Recent-ish work

Well it's been a while between posts again and early warning, it will no doubt be a long one!! I was trying to get into the habit of posting regularly, so hopefully the new year will kick me back into gear! The last few months have been crazy with selling, finding somewhere to move to, moving, unpacking and trying to get ourselves sorted in general, so it's been difficult to get much of anything done!

After weeks of endless and stressful searching, we found a lovely 3 bed townhouse a little closer to work! I have my own permanent scrapping space next to Ben's PC space on the top floor, so no need to constantly pack it up or worry what state it's in!

We've had a few dramas with a leak somewhere in the ensuite and spent 7 weeks on a mattress on the floor in the spare room until our agent and strata sorted it all out. 5 plumbers later and many a headache, it was repaired and we moved into the main bedroom the week before Christmas. Needless to say we still have a few boxes to unpack and a load at my parents, but we will eventually get there! It's lovely having so much more space, we just have to get used to it!

I have been fortunate enough to find time to scrap, so for your viewing pleasure, here is a collection of work from the last 2 months or so. I hope you enjoy and can gain some inspiration....

A fun LO using Graphic 45.... this pic of my sister and I was taken some time ago at a friend's fancy dress birthday party. It worked so well with this paper range. A few of the details up close...
This adorable munchkin is one of my cousin's kids. They are just so photogenic! These were taken at a family birthday celebration back in June and I just love the pics I was able to capture. I have used a WOW chipboard scroll for this one.

And of course, a few close ups of the details, including some rare journalling from me!

I just love this Kaiser range! I've used a number of WOW chipboard on this one as well.... the dress form, flourish and viney flourish (I don't know the exact names, so head over to the website to check them out).

And the close ups of this gorgeous paper...
And yes the same range again with a different spin.... a cute LO of my sisters's beautiful golden retriever. All chippie is from WOW.

A rare family pic of my hubby and his family...I've used a WOW flourish on this one and one of my all time favourite Basic Grey paper ranges and I just love these Websters blooms.

I simply love this My Minds Eye glittered paper! And a gorgeous pic of my sister and sister in law as well :)

I had a bot of a clean up of my stash and found this old but beautiful Websters range... and some beautiful WOW chipboard which has been glimmermisted! I adore this beautiful pic of my sister as well :)
The pretty close ups....
A lovely reflective shot of my beautiful husband. Using Kaisercraft paper and WOW chipboard.

Another pic of one of my cousin's kids. I simply adore this pic! A bright fun LO featuring WOW chipboard.
And the close up detail of course....

Well I hope you have all made your way to the end and I haven't bored you all to tears. I'll save the Off The Page stuff for another post, just to keep some of you intrigued!

Have a great week :)
