February Kit at Scrapdango

February spice kit arrived on my doorstep bursting with beautiful things.
This amazing kit was full of the awesome range from My Mind's Eye - Quite Contrary. Gorgeous blend of colours and patterns, matched with some solid colours on the flip side. Embellies included MME's journal tags, chiboard alphas and a touch of Aussies Buzz & Bloom.


I might add, the sugar kit, Scribble Scrabbles Nanas Trunk, was just as gorgeous!!


Here are a few pages I have done so far,

Forgot to share!


We are half way through week three of a fabulous competition over at Artistic Document and it has a fabulous music flavour.

The Magical Musical Tour has left the station.

Week one was taking a little salsa inspiration, bright colours, ruffles and paint.

Dance like nobodys watching



Week two was classical using mainly Black and White, music paper, rubons, pearls and chandeliers.

Feeling Good



Week three we are going 1950's Rock n Roll, using black and one other colour, brads, retro alpha and a bit of vinyl. Well I am still working on mine, so stay tuned.

March reveal for Savvy

This month Sarah surprised me with a collection I have loved since first spotting it. I will admit, it is not my usual style of papers, but the subtle blend of black, green, cream and pink were irresistable.
I am talking about the gorgeous collection from Webster's Pages - Life's Portrait! teamed with the matching journal cards, Jenni Bowlin Bingo Cards Alpha Tiles and the awesome acrylic lava lamp embellishment for Buzz and Bloom
This collection has a real vintage feel to it.
So this may surprise many of you, I know it did me, my little man will not grace these pages. I have tried to create some classical and feminine pages, hopefully they will inspire some people.

PS I have even been creating my very own flowers. Who would have thought!

One of my favourite scrappers at the moment is USA scrapper Donna Downey

Savvy 'All About Me' March Challenge

This month I am challenging you all to document your 'Bucket List'
Create a page about things you hope to achieve before you leave this earth.
Everyone has them, watching the kids grow up, being a Grandparent, travelling the world or maybe just wanting to live to one hundred.

You can use the title 'My bucket List' if you wish, but it is not mandatory.

Remember how important this page could be in years to come if you were to loose the capacity to communicate. It will give your loved ones an idea of the things you had dreamt of doing. It can list your hopes, your dreams or your fantasies, what ever you feel you would like to document.

So I am hoping you will pop over to Savvy and play along.

A few guidelines for Savvy challenges:
1. Your page must be created specifically for this challenge.
2. You must upload by midnight on the last day of the month to the correct gallery folder for this challenge in the Savvy gallery.
3. You can post your pages on your personal blogs with a link back to Savvy.

Upload into the Scrapbook Savvy gallery (in the correct folder) by midnight March 31 for your chance to win some Savvy $$'s.

"I have a dream"
