Lime Tart - Love

Back again with another layout using Lime Tart's gorgeous Half Tart.

This photo was from a family photo shoot back in 2008, how time flies!

I made heaps of roses from one of the sheets of patterned paper, I wanted to keep the colours of my layout pretty neutral and subtle.

I layered my photo on a doily, love the delicate touch the doily brings to this layout.

I had a bit of fun with this one, I played with some textured paste and a Prima stencil and finished off my background with some Distress Ink once it had dried.

Randomly added some white mini roses amongst the beige/cream roses and added a simple tag with the word 'love', I think that's all I needed to sum up this photo. My family is love and mean the world to me!

I don't think my photo's really capture this layout, it is so delicate and pretty and I love how it turned out. But somehow I think I just took pretty poor photo's, oh well I probably need to brush up on my photography skills............LOL!

Thanks for stopping by and for your lovely comments, I hope you have an awesome long weekend.

Lime Tart - Beautiful

I am so behind in blogging, well basically everything at the moment! So I am quickly popping on to share some photo's of my creations with Lime Tarts Half Tart, another gorgeous kit!

Loved the gorgeous combination of colours! For the background I used one of my new stencils by Prima and Distress Ink Tattered Rose.

The doily's are included in the kit and they always add a beautiful finish to your projects, I used it as the base to my little cluster and title.

A close up of the seal and some hand made roses.

I made a tag to add some personal journaling, this photo is from her 11th birthday last year.

Another close up, I fussy cut some circles from the patterned paper and layered them randomly around my layout.

Thank you for stopping by, I will be back with some more using the gorgeous Half Tart.

We have a little project going on at our home, we are just waiting for cooler weather before we start but the kids are super excited. We are starting our own vege garden so I have created a mini album to record the different stages and everyone's involvement with the goal being picking our own vege's to eat! So I have this darling image for my cover  'Love Grows Happiness', perfect don't you think?

The box you see in the background is a special box to germinate the seeds before we transfer them to our garden and some packets of our vege seeds.

A close look at my cover, I have used some of my favourites again. WOJ 'Sweet Tags with Hearts' die, WOJ Button Twine, the gorgeous charm is from WOJ 'Foodlovers', the papers are MME 'Tangerine', doily from my stash, alphas and flower are Prima.

This is the inside, I chose a mini album that has pockets so I can add extra photo's, you can see this where I have inserted a tag. I will be back when we start our vege garden and show you my album as we go along.

I hope you have enjoyed this and the rest of the DT's awesome creations, your next stop is the lovely Vicky's blog.

The Sketchy Challenges #43

We have another gorgeous sketch for you and this fortnight its by the lovely Jane, you can find her sketch here.

I created a card for a boy this time and I must admit I do find this somewhat challenging, I want add more but there is not much available for boys. But I inked up WOJ 'Mechanic Henry' and had some fun colouring him in.

The cute little WOJ car charm and WOJ 'You Are My Hero' sentiments made it a little easier to create this boy card! Papers are MME, I finished it off with some washi tape, twine and a button.

Thanks for stopping by and for your lovely comments, hope you can join us.
