Too Cute

Thank you for visiting my blog today.

Today I am sharing a little card I will enter the Cute Card Thursday Challenge # 338 "Too Cute".

I made it for my Great Nephew, who too is very cute.

 Patterned papers are Prima.  Image and sentiment is Lili of the Valley and Grunge board number is Tim Holtz.

and of course finished with come liquid pearls and kindy glitz.

I have to say just for a change it was made in super quick time (not something that usually happens but I may use this design again.)

Thanks again for looking.

Until next time....

Autumn Leaves

I must be on a roll..........  I managed to do a last minute layout for Stuck 15 August Challenge.  Continuing with the Autumn Bo Bunny papers I like how it all came together using five photos of Zac's Easter photo shoot playing in the leaves. 

The ruler is a Prima

and the 'Stuck' Sketch for 15th of the month challenge. It is a great page for lots of photos.

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit today.  Have a great week.
Until next time....

PS - Oops - too late as it closed on 29 August.  Never mind I got another page done regardless.

Dusty Attic - Jake

Good afternoon.  Thank you for visiting my blog today.  Have I really blogged 3 times this week? - must be on a roll after the Scrap retreat last weekend.

I started this layout last weekend with the Bo Bunny 'Autumn Song' range of papers which suited the autumn photo shoot photos beautifully.  And finally finished it last night for this month's Dusty Attic Sketch Challenge.

I really dug deep into my stash to find the felt leaf trim which I have had for years but finally found a use for it and the mini leaves which I have had in my stash since the beginning of my scrapping days almost 10 years ago. 

and the sketch
I hope you are enjoying the weekend.  It has been a nice spring day here today and has gone too fast with an appointment this morning followed by a visit to the farmers market and a 3 year old birthday party.  The housework is still beckoning (tomorrow is another day lol). I just wanna scrapbook!!!
That's it for today
Until next time....

Family Photo

Back again....  Thank you for stopping by today.

Today I am posting another layout  - a photo of my DD#2's family. 

Created with Kaisercraft papers (I think), Prima tags, Manor House doily together with some moulding paste and liquid pearls.  Quite a simple page for me but I am pleased with it.

I have joined in with the Stuck 1 August Challenge with this one.

Thanks again for visiting.  I will be back in the weekend with some of last weekend's creations.

Natalie May

Happy Mid-week.  Hope it is going well for you.  Thanks for visiting.

Today's share goes back a bit to Autumn Escape at Taupo at the end of April.  I attended a Natalie May class and thoroughly enjoyed it.  It was perfect for the photos I was lucky enough to have as they were taken just a few days before.   Love Natalie's style - go and check out her blog Happy Daks.

I am very keen to have another play with this style.  Thanks Natalie for the inspiration and fun class.

That's all for today.

Until next time....

Regards Dianne

Shabby Chic Bereavement Card

Hello and thank you for visiting today.  I hope you have had a lovely weekend.  I certainly have as finally I got to scrapbook all weekend at the Embellish It Raincliff Retreat and I think I have my mojo back.  It was lovely to catch up and be inspired and share ideas with like-minded crafters.

Today I am sharing a Bereavement Card I made for a friend, on the passing of her mother last week.  A little eclectic shabby chic but loved creating it with special features of remembering Dora.

I have decided to enter this card into two challenges
  • One is at We Do Doobadoo. which is a Shabby Chic challenge.
  • The other is a 'Celebration' #93 challenge at Sugar Creek Hollow.  Although my card is a bereavement card it is more a celebration of Dora's life with little mementos of a lady that was very special to her family. She loved flowers and fashion and when I first met her some 30 plus years ago she was enjoying a game of Housie (Bingo).
 I have used Marian Smith patterned papers and mixed this with flowers, trinkets lace and some very old vintage bead trim from my stash. 
Thanks  again for looking.  I will be back as I now have some new work to share.  I attended a 'Gabrielle Pollaco' layout class at retreat and also completed one of her recent kits which I am very pleased with.
Bye for now

Still no Scrapbooking,,,

But last weekend this was the creation that DD#3 had me help create.  A diaper cake for a friend who is to soon have a baby.

Quite funky with the colour of the Hairy Macleary nappies etc. 

Tonight we have had visitors for tea so today's creations were a meal including this lemon and ginger stuffed salmon.
I also made a Nadia Lim Salad - Avocado, Pumpkin, Haloumi and Quinoa Salad , Hasselback potatoes and finished off with a Raw Mango Pineapple Cheesecake.  I didn't think to take a photo of the rest as I was too busy serving it but this was before the salmon was cooked.

Must get off to bed - lots to do today and must pack for the Raincliff Scrap Retreat next weekend.

Thanks for visiting .  Bye for now
