Amazing Savarna

My most gorgeous great niece when we visited recently 😍

This is the first page that I've completed from The Paper Teapot's April Scrapbook kit...plenty left for a few more pages yet!
There are some really beautiful papers in it - check it out here!
I also tried out the new Tim Holtz Distress Oxides - likey, likey!!!

Being Boho

I love this new collection from Kaisercraft, "Wildflower"! So many butterflies, such a dreamy feel! (and you can get it here from The Paper Teapot!)

I made this page for the March Scrap Our Stash sketch challenge - here's the sketch - 

and for the word "Charm", I used

C - Close to my Heart watercolours
H - Hearts
A - Acetate word
R - Ribbon
M - Mica Powder, Martha Stewart punch

Shiloh was a school friend's birthday party, and the theme was Bohemian  - what a great idea! I think the whole thing just looks so dreamy 😍

You make me so proud

Hello scrappers!

I've made this page with the magnificent Magnolia Jane collection from Heidi Swapp (available at The Paper Teapot) for the March Zebra challenge.

I couldn't get past the influence of black and white, plus stripes - so this is what I came up with!

I also used one of the new Tim Holtz stencils, I love these cute little stencils, so easy to use and they don't take up much room at crops 😉

The photo was at Breanna's graduation from High School, which she achieved with merit (meaning she received a year 13 subject prize also). 

I just couldn't be more proud of this kid and her achievements!

They call me The Dinosaur Expert

Hi all,

 Just popping in to inspire you for the current Scrap Our Stash Tic Tac Toe challenge :)
My nephew can recite every dinosaur name that I've ever heard plus a fair few that I haven't - so awesome!

 I've been holding back this paper until I had some photos of him to scrap - it's Crate Paper Cool Kid, and I also completed my line by using a flair and mini-alphas.
Love that there are so many different ways to complete these challenges!
Here's a look at the Tic Tac Toe

Thanks for looking!

I was at a bit of a loss as to how to document the place we stayed while we were in Anaheim so I ended up grabbing my Shimelle Go Now Go and just seeing what happened! I started off scraplifting Becky Stidham from Paper Issues but then things just evolved - as they do, and I was quite happy with it in the end.

The Hotel was called Castle Inn and Suites by the way, and although it wasn't your normal tourist place, the location was great, so close to Disney; it was clean, and comfortable. The girls weren't that impressed with sharing the same room as us but we were only there to sleep, way too busy out and about every day!
