Scrapbook Fantasies May Page Competition.

I've had these photos lying around for a while. They've been stuck to the fridge with magnets dropped on the floor, lost in a pile of papers on the bench and then returned to the big pile of photos. Naturally distressed photos from all the love they have endured. A friend took them for me so I don't have any copies in better condition so I decided to use them on my layout as is. I think these black and white photos go great with this paper range. At least now these photos will be looked after better than before. I've also added a few close ups of details as well.
The May Competition Pack can be purchased from Scrapbook Fantasies.

Scrapbook Fantasies Weekly Challenge #14

Here is my layout for the Scrapbook Fantasies Weekly Challenge #14.

I'm trying to use up my old flat flowers by layering them up a little. I've also been using small scraps of patterned to make leaves to place around my flowers to bulk them up as well. I have used half a chipboard butterfly to make wings, a chipboard flower in the centre of the flower at the top right of my layout and also a tiny chip board bird and butterfly as flower centres.

I taught my first Scrapbook Class.

A few weeks ago Alicia from Scrapbook Fantasies gave me the opportunity to teach my very first Scrapbook Class at her store. I'd just like to say thank you to Alicia and also to the lovely ladies that came along. (If you happen to be reading this) I hope you all enjoyed the class as much as I did. The class kits were made up of Kaisercraft Technologic Collection patterned papers, twine, mist and crystal gems. Everyone was kept busy with distressing edges, inking, misting and fussy cutting.

A sneak peek of the Kaiser Technologic Class I taught.

Fairy Canvas

I think this is the quickest canvas that I've ever made. We found the birthday invitation in my daughters school bag on the Friday afternoon and the party was for that weekend. 
There is a little story behind why we chose to do this particular fairy. Most mornings before school I'd draw pictures to colour in with my daughter in her classroom. Her little friends would see us and also ask if I'd draw pictures for them. This was one of  the most popular requests apart from "can I please have a mermaid?" So I thought that it would have a little meaning to her seeing as it was something she did most mornings with my daughter and I. 
Apart from drawing and painting the fairy I did some paper piecing and also used texture paste for her hair. We cut the letters and flowers from my Cricut Machine to personalise it even more. 

Dinosaur Card

This is a card I made for my son's friend for his recent Dinosaur themed birthday on the weekend.

Owl Canvas

Just popping by to share an Owl canvas that We put together for my daughter's little friend for her birthday. Her party was owl themed and when we arrived at the party her Mum said she has a thing for them at the moment. I love making these as gifts and adding an activity book of some sort as well. I now keep some small canvases on hand for those unexpected parties that pop up.

Birdy Card.

Only a few months late posting it here, but just thought I'd share it anyway.
