Beautiful Girl

Good Afternoon,

Just a quick post to share my latest layout I have created for Funky Flairs 'N' Flowers.

On this layout I've used a Funky Calico Flower with a flair from the 'Love' range.

This was a fun layout to create - I'm loving this new range of papers from Kaisercraft, and the Calico Flower with this flair matched perfectly.  And who wouldn't love scrapping this gorgeous little girl (my niece).

A Different Kind of Blog Hop

Hi everyone,

A couple of weeks ago, I was approached by the beautiful Marelle, and asked to take part in a different kind of blog hop.  Of course I said yes !!  It's not your normal blog hop, but one where you get to share a little about yourself and meet some new scrappers that you might not already know.

I first met Marelle when we worked together on the Molossi Design Team.  And who would've know that we only live 20 minutes from each other lol !!!  Marelle is a gorgeous lady, lots of fun and a constant inspiration to my scrapping.  Thanks Marelle for inviting me to take part.  Check out Marelle's blog here ....

Here's a little more about me;

1.  What am I working on right now??

I am currently working on a layout for the D-Lish Scraps monthly challenge.  I couldn't resist this challenge, as it includes two of my favourite colours .... kraft cardstock and red!! 
I've also just finished a few layouts for D-Lish Scraps 5th Birthday Cyber Crop, which was so much fun.

2.  How long does it take to create a layout??

Hmmmm, every layout is totally different for me.  Sometimes an idea will come quickly, and I could whip up a layout in under an hour.  However, a lot of the time, I stress over what I'm going to create and it can take hours.  I shuffle papers from one side of the desk to another, and a lot of the time, I come back to the original concept lol !!

3.  What are my favourite things to create with?

That's easy !!   Heidi Swapp and My Mind's Eye .... they would have to be two of my most favourite ranges at the moment. 

4.  What inspires me?

I'm inspired by so many things.  I love to hop around blog sites to see what everyone is up to.  I also love to follow challenges as they certainly help kick off the creative process in my mind. 
I have my own little craft room now, and it's great to put the kids to bed and hide away and craft the night away.  I put on a movie, and I'm set for the night!!  Here's a of pic of my craft space.

5.  What is my signature style?

This is a hard question, but I think my style is fairly neat and tidy.  I don't do a lot of "messy" backgrounds, although I am starting to push myself to try new things, and using sprays, texture pastes, etc. is something I'd like to do.   I have also spent a lot of time recently making cards, so I enjoy both cards & layouts and switch between the both quite regularly.
My other favourite style is Project Life pocket style albums, and this allows me to have uniformity in my albums, but embellished as much or as little as I choose.


Below are the next two ladies that are going to follow me in the Blog Hop, with their posts going up on their blogs shortly.

Dana Tatar .....

I met Dana through the Molossi Design Team, and really love Dana's style and creativity.  I love seeing her work, and you can check it out on her blog too.  Thanks for playing along Dana :)

Michelle Sheehan ......

I've only just recently met Michelle, and we'll be working together soon ...... shhh, secret scrappy business !!!!  As I've just started following Michelle's blog, I'm enjoying getting to know her style and can't wait to be inspired by her creations.  Thanks to you also Michelle for playing along.


Well, thanks everyone for stopping by and taking the time to read a little more about me.  I'm looking forward to blog hopping along with everyone else, and learning more about you all.

Cheers, Honor xo

D-Lish Scraps Challenge #1

Good Afternoon everyone,

I didn't think I'd get another chance to join in the D-Lish Scraps Birthday Cyber Crop, but YAY!! I found some time this afternoon.

My son and I saw a local production of Mother Goose this morning, and he had such a great time.  I think he's finally feeling a little worn out these holidays, and he's having some quiet time while I have a chance to "play".

Thanks Tarrah for this challenge, it was lots of fun.

Thanks for stopping by,

Another Layout for D-Lish Cyber Crop

Good morning everyone,

Just a quick post this morning before I take my little man to the movies to see How To Train Your Dragon 2.  It's a rainy day here today, so perfect for some inside fun.

Here is my take on Ros' challenge #6 over at D-Lish Scraps for their 5th Birthday Cyber Crop.  This one was fun to do - I think the hardest part was choosing which Bingo line I wanted to use.  If you'd like to play along, head over to their blog now and see what inspires you.

Unfortunately I don't have any D-Lish products as yet, but I'm sure I'll be making my very first order soon !!

Sorry for the photo, it's very dull here today and hard to get a good pic.

The Bingo line I chose was metal charm, tag, flowers, flairs and banner.

Thanks for stopping by.

D-Lish Scraps 5th Birthday Bonanza Cyber Crop

Hi everyone,

Although I've had a very busy weekend with the family, it's been fun to pop in and see what everyone's been up to over at D-Lish Scraps.  It's their 5th birthday, and they've been celebrating with a Bonanza Cyber Crop. 

I finally found some time this afternoon to play along with their Challenge set by Leanne, and I had such a great time creating.  It's been quite a while since I've done a layout, so that was a challenge in itself.  But following Leanne's recipe was a great way to get back into the swing.

Here is my layout;

I hope you like it.  Thanks for stopping by.
