Awesome Day ...

This is a layout I've done for My2Angels using Bo Bunny Ad Lib! 
Very bright funky papers, which suited my beach photos perfectly!

I started, as I often do, with a white cardstock background, which I have then ‘paint stamped’ blue and green circles all over, using a piece of packaging tube!! Cool eh?!?  I’ve then used the Ab Lib Wild Thing paper for the large piece of my background and added 2 circles of the Vertigo. I inked all the edges with VersaMagic Jumbo Java and then dot stitched along some of the stripes on the circles.
 I’m so into stitching at the moment, real and fake!!!

I also used a lot of 3d tape on this LO, even the main piece of Wild Thing is stuck on with 3d tape! 

All the little stickers from the Combo Alpha Stickers have been stuck onto some black board to make them stand out too.  For the title I’ve used a piece of the reverse pattern of the Vertigo paper and I’ve used the aqua stickers from the Combo Alpha Stickers and some Thickers Daiquiri in my NEW favourite colour, green!!!! 

Seeing as we did lots of bike riding on this day (and I had the sore behind to prove it!!)  I have added a My2Angels Bike charm on a smaller circle of the Vertigo paper and added various words using Carolees Creations Tiny Etched Natural Alpha Stickers and some old rub-ons that I found in my stash.

 Some outlining of the words and more dots and I was done!  I absolutely love these papers! 

 Thanks so much for looking and for any comments you leave . . . I really, really do appreciate them xoxox

Back with more soon!

Anzac Day

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them 

This is a LO from Anzac Day 2009 . . . I still love it . . . we were waiting at the train station after attending the dawn service at the war memorial . . . it was still only around 7am and he was very tired . . . a very special memory

Whatever you are doing today remember those special people who gave their lives for us xxx

Be back soon . . .

Wedding Card . . .

Just a quick post to share this wedding card I made for a friend.

I've had this flower punch forever, I actually have a large one, medium one and this small one, Corrina and I bought them from a craft show around 4 years ago! Before I developed my die addiction!!!!
But I have recently been inspired to use it again thanks to the very talented Melinda whose work I just LOVE!

A close up of the flower detail! 

Thanks for popping in ... hope you are having a great Easter weekend!!

Meeting the locals ...

I have been playing with the gorgeous Pink Paislee Hometown Summer Range, and for anyone who read my previous post .... YES I am so loving green and white at the moment! 
Here is my Take 2 on this awesome colour combination!
I started off with some Snowflake cardstock and then used both sides of the Green Acres paper for my background. I sanded the edges of both the papers and then mounted the smaller piece on to some cardboard to lift it off the page.  I then added my photos (of the very cute little Quokkas) and then grabbed the PP Hometown Summer accessories. 
The banner is from the Border Stickers with Glitter which has some awesome patterns in it, and so easy because they are already made for you!! you gotta love that!!
I also used the cloud, sun, ‘Summer’ circle, Beautiful Day tag and the brown journaling tag from the Punch Outs. Again a great easy way to finish your layout!
The alphas are from the awesome Echo Park For the Record Alpha Cardstock stickers, for QUOKKA, ROTTO, the date and tab stickers. The rest of the aphas are Thickers Daiquiri, which I have now discovered in Green, very nice! and a change from my usual black! Oh and some Jenni Bowlin Tiny Circle Alphas.

Now a small confession, I stuffed up on my cloud! When I decided to outline the ‘locals’ with black pen (not my brightest decision considering everything else was finished!!!!) I managed to get pen all  over my hand and consequently all over my cloud L SO I ended up having to paint it! When it was dry I embossed it with white embossing powder and then added a little blue embossing around the edges to make it look like the original punch out! And ta da!!! stuff up fixed!
Don't forget to go check out this range and all the gorgeous Bo Bunny ranges at My2Angels HERE!
Back with some Bo Bunny projects real soon! 
Thanks for looking, I hope you all have a lovely Easter! with not TOO much chocolate!! Y

Good Luck ...

Well I was going to share a LO tonight but when I just checked the photos I took earlier in the day I couldn't use them! (wonky and when you crop them it looks like everything is not straight!!) so I will have to take some more tomorrow and post it then.

So instead I am going to share a couple more cards! 
The first one was for Ash, my hairdresser, who has decided to give up hairdressing, sob :( sob :( and have a change of career ... so no more cutting my hair!!! Don't know about you but I hate changing hairdressers!! Grrrr!! That said I wish Ash all the luck in the world! Y
 Next a birthday card ... just because and again using my favourite scallop die ... do you think I'm addicted to this die LOL?!?!?! I just love it!!! oh and twine too ... I can't get enough of that either!!
Lastly a sneaky of my LO which I promise to share tomorrow! Using one of these (click on link to see!) from my2angels ... very cool! I think I'll be using a few more of these!!
Thanks for popping by, I'll see you again tomorrow ...
Hope you're having a great weekend! Can't believe its Easter next weekend!
Where is this year going!?!? Y

Pretty in pink ...

I still have the card bug!!! although I am working on a LO at the moment but I was too tired tonight to sit at my desk (busy week!) so I decided to veg on the sofa, watch the footy and blog instead!!
This card was inspired by a technique I have seen the incredibly talented Melinda use a few times, lots of punched flowers which give an embossed effect .... very happy with how it turned out. 

I made the little tag to go with it too ... ultra cute don't you think?!!?!?

and a couple of photos from our weekend ... great time, great company ... and I got some great photos I can't wait to scrap .. I just have to get to the shops to get them developed!!

and of course the locals!!! Very cute!!!

Thats all for tonight .... heading off to bed now, catch you again soon 
Thanks as always for looking and for any blog love you leave, I really do appreciate it Y
