Scrap the Girls - January

This month Scrap the Girls challenge blog have got a gorgeous sketch to start the new year.. As soon as I saw it, I knew that I didn't want to miss out on creating with it!
I had such fun making this layout with soft girlie colours.. It's not often I get to have fun with GIRLINESS since I have two boys that most of my scrapping is focused on.. But this gorgeous photo of one of the amazing teachers at my boys primary school deserves all the pretty goodness that I could throw at it.. lol.. :)

On the base there are a few sprays, two sets of texture pastes..
The embellishments are a bunch of mix matches that all somehow come together perfectly on the page.. I was truly having a "blessed" moment while making it.. I felt so overwhelmed that it was coming together so nicely and it actually felt easy.. I LOVED the process of making this page and in real life, it is beyond stunning...

This will probably be set onto a canvas and will be a present for the teacher in the photo, so haven't put any journaling on here, but have left the tags in a position so they can be used for journaling later.. Thanks for dropping by, now don't forget to head on over to the Scrap the Girls blog too..

Scrapbook Fantasies - week 1

Hey Hey.. Back I am with my first challenge entry for the new year..
As usual Scrapbook Fantasies are right on top of their challenge releases and of course I'm "loving" their week 1 - 2015 idea... "Create a project using the word or theme of LOVE"..
he waits all her life for this dance
This special layout features a photo of my cousin Aleesha and her Dad (my Uncle Ian), during their Father/Daughter dance at her wedding in 2010..
I have chosen to use very natural and soft tones for the embellishments so that they didn't overpower the beautiful black and white photo..
The one pop of colour that I've included on this layout is the tag under the photo.. It serves two purposes in fact.. The first is that it holds the "love" word aspect of the challenge requirement.. The second is that on the back of the tag I have wrote a lovely "father/daughter bond" poem.. 

The butterflies were punched from a punch that I picked up from my Mum's.. :)
The flowers are all random and I honestly don't know the manufacturers..
Plenty of buttons, pearls and shimmerz paint for that extra stunning little touch..

Quick Card Share

Howdy... It's been a week since my last post, so thought I'd jump on and quickly share with you a couple of cute cards and an ATC that I completed a couple days ago..
I really haven't done any other crafting.. The boys are keeping me busy being on school holidays.. :)
These are only simple, but serve the purpose and meet the themes..
"sports" ATC
 "Anything Goes" card..

"Fairy" card.. 
I'm hoping to get some more crafting done soon.... maybe.. lol..
Hope you're all enjoying the holidays too and getting much more craft time than I am.. :)
Don't forget to head on over to my facebook page for up to date craftiness, when it actually happens..
