Love you!

Today I created for me! And I really enjoyed it! 
I chose a new challenge site to be inspired by. 
Here is what I created.....


And a couple of close ups. 


This is the challenge I was inspired by.....


Gorgeous hey? 
I played with the sketch, the mood board and I used thread as well. 
And to make sure it was complete I used a gorgeous cutz2luv flair! 
Thanks for stopping by and hope you get s chance to have some creative time too.

Shine - STB

Happy first day of winter everyone, 
Its getting colder here in South Australia and it makes the perfect scrapbooking time!! 
Today I'm sharing my DT layout for Scrap the boys.

I loved playing with all the colours, and using some favourite pieces along the way.


I also made a little video for it, which you can find here.....

Thanks everyone for your support. And I can't wait to see what you create.

Good times - STB

Hi everyone,
This month over at Scrap the boys we have a challenge celebrating mums and the boys in their lives.
Here is my DT work....

Our sponsor is 2Crafty, and I adore their chipboard, so much choice so much versatility.

I painted and embossed my chippy to add a bit of texture and grungy old feel.

I can't wait to see what you all create this month.
Have fun and will see you soon.

Chicken head, Duck Face - PictureThis!

Welcome to April!
Months are flying, and its time to share a new challenge over at
Picture This!
This month we have a colour theme, Green with White or Green with Black.
(Its not easy being green)
And so this is my interpretation......
I love the way green looks with white, crisp and vibrant,
I did use a few black stamps to add contrast.
And i decided to use a few of my chipboard pieces raw to add interest.
Sometimes I find it easier to work with only one colour in many shades because it feels coherent.
I hope you get to have a play over at PictureThis with us this month.
I would love to see your creations.

Epic - Scrap the Boys

Happy March everyone,
This year is flying!!!
So we have a new challenge over at STB for this month and its a Dirty one!
Scrap a page with Dirt on it!
You can use a photo with dirt or use dirt on your layout, you choose.
Here is what I created.....
My boys are a little older now and don't get quite as dirty as they use to.
So I remembered a photo taken of my youngest when he went to work with his dad.
Both my boys came back filthy but Asha screamed dirt!!! LOL!!!
His eyes popped out from this dirt covered face, Just so adorable.

I love my chipboard and try to incorporate it in some way on every layout.
Its so very versatile, and adds layers which I just love to use.
A little mixed media and stamping helps add to layers, and I tried to choose ones that felt a little grubby?
I added a few glass cabochons to create a water feel for the bath.

Ah that sweet little face makes me smile of a time when my boys were younger,
and just being good ol boys!
I cant wait to see what you all create for this challenge, its certainly a fun one.
Till next we meet, Happy Scrapping, Em. xx
