My Jump for Life

For ever and ever I have always loved adrenaline..  I love cars and motorbikes, the rides at the Show... the faster and crazier the better, I have done 2 awesome bungy jumps and I love the outdoors.  This is something I have been wanting to do for about 15 years now and my husband got 2 tickets for us to do the deed.  I was more worried about him sitting in the plane as he won't even go in a ghost train at Movie World.  I actually felt like crying for him when I saw him jump.  And yes he was first.  Not by our choices... thats just the way the cookie crumbled.  LOL
I loved it.. It was the most amazing experience just stepping out of the plane and doing rolly pollies out into the sky.  OMG..... the thought of it just blows me away.
So as you can see I had a friend Lisa Hayes who was pretty keen to take some great shots for us ... and that she did.  And of course I couldn't wait to scrap them.  I never really do double pages but it is must do when you have a few great shots you want to document.
So this is what I come up with.

 I have a huge list of products so here goes:

American Craft Thickerts - Tinsel
Prima Paper - Botanical Collection
Teresa Collins - Take Note Notations
October Afternoon Mini Market Stickers
Scrapmatts Clock
7 Gypsies Lille Journal Tags
my2angels Resin Flower and camera charm
Jenni Bowlin Bingo Buttons
October Afternoon - Farmhouse Sticker
Bumble Beee Kraft Tags
Girls Paperie Tinsel and Twig Diecuts and letter stickers
Bakers Twine
Cosmo Cricket Tiny Text
Felt for my handmade bird
Glitz it now - Tiny Letters
American Craft Thickers - Daiquiri

This was just one of those layouts I put together with great ease and relaxation.  I loved the products I have used.  Lots of goodies in here.
Thanks for looking and stopping bye

and our Black and Blue Dragonfly Charming Chain
with an additional hanging pearl to add and compliment your creation

and a layout with our

Using Bo Bunny Enchanted pp as the base and spraying the edges with Jack Frost Glimmer Mist (OOS) but Turquoise Blue or Heidi Swapp Electric Blue are a great alternative

Using our paper doilies for the background
a diecut from Bo Bunny Enchanted Cut Outs (but it has a knight and quote on it so I covered with a Blue Rose embellishment and flowers)
my title

 and our
Black and Blue Dragonfly Charming Chain

and here are a few tips from the layout

An easier way when using our Rhinestone Circles is to cut them up individually so you can place them on your layout to find the right position 

And my little blue rose embellishment ... it is easy peasy to make:

Just add:

Home Sweet Home

Last week Daisys had their second retreat of the year.... It's always nice to catch up with all the friends I have made there over the past 5 years.
This layout is a class that the clever Toni Crane taught.   I did not do the class but did it during the week at home.  I have changed a bit to it to suit my colourful photo.  Love this photo.  This was taken in November 2010 when the three of us went on the beautiful boat cruise around New Zealand.  We we sooo fortunate to have a very fast but the most awesome 7.5 hours with Mum and John at home.  We called in to Mount Maunganui port and Mum lives just 30 min from there.  We did a fast dash out to home just to be there.  I love my Mum's home.. Home is home and she has her home so full of love and art and creations every direction you look.  

Products I have used are:
Oboter Afternoon Farmhouse paper
Crate Paper doily stickers
Kaiser Craft - Madam Boutique Stickers
October Afternoon Alpha Stickers
Martha Stewart Butterfly punch
Measure Tape trim
Music paper

Thanks for stopping in .... my time to go and do some blog surfing

Perfect Love

Since I have only scrapped about 4 of my wedding photos and this is one of my favourite photos, I thought I would dig it out and find some paper.  I walked into Daisy Chain Scrapbooks on Friday night for my regular scrap night and this stunning Graphic 45 paper was sitting on the shelf waiting for me. Not like me to do a vintage page I know bahahahhahah...... but it is just my favourite style of scrapping.. Love the soft shabby chic and gorgeous shades of vintage and sepia.

