Just for the odd bit of traffic that may find its way here, hubby & I recently moved & now that work is not totally dominating my life perhaps I'll find some time to get creative again.  A lot has changed in the scrapping world in the 2 or more years that I have been absent... designers are using a lot of different non-traditional ways to put together their kits... I need to take a good look about & see what is trending & hopefully be able to keep up LOL

UNBELIEVABLE

...that 2 years have gone by & I have not touched this site. Needless to say I notice that 4-shared or whatever they are calling themselves now have deleted my account without so much as a warning. Oh well maybe I'll get the opportunity this year to add some new things... last year was the worst year of my life, what with losing family members, then finding out I had life-threatening medical issues, it was not the best of times.
Hopefully this year will be better & I'll get more time to do the things I enjoy xoxo

HAPPY NEW YEAR

August 2009 was my last post... hard to believe that was 5 months ago... I've been so busy with my new part-time job that I seem to have neglected most of the things I love to do!! Not that I can see it improving any time soon but maybe I can attempt to manage things a little better -)
Thank-you to the visitors who still find their way here and I do hope that I can make it worth your while in the near future...
Aside from that I would like to wish each and every one of you a very Happy, Healthy and Prosperous 2010!!
Ronnie xoxo

SWEET POTATO


My first autumn offering is a mini kit with seven papers [900px x 900px x 300dpi] and assorted bows and ribbons. Fairly standard but I've been lax in working on scraps for so long after the loss of mojo that it was an effort to do even a small set, but am hopeful that by making this one perhaps I'll get back on track. I'd like to continue with the Inspired by Linens theme too and keeping an eye out for colours and design that have appeal and show promise.
Thanks for looking!!

FRESH


Well time certainly does fly! Hard to believe that July is almost over already. To think as children we couldn't wait to grow up because the years seemed to drag... but as adults they seem to zoom past in the blink of an eye. So thought it time to post my latest offering. A simple mini kit with a fresh feel to it... there are three fullsize papers included as well as a number of elements... not huge, I know, but certainly enough to decorate your scrapbooking or tags. Hope you enjoy!

SHORT NOTE

So sorry it has taken me such a long time to reply to some queries about the re-uploading of some kits that appear to be missing links. Just checked on 4-shared and for whatever reason those items have been deleted and not by me. When I get some more time I'll try to sort it out again and establish exactly why the links are not valid.
Cheers,
Ronnie xo

Both the Load of Blarney kit and the sunflower *cough splutter* have been re-uploaded for those people who requested though why you would want the horrid sunflower Darlene I have no idea LOL

Some fullsize elements to compliment the papers from the previous kit. There are a couple of experimental items included that I got sick of playing with so please dress them up and add your own touches. Thanks to the talents of ROSE.LI for the incredible actions!

GRUNGY VINTAGE & A NOTE





Was having a bit of a play about with some paper ideas while I've been having a short break from PSP/PS and ended up with something that I hope is a tad different... I've broken the page set up so that those who would like the full-size papers need only download them and the taggers can grab the smaller ones if they prefer... I've also included some elements that I was messing about with though these are only tagger size and I'm seriously not sure if anyone would fancy them anyway LOL there are 7 papers in the set but that took me long enough to make *sigh* and download is via 4-SHARED... I'm mentioning this because there has been a lot of virus and/or adware related issues with some other servers and I'm not saying the one I prefer to use is super-clean either but just letting everyone know so they can choose whether or not to download from that site -)

Now onto something less pleasant... a week or so ago the person who has been doing the rounds of various blogs and leaving uncalled for remarks paid a visit to mine... they left derogatory and disgusting comments that no one with a shred of decency in them would say... I'm assuming that since they find my site so offensive that they won't be back however, I have decided the best thing to do is moderate the comments left and I'm sorry that I have had to do this... after the remarks I almost decided to shut this blog down because no one deserved to come on here and see what was written by that ill-bred and immature girl but because the majority of people who visit here are decent people and seem to appreciate most of what I make then it shall remain open...

