Happy New Year

Ahh yes, a little late I know, but Happy 2012 to you all!

We had  a quiet festive period here which I'm very thankful for after all our upheaval last year.  The builders finally went home a few days before Christmas giving me time to clean up after them.  Christmas day was a great success and it was wonderful to have a kitchen and oven again.

Anyway, I'll catch up on a few layouts from the last month but will try to spread them out a little over the next few days.  Here goes:

I started this layout at our last crop.  I have Julie Taylor to thank for the papers and stickers.  I sat there feeling sorry for myself as I hadn't had any new stash to play with for ages and Julie let me play with her October Afternoon goodies.  Well, what a generous friend she is.  How gorgeous!

It did take me a very long time to cut any papers though and I had to mix it in with some older stuff - I felt really bad using Julie's gorgeous stash.

The mark of a truly wonderful friend!!

See that punched tag? Jackie has some marvellous dies in her tool bag.

I'll leave you with a layout I did for Manorhouse Creations last month.

Boo is my brother's gorgeous new springer spaniel puppy.  Isn't she adorable?!

I love these pretty flowers - they are just so easy to use.  I think this is a record number of flowers for me. I think I used 16 flowers on one layout!  Phew!  I will need a lie down.

Blossoms – Airlie, Esperance & Avoca.

Thanks for popping in.  I am back on track now for more regular posts. 



  1. Love how the OA layout has turned out.

    Also love the use of all those flowers on your 2nd layout.


Thanks for leaving a lovely comment - it is most appreciated!
