I hope ...

I really hope that these two will always be friends.  I guess it's a mother thing!  But, I hope our family is always close - even tho these 2 will grow up, I hope our family ties keep us together :-)

This is the forth page created using the gorgeous Scrapz Meadow Lark Ticklez kit ... it's such incredible value - I've made 4 pages and 3 cards, with some paper left over!!!

All the flowers are separate to the kit - but available in store.  I just loved all the Prima buttons and bling birds!  My most FAVOURITE think about this kit is, the 4 pages I created are all SO different, so many different looks from the one kit! 

There is still a page I haven't revealed - it is part of my Easter Step-By-Step .... pop over and check it out -  all the steps are up now and you have until TUESDAY 10 APRIL to get your pages in (that's the Tuesday after Easter).  One lucky person who plays along win receive a PRIMA PACK!!!  What a great Easter pressie ;-).

And, if you are good at guessing games, there's an Easter Egg guessing game happening too!!!  Be quick, guesses are due by Monday!!  A scrappy prize will be given to the person with the correct or closest guess!!! 

Thanks for visiting - have a great weekend :-)

So far, I've created 3 pages, with more left over ...

Her Smile:

These birds were just begging to be fussy cut out!!  (And I don't do much fussy cutting AT ALL!!  LOL)

I added some purple Prima flowers from my stash (available in store) cos I got a little carried away with the whole purple thing :-) :-) you know how it is ;-)


More fussy cut birds ...
and another Prima flower from my stash (find them here).  Love those Prima banners!

That's all I can share - however, if you want to see more ... AND ... if you want a FUN (EASY)CHALLENGE ... head on over to the Scrapz forum ....

Scrapz Ticklez kits

Over at Scrapz.Biz, they have a kit every month and this month I have been lucky enough to get my hands on one before they have sold out!!

 The kits are absolutely gorgeous, and this month is no exception.  Lots and lots of stunning Prima papers and embellies!! 

See what I mean?  Gorgeous!!

So many papers,

 gorgeous Prima alphas (I LOVE how they have so many different colours and fonts on the same sheet - great value!!  There's even words!!)

and lots of stunning embellies:


All Scrapz Ticklez kits are an amazing price of $29.95 plus postage.  So much is squeezed in for that price, it's fantastic value :-) :-).  Now, I haven't got anything to show you YET ... but I'm working on a project to be revealed soon over on the forum ;-) ;-) .... it's going to be a lot of fun, pop over and join in!!!

I've used the fabulous Echo Park A Boy's Life collection kit for this page ... so much fun!!

Here's my sketch:

Life is good

At 2 and a half, life can't be anything but good, can it :-).  Love the expression on the little Mister's face here :-).  (Photo by LaBelle Photographics)
{based on the Scrap The Boys March challenge - yes, that is red there - it's just a deep red :-) }

Close up of the gorgeous spotty flower and spotty button from Lil Red Rocket ... and the twine is LRR too :-)

Thanks for visiting, have a great week!

Christmas fairy

Yes, I am still scrapping Christmas photos :-) these are from the Christmas photo shoot with LaBelle Photographics.  We get soooo many GORGEOUS pics, I just wanna scrap them all :-) :-)
(based on the Scrap The Girls March challenge of 'celebrations')

I've used lots of Lil' Red Rocket goodies on this page ....
spotty buttons...
twine ...

more spotty buttons...
more twine ...
a yellow flower cabochon ...
and a vintage Santa bottle top that makes me smile :-).  Isn't he just so roly poly ... I bet he has a belly like a bowl full of jelly :-) :-) :-)

I guess you could say the colour combo here was a little unusual to chose, but I've already scrapped photos similar to this one using the blue/red combo so I thought I'd step out of the box with this one ... LOL.  I chose to highlight the red and yellow of the Christmas star my DD is holding :-).. Hope that explains it a bit!!

As always, thanks so much for visiting, I'll have more to share with you soon :-) :-)

Head on over to the Scrapz forum - there are daily challenges and monthly vouchers up for grabs - we'd love you to play along :-)
