2 Crafty reveal

Well the past week and half all seems a bit of a blurr after a little hospital dash. Definitely not something I wanted to happen, but I finally realised it could have been very serious. I am still having trouble keeping up with what day of the week it is, but I am slowly getting through.

This month's challenge at 2 Crafty is to create a multi photo layout, use at least 2 photos and remember to include a piece of 2 Crafty chipboard. Link your layout to this post before November 7th to go in the draw.

I put a little harsh treatment on some 2 Crafty Cement Trucks to add to my double page spread.




And I wanted to share my door sign design with you using a 2 Crafty Scalloped frame in a different light. Made this one for Harrison after he spotted mine hanging on my scraproom door.

My final Scrapdango Kit reveal - October

Well I didn't realise while I was creating my pages this past week, but I am actually feeling a little sad. I have been on the Design team as the Newletter Editor/Kit designer since August 2008. It has been an amazing journey for me and I have thoroughly enjoyed every month.
Thank you to Carrie (the original owner) and now Heather, for giving me the opportunity to do what I love. Hopefully I have inspired a few girls along the way.
My duties will wrap up at the conclusion of our 'ABC of cards' crop at the end of this month.

Here are this month's beautiful kits:

Spice - Jillibean Soup Pasta Fagiole


Sugar - Combination of WRMK Maple Grove and Lily Bee Designs Catching Fall


I created my pages using the fabulous combo kit, love the colours!!

2 Crafty reveal - Leaf me alone

Yes I've been head first into my chipboard supplies again over the weekend and put together a page using a number of gorgeous chipboard pieces from 2 Crafty.

I've grabbed the Nude Tree that I had given a few squirts with a Glimmermist and embossed, Grass clumps were inked with Distress Ink and dressed up with some distress stickles, both in Peeled Paint. Finished the page with the gorgeous Maple Leaves inked in different autumn colours.
Love how it came together.

Check out the 2 Crafty Blog for more inspiring work.

2 Crafty reveal - Winners are grinners

Yes happy days, I have been playing with chipboard again.
Went the simple approach this week, covered my 2 Crafty Arrows and circle with patterned paper and then roughed up the edges a little. All of the pieces come from one 12x12 themed sheet called Arrows.
My favourite product from 2 Crafty (ATM) is the funky alphas Vanessa has created, gave them a quick spray with glimmermist and the doodled the faux stitching around the edge.
Finally got to use some older papers MME Out and About.

Scrap the Boys October 1st Challenge

It's Trick or Treat over at Scrap the Boys!!

TRICK -They all have one. You know, that trick they play on you whether it be copying everything you say or shadowing you so you don’t know where they are. Well here is your chance to scrap about it.


TREAT – Scrap about your boy’s favourite thing. That one thing you know he will consider a huge treat. This could be his favourite chocolate, game, place or those special moments he gives you (your treat…cuddles in bed on a Sunday)

I went for 'Tricks' cause he has so many!!
These are the faces he gives me when I am trying to talk seriously.
I usually end up pee-ing myself laughing and loose focus, good plan for him.

He's got tricks
