Where did December go?

Well hello there everyone!  Where or where did December go? Can someone please tell me?  I lost it somewhere between the end of school, an Elf on the Shelf, a Fiji holiday and so many wonderful Christmas celebrations!

First up, I'm here today to share some Chrissy goodies I created for Manor House...







Gift tag and card set created for Caitlin xox

AND I just have to add a few shots from all the comings and goings of December, it has been a fabulous month full of so many memories to scrap but little time to scrap them.  No biggie, I'll catch up in January!!



Hilton Fiji Resort - Ahhh the serenity


Waiting for Fish and Chips at the beach


Candy - our elf on the shelf


Me and my sister "Di" - Seems there is a little theme with the "bunny ears" lolol

Glad you popped by!

Manor House cards to share today

Hello there everyone!

I have a Manor House card share today, I so love working with these flowers and they just come up so well on cards.  Speaking of cards, I'm doing so many of late, my poor scrapbooks are having to take a back seat! It got me thinking actually, just how many crafty things I am "into".  It tends to go in phases and they all tend to jostle for my attention but cards are definitely winning right now!








and I have started on the Christmas cards!!!  These ones are using the beautiful new Manor House Believe papers...






Hope you get some time to spend on your crafty pursuits, 
See you next time lovelies, thanks for popping by.

Savvy November sketch

Hello there my crafty friends!

Happy dance, I got to the November sketch over at Savvy and it's not even half way through the month :)



Here is my take, using Maggie Holmes and some old old Glitz design papers - oh yes, and another one of those yummy Chevron baggies from Craft Queen.  I have been really trying hard to mix my older stuff with new stuff of late!


and a little close up of my main cluster...


Thanks for popping by today!

Scrapbook Savvy October Blind Scrap

Hello there!

So happy I made the time to join in the Blind Scrap at Scrapbook Savvy on Tuesday night... I had a blast AND I got a whole page done in one night, glued down and everything!!! (I know!) AND I love it!


Ok - so I have to journal yet, but I don't really like writing on my layouts so I thought I'd save it for after the photo and may probably even stick it in behind somewhere!!



I have used some of my beautiful new Maggie Holmes goodies and some Prima, and some older Glitz papers which turned out the perfect fit.

Can't wait to see how the other ladies pages turned out!

Ballet Girl

I just love these new Chevron Party bags at Craft Queen and I could not help but to use one on a recent layout!




I simply opened up the party bag and cut in half so I had 2 layers.  Using foam tape I layered ontop of each other for my photo mat.

Huge Manor House share...

Well hello there,

Lots and lots of Manor House projects to share today - I hope you have a cuppa!!

First up a layout, Caitlin with her Nanna Wruck...



I just love the "Razzles" flowers - for this page I removed the sparkly centre and added a pearl brad.



Next a little card set...


Next a little play with some masks and a classic colour combo - pink and green...






A little different colour combo for me - how I do love red though!!


A flower bed for this one and using my fav paper right now - Maggie Holmes by Crate paper.
