Family photos :)

 Hi there!!  I just wanted to stop by with a few photos that have been taken over the past few months! For the first time I had some maternity photos taken back in September.  I am so glad I had these taken as Jagger completes our family!  I just wanted to share a few photos that our photographer captured just perfectly.  The second session we had was the family/newborn shoot (he was 10 days old).  Can't wait to get canvases of these!!  Love our family of 6!

Photographs by Jabbi Photography (maternity and newborn shoots)

The Christmas photos taken down the bottom where by me!  Merry Christmas to you all, I hope you had a super fun day......much love!

His First Christmas - Shimmerz

Hello there!
Today I have a layout to share of my bubba's first Christmas photo.  I have used lots of different Shimmerz products here along with lots of embellishments.
'1st Christmas'

Here are the Shimmerz products I used :)
Coloringz in Well Blue Me Down
Dazzlerz in Licorice Stick
Texturez in Patina
Shimmerz in Royal Red
Blingz in Hi Ho Silver
Inklingz in Blue Lagoon
I really love this colour combo together!!  Just a touch of red and my favourite turquoise tones!
Here are some closeups for you.......
I painted the background first with the Licorice Stick Dazzlerz.  Once it dried I applied some Patina Texturez to a star stencil.
Thankyou for visiting today :)

December Album + Cards

Hi there, this week on the Pretty Little Studio blog I shared my December Album cover.  Now I didn’t exactly call this a December daily because I know there is no chance of me filling a page for everyday…..life is just too busy for that!  But I thought I would still make a little album where I could just add a few special photos from all of the happenings of December.  I have used a 4 x 4 album and filled it with random pieces of paper from the Merry and Bright collection.  I can always add to the inside if I need too.  I created my cover using lots of gorgeous Merry and Bright embellishments.  I didn’t go down the traditional road for colours, I love that this collection has lots of colours to pick from!  And of course it had to feature a sprinkling of pretty gold!!
Pretty Little Studio Product Used:
Clear: Be Merry Red
Paper: Candy Cane Swirl, Custard, Spearmint Tea, Fresh Snow, Shortbread Pink and Mint
Embellishments: Flair What Fun, Frames Fa-la-la-la-la, Stickers Christmas Word Flags, Stickers What Fun Words, Stickers Christmas Gold Word Flags
Some closeups.........

I also just want to share a couple of quick cards I whipped up for Mason's Kindy teachers. 
It's funny, I didn't have any flowers on this one until Mason told me to go put some on.....it just wasn't pretty enough....lol!!!!
Have a wonderful night xxx

Advent Calendar

Hi there!!!  It has come to my attention that I really need to share my Advent Calendar before the year gets away from me!!  This is my very first Advent Calendar I have made and I must say the boys are absolutely loving it!  From lollipops to chocolate coins to books to a treasure hunt, they are loving all the fun stuff happening in these little boxes!  And its only day 8....lol!!! 
I picked up a heap of little boxes and paper bags from Spotlight.  I decorated them all using the Merry and Bright collection from Pretty Little Studio.  I made some envelopes from the 8x8 paper in the collection.  I shabbied up the look by adding lots of Gesso, Shimmerz and other bits and pieces.
I finished it off by tying all boxes, bags and envelopes to a piece of driftwood I found at our beach house.  I then topped it off with all the boys initials. 
Here are some closeups of all those pretties!

Shimmerz "Hello Love"

Hi there.   Today I have a creation to share with loads of pretty Shimmerz colours.  I must say the new Creameez are so so addictive.  I just love them and the colours are just stunning.  Here is a list of what products I used:
Colouringz in Well Blue Me Down and Oh Say Can You Sea
Inklingz in Blue Lagoon
Shimmerz in Antique Lace
Creameez in Good Ol' Summer Time, My Clementine and Get Glowing
"Hello Love"

I added some of the Creameez to this clear transparency sheet, the effect was fantastic.
I let the Coloringz run down the page and added flickers of Well Blue Me Down.   I just love the way the gold and peach colours blended together. 

I then pulled out my old favourite Shimmerz in Antique Lace.  I added splashes of this to the flower tips as well as the Wood Veneer pieces.

I have a card to share today aswell :)

Lots of layers..........

Have a wonderful day, thankyou for visiting xxxx
