perfecting the pin drop

This one is one of my all time faves. I just love the tropcial feel to it, the sewing and the little cluster of embellies.

merit award

Had a bit of fun making a shaker box with mesh and sequins with this one. To keep the colour sequins from mixing, I ran the LO through a sewing machine, sewing diagonally from corner to corner leaving a little gap to pour the sequins into each pocket. Then I sewed that gap closed. Easy Peasy.

love

Without a doubt, every time I want to journal in a circle I need to google/YouTube how to do it. And I'm pretty sure every time I do I find a new way of doing it.  Always learning new tricks.

leap of faith

I had a little whoopsie with the f on this one. While sewing the line of thread the f got all hooked up in the foot of the sewing machine. I ended up raising the foot and hand winding the wheel and manual feed the page through over that bit of it to get it done. I then had to come back and make a couple of small cuts with my craft knife to get the f to sit flat again.

That little awesome icecream used to be a paperclip that I've had since forever, found in Kmart.

well hello there

This LO was pretty emotionally tough to do. Dad passed away last August and its nearly the anniversary of when he left us.  but I am so very very thankful for the photos I have of him with his grandkids.

Dominoes was always played when the kids visited. It was their game of choice.


Thank you Amy for he perfect domino embellishment.

happy

Amy let me know about this amazing paddock of salvation jane (patterson's curse) that she seen because she knew I was looking for one for a photoshoot with my kids back in 2011. (I've just noticed I had 2010 stamped on this LO).

So I packed up the kids one afternoon after school and off we went. And the late light was perfect, it was calm and and warm. And I've had many photos to scrap from this shoot.  Gotta love that.

crappy carp

I seem to be leaning more towards templates for my scrapbooking. I guess its because I have a selection of photos for that story/occasion and I can't just settle on one to tell the story.  This LO is the perfect example.

I do love printing directly onto linen texture white card to get that canvas look. Lots of white space on this one and that little fish I've had for a looooong time waiting for a fishing LO.

cool kid

2011 was so long ago. Large photos make for easy and quick documenting a moment in time.
