A face ...

Happy weekend ... can you believe it will be March on Tuesday!!!!??!!!!
Of course February is the month our little munchkins go back to school after the long summer break, so here I've scrapped the yearly 'back to school morning' photo! Love this photo it gives the impression my 11 year old was really happy to be going back but that is not really the case!!! As the title suggests a face can paint a very different picture! after 7 weeks off he never wants to go back to school!!!

Tracy at My2Angels sent me some The Girls Paperie-Toil & Trouble papers this month and I have to say I love them! The black and white ‘Writing on the Wall’ I used in my last project and this orange and black ‘Ghost Story’ I’ve used for this LO are SO up my alley (it seems the boss knows me well)!

I used the Echo Park-Little Boy ‘Denim-Lizard’ for the background (both sides are fantastic boy colours and I ordered 2 sheets so I still get to use the Denim side too!) The orange papers are the two sides of TGP Toil & Trouble ‘Ghost Story’ (love the orange and white gingham pattern!) The little pieces of green paper are some leftovers I had of TGP Toil & Trouble ’Writing on the Wall’.
My photo has been matted on Core’dinations Nightfall Cardstock and I also used it for my journaling circle and as a background for my title.  The title uses AC Thickers Daiquiri (my favourite ‘go to’ alpha!) and a Rusty Pickle alpha that unfortunately is no longer available L. The green oval ‘words’ are cut from a piece of Prima So Cute ‘Growing’.
Oh and how cute is that 'Space Invaders' tape??

... AND I have also made some more cards!!!!

A cute one using some Prima So Cute paper

Another using YUMMY Cosmo Cricket Circa 1934 (again!!!) and a my2angels daisy charm

 and finally 2 more using a Hambly Screenprint paper
with the gorgeous MS butterfly punch here ...

... and some Baker's Twine and a my2angels LOVE charm here!

Can't wait for the Black and Light Green twines to arrive in stock and of course the pink one will be gorgeous for girl projects!

Well thats all for today ... now I'm going to have to find time to make something to share!!! What a shame! LOL!! Really looking forward to my Echo Park For the Record papers to arrive from Tracy ... can't wait to play!! They look like great boy colours!! perfect for me!!!

As always THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH for visiting and for your lovely comments,
Have a great weekend....

Family ...

Shock horror I did an OTP! Now obviously I'm not in the same league as my my2angels boss, Tracy, the Queen of OTP's, but I like it!!!  
This started its life as a new home card ... but the house came out so well I couldn't bear to give it away!!!!
So I made it into a door hanger!!!

I've used lots of chippy ..... the house, fence, grass and flowers are Scrapware, the clouds are Dusty Attic! 
 I have also used a MLBOW Bee and the 'Family' is a free chippy that I had in my stash!!

Oh and don't forget this is the last day of the My2Angels Sale ... hop on over there and check out the bargains! You only have a few hours left. Also check out the Coming Soon section and the New Arrivals section, I personally can't wait for the new Bakers Twine and Charms to come in .... so cute!!! Oh and of course ALL the new PAPER ranges, Pink Paislee {heart this}, Echo Park, Sassafras Lass, Websters, Graphic 45 and of course a huge range of Prima ..... me? I can't wait for the PP!!

On a personal note ... good luck to a certain someone tomorrow (you know who you are)!
Sending big {{HUGS}} your way xx

TFL .... and for all your wonderful comments! I'll be back again soon, 
(Although I am on slow internet speed for a couple of days ... nasty teenage boys used up all my downloads!!!!)

Brothers LO share ... and a Sale!

A quick post to share a LO .... YAY I did a LO!!!
AND to let you know about the


 over at My2Angels

50% OFF all RIBBONS (excluding organza) from 15th Feb to 20th Feb
and this is in addition to the February monthly sale of 30% OFF all BLING!

My LO uses the gorgeous Cosmo Cricket Circa 1934 papers ...
This main paper is the reverse of  Garbo which is still available at My2Angels  but you'd better hurry on over there to grab it, and whilst you are there check out the rest of the SALE!

