I took my inspiration predominantly from the trees which symbolize life and longevity – definitely the case in my ancestry :) And the gorgeous ‘vintage’ brown and teal colours inspired me to choose this photo taken in the early 1920’s, of my paternal great-great-grandparents,

|...always and forever...|
I started off the LO by enhancing the existing brick feature – by adding more ‘brick' shapes with The Crafter’s Workshop brick stencil and Claudine Hellmuth Studio multi-medium. I then coloured the bricks with homemade mist and created from there.
Thanks for visiting today. Have a great week ahead… hugs & hearts xxx Mazz xxx

You will find I have lots of 'favourite' pass-times!! but my favourite 'loves" are: My best friend forever (BFF)soulmate Ian (aka Biggles) and my 2 handsome sons, 2 gorgeous princess grandaughters and an adorable prince grandson - who I LOVE to bits and wouldn't swap for the world. I love to spend time at home in my scrap space and out on our balcony looking towards the glorious Australian bush...I am an obsessive compulsive scrapbooker and scrapbooking products, which I love to share. I also ADORE working with children, love card-making, stamping, collect turtles (not real ones!) postage stamps and postcards,
Cooking, Entertaining, Eating Out, Photography, Listening To Music, Latin American dance, Rock And Roll, watching Movies with Ian. I love to make people smile...I have a passion for people, especially children, from 'diverse' and multi-cultural backgrounds hence my love of travel and sharing different beliefs and cultures as well. so...
"May the wings of the butterfly kiss the sun
And find your shoulder to light on,
To bring you luck, happiness and riches
Today, tomorrow and beyond.
