These Girls Shine 

Layout number 3 this week - woo hoo! I'm hoping that my plan to print my photos at the end of each month will mean I scrap more - the fresher the memories are in my head, the more inclined I (hopefully) will be. Here is Tabitha with her bestie, off to their Wakakirri performance - they are a couple of crazy girls & so well suited to each other.

Materials used:

Cardstock: Kaisercraft, Bazzill
Paper: Kaisercraft My Year My Story - Raspberry, Heidi Swapp embossing folder, Distress Glitter - Picked Raspberry, Heidi Swapp mini stencil, Kaiser Mists - Denim, Colour Shine - Pink, Thickers - Jewelry Box

Thanks for having a look, Tanya X

Well, I must be on a roll! I have managed 2 layouts in 1 week - insert happy dance ;) This layout is for this month's challenge over at Scrap The Boys. I love the fact that I have both a boy & girls, so I can mix up my style according to how I feel. Sometimes, I want to get a bit grungy & sometimes, I want pink & flowers. As this challenge was a sketch, it was a bit easier to get my head around. I do find, however, that I tend to stick to the sketch & not deviate too much. Here, Jared is off to his first school camp with his best mates. I have hidden the journalling under the photo.

Materials used:

Cardstock: Bazzill
Paper: Kaisercraft Attitude
Embellishments: Crackle texture paste, Kaisercraft stencil, Dylusions ink spray - Melted Chocolate, Colour Shine - Gold, Bronzer, Distress Ink Spray - Forest Moss, Distress Ink - Frayed Burlap, random stamp, metal word plate, Sizzix dies, wood veneer word & embellishments, flair, brads, staples

Thanks for stopping by, Tanya X

At The Ballet

Well, it's been a while... sadly, I go through phases of creativity where for a few weeks I am on a roll, then all of a sudden there is nothing.. I had a 'need' to scrap & it was starting to frustrate me that nothing was coming to me whenever I sat down at my desk. I was determined to get my act together this week, and knew exactly where I should start. My awesome friend, Tania Ridgewell had showed me how to do a gorgeous mixed media canvas some time back, so I got it down from my shelf & let it inspire me to create this layout. I have made this for the White With 1 December challenge, the colour being Majorca Blue. Like every colour challenge, I pop into Google to get a good idea of what colour I need. However, Google did not know what this was...! I found a Hotel somewhere in the world with a similar name, but no Majorca. I just went with blue & came up with this. I personally love it! The fact that my daughter & Mum share the same blue eyes & their favourite colour is blue, made this the perfect photo to use.

Materials used:

Cardstock: Bazzill

Embellishments: Maya Road & Prima stencils, Crackle texture paste, Dylusions Ink Spray - London Blue, Colour Shine - Ocean, Kaiser Mists - Denim, WOW chipboard, Resin Rainbow embellishments, paper & fabric flowers, charm, Flair Studio flairs, pearl embellishments, Vintage Market alpha die, Dymo labeller
