Photoshop play!

This is my entry for the Week 8 comp over at Scrapbook Outlet. The theme was Maori Design and we had to include some paper weaving and?or korus (swirls). I paper weaved 4 hearts to make a flower (took hours LOL!) I then embossed them with clear. I also clear embossed the fussy cut swirls. I was playing in photoshop the other day and got this cool effect on this photo of my DS's GF and so wanted to use it. She was dressed for a friend's Arabian night's party.
 So.. this is what I came up with! I had so much fun doing this LO!

Celebrate NZ- Sports

I have had this wonderful photo of Emma which I took while she was training. At the time Lloyd was working with Danyon Loader in Christchurch and Danyon signed the photo as a surprise birthday present. I have taken it out of the frame and scanned it, because I thought it was perfect for this NZ Sports challenge! Danyon was a NZ gold medal Olympian in butterfly. Em managed a bronze at NZ champs before having to give up with a back injury.

Song title

The challenge for Week 7 at Scrapbook Outlet was to use a song title or words. I chose Neil Finn 's (Split Enz, 1980) I Got You. Jeff is always acting the goat and teasing Aimee and this song had such appropiate words that I had to use for the journalling. "I got you - that's all I want." "You show me- tell me you're not teasin'." "You can see my eyes, you can tell I'm not lyin'" I added a bit of black paint in the background, some TH music tape and a handmade flower embellishment using cricut cut leaves and TH tattered flowers die.

Birdlife in the garden

I looked out the window this morning and saw these three cock pheasants strutting around. I had to grab my camera! One thing about these drizzly winter and early spring days that I love, is seeing the birds that come out into the garden. Here are some pics that I have taken over recent days.

Another wedding LO!

The week 5 topic at Scrapbook Outlet, Beaches/water, gave me an excuse to get another wedding photo scrapped. Some may say that because I am into the second album (mostly because I could only get 15 into the first one!) that I might have enough!! But the photos taken by Aaron Lang Photography, are so gorgeous, I just want to scrap them all!

I made all the pink flowers with a Cristina Re paper that has a gorgeous sheen that went well with the shiny Bazzill. The fussy cut flowers are from a piece of K&Co paper that I have had for years. The pearls and journalling tag are Prima. I love the new Tim Holtz paper music tape that I got from Scotty Crafts! I also added a little bit of paint to frame the photo.
