Some cards...

for you today. These have been published in a few of this years issues of Cardmaking, Stamping and Papercraft.

Valentines theme...


Lime and blue colour combo article...



and that is it for now.
I am off to take my little man to music class, hang out some more washing which is proving rather useless as dark clouds start to gather, and stop procrastinating about the two huge baskets of ironing.
Have a good weekend....oh, and if you haven't already checked out this months Studio Calico kits and the amazing work of their DT then head here. Sad, I know, but reveal day over there is my favourite time of the month...lol.

Postcard

from Lake Cathie (pronounced Cat-eye). This is where I spent my childhood holidays and in March my sister's family where up there for a week. So whilst hubby was working, my mum and myself took the kids and went knocking on the door of their holiday rental. It was short but fun and I think I took close to 700 photos in 2 days....blush ;). It was awesome to see the kids love it just like I did as a kid.
This brings me to this LO...oh what a struggle!!! I absolutely loved this weeks palette at The Color Room but the purple just drove me nuts...lol. Finally settled on this last night but it doesn't go into my fave pile...not by a long shot. But when it comes to scrapping I stick by my personal motto of 'once it's done, it's done.' I never go back and redo pages and trust me there are quite a few I would love to rip apart!!! But they show my journey...so I leave them alone.

Palette #3...

My take on it...


Thanks for the lovely comments last week girls!!!
Hugs.

Some days...

it is unbelievable how much my nephew and daughter are alike!!! The have the same temperament, the same silly facial expressions, they love to show off these weird and wonderful expressions together and the absolutely adore each other.


I used Creative Scrappers sketch #98...loving these sketches. My mojo took a short break and I have found that sketches have got me moving again. I also dove straight into my April Studio Calico kit. Oh how I love these kits. When Joyland first went up I was on the fence about it but once it arrived the ideas just started flowing and I am itching to get them all scrapped.

Also have found a new passion...make satin and chiffon flowers...I think I might need to give some away as my collection has got a bit ridiculous.
Thanks for stopping by.

Yep, I am

keeping it simple. I closed my last blog down due to personal reasons but I have found that I have limited myself when it comes to sharing my work for competitions and such. So I am back :).
No family chit chat, no boring little stories...I am just sharing my love for all things paper.

I was so happy to discover The Color Room...even though it bugs me that there is a spelling mistake in it...lol. Must be the teacher in me. The first colour palette inspired me so much I did two layouts and I have just finished this weeks palette...just need to add journalling and take a photo.

Here is the palette for week 1...


and my LO's for TCR #1.
