Ice Bar

Man I loved this place! 

Absolutely everything was made of ice, including the tables, chairs and the glasses we drank our cocktails from 😁🍹


A bit of a different page for me - no mixed media AT ALL! (I made up for it later lol)

This is for the August Tic Tac Toe board...


I chose the bottom row - Emoji, Brads (more emojis) and Washi Tape.

Hope you like it!

Together - the best place to be

For Mother's Day this year we were in Auckland and I got this lovely photo of my sister in law and my niece. From six children Bronnie is the only girl 😁



I played along with Stuck?! Sketches here's the sketch for the second part of the month...


Most of the items used were from the May Hip Kit Club, plus one of my favourite hearts from Charm Creations.

Thanks for looking!

Beautiful

Just a photo I loved of Shiloh 💓


This was for the Scrap Our Stash July sketch challenge - 


The word for the month was "Fireworks", and I have used
F - Flowers
I - Ink
R - Ranger
E - Embossing powder
W - White, Wood veneer
O - Organza ribbon
R - Rhinestones
K - Kaisercraft
S - Staples

One in a Million

It's pretty darn hard to get a photo of my nephew Cohen, but it's worth persisting, because he's pretty darn cute!


This is for the Scrap Our Stash July Tic Tac Toe board, I was obviously influenced by Stars in the centre, but the line I actually used was the left hand column - Number, chipboard, Striped paper.
Here's the board...

Boom

While we were in LA last year, there was a compulsory stop at Universal Studios, and these photos were at the Water World action special FX show. Lots of explosions, fire and high speed!


This is for the June sketch challenge over at Scrap Our Stash - here's the sketch which I just turned on its side...

And the word for the month is "Summer", so this is what I used-
 
S - Stars, Stencil, Staples & Stickers
U - Uniball pen
M - Mousse (Nuvo)
M - Mambi puffy sticker
E - Enamel dots, Ephemera
R - Resin (star)

Super easy, super fast!

Always and Forever

I think that this just may be the first ever page I've made just of Mark - he's often in the group but he deserves one to himself after 32 years married I guess 😜


This page is for the Scrap Our Stash June Tic Tac Toe challenge





I chose the left column of Red, Camera and Wood. 

The grungy look of the page suits him lol - it's a mix of Kaisercraft Base Coat and Garage Days.

Gotta Laugh


Bre has gotten to be good mates with Coopah - partly because she lives so close to us  - but also because they have a lot in common. Coopah came up to Auckland with Bre to see Panic at the Disco, and she wasn't even going to see Guns n Roses with us but we convinced her it was the right thing to do 😆 This photo was at Bethells Beach - a great wee spot 💗


The page is for the Scrap Our Stash sketch challenge...

And the stash word to be used  is "Mother ".

I chose
M-My Minds Eye (the enamel dots and glasses)
O-Orange
T-Tissue, thread
H-Heart
E-Enamel Dots, Ephemera
R-Rubber Banner

This is all from the Cocoa Vanilla Wild at Heart range - available here

Be Impossible to Forget

My Hundredth post!!!

Well really - who could forget these characters??

And how many times would you get invited to a "Psychedelic Porn Party" ???

(My advice is don't google it to work out what to wear 😉)

Thanks to Simone for a great night, wonderful "slushies" and letting Dean And Wendy tag along with us so we wouldn't feel weird!

This page was done for The Paper Teapot May challenge, which was to be inspired by this photo

 And I used Bella Blvd Make our Mark collection available here, a Cuts2luv flair, and The Cut Shoppe cut file.

Have a go at this one - there's lots to inspire from this photo!

Explore

I really love this photo Shiloh took of Patch, and I knew when I saw it I wanted this page to look quite graphic. The only exception is the Charm Creation Heart and cat.


 This was made for the Scrap Our Stash May Tic Tac Toe challenge...

 
I used the left column - Journal card, Yellow and 4+ patterned papers. I love these acrylic words from Bella Boulevard!
