I went back to the dreaded "Photos To Scrap" folder today and was determined to use another older photo. This one is from March last year!!!! I am soooo Anyways I was in the mood to try something a little different today so I came up with this layout. I have a "THING" for unusual colour combinations lately and I just can't help putting some unlikely combos together. This was basically burgundy and aqua but I left all the chipboard natural to throw a little extra into the mix :)

Teresa Collins PP - Friendship : LYB PP - Love Letters : Queen & Co Felt : Buzz & Bloom - That 70's Alphabet : Scrapware - Clouds : Kaiser - Ink & Pearls : Jones Tones Puff Paint : Webster's Pages - Ball Trim : Prima - Say It In Crystals : A2Z Scraplets - Bird : Journaling Pen

And I have to ask the question again. Why do all kids love feeding ducks????

Also I received this lovely award today from Corrina at My Scrap Burrow. Thank you so much :)

I am supposed to pass it on to 6 people but I always feel like a big meanie giving it to 6 because there are plenty of inspirational bloggers out there who equally deserve an award. So I am calling this one a freebie. Please feel free to grab it and display it on your blog and pass it on to some more beautiful people who deserve a little sunshine :)

A Misty Magical Morning

If you lived in outer western Sydney like me you would have seen a magical sight this morning. While driving the kids to school I looked up to see the Blue Mountains covered in misty clouds. Beautiful!!!
It reminded me of a photo I took last year on another drive we had up the mountains one day. It was cold and wet and very misty but there is always something magical about walking around on a day like that.
Anyway I came home and found the photo in my "Photos To Scrap Folder" and came up with this layout. Now I feel really good because I promised I would try and catch up on scrapping that

Have Faith

I had the opportunity to use a new set of Spellbinders Paper Arts dies that were released at CHA last month.
The gorgeous Cross Collection produces beautiful, elegant crosses in 4 shapes and sizes.

I was originally going to make an Easter card with these but decided to keep it a multi-purpose card and used the Have Faith stamp from the JustRite Tiny Words Set inside the card.
I couldn't decide which of the crosses I liked best so I layered all of them on top of each other using foam tape.

The full product list can be viewed here

This gorgeous set should be available in Australia next month :)

New JustRite Stamps

Just a quick post today to share a card I made as part of my CPT work for DownUnder Direct. I used one of these gorgeous new JustRite Stamps from the Beautiful Blossoms set that were released at CHA last month. Absolutely gorgeous and they should arrive here in Australia soon.

Here is the card I made

Bazzill : Bazzill Just The Edge : Bazzill In Stitchz Piercing Tool & Mat : Spellbinder Scalloped Oval : Copic Markers : Zing Embossing Powder - Chestnut : My2Angels - Pearls : Ribbon : VersaMark Ink

I got to play with my new toy for this card. After years of deliberation (I don't know why it took me so long), I finally purchased a Heat Tool and Embossing Powders from My2Angels. If only I knew how addictive and fun that was going to

P.S. The heat tool just happens to be pink. I think that's half the fun!!!
