Hi there special friends..a massive welcome to my blog space :) I really hope you enjoy and are inspired by some of the layouts I have done. Like many of you out there I really enjoy scrapbooking and the satisfaction it gives me in seeing peoples reactions by something beautiful and memorable for many generations to come!

P.S I hope the Creative Butterfly lands on your shoulder and inspires you!! :)
Here's my take on Weeks 2 Challenge. The criteria was to use cool colours, paint, some kind of title/lettering, a flower and lastly a hybrid element. Had again tons of fun creating this, here is my take on the challenge.
I painted the background using bubble wrap and the green paint was painted on using a toothbrush, then I smeared bits of the edge of the paper with the brush. Really like how this has turned out :D
Have Incorporated the Prima packaging on my layout, love how it looks on the layout. Also one of my hybrid elements is the journal spot at the bottom of the packaging.
Another hybrid embellishment is the journal spot underneath the I love you. More Prima packaging :D
My handmade flower is another hybrid embellishment...You cant see it too clearly but what I did was typed Mother and Son over and over again in word then ran some cotton fabric through my printer and whaa laa..I now have some journal fabric and out of that I created this flower and also the remaining fabric is behind the photo.
Lastly if you can kinda see I have incorporated some cork paper, Love this, I think its going to be a new favourite thing of mine hehe. Also I'm totally lovin the wire mesh atm too. A nice touch to anything I reckon.
Anyhoos for some more amazing layouts in this weeks challenge head on over to Scrap 'N' craft with T here.
Lastly here are some recent ATC'S I've swapped out. One being a Wild West swap and the other being an Apron Swap.
Oh I do have some exciting news to share...Little Miss Savannah-Rose has just started attempting walking, she's little miss independent now..doesn't want us helping her, she thinks she can do it all on her own LOL.
