Hello there!
I hope your day is going great!! I must say the weather here has been spectacular, however the weather people are saying a cool snap is coming this weekend! humm.. maybe time for a pot of soup!!

Well I have been keeping busy this week with the challenges over at WHITE WITH ONE CHALLENGES as they have had a cyber crop this week... and then I created a layout for this months challenge as well... so fasten your seatbelt as I share all 4 of them !!!!

to use your favourite color
a photo
at least 3 flowers
washi tape
4 patterned papers..
Well my fav color is navy blue so that is what I have used as my one color..

some closer views.

The washi tape is the butterfly tape and a view of the patterned papers..

I made some flowers and cut some die cuts..


I love this photo too of my first Mothers day as a Grammie!! So that is challenge one..


The next challenge is to use a grid design with multiple photos, to add journalling or stamping on your layout.. and to use blue and white.. and as an option to use your layout as a starting point for a card.. As I just used navy for my first  layout I went with a light blue..

some closer views.

I chose to use stamping on my layout.. I stamped around the border of my page as well as different swirls and flowers and the heart..

My Darling.

and my card inspired by my layout..

I used the same papers and the same stamps from my layout..


This was a step by step challenge.. This was a fun way to create a layout!

some closer views..

details of the strips and stamping and color on the back ground..

Baby Girl.

That was a great challenge! and a lovely result!

and I thought I may as well do the MONTHLY COLOR CHALLENGE !

and the color is Lime Chaser!!

Image may contain: possible text that says 'LIME CHASER' 

and some closer views..

Lots of die cuts! and i found some ribbon in my stash that was a great match!!

I made some flowers for my layout as I didnt really have any flowers for this color..


What a fresh pretty color!!

So if you have gotten this far - Thank you!! I had a great time creating these pages.. Thank you to
WHITE WITH ONE CHALLENGES on Facebook for these wonderful challenges!! It was good to escape into my scrap room and create!!

Hello there!
Yes it is me again!!  I could get used to this staying at home gig, and getting more creative time!!

I was looking around for a challenge to get my motivation going and I came across a Texture Paste Challenge over at PAPERCRAFT SECRETS on facebook and there was even a sketch to follow so I had a go at this one..

This is the sketch I chose..

No photo description available. How cool is that??

I used black cardstock as my base as it really lets the texture paste have more definition...
and this is my base before I started embellishing..

Lots of stencilling...

and some closer views..

I added some die cuts, fussy cut flowers and paper strips.


And I thought these photos went well with the black and white colors on my page too..

Thanks Paper Craft Secrets for a great challenge.. this was fun to create..

Thanks too for dropping by, and I do appreciate each comment you leave for me too..

Stay well and take care..

until next time..

SCRAP THE GIRLS - April challenge..

Hello there,
How has your week been? They seem to go by, even with staying at home.. There is lots to do at home, it is just the energy to do it is my problem!!!! hehe!
I am just popping up a layout I created for this months SCRAP THE GIRLS Challenge .

  No I am not the adventurer, but my DD has been! Last year she flew to Italy for her friends wedding... and she took her Daughter with her and I just thought I would use one of her photos for my layout..  She took some amazing photos but this one was the one I went with..

some closer views..

I found all sorts of travel themed embellishments to pop on my layout..

and my layout..

What an amazing photo, with all the buildings in the back ground.. my thoughts go out to Italy and its people in this very sad and difficult time..  but back then, everything was ok..

Thanks SCRAP THE GIRLS  for a fabulous challenge this month.

Thank you for dropping by, and thanks for the lovely comments you leave me to read too..
Stay safe, keep well..

until next time..

Hello there!
Here i am again! This staying home has allowed me more time for creating and when I was looking around for something to do I came across a Blind Scrap challenge run by Annette at AmG studio on Facebook and so I printed out the instructions and away I went.. You can pop over and see the challenge on the link above...  I think I followed it ok...

anyway.. here are some closer views.

I did a bit of stamping on the back ground and this is a corner banner that I decorated..

I have used the new Kaisercraft papers and did some fussy cutting and popped on some glitter glue as well as cutting some die cut leaves and flowers.


I like the end result.. the banner pieces were just scraps and I layered the fussy cut butterflies with foam tape for some dimension..

Thanks Annette for a great challenge.. I hope I have followed your instructions correctly!!

Thanks too for dropping by, and thanks for the lovely comments you leave me to read.. I appreciate each one..

take care.. stay well...
until next time..

Hello there,
A Blessed Easter to you and yours.. A very quiet one here.. Watched Church online and then I am not sure what else I have done.. perhaps spent way too much time gazing at Facebook! So I thought I would share a layout for the April Challenge over at WHATS IN THE BICKIE TIN.

And it is..
To use the color Yellow,
Add some Misting
and do some embossing..

I found a lovely photo and I thought I would use some chipboard from Celebr8 that I got last year at a Craft Show I went to.. 

some closer views...

I embossed this flower chipboard in a Color Blast embossing powder "Sunshine". I also used Mist with a stencil as well as flicking splats onto my page..

And I left this chipboard raw..

Just be yourself..

Yellow, Embossing and Misting..  Thanks to Whats in the Bickie Tin for another fun challenge..

Thanks for coming by, and thanks for the lovely comments you leave me to read.. I love each one..

Enjoy the rest of this Easter Weekend.. and stay well and safe..

until next time..

APRIL KRAFT+ Challenge..

Hello there!
How are you going? or staying perhaps!!!hehe! Surprisingly I keep busy during the day... but dont ask me what I do!! hehe..
The first of April is here..  I pray it is a better month than March.. and I do pray this virus is stopped and there are no more infections..

The challenge over at KRAFT+ FACEBOOK COMMUNITY is a fabulous one again this month.. and it is..

Inspired by fashion.. or this graphic.. and remember it has to be on a Kraft base..

I was inspired by the colors, by beauty and  also by Audrey Hepburn.. one of the worlds most beautiful women in my opinion.. so I found a photo of my stunningly beautiful girls and created my layout..

some closer views..

I have used some really old prima flowers, a chipboard mannequin and was inspired to use the colors pink and black on my page..

Just some of the layers... a flair tucked under the flowers..

My gorgeous girls!!

You can check out the design teams inspiration over on the KRAFT+ BLOG here and pop your layout up over on the KRAFT+ FACEBOOK Community Here!!!!! 

Thanks for coming by today.. I do hope you are keeping well and finding lots to fill your day as we all do what we can in staying home to help with stopping this awful virus.. thanks for the lovely comments you leave me to read.. I appreciate each one..
