Hey there - Welcome!
 Today I'm sharing a Scrapmatts DT layout of my daughter...
 'Little miss Mackenna ~ Red Riding Hood'. Well as you can see here, I do love my fussy cutting of paper - and this top layer of Prima paper was made for it!

I love the delicate and fine pieces of chipboard from Scrapmatts - a perfect highlight for clustering with flowers and  the coloured word tags are perfect for those like me that don't journal on pages!

Thanks for dropping by. See you again soon I hope.

Heavy on the Metal!

Hello everyone and hello to my lonely blog I have so neglected! I sometimes dislike that I am a computer dummy and when it decides it's not going to be co-operative for a month 'I really hate that fact'.
Today I'm sharing my DT Canvas for Scrapmatts Australia.
There were a few rules I had to follow - I think I went overkill on the last rule?
- must be a specific photo size of yourself (hate selfies).
- must be on the this specific canvas
- and if you cannot tell it's for Scrapmatts then you haven't used the canvas and products properly.
'The quiet me'
Love this background paper -7 Dots Studio!
Not going to push my luck - making it a quick & short post incase my computer rejects me.
