You Are My Happy

I saw that title on a page last week and loved it.

This is the result of a little play with one of my Polly Scraps Kits.

Aren't those little corkie people cute! 
 It's cork cut with a My Favorite Things Die. 
 I love, love love them ♥

I'm also so loving using these older photos.

and now for something completely different!

So out of my comfort zone with this one.  
I look at it and I love it.  
I look at it another time and hate it.
Then I ♥ it again.

I do know as is evidence in my last few months of pages that I way ♥ Crafters Workshop Templates.
And I can't get enough sprays.  My fave of all of them is Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays.  They are all so gorgeous, but my absolute fave or faves is this Lindy's Flat Fabio set.  
It's solid colour, and is so bright.

Last month I subscribed to a couple of kit clubs and although the next ones are about to be
released, I only got my first play with them this weekend.
The paper and embellies were from

This is my entry in this months Scrap the Girls.


A quote

"Having a sister is like having a best friend you can't get rid of. 

You know whatever you do, they'll still be there."

I think I'm pretty lucky cause I have 4 of them ♥

I made this lolly pop flower thingy with My Favorite Things Dynamics Cork. 
I love this stuff!  It's awesome!
Have run it through the Big Shot with a few different dies and I love the look of it.
This one I've cut by hand.

Also this is the first time I've used Honeycomb paper.  I saw a vid with Tim Holtz
using it and it looked cool.  Very hard to see properly here.

Lily Bee Designs and Purple Pumpkin

I've done another sketch challenge.  This time it's the one at Purple Pumpkin.  My page is a little different but it's how I interpreted the sketch.

Another first for me is Lily Bee Design.  I've used the Victoria Park Collection kit. 

 Love the bright colours with the blacks and the Purple Pumpkin button and doily match perfectly.

This rose has been made with Spellbinders Rose Creations by Donna Salazar.  Click on the link and there is a video with Donna showing how to make these.  They're awesome.  I cut out what I needed with the dies and put myself in front of the computer and followed along.  I have finished it off with a sprinkle of Fairy Dust by Donna Salazar

My chipboard 3 has been embossed with a Lindy's Stamp Gang powder and the circle has been lightly  painted with Lindy's Stamp Gang Magical Micas.

I finished the page off by adding a little bling with my I-Rock.

My Minds Eye

Many people know that MME is my favorite must have in my scrap collection.  This one is  another one of my faves but I have so many that I love I wouldn't know which to chose if I had too.

The challenge at the moment on the My Minds Eye blog is Brads.  Brads are so easy to use but especially when MME has such gorgeous ones.

For this page I have used the Lost & Found Sunshine collection.  How gorgeous are the colours of this collection?  Beautiful.

I have again used a Crafters Workshop template and Tim Holtz Rosette Die.

I love this boy ♥

And now my card

for the Authentique Paper sketch challenge.

again with the Authentique Carefree kit.

My absolute fave

so far this year anyway.  This is my first time using Authentique paper and it's definately not going to be my last.  This paper is gorgeous.  It has a real nice feel to it and I love this collection.  It's called Carefree Love it!

I have used it for the sketch challenge on the Authentique Paper blog and am really happy with how it turned out.  I've used a Crafters Workshop template again (♥), and a Magnolia die and a Tim Holtz Sizzix die to make my embellies.

 This photo was taken 5 years ago at my birthday dinner and Jord and I were just poking silly faces.  I love that I am using older photos in my layouts at the moment.

On this piece and the one with the rosettes on it, I've used Pink Paislee Spring Jubilee stamps.  They go perfect with this collection.

Apart from inking around the edges of this paper, I did nothing to it.  It has this beautiful soft distressed look.

I have done a card for their sketch challenge as well that is very similar to my page.  I will post that tomorrow.  You can enter their sketch challenge many times but each project is to be on a separate post. 

Have already gone back and added more Authentique to my cart.
