Bird layout for Archiscraps


I have created this double pagespread for my Singapore travel album. We had fun feeding some birds mealy worms. The little birds would land on our hands as we held up the tiny container of treats and eat the worms.

I'm entering this in the October Archiscraps challenge. Here's the insp pic:

The twist is to add crackle of mosaic. I chose mosaic. I've created some mosaic in 3 places on my layouts using a decorative square punch and different papers. The photos themselves also have mosaic flooring.

Thanks for looking and happy creating.

Girls, gold and glitter

A terrific challenge at Scrapbookit this month. It's girls, gold and glitter.  Here is what I came up with.

My Chorus, A Cappella West, went on retreat at Swanleigh from Friday evening til Sunday lunch time. At the end of the weekend we all jumped on the risers and took a fun photo, all 75 of us. |I love the background paper I've used for this, just perfect. I'm in the middle. I wonder if you can spot me. I have a black top on, which is a big hint. Our Chorus colours are black and pink. I actually like the gold I've used with pink to create this page. I think it's much cheerier than using black would have been.

Kaisercraft colouring competition - Dreamcatcher

Hi there,
I've spent many hours over the last week colouring in this amazing image. It is from the Dreamcatcher design from their Free Spirit colouring book. I could win a set of their Kaisercolour books. How exciting. I really hope I do.

Here is my entry. Even my family liked it. The photo doesn't really do it justice to be honest.

Hello Sunshine card

The Unstampabelles October challenge is ready for you to take.  Here is the prize you can win.


The challenge is:

The Sun! It can be rising or setting!! In Australia we start daylight saving and we get a bit more sunlight every day!  The twist is Gold! Gold! Gold!

You can make whatever you want but it must include no stamping.

Here is the card I made.

I chose to use all golden hues. I punched a row with my Martha Stewart Large Daisy Fan and used the negative pieces to create a sun in the corner of my card. I've added 3 stickers and a gorgeous ribbon that had flowers and ladybirds. I love ladybirds. There is also a tiny one on my flower's leaf. Did you spot it?

Feeds The Birds for Scrap the Boys - Oct 2015

Wow, what a beautiful mood board at Scrap the boys this month. It's just gorgeous.

I've used the wood and aqua as my main inspiration.

I have had this really pretty background patterned paper by Fab Scraps for simply ages. It was great to have a chance to use it. I've added some die cuts and washi, amongst other things to my layout.
