Goodbye Summer

I have not been very inspired of late and only managed to complete two challenges this month.

This one was for the Anna's Craft Cupboard sketch. I love joining in the challenge each month and I have used The girls paperie On Holiday papers for this page about our trip to Movie World late last year. We had a great day and all loved the Stunt Driver show the best...it was awesome!

This layout was for Scrap Boutique's monthly stylist challenge. It was their lovely new stylist Sonia's first challenge and I am glad I found the time to finish this page of Mikala using some old WRMK papers from my stash. It's not very often that I get out older papers, I always seem to reach for the new ones. I have added Prima leaves and a flower along with a few of the new Kaiser paper flowers which are very nice. I had some fun using my sisters butterfly punches (thanks sis) and a few of my stamps too...isn't that little bird house just the cutest??

I can't believe it is the last day of summer already! Not that I am all that worried it has come to an end...it hasn't been all that pleasant with either rain or unbearably hot days at home and the tragedies of flood, cyclones and bushfires will be felt by many for a long time. 

I recently bought myself an iPhone and have been taking lots of photos. I love the application Hipstamatic and thought I would share a couple of pics I took at one of my favourite spots to go in summer...the Coffs Harbour Jetty!

I just love the colours in these...especially the first one! I think I will need some add ons very soon...it is so much fun.

Thanks for stopping by and I really appreciate the lovely comments you leave.

Basic Grey Curio

Good Afternoon

I had a chance to do some creating earlier in the week and decided to have a play with the lovely Basic Grey Curio range along with this gorgeous brick wall stamp that came with my new Tim Holtz stamp set. The photo is of my best friend Kim when she married Chris at Chapel Hill winery in McLaren Vale, SA last March. I loved cutting out these papers and will be sure to use them again on another layout. I have added a Prima butterfly and letters, Pink Paislee corrugated bird and heart, Green Tara flowers with Kaiser pearls, lace, K&Company brads and crystal brads that I bought in a lovely little scrap shop I found in McLaren Vale...I thought that was a nice touch! I love these little kraft alpha stickers that came in a kit...I don't know who makes them but I just love everything kraft and black/brown at the moment. The photo is by Scout Photographics in Adelaide.

Hope you are managing to stay cool...the heat has been unbearable for the last few days!

Thanks for stopping by and happy creating xox