Here is a list of products I have used.
Tim Holtz Kraft - Core cardstock
Graphic 45 - Old Curiosity Shoppe Collection
Echo Park - Life's a boy
MME - Follow your heard layered stickers
7 Gypsies Brad
Kaiser Chipboard Bodice
Echo Park This n That paper
Prima Canvas Words inked up
MME - Be loved - Sweethearts

I have just inked up these cute Prima canvas letters with my favourite Pinecone and a dusty pink.  I can't wait to get my hands on more of these.  Barbi has ordered them in so just waiting if you girls want any.
Hope you all had a great weekend.  I only had today off and back to work tomorrow for a big week stocktaking.. it's a HUGE job at Spotlight !!!!
Take care and happy creating girls x

A Challenge for me


 Well it has been about 12 months since I took on a challenge. I loved the look of this sketch.  It took my Eye straight away and I was pretty happy with what I achieved. It is pretty simple and clean but was nice to do one like this for a change. 
Go over to for the details of the challenge.
That's all for tonight.  In bed watching Indiana Jones with my boys in the air con. Pure bliss I say :-)

Girls Weekend

 This was the most funnest weekend I have had in such a long time.  I had all these gorgeous girls arrive Friday afternoon for a retreat I held at my place.  It was so much fun.  We ordered our regular Thai takeaway.  We scrapped til 2am and I was shocked in the morning that all the beds were made and the girls were back into it.  I only got up at 8.30. I thought they would all still be snooooozing.. We decided to take off and go to Cotton Tree for breaky and it was to die for.  The girls had a quick pop in to Spotlight... well they were gone a fair while to be honest LOL
I took this photo and on my way home I got us all a copy developed and decided to scrap it that night.  Thanks soooo much girls for the best weekend.
As you can see I have used the gorgeous Pink Paislee printed paper and I have added a lovely cluster of charms and flowers from Tracy over at my2angels.  I love the colour of the resin flowers out you can get now. So full of cuteness. I have used the Pink Paislee chipboard mannequin and popped a trim of antique lace on it.  The chippy is a doily from Scrapware which I have just inked up with my favourite Pinecone ink and lastly I had to add the pretty flower from Collection Elements.
I cannot wait to see your layouts girls using your photo... Will be great to see other takes on it.
Thanks for stopping in girls and have a great weekend.  I have the weekend off and...... it's going to blow me away but I am jumping out of a plane on Sunday. Wooohooooo :-)

My Princess

 I have finally used this gorgeous Bo Bunny Enchanted paper collection for the most special photo of my girl and I.   This was at my husbands Daughters wedding and Danielle was Bridesmaid.  She looks simply stunning and I was ever so proud to be her Mumma.
I have used a few bits and pieces on this layout.. At first I was lost as the paper is soo stunning and it seemed a shame to cover and scrap it..  I covered these cute chipboard hearts of Jenni Bowlin that I have had for donkeys years.. used the simply stunning Prima flowers which were the perfect colour match as I was soo struggling with trying to match up Danielle's dress. I have used Tracys lovely charms from my2angels, Heidi Swapp printed tissue paper which I have slightly gathered, Delish brad and a crystal tear drop.  The leaves are old too but still gorgeous.  These are Making Memories.
I have this layout next to my desk in my scrapping room.  Miss having my girl next to me every day.  It is coming up 2 years now since she left home :-(  I still hate it but my heart is happy that she is so happy up North.
Thanks for stopping in to have a looksie x

Crazy Love

This is one of my favourite  photos of two of my most favourite people.... Friends like these are for life.. Liz and I and Mike become friends 15 years ago in Mackay.. We lived in the same street and we just can't get rid of each other..... When we spent the fortnight in the caravan Liz and Mike and the 3 kids come up and enjoyed a home away from home holiday in our house.  I took this picture with the Leme Cam app from my iPhone.  I just love the vintage look for this vintage pair.. LOL
I have used Simple Stories paper, Jenni Bowlin buttons which I still adore, Echo Park Times and Seasons paper, Cosmo Cricket Odds and Ends paper, 7 Gypsies Lille paper, Martha Stewart punches.. my favourites again, twine and a bit of double sided foam tape.  I have mounted the photo onto some very hard cardboard I had in my stash.

I am looking forward to some cooler weather now.. So over the stinking heat.  We have been giving the air con a thrashing over the past month... We're pretty spoilt with our winters so bring it on I say x
