Re-Design Chalk Paste and Ranger Oxides on a chippie!

The chalk paste must be my new toy to play with in scrapbooking.
I love the Oxides and the effect it gives to any project BUT the chalk past is wonderful.
I painted the chippie using both mediums. Just look at the wonderful finish it creates.

I hope you like the result and give it a try.
I will add the steps next time I post.

Have a lovely time Scrapping

As always

Little Birdie Flowers/Penelope Dee "Whisper" collection

Hi Scrapping friends.
I had a lovely creative weekend. So I am showing you how and what I got to do.
I played with the new Penelope Dee "Whisper " collection.
The flowers I chose are from the LITTLE BIRDIE collection and it was the absolute perfect match to the paper.

Please check it out if you are interested.

I have decided to give it a go. I havent been on a D T for a while due to the loss of our son the beginning of 2018. It has been tough going but we just take one day at a time.

To do scrapbooking for me is both therapeutic as well as creative. You cant get any better thank that.

The Scrapbook Studio - Jeffreys Bay

I was super excited to be asked by Cariena Basson of The Scrapbook Studio to come and teach a class in her shop in J Bay.

What an experience!!!!!!! It was amazing. So many new friends and loads of fun we had.

We started the day real early to be in Port Elizabeth at about 8.30 am. We went by road to J Bay.

Guess where our first stop was.

The view from the little cafe where we stopped for coffee!!!

A long story!!!!!!

Hi everybody!!!!!!!!
I have really neglected my blog so terribly.
A lot has happened since September last year.
I have had the wonderful opportunity of going back to work full time and in my favorite shop of all times Beautiful Scrapbooks.
Taryn Johnson is the new owner, and I am managing the shop for her. So it was a roller coaster ride of being busy and getting things in the shop sorted out, new systems and a whole new venture.
For now we are settling into the routine and I am soooooo happy again doing what I love.!!!!!!!!!
I must admit my scrap booking projects have also been neglected BUT all is back on track again.

Our gorgeous new logo.

 Taryn and Yours truly.

Hope you all have a super day.

Keep scrapping

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
