Sawyer's Place washi competition....

So my little share for today is for Made with Memories and Sawyer's Place , love doing the combos. I was very lucky for my design team pack to get the new Crate paper Bo peep range, and you might think that its just for babies and little girls but I set myself a challenge to use the range for something else....

The background pattern is Sawyer's Place Pink Crochet washi tape isn't it beautiful, they are currently holding a competition.....

Its just not paper!!!!!

Have you ever been so excited about a range of paper that once you had it in your hands you didnt want to stuff it up so you put in onto your shelves for another day? Well this is the paper that did it for me Lost and Found 2 by My Minds Eye. I wanted it so badly, brought the whole range and I do mean the whole range, was so excited about the black , grey and yellow combo, and did nothing with it because it was sooooooo precious. I know its just paper but you dont understand its NOT just paper its PRETTTTTTYYYYYYYYYYY!!!

So the other day in having to come up with a layout I decided to bite the bullet and use a sheet of that pretty paper and I didnt stuff it up! Moral of the story is to just scrap it and you might be happy with what you create.

Resin !!! my sugar rush

Resin, resin everywhere.... I refer to my resin jar as my lolly jar, its so pretty and it really does look like lollies and its perfect for those of us trying to be health conscious and I can thank Handmade Halo for this "sugar" addiction.  So with this in mind how do you make it even prettier? the answer is Kindy glitz, nothing like a little bling to make a perfect girly page.....

Steam punk and me....

It is a very rare occasion that I have any photos of myself to scrap, if your lucky on a good year there will be 2 or 3 photos and very, very rarely on my own. I am working on changing that but its hard when I love taking photos. A friend of mine took this photo of me and its not half bad. So I thought what could I do..... I had these beautiful Handmade Halo Charms and I discovered that you can colour them in with you copic markers yay!!! nothing better than to alter something. And what better way to show cause this technique than going steam punk..... please be gentle this is my 1st attempt in trying this style.

Hi, I am Rikki and I have "collection" issues...

If anyone has seen my scrap area, you know what its like.... "a mini shop", full of everything you could ever need to get the perfect layout done, but for anyone who knows me, its the joy of having whole collections at my disposable so I don't need to go out all the time for supplies and by having "collections" the mojo can keep flowing.....

So for my Made With Memories Design team kit, it was about all the little touches and being able to finally use the things I have been collecting..... sounds good, doesn't it? the things I try and convince myself to justify my hoarding and little "shop"!

Hmmm might have to work on that a bit more, what do you think?

On Friday it marks the start of the school holidays over here in the West and I must say I am really looking forward to them, no school pick ups & drop offs but that being said ask me in 2 weeks if I feel the same.

This layout was a design team combo ( I know again ) but I am very fortunate to have Sawyer's Place and Made With Memories work together. So why dont you go and grab some washi tape and see what it is all about
