Good afternoon all!

A couple of layouts to share on this fine Thursday.

First is a layout done for the Bird is the Word 'peace' challenge:

Used: Basic Grey 'porcelain' papers, Prima flowers, Green Tara leaves, Kaisercraft rubons & bingo card,  Twiddlybitz chip gate, Tim holtz lock, Prima mask, paint, twine, doily.

Pulled out from my stash some old BG papers which i love even though they are waaay old! And look, they even have chevrons which are back in fashion!

I was encouraged by my masking attempts on a previous layout, and from some lovely comments from a couple of fave scrappers <3. The pink wasn't quite the right colour, and it didn't end up being too successful, so i covered it with a flower cluster. But it's all trial and error eh?? I do enjoy playing with paints/mists/masks, so i'll keep having a go!

The pic is baby Sophia, i still have plenty of unscrapped baby pics of her. I get in trouble from Adrian that i do too many girly layouts, but i cant help it, it suits my style! I'm trying to do more of Hudson...

Next layout is for Creative Scrappers sketch:

Used Kaisercraft 'nan's kitchen' paper & diecuts, Prima & misc flowers, Kaisercraft rubons & alphas, paint, leaves, twine.

A fairly basic layout, i found the CS sketch interesting so i had a go. I just love the cherries on the paper.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hoping that everyone is enjoying their Saturday!
Yesterday while Hudson was napping and Sophia at Kinder, i was able to get some scrap time. These small breaks are all i get, so i dont spend hours and hours on my layouts. i get more satisfaction in doing as much as i can in a small amount of time.

Anyways, here is a layout i have done for Bird is the Word. The challenge word is 'Spirit'.

Used Basic Grey Lauderdale paper & alphas, Prima flowers, Green tara leaves, Kaisercraft rubons, diary page, vintage music sheet, shipping tag, twine, lace stickers, paint.

The title is from a song by Eric Benet, 'Spiritual Thang'. It's a favourite of ours, i thought it was perfect to use it as a title for this challenge.

Even though the line is a few seasons old, i love the wild colours of 'Lauderdale'. I mixed some white and silver paint together and sprayed it onto the page in 2 blobs.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend everyone, thanks for stopping by.

Hope everyone is enjoying the last day of August. My oh my thie days are flying by! It's a lovely sunny day here in Geelong, Spring is well on its way.

I'm a bit late with this upload, i did this layout earlier last week and have been slack! Leaving it til the last minute.
It's for Kaisercraft's Saturday Sketch #3:

Used Kaisercraft's 'December 25th' Collection, Prima & Kaisercraft flowers, Kaisercraft bling star, Prima mask, paint, twine.

I'm always browsing at other blogs, admiring the masking and painting etc, but when i attempt it myself, i can never get it quite right! Anyways, there is meant to be a script mask on this layout, i dont know if you can tell or not!
I also rolled up the music sheet papers into little scrolls, i've seen this on other blog and love it! And i've cut up a holly border sticker and added it behind the flower cluster to give it a bit more depth.

Thanks for stopping by!

Good morning! The beginning of another week, wow this year really is flying by.

Today i'm sharing a 'just because' layout i did back in July when i had no internet for a couple of weeks. I'm entering it into 'This One's A Winner' for this month.

Used Kaisercraft 'Little Toot' collection, Prima & misc flowers, Green Tara velvet leaves, Kaisercraft bingo card and bird stamp, I cant remember who the title was from (!), twine, buttons & staples.

This pic was taken at Melbourne Zoo last year. We go there every year for Sophia's birthday, which is quickly approaching again! Can't wait to go again this year, with Hudson being a bit older.

Did a couple of layouts over the weekend, so i'll be back later to post.

Thanks for stopping by!

Afternoon all.

I pulled out some Authentique papers that i bought ages ago for this week's sketch over at Creative Scrappers. I fell in love with them when i bought them, but didn't quite know how to use them. I must say, i'm pleased with how this layout came together!

Used Authentique 'Gathering' papers, Green Tara flower & leaves, Prima flowers, Kaiser alphas,  Twiddlybitz chip butterfly, shipping tag, twine, paint, doily.

Love the new Green tara flowers, so pretty and so affordable!

Thanks for stopping by.

Happy Weekend to you all!

Last night Adrian was off watching the football with his mates, so once the kids were in bed i had some scrapping time to myself, aahhhh.

Here is my entry for Kaisercraft's Saturday Sketch #1:

Used: Kaisercraft's 'Devonshire' collection, Kaisercraft & Prima roses, Kaisercraft rubons & pearls, Green Tara leaves, twine, paperclip.

Hehe, after i complained about fussy cutting yesterday, i had another crack at it for this layout! Not great, but not too bad either...
I visited the Kaisercraft Outlet yesterday and pick up this collection for half price. Even though it's a few seasons old, i still love the colours and patterns in the papers. Considering the diecuts and letters were cheap too, i stocked up!

Thanks for stopping by!
