The grass is greener

I played along with the sketch challenge at SUYS this month.  It seems like I'm leaving it to last minute, but I've actually had this page done for a while now.  Here's the sketch:

And my page
The grass is greener with you two ... {just love this pic of my two} :-)

Oh how I love creating with bright colours :-) I've just loved every single bit of this Echo Park range!!!

Here's a close-up of the my handmade item - the green spotty flower which is from LovelyBugs Bits n Bobs

Have a great weekend to you all and as always, thanks for visiting my little blogspot :-) :-) I do love your comments :-) :-)

Birthday Boy

Hello again!  I'm back to share my entry to the Scrap The Boys October challenge which is to use a HANDMADE embellishment - pretty easy hey! :-) Of course, I did use a Rainbow Splendour pinwheel that I had on hand.

And made a little banner of sorts ...

Just LOVE the dumptruck chippy - it was perfect for this page as his cake is a dump truck cake - it just doesn't photograph very well!

And there's the map paper pinwheel :-)

As always, thanks for visiting!

Just a quick post today to share the new word up at BITW - "wish".  You will have one month to complete this project. When the time is up for the challenge our design team will vote for a first place winner and four featured winners.

 Here's my DT sample:

She had her eye on that Nursery Centre for a while and kept saying she wanted it for her birthday.  She was SO excited to actually receive it!!

A sweet spotty Lovelybug Bits n Bobs flower tucked in there ...

Scrap the Girls

I found myself searching for a challenge to do the other day and came across the Scrap The Girls challenge for October - distressing and use the word "love".
So, I distressed all the strips of pp in the heart and came up with this:

It's a little bit different for me and I still think it needs ... 'something' .... but I'm so over fiddling with it LOL!

It feels like ages since I playing along with these type of challenges - I've even done Scrap The Boys for this month!  I'll share with you soon :-) :-)

Have a great weekend and thanks for visiting :-)

BITW - Together

A couple of things today ... first up is ....

A new word at Bird is the Word :-)......  TOGETHER.

So much inspiration from the DT over on the BITW blog - check it out!  It's so exciting to see so many people play along - we are getting so many gorgeous entries :-)

Just a little reminder about our rules....we have very few.........Create a project using the word TOGETHER in your layout or journaling. Post this layout on your blog and link it up on the BITW blog. Also, please remember to give BITW credit when you post your image. Please link your blog POST - not your whole blog, as it makes it difficult for us to find your page :-)

The winnners for the SHARE challenge will be revealed next Sunday evening. Thanks to all who played along!!

Here is my page ... using a pic of my DD and her special little friend :-)

Close up of the delicious Lil Red Rocket cupcake button :-) :-)
And a Clouds and More cabochon :-) :-)

I hope you'll play along!!

Talking about Lil Red Rocket, we have a SALE DATE!!!  Mark your diaries :-) :-) :-)
