Mixing it up!!

I just love to mix up brands when scrapping.  So this layout was a just because and a just because my little Mason is so...

"Picture Perfect"

I have used papers by Websters, Sass and Creative Imaginations.  Of course Prima flowers feature along with Melissa Frances frames (I luv these)!!  There is also a bit of Bo Bunny in here and the Baby Buggy Transperancy from Hambly:)  The crystals are new from Prima and definately a must have.....so many colours to pick from!

I just love this brick mask from Prima, it's so easy to use and so perfect for Mr Humpty to sit on:):)

Okay, best get off here, it's nearly that time of day again.....Kindy pickup!

Take care and thanks for visiting xo

The Color Room #72 + Prima

I hope you are having a great weekend:)  Here is my layout for this weeks palette over at The Color Room ....... as soon as I saw this palette I thought of Sass's Sunshine Broadcast so of course I had to go and find it:)  The colours in it are gorgeous and a touch vintage! 

"About You" 

I have some hidden journalling on here all about Kobi......he is proving to be a little difficult atm!  Thankfully his cuteness makes up for it:)

Here is the delightful palette:)

Through the week I had my first blog post up on the Prima  blog:)  So just thought I would share the 2 layouts here that I featured!

This one is another layout I created for CHA using the Alla Prima range.  It's a beautiful, fun, fresh range with yummy bright colours and polka dots..... I love polka dots:)  And yes, I love a bit of bunting or 2...lol!!


This next one is using more of the Printery line, I don't think I have scrapped much grey before but love how this turned out and matched Mason's cute owl beanie:)  I also used lots of resins here.  Ingvild's resins are just gorgeous, I can't wait to get my hands on more of them:)

"Darling Son" 

Okay, that's about it for today, thanks for stopping by.

More new **Prima**

I would like to share another of my CHA layouts.  This one was using the Printery line.  Now I must admit it really doesn't look like the range but I just can't help myself and add loads of colour:):)  I guess it just proves how versatile this range is.  It's a very neutral range with cute little birdcages, keys and time pieces.

"A Moment to Treasure"

So in love with all of Ingvild's resin pieces, this little bridge is just adorable!

Lots of faves here from this release....Rock Candy, Twisters and of course my fave Prima product of all time, floral vines (any vine will do)!!!

and the new Trinkets are just devine too:)

Work in progress.........

These colours are becoming a bit of a habit aren't they?? Oh well they are my faves!

I know some of you are having trouble with blogger, so am I.  I have been to several blogs lately and it just won't let me leave my little bit of love:(  I am not sure what is going on with it but it's really annoying.  Anyways, have a fantastic weekend.
We are out to dinner tomorrow night and then to Arj Barker (the Comedian) with our friends. Nanny is having a sleepover.  Woo hoo to getting out of the house for a night out...lol!!!

Hugs to you all, thanks for stopping by xo

The Color Room and Prima BAP

Pretty palette this week in the Color Room.  I had a friend with a birthday and thought I would make this page for her of her 2 little girls:):)  She loved it.....but this picture really doesn't do it any justice.  It is sparkly and much prettier in real life!!

"Sweet Beautiful Girls"

Prima's build a page for August is here:)  Check out the sketch here and all of the amazing work from the Prima girls.

"Too Cute"

Hope you have all had a lovely weekend.  I am off to Kindy tomorrow with Cooper, so Kobi is going to tag along with us for the day.....should be loads of fun!

Lots to share today:)

So this is my last month on the Scrap the Boys creative Team:(  I thought it was time to step back and hand the job over to all you other fantastic "boy" scrappers out there!! 
I can't wait to see who is on the new team:)  So this months challange is awesome....just take inspiration from this picture, how cool is this room??

And here is my take on it.....as soon as I saw it I thought nautical (how unusual for me....lol)  I went to my local scrap store with OA "seaside"or Webster's "yacht club" in mind.....they didn't have either so I improvised with a bit of paint and lots of bits and pieces:)  If you have these papers I think they would be perfect for this challenge!!


I made the little fences myself.....easy as, just chopped up chipboard with the points at the end.  I then cut 2 long strips and glued the smaller ones on top (placing them randomly so it looks a bit shabby).  I then just painted (messy) with gesso and crackle paint.  I also distressed it by cutting out little bits here and there.

A Prima page......

"My Everyday Sunshine"

This was a commissioned canvas piece I made for a friend of a friend's little girl.  She just turned 1 and was having a ladybug themed party and wanted a canvas made to put next to her cake and then later on the wall.  I used Prima Sweet Fairy papers and of course lots of blooms:)  And the supercute ladybugs from MLBOW:):)

So just a few closeups now:)  The coloured transparent ladybugs where from Clearcut Crafts.  I have had them for ages and never new how to use them....so perfect for this!!!

Oh my, this little cutie pie is now 8 weeks old.  He had his needles last week and is a chubby 5.2 kg already.  He is just a bit bigger than what Cooper was at the same age....so he's our big boy:)  He is extremely snuggly and just loves cuddles all day if he can (he's on my lap right now while I'm typing).  He only cat naps through the day 1/2 max here and there if I'm lucky.  BUT he does sleep from about 9ish to 5:30ish give or take an hour!  I have been soooooo lucky with my newborns to start sleeping through so soon but in saying that, they get worse as they get older...lol!!!
  Cooper is a shocker and comes in most nights.

So here is just a few pictures of my beautiful 3:)

Mason is so happy, smiley and loves a chat.....I truly am blessed!!!

Thanks so much for popping by, sorry it's a long one....I really need to try and update more regularly, I have so much to share!!!

Hugs xo
