Mini Album - Jul's 50th

Hi All

Well I have been working every night since last Monday night and all weekend on this mini album for my girlfriends 50th birthday today.  She has all that money can buy so someone suggested this would be a good idea.  Mmmm never again!  This is the cover of the book made using Websters Papers, Prima flowers and butterfly, Pink Paislee Alpha's, Kaiser wooden frame, pearls,glimmermist and handmade rosettes.   I won't detail all that I have used.  I have left some pages for photo's to be added.

Thanks to Suzanne who made this beautiful embellishment for me at the crop to add.  Really appreciate all your advice too S. x
 Left this page to slip a photo of her children under the flap of the envelope.

 Will take a photo of Jul's today to go on this page and then the date tag can be slipped behind the photo.  She can write a few things on the tag about the day.  I have put a few blank tags in the album so she can write her own story.
Thanks for lasting until the end.    You should have seen my scrap room at the end of this project last night.  Aaagh!  Have a great week.

Sneak Peek!

Happy Sunday All,

Mum often tells me she checks my blog and there are no updates for a week so I thought I had better post something to show I have scrapped.  I went to a class on Friday night with the lovely and very talented Treesa Young at Made with Memories and this sneak peak is of a double layout we learnt.  I didn't get to finish it on the night as there were lots of different elements to complete so worked on it yesterday morning.  It is only a sneak peek as the layout can't be completed due to some embellishments being out of stock so I am waiting for them to be mailed to me for the finishing touches. 
We used the gorgeous Prima Butterfly Garden patterned papers and co-ordinations cardstock.  Some of the techniques were sanding, inking, dry brushing, patchworking, made rosette flowers and glimmer glazed them.  Thanks Treesa - LOVE your work and love being able to attend your classes.
Whilst on Prima Butterfly Garden here is the Mothers Day card I made for Mum.  Love these papers. 

Thanks for stopping by my blog.  Sorry there is not much to share.  I went out for lunch yesterday with friends that lasted all afternoon and today Mum and I are heading off to the footy.  Enjoy the rest of your weekend.  Take Care.

May Sketch at HBS

Hi there blog followers

Quick post this morning as I have a very busy weekend, so sadly not much time for scrapping.  Got errands to run this morning, I have to get my haircut, meetig friends for lunch and then off to Mum's for dinner as Liz and the kids are coming up.  Tomorrow is going to be 28 degrees so we are all getting together for Mothers Day with a picnic in the park.

Last night I created this layout for this months sketch challenge at Handmade by Suzanne.  These are some old photo's of our family together with our relatives visiting from Adelaide.  I can't remember when it was or where we were going so I will have to add that in when I find out.  I have left the panel on the bottom free for that info.  Have used Bo Bunny Gabrielle patterned papers, Kaisercraft stamp, Tim Holtz stamp, collections butterfly, BG mini alpha's and AC thickers.

Have attached the sketch so why not head over to Handmade by Suzanne and have a go.  It is a random draw and you could win a voucher to spend in store - a prize we all love!  Also while you are there check out the page Kim Jeffress did on massive events in the world that have occurred in her lifetime.  It is fabulous!

Happy Mothers Day to all you Mum's out there, hope you have a fantastic day with your families.

Until next time take care.

Don't Ask!

Hi there,
With not much on TV last night I created this layout using some more bits and pieces from the October Afternoon 5 & Dime range of papers and embellies.  The photo's are quite light to start with so not really that easy to tell what the story is about.  Liz, and Mitch have drawn on moustaches and Maddie has drawn on glasses.  Mmmm What they are up to - who knows!!   
Oh well need to get on to my Mothers Day Card.

See you soon.

5 & Dime Layout

Hi All

Hope you have all had a great weekend.  The weather in Perth has been so beautiful.  Let's hope it is the same next weekend for Mothers Day.  Went into Freo today for lunch with friends. 

Have found it hard to find inspiration this weekend so have only created the one layout.  This is a photo of Gavin and the kids taken on Fathers Day 2006 at Mum and Dad's house.  Have used October Afternoon 5 & Dime patterned papers and stickers, AC Thickers, Stitching, playing card and ink.
Until next time have a fantastic week.
