A FB challenge...

12:53 PM Edit This 1 Comment »
The second challenge this month at Crafty Crops on Facebook was a white with one challenge. Obviously I chose pink. I really enjoyed doing this one, although when you have 2 girls it does seem kinda easy to pick pink!! LOL But anyways I love the result! 
This is Lara with our kitten Tinkerbell, who she always called Diddy, watching TV. That kitty was the most patient animal she would just sit quietly until Lara let her go. There is some journalling on the back of the LO to explain all this as well.
First I sprayed the background with some Glimmermist and them stamped a little bit on there too. I used the Kaiser Bubblegum Hills paper pad, it had the perfect pink and white pp for this challenge. The alphas are some old Heidi Swapp I had in my stash. There's a tiny WOW butterfly on there, they are my new favourite little thing, but that was the last one, must invest in another packet!! There's ZVA pearls and also Basic Grey bling on there. I also used my new Nesties, the Fleur De Lis Rectangles, I love 'em!! Oh and some random buttons.

That's all I have to share today, but I do plan on working on something new this afternoon. Have a scrappy weekend :)

I joined in the sketch challenge at Scrapbook Supplies Online this month. 
This is the sketch for the layout, there is also a card sketch as well. The prize is a $25 voucher!!
 And here is my LO based on the sketch.
I used Echo Park, Country Drive PP and lots of other little bits and pieces, I even dragged out some old rub-ons to finish it off!! I have been pretty good at using some of my older stuff ;)
I love these photos of Lil, it took her ages to catch a butterfly when we visited the butterfly house at Coffs Harbour. When she finally did she just sat there admiring it......

Ok, must be lunch time my tummy is rumbling.
Thanks for looking

Something Different!

12:15 PM Edit This 0 Comments »
Just a quick share today.
On the weekend a good friend of mine showed me how to make this scarf,  I reckon it took me about an hour maybe an hour and a half in between cooking dinner. It's made with special wool that is a bit like netting and I have no idea what it's called but feel free to inform me ;) You only knit with 4 stitches, (or I think you can also use 6) super easy, but very pretty!! 
 Isn't she the best model?!! Super gorgeous.
I found this website on the packaging, it's a wholesale site but you can see the wool there if you want to find some for yourself!
Thanks for stopping by.

Scrappin' up a storm!!

9:29 AM Edit This 0 Comments »
I having been working quite so much lately and I have been filling up my free time by scrapping my little heart out LOL It's been awesome!!
First up I have a couple of DT pages for Scrapsidaisy. This first one I have used Graphic 45, Little Darlings. It's beautiful! The tags and button are the chipboard that match the collection. It's available in a kit or you can purchase the bits individually.
 This one is available in a kit. A beautiful mix of black, white and silver and includes everything you need to complete this LO. Except a white gel pen and adhesives ;)
  This is my niece, isn't she a cutie!! She was cracking up when I was trying to take her photo.
This was an old challenge pack I dug out from my stash. I have really been trying to use what I have here at home. Less work = Less spending money :(
But anyways, not my colours at all, but I do love the way it turned out. There is some hidden journalling behind the photo. It tells the story of the Bazinga title. Who has seen the episode of The Big Bang Theory with Sheldon and the ball pit??
Next up is a page I done for a challenge on Facebook, Crafty Crops, I think it's too late to enter now unless you can whip up a vintage page before 7pm tonight, I just finished mine last night :/ But stop by and check out the page anyways and maybe join in the next challenge! 
I used October Afternoon and Graphic 45 PP, ZVA bling, some misting, my crocheted heart and some gorgeous goodies from Jules Gems. I busted out the sewing machine too.
 I actually done this next LO before the last one so technically I busted out the sewing machine for it first LOL But yeah I was loving it this week.
This is my Nan and Me. This was the last photo I ever had taken with her :( hence the title.
I have used Kaiser, Pink Gelato PP some WOW chippie butterflies, Prima and other assorted flowers and some more Jules Gems, have you been to check out her FB store yet??
I also used paint on the background, just in case you didn't notice LOL
And that's it for now.
Hope your all having a fabulous weekend. I intend to spend the rest of mine scrapping a bit more doing the washing or something else that exciting!!
Thanks for looking
Beckie

P.S. Please leave me comment if you drop by! Or do I really just have one friend?? :/

March Already!!

8:06 AM Edit This 1 Comment »
Wow this year is just flying by too fast. Easter is just a month away and then it will be Christmas!!  LOL
Anyways no matter how fast the time goes, I have been finding time to fit in some scrapping. This first LO is my biggest baby girl, such a gorgeous thing she is, takes after her Mumma :P I used Graphic 45 pp, a beautiful paper doily that I found in one of the bargain shops, some Prima flowers and a mix of other flowers. The tag is a Kaiser tag and some thickers for the title.
 Now I'm not exactly sure what the PP is on here. It's an older kit that I pulled out and really wanted to use. I know the background paper is from Pink Paislee. There is some nice little metal embellies on there, that I got from Jules Gems, and also the crocheted flower. The title I cut with the cuttlebug from foam and them put some glossy accents on to make it nice and shiny!! This is a LO of my youngest baby girl, just for the record!
And then *shock* a boys page!! My newest little nephew.
I used October Afternoon, Ducks in a Row pp. He also got flowers and bling because I
don't seen to be able to help myself!! I used Thickers for the title.
That's about it for today. Hope you are safe where ever you are in the world. Have a lovely weekend :)
