Well it's nice to be designing again for Tracy over at my2angels. I had taken a wee break after selling our business, completing my Masters and going up North to see my baby girl.
Tracy has got lots of new exciting stock in since then so make sure you pop over and check out her new charms as well as all her new yummy stock.
I have had the Prima Road Trip Collection for a little while and I could not wait to get my hands on them as the papers are so cute. My son and husband think this is a pretty cool layout... obviously because it is a boy layout and not a pink girly one LOL

I have used the cool Scrapware White Corroboard letters and combined them with the Scrapware Chipboard Large Impact Alphas. I have just left them raw and then used my favorite black pen and drawn some stitches on them.

I have used the cute Green Felt Embossed star to add some texture to my page. These are lots of fun and are very versatile for layouts or fun kids birthday cards. And of course I then added a Red Scroll Star. They are so cute.
And to finish off my layout as always i have added my favorite charms.. the camera and the brum brum car.

I am looking forward to doing some creating with the new Graphic 45 Prima ABC Paper collection when I arrives.. Should be any day now.
And take a look at the new Hambly Screen Prints Photo Rubons that are due in soon at my2angels too... I love them..
That's all from this wee duck for now..
Take care and I'm now off to so some blog reading.

Kaisercraft Saturday Sketch

It has been a lovely rainy day today so it was a perfect day to be inside and just play in my scrapping room. I picked up this delicious new range from Kaisercraft at Daisy Chain Scrapbooks last night while I was there for my Friday night crop. I had many visions of what I could create using them.
When we went to New Zealand on our first boat cruise in December 2010 we stopped at my old stomping ground Mt Maunganui. I spent nearly every summer of my life over there until I moved across the Tasman. These photos were taken of Corey at the top of this Mountain. It is such a beautiful part of our world.
This is what I come up with..

In this layout the only papers I have used are Kaisercraft Hunt and Gather Collection.. Is so beautiful. I love the real nature feeling of the papers and it is nice to see such different papers which are mellow and meaningful. Go here and check out the luscious range of Hunt & Gather.
I have also used Tim Holtz Distress ink and clear embossing powder for the cog, Prima branches, my2angels cap charm and October Afternoon letters.
I hope you all have a good weekend.. we are rained in but I love it.. and so good for the ducks :-)
Night night til next time.

Lazy wet cold Sunday

Corey and I woke up the sound of beautiful rain on the roof this morning. It was cold and wet outside so we decided it was a good day to be at home and keep warm. It took me til about 12pm to get myself in my scrapping room. I thought if I at least sit in there I would get inspired to create something. So I was happy to have made these few cards.
And I finally finished my canvas that has taken me over 3 weeks. I just need to put a gloss protective finish on it. My girlfriend Monika Dabrowska-Ejmont.... the hidden artist who is so beautifully talented inspired me with this canvas. I want to do another one similar but using more vintage tones. See how I go and will post when I have completed it.

I hope you all have had a great weekend. I called into Daisys Scrapbooks on Friday night as there was a retreat there for the weekend. Was great to see the lovely Alaine and Sheree from Brisbane. Cannot wait to catch up with you both in Brisbane soon and of course the other girls from out of town that travel so far away to come here. You are all such lovely nice girls xx That's it for me this arv..
Love and hugs Moons xx

Last night I had a great night with my good friend Monika here at home. We scrapped til all hours of the night, chatted, talked shit, watched Kung Fu Panda with Corey as he was with us and this is what I achieved last night. I have not scrapped for 5 weeks now which is a shock for me but I felt like I needed a break after submitting my work for Masters this year. I have been working on a canvas which has also been taking me forever but I am under no pressure and have no deadlines so I have been really enjoying the break.
I have had these canvas letters for forever. I was going to paint them up but they seemed to work just fine without. The chippy circle is from scrapware which I am in love with. Love their products, the crocheted flower from one of my favorite Etsy Stores "Greatest View" by Gail Lindner, and a Prima flower. Crate paper - Restoration, Emmas Shoppe and Pink Paislee Daily Junque.

And since I am still learning to use the copic pens.. I am not doing too much but do like putting together these wee cards when I do..
Here it is..
That's all for today... want to try and finish my canvas and will post it when I have.
Hope you are all having a great weekend.. I am hoping for a great pour down of rain.. So dry here at the moment.

Love this..!

I have been a slack blogger in the past two weeks.. Lots on..lots of visitors. Now got the weekend to myself so I am looking forward to doing nothing at all except getting into my scrapping room as I have not scrapped for 5 weeks..
I have nearly finished a canvas though. I cannot believe how slow I paint these days. But admittedly I have had no pressure with it and I have been in no rush. So I have enjoyed the change.
Will be right back soon with some new work to show.
Have a great weekend all

Doctors Surgery Bordem

Just thought I would throw in this collage I did up last night. Danielle and I and Corey spent 2 whole hours in the waiting room of the Doctors Surgery yesterday.. What a friggin joke. This is how we entertained ourselves.. Danielle has that silly thing on her iphone where the faces are transformed into aliens etc... we had such a laugh. We had to get her happy as she was waiting to get her ingrown toenail cut out. And then to make the 2 hour wait worse... the Doctor was in such a rush when he did it she had hardly lay down on the bed and he jammed 4 needles into her toe. The last Doctor put numbing cream on it gently for her. She cried in so much pain it was aweful.. Some of those Doctors should be out!!!!!
Another day in Townsville today. Did some painting on my canvas last night.. off to the strand today to the big bucket and then some afternoon wines with a girlfriend.. Actually Danielles boss.
Have a great week girls.

Far North Qld

Well it was a heck of a long drive up here on my own... well with my co driver next to me... Corey. But 1000km the first day and then 400km two days later and the full time catching up in between the drive with all my girls in Mackay certainly tired me out. We had a great time in Mackay. So many happy faces that I miss so much. Things just never change even when you have been away for 7 years and I guess thats why they are called great friends.. Cause things never change and the friendships will never change.
We have chilled out here in Townsville with my DD. She is still working with only her two days off during the week but it actually gives Corey and I .. more so me.. time to relax.

I packed in my car 2 canvases and a few of my paints, my copics and that is about it. I have really enjoyed going down to the Strand and relaxing on my blanket and playing with my copics. Im still shit at it... I cannot believe how well I can paint but how crappy I color in. Oh well, practice will perfect me I am guessing.
We went into A Craft Affair today. Helen in there is so lovely. It was quite overwhelming to see so many of my layouts hanging everywhere in the shop. Corey felt pretty special and said he was famous. hehehe.

Dani and I are going to the movies for a girly night tonight to see Bridesmaids. Cannot wait. I have been busting to see it and so has she.
Corey has even started a canvas today. Im so proud of his natural creative talent.
Thats the update from FNQ from me.

Oh I had butterflies in my tummy for 15 minutes after I posted my Masters submissions today. Phew... just actually glad it has gone.
Happy scrapping girls.. and to those who dont. .... what are you thinking...???
