Freckled Fawn July kit

Sorry I have been AWOL but I do have a good excuse, I spent just short of 6 weeks travelling with my best girl. We visited Dubai, Scotland, London and Paris and spent a lot of time with family :)

I just wanted to share the amazing July kit from Freckled Fawn as it is so divine :)

Here is the picture of the whole kit




And a few close ups

I think this veneer is my favourite from this kit, though I always struggle to choose just one.



Is it not beautiful? what do you think your favourite is from the kit?
I have made 3 layouts with the kit which I will share over the next few days :)

Here is the first one I made, love how bright it is :)


Head on over to Freckled Fawn to check it all out, they also have some beautiful new washi tapes are totally edible, here is a beautiful bright camera one, can you say LOVE.

Heidi Swapp Down under

I am so excited to share that I had the chance to meet the AMAZING Heidi Swapp while Lucy and I were on our trip last month. It worked perfect as she was touring the same week we were there and one of her Spotlight stops was a 30 minute drive from our apartment. Of course we had to go.

We set of first thing and managed to get there in one piece and without getting lost, which is a huge bonus as I hate driving in other countries, but we got there in record time :)

We headed in about a half hour early and had a nosy about the store while we waited on Heidi arriving. I have to say the spotlight stores in Australia are amazing compared to the ones we have here in NZ.



Anyway Heidi arrived and I had a pleasant surprise that one of my amazing IG friends was there too, seriously do you ever feel you have known someone for years, well this is how I feel about gail, and she is just such a beautiful person both on the inside and out. I can not wait to meet up with her again.



Then I said a quick hello to Heidi quickly before we all sat down and then she made us all cry. Seriously we were all crying, she just oozes inspiration and the stories she had to share really tugged at the heart strings, Lucy still spoke about her stories days later and was really enjoying herself so much.



After she shared a couple of stories about how important our awesome hobby is, we then got down to business and got to work with some of her beautiful supplies. Lucy just loved that part too, she loves making everything. I will take a picture of that ASAP

Here is a picture of all of the ladies, it was a fabulous turn out indeed.




After everything was finished everyone hung around to get autographs and just meet with Heidi , Lucy was seriously dying to meet her. She is so cute and even brought her holiday album for Heidi to look through and was so proud of her self.



Some hugs.



Oh and that hoody I think has been stuck on Lucy since the day we bought it, she LOVES all things bunny and has it washed and dried and right back on LOL

Thanks Heidi for an awesome morning.

If you have not checked her blog out then you need to head over for a look, serious inspiration.

March goals update and April goals.

So I shared this post last month about my March goals and just wanted to update with how I got on with them all.

Here are my goals again.

1. February's project life - I do this monthly so I am not behind until it is April and I have not done it.
2. Try and finish off my album from the states last July, study really got in my way and I am trying to fix that.
3. Decide what kind of album to make for our trip to Australia this month
4. Most of all just ENJOY creating as that is the most important part.

I am happy to report back that I got 1, 3 and 4 out of them all completed. 



Also I completed my album from our trip to Australia. I worked away on that while we were there then all I had to do were print off the pictures and add them in. I will get that pictured and shared here ASAP but man it has been a week of rain here and so I have not pictured anything.

This is how Lucy plans her titles out, gotta love her passion for creating, it was her that decided we would work on our albums when away, she completed her own and it is pretty awesome. I will get pictures of that too and share here.




           -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

While I am here I want to share some April goals that I want to work on.

1. March Project Life (After March is complete I have decided to do it weekly again, it is much more fun doing one spread at a time I think)
2. Work on our America album (even if just a page here and there)
3. Do a minimum of 6 layouts
4. Picture my PL spreads so far for this year
5. Put away loose layouts that are sitting out from being photographed.
6. Get my blogging back into a routine again, I actually miss it.
7. Enjoy the creative process.

While I am here, have you seen the April kit from Freckled Fawn, seriously LOVE it as I always do, Lucy is even starting a sub with the May kit as she always tries to steal my stuff. I have no problem with her using my things, but when it comes to DT work she is not allowed near it. She did however go through almost 6 packs of the thickers in the picture above LOL.

You will see how I used the kit when I share my holiday album as I used it all through that.



Anyway Lucy and i are off on a road trip first thing to stay with a lovely friend of ours for a few days, I will see you when we get home.

While i am here, I would love to hear what you guys want to see in this blog, some times I fell like i am sitting here writing to myself LOL and would love input from you all.

Have an awesome weekend.

Love summer

I just noticed the other week when scheduling some blog posts that I did not share this one from January, I tell you what I am missing this weather so much already :(

This layout was just a heap of 6x6 papers layered across the page and sewed down, super easy to do, and right now that is all I am seeming to go for, but I like that.


We just arrived home from our trip to Australia, we had an amazing time but boy am i tired now LOL.

XOXO

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend with your family, it is so nice just getting down time I think, even if you do nothing but hang together.

Sharing another layout i made a few weeks ago using the My Paper Balloon Feb kit and some paper I had laying around.



Was a super easy layout, just some layers and some embellishments and that was it. Loved the little words though that came in the ephemera box, total cuteness.
