Good evening! I hope you are doing as well as can be!

Just getting in a couple of challenges before the month comes to an end... I know this is a shorter month, but it has gone wayyy too fast!

The sketch for FEELING SKETCHY is another fabulous one.. I used it like this..

and my card..

and the sketch for AFSC for the 15th February looks like this..

and after thinking about it for a while I created this layout..

I have used Kaiser papers Secret Admirer range..and I hope you are sitting down... I used a photo of moi.... last year was a milestone for me... so I thought I had better scrap about it..  I don't do many layouts just on me, so I have been brave and have done one....

Cherished moment - K I U Februay..

Greetings! I hope you are having a wonderful day.. It is Saturday night here, and I have managed to get a bit more scrapping done today!

The February Challenge for KRAFT IT UP is to use stickers in some way... When I first started scrapping I used to buy stickers, and I have quite a few of them.. so I really wanted to use some up in this challenge...

I have used  3-d stickers and also the stickers that you get when Kaiser has a paper range..

Cherished moment.. The photo is of my two older daughters at the airport when Hannah arrived home from the UK.. a very cherished moment to have her back in Australia..

I have used the Secret Admirer range from Kaiser.. All the flowers are stickers, as well as using quite a few stickers from the sticker sheet.. (the black bird cages, the scalloped borders the buttons..)

Thank you so very much for dropping in, and as always I do appreciate you taking the time to leave a comment!!

Baby Bethany - WW1 February

Greetings! Thanks for coming by!

The challenge for WHITE WITH ONE this month is WHITE, PINK AND HEARTS..

Now being the mum of 3 daughters I could not resist this challenge, and it was just the therapy I needed... I  printed off a photo of my eldest daughter (my second child) when she was 1 day old.. Just looking at the photo makes me sigh.. My son Nathan was meeting her for the first time and I love that he is holding my hand in the photo.. He was such a good big brother!!

Baby Bethany..

I have lots of pink... pink ribbon roses from Kaiser, heart edge punch from Martha Stewart, heart dies, flowers and doileys.. yes siree! I enjoyed creating this layout!

Thanks for coming by.. and thank you for all the wonderful comments..

and tomorrow sometime I will be getting my assistant (Nisha!!) to help me draw a name from the blog hop for SOUS  FROM HERE>>.. good luck to all who left a comment!!

My take on the challenge....

The Three Amigo's!!

I have used texture paste and a triangle mask which you can see around the layout.also used randon stamping and mist splats... and I loved the chevron on the sketch too...

for you all so we have a few wonderful sponsors for our hop!
Our very own Lisa Norris of  Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons
Regina Easter of The Cutting Cafe

Our only expectation is to be a follower of Stuck on U Sketches
