Birthday Cards!

Last post for the month ... can't believe September is almost over .... the year is flying by!!
Before I get to scrapping stuff though, I just wanted to say Happy Birthday to my Mum!! love you heaps Mum, have a lovely day! xxx
Here is the card I made for her ...

And whilst on the subject of birthdays here is another card I made for my neighbours birthday on the weekend ... 

I have used more Fancy Pants Like Father Like Son Papers, just lovin these papers, (new in @ my2angels) the blues are gorgeous and are perfect for male/boy cards, even having 2 boys I still struggle sometimes making masculine cards! I have used the Be Strong and Little Tike papers which I have layered onto a blue cardstock card and a white cardstock mat. I used a the Tim Holtz Hanging Sign die, which was cut out of chipboard and inked with blue and brown inks until I was happy with the effect. I then covered it with a coat of Tim Holtz Rock Candy (awesome stuff!). 
When that was dry I added some metallic die cut numbers and 2 altered brads (I used the inks and Rock Candy on them too!) and stuck it on the card on top of a piece of frayed muslin. 

Finished it off with a die cut ‘Congrats’ which I drew around with a White Gel Pen.
Ok thats it for me today .... have a great week!!

Carnival Day!

Carrying on with the boys at play theme this month at my2angels, I captured my little one at his school carnival last week! I love this school event and of course I LOVE taking photos!!! These are from the team 'leader ball' event, note the red hair especially for the day!! The coloured hair sprays were really out in force as usual!!!
It was a gorgeous day, windy, but sunny and warm with blue skies! and seeing as I have a huge love of clouds, I took a picture of them and added it to my layout too!
Using more of the Fancy Pants Like Father Like Son papers mixed with a leftover piece of October Afternoon Fly a Kite Fireflies and some red and green cardstocks I came up with this. 
After cutting out the photos I wanted to use, I set about making a ‘jigsaw’ with my papers and laid them on the FP Stud Muffin paper. When I was happy with the look, I paper pierced some holes and used some rub on stitching. 
The title is Thickers Daiquiri and Jenni  Bowlin Tiny Circle Alphas in Black & Red.
I’ve then embellished with a very cute My2Angels House Charm, a Red Mulberry Flower and Plaid Brad
The gorgeous little bee and heart button are from the talented Steph at MLBOW and the linen pleat is Pink Paislee.
Thanks for looking ...... be back soon with more to share! for more inspiration, don't forget to check out the other DT girls work on the blog

Have a great weekend ....

Boy .... Step by Step!

It's boy month over at my2angels and Tracy asked me if I would do a step by step for the blog so I had a go .... not an easy task for me as I don't normally plan any of my layouts .... I have an idea and then just run with it!!
The photo is of my oldest son taken a couple of weeks ago at a local park for a footy season wind up!
I've used some new Fancy Pants papers just in at my2angels! and lots of yummy Scrapware!
I've gone for a muted colour scheme and coloured my chipboard using watercolour pencils and an Aqua Brush and resisted the urge to use gloss or crackle medium but for anyone checking out the step by step this could be done if you prefer.
Apart from colouring the chipboard this layout was really quite easy and quick to do! The chipboard scallop is Dusty Attic and the gorgeous spotty button is from Samantha at Purple Pumpkin!
How cute is that little Scrapware Chunky Chick? and as much as I love chipboard cogs (if you want proof on that one ... check out my blog header LOL!!) these Scrapware ones double up as awesome little suns don't you think?!?!?!
Love the Antique Alphas too .... waiting for Tracy to get in some more of the mini ones now that I have used these!! 
Shop Products:
Core'dinations cardstock: Fancy Pants Like Father Like Son 'Be Strong' & 'Little Tike'
Buzz&Bloom: Photo Corners
Other: Dusty Attic Chipboard Scallop: Purple Pumpkin spotty button

Have a great week and thanks for looking .... be back with more soon

Helpful Cougar Boys!

I have just realised I missed by blog's birthday!!! I can't believe it is a year since I started it .... it has been a great year and I have made some great online friends so I would just like to say a BIG thank you to everyone who has read and left comments on my little blog over this first year, I really appreciate your support and hope it will continue for a long time to come!! :)

Now back to some scrapping stuff ... the theme at my2angels this month is 'Boys at Play'  so here is what I came up with for my first share! 
Back at the beginning of the football season we had a practice game and afterwards my 2 boys and our under 14’s managers little boy decided to ‘help’ out fetching in the goal posts! And as luck would have it I just happened to have my camera handy and grabbed this really cool photo!!   
I have used white core’dinations cardstock with some Sassafras Lass and October Afternoon papers in bluey greens to match our team colours. I have also used a piece of corrugated card (from a box some wine came in!!) and inked the edges to also match the team colours.
I have used a my2angels rhinestone circle to highlight the cheeky boy diving on the posts and my title/journaling comprises of Thickers Daiquiri,  Jenni Bowlin mini circle letters, a my2angels ‘love’ charm (sanded back to silver colour) and Sassafras Glitter alphas
The ‘Go Team Go’ , ‘play hard’, ‘spirit’ and ‘skill’ are SRM Stickers, ‘Reinforcement s Team’  which are excellent value! I stuck them onto card and hand or die cut around them so I could 3d some of them. The gorgeous silver camera is a my2angels charm and I’ve added a few aqua pearls to finish off. 
Will be back soon with some more 'boy' LO's to share ...... have a great week and thanks for looking!
