December DT Kit!!!!

Here are my LO's I created with my December DT kit from Scrapsidaisy.
You can purchase this kit on Scrapsidaisy's online store.
It's a bargain!!!
I was able to create 2 LO's & 2 Cards from this kit.

I love this pic of my youngest DD & my friends youngest DS sitting on the beach watching the waves!!!

This next pic is of my friends eldest DS, think he might just have the girls after him when he gets older lol

To make these LO's I used Rusty Pickle's Bottle Rockets & Rockin America range & Cardstock.
A bit of WOW chip, Tim Holtz stamps, Cuttlebug Alpha's, my circle punches & some Kaiser & MM's paints.

After making these LO's, I still had plenty stash left so I punched out 2 cards as well.

Enjoy your week my fellow scrappers !!!

I know I'm a bit late for Halloween, but here are some of the pic's I took of my 2 younger DD.
They had a Halloween dress-up day at Daycare.
I thought they looked so cute!!!


Well it seems like forever since I have scrapped!!!!
I'm so hoping I haven't lost my mojo!!! Since I have been so busy with moving & tafe, I can't seem to get my head back into scrapping!!!

But here are some cards I made for a lady at work about a month ago.

I used BasicGrey Origins card kit to make this one.
Add a few little extras of my own.

This card I scrap-lifted off Tara Orr
I used Pinkpaislee Queen Bee Collection.

First Tooth!!

This is a little Lo I played around with on Friday Night Crop at Scrapsidaisy!!
Had a great night with the girls.
I used "WOW" chipboard for the title & all the other chipboard I can't remember where they came from as I have had them in my stash for sometime now!!
The pp I used is from BasicGrey Hang 10 range.

This is a close up of a piece of chip that the very talented Linelle made for me with her Tim Holtz embossing folder, which she worked her magic on!!!
Doesn't it look great??

This is another LO I made on Tuesday night.
The very creative Jules taught this class down at Scrapsidaisy.
I was very happy on the way it turned out!!
Thanks Jules!!

Family Photo!!

It has been over 2yrs since we have had a photo taken of all of us, a family photo.

This photo is not a great photo, but this is all of us!!

Happy Birthday!!

Happy Birthday to!!!!

Last night I was scrapping with one of friends & this is what I created!!
I've had these papers for some time & had stashed them away. I had the perfect pic to go with them but it was trying to find it lol. Anyway found it the other day as I was packing up the house.
So here it is.......

The papers I used are Rusty Pickle, Princess Bride range.I have also used Jules Gems, had a little play with some Stickles, Chip alpha's, paper doily which I inked & my butterfly punch.

U can see in the above pic where I have made my own swirls with the Stickles on transparency & then cut around them.

I've been getting a few requests lately from some girls at work for cards!!
Wedding & birthdays cards.
I made this card for a young girl at work who wanted a 18th birthday card for a friend.
Her request was for it to have 18 on & the colour purple!!!
Let me just say I don't normally scrap with the colour purple. I think I have only done 1 LO using this colour, but it does seem to be popular lately, as this is my 2nd request for a card with the colour purple!!!
Anyhooo....... I have used BasicGrey Wisteria pp, some purple bling & one of those ever so yummy Prima butterflies. Oh & some KindyGlitz.

& here is a close up of the yummy butterfly

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!!!

These are RARE moments!!

Well here you go....i finally took a pic of my LO!!
I used the same paper range as my card.
Also used Prima flower & Prima pearls, Kaiser skeleton leaves & Kaiser mimi alpha stickers.The big chip alphas are BasicGrey.
The reason why I chose the title "Theses are rare moments" is because it is very rare I can get a photo of my 2 eldest DD together, with out them trying 2 destroy each other

Hope you like????
