Here is another catch up layout again this is my daughter. Her very first overseas trip. Destination - Bali.
Zoe was only 2 years old when we decided to have a family holiday and went to Bali. So yes definitely catching up with layouts as she is now 14 years old. Oh well better late than never, I say.
We had a wonderful time, only down fall was Zoe ended up with a cold, which meant no water for her, so her ears could heal for the trip home. Yes we did visit a hospital while we were there for some antibiotics.
This was taken beside the pool, which I had to keep her out off. She is trying to put a frangapini in her hair.
Oh the memories of not only the photo but her age.
I decided to choose 5 sheets of paper. 3 Designer and 2 plain coloursto see what I could do with them.
After choosing my colours, I then decided to choose the photos to go on them, usually I do a layout before I choose the photo. Now with all that sitting on my craft desk, what do I do now? Hehe
I think I ended up going with a Theme, but didn't actually set out for that to happen. As you will see by the layouts below. So cut here, rip there, embellishment here, paint there, move this there, no over there, or maybe add this, take that piece away. Well you get the gist off it.
I always do my layouts first before sticking or painting. Once happy with the design, usually leave for an hour or two. Go and do something else come back change this, move that, until it hits me. Yep that is what I want. Then I do the painting and sticking.
The 3 layouts I have to show you today. I managed to do one for each of my 3 kids albums.
Just thought I would share my husband's quote.
"What are doing with all these, are you doing an album for the kids when they leave or something"
Gotta love that. I just looked at him and said, seriously how long have I been doing crafts and you only just ask this now!
Yes Dear I have 2 albums so far for each of them, School Days and Everyday Life.
Reply: Thats nice and off he goes!
Anyway hope that gave you all a laugh like it did me.
Here are the layouts
Above is the layout for my eldest Son (Travis). A day out in the country when the kids where only little.
This one is for my daughter (Zoe). Another day out in the four wheel drive, ending up where ever we end up for a sausage sizzle lunch. Good Job Zoe cooking us lunch.
This one is Bryden's. Another day out four wheelin. Don't you just love those drives where you never know where you are going to end up.
So as you can probably see, my Theme ended up being abit country, outdoors, but I am happy with all three layouts.
Thought it was time for another post. With the school holidays here it has been abit hard to sit down and do some projects, but managed to get a whole day free yesterday, just me myself and I. So I sat down and got some projects done. I made two layouts for a challenge and 2 quick layouts of my youngest son. Even managed to do a copy cat paper clip that is in the new catalogue.
So here are the layouts of my son. If you need a really quick layout, don't go past the kits that you can buy.
Like how these came together and in like only half an hour instead of the many hours I usually take.
Ok ladies, thought I would just drop by and let you all know that I have been abit quiet here lately but that is only because I am at my craft desk creating.
I have been working on some projects and hopefully will get a class up and running after the school holidays.
In the meantime why don't you leave me a comment about what inspires you.
Funny enough most of my ideas, come from when I am trying to go to sleep. My brain seems to think its time to place an embellishment there, no maybe over there oh yeah and don't forget the flower here, now I might just change that colour with that one oh no stay with the first colour. Does this sound like you then leave a comment and let me know. Interested also in how long it might take you to do a card or layout. I have just managed to do a card and it took me 1 1/2 hours, and I still haven't stuck it down. Tomorrow will do that, probably just after I make a few changes. I can feel a prize draw for this. So if you leave me a comment on what inspires you, I will do a random draw for a winner.
Well I would just like to say a very big thank you to the Ladies that did pop by and have ago at my little competition. If you did have a look maybe next time you could join in the fun and leave a comment. Never know it could of been you.
Firstly I will pop the pictures up of the finished product and then I will announce the winner.
I did have fun making this project, a little messy but what's a little mess when you having fun, I say!
Well as you can all see its a Card. (hehe)
A closer look at the details
Another angle at the finished Card.
drum roll please
Well I am very sorry but nobody guessed it correctly. Mmm now according to the replies looks like you Ladies are all hoping for An Off the Page project.
Thank you all very much for playing along I had some giggles along the way. Might have to do this again.
