I'm guilty...

of neglecting my blog aren't I? Oh dear! I'll have to try harder.  I'll do a "little" catch up post so if you manage to get to the end THANK YOU!! :-)

Firstly a page that I did for the Lime Tree Creations April challenge. Becci set a fabulous sketch that I just had to use and this is the page that resulted.

I used some of the gorgeous ScrapCake "One Moment in Time" papers (which you can get here... One Moment in Time ) and lots of Handmade Halo goodies :-)  Look at those gorgeous Corinne made flowers!! the super adorable pebbledashers; those fabulous doilies AND to top it all off perfectly the sweetest butterfly charm. And of course some Lime Tree Creations crochet trim... YUM!

In this next page I've used some gorgeous new Handmade Halo resin & flowers as well as some beautiful pebbledashers... I was spoilt for choice from my yummy Halo stash!

I was drawn to the cute Halo robot buttons & cog pebbles so I used them with some cute photos of my two boys that have been sitting on my desk for a while. My two VERY cheeky boys!! :-)

Next up is a Step-by-step challenge set by Chloe at Scrapz.Biz. I've used lots of yummy handmade embellies on this page from A lil' Somethin and Apple Tree Lane Designs.

 AND last but not least (I hope LOL!) is a Scrapz.Biz Scrap it Blind challenge set by Aga. Look at those gorgeous Rainbow Splendour trees!! & my favourite, must go to embellie... mini pinwheels!! :-) I just love this photo of my DS1... he has always loved being outside helping his Dad.

Thanks so much for sticking with this loooonnngg post... I do have another page to share but I haven't photographed it yet so I'll have to make sure I do that soon & stay up to date from now on :-)

I hope everyone is having a great weekend!!

Back to school again!

I thought I'd pop in tonight with a couple of pages to share now that I've finished getting all the kidlet's things ready for the first day back at school tomorrow... I'm not exactly sure where the past 2 weeks went but holidays are over here in Qld once again *sigh*. I'm ready to have some quiet time during the day again though I must admit LOL!

This page was for a sketch challenge set by Aga at Scrapz.Biz. It was a fabulous sketch & you also had to use brads... I've got a lot of brads so I had to give this challenge a go :-)
I used the dark background paper for this page so that I could also enter a challenge over at C'est Magnifique.

I've used a Rainbow Splendour yellow doily which was perfect & the cute little book paper envelope which worked in really well too :-)

This next page was for a What's Cooking challenge set by Chloe over at Scrapz.Biz as well. This time we had to use chipboard. I was inspired by how Chloe used chipboard on her sample page so I did something similar with my title on this page. I used raw chipboard letters & then embossed over the top :-)  There's also some RBS pinwheels on here too... just LOVE RBS pinwheels!!!!

For all those with kidlets heading back to school in the morning all the best!!
Take care everyone xxoo

Nearly here :-)

Easter that is :-)

I thought I'd pop in & share a page that I did for Chloe's Scrap it Blind challenge at Scrapz.Biz last month. I used some Handmade Halo charms which really suited the 7Dots Studio paper line that I used.

I also wanted to let you know about Samantha's April giveaway... YUMMO!!! Pop over & check it out. Samantha is one talented girl too & her wonderful work always inspires me :-)

Well, I have two little boys having races around the house so I'd better go & "gently direct" them outside LOL!!!

Have a wonderful & safe Easter everyone!

Splendid RBS

Boy! the weeks slip by so fast don't they? Sunday afternoon once again & I hope you've had a fabulous weekend. My kidlets are very excited to have started holidays & they are looking forward to the Easter Bunny paying a visit soon :-)

I have a couple of pages to share with you today. I love playing along with challenges (I don't think I'm alone there am I girls?) and Scrapz.Biz have lots of my favourites. This page was for a Base Jump challenge set by the very talented Chloe.

I've used a Rainbow Splendour yellow flower, a Star Felt Pop & a green mini pinwheel. Aren't they all so fabulous for a fun boys page? Just perfect!!

This next page was for a sketch challenge set by Natalie & you had to use washi tape... so I kinda used a fair bit LOL!!! But look at the gorgeous red RBS Pinwheel that definitely takes centre stage.

Well' I'm going to go & get stuck into some more challenges :-) I'm hoping I get some scrapping done over the holidays & I also hope that the kidlets get on well so that I'm not playing referee too much... wishful thinking probably but I can always live in hope can't I???? LOL!
