Camel Train

This month at My2Angels we have had the very talented Melinda Spinks as the Guest Desiginer for the month and she kindly designed a sketch for us to play with ... check out the M2A blog for other versions .... but here is my take! Firstly though ... I apologise for the photos I took them in artificial light and they are not the best!! Take that back I have changed them .... much more realistic colours now!!!

I didn’t have any Halloween photos to scrap but I did want to use Halloween colours as they matched my photo!!
I’ve used Core’dinations Nightfall and Orange (pumpkin coloured!) cardstock and some spotted Rusty Pickle Paper ... very sad that RP is no more!! I cut the orange card to A4 size so I could put it through my printer to print the palm tree image I found on the internet!  I then attached it to my Nightfall card together with some pieces of the spotted paper tucked behind the card. I’ve also used the same paper as my strip across the page (as on the sketch).
 And as all the photos I have scrapped this month have been from our recent holiday I have again chopped up my photo! this time into three pieces! I have also used another gorgeous My2Angels Frangipani flower (as in my last LO) to try and carry a theme through my album!!  Sliced photos and flowers LOL!!!
The title is Scrapware Antique Lowercase Alpha, which I have stamped and covered with a light coat of Tim Holtz Rock Candy just for a slightly shiny effect. I’ve also used some of my favourite alphas, Jenni Bowlin Tiny Circle Alphas and Thickers Daiquiri! Both these alphas get used ALL the time!!! To finish off I used a My2Angels Black Rhinestone Flourish, a Smiley Sun Charm and some white Ric Rac. Oh and my journalling is on Bazzill Kraft!
I hope you like .... TFL and for anyone who is kind enough to leave a comment .... thanks again!!
Enjoy the rest of your weekend! and Happy Halloween!!

No Clouds only Sunshine ...

The intense blue of the sky on these photos gave me the idea for the title for this LO and for any of my regular readers you must know how much I LOVE using clouds!!! 
I ordered this October Afternoon Seaside Seashells paper for the gorgeous banners, but when I received my order I fell in love with the reverse of the paper ... a red woodgrain effect which matched Sam's rashie and the red of the rocks behind him perfectly! And being a plank effect it still has the desired beachy feel.
I put a strip of the My2Angels Black Stars Felt Ribbon across the page and then positioned my photos above the felt. I've 3D taped the large photo and the middle one of the 3 for dimension.  The cloud is from Scrapware (and the smaller one is a left over of some B&B ones I had) I have inked the large cloud with VersaMagic Jumbo Java Brown ink and Mel I get through this ink like you do with Pinecone ... although not in the same way I might add!!!
I love these new Thickers that Tracy got in a little while ago, Emerald in flocked Hay and flocked Seafoam which I have used for my ‘Clouds’ and ‘Sunshine’ and of course I couldn't do a LO without using some Jenni Bowlin Tiny Circle Aphas in both Reverse Black and Vintage Brown!!!
When we were in Broome there were frangipani trees everywhere which were really pretty,so what better way to give my LO a bit of a tropical look, than by adding some My2Angels Yellow and White Frangipanis.
Finally I have added a Whimsy bird pin and stapled on some pieces of gutter mesh ... yes good old pvc gutter mesh!! I have a bit of a liking for it at the moment .... I have also used it on some cards I just made too!!! It's especially cool for boy cards!!!
Thanks for looking as always ... catch you soon!

Paradise Found .....

What an AWESOME time we had in Broome the week before last .... it was hot, the water was warm and the company was the BEST!!! A huge thank you to my bestie Corrina for the awesome company too!! You are the BEST babe ... love ya heaps! xx

And to reflect my new found love for Broome I came up with this LO of the beautiful sunset on the equally beautiful Cable Beach! I've gone with the less is more on this LO so as not to take away from the photo!
I have used Nightfall and Sunflower Co-ordinations cardstock and some October Afternoon papers, Seaside Sandcastle and Thrift Shop Last One. I have inked some of the edges with black ink and one others used a border punch. My photo, I cut into 1” strips (a bit scary!) and then stuck it onto the sunflower cardstock.  I've used 3D mounting tape to attach the photo. 
The title is a mixture of AC Thickers Emerald Flocked Hay and Daiquiri Black (one of my all time favourites) together with some Jenni Bowlin Tiny Circle Alpha in Black.
I hand stitched a mini sun around the ‘i’ of ‘Paradise’ and also stitched on some of the lattice punching. 
 I tied a My2Angels ‘Made with a Smile’ Charm onto the ‘d’ of ‘found’ and  to finish added a My2Angels Yellow Mulberry Flower , folded in half and tucked behind my photo.

Thank you so much for looking and for any comments I really do appreciate them ... I'll be back with some more holiday scrapping real soon!! and luckily 'Summer' is one of the themes this month over at My2Angels so pop over to the blog and check out the other DT girls creations. The very talented Melinda Spinks is joining us this month as the guest DT, really love her work. 
Have a great week ....
