Here's a quick layout I did from when my daughter and I visited kelly tarlton's aquarium. I had to have my photo taken inside the shark's mouth! and my daughter had to ride the shark bus :-)

Over at Crafters Anonymous I'm challenging us to scrap more than one photo on a page.
I used a Graphic 45 patterned paper and then added some stamping and direct to page ink from ink pads.

I'm also entering this layout into Gingersnap Creations Things that Leap Once in a Blue Moon Challenge. I figure that sharks do some leaping.... least this one looks like it's leaping lol
Have a great week.

Bling it!

It's my turn to host the challenge over at Craft Room and I've chosen Bling/Glitter!

Our sponsor is Liz Welch at Rarebird, she specialises in Friendly Plastic and as soon as I saw it I had to have a go

It's so easy to heat and bend, you're only limited by your imagination :-)

For the butterfly I cut and heated together some different colours then thinned them out, and then used a die cut to get the butterfly shape, I also sunk in some bling while the plastic was still hot.

So the I go thinking- that the colours I had would look great on a small Venetian mask, here's what I came up with:

I heat stuck some different peices togather, then stamped with a Venetian stamp, I then moulded to the shape I wanted added some extra pieces and some bling.

I hope you get to join in the fun at Craft Room,

A Special Card

Tonight at Crafters Anonymous Julia showed us how to make this really cool folded card. I've decorated mine for family friends who's just had some bad news, I hope it chelps them know I'm thinking of them.


My mom loves!!!! Ronan Keating, so when I heard he was playing in Wellington I knew I had to take her. She had a great time, hard to get a photo but it's all about memories in this case rather than a great photo. Here's my page- it's a 12 x 12.
This is my page for the new scrapbook challenge at Crafters Anonymous and also my February page for Let's Scrap 2012.

I hope you all have a great week.

Let Them Drink Tea

We had a guest class tonight, and the lovely Tania Cordie, fought powercuts to bring us this super cool class.

It's a teacup box, I went with Marie Antoinette, and just played with Let them eat cake, though apparently she never said it...

Anyways, I think it makes a cute gift box, perfect for a tea drinking friend.
