Rocky was my mum's Rottweiler, he was 11 years old and he passed away yesterday, Friday the 13th April. What a gorgeous soul and special boy he was. He never complained and never whinged, and when there were anywhere up to 8 dogs in the house, he was happy to get along with them all......This page was done a long time ago but id like to give it another showing in respect of Rocky, or Rock-a-doodle he was known.

STEAMPUNK PRINCESS - Scraps of Darkness

I love steampunk, and having only just gotten the hang of it, I am loving it! I have used this picture before, but i love it so have given it another run, I love the grungy gears, I got them from ReneaBouquets....her etsy store is to die for! and The dress form is from there also....TFL

TAG - Zeus and Zoe

Hi all, Well I finally got my first Zeus and Zoe kit in the mail, well to be honest all 3 came at once.....yeah I know Im tragic! Anyhoo, I had to dig right in, they are to scrumptious for words, so im doing a layout, but first, I had to do a tag..there was a tag in the kit, gorgeous to from Berry71Bleu, but i wanted to make one with my colours and image..and these kits are so full of wonderful goodies, it wasnt hard....and that leaves my berry71bleu tag for another layout...( see method in my madness) .You  really have to check out Zeus and Zoe Etsy store, its the 2nd store of Marivic Clifton better known as Berry71Bleu.
These yummy kits are flying off the shelf and you best be fast.

Well I saw a layout of the most gorgeous Dog id ever seen , besides my own. I had never seen one before.....So I emailed the creator and soon learnt that Gracie was a bearded Collie....and what a gorgeous I asked her Mum Laurie could I scrap her, and I did....This is the result.....I posted it off to the USA....Well it arrived in time for Easter and Gracie sent her the most darling way....
Isnt she the cutest fur Baby.......

Mother - Needful Things

This is my Mum, as a little girl, living in Papua New Guinea. The gentleman sitting in the car was the family driver, he drove my mum and her brother to school everyday. Nan and Pop moved to PNG after WW2, where they lived for a few years, till they came back to King Island in Australia. this photo is very old and cracked, so i had it reproduced so i could keep it as it is. Her little cane basket was woven by the natives up there. Nan reckons it was a wonderful place to live back then.....I used the Scraps of Darkness March kit, called Needful Things....WOW what a kit, it keeps giving.....Thanksto Reneabouquets for her grungy gears, they are in her etsy store, check them out! Fab stuff! perfect for this kit!

" I love you more today than Yesterday, But ill love you even more tomorrow".....
This is a line from an Elvis Presley song from Blue Hawaii......Its very fitting!
