Last one...

Yup that is correct I have done my last layout for January 2012 as today is the last day of January for another 12 months. This layout has been entered into 123 Challenge where the criteria was




So here it is... I used Making memory paints specialty Glaze - silver, sky & rose petal for my background with some marbles inside a box, love the ideas that come home from school and can be used on my own layouts. I used Silver ribbon and the word Joy in Silver. This photo is of our girls on Christmas eve 2011. I just love it since we had just been to church and took some lovely photos in front of the christmas tree.

I hope you find some time to scrap as I have set myself a challenge for the year to follow my favourite challenge blogs and play along.
Happy Scrapping

Three Layouts!!!!

January has almost finished and school has almost started hoo but I will find more time to do more layouts. On that note I completed three layouts this morning and here they are.

I am so happy with how this layout just worked and looks so special.
I used liquid pearls on the chipboard word and I love the effect! Give this a go but allow alot of time for it to dry...
This was such a funny memorable day of boogie boarding along the beach where there was a large pool of water...Awesome fun to watch.
I have just completed this page for Daring You to Scrap where the challenge was to use scrap paper to create a background. I used what I had left over ripped, wet and crumpled then inked and used for my background.
With the chipboard title I figured out years ago via an accident how to make my title like it is below, I used Luminarte paints about four different colours and before it fully dried I then used glossy accents (not the crackle one just the normal one) then put this under the aircon when it is really cold...It then really crackles and lifts the colours.
I hope you enjoyed what I have done and find some time to play.

The last weekend of January is upon us and our beautiful eldest girl is back to school on Tuesday - I really hate her being in school as we miss her so much. She loves it though and she learns so much, as long as she is happy so are we!

Anyway I have finally finished another challenge this one is for Scrap The Girls A Monochromatic layout which I did in Purple...Love that colour.

All purples I even used a fluro purple copic marker to change the thickers from white to purple that is so cool - saves so much money. The flourishes from Doodlebug - Stick with it Adhesive transfers,these are double sided adhesive shapes that you put whatever medium onto that will stick - like glitter, crushed velvet, flower soft etc. I used Martha Stewart fine glitter - I had it from one end of the house to the other I know I inhaled it and I really do think I ingested it too! There should be a warning for that

Getting in Early...

I meant to share this with you last week but time has gotten away on me again as it always does and now I have a little girl that has a very high temperature and we don't know why she is still eating and drinking. Trying our best to keep her cool - aircon on, wet washer, panadol & nurophen. Poor little thing...

But anyway I didn't get all my christmas cards done this christmas so have decided to get in early and atleast do one every week or two - so far I have created 3 and yes they are me simple but they are made.

I have stamped Fizzy Moon teddy holding a sign, Kenny K stamp of the sexy gal in a santa hat and Woodland Folk stamps of the fox, log & tree. The fox is holding a present stamp from Stephanie Barnard.
Like I said simple but me - I may add some ribbon and Merry Christmas to them nearer christmas itself but aleast they are done.

I am working on lots of different things at the moment so when I get pages complete I will share! Have a lovely week nomatter what your plans are.

First Layout for 2012!!!

Here is my layout for White With 1 January's challenge is White + Lime + Buttons...
I love this photo of our eldest beautiful girl when she was little - plus it suited the colours for the challenge...

I used some glimmermist and then to tone down the colour used a baby wipe to take some of the mist away and spread it around. I also used my glue gun to make what looks like a trellis behind the flowers. Also made some different flowers by cutting them into thirds and cutting a leaf up to use as the base for them.
These flowers are the two in the middle and the one at the top of all the other flowers.
My date for this page is on the heading which I thought was the best spot!

Hope you have a great day and find time to scrap.

A new area...

Enjoy Friday for the weekend is almost here - YEAH!!!

Just sharing my new area with you my hubby built these blue cupboards for me 5years ago now and I love them. This is a photo of setting them up in the loungeroom as I did have a designated room but we had our second daughter so she now has that room... They don't look like this now I am in the process of getting them full and overflowing then will take another photo!

See it is clean...

It's the New Year!

Well it always happens to me on the school holidays I am having SO much fun with my girls that my scrapbooking gets neglected and I feel that I have nothing to post on my blog... I do want to wish you all a Safe New Year and lots of time with your family.

I am at this moment contimplating quietly joining in at The Little Scrapbook Shop and giving this a go... a photo a day for 2012 HERE no overly sure as I don't take photo's every single day and I still have so many to print from 2011 that has to be scrapped.

I am also in the process of changing all my albums over to We R Memory Keepers Leather 12x12 ring binder albums which are much more sturdier, plus organising my eldest daughters school album for years kindy to year 2 to start with plus including all the bits and peices inside.
These albums are beautiful!!!!!!!

I know I will be very busy this year with what has been planned and what will be happening and I want to spend more time with my family as our children are growing so fast - I don't want to bite off more than I can chew.

As the old saying goes we will see how we go! On that note as it is midnight here I shall say goodnight and catch you as soon as I have played with some 12x12 paper and photos...
Chow for now
