A Bugs Life

Hello everyone it's a cold, damp and miserable day here in London, roll on spring! This was taken in WDWs Animal Kingdom.
I love this pic taken in 2007. I used some old Prima for the main paper and fussy cut some G45 for the leaves and ferns etc. used my Cricut to cut the title and glazed the title and some of the leaves.
The Flik was from my stash very old and lots of glue to put it together. Hope you like it thanks for stopping by. X

Scrap Room

Hi tried to post these over at Disneyscrappers, gave up and thought I would try here my internet is playing up!
This is my new room, we decorated it last October, most of the units are from Ikea.
This is my view from the door, it's tiny right! I tried to make the most of storage and get as much in but still keep it tidy.

This was the desk I choose all my Copics fit in perfectly and I can hide the wires for laptop, sewing machine and Cricut but it's all ready to go.
The shelving is nice as I can hide things but also have some display areas which I've never had before.

The finishing touches, I made the pelmet and I was going for an Alice in Wonderland Theme, think I need a few more quirky pieces, thanks for checking out my blog x

Typhoon Lagoon & G45

Hi thanks for stopping by! Well another busy week, we spent Saturday in the gorgeous Canterbury love visiting this place! I was in scrap heaven yesterday, I'm enjoying my new scrap room and love spending a lazy Sunday afternoon in there. I lit my Pink Sands Yankee candle, a pot of tea and endless tunes on YouTube what more could a girl ask for.
This layout is WDW 2012 at Typhoon Lagoon, I used some Graphic 45 papers, background paper is from the Botanical Tea Collection, ripped paper is from the By the Sea Collection and the sand effect paper is a very old Karen Foster paper. I used the stamps from Tropical Travelogue range and just lightly inked using Tim Holtz peeled paint. A few bits and bobs and it was finished. Well until next time Happy Crafting x

Alice in Wonderland

Well I can't believe how long it's been since I posted here! This is for the Disneyscrappers challenge if you love all things Disney you need to pop over there! 
Some pics from WDW 2012, I used some Marion Smith papers which are actually Alice in Wonderland themed. I stamped the Mad Hatter and used Copics to colour, the wooden watch I embellished and the little quotes are stamps too. Hope you enjoy looking I will try and post more frequently, have a great weekend x

Scrap Around The World

This challenge caught my eye this month, loved the inspiring image and reminded me of how much I want to learn to use my sewing machine! My granny used to have one just like the one I photographed from a quaint shop last summer. check out the challenge over at http://scraparoundtheworld.blogspot.gr

Here's my take on the challenge, love trying out the folded paper from my friend Marilyn over at treasuringmemories, the above mood board was her inspiration so I had to play along! I used old stash and created the dressform from old Stampinton & Co papers that I have been hoarding, the big button behind the sew nice label on the rosette I made with my melting pot!

London days out. And some scrapping!


Hi had a great time in London yesterday, visited Harrods and some shopping
We usually go a few times a year but since our last visit they have opened a Disney themed restaurant and the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutque based on the one in WDW Downtown Disney!

We then headed over to Covent Garden for some food and cocktails!
Now for some scrapping,
This was taken at AK in 2012, again using up old stash and using bits and pieces cut from the pics to enhance the layout, I thought it turned out ok!
