House Proud

Today I had a tidy up- out side! I have mowed our lawns for the last time before spring...I hope! When you have two boys it is amazing how much 'junk' gathers around ones property, our rubbish skip is full and I am feeling like I have achieved something! Tonight I am having a declutter in my craft room...but wouldn't you know it , my junk is all very precious and I can find NOTHING to throw away, anyway as I said, the skip if already full! LOL
Here is a page I have created using my design team goodies from Scrapbook Studio's.
The background is the new Dotty Swiss embossed bazill, I can see I am going to be needing more of this!
These bright houses are cut from a lovely piece of fabric that came in my kit and the felt flowers are from K&Company, also very yummy!
The little cat is a chipboard one from 2Crafty, I have inked him in blue and added some bright spots so he did not feel out of place!

Such a lovely and colorful page, the dotted swiss paper IS a wonderful backdrop!
I Love the look of the yard when it's freshy mowed and trimmed...and then it starts growing again LOL

This page is incredible again! Every time I see one of your beautiful layouts I try to keep it in my mind and use your clever ideas on one of my pages, but it never comes out as pretty as your pages! This one is so cheerful and enjoyable, I truly adore it, it`s lovely! :-)))
Do you make seperate books for each child or do you keep all your pages for your own scrapbooks?
I`m trying to make a nice scrapbook for my son, so he will have some special memories later, there are about 20 pages done already, and when my son visited us lately, I showed it to him and he was truly moved and flattered and he loves it. So I will go on trying to fill the book.
Love, Renate

This one is a hit with all the males who have seen it. I must say that I did not really enjoy painting a truck and it will be a one off for sure! Uncle David is now the owner of this one. Next project on thepainting scene is going to be a fisherman- for my Uncle Graeme who is wanting me to paint him something. Really need to get onto this one!

Finished at last- I think

At last I think I have pretty much finished this painting for my uncle. Do hope he likes it.
