Beautiful Christmas Table

This photo was taken by Kerryn Leworthy. It's a pic of her Christmas table and I just 
love the red/aqua combination as well as the card holder decorations. Superb!!!

Christmas Wreath

I picked up this plain wreath in a 'cheapie' shop. 
What appealed to me was the fact that it came on the metal stand as a table decoration 
rather than a hanging decoration. I really liked the plain look until I passed the ribbon 
section and then I had the idea to tie ribbons on it to decorate it. 
I LOVE how it turned out. Mind you I had sore fingers from tying the ribbons 
on really tight and I finished it at 2am! It took a lot longer than I thought! 

Thanks for stopping by to take a look!

Jot Magazine - October Mood Board

I love seeing the monthly mood board challenge at Jot Magazine but don't always get around to having a go, so I took advantage of still being on holidays to scrap this layout using a colour palette way out of my comfort zone. I'm really happy with the end result! Thanks for a great challenge!

Keeping It Simple

I have been experimenting with keeping my pages a little more simple. Sometimes less is more!

Staying True

I have seen a lot of changes and developments in the 'style' of scrapbooking since I began 10 something years ago. I am always open to trying and learning something new. Upon seeing the recent changes, I came to question myself ..... whether I wanted to compromise my own style to 'copy' the new trends or stay true to my own style that I have developed over the years? 
After taking time away to ruminate over this conundrum and almost giving scrapbooking away because I was not enjoying the pressure to keep up with the 'new' ....... I came to the conclusion that I will stay true to my own style and incorporate some of the new trends into my style, but not be dictated by the new trends. From reaching this conclusion, I can honestly say that I am happier scrapping now than I have been in along time.
I was at the Little Scrapbook Shop annual retreat a fortnight ago and was so happy with some of my creations. I had the pleasure of scrapping with two of the new Kaisercraft ranges "Christmas Carol" and another yet to be released range for SCRAPBOOK SUPPLIES ONLINE as well as the 
Echo Park "Beautiful Life" range and here are my creations.
I was also lucky enough to win the retreat card sketch challenge to receive the prize of a brand new QuicKutz Revolution Die Cut machine too.

More Mixed Media!

I am inspired by the work of Christy Tomlinson at the moment, so I have been doing some of her online classes, which are very educational and enjoyable!
Here's a quick canvas I created this evening for a friend's daughter's birthday. She has grown out of her 'pink' phase and has recently had her bedroom re-decorated in shades of blue and green, 
so I am hoping that she will like adding this to her decor!

Turning an Idea into a Reality

I wanted something motivational for "my space" in my classroom, so I created another canvas with an  idea I had ...... using a quote I love!
"Do What You Love - Love What You Do. Let Your Heart Sing!"
