Good Times & Graduation Pics

Hi everybody!!
I'm here today to share my layout for the new word up 
and that word is
Don't forget you have until the end of the month
to get your entry in...and you still have TIME for 
the TRUST challenge!
So here is my layout
Good Times

A slightly older pic of my gorgeous boy :)

And we can't forget the close ups!!

On a different note, my darling daughter has graduated from Year 7. We had her graduation night
on Tuesday, then a Pizza Party yesterday...and off she went to Wet n Wild today!
Geez I don't remember anything like that when I was at school LOL
But anyway here are a couple of pics of Brianna before we left. No doubt you will
see these on layouts soon enough LOL

It was a little chilly LOL
not what we were summer!

Such a shame, this is the only full length pic I got,
 without blinking or silly faces :(
And got none of her up on stage, as the lighting was shocking :((
But got plenty of other shots LOL
Well thanks for letting me share!

Long time no see!!
Don't know about you but its getting pretty crazy here leading into 
yep, you know it, CHRISTMAS!!!!
Don't mind the whole christmas thing cause it means I get 3 lovely weeks away
from work spending time with my beautiful family :))
BUT I hate all the christmas drama!! Its a nightmare to even go to my local 
shopping centre to pick up some bread and milk.
No parking spots left, people driving like loonies through the carparks.
 People acting like if they take another 10 seconds on their trip
they may kill someone! Geez talk about non-christmassy!!
Lighten up guys!!! Its supposed to be a happy season!!
My babies are growing up!!!
Well thats enough of that I think LOL
cause the world is looking bright and I have some sharing to do :))
This layout is of my gorgeous girl!

These papers went perfectly with my gorgeous birds from 
Stuff 2 Scrap aren't they cute!!

Some close ups :))

I have another to share with you...but will come back tomorrow 
to do that :))
Hope you are all having a fabulous week!!

A New Layout

Hiya all! I hope you are all doing fine and dandy?
All good here, super busy as usual. This afternoon I left work early to head 
to the school for Riley's Prep Admission Interview.....
there was a test that they did. It was quite funny, as Riley couldn't
believe that they were asking him to do such easy things LOL
He blitzed through their test with flying colours!
So proud of my boy :))
But anyways here to share my latest layout up at

 I LOVE this abstract piece and thought it was perfect for this layout of my
gorgeous boy. I have inked it red and given it a coat of glossy accents to give it a nice shine :)
And a closie

I hope you like :) And I hope you will pop on over to the blog to see what else
is going on!! 
See you soon!

My Fave Chipboard Projects - Looong Post

Hi everybody!
I'm here today to share with you my


I will warn you that this is going to be a rather long post. I hope you will bear with me
as the is a reason for this ;)
These are mostly projects that if you have followed me for awhile,
you will probably have seen before. But I hope you don't
mind me sharing them again and sharing some of how I achieved 
what I did with the chipboard :)

So first up I will share
Where will your path Lead?

Ah I loved this layout. I really wanted to go for an aged looking garden gate for this layout.
But also wanted to keep it kind of girly and and a bit of shine:) So first I coated the chipboard piece
in Pewter Liquid Pearls. I let this dry and then grabbed out my inks. I have slightly coated certain parts of 
the gate in pink and green ink. I opened the gate to where I wanted it and entwined some roses
up one post of the gate. I thought it worked quite well. Here's a close up :)

Up next is the layout Oh Baby

 For this layout I used quite a bit of different chipboard pieces. I really love how the heart turned out in
this one. First thing I did was paint the chipboard white and let it dry. I then used an
Music Note embossing folder and ran it through the Big Shot. To really highlight the music notes
I then grabbed out the trusty liquid pearls in pewter again. The I painted this onto the raised
music notes. For the title and the scroll, I misted these with a lovely pale blue and added some bling. 

Me @ 34, is a rare layout :) but a kind that I'm trying to more of...because it's about me LOL
 Ok with this layout I have used some gorgeous butterflies. One I have left raw and simply added some bling. The other I have painted in a pink that coordinates with my papers. I then coated it in a layer
of Diamond Stickles. With the scroll I have painted it in a lovely teal and again
added some pearls.

Feel free to take a break if you need to :) Up next is Believe in Yourself.
 I have used a corner scroll and a dress form for this layout. I have painted the scroll in black 
and glossed it with glossy accents and added some pink pearls. I LOVE dress forms! 
With this one I have painted it, androughly inked the edges in a dark pink. I have then 
dressed it in a cute tulle skirt and added some black pearls to tie it into the project.
Next is Sweetness
The chipboard frame I have used in this project have been coated in a lovely bronze
Shimmerz. :) Sorry don't have a close up of this one for you.
This one is Us Girls
 Ah another dress form. For this one I have left it raw, but I have dressed it in a cute
dress that I actually made from the bottom of one of my daughters old dresses. 
Added a bit of lace at the waist to belt her :) The scroll has been painted and glossed aswell. 

My Little Man

 Quite a simple layout. Love this penny farthing and wanted it to stand out,
so it has been painted in red and I have also given it some shine with glossy accents
and added some pearls to the wheel centres :)

Next is Hope, 
 For this one I have again used the Bronze Shimmerz for the scroll. Love a good shimmer :)
For the clock I have used a dark brown distress ink on the hanger and edges, but
have left the face raw. I have used an olive green shimmer on the title.

And next is Live for Today
I kept this window arch quite simple with a coat of light pink paint that
coordinated with my papers.
And here is another
 Love these doilies too! Is there a piece of chipboard I don't love??LOL
Again quite simple, a coat of pink, but a shimmery pink this time :)
And here is Reach for the Stars
  I got this awesome brick wall, but decided to use the outer frame and coat in a glossy black.
I have used some of the bricks, but have left those raw. And the skull has been painted in a cool 
silver to match my little boys shirt :)
And finally (phew I think I heard you say LOL) is
 With this layout, I have left the doilies raw, but have misted the butterflies pink, such a
gorgeous shimmery colour :)

Well if you have made it this far...I'm impressed :)
I had so much trouble choosing which projects to share with you today, as you 
may be able to tell I am a bit of a chipboard fan hehehe I think I shared
a couple more than was planned.
Feel free to browse my blog as there are many more layouts there using chipboard too!
I hope you have enjoyed this post. It has given me some renewed inspiration I think.

Stuff 2 Scrap Challenge

Hi everybody!
I'm back today to share with you my layout for the
November Challenge we have going on over at
the challenge this month is
(1) Paint - but wait! No brushes, sponges, etc. Use your creative hands to get paint onto your layout.
(2) Stacked chippie! This is a great way to use up varying sizes of the same design or combine totally different chipboard patterns, pieces and styles to create something new.
(3) Song lyrics - these can either make up your title, your journalling, or just a line on the layout somewhere. Any song you like is fine, from nursery rhymes to your favourite rock anthems!
 So here is my DT example

I finger painted  a rough circle.

My crowns are stacked :)
And there's a line from Foo Fighters - Everlong
One of my all time fave songs....
here's a link for you :)) 
Anyways I hope you will take part in our challenge this month.
There is a super FAB chippie pack up for grabs!!
Will be back soon with my latest BITW layout for you.
Until next time my lovelies
