Oh To Be

Another challenge.Wow. This is Daring you to Scrap using left over papers to create a background.What a great way to use left over bits and pieces. Some papers are so lovely it is nice to use them again.

I don't know what has happened , this is my third post in a month. Some of the blogs have some interesting challenges and I have had a few days at home.Amazing what can happen when you have a bit of free time.Kraft It Up's challenge was using four colours.....blue,yellow.green and red. I have done this in record time. I am usually a slow scrapper but this one has come together quite quickly. I love the photo of Noah it is quite pensive.

This photo shows a bit of detail with the stitching and the pinwheel.

Summer Fun

Noah really loved his first swim in his pool. With the warm weather arriving it was an opportune time to get some great photo's of him splashing and playing in the water. Scrap the Boys had a challenge on their blog for your favourite summer activities, so the timing worked in well. Even though this is his first summer I think it is going to be one of his favourite summer activities.

This is a bit of the detail with the water and waves that I accentuated with a bit of machine stitching and some clear buttons which give the look of bubbles

Me and Dad

It's some time since I have posted a blog.Christmas has been and gone in the blink of an eye and now its is the New Year. White With One have a challenge this month using white with Lime and buttons.Well the Lime was a bit of a challenge because I don't use lime very much. But after a scrounge through the stash it is a surprise at just what is there. So have a look at my page and let me know what you think.(I did have one little variation of the lime and that was the green that was in the feathers)
