This was my layout for the colour challenge where we were asked to use the colours - Black, Orange and White.
The centre of the flower was made using a die cutter I purchased last Saturday that cuts the narrow strip of paper and all the little slits for the quilled flower...... might start back doing some quilling which I used to do in the early days of my cardmaking when I combined quilling with rubber stamping.

This was my layout for the Sketch Challenge and is another page for my Tasmanian Holiday album.
These birds are commonly known as Mutton Birds and it was such a thrill to get to see them come to land and go into their burrows. They spend the day out over the ocean and only come to their burrows at night.
This layout was for the WORD Challenge... we had to choose to work with either the word "Trick" or "Treat"... so I chose Treat.
this was a fun layout to put together and is only an 8 x 8 page for a small Album I am starting --"All About Me"... some quirky things , some normal things, some funny things about me.
The photos were printed from my computer and they turned out better than I expected as Iam having trouble with my new printer getting to print not too dark. The "Chocolate" is letter I pruchased from Lettering Delights ( I do love their alphabets... so much fun)

This is my recent paper scapbooking layout.
I have used Glimmermist sprayed on the background cardstock over some Walnut ink- Eucalyptus and the tags were also sprayed withe glimmer mist and while wet scrunched up then when dry ironed flatter.
The frame is a printed one from the computer - digital scrapbooking.
This was a special event to carry my newest granddaughter in her sling twice on this day with the second time being during a lunchtime picnic when she went asleep and so I held her for over 2 hours.
I just love the idea of these slings... really helps with bonding.
