Merry Christmas...

With the silly season in full swing, its Christmas eve and I have 3 days off to spend some much needed time with my beautiful family.....YAYYYY!!!

So much has been happening and working almost full time in the lead up to Christmas I have not had a lot of time for scrapping....let alone sharing any work!! With my body clock still in night shift routine here I am at 4am wide awake and feeling like I should be working BLAGH!!!

But what better time to think about all my fellow blog followers and thank you all for taking the time over the last 12 months to pop past, catch up on my crazy life and to see what creations have been happening.

So to each and everyone of you, I wish you the very best for a wonderful Christmas and a safe and happy New Year.

Now since its Christmas I thought I would share my Christmas Angel. With thanks to the very talented Melanie Forbes, I had a go at making a Angel from an old dish washing liquid bottle....oh my god how simple and fun these are!! This one I made for my MIL for Christmas, she loves hand made things and with all the gifts I have made her over the years I am thinking I will have to pull out my cabinet making skills and pull together a display cabinet LOL!!

So now I present to you......Christmas Angel

Full Front View - Christmas Angel.

Top Close Up - Christmas Angel.

Back View - Christmas Angel

I also made a set of 3 little houses that stand in front of my Christmas Angel. Another fav of my MIL's is my little houses that I put together (she almost has a village now LOL!!) I used the matching papers from Kaiser that I used on the Christmas Angel.

Christmas Village - OTP Houses.

A layout I created in the start of December, I have had this pic for 12 months now and it was only by going through the last 12 months of pictures that I realised that I had not scrapped up these gorgeous Santa pics. The girls Brownie unit is lucky to have a very special Santa that takes the time to come past every year and see the girls and their families......So do you believe in Santa??

And this very last layout I created was from another old pic I found of myself and my gorgeous hubby at my cousins wedding back in 2009.

Its rare for the hubby and I to get a pic together, so I was thrilled when I found this one.

So with that, I wish you all the very best for Christmas and New Year, and look forward to sharing much more with you all in the coming year.

Until next time, take care of you and happy scrapping.

A very BIG Twiddley welcome to you all.

I see that you have all managed to hop your way over to my blog from the very talented Geraldine Pasinati and I look forward to sharing some of my recent projects with you all. Just remember that Geraldine's blog now has 2 secret words to collect, so be sure to keep your eyes open and grab that 2nd word!!

Firstly I am just giving you the "thumbs" up LOL, that due to a recent accident, I have broken my right thumb and the work that I wished to have finished and share with now sitting on the back burner (insert very sad face) until I get the use of my thumb back again.

Ok so onto some sharing of my recent work.....

I love this layout, it has A BEAUTIFUL picture of my daughter Matilda when she was 4 and its one of my all time fav pics of her.

Layout - little girl.

Layout - Handsome Prince
Another fav layout of recent, my little man Kai on his 5th Birthday. Gee he has grown so much since this pic was taken almost 2 years ago!!

This next one is my 2 older girls, likewise they have both grown so much since this pic was taken yet its another one of my favs!!

Layout - My Sweet Girls

Finally my latest off the page creation. I combined 12 ATC's (artist trading cards) with a Santa Sleigh and the large Easel. I love the Vintage Christmas theme and when I saw the latest Kaiser range they were perfect!!

And now finally to finish up a little sneak of some of the goodies that are in my RAK that is up for grabs. Be sure to leave a comment and I will place you all into the draw to win some gorgeous Twiddley and lots of other yummies.

So best you now be hopping along to the ever so talented Ann-Marie Cox, who I am sure will blow your minds with her amazing work. Also make sure that if you are in the Sydney area today then pop on down to the Papercraft show at Penrith and catch up with Nic & Andrew.

Until next time, take care of you and thanks again for hopping along on the Twiddleybitz blog hop. Mwah Karen M xox
