Layout of the week

My princess layout I posted a few posts back has made it onto the Wicked Princess blog as LOTW. How cool is that. Two of my projects have got a mention on two different sites in one day. Now that has really made my day.

How cool and a share

I got a yummy email this morning from Lisa saying that my Baby onesie card is featured up on Craft journal as part of this weeks inspiration. It so made my morning.
On Wednesday night in amongst my sneezing and sniffling I played along with Mandy's blind scrap and this is the page I created with it.
Thanks Mandy I love how this turned out and it has made me start reaching for my stash of yummy materials I have here.
Also on Friday night the Look what we did with Bella albums post went live over at Therapy and I created a birthday book in the hope that it will help me not to forget birthdays. I used my new Purple onion date me stamp set and a Antique ledger stamp all through my album with lots of yummy Bella goodies that are on sale over in Therapy.The end of the month is near and that means I have been doing some creating that I can't share as yet for Therapy's cybercrop next weekend and the reveal of the new man of the month. Stay tuned to the forum as clues will be going up any day now.
Till next time, tomorrow when I will post my latest STM layout, thanks for popping in and any comments and happy scrapping.

Baby card inspiration anyone

I got to play with with some of the new Purple Onion baby themed note block stamps this month. They are not up on the site as yet but will be found in here when they are.
When I did up the blue one I liked it so much I did a pink version too.
I also used part of the words on the block on two shaped cards as well.
I had fun making these up.
On the dress card I used the Script background as well as the Doodled flower set. I got the idea and the template for the card from here.For the baby Onesie card, as they are called in America I used the doodled flower set again.
You can find the steps for making this card here.
Both Mel and Lauren do some awesome stuff and often have templates and tutorials posted on thier blogs so make sure you check them out.
Till next time thanks for popping in and any comments and happy scrapping.

Lots to share guys.

So grab a coffee and make yourselves comfy.
This pic will probably be my photo for this weeks 52 week album unless I take another one that will take it's place. My missy has always had issues with the water and isn't going to be a Thorpee that's for sure. It has only been in the last year that she has really gotten over putting her face in the water and has never been one for jumping in either which has been holding her back in the levels. She is in level two and the oldest in her class by two years I think.

I've been working with some of the Bella goodies that are on sale this month over in Therapy.

Here is my layout that I did the blind scrap instructions from last weekend.

I christened my new script stamp from Purple Onion on this layout and it has become my new fav Purple stamp.

We are lucky enough to live across the road from the school and it is Asher's mid week treat to be able to walk home by herself on a Wednesday, with me standing on the corner that is. She's been warned a few times that if she plays up and doesn't cross at the crossing guard she will not be doing it again in a hurry.

This is my yearly walking down the drive on the first day of school photo. I think I have only missed one year.I've used one of the Bella Grace die cut sheets of cardstock and although I like the shape and the pattern on it I can't get my head around the punched holes in it so I've been trying to cover them up.

A card made from the scraps of something I can't share just yet. You will have to pop into therapy next weekend to see what I did with the rest of the circle die cut cardstock.
My latest page for scrapping the music. So not the best photo of my Missy A but I scrapped it anyway as it fit in with the lyrics of the new song.I am so loving these papers from Websters. They are so asking to be cut up and layered and you can see I have used my latest fav stamp from Purple onion again.
Two weeks entries for my 52 week album.
Week 10.
This is Asher jumping up in excitement when they called out for any flounders caught in the swan fish to be brought up and wieghed in.
Week 11
My husband doing a spot of sunset fishing on Wednesday night last week when we went up to Tranby House on the river where we got married and had fish and chips for tea.
I used another of my new Purple Onion stamps the Date me set on this layout and goodies from my March guestie kit over at Scrap my memories. I have got so much out of that kit and there is still enough to make a few more of my 52 week layouts or cards.
I've also had some fun with other projects for Purple onion but will share here once I get the ok from Michele. I can't wait to share two of my projects on which I tried something different and really liked the results and will be doing again for sure.
Well that's about it for now. Thanks for popping in and any comments and till next time happy scrapping.

Have you all been checking out What's new over at Therapy. I just did. Some great yummies there from My little yellow bicyle and Websters Pages. If you would like to grab some you had better pop on your running shoes though as I am sure if it is anything like the last time we had Websters in it won't be there for long.

Photos galore and a card too

Not much scrapping done this weekend but I've got loads of pics to share.
Our Missy got an honour certificate on Friday at school. I was so proud of her. I took some pics but they pretty shocking. I can never manage to get good ones at the assemblies. Oh well not to worry. I will take a pic of her with it durring the week.
This weekend out here in Perth it was the yearly Swan fish competition and dh being the avid fisher is he joined in and so did Asher.
She had caught herself a flounder Saturday morning in the first few minutes of having her line out and was so excited about it.
Here she is with it. Not wanting to hold it though.
This morning we went up to the weigh in and had hoped that Missy would be in with a chance of a prize with her flounder. This I took as they called up all the flounders in to be weighed. She excited don't you think.Of the three flounders weighed in hers came in last but it wasn't by much.
At the park near the weigh in there were a few weight exercise things and Missy had a ball on them. One of many pics I took.
Trying to get a nice photo of my two together isn't easy.This is the best of three or so I tried to snap while waiting at the weigh in.And here she is with one of DH's catches. It so wasn't going to win anything but it didn't stop her wanting to take it up to get weighed.
I had hoped to do a few of the challenges for the scrap my memories cybercrop but I only got to one of them. Made this with some of the yummies left over form the guest dt kit. And one of my fav Penny Black stamps that I've not used in ages.
Well that's it for now. Till next time thanks for popping in and any comments and happy scrapping

Hey guys just a quick pop in before heading of to bed.
I pulled out my Kit from Scrap my memories to work with again before packing my scrap stuff away for the day and madeup this gift set with the Jenni Bowlin paper from it.I wasn't too sure just what I was going to do with this paper but when I started cutting out the patteren it all just fell togther. Simple but I love it.
I am having so much fun with the kit and can't wait to play with it some more tomorrow night after work.
I also can't waitto play with my Purple stamps some more either after I added some to the b'day card and gift bag.
Here are my DT sample for February.
I have used my favorite Vintage postmark date set along with the Doodled flower sentiment set, and the doodled foliage set on the same page.
I enjoyed making my butterfly out of one of the flowers from the doodled flower set I made some more.
I also used the Seasons set and one of the stamps Seasonal definitions set.
And then used one of the Seasonal Definatitions set stamps again along with the Hopscotch Sentiments set that I used on my b'day set.
Well that's it from me for now so thanks for popping in and any comments and till next time happy scrapping.