As well as a large sheet of the Garbo paper I also have a 6x6 pad of these papers .. or should I say had ..... there is not much of it left now and I can't wait for the new collections to hit our shores!! So one of the small squares is actually Garbo again but in a smaller print which is what I love about the mini pads!! Same patterns but different because of the size of the print!!

Oh .... and of course my Dymo sneaked in there again LOL!!

I didn't have the chipboard or stickers to match the papers so I made the embellies myself by cutting out the shapes from the papers themselves and layering them  ... 
... I also used some rub ons
The alphas are AC Thickers Emerald & one of my all time favs Black Daiquiri.
Oh and the little birdie is a My Little Bit of Whimsy ... 

Sorry the colours are not the best on these as I didn't have the best light to take the photos! So the close ups look a different colour to the full page!!!! my bad!!

Thanks for stopping by ... really appreciate that you guys keep coming back!!
Until next time  ...

Love Trio ....

It is the time for L O V E .... so to celebrate I made a trio of LOVE cards using some gorgeous goodies from My2Angels
All these cards use the same patterned papers, The Girls Paperie, Toil & Trouble – Writing on the Wall and Echo Park, Little Boy – Strawberry & Sky.  I have used Core-dinations Nightfall & Bazzill Kraft cardstocks. The white card I have used is some I managed to find in my stash! I am ALWAYS running out of Black & White cardstock!!

For J’taime I have have embossed the Echo Park paper with the Script Cuttlebug Embossing folder  and I have threaded some My2Angels White Hearts Satin Ribbon through a punched border between the 2 papers. The My2Angels Silver Self Adhesive Rhinestone Heart was stuck onto the Echo Park paper and then mounted onto black cardstock.
‘Love’ is Scrapware Chipboard Antique Lowercase Alphas, very lightly inked,  the ‘o’ though is a My2Angels Circle Pendant, covered with the embossed Echo Park paper and then a My2Angels Eiffel Tower charm (how gorgeous is this"!). To carry on with the French theme I have used my Dymo to punch out a j’taime’ label!!

Love Stitch
For this one I have used Kraft cardstock with the same papers. I’ve used a couple of die cut labels and stuck them on to look like they wrap around the whole card. I’ve used some red embroidery thread to ‘sew’ the labels together.
 The ‘Love’ title is a My2Angels Love Pin but I have chopped off the bottom of the pin (so sorry Tracy!!) and mounted it onto 2 die cut circles of black cardstock.  I’ve fake stitched around the inside label.

Lock & Key
For the final one I’ve used white cardstock with the same papers, I loved playing with all different coloured cardstocks with the same papers ... you can get such different results.
 I punched the edges of both papers and again used some My2Angels Black with White Hearts, satin ribbon. I then onto the ribbon a My2Angels Large Silver Heart Locket and Love Key charm.
The 2 tiny hearts are Maya Road Trinket Pins and for 'love' I've used my Dymo again!! just love it!!! I finished by applying some Inkssentials White Enamel to the holes made by the punching on the red paper.

... and to finish a couple of photos from my DS's football training session on the beach last week! It had been 36 degrees here in the day and the beach and water was just fabulous! But then I, ONLY went for a walk and a swim .... he did a 6km run up the beach and multiple sprints on the soft sand !!!! so it was a tad harder work for him than me LOL!!!

BTW this one is NOT my child thank goodness!!!

If anyone else is having problems with photos loading on their posts, can you tell me how to fix it! I've never had a problem previously but the last 2 posts I've had to play with the size of the picture so it loads when you open the page ... & please let me know if the photos are not loading when you open this post! Thanks :):)

TFL and for all your lovely comments .... makes my day that you take the time to leave some love .... thank you SO much!! 
.... still loving making these cards ....
Till next time .....

.... that is all I have to share at the moment, some cards I've made for upcoming birthdays etc! I'm currently busy looking for my scrapping alter ego ... it seems to have run away and been taken over by my card making one LOL!!! I've found the card making has really helped me to relax over the last couple of weeks so I'm just going with the flow at the moment.
