Photo Swap - Chat with Charm

Recently I had a bit of fun on "Chat With Charm" and we did a photo swap. I received a photo from a lovely lady in Qld and this is the layout I produced from her photo. I certainly hope she likes it.

I used a piece of cardboard from a perfume box to get the stencil look I sprayed with glimmermist and added some purple pumpkin tickets to tie in with the racing theme and a race hat and also some spring flowers and a little birdie. Most of the flowers are Kaiser craft apart from the gorgeous big white flower which  I bought from Charms Creations. I also added some pearls and a little stitching.

Cant wait to see what she produced with the photo I sent her..... :)

Ants - November Top 50 Scrapbooking challenge

Well this month Ant challenged us with doing a LO that included tearing technique and paint !!

I had fun with this one and decided to do a LO of my daughter Mia and her gorgeous little cousin Dane. As he came to visit us for a week in November after travelling from Brisbane. He was such a cute little fella and was sooo placid and always happy. Didn't mind his older cousins giving him lots of hugs and squeezes ...

I started with a lovely lemon cardstock and added a few splashes of hot pink kaisercraft paint. Then came some gorgeous creative memories papers, the tearing began I just ripped it up and stuck it on . As easy as I added some of my most favourite embellys to the page such as...
Charms creations gorgeous lovely flower, Agas Scrap this handmade bird and felt caption also some purple pumpkin tickets and string. Love how it turned out bright and vibrant.

Scrapbook Top 50 - November "Time is white" challenge

The "Time is White" challenge for November was:

- create a layout using the word "TIME" as either part of your title / subtitle, or prominently in your journalling
- include a clock / watch somewhere on your LO
- use a white cardstock base

I used some blue spritz onto white cardstock with a doiley as a stencil and added some gorgeous embellishments ...
Such as Burdys Handmade embellys lovely flowers, Charms Creations Blue page runner, and Lovelybug bits n bobs cute little button. I also added some kaisercraft rubons and a Kaszazz clock stamp.

I loved how it turned out such a beautiful moment captured of two cousins spending time together when little Dane flew over from Brisbane on his first BIG trip to visit us :)
