Happy little moment

Sharing a layout I did last year some time, this one was a lift of this one by Maggie Holmes I know this probably sounds very sad, but this was an amazing happy little moment for me. Lucy broke her wrist last year and was in cast for about 6 weeks, this meant no holding of her sweet little hand, and we are hand holders I mean we hold hands everywhere and I dread when she no longer wants to hold my hand. This was the night she had her cast removed and we sat in bed watching something together while holding hands, it was perfect. I remember her saying, Mum I sure missed this hand :)

A mini album

Hello ladies. I am sorry I have been AWOL for so long, in January I did so well updating my blog and then let it go once Feb hit!!! So I thought I would share with you a mini album I have made for a friends son as part of an FB pay it forward thing I took part in. I used the March kit from OHDEERME for this one with some on hand stash :)

 The kit

I tried to make it as simple as possible as my friend is not a scrap booker and also away in the UK so I can not help her with it. I have left spaces to journal and add her pictures in and on top of that I added in some more pre cut bits of card stock along with the rest of the kit so she can add to it if she wants. I am so excited for her to get this as her sweet boy has just turned 2 this month.









While I am here have you seen the sneak peak for next month, i LOVE it and can not wait for it to arrive on my door step :)

did I say LOVE!!!

Muah!

Back sharing another layout I made last week using stuff I had laying around, mainly my OHDEERME January kit, have I mentioned I love it before, cos I really do. I am also excited to hear my February kit is on its way to me now, I can not wait to get playing with that box of beauties.  Have you saw this sneak about the new bags the kits will come in? I am so excited about this, like REALLY excited, I mean look how cute they are.

How AMAZING does this kit look?

Oh yea, I was here to share a layout ha ha, I got carried away with Freckled Fawn as usual. This layout was another lift I worked on, this time it was a lift of this AMAZING layout by Marivi I mean what is not to love?

Here is my take on it, this was a super fast layout to put together, probably ten minutes in total, I love when that happens.

You and Me

Sharing another layout I did using bits from the January kit from OHDEERME. I really loved this little kit so much, it just adds the perfect touches to the papers etc that I already have on hand.

I really love all the cards in the Polka Party line from Dear Lizzy so I started my page using that card then just layered around it.


I have loved these banners from Crate Paper for ages, so I am happy to finally use one on a page, I then layered it with one of the puffy stickers from the kit.


How cute are these paper clips, I then thought I would layer the cute heart puffy sticker on there to just add more layers. On this sneak you can see 3 of my favourite elements from the kit, that is the paper clips, the puffy stickers and of course those cute veneer hears.  I also love to pull out things from past kits, I still love those glitter enamel dots from the first ever kit, though I only have a few dots left now :(


One of the things I love from this Maggie Holmes line is all the gold, just look at those gold elements. I finished my layout off with one of those cute hearts.


I have to say is one of the things I am loving about my camera is that I can get really good detailed close ups of my layouts, I have never been able to do that before.

LOVE

Sharing a layout I showed a sneak peak of yesterday, This one was a lift of this amazing layout from Leah over at Studio Calico.






I love love love how this one turned out, don't you just love that feeling, I just keep looking at it on my desk LOL.

This layout was made using lots of goodies in the January Freckled Fawn kit, I love it and have 2 more layouts to share ASAP :)


Check out my daughter, she is CRAZY she just has to be doing the splits or cart wheels, today it was the splits.

Pictures

So I actually took pictures on my camera and can I say i had FUN, no joke I felt like a photographer ha-ha i LOVED it so so much. I just wish I had known what I was doing though LOL, so far it was just set to Automatic, but that is fine as I can learn the rest as I go. Thought I would share a few pictures here that I took, remember these are my first go so probably nothing special but I enjoyed taking them and I love how much I can zoom up on subjects from such a distance.






I have a LOT to learn but it is going to be so much fun doing just that, and any advice would be amazing :)

Bits and Bobs

So today is the day I finally put the battery in my camera LOL please do not laugh but I honestly have just been scared, like terrified of using it. I am 100% determined to get the best out of it and want to really do my best but yep I am scared. I am just reading through the manual and setting time/date etc but really that is a lot as I rely on Gary for all of that stuff, so pat on the back for me indeed. It is raining today and Lucy has some friends coming over so figured today was the day.


Also today I finally got around to ordering my camera bag, now this was a HUGE decision as there are so so many to choose from. I decided to go for a bag that looks like a purse and not a camera bag, and while i love bright coloured bags I thought I would do neutral so that it goes with everything. I ended up going with an Epiphanie bag, the style is Ginger and colour is caramel, you can check them out HERE honestly I wanted one in every style but this one I kept going back too time and again. I really want it for our trip to Melbourne so I had to get it ASAP. What I love about this bag (and you can see more details on the link i added) is that I can hold my camera, lenses, IPad, kindle, purse etc so will be awesome for plane journeys etc where I do not want to carry heaps of stuff but keep it safe.

Next up I thought I would share a sneak of a layout I worked on the other day, it is a scrap lift of this AMAZING lift by Leah over at Studio Calico and I just had to lift it the second I saw it, I mean her work is amazing. Anyway I will get a full picture once I have my camera actually taking pictures LOL as at the moment my point and shoot is broke and I hate layout pictures with my phone, so it is a sneak for now.


This has also changed since I took this sneak picture as I added stitching, more veneer and also moved the sequins about. Don't you just LOVE the camera paper clip  and love heart veneer from the OHDEERME kit this month.

Next up I thought I would share a sneak of the February kit for OHDEERME as I just love the look of those veneer shapes so much and the colour scheme.


I was just saying on FB that one of the things I love about the kits is that they are so different each month but yet you can mix and match with previous kits and they all go so well together.

Just thought to add this awesome mood board that Life.Paper.Scrapbook shared on Facebook, I really love it and plan to work with it ASAP


Anyway back to my camera, wish me luck :)

A laugh is a smile that bursts.

A while back over at Studio Calico there was a challenge and we were asked to lift something in our favourite board, I just had to lift this amazing layout by Junojuno I mean what is not to love right!.

If you want to see more of her work then head on over HERE honestly she is amazing.

So I got out my cameo and just cut lots of hearts then backed them all with some scrap paper, I just love how it turned out.

I have zero mojo just now, maybe I should do some lifting and find it again, anyone with me?

Featured Card

I got an email from a lady in the last couple of weeks asking if she could feature this card on her blog, of course I said yes :)  I am in no way a card maker but it fit the theme she was having at New Year so it was an absolute thrill to be asked.

If you want to see it featured or see some of the other gold layouts/cards that are shown then please head on over to Paper Crafter's library

Thanks so much for the shout out, you made my day :)
