7 Wonders of the World - Week 6

Week 6 is the Colosseum - arches, scallops & curves - layers of them.
So I am running a little behind as I really struggled to get my head around this and I wasn't happy with what I was doing so I put it aside for a few days an then restarted again!  I used the photos of my Darling Husband as a toddler about 3 I guess...Then pulled papers, inks and started to age the paper with The Tim Holtz distresser applicator and brown colorbox inkpad...not bad!  The laughter chipboard I used peach and blue colorbox inkpads.  Martha Stewart Punches were used to create the layered look.

The final result;
Have a wonderful weekend!

Oi so tired...

Well goodmorning for this sunny Saturday!

I am so tired after a long night with the 9.5month old, forgot how tired you can get with a baby especially whilst they are teething and we have the luxury of 2 teeth coming at the same time.  Thought I would share a wonderful site where I buy stamps from and I Luv the designer Elisabeth Bell - her work is beautiful hence why I frequent this site and buy these kits;

I finally purchase this kit yesterday now just to await it's arrival!  These are available for pre-order at Whiff of Joy
Have a lovely weekend!

Looks like I forgot Week 4...

The Hagia Sopia what a challenge this was...

We were to draw inspiration from the Hagia Sophia and incorporate a mosiac in some way (either with your photos or with decorative elements or papers) plus at least one of the following...
>> Eclectic mix of materials which may not normally be seen together
>> Gold elements to reflect the extensive gold used inside the Hagia Sophia.
>> Materials with an opulent feel to reflect the sumptuous interior of the Hagia Sophia
>> The evolution of an aspect of your life (or someone important to you)
>> Circular elements to reflect the Hagia Sophia’s dome.

Well I came up with this

I got fancy an made a mosiac of my photo of my lil sis and my daugthers

Did she say "No Flowers"?

Week 5 is apon us at for the 4.7.11 challenges...The Northern Lights
The Challenge was;
      no.1. Your layout must have green on it.  Okay I can live with that...
      no.2. No Flowers of any kind - Once apon a Time this would have had me screaming "NO!"and tearing my hair out, but with time comes growth so this challenge I accepted.
     no.3.  There must be at least one insect or animal on your layout...this got me thinking!!!

I really was feeling creative - So in conclusion I came up with this layout...I adore my husband! This is he as a toddler he was so darn CUTE!!!
So have a wonderful day no matter what you are doing!

Just for today!

I created this next Layout just for Ruth's Stamps and Crafts for her March Sketch -Challenge Ruths Stamps...This is a first for me entering into a challenge on another blog - but I know Ruth so trying something different when you know someone makes it a little without further ado here is my take on her sketch
Simple it is but effective - Mix of flowers which I hung the purple butterfly charm from which is so cool, my Cricut Expression cut out the Word Beautiful from chipboard with the help of my Gypsy - still getting used to the Gypsy.

Anyway have a lovely day!

Okay so I am little behind at the moment...I have just finished week 3 & yesterday week 5 was uploaded - oh well there is the challenge for me.  This week was on Zeus
Here below is my Layout for this weeks challenge...mind you it is so hard to get much done with a screaming baby who always wants me...
So there you have it all done

Week Two of 4.7.11

 I had to take inspiration from this picture The Great Barrier Reef;
Thus I came up with this layout using a photo from when my husband was a teenager. 
I Love wetting paper drying it ripping it and doing it all over again which I did to the orange peice, then I inked it!  Plus the Glimmermist spolted onto the backing paper.  The M & W of Mini waters I used Opals Ultra Thick Embossing Powder.

From the Scrap Room!

Thought I would update what I have done so far this past three weeks - firstly WEEK ONE of the 4-7-11 at Little Scrapbook Shopwas a pyramid OTP so here is mine...

My little sister came for a visit for the first time since we moved West and I am so glad she did...She got to meet her 2nd Neice Mikayla for the first time when she was 8 months old, Samantha loved having her here and didn't want her to go home back to Brisbane. 

I really am happy with how this turned out, Stamped the butterflies, the spider, the dragonfly and the bee - All Inkadinkado stamps. All Prima leaves and flowers. Kaisercraft Rubons.
