I Am by Simple Stories

Hello everyone

Still catching up and showing my last pages for March DT work over at All About Scrapbooks for the last two weeks using the delightful I Am Collection from Simple Stories. Gorgeous range for scrapping ourselves. 

My first page is I am so Lucky

Love this photo of me and my beautiful kids taken in February at Lilys birthday partyy, I feel so lucky to have both of them in my life.

My second layout is a quick selfie of me and I have used the fabulous words on the I Am sticker sheet to journal about myself:

I Am

Little Party - Scrap the Girls April Challenge

Hello everyone

This month over at Scrap the Girls we have a gorgeous mood board to play along with. I love the rich, vibrant colours in this board, and this inspired me to get out my favourite mists - Dylusions to create a rich vibrant background.

Little Party (Dance Concert)

The title was inspired by the song played for the jazz dance Lily performed at her end of year concert. The colours of the mood board were perfectly matched to this bright costume!!

The mood board:

There is still time to play along this month, and the rules have changed so you can enter more than one challenge site!! Check out the reveal here at Scrap the Girls.

Kaisercraft On Stage for All About Scrapbooks


Back again to share the last of my layouts created for All About Scrapbooks using Kaisercraft's On Stage Collection. I was super excited about this collection, firstly it would be perfect for some photos of Lily playing piano but secondly these colours were just what I wanted to create some Halloween layouts!

First up, I (heart) Music

This range is super cute, and perfect for this music themed layout. The music sheet paper was a fave, and I love the dramatic red, white and black combination.

My second share is this Halloween layout. I've been waiting for the right paper range to get this photo scrapped!


I created a blood red background for this layout, before adding my ripped and torn paper layers, interspersed with some shredded gauze to create this spooky page. Ok, she's not that scary but I do love her pose! And Halloween is always lots of fun when you have kids who love dressing up!!

You can see more of these two layouts over at the All About Scrapbooks blog.

Till next time, thanks for visiting!

Kaisercraft Furry Friends & All that Glitters for All About Scrapbooks

Hello everyone

Today I am sharing my March layouts for All About Scrapbooks. For last month I got to play with all 3 of Kaisercrafts new releases. I'm sharing layouts with two of those today -  Furry Friends & All That Glitters!

First up, using Furry Friends - PhotoBomb!

I LOVE this photo!! It was such a funny moment, I was trying to get a photo of Zane and wanted him to be very serious as I was trying for a certain look! Of course puppy Harry decided that someone sitting at his level was there to play so he just jumped right in with a big kiss, and I was clicking the camera at the right time.

The doggy theme of the Furry Friends papers was just perfect to capture this moment and the 2Crafty Chipboard title Photo Bomb summed up the moment! Close-ups of this layout can be found here.

My next layout was created using the All That Glitters range: Dream

My baby girl fast asleep, don't they always look so sweet and peaceful. This is such a pretty range, love the butterflies and the pops of gold.
You can check out close-ups and more details of this layout here.
Thanks for stopping by, I'll be back with the other March range, On Stage, tomorrow.

Scrap the Girls March - My Sister, My Friend

Hello everyone

Long time no post yet again, but I have been very unwell for a about a month now so blogging has had to take a back seat as have a LOT of things. I feel like I am on the improve though so best start playing catch up and try to get back to regular posting!

Today I am sharing my layout for last months challenge over at Scrap the Girls. It was based on a sketch by Rikki, which you can check out here:

This is my take on it, My Sister, My Friend:

Love this photo, taken last Christmas when my sister was visiting. It was nice to have her and her family down, it sucks that she lives interstate.

I've created this page with some gorgeous Websters Pages papers, I love the pink timber background!! Lots of Kaisercraft roses and my favourite 2Crafty Chipboard! All these products can be found at All About Scrapbooks.
