Soul Scrappers One Word Challenge

 Gidday! How is your day goin? Good I hope.. Well no complaints from me about the weather today, simply a stunning day.. cool but the sky is blue!!

I am just popping up my layout for the challenge over at Soul Scrappers on Facebook that is called One Word challenge and it is to use a letter and use a word starting with that letter as title for your layout..  and the letters this month are C, T or R.. and I chose the letter T for traveller and I have used a photo of my Daughter when she was in Tasmania travelling around last month..

a couple of closer views..

I did some stamping on the back ground using travel themed stamps.. fussy cut some flowers and a little dot of liquid pearls for the centre.

lots of layers using travel themed papers.. 


and yes that is snow behind her, she was so excited to see it on Mt Wellington..

Thanks so much for coming on by, I appreciate each visitor to my little blog! Take care.. until next time..

Soul Scrappers Sketch - July

 Hello there, I hope things are going well with you where ever you are.. It is freezin here!! BBRRR!! Middle of winter , and although I am sure other people get a colder winter than I, it sure is very chilly!!! The wood fire is going and that is very comforting!!

I have created a layout for this months Sketch for Soul Scrappers on Facebook and I have followed it closely.. I love a good sketch, it takes a lot of the thinking out of a layout.. just have to find a photo and papers!!! and the sketch looks like..

a couple of closer views of my layout.

I did some embossing on the bunting and I like the look of the texture.. I forget to use the embossing folders I have.. mind you I dont have many!! but this script one is a fav..

I have fussy cut flowers from papers, cut some flowers from a die and also used some lace..

Dwell on the beauty of life..

This is my daughter when she had a pregnancy photo shoot for her second child.. I am happy with how this turned out.. Thank you Soul Scrappers for the sketch inspiration to get me to create this layout..
