Scrappy stuff to share

I've got 2 layouts to share. The first one is my take on Anthea's Sketch Challenge over at Scrapbooking Top 50. I've used the Petal Pusher range from Bo Bunny for this. I love the bright colours of these pp's. The photos are of my DD and one of her best friends.
This one was for the Recipe Challenge set by Sue during the CC at Scrapbooking Top 50. I've used the 'Lucky Me' range from Little Yellow Bicycle here. The photos are of my DD and I before she went on her River Cruise in June. All products used for these layouts can be found here.
I hope you are all having a great weekend! Thanks for visiting and for your lovely comments. They are very appreciated.
Until next time. M xox

Stuck?! layout...

...using the August 15th sketch. I print out all the beautiful sketches form Stuck?! every month but don't seem to get around to doing one very often. I'm aiming to change that though. :)
I've used Kaisercraft 'Lush' pattern papers and embellies for this with added 'bud and bow' ribbon, half pearls, embroidery thread and AC 'Niki Riki' Thickers. You can find all the products at Handmade by Suzanne.
I always enjoy working with Sara's sketches and hope to do more in the very near future.

It's turned out to be quit a week for us (again!). After complaining of tummy ache late on Sunday afternoon and hardly any sleep on Sunday night we landed up at the ED at Murdock hospital and DD (15) having her appendix removed at around 9.30 pm Monday night. Just in time too! She came home yesterday afternoon and all is going well. :) Lol, I think I had my fare share of surprises for a while.
I've got a couple of layouts to share that I've done for 'Handmade by Suzanne' using the Basic Grey 'Oliver' range. I love the colours in this range and the chipboard stickers are amazing! This is an old photo I had lying around and I thought these papers where perfect for it. The little 'Place, Date and Name' tickets are from Jenni Bowlin Studios and are perfect for recording those essential details on you layouts. All products can be found here.
I thought I'll get in early and make a Fathers Day card so long. Lol, its very unusual for me to be so organised.
This is the gorgeous sketch created by DT member, Natalie, for the 'August Sketch Challenge' at HBS. Why not give it a go? You can win a cool prize! Find the details here.
This is my take on it using 'Oliver' again. The photo is of my DS and my DH fooling around just before DS went to his Year 12 Ball.
Okies, that's all for today. Hope you are all having an awesome week and lots of time to scrap. Thanks for popping by and take care.

Up, Up and Away...

Hi everybody. I'm back with another layout and card I've scrapped over last weekend. Just haven't had time to blog again. :( Still trying to visit everybody else's blogs too and am slowly getting there...
This is another DT layout for HBS. I've used the 'Up, up and Away' range from Kaisercraft and an old photo of DD and I that was taken 13 years ago. I so miss her being so little. She's 15 now and although a lovely teenager, she's not 2 anymore. *huge sigh*
I love these pattern papers and the printed chipboard buttons and balloons are to die for. The little envelopes are just too cute too. All products used are available in store here.
A card made with the left over papers.
I hope you are all having a great week. Thanks for visiting and for all your lovely comments. It makes my day every time!
Take care.

I'm back...

I'm back at last! I can't tell you guys how good it feels. It's like I've been living someone else's life for the last month. Lol, it wasn't quite that bad... I'm just suffering from extreme scrapping withdraw!!! For everybody thats wondering what kept me so busy during the last 5 to 6 weeks, I'll give you a quick update. We bought a unit that was in serious need of a total make-over and everything happened so quick that there wasn't too much time to think. There were a lot of dust, very early mornings and late nights and too many tradesmen to remember. We are getting to an end now and hopefully the unit will be ready to go on the rental market by Monday next week. I just hope we can find a tenant soon... then we'll be able to relax a bit. All a bit too stressful for me.
Well, my 'boss lady' over at Handmade by Suzanne was all very understanding (Thanks Suzanne!) but its back to bussiness for me now and back to my DT responsibilities (and how I've missed it!!) I've done my first layout for HBS using the brand new Kaisercraft range called 'Hippy Girl'. I love the colours in this range and the printed chipboard and journalling tags are great. The very cute butterfly is from Jenni Bowlin. All products used are available here.

A card made from the left overs. And another Jenni Bowlin butterfly.
I promise I'll be back soon with more to share. I'm also planning on catching up on everybody's blogs by the weekend. Wish me luck!
Hope you are all having a wonderful week and thank you so much for visiting!
