C.S.I. - Color,Stories, Inspiration #276

Hello there,
Thanks for coming by today.. I trust your week is off to a great start.. Cant believe we have one week of March left and then it will be April.. My days are busy, and I am sure you are probably keeping busy too!
I have challenged myself to get two challenges done each month, just to make myself make time for creating, otherwise I feel I would just be slack and not get any thing done.. so again I have joined in with C.S.I. - Color, Stories, Inspiration #276 which looks like..
I have used the colors and have also used from the evidence - dots, stripes, clouds, sun, ribbons/bows, string, buttons pinwheels and i have created a patchwork on my page too..

A closer view of the pinwheels which I made.

I made some flowers and put buttons in the centres of them also.

Hello Sunshine..
I love this drooly photo of my Grandie, those toothy pegs were giving her some trouble before they popped through!! Such old papers on this page too, but so glad to use them..

Thanks for your visit, and thanks for the comments you leave me too.. I hope you have a great week ahead... the forecast is for rain for us... I really hope so!!

Hello there,
my goodness I didn't realize how long it has  been since I last blogged, and yes since I last scrapped too.. my days are busy at the moment, with my daughter working two jobs, I feel like a taxi driver, who at time feels a bit overwhelmed by all the traveling I seem to be doing... but there is light at the end of this tunnel....  the hours are getting up for the learners permit, and I am looking forward to some one getting themselves to work some day with their own car and licence... and then... perhaps a little more time for myself... sigh...  sooo I just HAD to hide away and get some scrapping done.. and when I feel lacking in mojo the best thing is a sketch.. so I found the March sketch for ANNA'S CRAFT CUPBOARD - HERE and forgot the housework and did some creating..

The sketch..
So I thought there was a bit of mixed media on the back ground and for the circle element I used a heart instead...

my layout. some closer views..

I have used a lovely Charms Creations heart in this cluster..  I am also using up flowers I have had for years and years.. the big green one I have had for such a long time..  so glad to pop it on this page..

and that orange flower... way old!!!

Happy Baby..

And of course what could be better than using a photo of my Grandie on my page to get the creative juices going!! hehe!! This photo was taken after Christmas..  such a cutie..

Thanks Anna's Craft Cupboard for a great sketch that has saved my sanity for a while..  I enjoyed creating this layout..  and thanks for dropping by, and all those lovely comments you leave me to read make my day happier..  thank you!!

Until next time..

KRAFT+ - MARCH - Metallics and Jewells!

Hello March!! February went in the blink of an eye and here we are putting up the new challenge for a new month!! It is another fabulous one for KRAFT+ and it is...

 To use metallics and jewells...  or metal embellishments and bling!!! You can pop your creation over on the KRAFT+ FACEBOOK COMMUNITY PAGE HERE!!!

I found an old necklace when I was looking around for some old jewelry
to use and thought I would use that as well as metal flowers and the bling is in the center of some other flowers I have used on my page..

some closer views..

You can see the necklace and the metal embellishments in this picture..

And the little pops of bling in the flower centres!!

Believe in yourself!!

And I love this photo of my DD, she is so grown up now...

Thanks for dropping on by, I hope this is a great month for you..  February was a very hot month here, but it had some wonderful highlights for our family..  One of them being my Grand Daughter turned one year old! We got an ice cream cake and got the camera out hoping for some fun cake smash photos but she was so dainty and just put her finger in the ice cream and didn't make a mess at all!! hehe.. perhaps next year she will be all over it!!! 

Thanks for the lovely comments you leave me to read, I appreciate them all...
Have a wonderful day!!
