Unwelcome Guest - WW1 November Challenge

Hi everyone

Back with another challenge entry today. This time I have played along with White with One. There November challenge is White + Green + Chevron. 

This water dragon was in our backyard the other day, and while I am not far from the bush, we don't live right near it nor are we near any water. Gee it was quick, I am not a fan of reptiles but the kids thought it was cute. Since this one came and went we have found we also have a small blue tongue in the backyard - I like him better, he isn't so fast!!

I took some photos of him, so I thought I may as well scrap him! My chevron is the white background paper with the chevron pattern. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Cousins - KIU November Challenge

Hello everyone

I decided to play along with KIU challenge this month, the challenge is to create a layout on Kraft that is minimalist or uses white space. 

I took this photo using instagram of my neice and nephews with my two on a day trip we had to Manly. Pity my eldest niece wasn't there, but I love this photo of my elder nephew who is 15 looking after all the little ones (who are 3,4,5 & 6! in this photo). I love having the phone on my camera to capture moments like this. 

Here is my layout, pretty happy with how it turned out, even if it is hard not to try and add something else!! I also tried to keep away from mists but did use a bit of stamping...

Thanks for visiting!

Do or Die Final Layouts

Just popping in with my last few layouts for the Do or Die challenge that was on over at a few weeks ago. I managed to make it to the end, but didn't get my layout in on the final magic number to win.

There were 8 rounds all up, my favourite layout I have been lucky enough to have picked up for publication so here are the last 4:

Finishing off some photos from 2011 Halloween with this layout, love the spider web flocked transparency. They are both just Frightfully Adorable.

Lily last summer with the water pistol, she looks dangerous haha!! Ready, Aim, Fire!

Lily in her beautiful dance costume for Fairy Ballet last year, they performed Swan Lake, they were so very cute. Unfortunately she isn't doing ballet this year, just jazz and tap (which at this concert time of the year is a good thing).

And another Halloween one, just got them scrapped in time before this one came around! Lily HAD to be an Angel and refused to be anything else, especially nothing scary which is what I based my title You Must be an Angel on.  (This year she was much scarier!!)

Thanks for stopping by

2Crafty November

Hello everyone

Been a very slack blogger, have a heap of layouts to share but just haven't gotten around to the blogging part!! Today I am sharing my latest 2Crafty layouts, which you may have already seen on the 2Crafty Blog.

My first share today is a layout titled Life's Good, of my gorgeous little boy who will be 7 this week! I have lots of 2Crafty chipboard on this page without making it too busy. The products I've used are the Clock Face FramesLife's Good title, Cute Cogs, Fencing Wire Panel, ATC Clock Faces and a name plate from the Corners and Name Plate set. 

My next share is Ferris Wheel. I just love this Ferris Wheel Chipboard piece, it's so fun and perfect for our pics of us all on the Ferris Wheel in Hong Kong.

Close-ups and descriptions of how I have altered the chipboard can be seen on the 2Crafty blog!!
