Daddy's arms

I'm just squeezing this in by the skin of my teeth, but I do tend to work well under pressure LOL. It's for the 1st September challenge at Scrap A While ... I have enjoyed their challenges this month.
A bit of a mix of bits and pieces. Bo Bunny, Sass, Tim Holtz tape...
I misted over a chipboard swirly thing. It would have to be my favourite thing to do ATM! Love the look. The cute little journalling spot I recieved in a swap :-)
Well, I'll be back tomorrow with LOTS of new challenges!!!! Woot woo!!!!!

October sneaks ...

Here are some sneaks for October reveals:
Pink and blue - love that combo :-)

Mmmm... love that doily paper!
More pink LOL :-)

BUT... what I am MOST EXCITED about is my guest DT position .... at a VERY SPECIAL place who is having a BIRTHDAY next month ;-)

This is a sneak of my GDT page:

Any guesses which is what and what is which?!?!?

It's spring!!

I decided to play along to a 'spring' themed challenge over at Scrap A While this month. I tried out a (sort of) mini scene type page, I don't do this very often, but I must say, I am happy with the end result :-)
Loving this spring weather :-) and loving that cloud paper :-) I think I need some more!! LOL

Black and white and blue

This is the colour challenge at Savvy this month...

Our little Mister is a bit more adventurous than his big sister was ... bit of a shock to the system!!! Here, he's trying ever so hard to open a cabinet. He doesn't give up in a hurry either LOL.

I had some fun with misting on this one as you can see. Cut out some stars and misted over the top. Some strips of fabric in there as well as other bits and pieces.

Thanks for visiting and hope your week is going well so far :-)

Helping Daddy

I have used some more old photos, but this little girl has always loved helping Daddy. It's such a special treat to go to the shed and play with all the interesting things like screwdrivers, climb up the step ladders, and play in the trailer. Who needs toys at all really. LOL

I have used the September sketch from Scrapbook from Scratch.

Twiddleybitz chippy and other little bits and pieces:
That's it for now, I'll be back with some more tomorrow :-)

A Savvy CC page

The last day for uploading Savvy CC challenges today and I have only managed to get one done. Loved the criteria for this one:
polka dots
3 different alphas
scallops in at least 2 different places

I have used more of the We're Savvy kit.

LOL at that cousins photo - do you know how difficult it was to get them all looking in the same direction at once?? Then, they actually had to stay still!! LOL .... but it was fun :-). They are all growing up sooo quick :-)

We're Savvy kit page

I was lucky enough to get a We're Savvy kit from Scapbook Savvy this month. You have to be quick to get their kits, they sell out SUPER fast!! This page is for the kit challenge this month:
a BIG bow
split title
2 different sized photos

All products are from the kit, apart from the few buttons, rhinestones and the glimmermist. I've used some old photos on this page, that little girl is now FOUR!!! Can you see the sweet little paper clips? They are sooo cute :-)

Thank you for visiting :-)

2 Crafty

The 2 Crafty Chipboard blog has a colour challenge this month.
Chocolate Brown
Sea Blue
Rosy Red
Sky Blue

So, since I have a fab stash of 2 Crafty chippy here, I thought I would give this one a try! Love the colours together :-)

Tame the lion:

(DH chose this title .... LOL)
Here's a close up of the yummy chippy piece. I don't use chipboard all that much ... for some weird reason I get a bit unsure what to do with it?!?! Here, I misted it, drew the outline of the stars with white pen and layered the whole lot over ribbon and buttons. I used minimal other embellies to keep this the main focal point.
Did you see the scallops and the negative scallops?? I was inspired by this fabulous scrapper ... who uses scallops and negative scallops superbly :-) ...

Well, best keep going .... things to do and all that!!

Have a great week :-)

Design Dollies challenge

I haven't played along with a Design Dollies challenge for what feels like ages. So, this week, I decided to do the elements challenge - which was birthday themed, and the colour challenge - which was red, orange, blue and green.

I combined both challenges and made this:
I stamped "happy birthday" in blue ink, and it didn't really come up well in the photo. Looks a tad better IRL, promise :-).

