Back again with a lot to share...

Hello Again!
I haven't had a chance to share the pages created with my Basic Grey Out of Print stylist pack. I loved this range and found it to be very versatile.

An old photo of myself...not the best pic but I wanted to record my thoughts and there is quite a bit of hidden journaling under the photo.

A rare layout of DH, again not the best pic of him but a great memory to record and look at that background...just awesome!!

And our sweet baby Ginger who we lost the week I completed this page :(

And my main scrapping subject my lovely DD Mikala. DS is at an age where he doesn't want his photo taken and my photo opportunities are few and far between. I am lucky Mikala loves the camera and will enjoy it while it lasts.

The ScrapBoutique site is back up and running and I have now posted my challenge. This is my space page...
I love these October Afternoon papers and embellies. The photos were printed from Google Earth.

And finally my page for the monthly challenge which has been set by Amanda this month. It was all about movement and I have tried to create that by the pic ( although I caught them at the end of the slide) and by using arrows and the background sheet of paper. The papers and stickers are all from the Echo Park Playground collection pack.

Thanks for getting this far and hope you are enjoying your weekend.

Some sneaks!!

Well it's the weekend again and it's started off rainy here...hopefully it clears up to a gorgeous day for tomorrow. I have had an exciting week! I started two new jobs :) Add that to my current job and I am now working every day of the week...the offers were so good that I couldn't say no! I am so excited to be learning new things and it is a welcome change from doing accounts. And I do need to feed my habit after all, lol. Best of all one of the roles is only during school terms so I will still get to spend time with the kidlets.
We are meant to be having our cc over at ScrapBoutique but unfortunately the site is having some difficulties. The challenges will be posted when it's all back up and running...so make sure to have a look as we will be going all space age and time travel.

Here is a sneak of my page...

And I have been playing with my stylist pack...I love this range! Beautiful, glittery papers...

...and some gorgeous new rubons.

I hope to be back soon to share some more pages.

Thanks for stopping by and the lovely comments you leave.

Dear Lizzy...

I very rarely purchase older papers but when I saw these AC Dear Lizzy ones at a super price at ScrapBoutique I thought why not! This page was for the August stylist challenge in which I chose an inspiration photo. Why not check it out as you can win a $10 voucher to use in the store...and with the CHA products starting to arrive a voucher would come in very handy :-)
I misted the clouds and then added texture paste to give them a fluffy look. 

With all the renovations we have made here I decided it was a great time to have a big clean up and have been sorting through all our storage areas. I came across my wedding dress and veil and DD decided she just had to try it on and take a few photos. I had to laugh when she asked if she could wear it on her wedding day as she is only twelve and is already as tall as me. I said you can if you want a dress that comes to your knees! She has since settled on wearing the veil only...how sweet is she! 
I loved fussy cutting these flowers and have just added some stickers and chipboard from the range along with thickers and OA alphas.

I recently filed all my pages into albums. I love these WRMK Linen ones and the Boutique is now stocking them at a great price. I just love looking at these on my shelf! Sad I know, lol.

Thanks for stopping by and any comments you may leave!

ScrapBoutique CC pages to share and Stylist challenge!!

The ScrapBoutique birthday celebrations are now over and these are my pages from the week long cc.
First up is Christine's challenge to create a page using an oversized number. I have scrapped a photo of my nephew Riley using October Afternoon Rocket Age papers, alphas and miscellany. I love this range of papers...a great boy collection but some of the papers could be used for girl pages too. I have added a large grunge board number which I inked and glimmer misted. Don't you just love the view in the photo from the top of Muttonbird Island looking back over the harbour. I live in a beautiful part of the world!

This page was for Amanda's challenge. I think I strayed from the criteria a bit, which was to be four pp, four colours, four of the same embellishments and four other embellies. I love these Prima papers and the flowers and fabric leaves add wonderful texture. I have wanted to have my hair cut short for a while and finally was brave enough. It's taking a while to get used to as the stylist cut it quite a bit shorter than I wanted :( 
The photos were taken using hipstamatic on my iPhone...so love that app!

This month I have set the Stylist challenge and I have chosen an inspiration photo. You can check it out here. We would love to see some new girls joining in the challenges over at the Boutique and don't forget that the winner of each challenge wins a voucher to use in the store.

Thanks for stopping by and for the lovely comments you leave :)
