Kraft It Up - Feb

Can you believe it?! Back with another page! Haven't got around to the Kraft It Up challenges for a while, and I couldn't resist the criteria for this month - using Kraft as your base scrap about something you love. Too easy! Especially since I had this photo of a newer member of our household sitting on my desk that I wasn't exactly sure how to go about scrapping....

So this is what I came up with. You may remember Pearl coming into our family about this time last year as DD2's birthday present. Well it turns out I have taken to having a bird in the house much more than I ever thought that I would. In fact Pearl has really come in and taken over the house! Everyone just adores her and loves spending time with her, and she loves spending time with us.

I just had to use yellow and orange as my colours when scrapping about Pearl, which makes it a bright happy page too! Isn't she a sweet little thing??!!

Well, that's it for now, thanks for dropping by.

Anna's Craft Cupboard - Feb Sketch

So, I have been playing at my craft table again. Thought I would do another challenge, and one that I have not done before! I have decided to play along with the Anna's Craft Cupboard monthly sketch. I do enjoy using a sketch as a starting point for a page! So here is the sketch:

A kind of Project Life style of sketch. I decided to rotate to suit my landscape photos, but otherwise kept pretty true to the sketch. So here it is:

I have used some of my older photos that I have in my stash. My little Erin on her 5th birthday! Funny, because it is her birthday tomorrow and she will be 13! My how the time flies! I am really enjoying playing around with watercolour techniques at the moment, and most of the time I am using my spray mists instead of actual paint.

Well, that is it for me for today. Til next time,

Scrap the Boys - Feb

Have managed to do a little scrapping for myself this weekend, and with the heat and humidity what else was a girl to do but lock herself inside in the aircon and scrap!

I have done the Feb challenge for Scrap the Boys, which is to feature your boy/man and someone special in their life. I had this great picture of my boy and one of his best buddies, and I thought it was the perfect relationship to document!

Had fun playing with some of my new stamps. Just love playing with my stamps at the moment!

I also have another page to share.

This one came about from the need to play with mists and stamps and texture paste and masks ....

Thanks for stopping by.

February Inspiration at D'Lish Scraps

D'Lish Scraps has a gorgeous inspiration board up for February. It is called "Love Is", perfect for the month of love! Here is the board -

And here is my take on the board -

I just loved the cross stitched heart so absolutely had to use that in my page. But there was so much that I loved about this board so you can see bits and pieces of it throughout my page.

Here is a list of all the lovely goodies that I used from D'Lish:

Motex writer
Motex tape in black
Flair - vintage rose
Printed Button - bird
Journal It's - Chalk tab and Date
Bitty Blooms - white
Pearls - blue
Chevron bag - pink
Chipboard mini words - smile
Sequins - aqua blue

So, now it's your turn to be inspired! Go and check out the other fab pages by the Creative Team and then create your own!

February White With One

Hello, and here we are well into another month already! The past few weeks have seen me getting my kids ready for and settled into school, so things like scrapping and blogging have taken a bit of a back seat.

But having said that, I have a new month of WW1 to share! This month is White with Grape, a gorgeous shade of purple.

And this is my page -

This month we also were lucky enough to have some gorgeous blooms, frames and words from Manor House. I have to admit, I struggled to start with the flowers, but I think it worked out OK!

So, feeling in need of a challenge? Why don't you head over to WW1 and check out the rest of the wonderful inspiration from the team and do one yourself!
