Welcome to my blog!! I hope you will enjoy your time here! I am a happy busy Mom of 3 who loves to create things!!! I scrapbook, make cards, knit, quilt, keep a Project Life album and potter in my garden and veggie patch!! I like to share what I have been busy with here. Grab a cup of tea or coffee, and pause here for a while!
I strongly urge you to stop by the SCRAP AFRICA blog, the DT is SUCH a talented bunch of gals, and they have created some gorgeous layouts for this challenge!! You have until the 14th of February, Valentines Day, to play along with us!! Hope you have a great week ahead :)
Sjoe it's been a hectic few days in the Sharp household!! What with getting Caide all packed up and ready to go back to boarding school, getting Jamie ready for Grade 1 and Bryce ready for his last year of Primary School, I must confess to being rather knackered! Roll on weekend!!
So....just a quick post to share the latest SCRAP AFRICA challenge with you. It's a fabulous challenge, one I know you will all have fun with......RECYCLE!!
You need to use at least one
recycled item on your project. Create a card, layout or altered piece,
that has a recycled item and please tell us what that item is.
Here is the layout I created for this challenge. I used a clothing tag for my recycled item!

Hi Ladies. Hope you are having an wonderful weekend so far!! I was asked by the lovely Jeaunes if I wanted to play along with a Design Team challenge over at Let's Scrap, and I said "of course", I was on the team there for 2 terms and always enjoyed my time spent with a bunch of super sweet gals!!
The challenge is:
You can use a photo of yourself,
or something (not another person though) that is super important to you.
This can be coffee, diet pop, gardening, crafting - something that
represents YOU!! You can use any sketch from Let's Sketch.
I was excited when I saw the brief for this challenge, and I decided to do a layout about one of my hobbies that has become very important to me, my sewing!!
I used my Silhouette lots on this layout, it is such an awesome machine (especially when it has a new blade in it!!) The pretty papers are by Prima - Anna Marie Range and the hearts are by Little Yellow Bicycle.
