He Loves His Family

Oh my goodness it has been so cold this weekend, so under layers of clothing and blankets I had a little play.

You would think it was perfect weather to get heaps done but this girl just isn't used to the cold weather any more. I pulled out my Glitz design stash and I managed (in the cold) to get this layout done.

This is a family pic from 2009, we are in need of getting some new ones taken. This months challenge at Glitz Designs is to focus on the men so this is for my hubby. And some close ups.

Well I am off to make myself a cuppa to warm up and hopefully scrap again.

Thanks for stopping by and for your lovely comments!

Whiff of Joy Challenge - Stair Step Card

Another Whiff of Joy Challenge has gone up - Stair Step Card. I have to be honest, I think this is the first time I have ever made one!

This WOJ stamp - Maya Watching a Ladybug was perfect for my card. You can't really see to well but I have used WOJ's Picket fence die and WOJ's Grass die.

I battled to get a decent pic with this one, my camera was not playing nice with me. The front is in focus but the back isn't - sorry! So I tried again from a slightly different angle.

Maya has been coloured with Copics and fussy cut, the stamped flowers are from the same stamp but just the flowers have been stamped a few times, coloured with Copics and fussy cut. And then finished off with some WOJ twine (love this stuff!), a sentiment and Wild Orchid flowers.

Thanks for stopping by and for your lovely comments!

Lime Tart Gallery Release

Its that time again....woohooooo.........I love the gallery release each month, so much inspiration and gorgeous creations!!! So have a look here and see what the rest of the awesome ladies did!

I got to play with the beautiful Half Tart this month. First up I have a layout of my gorgeous family, its a couple of years old but I still have heaps of older photo's to scrap plus it brings back so many memories of when the were little :)

And some close ups.

And then using these gorgeous bright papers I attempted to scrap a boys layout. A little different for me but I am pretty happy with it, ok maybe not the handwritten journalling though.

And some close ups.

Now a pretty and girly layout of my baby girl.

More close ups.

Included in the kit is this cute little cloud and rainbow so I made a bright sunny card to cheer someone up.

So grab yourself a cuppa and head on over to Lime Tart's Gallery!
