Savvy sketch challenge

I love a good sketch ... this one was a little different so thought I'd have a go :-).  I have used another old but precious photo ... my Grandad and my DD ...

I have used the You're Savvy kit for this page ... as well as a few added extras...

Not much crafting happening here lately.  Sick kids.  Need I say more!  LOL.  Can't wait for spring!!!

Thanks for visiting!

A special moment

I love this photo of my Grandma holding my DD (when she was just a bub).  I haven't had photos printed for ages, so went searching through some old ones for inspiration.  The colours matched perfectly with some left over Kaisercraft Pink Gelato I have here from my DT kit from Handmade by Suzanne.

I have used these coloured doilies often and lots of people have asked if I buy them like that or if I mist/colour them.  Well, I actually buy them like this!  From a craft shop (not scrapbooking shop - so don't think they are acid free).  The pack has heaps of different colours and they are quite fun :-)

You might notice, this page is rather like the sketch for this month!!  Unintenionally!!  But it is an awesome sketch :-) :-)

Don't forget to play along this month for your chance to win a voucher to the store!!!  :-) :-)

Have a great weekend :-)

Happy 4th birthday!!

I just love Lil Red Rocket bottletops!  Here is a page I created recently using a transport one:

This is my cute little nephew - all excited about his birthday :-) ... how awesome is that cake!!!  :-)

Here's a close-up of the bottletop:

The lollipop on the pin is from Clouds and More ... I made the denim lollipop flower.  The bookpaper banner is from Greatest View.   The red scroll felt is cut from a placemat!  I was waiting for the 'right' page to use some on :-)

Once again, thanks for visiting!  Thanks for all the lovely comments too :-)
Have a great week,

Bird is the Word - TODAY

The new word at Bird is the Word is TODAY ...
love it ...
This is the inspirational sketch to use if you wish:

I did base my page on the sketch this time ...


When I first started scrapping, I scrapped all my wedding photos.  Just recently, I've had a few printed off again so I can have a bit more play :-).  Loving the Echo Park Be Mine collection - it's so perfect for my wedding pics - our wedding colours were pink (magenta actually) and silver :-) :-).  You might see a few more wedding pages soon ... just sayin. ;-)

See the sweet little crystal rose cameo and lots of cabochons - these are all from Clouds and More (a fav store!!!)

Hiding under the butterfly is a little doily from another fav store Greatest View :-) ...

Check out the other DT sample creations HERE and hope you can play along :-) we really love all the entries we get!!!

LaBelle Photoshoot

Reccently, we had a photoshoot with our favourite photographer LaBelle Photographics.  The kids had so much fun ... her studio is loaded with toys and fun props  - even lollipops!  :-)  And, same as always, the end result is lots and lots of gorgeous photos ... so difficult to chose which ones to share, but i'm sure you will see many more on future pages ;-) I just love each and every one!!!

So ... here's a little peek ...

I must mention, my kids don't get very many lollies - in fact, the little Mister is so 'deprived', he has never had a lollipop in his life (Miss B has had one or 2). So .... to begin with, he was like ... 'what's this???'

Just quietly, this little Mister went a little hyper ... maybe it was the red colouring??? He really put on a show anyway ... lots of funny shots like this:

tee hee ...

Now I just have to choose a pic for a new blog header :-)

Hope you are all having a lovely weekend :-) :-) :-)

All things Lil Red Rocket ...

A Lil Red Rocket post today!  I just love all things LRR ... I am so honoured to be on this fabulous DT ... love it to bits :-) :-)

So, to share today, I have a page using a cute bottle top ...

Farm boy:

A close-up of the very boyish bottle top ... and you might notice a rolled lollipop from Clouds and More ... and a lollipop from Charm's Creations ...

The star doily peeking out there is LRR too :-) just love these!!!!
And another Charm's Creations lollipops :-)

Then ...

I had a play with one of these:

and made a card for my bestie:

This is one of my MOST favourite colour combos :-).  You'll spot a star doily again - they are just the perfect size for cards!!!

I'm off to keep creating ... or maybe it's time to pack up and get some sleep.  Either way, thanks for visiting :-) have a great weekend!