Ronnie xo

Thanks to a number of people who left inspiring comments though for some reason when I moved them across to "public" a couple disappeared *sigh* ...but you know who you are and I appreciate it ...and hope you're feeling better too Kirsty xoxo

Goodness how slack have I been with making any scraps lately *sigh* ...I totally lost my mojo or the inclination to do anything so today while I had the painters in decided to have a bit of a play around and came up with this cluster frame. I don't even know that I particularly like it because I just couldn't turn it out the way it looked in my head... oh well at least maybe now I've made one thing I'll get back on track with a bit of luck. The frame is large enough to use for scrapbooking and of course taggers can always resize -)

THANK-YOU ALL


Just wanted to take a moment to thank you all again for the wonderful comments that you have been leaving both on here and when you download. I know it can be a pain now that 4-shared requires you to login each time you wish to remark and I do appreciate it!
Also thanks to Marta [DragonMaiden] for this beautiful tag she sent earlier today, made with my last kit -)

VALENTINE ADD-ON


Thank-you all so much for taking the time to leave such lovely comments. They are all very much appreciated! And YAY Avec Tout Mon Coeur was my first kit to get 1000+ downloads so that's kind of cool -) Today I have a simple alpha to go with the last kit. Had actually started work on a new one but got sidetracked as per usual and ended up with this alpha instead *sigh*.
Ronnie xo

Apologies to those people who have been trying to download the alpha... have re-uploaded it so hopefully it will be right now... you can download HERE thank-you!

WITH ALL MY HEART


At least that's what I think Avec Tout Mon Coeur actually says... it's been a very long time since I did French in High School -) ...and if you're thinking is this really a Valentines Day kit so early... then you would be absolutely right! Worked on it all day yesterday and no point in letting it sit about for another month or two so here it is... the example only shows a few of the items included and I hope you all enjoy...

A safe and happy New Year to everyone!

*Sorry if anyone is having trouble downloading... there seems to be a glitch with 4-shared but I'm sure they'll work it out shortly*

ZAMBOANGA


Things are heating up in the Southern Hempisphere and they're in for a very warm Christmas though I do remember about 10 years back we actually had the outdoor fireplace burning and were sitting about in jumpers... however, that was a rarity!!... the title of this kit is Zamboanga which is a delightful city on the island of Mindanoa in The Phillipines and often referred to as the City of Flowers... it's also where my son's wife hails from and where they were married last January... I wanted an interesting sounding name for this tropical kit and I think it works -)

It's full-size and was going to also post a taggers-size but unfortunately I'm really running out of time and have a thousand things that need doing... aside from that I'm in a creative slump and couldn't even come up with a decent preview... there is much more to see in the kit than what is shown here... hope you enjoy!!

Only a couple more days until Christmas... where did the year go??... I hope you all have a peaceful and wonderful time with your family and friends and a very happy, healthy and hopefully prosperous New Year!!

HO HO HO


Was messing about last week with a gorgeous new Jose Cano tube MPT last week and decided to make a small taggers kit to compliment it... well I'm not too certain about the compliment however, I did make it then ripped it apart because there were parts of it I just did not like... in fact I'm not so sure I truly like most of what's left but I've popped it into four little files anyway in case someone fancies it -) . I would also like to thank Kirsty for the adorabale toy shoppe template available as a freebie on her blog that I have coloured to match the tube and other items in the kit...

GIFTBOXES


Some little wrapped gift boxes to go with the Chrissie sets -)

DECAYED


Tried to think of a novel name for the kit, even to the point of Decade instead of Decayed then I thought someone might think I can't spell -) ...well, obviously I couldn't think of one *sigh* ... and don't think the name infers it's full of rot because I'm hopeful that you'll like and be able to use a fair bit of it ...would you believe there are actually 18 papers ...guess that stems from the cable playing up over the past week ...call it an early start on my NY resolution to make more papers!! ...it's a kind of grungy kit with a girly twist however, some of the papers should work well for a male ...I'd appreciate feedback on this one [if you have the time] with regards to how the papers have turned out specifically and if there are any particular items that you would like to see included in kits that I'm not doing at present, thanks ...if you email please let me know in the subject line that you are commenting on said kit/blog as I've had a few this past week that I have sent to the trash given they may contain nasties ...apologies if yours was one of them -)

Cheers,

GET WRAPPED!


I seemed to spend an awful lot of today working on this kit however, I did manage to make a quiche and some delish seafood chowder so all was not lost -) ...may end up with an addon or two but as it's already past midnight I'm too tired to even contemplate that now...

Hope you find something you like among these items... all are not shown on the example...

Thank-you all for the kind comments!

