I just love this site.  The works created here are out of this world.  This is my take on the #9 palette.  The colours are absolutely scrummy, really enjoyed this one.  Used lots of pps from Websters, Autumn Leaves MME, Bo Bunny, MM,  Daisy D & Scrapworks.  Decided to hand dye and cut up an old lace doily that was my mum's to add a bit of texture.  Hand cut the Websters and Autumn Leaves pp's for those gorgeous flowers and punched the Daisy D pp with the Martha Stewart doily lace border punch.  Added an old lace flower given to me by my lovely neighbour with a touch of bling peeping out from the distressed edging and a Prima flower with a Prima bling centre.  The floral sticker under the title is from LYB and I recycled the strip at the bottom on the MME Tres Jolie pp for my title as it was very fitting for the page.  Just love how this turned out. 

Scrapbook & Papercraft Expo

Went to the Expo on yesterday with my friend Rebecca.   Found a few bargains and managed to purchase some gorgeous chipboard cutouts that I will use as masks for glimmermisting.  I went to the show determined not to buy any stamp sets, but of course I couldn't help myself when I say the Darkroom Door butterfly set... it's absolutely gorgeous and I can't wait to use it.

Rebecca and I went to a class by Petrina McDonald in the morning and made 2 LO's.  I didn't have the correct size on my photos so I tweaked and changed mine up a bit.  Still tweaking the other LO.  We made some cute ribbon flowers which were so simple and had a play with some paint for the background.. it's so much easier to apply with a credit card.  This is what I came up with.


  1. Awesome layouts! I too love TCR heaps! Palette #9 could very well be my favourite, but I do love them all. I love your paint smears! Great tip with the credit card! :D

  2. Wow "Cathy can't help herself" making the most divine layouts, wow the first for the colour room is amazing, wow you have the most gorgeous style, this layout is divine, you hit the colour combo on the head here, the layout you did with Petrina McDonald with those gorgeous ribbon flowers is just gorgeous too, what a very pretty girl you have, sorry I didn't get to go, will catch up soon. Love Melxx
