November ScrapBursts..

Over at Scrapville, Janet has been running 4 ScrapBursts & here is the criteria

This layout is to incorporate Metals - this can be embellishments, metal foil, charms - as long as there is a healthly balance on the page you'll be ok.

Ah Ha - and it can be by hand or machine, as long as we have at least 25% of stitching used on your layout, which is more than just the border girls, so get creative!

Ok, following the list you will need to have ALL of the following incorporated into your layout:
1 x bling shape/pattern/word
2 x photos 
3 x frames
4 x patterned papers
5 x brads
    This layout is to incorporate Embossed Papers, whether you add them or emboss your own.  Your layout must include at least 1/3 ofEMBOSSED paper/s.

    So I played around with the metals I had plus some silvery & shiny bits & bobs & came up with my LO titled Pizzazz & Fun.

    For my stitching LO I choose these wonderful photos of young Ben..ahhh

    Next it was numbers...and I choose to scrap Tashi graduating from Year 12...The Graduate...

    And the last Burst - embossing.  I choose this wonderful photo of Jade's Pete, with his brother & dear mum....top photo hey!!

    I hope you are happily scrapping too!

    Nanny Love at Scrap Jacked

    I decided to join in at Scrap Jacked again this month& so used Jeanenne's fabulous LO titled 'My Mowing Hat' as my inspiration.  I have used similar colours & her sketch to create a page about Debbie & Harry at a fab picnic recently.  What a gorgeous photo that Jadie took. I love it! 

    What a gorgeous array of pages to inspire you there...why not pop over & take a look?

    Warm & snuggy with Kraft it UP

    I believe that I look blissful in this photo..and I was.  My little Benni was so wonderful (& still is, of course 30 years down the track) & so I deceided to use this photo for my LO for KIU this month.  The criteria is 'journaling' something that I am finding easier & easier to do as I go along. And here is a closeup with my journaling. I just love Kraft & adore textures with it, so misted & doodled & affixed bits & bobs, & enjoyed the whole process.

    Thank you for taking a peek.

    Long time..no blogging

    I have been on a marvellous retreat with the lovely ScrapBoutique gals the weekend before last - here I am with the amazing Leanne. What a top weekend!

    And then a trip up to Brissie to see my grand daughter Tashi's Year 12 Graduation, & then see her all dressed up for her Formal as well.  Spent some lovely time with Jadie & her Pete & all the Willis clan too.

    Then on Sunday night - The Moody Blues in concert!

    So got to get into the scrapping again soon...or I will be left behind!!

    I will also catch up on my blog reading too...just been out of time lately!
