Destination: Bali

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.

Thanks for looking

My First Bike

Yes I have been busy.  I have been doing some more catch up of my layouts of my children.  This one is of my Daughter and her first bike.

I have done some fuzzy cutting for this layout.  Yuk I here you say, yes some of us don't like fuzzy cutting but I do.

Here is the layout.

 Thanks for stopping by

The mind boggles.

Think you know what this is, leave a comment below.  Maybe just maybe I will draw a random comment for a prize..
 Any one can have ago.

Have you worked it out yet.  Don't forget to leave your suggestion in the comments.

Oh I do love a Mystery... hehehe

Have fun guessing


A card

This post is for a quick card I made.  The inspiration for this card came from a layout I have done recently.  Will post the layout soon.

 Thanks for looking


I have been crafting

Well ladies thought it was time to pop in and do some posts.  Although my blog has been quiet, I haven't as I have still been crafting.

I have managed to get some personal layouts done, as well as prepared for 3 classes that I have coming up.

So for my first reveal, I did 2 layouts the same as I wanted one for my Eldest Son and one for my Youngest Son.

 This is of my Son Travis

 This one is of Bryden.

Its abit hard to see but the circle pieces have words or sayings that relate to both of my sons.

The next one is of Bryden again,t his is another time that he is either pulling things apart or putting things together.  The little handyman is my boy.

This was a very quick layout and really fun, as the colours are just so vibrant.
"Can We Fix It" oh yes I think he can.

The Shed

Well I have finally got a chance to upload another project that I managed to do.  I did this one for Fathers Day.

As you may be aware Our Shed is a common room in our house and thought it needed some crafty pieces as well.

This is an altered canvas.

 This is the finished project.
 A close up of the rusty screws.
 A close up of the bottles.

Had a lot of fun and a very messy desk while doing this but I am very pleased with the way it turned out.

5 sheets of 12" x 12" Paper

As the title says.  

I decided to choose 5 sheets of paper.  3 Designer and 2 plain colours to 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 thatI 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.

Thanks for stopping by


Shadow Box

Well I managed to get some crafting done yesterday so thought I would drop in put up some posts for you all to have a look at what I have been up to.

I did this layout a while ago but decided I wanted a frame for it, so I decorated the shadow box and just quietly very pleased with it.

The above picture is the finished box.  This is a picture of my Mum and Dad.

 A close up of the flower and cogs cluster along the bottom corner.
 And these are the cogs on the top right hand corner.  I have used the rusting powder on these chipboard pieces, as I just love this stuff at the moment.

2 Layouts for a challenge

I decided I would take part in a couple of challenges this week and one was a Sketch and the other was to use Hexagons and Twine.
Here are the finished layouts
 The above layout was for the Hexagon and Twine challenge.  I just love this photo of my daughter.

 and this one is for the Sketch challenge.
Thanks for stopping by



Well due to being home alone again last night and the TV was just boring, I sat down at my craft desk and came up with this layout.

This photo was taken back in 2009 and it is such a favorite of mine.

 This is the finished layout.
 This is my cluster of handmade flowers.
 Mmmm I wonder how I got this colour combination.
 I do agree with my title.  Sometimes moments like these are hard to come by so they are Priceless.

Thanks for stopping by and hope you like my layout.
Might have to get bored some more.  lol

Thanks for stopping by

2 quick 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.

Finished card

Recently I gave you a sneak peak of a card I was in the middle of creating.  So I thought I would show you the end result.

You have waited so long anyway so here it is.

I have used some chipboard pieces and embossed it to give it the rustic look also used SU Stamp Set Country side to stamp my Ute and just coloured it in with markers.

I think it makes for a great Male card or even one for Grandpa.

Thanks for stopping by and come back again soon for another reveal.

What Inspires you

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.

I will post pictures when they are finished.

So come back again real soon.

Thanks for a great morning.  Can't wait for the next one.  Working on it as I type.  Gee I'm good I can do two things at once.

Playing in the Dirt

Well I managed to get another photo of my youngest Son put on a layout.  This one is of him and his gokart.  He loves racing, but mostly I think he just loves getting dirty.

I kept this one simple and let the chipboard do the talking.

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope by visiting my blog I have given you some inspiration.
