My Photo

to take part in a creative blog tour.

As part of the tour there is a set of questions for us to Answer so here are mine.

What am I working on?
I have been in a bit of a scrappy rut for a little while now but with some help for my personal challenge guru, AKA Mandy, I am slowly getting back into the swing of scrapping again. 
I have got a mini album in the works of our holiday up in the cradle mountains with Mandy and her girls last year that I am slowly finishing off.

How does my work differ from others of its genre?
Over the years that I have been scrapping I have tried out most techniques and styles that have come round but have found that I will come back to the shabby layered look I have grown to love.

Why do I write/create what I do?
It is my release, my escape and my me time.

How does your writing/creating process work?
I am what my good friend Jane loving calls a fiddler. lol I enjoy starting off with my photo or card base and then just shopping my stash for goodies to go with it. I could sit with a few things laid out and play with them for hours, changing my mind out about most things several times before anything is stuck down.

I hope that you have enjoyed my part of the blog tour.

And now for my Tagee. Just one as I have yet to here back from the other as to if she would like to play along or not yet.

It's another.

you guessed it Let's get shabby share. lol Looks as if that is all I am scrapping these days but I am slowly finding my way back into doing more of what I love. I have got some other stuff to share but I am going to wait a few days for that. Saving them for something fun.

The challenge this month over at Let's get shabby is a great one. To be inspired by a favorite book. I must admit that this one isn't a favorite as I don't really have one but I am forever hoping that one day I may just be able to do up a place of my own so I wanted to use a home decorating book and just fell in love with the cover of this one I found on Amazon books.

And it just so happens that in my big collection of stamps from when I was on the team over at Purple Onion  Stamps I had the perfect one to use as a staring point.

Hello sweet friend.

I was inspired by the chair, the pink tones and the curved title. I must admit that it did take a while for me to put together and I ended up having my friend Jane laughing at me as I tried to create it but I got there in the end.

As always thanks for popping in, any comments and happy creating.
