Little Me and Mom

This is my entry for the Sketch 8 challenge over at Scrap Africa..I discovered my childhood photos and are totally in love with them. I was about three years old on this photo and we were visiting friends of my mom. The flowers on the corners are hand-made. Other products I used : Maya road chip board letters, Tim Holtz Rosettes, Zva Creative Swirls, Martha Stewart layering butterfly punch which I sprayed with glimmer mist. I love to tear my cardstock and then sew the edges. I made incisions  on the butterflies on the patterned paper with my craft knife  to overlap my photo. I distressed the edges of all the papers and photo. Thanks for looking. Here is the sketch:

Timeless Treasures

I also enjoy scrapping “things”. This layout was published in the August 2012 Scrap Affairs.  I took the photographs at an art market in Pretoria and in Clarens. I used paper from a very old Webster’s Dictionary which I inked and distressed. I googled the music pieces, news papers and patterns  and printed them on cardstock. Other products used : Martha Stewart border punch and Maya Road.

Love You Seven Days A Week

This is one of my entries for Challenge 7 over at Scrap Africa. The challenge is "About A Boy" .


This is my second entry for Challenge 7 over at Scrap Africa. The challenge is "About A Boy". This is a layout of my son Nico. I did quite a bit of layering and lots of inking and some stitching on this layout.  For the title I used Making Memories sponge stamps and repeated his name with rub-ons. Other products used: Maya Road, Jenni Bowlin and Bo Bunny.

Enjoy Life

This is my daughter Karen during our last winter photoshoot. She is my favorite scrapping subject and always willing to pose and dress up. On photo days we pack a suitcase full of hats and scarfs and different outfits. On this layout I used the wonderful Tim Holtz products.


 I was very honored when Marike, my future daughter in law asked me to take her graduation photos.  She is so spontaneous and fun to photograph.  On the right hand page is a little book that opens up with more photos and journaling.
