Family fun .....

I just finished this layout with Toni's Licorice Allsorts kit. This is my DH with his daughter and her 3 children at the Brisbane Airport 2 years ago.

A very quick LO for my niece

A quick page for my niece who loves seeing herself (as most kids do). I used the Sweet Valentine kit from Sweet Blossoms.

Check out the new challenge blog Scrappers Block. Looks like a great new blog ... might help with the 'block' that we all get sometimes. The first challenge looks interesting.

We have had 3 new babies in the family in the last month ... this is my great grandson Isaac.
I used paper and elements from Saras new Dreamland kit from Sweet Blossoms, and Beach Overlay from Valerie Randall at Scrap girls.
Edited to add ...

My Beautiful Mother

Just finished this one of my mum ... this was taken about 50 years ago. She used to grow gladiolis to perfection and she is holding one.
Most of this was done with Spring is in the Air from Sweet Blossoms.

A new green lawn

My resize program says this file is too large to resize so I will see if I can upload it as it is on here.
Paper is my creation, I texturized a white sheet of paper and used brushes at the top and a style on the bottom, then used an overlay from Ursula Schneider at Scrap Girls. Fonts are Windows fonts, I added a green glass style to New and a green glitter style to green. The wire frame is a freebie from the Bee Happy kit at Sweet Blossoms. I think thats it.

My latest digi page ... I love hibiscus flowers almost as much as plumeria. Can't remember this ones name unfortunately.
I used pp and journal frame from Bee Happy freebie from Sweet Blossoms, title treatment is from a tutorial from Photoshop 911.

A paper LO .....

Thought it was time I uploaded a paper layout ... I've been having much too much fun with the digi stuff and learning heaps. For anyone who is interested, I can thoroughly recommend Andrea Golds classes at Go Digital Scrapbooking.

Anyway, back to the subject ... this one is my mum and dad not long before we lost him to cancer. I did it for Maria's challenge on Hybrid Designs Scrapbooking.

I have used Bazzil CS, Heidi Grace pp cut into strips, flourish cut from white Bazzil with a Quikutz die, Kaiser bling and flowers, photocorner and bookplate from a sizzix die and the 'together' is a cheapo sticker. Journal block is from a swap, made by Maree G, Hybrid member.

In the Jungle ....

Well, not quite a jungle yet, but hopefully in the future ... . I've been trying a few new techniques lately, this one was matting the title letters. Unfortunately, the paper I chose simple looks like an outline, but at least it worked.This page is from a kit from Sweet Blossoms store Scrap that Idea. Sara from Sweet Blossoms is sponsoring this months challenge at the new Digi-Chicks Challenge Blog so make sure you pop in and have a look.
