Next Adventure...

Sharing a couple of layouts from this months We Will Rock You kit from  Scraptastic.
This first one shares the story of our unexpected visit to hospital when we visited LA in January 2013 when my son had emergency surgery for appendicitis!

I folded that little paper airplane under the guidance of my son...and hand stitched the flight path!

A cluster of stickers and embellies finish the layout nicely!

My second layout tells the story of my son's love of robotics this year at school!

I hand cut my title from pattern paper!

Have you spotted the newest edition of JOT magazine! It is full of lots of delicious eye candy.

Today I am sharing one of my favourite layouts in the magazine!
This layout tells the story of my son's crazy personality when he puts on his Groucho Marx glasses!

I combined the new Heidi Swapp Project Life cards, using the Favorite Things core kit and Papers  and stickers from the Favorite Things collection.

I added my journaling inside the play card!

The new clear stamps from the Project Life collection are just so fun!

My favourite part might be that punched moustache over the Water Color Star tag!

Remember the magazine is FREE and can be viewed right here!

Fun Stuff....

I am excited to share my first project as Guest Designer for Mei Li Paperie this month.  I met the girls from Mei Li Paperie  when they came to CHA in January  and being fellow Aussies I recognised their accent straight away. So  I was very chuffed when they emailed me recently asking me to guest design for them. They sent me some yummy Basic Grey Second City collection pieces as well as some other goodies.
My first layout uses this months Colour Challenge .

If you want to play along there is a fabulous  Echo Park Creative Agenda prize pack to win. See their blog here to find out all the details.
I loved the bright bold colours and patterns so couldn't go past these crazy fun photos of my eldest recently.

 I teamed the Kelly Purkey papers with that Heidi Swapp Project Life Stamp and added a touch of texture by using the Heidi Swapp Mini pattern stencil with some Matte Gel Medium both which they have in store.

I layered those frames over my photos to hide some distracting figures in the photos.

and of course the all important journaling!

I hope you can play along!
