Page Drafts Christmas Edition

A little Christmas
Welcome to "Page Drafts Christmas Edition"
This is the awesome sketch I chose ...catch the rest over at Page Drafts...
 Ahhhh Christmas Gotta be the best Time of the year Yer??
 Here Is my Gorgeous Boy ( sorry bias I know xx)
This photo I love we were up some side street in the heat
waiting for mum to pick us up after the Pagant,
Our first one together...
He was so excited which just made it even more special for me too!!
So this is my interpretation of "Em's Sketch......
These gorgeous papers I used are from an old fav of mine
"Maja Design"
 and the music note is from Melissa Frances 
Indulging in a few close ups.....
I have made pinecones from "Tim Holtz Die"
 my flowers are from magnolia Doohicky Die Poinsettia,
There's some Obsession Impression and Cheery Lyn in there too!!

I embossed the edges and used my Favourite "Snow"
On the Title and Flags/banners..

Close up of my flower... preety Huh!!

Our challenge was to incorporate a Number in our layout
so being our 1st pagent I incorporated the number one
 just above the pinecones and on the flower!!
Here Is a close up of the stencil work ( Tim's Of course!!)
I used model paste then sprinkled embossing powder over it
as I heated it puffed up really nicely!!

Here's a close up of some more details and layers....

(And my little Toothless Boy heehee sooooo cute!!)

Christmas Family traditions
lol "EAT lots!!"
One tradition I guess you can call it that,
is making Christmas slices for our family and
Christmas Day.......and for the next 3 weeks LOL!!
 So I have such fond memories
Of mum and I (and my sibs when they wanted too)
would spend a day making all these yummy
So in tradition My son and I carried it on and we spend a day or 2
making Christmas slices ( great teachers gift!!)
As he loves to cook with me and it was such a special time for me
I wanted to share the same with my boy!
Although have to watch the " Quality Control" heeeheee!!
Well You have to taste to see if they're ok!!
Don't you??? wink!!
Anyway I cant wait to hear about your traditions and see your interpretations
of Em's sketches....
Here's wishing you all a very ,very,
"Merry Christmas"

Happy Craftin

I Got My "Christmas" on !!!!!

Good Morning all, and welcome to my little blog!!
It's been a while since my last post I know....
My little one and I have been really crook so
it's been a bit crazy but we're all better and back on track
Did I say that allowed shhh!! (wink!!)..
Anyway here is my next creation for
"Page Drafts" 
Em' came up with some gorgeous sketches
what am I talking about ..

you can check them all out and my  Amazing Teamies work here....

I just love these photos ...it gives you the true Joy of Christmas...
 the surprise and the awesome reaction that are kids!!
Hence my Title
"Christmas Joy"

I have used the ever gorgeous and a personal  Fav.. Graphic 45 papers
"Christmas Emporium".
And teamed it up with my gorgeous Prima Flowers and trims.
Our tips and tricks this month are a Fav of mine..
Using stitching, fibres lace ect..
So my helpful tips are..
If you don't have a sewing machine "Fake it"
Faux stitching...you can see I have used a white pen and
stitched (drawn) around my photo, flags and drops on my stars ect...
Use up your smaller pieces off cuts of trims/laces, great saver for your budget too..
Waste not Is my motto!!
Just a few close ups and details xx

I have used some of Primas' bloom sprays to spray up my roses
tea stain and gold foil!! Yummmmmmy!!
I also used some of Finn's glitter and her opaque 3d paste.....
This stuff is awesome !!
Threw in some bells, holly and sequins and
well this is it!!

Gotta admit do love a good snowflake or too !!
One day I will have a white Christmas LOL!!
Take care and keep well,
Till next time xxx

"Sun, Surf and Sandcastles"...

We had a theme of vacation, so these pictures where
taken a couple of years back
on our first  family vacation
at the gorgeous "Sellicks Beach".

We spent the morning jumping waves ( too our ankles lol!!)
and collecting shells...I have used some in my LO and of course
the best part we made "sandcastles".
A few close ups...

I used the Prima princess collection of papers, their gorgeous new doily die
and a vine of stars and pearls, sorry lost the packaging!!
The other dies are from Impression Obsession and MFD.
Tim Holtz glitter and antique linen distress glitter,
Prima's bloom sprays and stencils , some sequins  and some gesso!!

Prima May Bap

Lots of Layers and some Mixed Media!!
Hi all and welcome to my blog!!
Well I have been busy and keeping my
promise to update regularly !!
Life throws us some doozies as we all know
and I guess we can get caught up with all
the negative stuff and forget
to "Stop And smell the roses"
So I have been trying to put my not so happy
thoughts into my art....as you do!!
Well it's what makes us happy, me happy :)!!
So I have been having a go at this yummy
"Mixed Media", it's funny
Been doing it for as long as I have been doing my art
I guess but it's something that we all incorporate
into our cards/ layouts without even realising!!
Stamping ,painting, sploshing, stencilling,
using fabrics, papers ect....
So anyways I thought I'd have some fun
with this and really make my page POP
so I doodled, painted, splotched (lol) even threw in some
sequins for good measure!!
Love these photos, took these of my son and his "BF",
down at our park, they're in a cardboard box !!
They had a free family day and there was a maze made out of
huge boxes ....how to entertain kids for ages...BOXES!!!
Great day and they loved this maze!!
So enough rambling, I came up with this LO and am entering
it into Prima's May Bap
Here's their awesome sketch ...

Cool hey!!
and here are my photos of my interpretation....
Hope you enjoy!!

The sketch called for some check patterns, so
of course used my 2nd fav stencil Fin's checks....
sploshed that around with some gesso, and covered that
with some glimmer mists and silks "Guatemalan Green", 
Dragonfly, trunk bay glimmers!!
Modelling paste with the new paint splots prima stencil
Sorry my bad forgot the name shhh!!

Cut out some hearts, butterflies and leaves with white glitter paper
my stash... incorporated some yummy
resins and lushes flowers Prima, Prima Baby!!
Ohh and had a bit of fun with their black wire too...

Close Ups!!

I have a love for corrugated card too so threw some of that in for an extra layer
Or two!! Doily's and some divine chippy corners  !!


So love the colours in this, they really bring the colours in the photos out!!
Hope you enjoyed this
Please  Leave some love (wink, wink:)!!)
And have a great week...till we meet again xxx
