Tag You're It!

Today I have a tag to share and I love how it turned out. But first, it was my turn to post on Marker Monday over at Lime Tart and I shared some info and pics on how I stamp my images so if you are interested then pop on over here.

I have used Whiff of Joy's 'Willow with Hot Chocolate' and coloured her with Copics of course! For my round tag I used Spellbinders Lacy Circles and added lots of layers :)

A couple of close ups, there is patterned paper and even some hand stitching but you can't see it because of all the yummy layers - so much fun to make!!!!

This mini creation was great fun to make especially when you are a bit short of time, think I am going to make a couple of more to add to my collection for quick thank you or birthday cards! I would like to enter my tag into Whiff of Joy's Challenge #111 - Tag You're It!.

And thank you for popping by and for your lovely comments!!

Children need Love

I have a layout to share with you today, I have used Stuff 2 Scrap chippies Scalloped Border by Leeann Pearce and Hearts #001. The papers are MME Lime Twist, bright and pretty but I think I am leaning more towards rustic colours at the moment maybe because its

The pic is of my DD when she was little and I have used the quote from Scrap the Girls -Children need love, especially when they do not deserve it. ~Harold Hulbert

I couldn't imagine it any other way, I will always love my kids! We have also taught them to always be honest with us even when they know we might not approve of their choices or actions, I hope they will always have an open relatonship with us even when they get to the teenage years :)

Enough waffling from me, I am off to some training and its sooooooo HOT outside today! Thanks for popping by and for your lovely comments!

Lime Tart Gallery

The Lime Tart Gallery has been up for a couple of days already and if you haven't been to have look then you missing!! It is filled with gorgeous inspiration and beautiful projects.

I got to play with the A la Tarte, I love the colours and has so many gorgeous bits and pieces.....stunning!! It had a 6x6 MME Lost & Found Union Square pad but I still did two layouts, so I will share these with you first and then my cards. Oh it also had the most gorgeous background stamp, the finish is like fabric - beautiful!!

This a photo from our last family photo shoot in 2008 just before our big move, I can't believe how time has flown.

I LOVE the buttons!!!!!

And some close ups....

A pic of my gorgeous girl from the same family photo shoot.

Antiquing Tissue Paper

I am finally getting everything unpacked, now I just need to know where I put everything.......LOL. So its taking me a little longer than usual when I am crafting but I guess I will get there but not much is happening because I have been to tired but I have a feeling that is going to change this week! Well enough of my waffling, I just wanted to pop on here and let you know I have a little tutorial up at Lime Tart blog with their gorgeous A la Tarte kit. It was stunning! Unfortunately it has sold out already but you can still get the Full Tart and Half Tart and they are also gorgeous! Here is a peak but pop on over here for a little inspiration with Antiquing Tissue Paper.

Thank you for popping by and for your lovely comments, hope you all have a fabulous weekend!!

I am still here!!

Wow, it feels like ages since I last blogged!! No I haven't been working on my Master's entries, it was so exciting last year seeing one of my entries printed in the Masters Special Edition mag but we have had a crazy year and we moved house so I decided not to enter, time has been an issue. So with the move I have been without internet for 2 weeks..........I tell you its been hard..LOL. More fustrating though, the amount of phone calls I had to make to just get connected, it sent my blood pressure sky high!

I have over 300 emails to go through and lots of catching up to do but it might have been a good thingthough having no connection with all the unpacking I had to do........I hate moving! Anyway amongst all the usual move dramas we had some sad news thrown in and it makes you take a step back and appreciate the little things, take the time to hug your loved ones now and every day and tell them how much you love them!!!

I haven't done much in the creative area but I do have my Lime Tart August kit to share with you so I will be back soon!
