Show Us Your Stuff and 123.....

hi .. i have a couple today... first up..... is the 123 Challenge.....
and the brief....
Word = MY
Colour = PURPLE
Technique = CHEVRON
and here is  my take on the challenge.. {please excuse dodgy pic.. horrible weather.. i'm sure you understand}
"My Child"
love these photos.. YUP from my phone... Ivy being well IVY..... playing in paint and just being crazy.. and YEP i do think she gets some of that from me.. {poor child}
 i had to search my stash for purple..and i have only 1 sheet of purple pp and alas it just wasnt going to work..so instead i created my background with Texture paste and my Chevron  Crafters Workshop Template.... and then just added some purple embellies.. like the Leeann Pearce Bird pin....
 and some Rainbow Splendour pinwheel and felt die square... {i glimmermisted it purple ... } and added a Lil Red Rocket button to the pinwheel for more PURPLE....
and a closie of the photos.. see told you she is crazy...

and then its that time for a new example from SHOW US YOUR STUFF.. 
now you may or may not know that we are only doing one challenge per month now so this one
has been going for a little while..but us DT peeps are staggering the examples just to keep your 
brain working.....
and here is the inspiration for this month......

and here is what i got.. i LOVED the newsprint background..so i created on..and then the circles of 
course.....
"Time To Learn Letters"
 whoops.. just realized its another Ivy pic.. but oh well.. promise my next one may or may not be IVY..lol.
i really kind of like how this turned out..even with a gazillion {or what feels like a gazillion} flowers ......

 see the background.... i love creating this type of stuff.. so MUCH fun.. oh and also some watercolour paints .. lovin them as well.....
 and a cluster of... well.. stuff... some D-Lish flowers, a Manor House HUGE flower.. and of course some Scrapmatts Leaves and clock and Lil Red ROcket. buttons and cute little girl spot....
 and then some more funky clusters... Rainbow Splendour  flower pin and a pinwheel.. and scrapmatts leaves and of course the button and felt flower from lil red rocket...

 and lastly the photo... taken while watching Ivy practice writing her letters... she is getting there... and loves to learn so that i think is a blessing.. anyho.. dont forget to head on over to Show Us Your Stuff and have a go.....
happy days.
enjoy..
and please dont forget to leave some love....

a day of Littles.....

hello world..
its my ScrapMatts day.. 
and the theme this month is all about the little things.. ATC, Card and Tags..
well I Tried.... but first up i'll share a couple of layouts that i have been playing with.
first up.
"He Loves Me"

i LOVE love using these photos from my phone..and here i've printed them smaller and in a line for some funky effect.. love it.... {thank you photo of the month for letting me take more photos..granted from my phone.. but i'm loving it....}  and now for some closies...
the photos.. and a Lil Red Rocket BUTTON and HEART.. how fun are they.. and to boy it up..a gear from scrapmatts.. woot woot...
and then to add something to the top of the pp Matte i've used a heap of cb 1078 Gears simply coloured black and lined up.. looks cool i'm lovin it..... 
and den..
for something a heap different.. i started this background.. hated it..and put it in the i'll get back to that one pile...anyho Tracey had seen it started and when she slept over the other night asked about it..so bugger it i thought and i pulled it out and started stapling randoms to it.. "What photo are you using??" she asked.. i replied "I have NO idea".. which isnt a new thing for me... i often start something with no idea which photo i will put on it in the end..but i'm glad i did keep going coz its so grundgy and funky...

"I'm Me"
so there you have it a little random.. which is spot on really... oh and guess what... i used a grand total of....
30 staples on that layout. i was proud of that... LOL....
i added ONE of my favourite sayings.. JUST GOTTA LAUGH.. coz seriously if you dont what is the point really....
yup some random punchings from my new Martha Stewart punch...and then the Chevron button and purple heart from Lil Red Rocket........
and not forgetting the ScrapMatts.. well a scrapmatt.. the cb 6037 Dress Form.. i got it in black when i ordered it so all i had to do was tie some twine around her..and of course staple her on.. LOL....

ANYHO.. i should now show my LITTLES..... 
a set of ATC's.. yep i hardly do these... so small...!!!
"Inspire, Dream, Love"
i used.... ATC 10-006 as the bases for all these cards..they are so tiny.. added some texture paste....and then went with the flow.. i knew i wanted to use these words..but again that was all.. so out came the most awesome box of ScrapMatts chippies..and off i went......
"Inspire"
 so i used...cb 6037 dress forms {yup the same as on the layout above}, cb 1078 Gears, cb 1134 assorted words AND i {OH my goodness you didnt} cut up a cb5096 Layered frame and used it on the three cards for a bit of continuity..... happy times...
"Dream"
 
again.. the same words and frame.. but added cb 1017 keys and cb1084 key holes.....
"Love"
again same as before.. same words and frame.. just added.... cb 1158 butterlies and mc 1028 bird cages....
so that is that set of cards.. and then i thought i'd have a play and create just a card.. not for anyone..but as a stand alone thing.. i might frame it.. yes FRAME it {alahhh Mr Maker...hehehe}
"An Angel"
so what you think.. frame it...........
for this one i used... cb 5038 Leaf Spray and cb 1158 butterflies......
and also some cb 1120 wings.. well an angel isnt an angel with out wings now is she... just covered the bottom wing layer with some glitter.. well three different colours of glitter actually..LOL and away i went.. i really really LOVE her... anyho.
that is it from me today.. Please Share some LOVE....... and also.. i will randomly draw a commenter and you will be lucky or unlucky whichever way you think about it to receive my set "Inspire, Dream, Love" atcs.......
Happy days....
