Inspired Blueprints #104 sketch reveal

Friday's oh how I love them but I think its more  love hate relationship.... its great that its the weekend but with that thing said it means that the weekend will fly by and it will be Monday again :(

So trying to stay with the positives today, hope you have a wonderful Friday and weekend and if your feeling creative over this weekend why don't you try out Sketch #104 by Inspired Blueprints.....

So as you can see I have swapped the 2 smaller photos for a larger one and the banner I have made my own version with the little UFO's and have added some ''space junk'' to help thicken up that banner. And instead of paint splatters I added sequins and stars.

This is why I love sketches you can still make them so personal and its great for those who need a start point the rest is all in your hands.

Bo Bunny Blast off pp's & tags, Crate paper Frame,
MME enamel dots, Jillybean Title, sequins. 

Why don't you use Inspired Blueprints as your start point...... cant wait to see what you create and leave a comment here and I think I will have a little RAK give away for those who do play along....

Show Us Your Stuff

How is everyone on this Monday? if you are here over in Western Australia winter is still here and making its self know, hope that you are all safe, so far we have skipped any damage but there was times I definitely thought that I was going to see Dorothy and Toto fly past my window.....

Over the weekend I went to my monthly 12 hour Crop from Scrapbooks From the Heart... and to say I was having a creative crop was an understatement for sure I completed 7 layouts... I know right? I am usually lucky if I complete 2 and call it a success if there's 3 done over the 12 hrs.

So from that day I would like to share with you my latest creation I have been playing and entering a few challenges this month. My first one was from Show us your Stuff Septembers challenge being Red + White.... let me say not my usual go to palette but I am beyond happy with the results.

Dylusions mist, Kaisercraft template, Basic Grey heart, Fancy Pants pp,
Rainbow Splendour Heart, Polly's Felt flower, A piece of Cake Flair

 So the handmade elements: Rainbow Splendour Heart with button, A Piece of Cake Flair button, and Polly's Scrap kit Felt Flower.

So hoping the mojo continues so I can play along next month.....

Lets Celebrate!!!!

Good morning..... Rikki here and another Sunday passing marking nearly the end of the weekend :( but notice I did say nearly!!! Today I have another share using Webster's Let's Celebrate, which has been the perfect range for my daughters Birthday photos that I was trying to get to one day..... I am sure I am not alone in the one day pile (psssttt I also have one of those with the kids school photos, so if you have any tips on how to get rid of that pile please let me know).
I love this range as it make a beautiful page, and makes it quite a quick process when you are time poor.
So as you can see I nice quick page, using some left overs for the fussy cut cupcakes from last week and a banner that I also cut previously all I had to do was add some foam mount.

 I love the journal card set as it was a perfect mat for the photo and it was so quick to put together and its a great way to use your scraps also, this helps draw your eye to the photo which I wanted to be the focus.

Don't forget to enter in this months blog hop, you still have plenty of time to be in the running for some awesome prizes....

Inspired Blueprints #103 sketch reveal

So how is everyone going? I have come to the conclusion that I can get totally wrapped up in my creative days and hence have nearly missed a few deadlines.... and I cant do that not with Inspired Blueprints #103 sketch reveal can I?

As you can see I have flipped the sketch completely and instead of the banner I have added a large Chervon to keep the layout nice, clean and graphic. I have also added a larger journaling tag instead of the circle.

Resin flowers, Studio calico Butterflies,

Time passes toooooooo fast....

Hi, another Sunday has nearly passed and this reminds me that time is flying.... which reminds me of something that my Mother used to say ''when you get older time will fly'' and it usually end up with me responding with a ''whatever'', but now that I am older I have never been so a where of this and I catch myself reflecting a lot. Not that long ago I was going into labour with our 3 child our first girl.... ( while telling one of my scrap girlies off for being a chicken when it came to a heat gun...), she just turned 3 last month!

So with that in mind how time flies I am sharing with you today a simple layout using the Webster's Lets Celebrate range and its perfect for birthday layouts, and perfect for a little girls 2nd birthday.
