Handmade flowers and some layouts to share





Here's some of my handmade flowers for a swap.




And a few layouts....


As I didn't have much info on this photo of my grandmother and her sister I used information about the year it was taken, hence the title '1937'. Its quite interesting to see the cost of things like petrol, houses, milk & bread.

These are some photos I took of some cockatoos in our garden, the cheeky things were stripping all the branches off the Mexican Tree Fern and making a huge mess.




This one features a photo I took of this stunning flower in our dam. I kept it simple so the focus stays on the photo. The paper is a specialty shimmer paper from K & Company's Que Sera Sera range



I've added a few extra pages to my blog, including some quotes and my published layouts, just click on the (invisible) tab at the top.

  5. Hi Miami Kel, They are Sulphur Crested Cockatoos which are native to Australia. They grow to about 50cm long. This was a family of them that came to visit. They seem to like eating the soft new shoots from this tree.

  19. Hi there! I'm Jennipher from the blog group "Glitter Chique". Just wanted to pop in and say hello and check out your blog. I love your flowers and the gorgeous layouts that you created. Just love them. I also host a scrapbook sketch blog called "Scrappin' Silhouettes". You should come play along with a sketch one Thursday if you get a chance because, I would love to feature you as a guest designer but, you have to have played at least one the sketches to be fair to my followers. Have a great Labor Day
