Showing Your Cheeky Side Layout.

Good afternoon all. Hope you are all having a wonderful day. We are having the most glorious weather in Perth at the moment. So I have been out and about with the kids enjoying the sunshine. Here's a layout I did for the latest monthly challenges over at Challenge Heaven. This one is for the Word challenge where you had to use the word cheeky in your title and the extra criteria was to use a patterned paper base.

I thought this photo would be perfect with my DS doing his typical "Butt" pose. He thinks it's hilarious. We did manage to get some nice shots of his first day of school too, thank goodness.

I have used Kaisercraft Class of '87 papers and paper pad. So perfect with the colours of his school uniform. The gorgeous twine is from my lovely friend Marcia. Stay tuned for details as she will be selling twine and other hand-made goodies soon.

Thanks for looking and enjoy the rest of your day.
We are off to the park soon for a bit more sunshine.

Crate Paper Anniversary Card

Good afternoon friends. Here's another card creation using once again, Crate Paper Emma's Shoppe both papers and chipboard accents. The sentiment was done on the computer and printed on the DP then cut using my circle nesties. The flowers are done with my MFT Die-namics Rolled Rose.

I am loving the chipboard elements in this collection. Crate paper used every bit of space so you have some really tiny accents as well as the large ones shown here.

Thanks for looking and enjoy the rest of your day.

Mother's Day Cards

Happy Mother's Day for yesterday friends. Sorry I didn't get to post these yesterday but very busy day (weekend). I made two cards this year, one for a friend and one for my mum. Both in the same style to make it easier, and both using Crate Paper's collection Emma's Shoppe. Loving these papers. The one below was given to my mum. A little bit softer and in mums favourite colours.

This one was for my friend whose hubby is away on business at the moment (very bad timing I say!) Anyway I wanted to do something special for her and let her know how wonderful a mum she is, so I gave her this card with a small present which included a mug, some chocolates and earl grey tea bags (her favourite). The sentiment is from Stampin Up and the flowers are beautiful Prima flowers that I received from my gorgeous friend Marcia.

Thanks for looking.

Birthday Card and Altered Box

Hello friends and happy Thursday. I can't believe it's nearly the weekend already. The weeks seem to go by so fast these days. I made this card and box set for a dear friend's birthday using gorgeous Crate Paper Emma's Shoppe papers and chipboard accents. The stamp is Fancy Anya from The Greeting Farm. Lots of distressing and inking on this one. I also glimmer-misted the flower which started out white and sponged some ink in the centre too. I am really into playing with twine at the moment both the natural and pretty mixed colour ones too.

Altered Giftbox.

My friend loved that I had added the "B" which is the first initial of her name.
Very personal she said.

Thanks so much for looking. I will have some layouts to share with you soon and of course a Mother's Day card made especially for my beautiful Mum. Hope you all have a wonderful Friday tomorrow.
