Final DT layout

This is my final DT layout for CBB. It uses the gorgeous Basic Grey Lilykate paper range, some kaiser word rubons and some very pretty flowers. I added some more Kaiser rubons, rhinestones and butterfly. As well as some AC thickers.

I loved this photo of my daughter in the backyard with her fairy wings on. We bought the wings and wand set from the Wiggles concert we went to just over a week ago. Gotta love the Wiggles. Anyway I wanted to make the photo a bit more fairy-ish and magical. So I did a little bit of photoshop magic and voila. I quite like the effect, it is just something a bit different.

Thanks for visiting me and feel free to leave a comment, I love reading what people think.

OTPs galore

Hi all

I have been busy busy lately making mini albums. I thought I would share the one that I have made for my Brother-in Law. Dearest Brother-in-law if you are reading my blog, please look away now lol.

I wanted to make a little mini album of his gorgeous daughter (my darling niece, please see previous post).

I used the Kaisercraft Designer Star album, and don't you just love their Cocco range, such beautiful colours. I am not sure if I have mentioned it before, but I am addicted to Kaisercraft products. Love, love, love them.

Well that's all for today.

Thanks for visiting me.

Well that's it really. Just wanted to show off my little niece.

Thanks for stopping by.

Working Class Man Layout

Hi there.

I thought I would share with you this layout that I have done of my Dad. I love this photo of him, as it shows his strength but also the gentleness in his smile. I used the gorgeous Kaiser Rustic Charm papers as I thought they suited him perfectly. AnywayI have been so busy lately making OTP's that this layout was a bit of a nice change for me.

Thanks for taking the time to visit me.

Take care

Christmas Posie

I was sitting in my craft room, thinking that a Christmas decoration would look nice sitting on my desk. I really wanted to make something, and I thought a little Christmas posie would look nice. The scallop challenge over at Inkurable Stampers then got me thinking about making some little scallop flowers. These were really easy to make, and i ended up making the posie fairly quickly. Overall I think it turned out ok, although i think it might need some more foliage (or space fillers).

Thanks for looking

Secret Santa

On the weekend i sent off my Secret Santa gift for one of the ladies at 123 scrapbook. I wanted to make her something special, and i thought some Inspirational Quote cards would be a lovely idea. Well Teina received her pressie yesterday and she was absolutely delighted with them. So I thought I would share what i had made for her with all you wonderful people.

The cards are made out of Jumbo Playing Cards. They are decorated with various things, but the main papers used were the divine K & Company papers.

I particularly love that last quote.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope I have inspired you even just a little bit.

Take care
