Couldn't believe this photo of my brother at a recent murder mystery night - it's so him! Right down to the Disorderly Conduct charge 😆😆😆

I'm entering this page into the current Stuck?! sketch challenge - I love these sketches 💓

Here's the page....
And here's the challenge...
Make sure you have a go too!

Every Picture...

So this story was of Breanna and her Book Week costume back in 2010.
I think she made a great Nancy Drew! 

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

 I chose the left hand column - the Fancy Pants paper is from the Joy Parade collection, the arrow clip is from Ikea, and the cork chevrons have been whitewashed to better suit the page.

Thanks for looking!

Nothing like jumping off a bridge to get the blood pumping!

Or so they tell me, I'm sure not going to be trying it any time soon 😅😅😅

However Breanna was dead keen to try, so we shouted her for her birthday a couple of years ago.

This page is for The Paper Teapot August challenge, to use a large title. I think this counted 😉

I used Kaisercraft Factory 42 available here, and my fave Deep Water Colourblast paste.

Thanks for looking!

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!


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...

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!
