Sweet Girls

This layout is of our gorgeous girls.  A few months ago we went away with a group of friends. We were lucky enough to visit a property of over 300 acres. Almost 5 under garden
and the lady of the house does all the gardening herself. LUCKY for me I had my camera on me and took some stunning pics of us all.

This is a simple layout BUT I am happy with the way it turned out. Dusty flower made into a lovely layered flower and some of the dusty hinges. Painted with pickets fence and brushed with just a little rub n buff :)

My Canvas

SOOO at last I have had time to take pics of what I did on Saturday at my crop :)

I have told you before how much I love making canvas''s soooo I thought firstly I would share one with you. This one came about after I used a template and texture paste on plain bazil. I sprayed it with Heidi Swapp colour shine Tinsel and Amethyst and it was just tooo lovely for a background.

I layered the text really high on one end. I love the effect...let me know what you think

I have a few more layouts and another canvas (or 2) to share so be sure to pop back :)

Until then, take care.

Like the title says I have been  BUSY BUSY BUSY.  2 months ago I re joined the workforce after running our business for 11 years.  That was a big challenge!! THEN I got a nasty ear infection that lasted over a month and I am still having issues with it now.  All this has meant I haven't been very creative.
Sometimes its just plain HARD. I have 2 children LOTS of fur babies and a very supportive hubby but it still all gets a bit overwhelming at times.
All that makes creating very very HARD!!! BUTTT...I have been feeling like scrapping again. My love for creating canvas's is clearly still there,  I have made 4 recently.
I need to take lots of pics today and put them all on here so you can see what I have been making.
Until then I wanted to share a little something I just found.
I think sometimes I get overwhelmed in my scrapping because I compare my stuff to others, think I am not as good. Scrapping IS a personal thing. It is about recording my memories in an artistic way.
So take a look at this lovely saying and NEVER let anyone take away your sparkle. We all shine in our own way.

Another Mood Board

If you read my post from yesterday you would know I did a Mood Board Challenge from Sassy Scarppers over the weekend.  I also completed a Mood Board Challenge that is being run by

here is the mood board we had to work with
I remembered I had a lovely pic of our youngest taken at her recent birthday where she turned 13 and she had a lovely mint coloured cardigan on...so that was the pic I scrapped.

That purple paper is AMAAAZZING..its a resist paper that I sprayed with some mists to get the colours!!.. I made some fabric flowers out of purple satin, a bit of tuelle , a beautiful Dusty Attic floral scroll that I used Perfect Pearls on ( don't you just love the effect!!) and a few, well quite a few, sequins on the page :)
I love it

Too Long

Its been toooo long since I last posted.  my crochet has been keeping me busy, which I love, and work has kept me busy too .

I went to a 12hour crop at my LSS yesterday and got a little creative. I needed a bit of inspiration so I took up a Mood Board challenge that is being run over at Sassy Scrapper at the moment.

Check it out here http://sassyscrappers1.blogspot.com.au/2013/07/july-monthly-challengemood-board.html?spref=fb

I decided to do a pic of our eldest.

I love this pic of her. 

I cut some flowers using my TIM HOLTZ 3D flower die, from material. I also cut some leaves from BALSA wood and Tim Holts on the edge die from balsa wood too.  I am just loving the depth you can get using balsa wood.
I LOOVE the cluster of flowers.
Hope you like this one. I am pretty wrapped in it.  I have another to share from yesterday but its getting late so I shall share tomorrow .

NEW Sticky paper at Sawyers Place

WELL....I will say it again MY POOR BLOG!!!  Life has bee a little busy and just a little trying of late. I joined the workforce after many MANY  years as a full time Mum. Quite a shock to my system and I am still trying to work out my time management.  I have lots of orders for my crochet goods and all in all my poor scrapping has been left. To be total y honest I haven't really felt like scrapping and even thought of selling off all my scrapping stuff...BUTTTT ...I now feel like I want to scrap again and have sooo many ideas in my head, even if most of them are OTP projects.

That is what I want to share today and OTP project.  A few weeks ago I bought a little gift box from a shop I think it cost me $4.00 and yes it was lovely like it was BUT......the other day I got my new DT pack from SAWYERS PLACE and I just KNEW it was to transform this box.

So I started by giving the box a REALLY good coat of Gesso to hide the picture that was on the box

So now its just a matter of cutting the sticky paper to fit EASYYYYYY.....

I added so much to the lid and I still don't know if I am finished.


Laces on the side of the lid painted sides to the box and its finished.

I don't know that I will part with it....but if I do I think it will make a WONDERFUL gift box for someone special.

Till next time ...enjoy every moment and I hope you get some time to create.
