KIU - November Challenge

Hi everyone

Last day of the month and I am sneaking in a challenge entry! Kraft It Up's challenge this month is to use one of these trend pieces: flairs, wood veneer or enamel dots. I love all three products and have used all three on this layout of my kids with their younger cousins who visited in the September school holidays. Attempting to get a good photo of the four of them was a bit challenging!

I've used flair buttons from Simple Stories, some MME enamel dots and Prima wood veneers for the title, and some wood veneer stars by sodalicious. 

Thanks for visiting!

More Wedding Pictures

 Hey everyone

I have another layout to share from the wedding we attended in Sweden, this one is of my beautiful kids together. It was so lovely seeing them all dressed up and being able to be a special part of the wedding.

Loving the chalkboard background and embellishments on this, just the right amount of black but not too black to complement Zane's suit. 

That's all for today
Till next time

Family Snaps!

HI there

Back again with another share, technically holiday photos but featuring us this time! So many AMAZING things to see in Europe but you can't go on holidays without getting some family snaps.

First up is one of me and the kids that mum took of us in the Tiergarten in Berlin. We only had one full day in Berlin, would love to go back and explore it further.


The next one is both the kids chilling out in the public gardens we found in Venice. Such a nice shady spot to have a rest from all that walking, it was so hot in beautiful Italy!

Thanks for stopping by,

Boyz Rock


Today I am sharing a non holiday layout! It is a layout of Zane when he did dancing for a couple of terms last year and danced in the end of year concert. Neither of mine are dancing this year, and I doubt Zane will do it again but all the recent end of year dance concerts inspired me to get scrapping!!

I dug through the stash a bit for this one! That Boyz title I have had for so long! Glad to finally be able to use it! And a Z button from smiggle I think? I've combined them with some newer papers, Glitz Designs Raven and Carta Bella Well Played.

I've played around with my dylusions again, really happy with how they turned out on this. 

I have a few layouts to share, back soon!

Inspired Blueprints Sketch #110

Hello all

Back today with the latest Inspired Blueprints sketch! Sketch 110 went live this morning, and is a super cute one. I've scrapped a photo of Zane & I taken at his family birthday party earlier this month. 

I had some fun trying out some Project Life cards for this one. I am planning to do a PL style album for the bulk of my travel photos and if that goes well, maybe doing a PL album next year too. 

Here is Sketch #110:

As you can see, I have changed it up a little bit by dissecting the squares and spreading them out, but tying the whole page together with the washi tape and the title. There are lots of ways you can interpret this sketch, be sure to pop over and check out all the inspiration from the rest of the DT here

All About Scrapbooks Class - Relaxing

Hello all

Yesterday was monthly crop day at All About Scrapbooks and this month, I taught a shaker page layout. Lots of fun, love the sequins and wood veneers and a classic colour combo of Yellow, Blue & Grey.

This photo of the kids was taken in Sweden, alongside the lake at Saltsjobadan. (I'm going to add that bit to below the title, but for the purposes of the class, left it as is.) Another one to add to my holiday album.

I also managed a couple of layouts while at crop, which I will pop up here as soon as the rainy weather clears and I can get some decent photos. 

Thanks for looking
