scraploot DT layouts

Being the first of the month I am so happy to show you my layouts for July for scraploot. This month I got to use some yummy my minds eye star bright papers, American craft thickers, Prima say it in studs-frogs and an A2Z scraplets chipboard frog.

This first one is actually a photo swap with Anthea of her middle boy Wesley, hope she likes it.

Loved using this chipboard frog, he is so cute.

My favourite technique at the moment, hand stitching.

This is actually on old photo of Addison, the same age Larsn is now, wow how different are they.
Hope you like them
Take care

scraploot blog

Today I updated the scraploot blog with a fun technique to liven up your lettering stickers. Here is a little sneak peak, head on over to the scraploot blog to check out the whole story.

This layout I did for aussiepubcalls roadmaps challenge. It was a fun sketch to work with, have used it again already and funnily enough the photo in my second layout of Larsen is almost identical to the photo in my original layout of Addison at about the same age. This is actually a redo of an old layout of Addison's that I could not stand looking at, now I love it.

Thats all for now , remember to call back on the first for my DT layouts for the month of JULY.

Till next time

sitting up

Well finally the little man is sitting up. Not for long only about 15 mins but its a start. No photos yet will when he is more steady.
last weekend we visited our neigbours across the street and it seemed like all the boys in the street were there. They had fun with a new race track that the eldest Hayden had gotten for his birthday. Of course Larsen wanted to get in on the act too. Thanks Taryn for the photos.

This is my layout for the outofthehat challenge blog we had to use stitching, flourishes and a five word title, I doubled up and also used it for my layout for journalit we had to use word strips, this is actually a photo of Addison at 6 months , how different do they both look as Larsen is also 6 months now.

and a close up of my stitching, lovin this technique at the moment.

Will leave you now, have finished my DT layouts for scraploot and sent them off to the shop, very excited to share come back on the 1st for the reveal

till then

goodies to share

Hi everyone, well the little man is now 6 months, who can believe it , he is absolutely loving his food unlike his big brother still waking at night for a feed as well, but he is a happy baby. Its been a bit dreary here so no opportunity for a photo .
On the scrapping front ive been quite busy, i have a few layouts to share.
The first is Larsen's 5 month milestone layout.

This next one is week seven over at wicked princess, we had to create a layout about something we dream or lust about, we had to use the colour blue and 3 chipboard pieces.

Finally my layout for the journalit challenge blog. This fortnight we had to scrap an affirmation. I scrapped about Addison being so FULL OF LIFE

Thats is for now looking forward to the long weekend and going to the papercraft show on Monday with my friend Taryn.
