Christmas Inspiration - Teresa Collins...

Hello everyone,
I am excited to share with you all a couple of layouts I created using the gorgeous Teresa Collins Santa's List collection. I can't believe Christmas is just around the corner and I still haven't scrapped photos from last Christmas yet!
The papers in this collection are just magical..I absolutely love the bits of glitter on the patterns in the paper.  And because the colours are fairly neutral, it makes it easier to add whatever Christmas colour you want.

"Its the Most Wonderful Time of the Year"

Love the snowflake pattern on one of the pattern papers...couldn't help but go all out with that theme even tho our Christmas's are far from being snowy! The big snowflake is a chipboard piece from Kaiser along with a Pink Paislee star which I covered in red glitter to match the glitter in the paper.

A bit of mixed media going on in the background with texture paste, gesso, masking, stamping and lots of Shimmerz, TA Glimmer Glaze.

This is another layout I also created from the same collection.

"Christmas Magic"

I so so so love these gorgeous baubles from 2Crafty Chipboard! I have covered them in Shimmerz Texturez and outlined them also with some Shimmerz Pearlz.

I had loads of fun creating these layouts.  It really got me in the Christmas mood and we are looking forward to this weekend getting the Christmas tree up :))
Thanks for stopping by :)

Some scrappy shares :)

Hi everyone,

Just found a little bit of time to post some recent layouts I have created for the Flying Unicorn using their November Kit.  Such a gorgeous kit with a mixture of Prima Delight papers, Marion Smith Mad Tea Party and more with loads of embellishments.  I have so much left over I am hoping to continue to create more with this kit this month.


Love this photo of all my boys taken way back in January by our gorgeous friend Leah Cruikshank.  She does such beautiful photos. And to think I am now a mummy to another beautiful lucky :))

A fair bit going on here as usual.  Sometimes I alter the background so much that you can hardly tell what papers I! Lots of Gesso, texture paste, Shimmerz Coloringz and Texturez on here as well as stamping.  I love experimenting these days, although not as much as I would like too and plus when I do get a chance, I have to be quick now I have a baby!!

"So Sweet"
These gorgeous boys are cousins on my side of the family.  Yep all boys and now there is another one to the group. Cant wait to get a photo of the 5 of them. :))

Using a Manor House flower vine and some Leaky Shed Chipboard.

And just on a personal note, its been a while....I want to thank you all from the bottom of my heart of those who left congratulations messages on the birth of our little boy.  I know how busy life is for all of us so that fact that you stopped by and left me a message was really appreciated. 
And for those of you who leave me messages wondering how I am....well I am GOOD! Very busy, trying to juggle so many balls at once, but going really well and so is Luca.  I couldn't have asked for a better baby.  He has been a dream but still just as demanding as all babies are.  Riley and Finlay love him to bits and are such a big help to me.
I have finally received my photos back from our photoshoot we had just after Luca was born.  Here is one of my absolute favourites!! So lucky to be a mummy to three gorgeous boys.
Thanks for stopping by :)
