Merry Christmas

I would like to wish all my friends and followers a very Merry Christmas.
Stay safe and enjoy yourself :)

123 Challegne

I am on a roll at present with all the layout I am creating :)
This one is for the 123 Challenge.
This month's 3 selection criteria is to use...colour: metallic + technique: bow + word: Joy.
Didn't have a lot of metallic elements to work with but I am please with I did use.
Had to take the photo in the late afternoon sun otherwise none of the metallic elements would of been seen to there full potential. Played with the mist on the background here, used a straw to blow out the large droplets. Looks okay I think.
This will most likely be my last share for this month so I hope you have all enjoyed what I have created.

Stuck ?! Sketch Challenge

I loved the second sketch in this month's sketch challenge over at Stuck?! so I just had to play along.
This is my layout...
Mia was so cute in this photo taken a couple of years ago, she was more interested in the tag then unwrapping the present, that is why I decided to title this layout 'is this mine'.
Thanks for stopping by :)

All I Want For Christmas

Scrap The Boys blog challenge this month is to scrap a layout about 'all I want for Christmas'.
So this is what I did after finding this gorgeous photo of my oldest son taken a few years back.
I used up some older Christmas supplies here. Loved using the Basic Grey patterned paper for the background, it gives the layout a warm feel.
I am loving creating at present seeing has I have more time being on holidays :)

Another Layout To Share

This page is for this month's challenge over at Kraft It Up.
Had a choice of two different colour combo...
Aqua/Kraft/White/Silver or Pink/Kraft/ White/Gold.
So of course I went with the Pink/Kraft/White/Gold.
I used some stamps and rubons in white and pink on the background to add a bit of lift to the kraft cardstock. Raided my Christmas scraps box for the paper and some of the other bits and pieces.
Want to see a close up?

White with Banana

Well I think my banana is a bit over ripe...lol!!!
White With 1 colour challenge this month is white with banana but my banana is off or over ripe I think...
Have a look and see for yourself...
Isn't it funny when I am looking for a certain colour in my stash I can never seem to find it, but at other times when not needed I can, very frustrating!
Anyway this is my layout for this months challenge. Here are some close ups to show some of the details.

This photo of Summah was taken on our Bali trip [Sept 2013] at the Waterbom park, Summah didn't want to get her photo taken with the local mascot 'the waterbom duck' but we talked her into it and it is a lovely photo :)
Thanks for stopping by ♥

Candy Red and Crystal Blue

What a lovely colour combo when added to black. These are the colour combo for this months challenge at Black With Two.
I will get right into showing you my page, so here it is...
Don't know if I got the crystal blue colour right but this is the closest I had. This page started as a big disaster, you should see the back side of the black cardstock...big, big, big MESS!!!
But hey I just could throw out the cardstock, but I didn't I used the back side. It didn't have the texture but that was ok.
Thanks for stopping by :)
