'Lost & Found 3' layout and card

Just a quick share before Christmas. :)  I am finally ready, I think... :)
This is another layout using my DT kit from 'The Scrapbook Store'. This time I used a photo of DH and I, taken only 8 days ago. I have used the beautiful MME Lost & Found 3 'Ruby' collection.
A close up of my cluster using Prima and Manor House flowers and Green Tara Mini roses. The pearl fourish is from Kaisercraft.
 Another close up. :)
 Love these gorgeous red Thickers.
A card I made using the left overs from my kit.  I am sending this to a very sweet new blog friend.  Hope she'll like it. :)
Finally, to all my beautiful blog friends and followers... I hope you have a wonderful Christmas and blessed 2013!  Thank you so much for all your support and lovely comments throughout the year! 
Until next time!

Blog Hop winner and new layout

First of all, I want to thank everybody who took part in the Scrap The Girls Blog Hop and a big welcome to all my new followers.  Because I'm not that tech savvy and didn't have time to ask for help or struggle with it myself, I did it the old fashioned way and put all the names in a bowl to draw a winner. :) AND the random prize winner of my little RAK is Toni Herron.  Congratulations Toni! Can you please email me with your address at and I will get it in the mail to you asap. :)
Don't forget to check out the Scrap The Girls Blog later this week for the announcement of the overall winner and to take part in the Birthday Celebration challenges.

I have a new layout to share with you as well. With me being away for the first week of December and then getting back to Mount Washmore, I fell a bit behind on my scrapping. :)  I found a few spare hours on Saturday and came up with this layout.  I probably don't have to tell anybody how much I love MME, do I? Lol!   This is from the new Lost & Found 3 'Ruby' collection available at The Scrapbook Store.  The photo is of my DD and her date, at her Year 12 Ball earlier this year.
A close up of the gorgeous Prima flowers and Green Tara Paper leaves. Love the glitter on these flowers.
These AC Thickers were the perfect red for my layout and they are soft like velvet. :)  Just about everything else on my layout are from this gorgeous collection.
That's all I have to share for today.  I'm hoping to pop in with another layout later on in the week.
Thank you for visiting my blog and for you beautiful comments.  They make my day!  Have a lovely week.
Until next time.

December Sketch at The Scrapbook Store

Hi everyone! I'm back from a very enjoyable and relaxing week long break in Bali with my girl and her best friend and her mum. We did some shopping, relaxing, had a few massages and ate some great food! But now it's back to reality and with Christmas around the corner, I think reality is going to hit pretty hard! Lol! I am so not ready yet. :)
For now, I want to share the December Sketch at The Scrapbook Store with you.  It's another gorgeous sketch designed by Nadia. If you find a bit of time to be  creative (in the midst of you Christmas planning), why not give it a go?  You can win a cool $40 store voucher!
Okay, back to the sketch.
My take on it.  I've used an older collection from Authentique, called 'Gathering'.  The pic is of my hubby fishing in the shallow waters while on holidays earlier this year. :)
The flowers are from Prima and the resin flowers from Kaisercraft.  I have also used my Poppy Stamps 'Lorelai Leaf' Die to cut a few extra leaves.
 I have used a WOW chipboard word for my title.  Just coated it with some Glimmer Mist.
I hope you will find some time to play along.  You can find the gallery full of inspiration from the rest of the DT here.  Oh, and before I forget.... The Scrapbook Store is having it's 3RD BIRTHDAY SALE at the moment, with 20 % off storewide! Go and check it out!
That's all for today.  I better get some sleep so I can cope with the mountain of washing that's wating for me. :)
Thank you for visiting.  Hope you have an awesome week!
Until next time.
