Life is good

This is a prime example of what non-scrappers would call “cutting up perfectly good paper and sticking it back together again”!  I like the effect, and the colour scheme works well with the photo, which I Instagrammed to make it look vintage.
Using: Teresa Collins Fabrications papers, Azza template, PortaCraft pearls and Cricut Graphically Speaking cartridge.


This is a rainy day I project I completed today for the Scrapboxx March Sketch Challenge and the Crafty Crops March Challenge.  
The photo is of my beautiful boy and I at my birthday lunch earlier this month.  I edited it using Instagram for the first time and I really like the effect and the ability to define the focus point.
Using: Teresa Collins Everyday Moments papers, Kaiser clock face and stamp, Stampin’ Up cardstock, stamps, ink and crayon, Bella brackets and Fiskars punch

Sweet Memories

For the Crafty Crops Vintage challenge, March 11, 2012.
A classic photo of my Granny and her sister enjoying the sun in South Freo back in 1945.

Summer ♥

Lachie made loud Ewwww noises when he saw these photos!  
I didn’t quite get the layout finished in time for the challenge, and I’m still not 100% satisfied with it, but I like the colour combination of hot pink and orange with the cooler pastel green and blue.
Using: Stampin’ Up cardstock and paper, Cricut Paper Lace cartridge, Glimmermist, Kindy Glitz and Opalettes embossing enamel.
