Seaside Range Scrapped !

Yesterday I popped in store and couldn't go past Kaiser's new Seaside range ! Got straight to scrappin last night and created this LO using it and also core'dinations Rustic. Thought I'd go out of my comfort zone on this one and actually took to the needle and threat : ) loved the effect, a little time consuming but definitely worth the effort !! I have also used vintage photo and spiced marmalade distress inks.

Thought I'd share ...

I am guilty of not actually producing much lately, but always seem to be stocking up lol !!
So, I decided to have a go at a sketch that inspired me at 'Flourish with a Bling', which we just happen to stock at Abundantias Gold !! I used the Grace Black Pearl Flourish, I have also used My Little Shoe Box, all a flutter & flying high papers, and also Fancy Pants Road Show Alpha Stickers and some lovely flowers found in store !

I have been going through some older photo's lately and found these great pics of my son Brayden now 10 and I from 2003, when we were lucky enough to live in South East QLD !

Thanks for stopping by for a look : )

Candy Lane - Birthday Girl Layout

Hey Ladies, Thought I'd share a page I've done recently using the very cute 'Candy Lane' range from Kaisercraft. This sweet little girl is my niece 'Ruby' on her first birthday. Being a mother of 3 boys and an aunt to 5 nephews, I enjoy doing 'girly' pages of ruby, when ever I get the chance : )

Thanks for looking !! Hope to see you in-store or on-line soon ...
