Dear Santa....

Hi there!
Having lots of fun with layers and textures at the moment!
Made this lo (and one for my daughter which I will share later) to keep their wish-lists to Santa - so cute!

The papers and punchouts were from an old Kaisercraft collection of Christmas papers ... you know the ones you think you'll NEVER use and then all of a sudden feel the need to use?!? I really enjoyed working with the non-traditional Christmas colours!

Our family is having a 'making Christmas' this year so I have been busy creating gifts for everyone... will share them soon! Have a great day!! xoxo

November Stuff2Scrap Challenge...

Happy Friday everyone!
Just a quick post to remind you all that there is a few days left to complete the Stuff2Scrap November challenge... and it's a doozey!

Here's the low-down....
(1) Paint - but wait! No brushes, sponges, etc. Use your creative hands to get paint onto your layout.

(2) Stacked chippie! This is a great way to use up varying sizes of the same design or combine totally different chipboard patterns, pieces and styles to create something new.

(3) Song lyrics - these can either make up your title, your journalling, or just a line on the layout somewhere. Any song you like is fine, from nursery rhymes to your favourite rock anthems!
Here is my Creative Team contribution...

Loads of fun so be sure to pop on over HERE and give it a go this weekend!!

my boy...

After lots of visitors last week and a whole weekend of painting and renovating my little fella's bedroom (I have been meaning to do this for AGES as it still looks like a nursery and he is almost 4!!!) - I took some time out last night for a glass of vino and a scrap... free and easy... no challenges ... just putting it together and seeing what happened... this is how it came out...

I have just realised that I haven't put a title on it it yet - woops! I will add some journalling too... lol!
Have a great week everyone!! xox

Just for fun...

Finished this lo this morning ... it was TOTALLY inspired by a layout I saw on the Shimmerz blog by Mahlin - WOWZERS!! I saw it and just totally fell in love and had to create something similar. You can check it out here  ....

yup - the glitter glue is still wet so looks a little funny - I'm in a rush as we are getting visitors!!

 SO PROUD of my girl - first prize in the art comp for the school carnival - first out of all the preps!!

Papers are mostly Echo Park; white frame is MME I think (old); green rolled flower and butterflies are made by me; that gorgeous pin is hand made by my beautiful friend Rachael Funnell and the big pink flower and cherry blossom are from iamroses.
That's it for me for now.... have a GREAT weekend!!! The weather is beautiful here so we are going to make the most of it!! xox

November Stuck Sketches...

Had a little play the other day and completed this lo for the Stuck Sketches November challenge.

Have had some time sitting down the last few days thanks to dropping a pair of gardening shears on my foot.. and yes they hit my foot blade first! My first recommendation would be to wear shoes while gardening and the other important piece of information would be don't hold the secatures in your mouth because it's highly likely you will knock them out and drop them on your (bare) foot! Took about 3 hours for my foot to swell and become infected.... I was shocked at how fast it went festy.  Had to have a tetanus shot and now on antibiotics to clear it up!
ANYWAY ... back to scrapping.....

Papers are... yup... Echo Park again... both pieces of chippy (border and the arrow) are Stuff2Scrap

Rolled flowers and acetate butterflies are handmade by mwa and button is Purple Pumpkin.
Thanks for popping by - have a great day!

November 'Scrap the Girls'

WOWZERS... this DOESN'T happen to me very often but I put this layout together today in under an hour and I'm really happy with how it turned out! I literally picked stuff quickly off my table (that was sitting there from some other projects I'm working on) and presto! Anyway - enough of my babbling.....

The challenge is to use mainly pink, multiple photos and polkadots! You can play along here

Papers are a mix of MME and old Crate Paper and that beautiful big pink flower is handmade by my mate  Rachael Funnell - we did a swap and I was lucky enough to score some!! (the spotty button in the middle is Purple Pumpkin)

That cute little heart is a Stuff2Scrap chippy - painted with pink crackle paint - isn't it sweet!!

Thanks for stopping by!!
