Scrapwest Cyber Crop
I made my first waterfall layout, and I tell you, it was a lot easier than it looked. Of course it helped that we had someone telling us how to do everything, but still, it was relatively easy. I am thrilled with the finished product, but need to sort my pics to get one to suit the colours. I WILL get a pic of it up by the end of the week, promise!! :)
After the crop we headed off to Blanchardstown.... 'we' being myself, Deborah, Mandy and Laura!... We browsed around a while, had something to eat and spent some more €€€€ in Inspiring Ideas. It was a blast girls.. thanks!!!

I have 2 other projects that need immediate attention, thanfully I have a crop to go to on Saturday so I will get loads of 'no kids' time to work on them. Assuming I can can keep my mouth closed and eyes down ;) I go to crops with the best of intentions but usually end up standing in a corner somewhere chatting, while drinking yet more coffee.
Right now my house is so quiet, everyone has gone to bed except me. It's so peaceful at this time of night. THIS is why I love to stay up! I could even scrap well into the early hours with no one to disturb me, but I have to be up early tomorrow. So now I am going to clear up my paper/glue mess and then say hello to the inside of my eyelids..... And start all over again tomorrow.

There were two craft stands there, and yes, I was weak, LOL! Along with all the other stuff, I got the cutest lime green Doodlebug craft knife...
......and here it is!! How cute is this?????!!!We were treated to some exquisite homebaked goodies.... brownies and a cookie & choc cake! Delicious, but no doubt my hips won't thank me for it!!!
All in all I had a great time, and we hope to have another crop next month. I travel to Dublin, for our usual monthly crop, next week. Can't wait for that.....

First Local Crop!!
There will be much temptation in the form of the Crafteire and The Scrapbook Store stands!! I can't pass either without fantastic stash calling out to me to bring it home (as if I haven't enough!) Maybe the wallet should stay at home today... or maybe not!!
I get to meet more of the girls from the Craft Supplies site too, which I am quite excited about. It'll be great to put a face to the name, finally! There will be 2 cricuts attending today, with owners of course, so that we.. (we, being the poor souls who don't posses such delightful contraptions) can all sample their delights!
If I do get some work done today I shall post pics as soon as I can. But now I'm going to pack my tote and then I'm off....... catch ya later!

On a Roll!
Once I got my first 12x12 done I was on a roll. After all, I have YEARS of pictures to scrap. With 4 kids I suppose I could scrap forever!Here are just a few of the Princess...
The first one is her 3D scan LO, and was done pretty simply with pink cardstock, ribbon and embellishments.
This one, I loved!! The papers were from a stack a friend sent and they just suited the pics and the theme of the LO. I love how the pictures came out but as you can see her dad is quite shy ;)
This is one of my least favourites. I do like it to a certain extent but I've never been happy with that picture (and it's the only 1 got on Easter Sunday!!). I probably should've manipulated it in Photoshop but was too lazy at the time.
This is the first card I made. I started out a scrapper, and I still am, but I do enjoy card making and altered art. This card I made for my moms birthday, it was a little early as we (me, hubby and kiddos) were flying out to the States on the day of her birthday. Now my mom normally is not impressed by anything, but when she realised I'd made the card she just said 'sure you could do some for us at xmas'.. which I suppose is some sort of compliment.

Welcome to my blog..
It will take me a little time to sort out and upload my 'creations', (and figure out the workings of this site) so there is not much to look at right now.
Please call back soon though :)
