My More Than Words September
MINI Challenge DT Reveal


Hi there peeps, thanks for calling by.
Today I have a card that I created for the September MINI challenge over at
 
The MINI challenge only runs for one week (last week every month),
& entry is via the More Than Words facebook page.
The prize is a $25 store voucher from Dusty Attic.

This months challenge word is to use word "ENJOY"
 on either a card, tag or ATC only.
 

I stamped the flowers & then coloured them with my
new set of Prima Watercolour crayons. Great fun.


As you can see I have stamped & heat embossed this little quote
that uses the word enjoy.

Well thats about it. Hope you will join in the fun this month
& play along with us.

Until next time.

A Card For My Granson's Birthday !!

Just a quickie post today. I just wanted to show you this birthday card
that I made for my baby grandsons first birthday on the weekend.
It was a monster themed party, hence I have gone with monsters.

They had a monster cake, he wore a monster T.Shirt & they even had
 some monster themed food. His Mummy & Daddy did such a good job.

Anyway I hope you like my card, & Henry too. :)




Till next time.

"It's A Boy Thing"
Part Two of My September DT Reveal For
2Crafty Chipboard


Hi lovelies, thanks for stopping by.
 Today I have part two of my September DT reveal for
I have stepped way way out of my comfort zone !!! I wanted to go crazy 
with lots of colour & lots of messy & I think I have achieved it !! 
I had all these photos of my gorgeous grandson Henry, & I just 
couldn't decide which to use, SO, I went mad & used them all.
Thats is something else I rarely do, but I think it works, well, I hope so anyway.
 
 2Crafty Chipboard Used...
It's A Boy Thing - title
Dotty Bits
Stars Multi Pack
ATC Tiny Hearts & Stars Multi Pack
Geotags Multi Pack
2016 Dates

First up I have used this 2Crafty "It's A Boy Thing - title".
 

Next up I have used some of their "Dotty Bits" circle pieces & simply
coloured them using a black ink pad. Too easy.

I also used a "2016 Date", I love these.


In this photo you can see the cluster I have created at the top of the 
photos using a large "Star" from the "Stars Multi Pack", as well as  some
 tiny stars from their "Tiny ATC Hearts & Stars" pack.
 

On the right side of this pic you can see I have also used some 
of the 2Crafty "Geotags". Perfect for when you just need a little something.


Well I hope you liked my layout today & I would love to hear your feedback
 on this one. Let me know what you think, but please, be kind. :)

Until next time

Hi there lovelies, thanks for stopping by. Today I have a layout to 
share with you that is part one of my September DT reveal for

"Ava's Frame" & it is so soft & delicate & I just love the way this
flourish hangs down from it. The perfect piece to frame my photos.
 

Another new release piece I have used is this gorgeous border I have used
across the top of my page. It is from the "Lacey Borders Set #1" & these
come three pieces in a pack, so I still have two left to use later.

are from 49 and Market. Beautiful aren't they.

My More Than Words
September DT Reveal
"Happiness Is This"


Hi there lovelies, thanks for calling by.
Today I have my Septemver DT reveal for
More Than Words challenge & as always
they have EIGHT PRIZES on offer again this month.

Here is this months challenge board.
Remembering our challenges are always a two part challenge.
Both a word & a creative challenge too.

Our creative challenge this month is a recipe.......
Now you can use choose to scrap about your favourite recipe
& use whatever things you like
OR
You can follow our "art recipe"
ie use one of each of the things listed #1 to #4
OR
Combine them & use both like I have done here on my layout.

BUT REMEMBER TO ALSO USE THE WORD
'DELIGHT'
I have chose to scrap about my scone recipe (I have even printed it out
& added to my layout) underneath the photo.


What could be more of a DELIGHT that some yummy scones with jam & cream !!



As I said earlier I have also used the "art recipe" from the challenge board too.
You don't have to use both parts, but I chose to. So I used 
a flower, a flair, some buttons, some flowers as well as a dash of beads 
& threw in lots of creativity.

I thought having my recipe documented & added in my scrapbook would be
 a lovely keepsake for future generations to look back on..


All the chipboard I have used is from 2Crafty Chipboard. My flowers
are from Prima, sprays from Lindy's Stamp Gang
 & the flair button is from Flutterby Designs.

Well thats all for today.
 I hope you find some time to play along with us over at
More Than Words.

Until next time.
