A New Hobby...

We spent a few days away holidaying at Shearwater resort recently. Whilst walking around the shopping complex just over the road from the resort, I spotted a lovely little shop called Paperdolls Scrap'n'Card. I fell in love with all the pretty cardstocks, ribbons and lace! I purchased a few things, in pic below. I was given some catalogues by the owner of the shop to take and have a look mind was racing with all the ideas for scrapping, journals and cardmaking!!! 

I came home searching the internet on cardmaking and all the products available, and was quite overwhelmed at all the products available! Let's just say that the postman is going to be very busy delivering parcels next week! hehe!

A new shop opened up here in town a few months back, which I only managed to visit yesterday...and look what I found

the prettiest vintage lace, old postards and vintage buttons

They are going to come in very handy!!

all these ideas have had me looking back through my old journals, one of them Helen Stubbings "Life is Beautiful' journal. I really loved decorating the cover with my handmade crochet motifs and vintage laces and buttons from my stash. And now I have a few more to work with!(If I can actually cut into them that is)lol

Yes Life is Beautiful! Oh the excitemaent of finding a new hobby!

Bye For Now

Scrapbooking and card making are so fun, but it can get very expensive. I've been doing it for 15 years and I can't imagine how much I've spent through the years! Have fun!
