Imagine the Beauty - Believe in the Strength

Hey There,

It's been such a long time since my last blog, I thought I may have forgotten how to do it!
Let alone how to scrapbook.

Some of you may not know that I have been studying,
and my scrapbooking was pushed aside for a little while.

But now, I am free.
And it is school holidays.

So why not enter some challenges?

The first I would like to share has been a work in progress.

I decided to enter the Once Upon A Sketch Challenge.
It is my first time entering this challenge.
Here is the sketch:


Here is my take on the sketch:


You are free to interpret our theme ANY WAY you like. Whilst the theme is open, you MUST base it on the sketch below and include your HANDWRITTEN journalling ON YOUR PAGE. Acceptable journalling is MORE than just a sentence, or generic writing such as date/place etc. It needs to be present and at least 3 lines long.

Here are some close-ups:



I just love all the colors in this Prima Range - Free Spirit.


Aren't these flowers so pretty!


Loads of layers on this layout.


The pictures in this layout have been taken by Tess G Photography.
And the model is my sister in law Katrina.
She is stunning and would look amazing in a potato sack!!


I got to have a play with my Shimmerz - Inkglinz collection.
I am in love with them!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!!

Our Boy

Hi There,

Today I wanted to share with you another challenge that I entered this week.
I absolutely love CSI challenges.  They get the creative juices flowing.

Here is the challenge:


I would not have usually used these colors, but that is exactly what the 
challenges are about!

Here is my take on the challenge:


So happy with how this turned out.
The colors go so well together.

Here are some close-ups:


The background paper is from the Kaisercraft Base Coat Collection.


I really enjoyed getting grungy.  I used the Prima Bloom Sprays for the first time and I was
super impressed with the coverage.


I got to use the new Georgia Heald Stamp - Zips.  I had been dying to play with it.


Lots of stamps used on this layout.


The journalling is tucked behind the picture.
I journalled in the form of a quiz.
I asked Lucas a heap of questions.
And he gave me his answers.
Like how I am his only girlfriend.
How cute is that!!!

Thank you so much for stopping by!

We Just Clicked

Hello Friends,

Here a layout I have made using the Scrappy Chat Designs May Kit Release.

This layout I made with two inspirations.
This photo was taken in Gladstone last year.
I got to meet Stacey Young.  I have been a big fan of her work.
But the bonus was, that she was an amazing person as well.

The other inspiration was Fiona Paltridge.
She uses watercolors in a lot in her layouts.
I watched a video of hers and I wanted to give it a try.

Here is my layout:
