...milky way...

This month over at Once Upon a sketch we had the opportunity to team up with CSI challenges, it was fun to play along. I was a part of the fourth round challenge. We had to use this image/sketch/colour combo for inspiration.( Don' t forget as always there must be journaling on your layout somewhere to be eligible to win a prize. I hope you can play along too!

 Oh how I love these speech bubble buttons from Greatest View.

My journaling is hidden under my photo that completely comes away from my layout, I have used magnets to hold the pieces together!

Just popping in to share a layout that was up on the BasicGrey blog recently. My oldest who is in prep this year is really coming along with his reading ...I am very proud of him!
I have mainly used the yummy PB&J collection from BasicGrey.

My journalling is hidden under this that back to school button from Greatest View.

Bubble baths...

I'm finally getting around to sharing some of my projects I created for the Heidi Swapp Media team call. For this one I created a layout/ Memory folder using some No limits folders, papers and goodies! I LOVE that you can fit so many photos on a project without it looking cluttered but it still fits in your album!

 Love that Greatest View moustache button!
 The memory file open!
 The left page
 Flap with extra photos!

the talker...

My youngest has always been a fabulous talker, he is the talker while my eldest is the thinker. I wanted to celebrate this with a layout using some older photos from when he was 16 months. I have used the fun and colourful Sunnyside collection from Pebbles.

Another fun speech bubble button from Greatest View. I have just ordered another set I am using them on so many layouts!

Aspen Frost Blog Hop

                                                 *GIVEAWAY NOW CLOSED* 

Welcome to the BasicGrey Aspen Frost Blog Hop!
  You should have arrived here from the blog of Jocelyne Cutchins OHSCRAP
Charming and familiar, wild and sweet, a juxtaposition of Christmas past and present, Aspen Frost by BasicGrey holds all the joy and tradition of a homespun holiday. In neutral birch, iced cranberry, red hot cinnamon, dazzling white, glacier blue and green apple, Aspen Frost is the comfort and blessing of yummy pies, sparkling drinks and a warm flame burning in the hearth.

Since I live in Australia we do not have a cold Christmas so I decided to use the collection for a non Christmas project. I chose some photos from my honeymoon 7 years ago in the Rockies. I love the snow flake stickers- the white on white feel adds to the Winter feel to my layout. I added some hidden journalling under the photo block for a bit of fun as well!

This week over on the Heidi Swapp blog we are celebrating all things Instagram! Have you joined yet?
 I love it, its so easy to upload and share photos straight from my iphone with a click of a button... I would love for you to follow me (see the link on my side bar) or give me a shout out so I can follow you!
So Heidi asked us to create a project using Instagram photos. I couldn't go past these photo's of my youngest taken recently when he had his face painted...when I uploaded them to instagram I was shocked at  how old he looked, he was not my baby I wanted to record those feelings for my self and him.
If you know me and my scrapping you will always find journalling on my pages, for this project I created a little secret hidden journalling with a couple of magnets, you will see my journaling spot comes completely off the layout  to reveal my journalling underneath....pop on over to the Heidi Swapp blog to see how I created it!

 Do you spy that fabulous Greatest View animal print button!
