Wow - its Christmas already!!!

We had a big shipment from America arrive yesterday. The smile on Nat's face say's it all. 100kgs of new and top ups of other stock lines. The new EK boarder punches are just perfect and have been used in a project already. In the order are the 12x12 and 8.5x8.5 paper pads for Que Sera Sera and Madeline. We also got the albums to match. We received a top up of pads and Albums for Ancestry and Blue Awnings. Lots of new Daisy Bucket stamps. Some more Tim Holtz emblishments. In fact 5 big boxes of beautiful, emblishments, papers and punches.

Just be yourself

The second one is of Beth. I had done this one in a class using Making Memories papers. I did it again using Prima papers. The title is our chipboard letters again inked and stamped with an old french writing stamp. The Flower is from Prima as is the lace. The florish in the top left corner is a Heidi Swapp sticker. The title reads " in a world where you can be what ever you want...Just be yourself". I have printed it onto bazzill and cut it out into strips. The Photo is amazing - Beth took it herself in her room. She chose a setting on her camera for fluro lighting, then sat facing a window. Pure Magic.
thanks for looking

Some more Layouts

Hi another couple of layouts for you. These are ones I did for Addicted to Craft, when I was sending sample of my work for consideration for their design team. The first one is of Josh and Kate. I used Dream Street papers and our own chipboard letters. I inked the letters and stamped them with a little flourish stamp from Maya Rd. I just added some brads and ribbons - done.

It is my Turn

Hi Everyone I got my weeks mixed up. I am updating the Addicted to crafts blog this week. This means I can share with you layouts I have done for them. So here is one. This is one for those of you who love Heritage. I have used October Afternoon papers, the range is called Country Fair. I have used Tim Holtz distress ink (Vintage Photo) round the edges of all my papers. The scallop strip, corners and journalling block all come from a diecut sheet. I stamped the title, inked the edges and then stamped around the edge of the title with another stamp from MME. I cut the flowers from one of the print papers and layered them. To finish them of I used dimensional magic on the centers. Check out the Addict to Crafts Blog for more photos of this layout.
Thanks for stopping by.

Where did April Go, if you find it can you return it to Me!!!

That month just flew by and I had such great plans for posting every couple of days, or at lest twice a week. Too late now was the cry. Have to try better next time. I have the fun of hosting Addicted to crafts blog for the week starting Monday. I will be posting some of my layouts I have done for them. I thought I should show you some of my favorite layouts over this month. Starting today - one of my son and husband on the pirate ship ride at Water World. I hate rides, even the Ferris wheel at the show is too much for me. So this photo was a true test of love. Josh was determined for me to experience at lest one ride at the theme park. And as a good Mum I agreed if I could take a photo(spoken by a true scrapbooking addict). So I climb on and shut my eyes, so far so good. Then it started and after a couple of swings backward and forward I knew I was in big big trouble. Holding on with one hand and clutching my camera in the other I opened my eyes and took the photo, then shut them for the rest of the ride. At the top of the swing of the ride my bottom was leaving the seat!!! and I only had one hand to hang on with otherwise my camera would have been hitting the head of the person in front. NOT GOOD and NEVER AGAIN. After a long long time it stopped and I was able to get off. I'm told that the view from the top of the ship over the whole park is fanstic, I have to take their word for it.
