A couple of layouts

A couple of layouts I did awhile ago. The winter one is when we had some serious snow in July on my daughters birhday. Pic was taken at the Botanical Gardens. (wished it was my garden). Sorry about the terrible pic of the LO.
Fire works LO was when I was trying to learn my camera last year in Canberra at the army's "Beat retreat" at the war memorial. Not the best pics, but it is a point and shoot camera after all. My inpsiration for this has to come from Loretta Grayson whose work I admire greatly.

Over the school hoildays I went to the local antique shop and boughts some gorgeous vintage/heritage photos. I mainly got them for ATC's but would love the scrap them now.
Here are 3 that I have played around with so far..

Yesterday went to Paperific with mum and bought some gorgeous stamps which I have been playing around with today making some more moo cards for a swap.
Also today we have been making a little halloween scene on the kitchen dresser
with a witches cauldron boiling with smoke, spiders, finger nails, and skeletal hands. I cut out witches, bats and scared cats out of black cardstock and stuck them on the wall, you can find all sorts of wonderful templates on I will share a photo later this week.
Thats all for me for now..

Cute little house

While I was up in Townsville about a month ago looking after the shop Scrapbook Shenanigans for Michele, I decorated a Doodlebug chipboard house. It was so much fun painting and decorating the windows with sheer muslin curtains and using soft muted colours. The only thing that wasnt so much fun, was punching out a million or so!!!! egg shapes, shaping them in your palm, and placing a little double sided foam square on each and every one, then placing on the roof as tiles. However the time and effort paid off with a cute little tacktile roof. Thats all for me, working on some vintage ATC's, and will share them with you once I have finished them...

You have to love postie, he delivers brillant stuff. Yesterday I recieved a beautiful RAK (Random act of kindess) from Bec from an envelope full og gorgeous vintage goodies to play with. So last night I made this little 4X4 canvas, I just added some ink and the vintage pic. Thank you Bec.

And then today postie delivered all these wonderful ATC's from a swap with Philippa from the theme was Aussies icons, myths & legends.

And also a beautiful ATC just for me from the lovely Peta also from BB. Thank you Peta, I shall have mine for you in the post tomorrow.

Other than creating all is fab, Imogen started school swimming today and loved every moment of it considering we havent been in a pool since last summer.

Finally an update

Hello all, yep back onto the blog thing, after a few people have asked why I havent updated it. Well it all comes down to being slack and nothing else really. And that I really dont know what I am doing so until I learn all the ins and outs of proper blogging, I am sorry this will be a rather boring blog to look at with some pics and a bit of text thrown in for good measure.

What have I been playing with lately. On BB the lovely Monique suggested a Moo card swap, rather intriqued I was so with a bit of detective work they are much smaller than an ATC measurements are 28mm by 70mm.

A very small canvas to work with but fun and challenging all the same. So here is my 1st pic for my updated blog which all going well shall be updated reguarly.

Until next time
