The Best

Sharing the 3rd and last layout I made using some bits from the July Freckled Fawn kit, this layout primarily was made using the June kit by Citrus Twist for their weekly sketch but I love that the FF kits can always be added to what you have to hand. 

Here is the sketch here that I used.

Here is my take on it.

These are a couple of pictures from our trip away, this is Lucy and my AMAZING Supergran, this is a name Gary gave her back when we were first dating and it stuck, everyone calls her that now.

I normally do a mini album of our trips, but as Lucy did a huge one I decided to just do an album full of layouts this time round. Also I make soooooooooooooooooooo many mini albums I feel like I had forgot how to just make layouts.

We are heading to Australia on Friday though and I have just signed up for this class over at Citrus Twist and I plan on using this class as a guideline for a mini album.

This next picture is a sneak from the owner of CT and I am in love, I have been wanting to do these hand cut titles and this may finally push me to actually do it.

Looks like my kind of album and only $10 for the class, seemed rude not to sign up for it LOL.

Sharing the 2nd layout I made with the July kit from Freckled Fawn, though the chip board and felt alpha is from last months I think. I really wanted to use the see through alphas, and think they are really cute. I love the sheet of words included in the kit, so easy to add to layouts and project life etc.

Anyway I am off out into the garden to spend some time weeding, sun is out so must be productive as it is a rarity in this cold weather to want to be outside.

Hope you all enjoy your Sunday.

Have an awesome weekend

Over in New Zealand we have finished up for 2 weeks for our winter break, and believe me when I say it is winter, over the cold mornings for sure.

We had a quiet night in last night watching a movie together and just hanging out, was nice and relaxing and just fun. Love our movie nights even though we end up watching a lot of the same movies over and over ha ha. last nights movie of choice was Camp Rock, a huge favourite in this house as we love Demi Levato.

This morning we had a lazy morning followed by a last minute lunch at our local cafe, when I say last minute I mean exactly that. We were headed to the supermarket to buy stuff for dinner tonight and as we parked the car we figured lets go have lunch, it was delish :)

This evening Lucy has her BFF around for a sleep over so I am playing in my scrap room, while watching the Property Brothers and enjoying a glass of wine.

Have a great weekend every one :)

Using the June Citrus Twist kit for this, totally love their kits a lot, the cute little ampersand is from a past Freckled Fawn kit, super cute.

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.
