I had a lot of fun doing this layout and using all the Kaisercraft
embellishments. There were so many to use and they went so 
well with these photo's of Riley and his car. 

The hall way was his race track and he zipped up and down it as
fast as his little legs would take him. Look out anyone that may 
have got in his way.

My inspiration for this layout was the sketch at GrandDiva's


Whooo's The Lil' Artist

I had so much trouble getting these photo's and in the end I just
give up and took them the way Riley wanted. He had done this 
life size painting of himself at Kinder. I had pinned it to the door.
I asked that he stand beside it so I could take some photo's and he
was so eager. The only problem I had was he insisted on standing 
in front of it.

I tried to hard to explain that I could only see the head and the
body was missing. His answer was that it didn't matter because it 
looked just like him, cause it was him. I decided to let him have 
his way. You will just have to trust him that the body he painted
looks just like him, because it is. 'Cute head though.'

I have place this layout in the challenge at About A Boy

This layout has been done with Kasiercraft Products.

To Our Son With Love.... Card

I'm starting to love my New Years Resolution. It is 
working so well doing my cards and a few of my LO. 
This is one I'm able to keep. LOL.

I have made this card for the challenge at Itsy Bitsy.
It is a color challenge and I found just the right colors 
in my scrap bag for it. The green and the light blue.
All I can tell you about the papers is that they are from
my ever loved scrap bag and so was the card stock I used
for the card. The stamp is from the beautiful range from
La-La-Land. I have colored it with Stampin`Up Chalks.

Best Friends Forever - Card

This is the latest card I have made for the challenge
at Scrapbookit. There is time for this challenge still
if you want to have a go just pop over to

The other challenge I have placed it into is over at 
For my bingo line I picked - Flowers, Patterned Paper
and Stamping

I normally use my chalks for the coloring but this time 
decided to have a go with my new Copics. I dont have that
many yet, but I'm working on them slowly. For the few I have
I'm happy with the result. The stamp is La-la-land Crafts - 
Marci. I love their stamps. The flower and leaves are from
Cre8tive. On the flower I used a little Smooch Pearl Accent
Ink. The patterned papers are no other than Kaisercraft - Gypsy 
Sisters and the letters and rose are also Kaisercraft from their
 Magnolia Grove Sticker Sheet. The butterfly is from Couture
Creations Treasures.

Vacation - Recipe Challenge

Hi everyone. I have been getting a little more work done than normal
the last couple of weeks. This is my latest LO for the Recipe Challenge
over at Scrapbookit. It was so much fun doing it. There is still some 
time left for those who want to have a go. 

For this challenge I had to use the following recipe - 
  1. Word Title
2.  Card Stock
 3.  Patterned Paper
 4.  Embellishments
 5.  Photo's.

I have used the following products to create this LO of a vacation 
we had to the Great Ocean Road. We had an awesome time.

Card stock from Authentique, and my 3 patterned papers were from 
Authentique, kaisercraft- Just Believe and Kaisercrft -Pack Your Bags.
Heather Schwartz - Little Minis Stickers ( I placed these on card stock 
and cut out to make the lighthouse/boat embellishment). The butterfly
embellishment was from the Couture Creations Treasures - Adalyn
Collection Mocha. The third embellishment I used was the tag I made.
For this I used Kaisercraft 75c collection tag, a rub-on quote and another 
of the stickers.

For my last but not least 4th embellishment I have used a chipboard
from Twiddleybitz ornate circle frame and colored it with my Copic
pen E33 Sand and 0 Blender pen. I thought the photo of the boys 
great in it. I used my Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Frayed Burlap around 
the edges of my papers and Black Slick Writer around my pics.

A Special Moment

This photo is of my beautiful mother. She was 17 when it was
taken at my Grandfathers home. He had a wonderful garden and
Mum looked a picture in it. 

I have entered this LO in the photo challenge with Narelle at 
and also in the word challenge at

I have used quite a mix of things to complete this LO and it was
a lot of fun bringing them all together then sitting back and
looking at the end result. 

The flowers I have used are Bo Bunny Blooms - Harvest Orange,
Natural Earth, Clover and Harvest Orange Daisy.  They are very
beautiful flowers. I used florist wirewhich I twisted around a thin 
pencil and placed it coming out from behind the flowers. The vine
is from Scrap FX.

