The craft continues:

I am not sure where the burst of energy came from..But I got scrappy again today..And I might add i,t was a much more pleasurable event - I CLEANED MY SPACE - you heard it here...I have given the space a complete overhaul..I can even get to the sewing machine..And I didn't even sew..Ah well....
Anyway here's what I created in CLEAN:

Using the word Summer...I have had these photo's for AGES and have been dying to scrap them.. And this layout came together really easily..Probably because I could put my hand on whatever I wanted..I even sorted the stamps. which was awesome..I found lots that I had forgotten I even had..I think these big circles are Kaisercraft? I hadn't even opened them!


Well that's my take on the sketch...I love a good Studio Calico Classic patterned paper background..So versatile...Haven't done bunting in a while?? So why not do 2 threads?? More the merrier I say! And I looove the big numbers by Prima..I want one on every layout!

These photos are classic. In the first one my little man was playing it up for the camera - as he knows is expected of him (hehehe)..But Will..Bless him doesn't play by those rules! In the second photo - Rylan is giving him 'the look'...Telling him to get with the program and start laying on the charm for the chick with the big black camera in front of you?? Don't you get it?? I adore these photos...

The challenge this month over at Kraft it Up was to use misting creatively.

Whoa? Really? My kind of challenge baby! So I got my mists out and went for it! I have used masking and normal spraying.. And I have misted book paper in various colour's and made bunting from them. Got noice and messy...

I used another Page Drafts sketch to boost my mojo with this one too...The photos are from Summer time in Kennett River..This is the first time my girls have let those god-damned birds land on them and we have been going there for at least four years! I had to get photos of that!

Thanks for looking.. Just made it at the end of the month..Phew...

  5. Hi Celeste. You really have had a productive phase. Love all of your layouts . It is lovely to see your family growing up through your pages. Their personalities and love and caring for each other really shows and is recorded for the future. This is the reason why we scrap. I still remember you coming into the scrapping shop with two delightful litle twins and now Milla is that age. Who would have thought?
    Cheers. Heather B.
