Things Are Looking Up!

Another page for a Hip Kit weekly sketch challenge 😁

I just knew I wanted to use the Vicki Boutin acrylics for my background, and I stuck fairly close to the sketch for the rest...
Love this little bunch 💓

So Happy Together

This is a just for fun page I made for a Hip Kit challenge - here's the sketch

And here's the layout

 The kids were such cuties back then, and used to love playing with Shenae and Jessie just down the road 💖

Magenta Hair - Dont Care

Bre is just like her Mum - I also remember dressing as Magenta, hers was to go to a Halloween party, and she even convinced her boyfriend at the time, Aaron, to dress as Riff Raff 😜

This is my last layout for the Scrap Our Stash Design Team, I'm sad to leave these lovely people but it's time to let someone else have a go, and to do something new myself also!

Here's the blend a sketch challenge...

I added the vertical element from the right sketch with Colourblast inks, and I also used the title placement from here. I used the photo size and placement from the left hand sketch. The stars are from Charm Creations - I just love them

Beautiful Child

This is my very first layout for Sketchabilities - I've always loved these sketches from Karan, and admired the designers, so I'm very honoured to be a part of the new team 💓

Here's my take on the sketch, some lovely smiley photos from a rare snow day here a few years ago...

I used 7Dots papers, Inks from Colourblast Australia, a heart from Charm Creations, and American Crafts letters.
Here's the sketch again...
 Take the time, give it a go!

Good Life

Hi I'm back again with a layout for the June Scrap Our Stash Golden Globe challenge.
This movie refers to a father and his son, so I thought since DH has only daughters, I would scrap a photo of them in their happy place They both love to bike, so this huge bike near Lake Taupo was the perfect spot.
I kept the page fairly simple, with just a few splashes of Colourblast ink at the end.
For the additional challenge, I used...
F = Flair, flower
A = Amy Tan, arrow
T = twine
H = heart
E = Epoxy stickers
R = Rub on

21 Renfrew Street

I found this great photo of the first house I lived in, my Dad built it straight after the war when size and material restrictions were still in place. So many memories of that place (both good and bad!) Sleepin in Mum and Dads room when I was sick, finding Santa presents under the bed in the spare room (oops) the toilet that the night cart used to pick up out in the outdoor wash house, and the yummy gooseberries growing out the back.

This page was also from the May kit from The Paper Teapot, along with a cut file from the Hip Kit which I coloured with Artist Inks from Colourblast Australia.

Just a quick page with my gorgeous little niece Leah 💖
 This was my 3rd layout from the May kit from The Paper Teapot, using lots of Pink Paislee and Bella Blvd, with a Cocoa Vanilla cut file.
