Chic @ 8

One wet Saturday Lily and Mum......Andrea.....made this beautiful princess dress for dressups.Lily had a tiara that matched and it all went together rather nicely. It was the colour of the dress and tiara that inspired my page. It was a lovely colour to work with and Lily was happy to have her photo taken...she usually vanishes when I appear with the camera. So I thought this would be good for the Get Picky challenge.

I loved the flower detail...simple but effective

Kraftitup Challenge

kraft it up had an interesting sketch as a challenge. I chose a series of photo's and worked from there.
I loved the dogs and they finished off a boy page very nicely.

Whitewith1 Challenge

 My second challenge on the weekend was the whitewith1 challenge. The theme was... purple with doodling. What to doodle? After much thought and looking at photo's for inspiration I finally settled  for this style.

I think Noah is happy with all his litle friends. I hope you like it.

Ballarat Retreat

I have just had a crazy weekend away with a group of fellow scrappers at Ballarat. A great thank you to Jenny who organised the weekend, and who also makes the weekend just that little bit crazier. We scrapped,laughed , ate Jenny's homemade pumpkin soup (that's mainly what we go for), tried a lttle bit more scrapping, stayed up late and had a wonderful weekend. The weather was kind and it was lovely to sit out in the sun and watch the robin redbreasts hopping about while sipping a cuppa. Also a gentle walk along the path through the tall gums. How much better can it get?
  I decided to try a couple of challenges for my pages at the weekend.
The first one was a Scrapville sketch challenge  and the second was a card from Janets monthly pack. If you visit her blog you will see the page I have already done from the pack. 

I loved the papers for this lovely photo. They reflected the happy smile.

These Heritage papers are not my usual colours and style. But when you get a pack as a challenge they take you out of your comfort zone andI was surprised at how I enjoyed them.

Brrrr. It's winter

Well I have been a bit slow on the whole blog thing lately. But I was thinking how cold it has been with all the colds and cough scenario but spring is around the corner. I thought would share with you a page I did of Lily last winter in her new hat.
