I'm back!!!!!!

Hello hello!
Seems like a lifetime ago I wrote a blog post but I have a spare afternoon so I thought I would share with you all a layout I created for the 7dots Studio Challenge. Here is the link for the challenge.
I have used some leftovers from the Domestic Goddess range (which is now an oldie being from Summer 2012!). I love the bright burgundy colours in this range and have teamed it up with lots of mixed media.

I have journalled about 'wonder' and how my kids bring me the best joy and fun amidst the craziness of their antics.
Tusia's paper collections are amazing and so is her DT so make sure you head on over to the 7dots blog to see lots of inspiration! BLOG HERE 
I am planning on blogging more often so please stay tuned!!!!
Have a great day and until next time

Scrapbook Memories blog hop! happening here!

Welcome to the Scrapbooking Memories BLOG HOP!!!
This is a themed blog hop and all our layouts are clues and you must try and guess the theme and post your answer on the Scrapbooking Memories blog HERE
Here is my layout... it's about my recent allergy tests as I suffer all the time from hayfever! I found that I am highly allergic to most things and am starting desensitisation at the end of the month! I hope this is a start to being allergy free *fingers crossed* and not living off antihistamines.
In case you can't enlarge my layout my journaling reads, "it's not just a Spring thing. It's an all year round thing".
So if you haven't seen Heather's layout head BACK to her blog to see her take on the theme at
Until next time

Easy background techniques - short video tutorial by me.... ENJOY

Hi there
How are you all going?
I'm not sure if you have seen my You Tube Channel just yet but I am slowly adding videos and sharing some of my techniques on there. I am trying to keep things sweet and short so as not to bore you too much and I also 'speak' and 'talk things through' in my videos (I hate my voice but I think speaking is the easiest way to relay information)...
Anyways this is a layout I created for my Paperhaus blog day and I have put below the link to my You Tube video on how I created some of the background effects.

And the video....
I've gotta run Homeland is about to start and can't miss it!

Until next time...
