Crate Paper and a new Scrapz comp!!!

While we were recovering from our awesome Olympiad over at Scrapz, we set about showcasing some manufacturers.  First up was Crate PaperCrate Paper has been a new love for me, well, within the last year anyway.  I love love love it now!!

I really don't know what made me do it, but I had this urge to create a boy page from Crate's Pretty Party.  As the name suggests, Pretty Party is very girly, soft and pretty.  There is, however, some nice greens, and woodgrain paper.  Just perfect for a page of my little man :-)

Friends make everything better :-)

Oh yes, I'm still LOVING scrapping these photos :-) ... {by LaBelle Photographics}

I thought I would play along with the Scrap The Girls challenge this month - after all, it's a super easy one ... include stars on your page.

You'll see another of my favourite Lil Red Rocket flower :-) .... oh, and a cute little pig button too - just because it matched :-)

There are lots of stars - star buttons ... and I even found some star brads that I've had for ages!

The papers are from the Echo Park Sweet Day range.  I've had it for a while, but haven't had a chance to play until now!

That's all for now, have a great weekend, thanks for visiting!

Some Lil Red Rocket favourites

It was my post day on the LRR blog today!

Today, I'm sharing with you a couple of favourites from my Lil Red Rocket stash. I just LOVE the pink flower, I've been known to create a page around those flowers :-).

3 cousins {a page for my 52 week album}

Here's a close up of the flower - it really makes a statement, doesn't it :-). There are other styles of gorgeous flowers in the store too ... check them out!!!

You'll see some LRR twine here too - I add this to just about every page!! Love all the different colours! This one is aqua and white.

And here's a sweet little duck button. This comes from the medium Rabbit, cat, duck buttons set.

Thanks for visiting, have a great week!
