A few pages from last weekend

My gorgeous friend Kellie came to visit me last weekend all the way from Brisbane and we enjoyed a few days full of shopping, eating and scrapping. Just wish she could have stayed longer!
So I thought I would share a few of the pages today that I had scrapped for some challenges around the traps and Yes Kel, I have finally journaled on them and added finishing touches.

Purple Pumpkin Sketch Challenge

{4} Hot Chicks


Deb's SFS Sketch Challenge

Freeze Frame


Charm's SFS Quote Challenge



I managed to scrap 14 pages over the weekend, some still need journaling and titles which I will hopefully do over my holidays.

Some chipboard goodness to share

Morning to all! I am a little sick at the moment, so I thought I would sit quietly at the computer and share some pages I had created last weekend. I did some scrapping just for me, but I always manage to include my favourite chipboard embellishments from 2Crafty.

Here's a funny story
This page showcases the only and only time you will ever see my son with his face painted. A momentary lapse in his usual stubborn stance about face painting, A time to celebrate because I think he looks gorgeous!

Features the perfect title 'Here's a funny story' inked with Pinecone and then decorated with different gel pens for some colour. I have finished the piece of with glossy accents.


I have also added a Tiny Funky Frame to use as a journal spot and a Chinese Dragon inked in red and decorated with a bit of sparkle using Stickles


Star Stuck
A fun page created with photos from the recent Easter Ball. Mark Wilson was the Master of Ceremonies for the evening and he was so friendly and easy going. We had a great evening!

There is lots of 2Crafty goodness on this page.

The Scalloped Circle Bunting has been inked and then decorated with patterned paper.


I have used Helena's Corners to frame the photos, they have been inked with metallic bronze and I have added some pearls for a bit of elegance.


The Louisa Frame was perfect to frame the smaller photo of my big sis and her hubbie. The frame has been inked in metallic red and also decorated with pearls.


and last but not least, the title piece. It was originally Star Student, but with a little re-modelling and the addition of some 2Crafty alphabet letters, I have re-created the 'Star Struck' title. I have inked all of it with metallic lavender, put some patterned paper at the back of the star and added some Stickles to the smaller stars. And I nearly forgot the cute 2012, it has been inked and doodled with bronze gel pen.



The Magic of You

The final page was created using the gorgeous May Kit from Scrapbook Savvy. This kit sold out in the blink of an eye. I was not surprised, it featured the beautiful collection "What's Up' from Basic Grey.
I added the beautiful 2Crafty title The Magic of You. It has been Kindy Glitzed and smooched, just love the finish to it.


You can also spot another chipboard '2012' LOVE these!!

2Crafty - Carefree

Finally I have spent nearly a full day creating and boy did it feel good!

I've been playing with some new releases from 2Crafty and loving it.

Unfortunately the photos are a little crappy but hopefully when I get home from work I can update them.

There are 4 different new release pieces featured on this page, the very clever 2012 sheet, the very cool Polaroid Frames, a slightly dismembered Felicity Flourish and the Tiny Funky Frame.  








Thanks for visiting my blog, remember the 2Crafty design team call here which closes June 15th.

Scrapbook Savvy June Manufacturer Challenge

This month the featured manufacturer is BASIC GREY and to inspire you all to create Sar has reduced  Basic Grey products by 50% in the store. Of course, anyone who was lucky enough to snap up the first kit released in May, which sold out on facebook, will already have some BG What's Up to play with.

So, create a masterpiece using at least 80% Basic Grey products, the twist this month is to include stars on your page, upload to the correct gallery by Midnight June 30th to be eligible for some super Savvy dollars to spend in-store.

I've used Basic Grey What's Up to put together my sample page. The photos were taken at my son's pirate party recently showing off the costumes I put together thanks to Red Cross.
