Hi there bloggers. Thanks for calling by. Today I wanted to share my
canvas that was published in "Scrapbooking Memories" magazine

made  it earlier this year.
All these pics are of me over a fifteen year period,

My 2 Crafty Chipboard
October Design Team Reveal
Part Two

Hi there, thanks for calling by. Today I have part two of my
October DT reveal for 2 Crafty Chipboard.
Lots of background treatments, some fussy cutting &
lots of gorgeous 2 Crafty chipboard.

Here you can see I have used a "Marisa's Corner" to frame my photo.

Next I have used a "Sybills Nameplate" & I have put one of
their mini words, "Memories" on it  for my title.

Lastly I have used a "Tahnya's 6" Border" underneath my photo.
2 Crafty make sooooo many beautiful chipboard designs, we really
are spoilt for choice.

Well thats all from me today.
Thanks for calling by & for any comments you leave,
I do appreciate it.
Until next time.

Woo Hoo I made the Watch List at CSI
CSI Case File #92
"Magical Memories"

Wooo Hooo thanks CSI for putting my layout on the "Watch List".

Hi there, thanks for calling by. Today I have my layout for the current challenge
#92 over at CSI. Just got this finished in the nick of time. Made the deadline
by just hours !!!!! Anyway, I do love this soft & pretty colour pallette.
I thought this photo of my God Daughters little girl, Siena, was perfect.
I have scrapped it before but I wasn't completely happy with it so I
thought I would try my hand at it again!!!!!

For my "Evidence" I have used five things,
1.Pearls,  2.Book pages(my background paper),  
3. Hearts,  4.ribbon,  5. Lace.

For my "Testimony" I have written this little story about how they
were having a photo shoot & she had had enough. 
The tears were flowing, as you can see by her red eyes
 in the pic, but thankfully the photographer kept right on
clicking his camera & this "magic memory" was snapped.
I think this is a priceless moment of childhood, captured.

I have placed my little story  in between my layers, 
tucked in behind the photo.

I have used lots of fabulous 2 Crafty chipboard & lots
 of gorgeous Green Tara flowers, lace & trims.

Until next time.

My 2 Crafty Chipboard
October Design Team Reveal
Part One
"Cherish the Moments"

Hi there thanks for calling by.
Today I have part one of my October DT  reveal for 2 Crafty chipboard.
Naturally it has lots of their gorgeous
chipboard on it, including ....

"Cherish the Moments" Title
"Chicken Wire Panel"
"Fifi's Flourish"
"Multi pack of Butterflies"

I just adore this "Fifi's Flourish".

Here you can see I have cut the "Cherish" word apart from the
rest of the title as I wanted to stick it onto my photo.

I created this background using lots of stamping, Gelatos & just
 plain white cardstock. I just love what you can do with them.

Lots of great Green Tara washi tapes here too.

Some fab 2 Crafty "chicken wire" which I have cut up &
poked in here & there.

 Finished off with a few of their "Butterflies" which come in a
 multi pack of all different sizes.
Well thats all for today, I'll be back again with part two.
I do hope you will call again.
Until then.

My September Green Tara Design Team Reveal
Part Two
"Beautiful Girl"

Hello there, thanks for calling by.
Today I have part two of my current design team reveal
I have been playing with my Dylusion sprays again. I just love
the way they are sooooo bright & that is what set the scene
for this layout.

   I have used two of the NEW Green Tara
"Washi Tapes" on both the top & bottom of my page.

I have also sewn on some Green Tara
 "Double Sided Reversible Spot Ribbon" in pink/orange.
I love this ribbon & it is available in some great colour combos too.

 While I had my Dylusion sprays out creating my background I
decided to spray some of my Green Tara flowers to match.
I was really happy how these turned out.
So bold & bright.

More Green Tara flowers & Roses that I have sprayed.

All of the fabulous chipboard pieces I have used on this 
layout are from 2 Crafty chipboard.

Lastly you can see the other Green Tara Washi Tape that I
have used. They really do have a huge range of 
Washi to choose from.

Until next time.
