Most Wanted at CSI

Super excited to have made the Most Wanted list at CSI this week!

This was my layout which can be viewed here in the CSI gallery.

These photos are so typical of Joe each time I try to get a serious shot of him!
I created the background on grey cardstock using gesso and then a Crafter's Workshop stencil, quite pleased with the effect it created.
Drop by CSI and check out the fabulous boards Debbi puts together each week. They are sure to ignite your creativity!!

July Challenge at Scrapboutique

I have a terrible habit of buying ALL of the die-cuts, tags, stickers and labels to go with a paper range and then find that I never use them all.
SO this month at SCRAPBOUTIQUE we are challenging you to use at least 4 (but more would be fabulous) of these items on a layout.
I have used 8 of the die-cuts from this awesome Kaisercraft pack which Chels has in store plus I also used a transparency and some of the stickers. Can I tell you there are still oodles of die-cuts left in the packet, it is great value for money!!
I'd love you to come and join us!

CyberCrop at Scrapboutique

Just a few layouts I made for the weekend CyberCrop at Scrapboutique.
The theme was School (Holi)Days to mark the start of the school holidays here in NSW!
The first layout was for Chelsea's challenge to use the quote from the Cat Stevens song 'Remember the Days of the old school yard, we used to laugh a lot'. Haven't been able to get the song out of my head since!!

I also did Leanne's challenge to scrap about a holiday first. I have just returned from a retreat at the beautiful Noonaweena conference centre and as it was my first retreat to this location I decided it was the perfect topic. We had the most wonderful weekend and I will post some layout shares soon. Can't wait to go back next year!
I used the Amy Tangerine line and although it is far from my usual colour choice I am happy with the way it turned out.
Thanks for dropping by!
