My life through my Scrapbooking Layouts

Where have I been.....

Hi there
I know it has been a while since my last post - I'm not too sure where the time has gone but I have some layouts to share.  Most of these are from my classes that I teach or some that I managed to do at a retreat - I wish I had more time to do layouts as I really enjoy scrapping, but life just takes over at times!!
Anyway, here are some pages that I hope will give you a little inspiration to create your own....

Hopefully I can keep the posts up this year - bring it on!!

Class Layouts.....

I have a couple of class layouts to share, one with a single photo and the other with 3 photos.  I love using my dies and I must say I have a few in my collection from Spellbinders, Memory Box, Sizzix, Sullivans, Cuttlebug to name a few....I would say that my favorite at the moment are Memory Box - their dies are so delicate...just gorgeous and so many beautiful designs to choose from.
Anyway, here are my layouts......

I like to make my own fabric buttons and add them to my layouts....these seem to work perfectly with the papers and theme.

I also like to make by own flowers and love using lace.  I made the frilled lace flower by using the simple running stitch through the seam binding and pulling it together to form a circle - I added a silk flower on top and put kindy glitz in the centre.....perfect.

Scrappin' layouts a plenty.....

I sneaked off to a retreat last weekend up at Mapelton - it was so good to be able to get some layouts done - 21 in all...I was very pleased. 
I managed to get the kid's primary school class photos done - I cheated a little and did each year's page the same for both of them.  I've still got to add a couple of embellishments to some of them and will do that tomorrow at my crop night and then take some photos and post on the blog .

My new order for Memory Box dies arrived last week and I used a few of them at the retreat - I just love these dies - they are my absolute favourite at the delicate and some beautiful designs.    Check them out at

Here are some of the layouts that I did at the retreat.....

I will post some other layouts when I add those extra embellishments.
