Little Me!

Hi everyone...hope you are all well and had a great week!

Can you believe it's Friday? I know that I say this every week but they are flying and this week, has been a very busy week for me, lots of crafty action including last minute card makes for Barbara's, Clarity Stamps ~ Pick of the Week which starts today at noon, on Create and Craft ~ I'm well and truly, exhausted and now, looking forward to the weekend!!

But before the weekend starts, there's some more cards to complete and something a bit different to share with you all first scrapbook page!! I hope you like it...
This layout was made using some more of those gorgeous Miss Nelly Kaisercraft papers and chipboard shapes from Merly Impressions and the only extras that I added were some paper flowers from Prima, some seam binding and decorative pins from The Ribbon Girl, some glittered chipboard letters from K & Company and of course, last but not least, the photo!!
Now, my old age, I've become a little bit camera shy and there are very few photos of me in circulation. I hate my photo taken!!!!!! I'm one of those people that if there's a wedding photo, you'll probably find me hiding at the back of the congregation somewhere but when I was little, it was all very Mum and Dad have got boxes upon boxes of photos of me, posing away for England and this is one of their favourites, so I think it would have been rude not to use it! lol
And as you can see, when it comes to age, in a child's life...that 5 months is very important to quote! hehe...

Well, I'd better have one more cup of motivation...a strong espresso is being made as I type and then get crafty!!

I hope you all have a great day and as I mentioned, earlier...don't forget all the Clarity shows that will be popping up on Create and Craft over the next week!! There's some fab stamps and a DVD to be bought and you will not be disappointed!

I'll be back with the copious amount of samples I made for these shows, together with samples that I made for Kuretake and for QVC. This is when you will start to see all my hard work over the last few weeks and I really hope you'll love what I have to share!

See you soon!
Love and hugs, Emma


  1. a wonderful LO,cant believe its the 1st one youve ever done - wish mine had looked that good. That photo of you is fab, can see why your parents love it. Im also a hider if there's a camera about but Ive been like that since I was child, my parents have hardly any photos of me then or now...terrible I know. Have a great weekend!

  2. Wow fabulous LO Emma, love the picture, beautifully embellished. Your samples on the pick of the week are stunning. Tracy x

  3. Aww, sweet picture and a gorgeous LO. Can't wait to see your samples,

  4. Hurrah, I'm so glad you've started scrapbooking, Emma, although like everything you make you leave the rest of us standing. This is gorgeous and what a brilliant photo. Your Mum and Dad obviously had a willing model, it's gorgeous.
    I know what you mean about having your photo taken now. I'm always the one behind the camera and never in front although now DD and Hubby have both got cameras of their own it's becoming harder to avoid them!!
    Have a great weekend and don't work too hard.
    Hugs Lisax

  5. Wow a fabulous scrapbook page, perfect in every way.
    Managed to catch the 6pm show (although didn't realise it was on for 2 hours so guess whose family had to wait for dinner) and saw lots of fantastic samples from you and the other members of Barbara's design team - well done to you all

  6. Gorgeous layout Emma, another string to your bow - scrapbooking - you're a natural!
    I'm with you on the photo thing. Enjoy the weekend.

  7. Emma, those snow landscapes on the Clarity Pick of the Week are just stunning. I must have a go at that technique. It is so effective.

  8. Hi Emma, this is absolutely beautiful! What a gorgeous photo too. I always run away from the camera as well! Looking forward to seeing your next samples. Had a quick glimpse of some of the Clarity shows yesterday and I think I'm getting to be a dab hand at picking your cards out! xx

  9. DAWWWWWW! :D now THAT'S what I call CUTE! :D
    of course I'm rather biased and would just as much love only the picture as anything else but the scrapbook page is also lovely! ;)

    love the flowers and the lettering...I love the "SHH!" as well but the star of the show is the beautiful picture with the even cuter subject! ;)

    dare I say, gorgeous work? ;)

  10. very cute pic, fantastic job, can't believe it's your first one!
