the Halloween mystery...

It's almost Halloween and today I want to share a project I have up on the Heidi Swapp blog this week.This photo is of my youngest on his first Halloween , he looked so cute as Robin at just 10 months old.
My project  is a little bit special as I have something hidden......
I started with a base Of Vintage Chic pattern paper and added some Digi downloaded Halloween words from Heidi's shop.

 My base for my photo is a Mini Vintage file folder.
 Sneaking in some Halloween flair buttons from Greatest View.
love these Instaframes and black velvet Colorshine.

 and now to my hidden surprise....
 I created a pop up bat with my new toy- my Cameo.!

I have a tutorial up on the Heidi Swapp blog explaining how I created my pop up bat!

DON'T FORGET about my  *GIVEAWAY* here for a chance to win a spot in Heidi Swapps online class.

he is 6

My eldest turned 6 recently and I wanted to record some of the things that are special about him at this point. I love the bright happy colours of Bella Blvd's  Birthday Boy collection, they suited my photo perfectly!

 This week over on the Bella Blvd Facebook page Stephanie has a fun colour combo challenge happening, all you need to do is create a project using these colours and post it on the FB page to be in the running for a fun prize!
 I created this super quick card to play along!

This layout was recently up on the Pebbles blog. I love the special little friends my boys have in their lives, this layout celebrates that!

 For my American friends anyone in the Utah area BasicGrey is having an awesome Warehouse sale, should be lots of fabulous bargains!!

The excitement....

Don't you just love the colours and smell of the fair, recently we took out boys to their first local fair, they had a ball!
I took the chance to use the new Colorshine mists from Heidi Swapp to really celebrate the excitement we all felt! The Colorshine mists combined with the Color Magic paper really adds a fun dimension to my layout.
I also created a step x step video utilizing some Colorshine tricks of the trade I have learnt along the way.

I began with some Colormagic paper and sprayed it with Mustard colorshine then added a Mini Memory file found here.

 Sneaking in a Greatest View "say what"  button.

I created these two tone letters using the Heidi Swapp resist letters and tinsel and teal Colorshine mist available here in Australia.

Love these fotostacks, the really allow you to add so many photos to your project!

If you are looking for the Colorshine mists and other Heidi Swapp goodies in Australia, don't forget you can purchase them here at The Scrapbook Store!
Thanks for visiting!

My  youngest is off to pre school next year, although it's only 3 days a week I am going to miss my everyday outings with him. I have used this months sketch over at Once Upon A Sketch to complete my layout,we had the additional criteria of using a quote, you can  find both here.
I have used lots of Heidi Swapp goodies here including papers from the No Limits collection, Color Magic tags and Color Shine mist, my tags are from Elle's Studio and of course my flair buttons, the speech bubble and triangles are from Greatest View.

I'm also excited to share a sneak peak of a new collection coming soon from Bella fun!
