Weekend away...

So last weekend I was off to my favourite out of town spot... Country Papercraft!

I finally took the York route and it was such a lovely drive... off the big highway, almost no trucks,,, in fact almost no other cars!

Saw this gorgeous old cottage by a stunning yellow field of canola on the way...

And I also scrapped for Mystical's September Cyber Crop

 Super cute Jack at Mum's house June 2019 - Jack 10 months old.  I realized this page also might meet Archiscraps Sept challenge :)

And my super cute boy - 13th Birthday. 

I have almost finished scrapping our 2018 Christmas photos.... which is a first for me as I have so much trouble scrapping Christmas photos.
Will post them when I have compleated them all... just need a couple more photos printed.

Mystical Scrapbooks Septmeber Challenge

September challenge for Mystical is to tear paper... some people struggle with this technique, I love it!! 

A photo from our Singapore holiday... And an item crossed off my bucket list, Cloud Forest in Gardens by the Bay.

Pink Paisley - Indigo & Ivy papers and Stickers
Flowers - Mulberry Flowers, Carnations and Rose
Leaves - Green Tara Ferns
Ink - Versa Colour, Pinecone

From my stash I've added some corrugated card, torn and inked along with some fussy cut flowers from Cocoa Vanilla range that I left over, and some wire spirals I made.

Thanks for stopping by

Mystical Scrapbooks May Challenge

Mystical Scrapbooks is having Heritage-style challenges for May, looking through my photos I found this one from our visit to Yaploop a few years ago.

Kaisercraft Time Machine is perfect for this page, and I got to play with my Finnabair rust paste set.

I have kept this page simple as I'm going to turn it into a double layout page.

Till next time

Mothers Day 2019

A low key Mothers Day here this year, hubby away and me not feeling very flash at the moment with back pain...  For Mother's Day, Ethan gave me just want I asked for, a lovely soft cuddly throw and new book 💗

Ethan an I got up early and had breakfast at Vic Park Garden markets, it was a very small market, but a lovely morning.  I added to my indoor plant collection with an African Violet... I've not seen one for years!!

So I brought Mum and myself one... 

Not sure it shows up in the photo, but the flowers actually sparkle in the sun! 

I made a cake and had a simple morning tea with Mum.  Orange & Poppy seed with a citrus cream cheese frosting.

Till next time!

April Cyber Crop

Got to love a scrappy weekend!

My take on Mystical Scrapbooks cyber crop challenge #3 - Inspiration Board.

I took inspiration from the layers...

I've used Cocoa Vanilla leftover bits from my stash, these papers are so nice I keep and use every bit I can!  I've placed the frames over the pp, then backed the photos with foam and placed them over the frames.
Till next time...

Week 6 - Indigo

Now that's not a colour I generally reach for... but I don't know why it's gorgeous!

 Such a deep rich colour, I think I will have to try and work with it more often.

For this layout, I've paired it with white and gold.

Gold ink on the chipboard, just a touch of glam I think.  Sometimes gold can also be a bit daunting to work with, but little touches can complement a rich colour like Indigo.
I didn't have any indigo flowers, so I've painted some white Green Tara apple blossoms with Kaisercraft paint, and spritz with some white mist for a little shimmer.

This photo is about my desert rose, I thought it was going to die, leaves turning yellow and falling off, then all of a sudden it starting growing new baby leaves.

I didn't intend to try and grow one of these, but the Bunning's man marked it down to $5.00 after I found it out of its pot.... so it's my rescue baby!

Cheers, thanks for stopping by....

Follow the Rainbow - Week 3

Gosh, it's so lovely to see all the beautiful colour pages uploaded for Mystical Scrapbooks 2019 competition :)

We are up to week 3 now!  And here's my take on it.  A school photo that I've tried to scrap a couple of times, while my boy has an adorable and slight goofy look, it's the colours that had me struggling.....but this challenge helped!

I added some glimmer magic to my paint to give it a bit more interest,  it's doesn't show well in photos, but looks great in real life....add some tiny prills as well.

Now I'm off to finish some Cyber Crop layouts!
