This is the start of an inspiration patch, where I hope that fellow scrappers and creators will come and find some inspiration, or even leave some inspiration for me.

He was very happy with his card, but even happier with the Lego he received! ;-) Little boys and their toys!!

Just crazy how each year seems to go faster than the last one!

Party Packs - Our Lil Monster BoBunny

Hello Everyone

It is 2 days to my boys birthday and so we had a wonderful afternoon at the bike park, with a few of his friends and they enjoyed an afternoon of riding and cycling.  It really was so cool!

I only had 10 party packs to make and so I used some BoBunny kraft bags and Our Lil Monster collection, to decorate them.


Here is a closer look at 1 or 2 of them, as I am sure you will be bored if we have to go through each and every one! ;-)



I put their names on each and tried to match up a few more feminine elements when they were for a girl.
So in this case.....a monster eye flower!!!!! ;-))

My sister made this really cool cake for Joe and he was really thrilled.


And lastly...here is the boy in action.


Tomorrow I have a family lunch here at home, so by the evening I am sure I will be quite pooped!!!

Anyways, I hope you have a super evening!
Thanks for popping in!

Tags - Scrapbooking Memories Websters Pages

Hello Everyone

I got the new Scrapbooking Memories and it had some really gorgeous free paper from Websters Pages.
Scrapbooking Memories Vol 16 No 11

So at my scrap and chat last Thursday night, I started making some tags with these papers.

I was thrilled when Vanessa at Scrapbooking Memories shared them on their FB page! ;-)

Here they are.




It just goes to show that any pretty papers, no matter the source, can be used to create something pretty.


Here are the individual tags.






I used the beautiful flowers from Prima...they are really so stunning and then just added cardstock and a few other bits.


Have you created something lately from a magazine freebie?


Have a super evening!

Make Waves - Sketchabilities #119

Hello Everyone

I have a page to share with you today for the Sketchabilities #119 sketch.


I have been wanting to do a beachy page of Joe, for a while now and this sketch just lent itself to the idea in my head.  So I created a mixed media page.


I used the super Pink Paislee collection, Nantucket. I really do love it.


I used some real shells, along with my chippies and woody pieces.


For the sun I cut a circle from one of the yellow patterned papers and really liked these little seahorses facing one another.  Then I just added some thready wool and it became a sun! I thought it turned out nicely.


I used lots of paint, sprays, stamps, dry walling tape and gesso. I really did enjoy playing with all of these mediums.

Overall, it still has a pretty clean look....

This photo was taken last year, when Joe and I were at Salt Rock in September...it really was such a nice time for us and we really did have a blast!

Thanks so much for popping by.
I hope you have a super evening!

Scrap-a-Doodles Design Team 2014 Audition

Hello Everyone

I am applying for a DT post at Scrap-a-Doodles and so this is my audition post to show 3 of my projects and give Scrap-a-Doodles a little taste of what I am about.

My first project is one that I recently did for a DT project at Berry71Bleu and is a canvas - Marilyn. This is vintage style canvas.  You can click on the link and it will take you to the original post and the details on this project. This is one of my favourite projects over the last 3 months or so.


Second is a layout, which I really love as well, and is one about my little family - Today:Enjoy the Little Things. It's a mixed media page, using watercolours and love how it just turned out so perfectly here.


Lastly, I have a card to share - Many Thanks.  It is a thank you card and is a shabby chic/vintage style.



If you would like to see more information on the projects and the materials used, then please click on the links, which will take you to the original posts.

Thanks so much for popping by...
Wish me luck with this audition!
Have a super evening!

MG - Prima PPP July

Hello Everyone

I hope that you are having a great Sunday and that it has been a relaxing and good weekend!

I gave a class yesterday morning, after not having done one for ages and I really enjoyed it, even though I was really tired afterwards! We had some good fun and the ladies pages turned out stunningly!

Anyways, I have a page for the Prima PPP July and it's definitely 4th July colours....;-)

Primapicksjuly

So here's my take on it.


My Dad has this MG and it has been a part of our lives since I was 13.  I helped push it into the yard, when we first got it...I have passed spanners...I have helped with each and every engine overhaul and so yes, I guess I have a little part in it too! ;-)

My Dad and brother fixed it up, from not running, to running and looking perfect! It took a good few years and was definitely a labour of love! Just recently my Dad did the engine overhaul for the second time and so it is in great running order again.

So when my brother was out in May from the UK, we took the MG and my sisters Morris Minor for a Sunday drive, had some breakfast in Parkhurst and then made our way back home again! It was a really perfect day and we had great time together, as a family!


My journalling tells the little story.


I used the School Memories collection, it was so perfect! I also used lots of different Prima stamps for the stamping and coloured the Prima Nieve flowers blue....


I actually mixed two red sprays that I had, one was a Smooch spray that had got clogged and the other, not sure what the name was, since I threw the bottle away ages ago.  So I used this red paint mixture for my paint drops and it remained wet for quite a while but has now dried, as a wet looking drop!!!! It is absolutely fabulous....I think it would make for a super scrapping product!!!!


I used this lovely Enmarc Craft chipboard corner, which I heat embossed and then went over with a white gel pen.

I am really happy with how this page turned out and was definitely a photo I wanted to scrap of my brother and Dad in the MG! ;-)

Thanks so much for popping in...
I so appreciate your visits.
Have a super evening!
