During March Words or Whatever sent out some
chipboard to all that applied, to take part in 

I wish I took a photo of the gorgeous goodies
before I used them but didn't think at the time.
We received a scalloped frame, the word # Family
and a couple of hearts.

And here's what I came up with.

I removed the middle piece from the frame and 
embossed the outside which I have then used to frame
this tiny photo.

I can't believe I got a photo of myself and my 
7 brothers and sisters all in that little frame.
Too cool!

For the title and hearts I embossed with a red powder
and then again with gold.

 The gorgeous stamp I have used is another
Carabelle stamp that I got from Time to Create.

I gots new stamps!

I have just had the most awesome weekend.
I ventured off to my first Paperific where as one of
this years Scrapbooking Memories Masters, we were
invited to display some of our work.

OMG!  It was awesome and so so strange to 
see people looking and talking about my pages.
But I loved it!! 

I also had the amazing pleasure of spending time
with these awesome ladies,  some of my fellow Masters,
 Alz Callcott (one of my BFFs), Tracey Fowler,
 Michelle Logan and Fiona Paltridge.
Total awe of my company on the weekend.

There are links to all the ladies blogs at the top 
right, go check out their fabulousness.

So that brings me to this page and my new stamps.
Plus a 6 am morning, a need to get crafty and a want to
have a new page to add to the lot I was displaying.

Ohh and my fabulous new stash of Carabelle Studio 
stamps that I stumbled across at Time to Create.
And I stumbled upon them again a few days later
and then again last week, and probably 
will just happen to stubble across some more again
next week
...I have a problem

They're freakin awesome!!

We spied this kookaburra when we
were in Marysville.

I have used 2 different stamps on my background
here with black embossing powder.

Life is Good, D-lish Scraps

I am so excited to be part of the D-lish Scraps 
team for another term.

My first share for April includes a photo with
a fabulous group of ladies and was screaming for a
bit of pink and glitter.

I started my page by stamping the butterflies
down the middle and colouring with water colour
I grunged them up a little by adding splatters and 
masked some gorgeous glitter paste around them.

My photo has been layered with a Gold Stripe
Bag which I have folded and a Scrap FX Scribble
Also tucked amoung my photo cluster is little 
pieces of Hand Dyed Muslin.

The cluster on the left is of some washi tape,
Wood bead and die cuts and a Pick 'n' Place

The Life is Good banner, Snapshot die cut and the 
arrow and tag above all come from this
super awesome pack from Pinkfresh Studio.

If you click on the picture below it will take you
right to the page with all the other gorgeous things
from the Up in the Clouds collection.

See how cool a bit of torn up muslin looks.
It's fabulous for adding extra colour as well as texture.

My page has been finished off with a few resin
flowers and a pretty little Floral Cabochon.

I will be back tomorrow sharing a page featuring
 one of my nephews.

7 Dots Studio, Find some Colour

This is my entry for the March/April challenge at 7 Dots Studio.
The theme is Nature.

The photo I have chosen to use is from our recent
mini break to Marysville.  It's been 6 years since
the devastating Black Saturday fires and although
there is green all around the gorgeous town, the evidence
of the fires are still visible.

The paper I have used is from the 
7 Dots Studio Destination Unkown collection.

Typical with my style, I have added different
textures with stencils, tapes, beads and pearls.

Some crackle paste was added to the piece of chipboard.

I use Whipped Spackle with my stencil and colour
it with Lindy's Stamp Gang Magicals.

The Element Sticker that I have used as my title 
is a from the Thoughts Keeper Collection.

It says, try to find some colour in this black and white world.

I trimmed it down and added little sticker off cuts
to make it fit into the bookplate.

The cute little resin flowers and the washi tape 
are from my fave place, D-lish Scraps
