Manor House Projects...

Hi everyone,

I have been so slack in sharing my MHC projects with before I head away for the school holidays I wanted to get a few of them up in cased you missed them on the MHC blog.

I created this page using a mixture of some 7Dots paper, Glitz and Basic Grey along with some beautiful Manor House flowers. Lots of mixed media techniques used on the background of this layout. Love this photo of my boys with one of my youngest sister just before she moved over Perth.  We miss her heaps....


A few closeups...

"Black Skinnies"

More gorgeous MH flowers teamed up with some Basic Grey papers.  Went for some softer colours with a hints of bold black for something different.

A birthday card using some bits and pieces...

Thanks so much for stopping by.  We are off camping over Easter and then to the Sunshine Coast beach after that! Can't wait for our little family holiday :))

Take care and see you in a few weeks!

Paper Stories March Challenge

Hello everyone,

Its been a few weeks since my last post but I have been thoroughly enjoying some down time and cherishing some time with my Dad and Mum who have been up here visiting, celebrating Riley's 6th Birthday...Pirate Style!!! and enjoying our new coffee machine....swoon! LOL!!

Okay so today I will share with you the latest sketch challenge for Paper Stories.  LOVE the Page Drafts sketch.

"Through your Eyes"

So I turned the sketch on this one and used a mist drip as the banner how this layout turned out for me..a little bit different for me but that was my goal this year...just go with the flow, try something different!

I couldn't help but scrap this photo of myself that Riley took with my phone.  He has taken to my phone lately and just been snapping away...I love looking back at the photos and seeing things from a child's perspective, so this layout was a little note to myself.

Stamping, rubbons and different for me, but I love it! :)

And this month up for grabs is a fantastic collection pack from Teresa Collins...

And just quickly sharing a layout I did using the Colour Crazy kit which I was lucky enough to receive. Lots of different things happening here too on this layout.  I have had this photo of Riley with his Kindy Graduation Diploma (hehe!) sitting in my pile for a while, so I wanted to create something fun and quirky that totally reflected on how much fun he had while at Kindy!

The kit came with some awesome and fun embellishments so if you love scrapping with brights and doing fun pages, this is the kit for you. 

If you hurry, Paper Stories is offering FREE POSTAGE!! On all orders $40 or more until Sunday (10 March 2013) (within Australia). Simply enter the code "FREE POST" at checkout.
