Happiness is....

being able to have time to get online again, gosh after family visiting from America, my other daughter having a baby and a very sick pooch I thought I was never going to get around to scrapping again, then when I started and finally did something, my blogger was locking me out, anyway I'm back online and hopefully my blog will start rolling again now, although I have so much to do as I've just finished a quilt for my newest grandson William (Will) and now my other daughter is having a much wanted baby girl so I finally get to scrap pink and pretty, but also make a beautiful pink baby quilt...so where can I get more hours in the day?

This latest LO is of Bob and I with our Grandson William or Will to most and Billy to some hehehe..
We both love this photo of us with him so thought I would practice pretty again in readiness for the baby girl album to come.

For this page I used Cricut cartridges 'Heritage' for the gate, and 'Cindy Loo' for the scalloped circle with the vines and bird...although I must say I think that cute little bluebird that I thought it was on the screen actually looks more like a 'puffer fish' to me in reality oh well its there to stay. I thought I would use a mixture of Glimmer Mist's on this to make it blend in a little more and the blue bird is also Glimmer Mist with the face stamped on using a 'Peachy Keen' stamp. I also used 'Smooch' white spray for the chipboard working 'Happiness is..' and on the vine down the side I used a gold Glimmer Mist. Both of these chipboard elements along with the tag at the top which reads 'holding onto the things you love'...are from Dusty Attic another great Australian company, love their chipboard die cuts.

The whole lot of everything used on this page comes from one of my fav online stores 'Outback Scrapping' which by the name you can tell is also Australian, they have great monthly kits, you probably get 1 LO and a card or 2 from a kit but they aren't expensive at all so I am happy with that.

Well I am going to endeavour to pop in daily from now on and include more of my life in my blog, of course that life revolves around mainly scrapping anyway, along with a bit of quilting and a lot of my grandchildren so nothing much will change probably from what I'm doing.

Hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day...
