My Girls!

Aren't they the cutest little things ever!

These are my 2 Degus Cinnamon and Nutmeg. I only got them 3 days ago and yet they are soooo friendly, as soon as I open the door to their cage they come straigt out to say hello! They make a right mess but I couldn't have asked for much nicer and friendly Degus than I have :)

I've even created a scrapbook page on them already!
I used the Bubbly Funk Delightful Page kit and I covered the Chipboard heart and thickers with some Pink Stickles.

I have also FINALLY managed to finish LSNED, yay! #

I now have a lovely fat mini book and can say that I have completed one of Shimelle's classes :) Just need to crack on with 'You think you know me' now!
Thanks for looking and have a good day xx

Challenges and More Layouts!

Well, I've managed to get even more layouts done over the past few days, am very impressed with myself it normally takes me ages to complete anything! Anyways have joined a lovely group of ladies in the Sizzling Hot Scrappers team on UKS and Karen set us a challenge to scrap some eyes. So here is my take on it:

Ok, so I did put a bit of a twist on it but effectively my glasses are my eyes, can't see properly without them. And I've never actually scrapped my glasses so this was a perfect opportunity. Photo isn't great, is really dingy in the house today but the papers are really pretty vibrant colours - all MME Bloom and Grow, even the flowers and the ribbon are from the same collection!

Secondly there was a weekly challenge on UKS which I can now join in with again because I am in a group. So here is mine:

The challenge was to -

Scrap something that you take for granted in your life but would miss if it wasn't there - 10 points

Use old (either unwanted/unloved or precious/saved) stash - 10 points

Include vibrant colours - 5 points

Use a circle to reflect the globe - 5 points

So I scrapped water and electricity, I used some old buttons and a photo corner, I didn't really use vibrant colours but I did include a circle - my lollipop flower. So I claim 25 points! yay!

And finally (for now!) some people have been talking about los with no pictures so I decided to have a go. Ok so I took the easier option and only used a 6x12 piece of paper but I think it fitted well. The background was created with bubble wrap and green paint and I have just layered my journalling stuck my title on (the white letters are thickers) and attached some ribbon with some green staples. I think again it is something that needs to be scrapped and I am pleased with the overall effect. Although I do think it seems to be missing something with no photo lol!

Anyways thanks for looking!

More Layouts!

Well here are a few more Los that I have managed to finish this week.

This is me in when I went on holiday at the beginning of the month with my boyfriend. Just love the cute little owls! When I saw the wrapping paper with them on I just HAD to get it! Have used some fabric for the photo mat and some MME bloom and grow paper.

And this one is now officially my FAVE recent page. I just love the colours and those Thickers are the bestest! The flowers are made with some MME bloom and grow die cuts and Collage Press Knave of hearts paper. The dotty back paper is SEI. Love stitching on my los (as you can see I did a boarder on the previous one) and on this one I decided to do 2 different patterns, the blue hearts and green swirl. Strangely I love working on white cardstock and adding patterned papers to it, think I tend to like those los more than the ones with coloured backgrounds!

And finally also managed to finish my Christmas Recipe cards for the swap on UKS:

Applesauce Cranberry Muffins, yummy! Just hope that the other people in my group like them! Had such fun making the lollipop flowers (courtesy of Covertry Ann and her great tutorial (

Anyways thanks so much for looking!
