An easy day?????

It was our show holiday today so it should have been a relaxing day but the kidlets decided it was a good day to fight between themselves most of the day *sigh*.  I was going to scrap but it didn't happen... hopefully tonight :-)

So I thought I'd share a couple of pages this evening  :-)

When I got this cute fimo dinosaur made by the lovely Corinne (Handmade Halo) I knew I had to make it the focus of my page. I absolutely love these photos of my DS1 & I melt every time I look at them so they were perfect to use with my gorgeous little dinosuar :-)

I've also used some cute dinosaur pebbledashers that you can get here...
And a gorgeous Super Star by Charm.

This next page I did for Sheree's sketch challenge at I used a lovely Handmade Halo charm & some yummy Purple Pumpkin embellies. These are photos of my DD's very first cross country run when she was a very little preppie... so cute!!!

I hope everyone that has kidlets starting holidays tomorrow have a great, relaxing couple of weeks. For those that have to wait a little longer I'm sending you some strength to get through the last bit of term :-)

Take care my lovely scrappy friends! xx

Some weekend shares :-)

Hi everyone! How's your weekend going? I hope you've had a chance to have some fun & be creative. I've been lucky enough to have some scrapping time this weekend but I've also been doing a fair bit of school P&C work as well... hmmmmm think I may have forgotten about the housework LOL!

I did this page for a Scrap it Blind challenge set by Sheree over at this month. I've used a fabulous Rainbow splendour star paperclip (such a great centre piece & perfect for those boy pages!) & a couple of mini pinwheels. I just love the mini pinwheels... so versatile & they add the perfect little touch to a page :-)

And those awesomely cute fabric buttons are from my Handmade Halo stash :-)

I had a chance to play with the gorgeous new "One Moment in Time" Scrap Cake papers yesterday. These papers are so pretty & such wonderful quality! Pop over to Handmade Halo & have a look at them. I teamed the new papers with some gorgeous new resin, pebbledashers, lace & Corinne's handmade flowers... all so wonderful to work with. Check out the amazing resin heart!! They will be available at HH soon :-)

I'm going to enter this page in a pleating challenge at C'est Magnifique as well. Can you see my pleating??... it's under the title :-)

 I have a few more things to share but I won't bombard you all at once LOL!
Take care everyone & thanks for popping in & for your fabulous comments!!

The secret is out :-)

Did you happen to see this? WhooHoo!! I'm so excited to be working with Chloe at Rainbow Splendour :-) We are going to have fun!!!

I just love RBS goodies & I had lots of fun last weekend making these pages. This first one is based on the March sketch from over at Handmade by Suzanne. I've used one of the very versatile doilies (cut into 2 pieces); a gorgeous flower; the cutest mushroom; those adorable little flags & a couple of the mini pinwheels. The mini pinwheels are fabulous to add that lovely bit of detail to your page so I have lots of them in my stash LOL! :-)

I just love the sweetheart trees & gates! Aren't they gorgeous?  I decided to do some hand sewing on this page too which I haven't done in a while... always seem to machine sew lately. There is also a lovely doily in pink on this page... I have quite a few doilies in different colours in my RBS stash too :-)

I'll have some more pages to show you soon. Thanks for popping by & sharing my exciting news. A big thank you for all the lovely comments I've received too... I just love reading them :-)

Secret Award??

No... actually a secret & an award!!

I was delighted when a very special lady (who is an amazingly talented scrapper by the way) gave me this award...

Thank you so much Min :-)  I was so excited & grateful to receive this award from you & it totally made my day xxoo

So the idea behind the award is to spread the love, interest and knowledge from one small blog ( under 200 followers ) to other small blogs.

To accept the award you must;

1. Link back to the person who gave it to you & thank them.

2.Post the award to your blog.

3. Give the award to 5 people ( blogs less than 200 followers ) that you enjoy visiting and who inspire you.

4. Leave a comment for these people to let them know how much you appreciate them.

I could easily give out lots more than 5 of these lovely awards because every blog that I visit inspires me & I enjoy my blogland travels... so thank you everyone!

I'd like to give my 5 awards to these awesome ladies :-)
Thanks so much for sharing your gorgeous work girls! I love popping by your blogs :-)

So now for the Secret part...
Well... I can't tell you yet. It's a secret hehe...
You'll now soon though I promise :-)

C'est Magnifique sketch challenge

I had a chance to play along with this month's sketch challenge at C'est Magnifique... there's a gorgeous sketch by Nadia so who could resist :-) Check out the C'est Magnifique blog here for details.

Here's the sketch
 And my page

Photo by the lovely & talented Linley at LaBelle Photographics.

Our Clown

I've been meaning to get this page up for ages but life gets a tad busy at times!!! You all know exactly what that's like I'm sure :-)

I've used some Pretty Little Studio "Clowning Around" papers & embellishments on this one... I just LOVE the clowns in this range!! I've also used a resin frame with a lovely owl charm, a cute printed transparency, that adorable bee button & also the chippie film strip which I altered with some glimmer mist & paint. All lovelies from my Handmade Halo stash. There is always gorgeous new things going into the store too so check in regularly or like Handmade Halo's Facebook page to see (or should I say drool over) all the new releases :-)

Have a great day everyone & take care

How could...

the Easter Bunny resist these two faces????  I just love this photo of my older two together after they had excitedly collected all the eggs that had fallen out of the Eater Bunny's pouch LOL!!

I used one of the 12" doilies from Handmade Halo which are so yummy!! I was going to use mist or paint on it but then I really liked the freshness of the white against my pink background paper so decided to leave it as is :-)

I've also used another silky secrets flower (I'm in love with these!); some fabric stickers; buttons & that cute little chippie bird. There's also the gorgeous Lime Tree Creations trim & flower created by Becci for Halo (Becci is an amazing crocheter!).  Lots of gorgeous Handmade Halo products :-)

And I thought that super sweet Rainbow Splendour bow matched just perfectly :-)

Here's a close-up of some Halo goodness :-)

I have another page to share so I'll be back soon with that one :-) 
Take care everyone.