Have a great weekend :-)

September 15th Stuck?! Sketch

The second sketch for the month is up at Stuck?! Sketches! It's a fun one:

I have created a LO of our 'Little Mister' .... which he tends to get called a lot.
Oh, but he's a cute Little Mister!!

There's a LilRedRocket button in there ... see it?? And I thought the sketch just begged for misting ... hehe .... but then again, I love my misting .... and splotches .... it's about as messy as I get.

Head over to the Stuck blog and see the other CT takes on this sketch .... fab pages!!

In other news, I have been scrapping up a storm ... just nothing I can share just yet :-). Hope you are having a great week :-)

Going on a Road Trip ...

well, a Prima Road Trip :-). Suzanne from Handmade by Suzanne sent me the Prima Road Trip Collection to play with this month. What fun!!! Love the colours - perfect for travel themed pages and pages of little boys ... as you can see LOL.

He loves his wheels:
I also recieved Sassafras chocolate glitter alphas in my DT pack .... which are as yummy as they sound!! :-). Also available from the store is the twine, the cardstock and glimmermist (can you even see it in the photo??)

Look at this cute button I found in my stash:

I just love smiley faces :-) :-) :-)

Fun in a box:

Who needs toys when playing in a cardboard box is just as fun?? LOL. You might notice I used the cut out piece of pp from the LO above for the background on this page. I have used the Sass Lass alphas again and the twine and also some stitched grosgrain ribbon also available in the store.
Holiday time:
Every year at Christmas time, we head to the Bunya Mountains and spend time with our families. We love it .... spending time with family like this is so special ... and very important for us. The Prima Road Trip Collection was perfect for this photo as was this:
...the Scrapware vintage luggage chippy. Cute hey!!
Lastly, I made a card, using the September sketch by Liz Weber.
The sketch is open to both LO's and cards this month ... with a $20 voucher up for grabs why don't you play along!!!!
HBS is also sponsoring Kraft it Up, Scrap the Girls and Let's Get Shabby this month - even more chances to win so why not challenge yourself :-).
Don't forget the SALE ITEMS at Handmade By Suzanne .... and there are lots of delicious NEW ARRIVALS as well ;-)

Tidbitz In Time

I had lots of plans with this Tidbitz In Time kit, but sadly, I became very unwell and didn't get to do all I had planned. Anyway, these are the last creations I managed before everything went pear shaped!

Twinkle twinkle little star:

I have used the 2nd bonus sketch at Stuck?! Sketches for this LO. I added some alphas, the kraft cardstock, another doily (oh how I love doilies LOL) and glimmermist, all else is from the kit. There were even starfish on some of the pp to cut out to suit my title :-)
And see that amazing vintage button!!! How fun does it look!!

I just loved these "Special Event" tickets and immediately thought to put them on an invitation! I splattered some pink Shimmerz for some sparkle :-)

So, that brings us to the end of my kit reveal. I'd just like to say a huge THANK YOU to Wendy for having me on the DT this month - I've had an amazing time :-) :-)

Have a great weekend everyone! Sorry I haven't visited and commented very often lately... hopefully things will be back to 'normal' soon and I'll get a chance to pop by all my favourite blogs :-)

It's a new month!!!

And up go all the new challenges :-)

Here is the 1st September sketch at Stuck?! Sketches:

I was creating with the awesome kit from Tidbitz In Time! Just loved this music paper ...

{I used another photo by LaBelle Photographics}

I even made my own flower using my scalloped circle punch, adding some pearls and a button :-)
I added the doilies again, but everything else is from the kit. Such a fantastic range of items, I really didn't need to add much! There was even some 'bling' - the sequins ... see them scattered randomly??
So, hope you can play along with the sketches at Stuck?! Sketches this month .... check out the September sponsors to see what you could win!!! And see what fab pages the other DT members created HERE. Don't forget that the birthday bonus sketches and blog hop don't finish until September 10th, so still a few more days to get your entries in for those :-)
Happy creating!!
I'll be back soon with the last of my pages from the Tidbitz In Time kit :-)
