Extra-ordinary moments...

I love this photo taken over the past summer...to me it captured what was a wonderful day at Farm
Beach with family, a beautiful day and lovely sunset!!

The colours and papers of the Atlantic range by Studio Calico worked perfectly for me here. Along with some misting and faint stamping, wood veneers and some tags n ribbon. I love the cork stars/asterixs that came with my SC PL kit....they have grid pattern on one side and cork on the other, and those very cute little dark grey alpha stickers also in the PL kit last month....just happened to work with this page too!
Now to tidy my desk, ready for a few days away....

Hope you have a good week,

Catchya soon,

turning Four today....

It's time to document another birthday - and this time it was Mace's 4th birthday. Rach very cleverly made a 'Batman' cake this time....which, of course was yet another winner!! I love her cakes!! And more importantly Mace loved it!!

I have had some fun with  Basic Grey's  papers and embellishments, the "Hey Boy" and "Hipster" ranges. I love the colours and patterns of the papers...funky and groovy and a little yesteryear-ish. Added some washi tape and a couple little transparency die-cuts, and a banner also from Basic Grey.

Hope you are having a good week and thanks for popping on by,

I set a challenge over at E2C a couple weeks ago....because i thought it was a cute collection of goodies, not thinking of the colours - which are so not me and all my tribe of boys. But i worked on it over the weekend and this is what i have come up with :

I started with my chalk pastels making the varigated background behind the photo, then i used some mists on the  white cardstock, added some stamping, random papers, butterflies and it grew and grew. All was good!

Hope you are having a lovely week and Thanks for popping on by,

slip 'n slide....

I have been having some more fun with the Pier collection by Crate Paper, this time with Eli having fun on the slip n slide at our house this past summer!

And with the very cold wintery days we've just been having i have enjoyed the warmth from these pages!! And look forward to some sunshiney days!!

Hope you have found a warm spot these last few days and had a chance to scrap a little!!

Thanks for poppin' on by,

Have a good weekend!

Project Life - June

With the month of June comes yet another birthday in our family. And this time we celebrated young Jacob's 8th birthday with a get together with the cousins. These get togethers are always lots of fun!!

My Project Life page 2 & 3 of June:

 Documenting my rekindled ability to crochet, school pick-ups of the Grandies, the Supermoon event and time with more grandies and their love of books!!
I have bought some Becky Higgins Project Life cards.....oh, they are delish!! My big inital worry about them was they are round cornered and i have done half the year with square cut inserts....but really, once i pop them in amongst my photos......i don't even notice.....so i am going to mix it up.

a beautiful day with you...

I have had more fun with my mists n water to give the water-coloured effect for my background. I added some texture paste, some old rubons - you know when old rubons sometimes don't go on properly?- well, these went on perfectly - and to get the old half off look, i had to rub like crazy!! typical ey?!!

Did a little stamping and page was done!!

It was a beautiful day!! Sun, Sand, Sea and kids what else would one want?? Love it!!

Hope you are having a lovely day, maybe remembering some nice warmer days of our summer just gone.

Thanks for popping by,

Summer Fun...

I have been having some fun with Crate Papers 'Pier' collection, and also with some mists and water for the water-colour effect along the edges. The summery feel to this range reminded me of fun times over the summer with the grandies!!

Hope you have been having some fun with some new papers!

Crochet bug...

Just recently i have had the urge to get out some wool and crochet a granny rug. What?? Is it just the cool weather or am i morphing into my Grandmother?? She was very good at all handicrafts and i admired her talents....but me crocheting a granny rug??

I have crochet once before, many years ago, so i got out some wool and my hook and i began....the first sqaure was a bit wonky....and once i re-read the pattern again and again, my square actually did resemble a square.....so off i went and bought some wool to begin my Granny rug.

So here is begins my Granny rug.....not something i want to finish this week but i will get there!

What new things are you trying your hand at this winter?? Do you have an urge to get out some wool and needles too??

Have a nice day,
Sue xx

June- Project Life

Finally last week i got around to scrap my first June page for my PL album. As i thought, mid year, during the winter months when life is a little quieter...the photos are not as plentiful....so therefore i am thinking i will only get to complete a double layout for this month.....wait and see how the photos stretch out.lol!!
I was pleased how my monthly title square turned out, just by adding a MME banner, a doily, Jillibean soup word sticker, some OA stickers (which i shadowed two colours) and added some washi tape. Easy peasy!
A get together with staff mates to farewell a buddie, my little winter vegie patch, more footy photos, a scrap moment with a friend, and of course the crops are growing in the sunshine!!

I have more photos for another page....then onto July....out with my camera for a some day-to-day snaps of our Life 2013.

Hope you are having a nice winter and scrapping a little bit,

Sue xx
