Websters Pages

I never mention the weather because hey there is better things to chat about, but seriously the weather that we have been experiencing has been super crazy. One day Summer heat, the next cold, windy and  pouring rain. Winter clothes then summer clothes, it's driving me crazy.

Ok with that being said here are two layouts that I taught as classes over at Scraploot, both featuring "Websters Pages" paper. Both layouts have alot of depth (that really can't be seen on the pics, but trust me alot of mounting foam was used).

I have used this Picture on a previous layout, but my niece  is so super cute a had to use it again.The design for this layout is fully credited to Sue from Scraploot, thanks :)

Websters papers are just gorgeous to work with, beautiful colours and great elements within all the papers. My darling nephew on Birth holding onto my finger...This is definately one of my all time favourite pictures.

Lots of Layouts

I had a Fabulous Weekend, catching up with friends, spending time with the Munchkins (lots of playing, painting and chasings) and as a bonus going on a ride on the back of a Harley...

Yes....I know I said that I was going to upload each day for a week, but lots of things came up, busy end to the week...sorry :) . So here are three layouts that I completed awhile ago.

I just Love this photo of my Niece, I wanted to create a soft shabby chic look to the layout, with some girlie touches of Lace, Velvet and Beads....not forgetting tiny sead pearls.

A Chilly Winters Day, a warm vest and a Scooter. My Nephew loves has scooter and whenever he gets the opportunity his glued to it.Up and down the driveway, and as his getting older the speed is increasing.Fingers crossed no falls yet.

I love the everyday moments, my mum and niece tucking into a large bowl of Spagetti Bolognese. Definately a Favourite Meal.

Delight in Life

My Gorgeous Little Niece on her 3rd Birthday, thoroughly enjoying her Freckled Krispy Kreme Donut.

I saw the idea of the pleated skirt on a layout over at was such a cool idea that I had to use it ( sorry can't remember who the designer  was)...and the bright colours of the papers matched the freckles on the Donut perfectly.The little Journalling Booklet wrapped in Organza ribbon also contains 6 other photos and some written memories of the day.

Gotta Love Those Smiles

My Favourite Two Little Boys, playing together and never apart.

When this range came out I knew it was perfect for this photo.I little different for me...hahaha no inking, but I did pen-in a running stitch line around all the elements (it highlighted them so nicely). I also did some hand stitching on the little hills, and alot of magic mount to give height and depth to all the different elements.

A Letter to Mum

Back in May I was asked to do a Class Layout for Mothers Day, after much thought I designed one which enabled me to write a letter to my own Mum. As I have written before, My Mum has faced alot of hurdles and saddness in her life, but her strength, determination and love for children kept her striving to do whatever she could for us. The Photo  is not one of my Mums favourites, but it was the only one I had with her at Christmas.

This one is for you Mum...Love You.

I have used an older range of Prima papers  and cards  (I wrote my letter on the cards after taking a photo of the Layout).On the chipboard Bird /Flower Spray I covered the Bird with paper, inked the rest in various ink colours then applied Crackle Glossy accents, which gave it a nice earthy look. .

Bedtime Take 2

Since yesterdays theme was Bedtime, I thought I would share another layout that had a photo of the kids when they were getting ready for bed. I have used Basic Grey Papers, Prima Crystal Swirls and a Chipboard Word Frame .The Layout has been based on a Beggahunna Sketch.

Getting Ready for Bed

There is nothing sweeter then Kids getting into their PJ's, all snuggly and warm. Whenever the Munchkins come over for a sleep over, at every opportunity my camera comes out to take those every day moments.

Here I have used a range from Basic Grey and a sketch from Creative Scrappers. My niece loves having her photo cute.

This range of papers from Daisy Bucket was perfect for this photo...I have used red felt strips to tie in with the colour of my nephews dressing gown.
