Fab Scraps

Good morning from a very EARLY morning here in South Africa..
I have a cat (a real Tabby) her name is Gabby and boy she is driving me crazy. 
She calls me early in the morning and then as soon as I am awake she goes right back to sleep. I on the other hand cant do that. Once I am awake that's it. So hence the EARLY blog post.

As you know I am on the design team of the Fab Scraps Range of products. 
I have been busy with the product lately. Today I would like to share some of the pages I have done.

I hope you have enjoyed the pages.

As always

Just chatting!!!!!!!!

Good morning everybody. Oh my goodness I have neglected my blog tooo much!!!!

So sorry I have been so busy. We lost one of our four legged babies last weekend and it was traumatic to say the least. Gigi was our baby cat and a real little brat at that. But we miss her and of course no crafting was done.

I have picked up my game and are back crafting again.

I have a class at our local scrapbooking store "Beautiful Scrapbooks on Sat 10 th September.

Sharing today what I did.

I used the amazing new colours of K Craft glimmer spray.

Coloured this gorgeous owl using the spray. I mixed the 3 colours.

I coloured my prills. You can also colour beads or sylica gel balls using this.

Some stencil bumping.

And a snippet of the finished project.

As always I would appreciate your input.

Good morning girls

Oh my goodness we in June already. Where o where does the time go??????

I have  been a bit absent here. The horrible winter flu here in South Africa got a hold of me and I was down for a week.
I am on the mend and able to function fine.
I have bee awake since 3.30am this morning. Had to get hubby to the airport  for his flight to Namibia.

We live about 20 km from O R Tambo Int Airport so its really very quick.

So I have been so unproductive this last week. I will really have to up my game.

I hope I will have something gorgeous and inspiring to show everybody soon.

As always

Keep scrapping
