Wine time

Sharing another layout that I made last week, another simple one that came together easily. Loving all the gold in this kit so much, and used heaps on this layout today. The only issue I find with gold is that it does not photograph well, instead we tend to see reflections on the items.

Again this layout was using the September kit from citrus twist.

so excited as we have a night out tonight, I am even getting my hair and make up done for the event, I thought why not, I do not normally get my make up done so it will be a nice pampering. We went last Christmas with a group of friends, Gary's work put it on and we had a great night, they really have some talent. I will share pictures soon, though I plan on being hung over tomorrow LOL.

Well I have to be honest, I do not like this layout one bit, in fact I may take it apart and re do, or just reprint off the picture again.  

I think the reason is the woody paper, it may just be too dark for me or something, which is a shame as I actually love the paper. We will see, for now I will put in Lucy's album anyway and think about it later.

Again this is using the September kit from citrus Twist.

Love this

This layout here is to document my new hair, I am loving it so much, loving the dark, loving the length and just loving how it feels.

I loved this paper in the kit and had to use it, so so pretty.

Excuse the shiny face, I took my phone out to take a picture of Lucy and it was on selphy mode, so I thought oh well why not LOL. I was standing at the entrance to our garage and there must have been sun pouring it, but I loved the picture so here it is.

I made this using the September kit from Citrus Twist, seriously loving this kit.

I have other news today, I have just re subbed back to studio Calico for their Project life kit, they had a $1 deal on and I decided to snap it up. You get your 1st month kit for $1 plus shipping then full price for the next 5 months at $19.99. I have been trying to think how I could make PL work for me and this past few days I have decided that I will do it monthly and keep it easy. I am so excited to be doing it again, but definitely needed a kit to make it work for me. I always loved their PL kits so it just made sense.

(If you fancy subbing to any of there kits, please send me a message for a referral code and we will both get points towards add on kits)

The kit I will get first is this November kit, and while it has a couple Nov cards in there I will just use the back or cover the words. I just want to make sure I have the product on hand ready to go come Jan.

I also picked up this add on.

and will use this album to document the process.

I am so excited to be starting back this awesome project, but I definitely loved the break I had.

I think I plan on using my decorated tea trolley as a Project Life station, it will make it easier just having it all set up. I am also going to use it for my DD stuff, so they can share it. Luckily I bought an old side table last week to paint, so I will get on to that ASAP and then I can steal this for my scrap room.

Day in the life day 6

Sharing day 5 of my WITL album today, I had to re take the pictures then forgot to add it to the blog, sorry about that. I will have my last day up this week too and that is it done for another year.

Again this spread was made using a mix of the ali edwards kit and also lots of freckled Fawn goodies.

I am sharing today a layout I made last week for a challenge over on the Studio Calico message board. I set the challenge and asked the other ladies to lift a layout that they have in their inspiration board. 

I chose this beautiful layout that Paige Evans made , seriously this lady is a scrap booking machine, She can really do no wrong in my eyes.

Here is her layout, and you can find that in her gallery here if you wish to leave her some love, or check the rest of her work out.

Here is my scrap lift, I have to say I had a lot of fun putting this one together, and it is the perfect way to use a pack of frames up.
