WHATS IN THE BICKIE TIN? - Nov challenge.

Hello there! Here i am back again to share a layout I created for a new challenge called
WHATS IN THE BICKIE TIN and you can find it on their BLOG HERE and also on their
FACEBOOK HERE  . The November challenge is _
Include the color red..
Add a die cut
and have a torn edge or two..

As the weather here has been extremely hot I thought I would sit and do some scrapping and this is what I came up with..

some closer views..


There is red, and torn edges....


And I cut a flourish with a die..

The most wonderful time of the year..


This is from last Christmas so I thought I had better scrap it before the next one comes around!!!
Thanks Whats in the Bickie Tin for a great challenge.
Thanks for coming by, and thanks for the lovely comments you leave me too..
Take care if you are any where near the fires..  I do pray rain is coming very soon..

until next time..

PAPERCRAFT SECRETS - Nov Challenge - Black and White.

Hello there,
How are you today?  I hope you are keeping well and are safe.. at the moment it feels like there is a new fire emergency somewhere in Australia, it is sooo very dry and the winds are making things so dangerous for fires..  I will be so glad to see rain falling on our land..

I did get into my scrap room and I created a layout for the challenge over at PAPERCRAFT SECRETS ON FACEBOOK which was to create something in black and white..
I thought I would use a black background for my layout..
The page came together nicely, I used a stamp from Kaisercraft and fussy cut the flowers. I used  lovely chipboard from Denise Boddey Designs that I got at the recent craft day in Toowoomba..

and some closer views..



I added some black liquid pearl dots to the centres of the flowers.


I also put some kaisercraft rhinestones in the centres of the flowers on the chipboard.

Love your smile..


The doileys on the back ground are Kaisercraft stickers that I have had for ages.. A few of the flowers were lifted up with cardboard.

Thanks Papercraft Secrets for a great challenge..

Thanks so much for your visit and thanks for the lovely comments you leave me to read too..

Take care..
Until next time..

MORE THAN WORDS : October - Costume and Black Background.

Hello there,
So lovely you have come by.. I hope your day has been a good one..  It has been a hot day here for me.. We did have some beautiful rain last weekend, so perhaps we will get some more soon!!

I was inspired by this months challenge over at MORE THAN WORDS to create using this criteria..

 Well I do not do spooky, but I found a photo of my DD and my GD who had dressed up for their playgroup and I just had to scrap this moment!!

I havent done a messy back ground in sooo long so I got some paper strips and some old paper die cuts and other stuff that was sitting on my desk and stuck them on my back ground.. all sorts of things I used!! there was no reason, other then to add some texture.. then I sprayed with yellow mist, and I added some stencilling.. and I even took a photo before I covered it up with my photo!!



Then I got my photo and put layers under that and I cut lots of stars in black and gold..




and my super heroes!!



I had lots of fun creating this page.. I had no idea how it would end up.. and I am happy with the end result!!

Thanks MORE THAN WORDS for a fabulous challenge this month..

Thanks for visiting, and thanks for the lovely comments you leave me too.. I appreciate each one..

Take care..

until next time..

Hello there,
How is your day going? Well I hope.. At the moment it feels like Summer is knocking on the door and not giving us some Spring.. so good weather to stay indoors and create..

My first share is the challenge for the 123 CHALLENGE BLOG which is another fabulous one..

 to use the three colors, (you can use other colors but these 3 need to be seen mostly) use the words or be inspired by them, and use the sketch..
When I printed off the challenge my teal came out a little differently (oops!!) but thats ok..

some closer views..

I loved the banner on the sketch..

I have used some rub-on alphas for my words.. and this Kaisercraft range suited the colors.

Have Strength.


My daughter inspires me with her strength, so I had to use a photo of her.. You can add your layout over on the 123 CHALLENGE BLOG FACEBOOK PAGE  .

I would also like to share a layout I have created for the Sketch Challenge for Kaisercraft which looks like..


 I have rotated the sketch once anti-clockwise to suit the photo I have used.. I have used the Rosabella paper range, a Kaisercraft stencil, and the Kaisercraft vine die for some leaves..

some closer views..



Some fussy cutting of flowers, and I added a little button to the string on the tags..


Some liquid pearl drops in black for the center of the flowers, with some glitter glue to add some sparkle!!

Beautiful..

123 CHALLENGE BLOG - September reveal.

Hello there,
How has your day been?  I hope it has been a good one for you..
I am very late in getting this months challenge up for the 123 CHALLENGE BLOG and it is another fabulous challenge.. and it is..

 We are to use the 3 colors as the main colors, the sketch and the 2 words or say how the 2 words have inspired your layout..  There has been a bit of a problem with the linky thingy so now if you can just pop your layout over on the 123 CHALLENGE BLOG FACEBOOK PAGE here

and my layout...  I was inspired by the words awesome advice and it is to get lots of Vitamin Sea!!

some closer views..


I have used the beautiful Mintay papers for my layout...


And there is my awesome advice!! You can never get too much vitamin sea!


That is pretty good advice.. and just looking at the photos makes my heart sad.. you see on Friday we had to say good bye to our little Cindy, the little white doggie.. She had a cancer grow on her tummy and we got that taken off earlier this year, but another one grew back after that.. We wanted Cindy to get to her 15th Birthday which was a week ago, and then we made the heart wrenching decision... But she had a great life, and even had a beach holiday with us, so there are so many happy memories that I am going to have to get me through..and I guess that is why I scrapbook...

Thanks for coming on by today, and thanks for the lovely comments..
until next time...

I have managed to get a layout done the last few days for ANNA"S CRAFT CUPBOARD for August  which is a really pretty mood board that looks like..


Well I saw pretty pink and happiness and found a photo of my DD and I thought the Magenta Collection from Kaisercraft was perfect for my layout..

I used a die from Kaisercraft and cut out three die cuts and placed them around my page.. I used the stamp from the collection and stamped several flowers and fussy cut them out and layered them around my page also..  some mesh and plasterers tape for some added texture..


This quote was perfect !! I put a few drops of Kindy Glitz in the centre of the flowers for some dimension and sparkle!!

Happiness looks good on you!!


It seemed to take me a while to get going but once I started this page came together quickly.. I am trying to stop overthinking things.. and just stick it down!!! hehe!! I love this photo of my DD!!
