Halo Heaven

Hi everone :-) I hope you all have a lovely weekend planned with maybe a bit of time for some creating in there somewhere.

I had fun playing with lots of my gorgeous Handmade Halo goodies during the week & came up with this page. Just about everything on the page is Halo goodness & I don't think I could even pick a favourite because everything is just SO gorgeous. I've used the Bomb Tulles & Silky Secret flowers (these are absolutely beautiful!); some pretty pearl trim; an antique brass frame & bird; a resin cameo, bird & flowers; a beautiful chipboard page overlay & the Pretty Little Studio "Summer Breeze" collection :-)

and some close ups :-)

Corinne really does a superb job making these gorgeous flowers... they are SO well made & SO beautiful.

Thanks for dropping in for a look & thanks again for your very encouraging comments... I just love getting them :-)

Have a fabulous weekend!!

Sheree's sketch

I really liked this sketch that Sheree did for the Fetch A Sketch challenge last week...

so I had a play with it and came up with this...

I used one of Corinne's fabulous rope flowers which I thought was perfect for the beachy theme especially with that amazing anchor charm attached. I've also used a couple of gorgeous resin flowers... I just adore resin & I think I have a slight addiction LOL! Here's a close up of the Handmade Halo goodness for you :-)

Have a great day everyone!

Scrap It Blind

One of my favourite challenges over at Scrapz.Biz is the Scrap it Blind... the DT girls give you written instructions (but no pic hehe...) of a page & you create your page from your interpretation of those instructions :-) I got a chance to do the lovely Chloe's SIB challenge last week & this is what I came up with.

I'm quite liking the end result :-) I used a couple of goodies from my Handmade Halo stash too... a lovely applique flower which I've placed under a resin flower.

It's pretty hot here today... I hope the weather isn't too bad in your neck of the woods today. I've got to go to a P&C meeting now so better get moving.

Thanks for dropping by :-)

1st Birthday pages

Thank you so much for everyone's lovely, encouraging comments about my first DT position... they really made me smile & made me feel much more confident. I'm so lucky to have made such gorgeous scrappy friends xxoo

I've been trying to catch up on my older photos lately... I'm a tad behind; like 4 years behind! LOL!! I'm not really that worried about that fact but I've just set myself a goal to catch up a little :-)

So when a couple of the challenges posted over at Scrapz.Biz during the school holidays worked well with my youngest's 1st birthday photos I was very happy.

I've used Jillibean Soup papers for both as they will probably go side by side in Danan's album.

I went a little crazy with my embossing powders on this next one LOL!

I hope everyone had a lovely weekend. We had my sister & her 2 daughters up from Brisbane today for lunch... it was so nice & relaxed :-)

Take care xx
