In the limelight...

I'm very excited to be featured as Scrapper in the Limelight this month at Scrapbook Hub!!!
This was one of the layouts I created for the site and if you happen to have a thing for clouds like I do - I have included instructions and templates for making these floating cloud tags.
And speaking of clouds, I made these for the Blue Colour Swap at White With 1 this month :)



You've seen the sneaks and chances are you have been over to Scraptapestry by now, so I thought it was about time I shared a few more of the layouts I created with the gorgeous Limited Edition Headlines Collection.As you can see the kit is jammed packed with loads of beautiful detailed pieces that were a pure joy to work with and really suit a variety of scrapping styles! Also letting you know that the new Scraptapestry kit arrived at my door earlier this week - and let me just say Naomi has done it again!!

Thanks for stopping by

Scanner Art...

It's been a while since I've taken part in the mixed media art challenges at Gary Reef's Art from the Heart because my scrapping has been keeping me busy, but as soon as I saw the Scanner Art challenge I just knew I had to give it a go! It turned out to be a really good exercise in lighting and composition and after plenty of trial and error I settled on these framed collections of bits and pieces ...There are loads of really cool results on the site which you can check out here.


This month's inspiration at One Little Aussie Word is 'Delightful' and I ended up going with some of the new Kaiser papers to create this summer delight was a bit hard to get a good photo of this and it really looks a lot better in real life than it does here, but you get the idea :)

Colours and words...

I'm a little late in putting this up, but I've completed another layout for the Colours and Words challenge at Aussie Scrap Source inspired by this combinationWhen I was putting my pieces together I realised I didn't have any lilac paper, so I thought it was a good time to put one of these gorgeous yet inexpensive flocked gift bags to use that I purchased from Target a while ago with the pure intention of cutting up to use on my pages :)

and this is what I came up with...
You can check out what the everyone has created with this combination here and don't forget to vote for your favourite.

The wait is over...

Just in case you haven't heard the news... Scraptapestry is open for business :)
Naomi has already started taking orders for the gorgeous first collection, so be sure to get in quick to avoid missing out.

Sneak peeks...

I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend and it's great to see so many of you visiting Naomi's blog for the chance to win the very cool prizes in the lead up to the Scraptapestry launch :) and with the launch date getting closer I wanted to share a few sneak peeks of what else I've been creating with the gorgeous Limited Edition Collection to give you a better idea of some of the goodies you can expect to find.
There are still plenty more prizes up for grabs, so don't forget to leave Naomi your comments :)

My new toy...

Well it has been a long overdue purchase, but I finally upgraded my camera to this...Isn't it lovely :) I decided to stick to the Canon Ixus range - although this one has quite a few more pixels than my old model (which only had 5) the new one has 12.1mp, a wide angle lens and some very cool features like face recognition, a blink detector which the kids had a lot of fun testing and if you tilt it to the left or right you can scroll through your images without having to press any buttons - gotta love that!

Scraptapestry countdown continues...

The countdown continues for the Scraptapestry launch and with only 13 days to go I am very excited to finally start showing some of the layouts I have been creating using the gorgeous Limited Edition Collection. The kit is jammed packed with a beautiful assortment of goodies and I really fell in love with the colours and gorgeous details Naomi has put into this kit and cannot wait to show you more - and don't forget to leave a comment on Naomi's blog to be in the running to win in the daily giveaways.

catching up from July...

I know we are already in August, but I have been really busy and still have some catching up to do from July ;)

Last weekend our gorgeous boy turned 7, and celebrated with a yummy mud cake with family and of course getting very spoilt with loads of presents.
it was really nice to get such a great reaction to my little flower posts from my previous post - thank u ;) and these are the yellow goodies I got back in return for the White With 1 colour swap. Now I'm racking my brain for something blue to create for the next swap... sign ups ares till open if you'd like to take part :)I've also got a layout to share I did a couple of weeks ago for the 'I remember' dare at Aussie Dares, although Rebecca has been away on holidays so you might not find it on the site yet, but there are plenty of wonderful ideas there to get you inspired.
Oh and don't forget to visit Naomi's blog for 15 days of great giveaways!!!! I will be back soon with a few sneak peeks of what I've been doing with one of Naomi's gorgeous Scraptapestry kits.

Hope you are all well, and ready for another week *sigh*
