I've scrapped!!!!!

for some reason i just haven't been able to sit in my room and scrap.. perhaps i just needed time... time to heal after the terrible floods.. but today i found that just sitting and creating was a time to be quietly productive. i chose to try the sketch for February from Flourish with a Bling Blog.  above is the sketch, which i rotated once clockwise... and then  my take on the sketch.. i used the basic grey curio papers which i just had  to cut up... thanks so much for visiting.. i hope you have a great day..xx

i havent been able to do any scrapping  for two weeks.. i hope i can do some scrapping very soon..(i am sure my mojo is in my scrap room somewhere!!!)  i need the therapy and need to take my mind off things... but i can show you what i did two weeks ago.. a sketch  from scraphappykat ..... which i turned anti-clockwise once....       the photo is hannah at Straddie when we went there for a weekend in march 2010.. thanks for looking.. and i appreciate you taking the time to add a comment...

floods of sadness

hi all.. i haven't been on my blog this last week as my neighborhood has experienced the most devastating floods.. our home was spared by the grace of God, but there have been at least 4 homes from up the road, just taken away by the fast and furious waters on Monday 10th January..there are still people missing.. i am sure you will join me in praying for all the areas affected by these widespread floods.. i know in the weeks to come i may need my scrapping as a therapy, but for now, each day i hope brings some healing for all those dealing with the loss and heartache from this natural disaster...thank you dear blogger friends.. i hope you all are safe and well.. take care.. love lizzy..xx
the first photo shows the water level on the bank, if it had come over the bank i would have had seconds to get on the roof of my house with my daughter who is 10 years old.. the second photo shows the water just pushing past our bottom fence and charging towards the creek bank.. this photo doesn't show the width of the creek which was unbelievable..xx

Get Picky...

the latest Get Picky Inspiration Challenge -
was to take this picture.. and do a layout... and this is what i came up with..
i took a lot from this picture - the green tree with big baubles are in my layout, the stripes from the curtains are in my layout on the left side, there is a vase of white flowers which i have added to my layout, there are candles and a wreath, the tassels from the rug on the lounge inspired me to add a ribbon with trim, the rolled paper were inspired by the pillows on the lounge and the overall color scheme is based on the soft colors in the picture, and my tree was in front of my wood heater at home so i thought the photos were a little similar.. so i took a lot from the picture to make my layout.. thanks for much for popping in...
