Lucky to have good friends

These photos were taken at one of our favourite playgrounds on Shiloh's birthday. She's had the same friends since she was little and I think they will always be her besties 😁

This page was for the Scrap Our Stash January sketch challenge - 

You also must include something starting with each letter from G-O-A-L-S, my list is
G - Geotag (love these by Charm Creations!)
O - Orange
A - Arrows and Amy Tangerine
L - Letter stickers and layers
S - Stickers, stencil

I bought one sheet of this orange Bella Blvd paper and the stickers, and couldn't wait to use it as it's so bright and lovely! Apart from that there's a Cocoa Vanilla flair, and some Amy Tan stickers. The background was done with Tim Holtz Distress crayons and Prima light paste.

Thanks for the look!

(Not so) Formal

This one's going back to Breanna's first Burnside High formal in 2015.

The photo is of their "squad" - basically a loose group of friends that has grown over time.

 A couple of close ups...

This page was made for The Paper Teapot January 17 challenge. 
99% of what I used is from the Cocoa Vanilla range "Make A Wish". It's kinda themed for birthdays, but I have yet to use it for that 😜
The background color was done with a combination of Prima watercolour pastels, and Tim Holtz Distress crayons.
I'm channeling Missy Whidden again with all the thread lol.
The only non- CVS item is the little wooden frame.

Give the challenge a go!

Young Wild & Free

This was taken when these 4 girls last got together back in July, up in Hanmer. They may not see each other that often, but when they do it's just as if they've never been apart.

This layout was made for the January Tic Tac Toe challenge at Scrap Our Stash.

Here's the challenge...

I used the bottom row - twine (on the button and tag), paper clips (gorgeous Paige Evans ones) and the colour blue (in the denim of ribbon and also in the background.

The background papers are also Paige Evans, the flair and woodie are from Cocoa Vanilla, the chipboard is from WOW, and the stickers are Simple Stories. I used Prima Watercolour pastels for the background, Tim Holtz crayons on the flower and there's also a 49 & Market stamp. The title is a Kaisercraft die.

I'm so happy with the way this one turned out!

Ho Ho Ho

And another Xmas layout - I'm on a roll!

This one is our Santa shot from 2012 - note Shiloh plus friend Shannon, no possibility of getting the sisters together for this any more!

I've used brads to make string art again, I love the look this gives!
The watercolour background, tree and prezzies are all done with Tim Holtz Distress crayons, and the paper and stickers are Oh Joy (AGAIN!) fro Pinkfresh. I don't have much of this left now!  Good old Bo Bunny Glitter Paste makes a return with the stencilling, and the cut file is from Paper Issues.
