wicked princesses at home retreat

some of the wicked princesses went on a retreat and those that stayed at home got to do some  at home challanges.this is what i completed.....
challenge #1 was to base a layout on this sketch so this is my take on it.

and i have no idea why it has come up sideward but there you go!!
i love this sketch so i didnt change it much. its bo bunny paper-abbey rd. leftovers from a kit i got from wicked princesses.
challenge #2    Create a layout theat is
~ in neutral toned combo browns and cream, black and white........ and add one colour.
~ Use a single photo of a friend (could be partner, mum etc someone you are close to)
~ you must include at least 3 different patterned papers
~ flowers
~ bling
~ your title should include one of these words....friend, love or happy
so this is my example
and again its come up sidewards...if you can tell me why i can change it!!!
i love this photo of hubby and i taken at my sisters wedding in dec 2010. we dont get dressed up and go out much so i really love this photo.

and challenge #3

Create a layout using the following items....

~ 1 circle (I used and extra PP for this)
~ 2 different coloured cardstocks
~ 3 different patterned papers
~ 4 photos

You may add as many extras on top of this...... but you must contain the above items
this is my example
MME-abbey rd paper. oh that cluster i love and it took me over an hour....haha
clustering is something im yet to perfect but i feel very happy with what i have achieved in this page.
i really wanted a coffee stained doilie but was too scared to do one myself but im going to give it a go tonight.
might try some other colours too IF it works out and of course i will show you my results.

being the first of june today all my favourite scrap sites ahve bought out new challenges so as i do them i will upload them to show you all. thanks for reading my long post!!

i loved these photos of my son and i and i really love the simplicity of the layout too.
i inked everything in green as we were rolling in the grass. these papers are older but i still love them.
they are fancy pants -like father like son.
hoping to get alot of scrapping done on the weekend with the retreat at home WICKED PIRNCESS is having. unfortunaltey i didnt get their kit like the people on the retreat will get as i didnt read that post :( but will play along with my own papers. will upload any pages i do on sunday night.
hope you like my page.

busy fortnight

hello and sorry i havent posted on here...
i have had a busy fortnight of scrapping with me getting sick and my little baby boy cutting 4 molars all at once :(   but here is what i have managed to achieve. i recieved my gorgeous two kits from WICKED PRINCESSES and loved working with them. it was paper i hadnt seen before although it was old stock but i guess that is what you get for not having a scrapbooking shop around. i have also used TCR sketch for a few of them and CREATIVE SCRAPPERS sketches.

new website

i have just put an order in for a new website (wicked princesses) i have found which do kits. and for me the idea of a kit is fantastic...paper and embellishments that match as over the internet colour look like they go together but when you recieve them they don't which is so frustrating. i cant wait to receive them and have a play.

i was so happy with this page i completed today. Its a challenge for Tthe color room
trying new techniques all the time that i find on great websites like this is great for me as i dont have a scrapbooking shop where i am. i hope my two sisters dont mind this cheeky photo as there were so many other stunning photos from the photographer that night.

my very first post

oh this is exciting....i set it up all by myself!!

thought i would start my new blog with one of my favourite pages...probably cos its such a gorgeous photo
feel free to leave comments on any of my work.
thanks for looking

home is where the heart is
