Maisie at sea!

This was taken by Stewart on the Sabrina River Boat in Shrewsbury of Maisie. Again used stuff from my Stash, papers that I have had a while, but were just perfect for this. Love the wistful feel of the photo.

By the Sea layout

I am putting together a scrapbook for a delightful young photographer friend. @stew_mackellar He takes a lot of outdoor activity photos and also a lot of the Welsh coast, and all are stunning. Here is one Tywyn, Llwyngwril, and no, I can't pronounce it either! Used Graphic 45 By the Sea papers mostly. The rickety fence is made using wooden coffee stirrers!

By the Sea

This is a junk store cabinet which was originally dark brown wood and very badly made. I had to remake all the drawers and do a lot of painting and sanding, but am very pleased with the result. I used Graphic 45 By the Sea papers to decorate and lots of other bits I had lying around. Never throw anything away, they will always come in handy!

God's Wave

This is a layout based around an amazing photo taken by my friend Stewart (twitter @stewart_Mackellar). I found the picture to be very spiritual and so wanted to keep the layout very simple. The font is from the Cricut cartridge Nursery Rhyme but I have had the paper a while and can't remember whose it is.

This is a card I made for our local BBC radio station to say thankyou for all the help and support that they have given my daughter's acoustic group.


The card on the flaps is from DCWV Rockstar, the sides are embossed silver using the Tim Holtz music embossing folder. Guitars are from Musical instruments, notes and microphone from Quarter Note and thankyou from TB&B2


The group Not Completely Blonde have just released their new ep called Not Completely an Album and this is a link to a fun video for one of the songs. My daughter is the not blonde one

This is for Maisie, my youngest and is designed to hang. The tree is actually made up of mustaches, backed and threaded together to make a tree.
