Telling My Story

Miss M is becoming quite a little chatterbox! We just love listening to her telling us her stories!

This LO is based on the current sketch at Sketchabilities #95. I love the focus of my layouts to be the photos and these sketches are great for that.

 I have used more of the cool papers from Prima's Jodie Lee Art Journal pad from Scottie Crafts. I love the background papers in this pad.
To make the ink circles, I sprayed a little Dylusions inks onto a craft mat, dipped various container lids into the ink and stamped with them. (a pot lid for the large circle )

The alphabet mask is a Dylusions stencil and texture paste.

Off to have lunch with a scrappy friend!! Fun!

Baby Shower

We had so much fun at my daughter-in-law, Aimee's, baby shower! Well organised by Kate and Emma!! The most exciting part for me is that by the end of August, I will have a Grandson, so now I get to buy and make cute little boy and girl things!!

I used the sketch at Scrapfriends for this layout. Their sketches always encourage me to do something that is different to my usual style. So much fun!

And a little close-up:

Enjoy your day!

Hello fingers!

I loved the 'Stuck!' sketch for July! Check it out here! I was looking for a great sketch to use for this cute photo taken by Sonya at Born Perfection photography ( a friend of Em's).

And a close up of the journaling:

I pretty much kept to the sketch because I loved all the circles and butterflies. I got out some doily dies, my Prima circle stencil, a Glitz large rhinestone and some Flair Badges from Paper Vine. ( I used the scallop circle negatives as a mask over the Prima stencil and scraped some Gelatos into Reeves iridescent medium to paste over)

I am also putting this layout into the challenges at:
Berry71Bleu - Anything goes
Southern Girls - No Spoolin'

We are enjoying very crisp weather here, but glorious sunshine - a perfect day to go for a walk!

Love this face

These gorgeous photos were taken by a photographer friend of Em's! I just love Madison's facial expressions!

I came across the Life.Paper.Scrapbook sketch challenge (via Sarah Groen's blog) which had a great sketch for these three little photos that I had printed out.

I am also going to put this Frosted Designs current Friday challenge, Use 2 of ribbon, twine or washi.
I have used twine and washi.

Off to light the fire! Gorgeous day this morning, but the rain has come over and the temperature just plummets!

My gorgeous girls

I love these photos of Emma and Madison - my gorgeous girls!
The very pretty new Kaisercraft collection, True Romance, which I picked up in Scottie Crafts recently, had just the colours I needed!
I used the sketch #94 from Sketchabilities. Check it out here.

And close ups!

I am also putting this layout into the Southern Girls Challenge, 'Use leaves'

This blog is short, but I just want to get back to my desk and scrap!!
