Brave boy and 7 dots...

Hi everyone
Just wanted to share with you my latest layout published in the 7 Dots studio blog.
This is a photo of my boy straight after having nose surgery earlier this year, He woke up like nothing had happened.




I have used lots of amazing products from the latest "Destination unknown range". The colours are amazing!

New do!!

Hi!
I have just popped in to share this layout! I LOVE these pics of Will's new do! Hair do I mean! LOL!
I think he likes it too as he wanted photos !



I created this layout for the latest challenge at the Paperdvizhink site! The colour combo this time was this....
I created this layout while at scrappy weekend last weekend which I organised in Port Fairy. I had the best time! We laughed . we ate, we talked and we did some "speed journalling". Yep you heard right, speed journalling! We had been exploring the little shops in town and we had bought a book to alter from the op shops. We then decided it would be fun to each adda piece of ourselves to each others journals. The catch was you only had 3 minutes each round and then you passed it on! Well to begin with we all freaked out but then it was so fun and so addictive we ended up journalling for 7 hours!!! LOL! I will share these pages really soon when I photograph them!

I also want to share this one with you. I created this layout based on the sketch challenge at scrap the girls.


Ok, so I have used a bit of creative license here. I have rotated and instead of a banner I have added a series of circles. 



                                     I taught Maya how to make daisy chains and now I often find her doing so in the garden or anywhere we go that has daisies in the lawn.

7 Dots "warm and cosy" challenge

Hi everyone!
Just wanted to pop by and tell you that the next challenge is up on the 7 Dots blog!





The theme this month is "Warm and Cosy", which is ironic actually as the layout I have created was a photo taken on the coldest day of my life!!
We were staying in Ballarat while Will had to compete in a soccer tournament! I don't know he did it! It was nearly snowing and it meant that it was just too cold for us all to stand and watch. So my husband and I took turns at watching and stsying back at our accomodation to keep Maya warm.
This photo was taken of Maya on one of these days at the Caravan park while waiting for Will. She (for a brief moment) put on her gumboots, beanie and gloves and splashed in the puddles! At least her feet stayed cosy and warm !!



So i hope you all have a go at this challenge!! The rules can be found on the blog! Have fun!

It's always funny when you find selfies on your phone !


And Maya is reknown for it lol!!! I always get the giggles when I discover new photos and videos on my phone and they are so fun to scrap! Especially when you have cool products to use from 2 Crafty!!


This time I have used one of the many different chipboard titles  you can purchase from 2 Crafty.
These titles make it so easy to add original, fun and interesting titles to your page which sometimes I find the hardest thing to do!!! 
This one " "Here's a funny story" could be used in so many different ways . I have used it on these crazy selfie photos I ALWAYS find on my phone of my daughter.

I have used white cardstock as my background and used a "Dina Wakely" mask to add colour with @13 Arts mists . 


I decided that the title looked better left in it's raw form this time.

These photos always make me smile when I discover them on my phone! 
Shes such a funny. outgoing girl and I love how these sorts of photos show that side of her!

I have also used another arrow from the  assorted arrow pack and the tiny stars from the ATC tiny stars and hearts pack! To colour them I have used Faber Castell gelatos. I love these sorts of assorted packs as they go such a long way and are extremely versatile.

More cupcake kit inspiration....


Hi again everyone!
I have another bright layout this time to share!
This time it's a photo I took at one of my son's soccer tournaments of all the different coloured boots of his team mates!!!

The colours in this kit worked perfectly!!


The Basic Grey Sticker sheet was the main feature of this layout , as most of this page is made up of elements on it including the frame, labels and triangles which were also meant to be photo corners.




I have added some masking with some modeling paste and some mists to add more colour to the layout before adding the kit contents.
I have also used from the kit some of the papers which I have cut into circles, the alphas , the washi tape and the sequins. The other items you see are from my own stash!



Happy creating,

Haven't done this for a while!

Hi everyone,
I was looking for a challenge to create the other night and I went over to The Color Room and took a look at their latest colour pallette.


I have followed the colour palette however I used brighter versions ;/ ( LOL)



And yes! You see right....I have used a flower!!!! LOL!!!
It was a fun layout to create! To incorporate grey I used grey lead pencil and grey alphas. 
I tried t draw with a tooth pick but it didnt work so I used the end of a toothpick to do some small dots amongst my paint splatters!!
So I did use them I promise!! LOL
