 Hello there,
Yes I am back with another layout I have created for this months challenge over at the KAISERCRAFT BLOG for June and it is....

KAISER BINGO! We are to choose a row and use those things on that row up or down or through the middle.. well I chose the end row down...  Inking, white background, gesso and favourite quote..  and I had a photo of my Darling Grand Daughter I just had to use for my page...

soooo some closer views..

For the inking part I used a dauber and a Kaisercraft Ink Pad and a pretty stencil and created some cute little flowers around my page..

For the gesso part I painted this chipboard doiley and a flourish from Kaisercraft with white gesso.

And I used this for my quote from an older Kaisercraft baby range..

and my layout..

Sugar and Spice..

I have also used some mini roses as well as some really old Kaisercraft flowers, Kaisercraft rhinestones and the papers are from an older paper range.

Thanks so much for popping on by, I hope your day is going really well.. thanks for the lovely comments too..

ANNAS CRAFT CUPBOARD Community Challenge June..

Hello there,
How has your week been? Good I hope..
yes I am back to share a layout I have created for this months Community Challenge over at Annas Craft Cupboard  on FACEBOOK  and it is to use a favorite technique for your layout..  I had a little think about it and one of my favorite things I like to use are my scrapping tools, my dies, my punches and my decorative edge scissors, so that is what I used for my layout...  I just had to use a photo of my Grand Daughter when she was just 2 weeks old, so I found some cute papers and flowers and away I went..

some closer views..

You can see the three punches I have used in this photo..

and the three dies - the vine, the heart and the leaves.

And this embellishment was perfect for my title..

Oh I enjoyed sitting and creating this layout because of that sweet little face in the photo!!

Thanks so much for dropping by, I know we are all so busy...  Thanks so much for those who leave the lovely comments, I do appreciate each one!!

KRAFT+ JUNE CHALLENGE - Be Inspired by DR. Seuss.

Hello there,
Welcome to June...Oh yessss the months are flying by!

The new challenges are going up and this months challenge for KRAFT+ is a most wonderful one and the Design Team have sooo much inspiration, make sure you check out their creations on the KRAFT + BLOG HERE!!!  
and it is...
to be inspired by Dr. Seuss...  (who incidentally wasn't a Doctor after all!!) What inspires you about Dr Seuss..?? I know we have lots of his fun books that my kids loved when they were little.. such silly stories but great repetition for the early readers..  I had to google Dr Seuss and I was amazed by the number of quotes he has his name to.
You can check out some of his quotes HERE!!!

. and so I went with a special quote using a photo of a moment in time of my DD and our old horse Bess, who is no longer with us... so that makes the photos of Bess all the more precious..

some closer views..

Such a heart tugging quote.

Lots of layered fussy cut images from the papers I used.


Ah that photo tugs at my heart...

And just in case you may not know, Kraft + has changed a little from this month... It is more about community and inspiration and participation...  and a great group over on facebook HERE!!!!  Already there are games happening and I hope you are encouraged to join in and share with us.

Thanks for dropping in, I know the days are crazy busy and the weeks fly by... well they do for me!! It is a busy year with my Dd in year 12 and having a casual job some days I feel like all I do is drive her around... BUT it will all change in November when she finishes school and it will be a new season for me...  so I try and enjoy each day..  there is always something to be thankful for!! Thanks for the lovely comments that some special people leave me..  I appreciate each one!! Have a fabulous day!
