Thanks for the little nudge Sandie. To be truthful I had completely forgotten that it was my turn to choose the topic. My original plan for this month was to buy some matching papers and give every one a couple of pieces of them and see what they came up with but with the lack of a scrappin' store here(that sells something other than kaiser) and me not going anywhere major I never got around to buying them, maybe that will be for my next one. So instead this months challenge, seeing as it is February after all is Love. Amour (French) Gra`(Irish) Elska(Icelandish) Pagmamahal (Filipino) Leibe (German) Amore (Italian) yes I could go on and on. This can be lovey dovey love, love for a friend, love for a pet, love of chocolate (Mmmmm chocolate), love for a house hold appliance that makes your life easier, any form of love you wish. So go forth and scrapbook my friends and happy Valentines day for the 14th.

What's in store ..........

Well Susy, it's now February & I'm eagerly waiting for what you have in store for us this month!!!
Can't believe it's Feb already!!!!
Looking forward to seeing what everyone comes up with.

My challenge layout.

With a visit from sweet Coco, some fun times were had.

Saturday night the four of us ventured to the chinese restaurant for a wonderful meal [& of course Coco had to see Davey !!!]
Susy called down later in the evening to share dessert with us, along with some hugs & laughter.
We tootled back to my place afterwards & enjoyed some wine & lots of giggles and chatting!!!
So I thought, what better pic to use for this month's challenge than one from such a fun time together over a lovely meal !! So here's my page.

I love this cute little sparkly heart.
I found these 'pebbles' and just love 'em.

So I hope that you like my creation.

January's challenge is .....

Hi folks!
Sharon is having trouble sining in to this blog so has asked me to post this month's challenge for her so you get all get started.

Sharon says:


This can be good times spend around food.

As we have just had the festive season which revolves around food,

and food plays a big role in our social structure,


is my theme.

It can be food, your favourite food or a good time eg - meal with friends & family that was well spent. Something along those lines.

So there you have it guys - ready, set ...... GO !!!

Cheers Sandie xxx

Welcome & hello to you all on this Christmas Eve.

This is my layout for this month's challenge - "FANTASY".
I hope that you like it.
This is the saying that I have placed on my page.

Full layout. Loving the colours.
I love the distress crackle paint!

I made these gates with my new 'Silhouette SD' machine. Just the best thing!!!

I've tried to make it look like you are seeing through secret garden gates that lead down to the bottom of the gardern to go to where the fairies live & play.

I would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year.
May you all have the best time with family and friends, enjoying good food & lots of laughter and the making of wonderful memories. Stay safe and healthy and enjoy the festive spirit.
Cheers & all the best.
