Some Scrappiness :)

I was lucky enough to get my hands on the new Kaisercraft lace packs and pearls brads. *swoon* My favourite would have to be the 'natural' lace pack and the ice blue pearl brads...I have used a whole packet of the lace already :O

I used some of the lace and brads to create this LO, using a pic of my mum and me as a baby. She used to call me 'my precious firstborn'.
It made me feel special.
I remember walking into her hospital room after travelling from Mundubbera to see her. She held out her hand and said "hello my precious firstborn"...That was the last time she would call me that :(


I used lots of crackle paint, and the gorgeous Secret Bird Society patterned papers...this paper range is gorgeous! The muted colours are perfect for any sort of LO!

I made the cute little rose out of the Kaisercraft lace and a pearl brad. Cute!
And don't forget that Wicked Princesses are hosting a dreamy cyber crop this weekend...you could win vouchers for playing along..why not give it a try???



Thanks for stopping by...have a good weekend!

Hi there, I just came to visit to say thank you for visiting my blog, was lovely to read your comments. On following you over here and reading your story, I'm now wanting to send you my love. My cousin Donna was only here visiting me this week and told me the sad news about your Mum. I know nothing I can say can take away your pain but I just want you to know that so many people are thinking of you and sending your love (even those that don't 'know' you, like me). May our cyber hugs give you some comfort, if anything. I will definitely be back to visit you again, love your work and can't wait to see more. xoxo Cheers, Sar
