two of my boy

This first page is using Bo Bunny grease monkey papers and stickers, its a layout for Chandon Craft. The pics of my baby 10 years ago. I've wanted to scrap this photo for ages but didn't quite know how I wanted to do it. It's one of my fave pics of him. Noodle is my nickname for him, he doesn't really like it tho now that he's getting older.
This next one I've used another fave pic of mine with Pink Paislee papers. A few other favourite things on the page are the Maya Road sheer owl, clock and journal spots.
Have been busy today trying to get some photos organised for my layouts I've been asked to do for Scrapbook Creations. Was getting a bit worried the last week, wondering what to do. It's all sorted in my head now, so now all I have to do is get the ideas to paper.
Hope everyone's having a relaxing long weekend....I've got tomorrow off too and plan to spend most of the day in my craft room. Enjoy!!

Ever start a page

and it just doesn't look how you thought it would in your head. That's what happened with this layout. Not 100% happy with the 'bug off mum' one and I can't quite work out what it is I'm not happy about.
Very cute papers by My Little Shoebox, and I couldn't wait to get stuck into them. Both of the pages I've done here I started last Friday night at the Kaisercraft fundraiser for the Vic. fires. The crops there are always a great night and always a great cause.

This page I love though. My gorgeous niece and my dad at my wedding 2 years ago (....OMG how fast has that time gone!!!). I did this page on some bazzill swiss dots, not surprising that I love this cardstock cause my swiss dots embossing folder gets a bigger workout in my cuttlebug than anything else. I also used a Glitz (?) grid rub on that I had in my stash from when I did my masters entry, bazzill edges, my little shoe box die cuts, heidi swapp damask sticker and lots of eyelets. See the cute little branch, birds and owls? They're all Maya Road, chipboard, rub ons and sheers. I love them. So cute!!

so many beautiful papers.

There's so many gorgeous ranges out at the moment it's hard to pick a favourite. These next 2 pages I've done for Chandon Craft with some of the beautiful new papers.
This first one is another page using MME Bella Bella. I've used a few Heidi Swapp embellies on this one, including the dots mask and some gorgeous crystal chandelier drops. I also used one of the Heidi butterfly overlays. I cut this out around the printed shape and have stuck it down in the middle. The tips of the wing I bent up a bit before I stuck them to give a 3d look. The butterflies on the paper are also 3d. I've cut around the wings of these and bent them up to look like they're sitting up on the page. There's also a Tim Holtz tag, autumn leaves stickers, collections bird, distress inks, My Little Shoebox transparent owl and a Scrap FX chipboard gate.

This page is done with the beautiful Autumn Leaves Urban Junque papers. I've used pencils to colour some of the flowers, leaves and swirls. I've also used bazzill swiss dots (how cool is this cardstock), AL Urban Junque stickers, prima flowers and distress inks. I love how feminine these papers are.

Had planned on scrapping this afternoon but decided I might update the look of my blog. Started playing with Photoshop and 4 hours later..... oh well maybe tonight :)
