March Challenge at D-Lish Scraps

Well hello there

So it's been a long time coming, I haven't had the opportunity to do any crafting for over 6 months and finally got the chance over the Easter Long Weekend but not until Monday. I had everything that I wanted to use out for a couple of weeks so I was prepared.

As all of my friends out there in blogger world now we lost our beautiful Checkers in November last year which was a terrible loss but we have now rescued two beautiful sister cats who where given a really tuff start in life being thrown away in a plastic bag with their other 4 siblings at the age of two weeks old.

My first layout for the year is of them, their names are Sooty (black & white) and Cinnamon (ginger, grey & white).

I've used the monthly inspiration board and sketch at D-Lish Scraps as this always makes it easier to get started and I'm trying to find my mojo again. I was very lucky to have been invited to send in some of my crochet mini pennants to be used in this months kit, I'm very proud and hope that everyone liked them.


I had a lot of fun creating again and I'm looking forward to spending a lot more time back in my craft room and hopefully back on the copic's as well.

Here is my take on this month's challenge.


Hope everyone had a Happy Easter but now it's back to the grind stone.

Happy Crafting.

Monthly Challenge at D'Lish

Good morning

So this is going to be a very quick post as I've got lots to get done today, so this is my entry into this months challenge over at D'Lish it was an interest colour combo one which I found a little difficult to get done.

and this is my take on the above
So I hope everyone enjoyed this challenge as much as I did, I must so though it's a layout I'm not real happy with but everyone else I've shown seems to like.
Happy crafting

Monthly Challenge at D'Lish

Well hello there

It's been quiet a few months since I've been around and it's also the first time in 3 months I've actually been able to get into my craft room due to illness in the family on and off since I started holidays at the end of April. So I finally managed to get to a challenge & I'm just getting it uploaded in time.

I always love the challenges over at D'lish and unfortunately this month I missed out by minutes on obtaining the kit, however I did manage to purchase a couple of things and use them on this layout.

This was the sketch and mood board

and this is my interpretation.
So that's me for tonight, I'm actually got some sort of sinus infection and I've almost lost my voice so it's off to the Dr's after work tomorrow to hopefully get something to get me back on my feet. Thankfully I've been able to work as I haven't felt sick.
Nighty Nite and happy crafting.

Stuck?! Sketches April challenge

So back again as I said I would, this time to upload my layout for the challenge over at Stuck?! Sketches.

So this was the sketch to use

and this is my take on it, I had these photo's of myself and my nephew from December 2014 and wanted to use them as I'd already scrapped a layout with my niece from the same night.
So that's it for me today, I'm outta here as I need to have a shower, wash the towels and cook dinner before heading out to bingo tonight with mum. Just hoping our backs will hold out as mum hurt her's yesterday in the garden and mines aching from cleaning at work today. Bugger
Have a great week everyone and happy creating.

Aztec challenge @ D-lish Scraps

Good afternoon

I hope everyone had a safe and happy Easter, boy I can't believe it's been and gone already just like Christmas did. So I was lucky enough to have 3 days off so I got creative on Sunday & Monday and managed to get quiet a few challenges completed.

Back to work today but thought as I finished at 1pm I'd get back into my craft room and get these finished challenges uploaded.

So this was the sketch and mood board that we had to use over at D-lish Scraps

and this is my take on it
So this is something completely out of the box for me both with colour choice and design but I don't think it turned out too bad.
That's it for me for this post, back soon with another challenge entry to upload.

Shabby Chic challenge at All Dressed Up


So here we are already in the beginning of April, boy where has it gone yet again?????

Well I've had a creative weekend this weekend, and it really helped having three days off. We've had a few family dramas over the last week but they are finally sorting them self out (I hope).

I had a wedding card ordered which had to be done before May so I thought this challenge was appropriate so I went online and purchased this beautiful Bride & Groom stamp, was a good excuse to buy a new wedding stamp too.

I will admit I like colouring wedding images as there isn't too much to do with the bride but the groom can certainly be a challenge.

This challenge is run over on their Facebook page, here is the link if you'd like to participate All Dressed Up.

So here is my card

I just love the way the colours work in this card and I generally only use pink in wedding cards as it isn't a fav of mine I'm more the blue/green/teal etc type of person.
The products I've used are
All Dress Up digi stamp
Bearly Mine Designs pp's (shop now closed)
I Am Roses flowers
Stampendous embossing powder
Robins Nest dew drops
Marianne Designs, Joy Crafts & Spellbinder Dies
Cremen Creations stamens, lace & metal photo corner
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges
All Dressed Up - Shabby Chic
Crafty Catz - Anything Goes
Crafting By Designs - Anything Goes
So that's it for me for this challenge, will be back shortly to upload a few more posts due to getting through some challenges, cards & scrappin.
Enjoy the rest of your Easter break.

Monthly Challenge @ D-lish Scraps

So I missed last months challenges with being busy at work and also having a couple of short trips up to Port Macquarie to break the routine.

So when I saw the little kit for this months challenge over at D-lish Scraps I couldn't help myself but to order it and give the challenge a go and I must say I'm really happy with the results. I had to dig around my external hard drive to find all my old photo's and came across some from our 10th Wedding Anniversary which was now 4 years ago. So this was the challenge sketch and colour theme

I had been wanting to do something with yellow since I bough one of the new Kaiser paper ranges last month in Port. I really wanted a photo of myself in my funky yellow pants but have yet to get one but there is still plenty of paper left over so I'm still striving to get that photo.
So here is my take on the challenge
I did have a couple of extra close ups but my sim card is playing up in my computer and I have to manually take them off it as it's not automatically downloading.
It's certainly something a little different but I'm happy with it, I'm also pleased to have used one of my own crochet creations with the little mini pennants.
Happy crafting
