I always get so excited when I open a magazine and see my work in there.  Here is my contribution  to the newest Cardmaking, Stamping & Papercraft magazine.

I bought these stamps last year when we went on a trip to Bowral.  I just love them.
And the chipboard shapes on the cards were a present from a special friend for Christmas.  She knows me well obviously!  Thanks Debbie.


Some Paper Therapy


raining all day

soccer called off

photo shoot postponed

boys on playstation (big one included)

equals scrapbooking time for me!!!  Yay!!!

And I finally, finally finished Nathan's birthday book from when he turned three (yep, over twelve months ago).

The bug has bitten and I can't wait to be able to do some more.

Photo Shoot

My friend Liz has been doing a photography course online over the last few weeks and asked me to 'model' for her to practice.  While I don't usually like having my photo taken, I jumped at the chance because in all honesty I have very few photos of myself.  

I love how they turned out.  Here are a few of my favs:

And tomorrow she will practice on the family.  Can't wait.

Two posts in one day and the reason is because I scrapped.

I had given up on digi scrapping for quite a while now and tonight I decided that I needed to go back to it.  My scrapping studio is outside in a cold metal shed where I don't desire to spend cold near-winter evenings so therefore, I don't go out there.  And therefore, I don't get any scrapping done.  Hopefully, this will all change one day but in the meantime I think I need to get some digital scrapbooking done.

I was looking through my photos and came across this one.  I took it a couple of days ago and felt the need to record the moment straight away before I forgot the feelings this picture evoked.  It's a cold night and I am sitting in a warm lounge room in front of my favourite show and the computer is the best way to scrap it.  So here it is, my first digi page in quite a while.

Love these boys.

Just a little therapy..... all anyone needs.  
Card making and papercrafting is my therapy.  Scrapbooking is taking a backseat at the moment, so I need to do something about that.  I miss it and there are stories & memories that need recording.

Anyway, here are some more cards I have been creating:

Busy, busy, busy

Life has been super busy lately with exciting things going on at the Hughes household.  Squeezing in a little cardmaking when I can as I am getting ready for a Craft Expo this weekend.  Find details here.

Love this little Stampin' Up set called Crazy for Cupcakes.  Used it with some paper scraps to whip up this cutie.
Hope to see you at the Central Coast Craft and Quilt Expo.

Catch Up

Life has been very busy and I'm lovin' it.  Was going through (and sorting out) some photos tonight and found these projects:

I created this for Mum to give someone for their 21st Birthday a while ago.  I love these colours together.  

I had to create a special sized envelope for the card.

And of course I had to co-ordinate the gift.
Off to see what else I can find.
