On Top of the World

Hey everyone

I'm continuing to play with the Maggies Holmes Carousel collection from Crate Paper. 

On Top of the World


I adored this park paper with it's carousels and theme park look. It's a bit busy, so I have added lots of layers around my photo in less busy patterns to compensate and my title is cut from one of the patterned papers and on white so you can see it clearly!


Pop on over to the All About Scrapbooks blog to see more close-ups and what products I've used.

Frenchie!

Hi Everyone

This week I decided to play along with the Think Pink! challenge over at Scrap the Girls. As soon as I saw the mood board I knew which photos to scrap!

Frenchie


This is me at my nephews 21st this year, the theme was Musicals/Disney. I am not a pink wearing person but it was a nice change and I loved the wig!

I created my background with the new Dylusions paints, Peony Blush and Rose Quartz. I am in love with these colours!! I used the darker pink for the masking and some splatters. 



I've inked some 2Crafty Chipboard stars in black for some contrast . Next I've added some masking with a Flutterby designs mask, some washi and stamping, before finishing off with some pink and black embellishments. 

The mood board image:

Hello everyone

Today I am sharing my DT layout created for this months Scrap the Boys challenge. The challenge this month is to scrap a 5x7 or larger photo.

Timeless Beauty for Kraft Plus

Hello all

It's been a while since I have joined in with any challenges but a weekend retreat was the perfect opportunity to get lots of scrapping done. 

The challenge over at Kraft Plus this month is to use roses three ways - just perfect for this photo of my daughter dressed as Belle. 



I wanted to keep it simple so the focus was on the photo. I have used a Kaisercraft roses stencil, 2Crafty chipboard roses, rose patterned paper and a single red rose flower. I also doodled some roses on my border, so that's five not three!

Panda Love with Pandas and Popsicles

Hello

My daughter is totally in love with Pandas, so when Bella Blvd released this collection I knew I would have to have it!

A couple of layouts created with Bella Blvds Pandas and Popsicles for All About Scrapbooks.

Panda Love


This is where Lily fell in love with Pandas. It is Ocean Park in Hong Kong. Lots of Pandas to see here. This panda statue was outside one of the pavillions where some of the giant pandas were. 

Love the paper with all the little pandas on it, so cute!

Happy Days


Another holiday and a Panda sculpture in Singapore was a photo op! Love these bright colours popping again the black cardstock. 


Happy Memories



And to show the paper is not just for Pandas, I've used some of the plainer sides to create this layout of my son! 

Thanks for stopping by, click the titles to see more of these layouts over at the All About Scrapbooks blog.