The stunning lamp post is from Twiddleybitz and I colored it with
a green Copic (YG67) pen. I then used a Copic blender pen to give 
it a little of an aged look. Each of the chipees on the layout I colored
in the same way. I used a white card stock and sprayed it with a Kazaz
black Smooch Spritz.

I have placed this layout in the photo challenge with Narelle at 
The other challenge is a word challenge at Bird Is A Word

In this photo you get to see more of the beautiful Bo Bunny flowers 
and also Bo Bunny Lace - Natural Earth. The hanging sign is from 
no other than Dusty Attic, which I have placed a little bit of journal
work on it and the rest is hidden journal on the back. The skeleton 
leaves I have used are from Cre8tive. The patterned papers are from
Kaiser Craft - 75 cents. 

Check out this photo. Bo Bunny Flowers and the grey  flower with
the lovely trinkets coming from it is from Prima. This is a better pic
of the lace from Bo Bunny, lovely all the way. 

This is my final photo of this LO. I have taken this one so as you
can see the lamp post better. I have wrapped a Prima Vine Flower 
around it.The other things in the photo's I have used are, Kaiser Craft 
Floral Delight letter and also their Timeless/Treasures Rub Ons. The
rub ons are the gorgeous birds are the rub ons, which I rubbed onto
white card stock and cut out.

Warm Wishes

I just cant help myself today with the scrap bag and

decide which card I'm going to give to my father.

Love To Create Challenge Blog

I have made this card Keeping with my New Years resolution.
Yes......Using my scrap bag. The beautiful 3D car I have placed

Where Did The Time Go

  This photo was found with a group of family photo's on the passing
 of my grandfather some time ago. Sadly it is one that was not wrote on.
 My father believes she is a family member but we are not sure who. 
None the less she is a beautiful child. 

I have done this LO for the Challenge at Njoyfullcrafts and it required
I use white and one - yellow. I think Narelle likes to take me out of my
comfort zone. I always struggle with yellow. I must say though like the
last time she did it too me I'm more than happy with the out come. If you
get a chance pop on over and join in her challenges. They are a lot of fun.

I must say Manor House flowers and Prima products are just great
to work with. They are just beautiful. The title is a chip board from
R W Laser cuts and I have inked it with Archival Pigment Ink -
Moonlight White.

The Lilly's and fence are from Scraptopia and I have inked the fence
with Stampin Up ink. The butterfly die is a Spellbinders and comes
with two complete butterflies. You get the back and the beautiful lace 
to place over it. The Flutter vine is from Memory Box and I just added
a little ink to the ends.

I just love this beautiful Chip board. I think the striped paper from
the Stampin Up's Big Top Patterned papers went so well with the 
collar and the young girls sailor outfit. I love using the paper lace 
doyleys and have placed one behind the photo.

I cant help myself with pearls. The minute the picture is old I
have my mind thinking if it can have pearls on it. The scroll I 
have done my journal writing on is a Quick Kutz parchment 
scroll and again I have used Stampin Up ink - Crumb Cake.
                                   The small flowers are from Crafters Paper Flower Range.

I have done this layout for the next challenge in my DT position 
It is Challenge #28 All Boy/Masculine 
And yes it is hosted by none other than me. 

I just loved doing this layout. But I always do when it comes to 
my boys. I could scrap them all the time. These pics were taken
at the movies in a photo booth. The boys had so much fun with
all the faces. They all wanted to have made the best but when
printed Riley and their friend Ethan had no hope against Harley.
The one where he was pretending to put his finger up his nose 
was the winner. "Yuk Button, your are disgusting"

I have used a range of things for this layout. Kaiser Craft - 
Wood Flourish Plaque, Crackle stamp, Patterned papers (Empire 
Collection), Patterned paper mix, Card stock, Jenni B collection
- paper owls, Stampin' Up ink - Chocolate and my ever loved
Slick writer.


So ladies pop on over to Beyond Grey Challenges and have a 
look at the other DT girls work. They have done some awesome
work for this challenge. While there join in on the fun and be in 
the running for 5 free digital Whimsy Stamps of your choice.
Woohooo great prize so have fun.
