Layouts completed last night!

It is Sunday morning here in Australia, was up late last night watching NCIS on my new computer and iMac - very nice piece of gear! Plus I also finished three layouts and started on another two. Considering the week we have had it is a wonder that I was able to complete anything. Everyone in this house was extremely sick at the start of the week and we are still not 100% better but at least we are moving and eating now.

Firstly a lovely turquoise layout of Princess number one this worked out better than what I had imagined - three wallet sized photos cropped to fit into the chipboard filmstrip. The filmstrip has been embossed using Opals, also stamped the grid onto the background and used some glimmermist to for the splotches.

This next layout I played around with last night wetting my paper and allowing to dry under the air conditioner, I then inked it with two ink pads and then ironed it so it was just a little flatter. Working on photos from my husband when he was younger.

This was the first layout I completed last night - not fully finished yet but pretty much done just have to get the Mr & Mrs details and record who was in the photos when I get the information from my in-laws as yes this is my husbands parents when they were married on April 1st (April Fools day) almost 40 years ago. Chipboard works that I inked with two inks then clear embossed. Rubons in black and stickers too. All photos were originals that I had to trim down to fit as they were going discoloured around the edges of the white frame.

Hope that you enjoyed what I created! I also hope that you find sometime for yourself today.
Chow for now.

Another School week has begun,

Well Monday is here and the second week of school has commenced I am sitting here listening to Hillsong Kids so the our littlest Princess is happy but really she is about to go to bed...As of last night I found out she has four teeth coming through at once - poor little thing.

So last night I completed my challenge for White With 1 and I really love this one using the colours White with Lemon and three photos - well my photo sizing worked out rather well I think...
I used glimmermist on the page with a Stamp from Kaisercraft that I embossed over in clear. I love these photos she was trying to crawl so we knew it wasn't long before she got going.

On that note our littlest Princess is 20months how the time passes so spend time with your loved ones as it goes in the blink of an eye.

Wonders will Never Cease...

It is Sunday morning and I am about to get my shoes on and go to where my hubby is currently trying to finish cladding a house. I will be putting in a full day just to help him get finished - and I hope we do! At least today is nice and cool, was working with him two weeks ago and was blacking out cause it was SO hot 40degress.

Anyway at Scrapbook Boutique I had all the intentions of joining in with this challenge of Purple, green & white, but I actually missed the deadline. I was going to make a page but it was the perfect excuse to make a card for my cousins wedding in April. I made it anyway and for a gal who doesn't make cards I was pretty impressed with this one and I like it.

I used Glimmermist to colour the Fizzy Moon - Wedding Bells teddies. White Pearl Liquid pearls for his top hat and finely painted it onto the roses in her hair and the ribbon holding onto the horseshoes. Green liquid pearls for the heart and horse shoe confettie. Horseshoes were even glimmermisted and the veil has glitter glued to it. The work Celebrate is from The Stamps of Life I love these stamps and this one saved me as I didn't know what to do!

I hope you like as much as I do it is really special to me. This card is about love...So I hope you find time to give the ones you love a kiss and cuddle.
