so I got up at 6am to scrap a layout for next weeks STM challenge! because I have been painting my room all weekend! well yesterday I went a bought the paint and cleared my room, today I put the first coat on and its a cream/white color! nice and calm. I am going to add some chocolate accessories and I have bought two 12x12 box frames so I can put a couple of lo's on my wall! I am so excited!!!!

Rushing Around

I just russled up these cakes! not bad for a rushed effort! Its been so cold and rainy all week here. However its the perfect fall atmosphere! and I spent all day at work looking forward to coming home turning my heating on, putting my pjs on and baking some cakes!

Tomorrow at work is a team building day! we are off to some luxury hotel in the Kent countryside to do activities such as Archery and treasure hunts! not my scene at all! I will give it my best and just hope the day goes fast lol!

I am hoping to get a couple of layouts done this weekend! as I should have a bit of time, the only thing I must do this weekend is go and buy Roxie Kitten a new bed! she has outgrown her one! my little baby is growing! she is more cuddly now she is bigger! I hope I can get her one on Saturday!