CHRISTMAS KISSES


Bought myself some more actions while they were on sale... hopefully they still are given hubby just said "go for it"... don't think he realises just how far I might -) ....

There are a couple of okay papers and a couple that suck *sigh*... often wonder why at times they turn out okay and other times well... they just don't!! I think my goal next year will to consistently make decent papers... hmm... I can always hope -) ...also included are some decorations, a stocking to pop your goodies in, some grungy stars, a ribbon bound frame or two... some other bits and pieces and a tree to hang it all from...

Hope you enjoy!!

DING-DONG


No it's not Avon Calling... was playing about with some dings and thought it's almost that time so had better get them out fast though I'm sure you all probably have more than enough Halloween goodies -)

MATCHING ALPHA


Here is a basic chipboard-type alpha to go with the Naturals Papers... cable had been out for a couple of hours so decided to make good use of the time... after I did the dusting of course -)

NATURALS PAPERS


Hubby had to work until 1am this morning which is absolutely ridiculous... supposed to finish around 5pm so he had a 17hr day and what's more the company didn't even provide a meal... I don't know how they get away with things like that here... back home they would have gotten paid double-time plus a meal for every 3-5hrs they had to work overtime... I could get on my political horse here but I won't *sigh* given I said when I first started this blog that I wouldn't waffle on... anyhoo, due to me being awake for so long I ended up playing about with some papers and came up with a few in pale shades of... hmm... I suppose you could call them a sort of taupe-sand if that makes sense... you'll just have to look for yourself... hope someone likes... I'll probably get motivated to make some elements of a sort to go with them sooner or later -)

TROPPO TAG


Thought it might be a good idea to make a tag with the Troppo kit just to show what can be done... it was awfully quick but I'm sure you get the idea -)

GONE TROPPO


Title is Aussie slang for "going a bit nuts"... though I prefer to think of it as the term used when I went to far north Queensland for the first time and the heat hit me like a ton of bricks... I seemed to lose all train of rational thought and strangely enough laughed all the time... hmm... guess I never completely recovered!

There are 10 papers in this taggers size kit and that's a record for me... I'm not too sure about half of them but the rest I think may be useful... the aqua/blue wavey one actually looks like the quilt cover on my bed though that is in shades of wine, browns and creams... a couple of flowers [yay I'm the proud owner of a PS action]... some strange little doodle thingies... a pair of thongs [flipflops] for when you're heading to the beach... don't want to cut your feet on those broken beer bottles... a few bugs, even a mozzie because they're always about in the topics... an umbrella to keep the rays off... a bit of wordart... in general, just bits & pieces that you may end up trashing but I had fun messing about making them all the same -)

Thanks for the nice comments that my visitors leave and hello again to my friendly neighbourhood stalker crazyscrapwitch -)

MORE CRAZINESS


I could say I had some time to kill today but in fact I didn't... should have been busy doing housework, instead I found myself looking for tutorials on how to make haunted houses *sigh*!! Well, I ended up finding one though I didn't entirely finish it, I figured just the basic house was enough. Then I saw a house on someone's blog and of course now the name escapes me so I can't direct you there but I made my own version, though not as wonderful as the one I saw it might make someone happy -)

HALLOWEEN CROOKED HOUSE


This house is not totally bent but it's definitely on the way -) ...just something I was messing with after seeing a few other Halloween items about the place ...it could use some fine-tuning but it still "runs" ...example tag will take you to the download and thanks for looking!!

MIXED FALLINGS


Okay, so it's a crazy title but I really had mixed feelings about this kit... it was just a little something I was messing with because I adore autumn colours then I had a go at a pumpkin because I saw one at my favourite scrappy place to shop but of course I couldn't get the shading right but one can always disguise that hey -) ...so next it was a QP and as you'll be able to tell I'm sure, it was my first attempt and I'm thinking perhaps my last too!! But what started it all off was the piece of wordart that I did last month... naturally it says September so bloody useless now... well there's always next year -) ...anyhoo, to cut a long story short it's only in taggers size but there are a few grungy papers and a poor old flower that I made with one of the only few scripts that I have for PSP *sigh* ...one day maybe I'll purchase some more instead of attempting to make everything by hand so to speak [you know, those cool preset shapes thingies]

Thanks for checking it out and I'm hoping someone may find an item they can use!!
