some Lil Red Rocket and Rainbow Splendour...

hello world...................
how are you all.. just here to share a couple of latest creations featuring some of my favourite handmade products....
first up is a lil layout about my boy and his first yappying experience..
"Yabbying"

although he didnt actually catch one he still had fun... 
closies..
a little collage of Scrapmatts and a some Charms Creations Lovely lollipops..
and how fun is that Rainbow Splendour felt tree...

and next up we have something i did for our local challenge group..was all about texture and had to have YELLOW as a predominate colour..
"Lost"
I've had that crafters workshop cloud stencil sitting around for a while and had never used it..so i had a little fun.. unfortunately though I have ran out of texture paste.. its become such a vital and necessary tool for me that i'm seriously going to have to get more and SOON...
closies..
i had started this layout and wasnt going anywhere fast UNTIL the lovely postman pat arrived with a parcel from Lil Red Rocket.. that fixed everything and i ended up using 3 things from the pack.. the Yellow polka dot button and the cute journal card.. so FUN!!
and a denim Pinwheel from Rainbow Splendour and a flag from Lil Red Rocket.......
and to finish it off.. a super cute balloon from ScrapMatts... yay....
love the height in this one.. its pretty simple really but oh so fun...
so the countdown is officially ON.. the Papercrafts expo is on really soon in Brissy and if you are going i will be on the ScrapMatts stand ALL day on the saturday so call in and say howdy..and then on the sunday.. {SQUEEL}.. i 'm doing Louise Nelson's class. .yay.. did one of hers last year and there was no question that i was going to be doing it again this YEAR... and i will also just be cruising around with my peeps so excited..yay..

Rainbow Splendour that is..LOL... so i'm sharing a layout that i created a while back at Gilly's ..inspiration by the most amazing Renee Iveson..she'd done this page using yellow background with the swipes of blue..so i cheated and copied that idea..and then went from there..and this is what happened....
"Yum"

an older rainbow pinwheel..and the denim flower that Geli showed us how to make..and also she made that button as well..too cute..

super BAB blogger award... TICK...

HI all.. well what a bad BAD naughty blogger i have been.. soz about that..
but i'm here today to share some ScrapMatts Inspired projects.............
so first up i have a layout that was recently {a couple months ago} published in Scrapbooking Memories so YEP you probably have seen it..LOL..
"See The World"
See The World
for this project i used just about all the possible combinations available in the scrapmatts gears range..
cb 1072 Gears 01, cb 5005 Gear Frame 01 ..{for this one i actually cut it so that i could use it at the top of the photo as well as a spot down the bottom as an anchor}, cb 1078 Gears 05, cb 4049 Original Moving Gears (A4) but i used not the gears from this pack but the washers....
some closies....


and then anothery.. this time one of my older sister Michelle.. yep my older sister..its so rare to actually get a photo of her..
"Michelle" MIchelle
so what about that hey.. LOL.. and can you see some of my favourite brands mixed in there with the Scrapmatts.. some Lil Red Rocket buttons and a rainbow splendour felt doiley...... oh and THANKS Sharmaine of 4 dollops fame for the inspiration with the chevron Crafters Workshop template... YUM......
closies...
the journalling... and the scrapmatts frame from the cb 4056 Ornate Frames 13 A4 pack. .yep A4 and lots of gorgeousness in those frames i can guarantee that....... dont forget the green Gingham Lil Red Rocket button...
and can you see the other lil red rocket button.. and the gorgeously Green Felt doily from Rainbow Splendour...
so then i created a card.. yep an unusual shaped card at that.... but hey...
"Complete"

Complete {card}
yep see told you was different shaped.. LOL... and a closie..
here i used the cb 5058 Heart Frames.. you get the circle and the heart PLUS some extras.. and cb 1157 Assorted Words 06.. just simply coloured with sharpie and then i went over them with the Stardust pens {also available at scrapmatts} and then covered in the scrapmatts 3d gloss.. love that STUFF.. {which reminds me that i need some more}... lol..
and yep you guessed it anothery.. {oh which reminds me that i still {super slack arse} have some more layouts from the retreat at Gillys that i still havent shown  yet}..lol...
"All Star"
All Star
oh cute is that photo.. just him on his bike.. duck to water he was i must say..he is a HOON on his bike.. so with this one i kept it pretty simple.. just used some cb 5032 Mini Frames 02 to well frame bits.. just random framing and then added some little journalling spots and randoms in there as well.but i LOVE the effect of it..
Closies...


WHOOPS i probably shouldve warned you that this was going to be a LONG post.. hahahaa.. bazinga to you all.. anyho. i will be off.. i hope you have liked these projects and maybe have picked up something from  one of these lil bits of me...
