What did you get up to this weekend? I had a little me time & got to it in my scrapbook space & this is what I produced. Based on this sketch from thescrappiest blog.

I love this photo of my youngest, it was taken one bank holiday weekend at a picnic. I chose the title fierce after trawling the dictionary. The definition just sums up my sons bad tempered nature. Fierce ~ Menacingly wild, savage or hostile.

I just love how this page turned out. All patterned papers are from the Pebbles Treehouse Collection, Cardstock from Bazzil Basics. Title letters are Plastino from Bella Blvd.

Thanks for stopping by

Baby Girl Card

Just a little something, something I wanted to share with you all. I made this card last night based on a sketch from Can you believe this cute baby girl card is made almost entirely from stuff in my scraps box & a few extras like the brads & lace that have been laying around my space for some time. Aside from the card blank the only new product I have use here is the row of rhinestones on the hood of the pram. I just love how easy this was & how cute it looks.

Hi Card :)

I just wanted to share with you a card I made today using some of my scraps. I love how this turned out. It is so bright & cheerful. I made this card with the scraps from my pebbles treehouse papers. I inked the edges & added a few embellishments along the way. I sanded the stickers for the sentiment they are from Bella Blvd. I also used Tarynne's sketch from over at if you have a few minutes you should hop on over to her fab blog.

50 Cards in 50 Days Challenge ~ Day 41

It's been a few months since I actually completed a layout for my scrapbooks but that hasn't stopped me thinking or even dreaming about scrap booking. I kid you not I dreamt I made the most amazing 2 pager last week. So literally I have had scrapping on the Justify Fullbrain & when I came across this sketch over at the Sketchy Thursdays blog I just knew I had to use it.
I loved this sketch from the moment I set eyes on it & have been mulling it over all week. I finally got some 'me time' & decided to go to my scrap table & get creative.
So the criteria was set firstly to use the sketch, secondly to use 5 or more pictures & finally to add some sparkle. The later is always a problem for me mainly because my boys are the subject of my pages & they get a little concerned when they see flowers & stickles spilling over my table top. Well here is my finished page & I must admit cropping these pictures to fit the circular design was a bit of a challenge in itself. I really love how it turned out in the end & even managed to incorporate some glittery chipboard flowers, ribbon & pearls into my design.

50 Cards in 50 Days Challenge

So we are onto day 32 of the 50/50 card challenge. I am so far behind it isn't even funny. Everytime I get a chance to sit & create something or someone interupts me. I am trying to catch up & am getting there slowly. Here are the next few that I have completed.

Pacman Birthday

I needed to make a birthday card for my sons 9th birthday at the last minute & here is what I came up with. I just couldn't resist busting out my new circle punch, I never have been able to cut out a circle well. Well my son is a bit of a gamer dude & I thought this would suit him down to the ground. I have been wanting to try an easel style card for awhile now too so this was the perfect opportunity.

I dry embossed the small squares to resemble a grid & then used my new craftwork cards card candy circles. I love these little cardboard circles they are like brads but you just attach them with a foam pad. So simple & easy! I've been wanting to get my hands on these since I saw them online a little while back & found them the other day at my local scrapbook store. I inked the edges of Pacman a touch & added another candy circle for an eye. I then added them to the card using 3D foam tape for a little depth.

All in all this was quite quick & simple to make & I think the bright bold colours are simple & effective. I just love how it turned out & so did my son.

TFL! x
