Seriously ...

29 March 2014

I had some instagram pics from one of our family evening's when we eat out. I am a bit sad Robin isn't in the photo but he didn't want his picture taken and I didn't want to force him. We waited a long time before taking them out to dinner because in the past it would usually end with tears. They are older and can keep themselves busy quietly while waiting for the meal. I got my March kit from Scraptastic out again. Just love those Amy Tangerine word thickers. 


A tutorial

28 March 2014

On Monday I had a tutorial on Shimelle's blog. Those of you who have been following me for a while know I love watercolour effects. I have used watercolours, gelatos, mists but for this tutorial I used Stabilo 68 pens. For the full tutorial hop over to Shimelle's blog and see my Watercolour Tutorial.
I used the March kits from Scraptastic kit club to created this layout.



27 March 2014

Just popping in to share a layout a made JUST FOR FUN, no assignment attached to it. I love creating for my DTs but just I love just creating for me. Playing around and not having to work with a certain theme or product. For this layout I used some Studio Calico Color Theory products and the March kit: Office Hours.

Some pink ...

25 March 2014

After having made a couple of really bright coloured layouts, I wanted to use some pink again. The first layout is for this week's Glitz Design Theme which is a colour combo:light pink, light blue, white and gold. I LOVE the softness of the layout and really think it works well with the photo of my little Elouan (well he's not so little any more), riding on his bike (no stabilisers/training wheels). He just loves to ride on the side walk and he can cycle like no other. It reminds me of when I was a kid. I used to have a BMX and loved riding on it. My father reminded me that I always said "I love to ride my bike on the road" (with a really strong South African accent). It is funny how memories I capture of my children, remind me of moments from my past. 

The second layout I created really quickly. I was inspired by the floral pattern of one of the patterned papers in the Office Hours kit from Studio Calico. I love the colours in the layout and think it is my new favourite. 

Scraptastic Sunday

23 March 2014

March is flying by and I can't believe April is just around the bend. The April kits from Scraptastic will be on their way soon (sneak at the end of the post!!!) so I'm trying to kill the March ones before they arrive. Here are three layouts I created using a combination of both kits and their add ons. I can't believe how many goodies there are in the kits. I have worked my way though the patterned papers but still have lots of embellishments left. 





Have a wonderful Sunday and Happy Scrapping.
