Sneak Peek Sunday - Soccer with Bling!!

Hi Scrappy Bloggers!
It's cold... it's wet..... the mornings are dark.... it must be Soccer Season!
And as a mother of boys, I'm always on the lookout for boy themed scrap goodies.
So.... are you ready for a sneak peek...?..

How cool is that!? And you can't really tell from the piccie, but it's GLITTER paper!
This particular sheet has glitter dots on the GOAL and on the net, and fine glitter on the ball and goal posts.
So you may not have the sunny days but you can still have a bit of blingness on your soccer pages!
There are 4 designs in the Glitter Soccer collection - three double-sided papers and one die-cut.
Love the die-cut:

Imagine the fun you can have with THAT page!!

They're all available now at

Enjoy your Sunday and the week ahead!

My week on Monday - Hello Driver, Goodbye House

Hi Scrappy Bloggers!

The days and weeks are rushing past...there have already been sightings of the End of May!
This is how my week is looking...

Chocolate Mousse Shots with ganache and Sugar Pearls. These didn't last long in MY house!!

Suzanne Collins - The Hunger Games.
Saw the movie....had to read the book. One of those 'can't put it down' books that finds you reading well into the night!

My son recently got his Learner's License, so a few L-Plate pages are in the works :)

And in case I haven't made it obvious yet....I'm a big big HUGE House this week will be sadly watching the Forever Finale of my favourite TV show ever :(

And that's the week that was...that is....that might be..!

Hope you all have a good one!

So cool! I'm actually hiding these from my son who is so Map Mad...I reckon he'll take one look at these and say "gimme gimme"

As well as the great set of papers, there are also other fun bits to play with and decorate your page. Like these amazing Trimmings:

And a 'Foto Flipbook' that features printed pages for your journaling and memorabilia and 4x6 photo sleeves...for your piccies!

Saturday Scraps - Las Vegas

Hi Scrappy Bloggers

It's about time I started scrapping the big Christmas holidays photos..... here's the title page for the Las Vegas part of our trip..

I love the Best Creation USA papers. They have just a bit of glitter on the pages - on the place title - so perfect if you want just a little bit of blingness on your page. And the background images on the frontside of the pages make them perfect for travelling title pages. Incidently, the reverse sides of these pages is not so busy but have really great designs too.
The bit of blue inking around the photo in this layout is from a Ranger - Tim Holtz - Distress Ink Pad in 'Faded Jeans'. The raised nature of these ink pads make them perfect for direct to paper inking.

Enjoy your weekend!

Words on Wednesday - Counting

Hi Scrappy Bloggers

Well, it seems like I've been awol on the blog front lately. Isn't it funny how life can just get so busy with nothing in particular and before you know's May. Yes...MAY!!

It was back to school last week which usually means less hours in a day....wearing my Aunty Vera hat I've been cleaning and re-arranging the...dare I call it...warehouse space..? All in anticipation of some great new products both arriving and on their way. Wearing my Mother Hat...well, all things school as well as teaching my son to drive and not thinking to grab the camera when son #2 smashes his nose on son #1's skull and drips blood all over the bathroom. Seriously, the next morning looked like a badly cleaned up murder scene!!

But excuses aside, maybe I've been away from the blog for a week because I just lost the days.'s Words on Wednesday come from the infinite source of Words of Wisdom that is my son Master D...

There are three types of people in the world...
Those who can count..
And those who can't.

Boom boom.
Hope you're having a lovely mid-week day!

Happy Scrapping
Aunty Vera :)
