"12 Tags of 2012" February

I decided at the last minute to have a go at Tim Holtz's '12 TAGS OF 2012"
I whipped this tag up this morning as I think the Feb one needs to be up by tomorrow. Its not the greatest tag as I don't have a lot of Valentines day things in my craft cupboard. Plus trying to entertain Justin & Luke whilst I was completeing it. Those boys are having one of those days.

Kaisercraft "Saturday Sketch" 3

This is my double layout sketch for the Kaisercraft "Saturday Sketch" 3.
The photos are off my Mum when she made her Debut. She was the youngest girl on the night making her debut so she got the honour of cutting the cake. The gentleman who escourted Mum picked her up in his old ute and he put newspaper down on the seat etc so that she wouldn't get her dress dirty.
I used the "Chanteuse " collection of papers and Kaisercraft lace. I also used some fused beaded pearl.
This is my first Kaisercraft sketch.

"Baldwin Family"

This was my entry for the 'Dusty Attic' February sketch.

Another Family tree page

"Love gives us a Fairytale"

This is a recent page that I did for a Valentines day LO. It is one of my Mums wedding photos. I was pretty happy with how it turned out overall. Just love the new Dusty Attic "Lacing Tash", think I will be using these a lot in my layouts.

Princess Catherines Fairy drawers

Kaisercraft Fairy drawers - Kaisercraft "Magic Happens" papers

Cool...I did it, I actually uploaded a photo and here I was thinking I was going to have to wait until DH got home....clever me.
Anyway this is the last project I completed, finished it last weekend actually...this was for Shaun's lil girlfriend and my lil princess Catherine. He gave it to her for Valentines Day. Even now we don't live close by, Catherine is still Shaun's no.1 girl.

the very first one

Well here it is very first blog.
To answer your first question, Why 'The Rusty Horseshoe".
When DH looked into setting this up for me, the first question he asked was, "what do you want to call it" that was it for the night. I went to bed pondering what to call it. I had thought of something crafty so sent a quick text thru to my lovely friend Kez to see if she had any suggestions. She sent thru a couple good ones but I was starting to lean toward something different again.
I have always had an obsession with old horse shoes (I guess something to do with my love of horses) I picked them up as a kid, they were the main focus of decoration at our wedding and have also been a big part of decoration in my house although most of it has been packed away since we got married and we have moved nearly every 2 years.
Last October the boys and I went to vist one of my old friends and neighbour from my Jillaroo days, and Matthew....(who seems to inherited my obsession with collecting old horseshoes) found this horseshoe and sat it up on a fencepost. I saw a perfect photo opportunity as I had not long finished a photography course and wanted to practice what I had learnt. The photo turned out pretty good if I do say so myself and is now the focus point of my blog page and hence its now my blog page name.
Anyway....the main point of my blog is to show off my craft and maybe brag about my kids from time to thing I have to do is work out how to upload my photos...
