More handmade flowers

No scrapping happening here lately but I have been blog hopping to check out all the new challenges for a March, eeeekk! How is it already March???
I have, however, managed to snatch a little time to make some more flowers. I hope you were able to see the pics in my last post after I uploaded them again.
What handmade elements do you use in your scrapping or card making?

Handmade Flowers

I love to use handmade emblies so this week I have been having a go at making my own flowers and I must say I am loving the results! Some are made using punched flowers and other I have hand cut, nothing fussy though, all very rustic. I have a heap of glimmer mists which have hardly seen the light of day so I have been putting them to good use along with lots of scrap cardstock and some chalks.

I can't wait to use them on my LOs. Have you made your own flowers? I'd love to see some if you have.


Mmmm....not sure why the pics couldn't be seen. I had made a collage in picasa so maybe that caused a problem. Anyway, I have added them again here, hope you can see them now.

Scrap the girls

I'm on a bit of a roll here at the moment. I am finally getting around to joining in a few of the challenge blogs that I have been following for ages. This is my layout for this months sketch challenge at Scrap the girls

Next on the agenda is Let's get shabby, stay tuned.

Kraft It Up!

Now that the munchkins are back at school I have had a change to scrap, woohoo! I know I should be putting the house back together but I reeeeealy needed a bit of me time first. The housework can wait 'til next week can't it??
Anyway, I have been following Kraft It Up for ages now but have never gotten around to entering but that has all changed now. Here is my LO for this months challenge, I love the colours and I love that I already had all these goodies in my stash.

Thanks for dropping by.

It's that time again

How fast did January fly by??? I blinked and just about missed it.
The bright side of that though is that the February Scrap Jacked is up waiting to inspire you all. Head on over and check it out here and get scrapping.  Congratulations to all of our winners for January, there were so many fabulous entries.
My DT layout for this month includes something I do rather a lot of, hidden journaling. Often I want to tell the whole story of the pic and use lots of photos but it can all get too crowded especially as I do 8 x8 LOs, this way I my photo can still be the focus of the page.  This is also great for journalling that is more personal, that you might not want everyone to see.

I can't wait to see your creations.
