This is a photo from my childhood! I've scrapping heaps of pics from 70's-80's latelty! This is me in my mum's arms at K-mart in the 1980's. The store was show casing polaird cameras at the time! OMG, lol! How I would love one now! lol! It would be so cool to do a mini album all in polarid photos, so funky and cool I think! (I might just do that). Anyway I really love how this layout turned out! It's another layout from my Studio Calico kit (with a few bits and pieces thrown in for good measure). The scrabble titles are real ;) I put the giraffe in there cos my mum gave me a toy one when I was a baby (and I lost it). Since that time I always relate the giraffe to her and me like a 'mummy and daughter' connection type thing;)
On this layout I only used 1 piece of paper called 'Super Stack' by Sassafras! (On one side it has coloured diamonds and the other side it has some monsters stacked on top of each other). With the coloured diamonds I was able to create two layouts alone, I really love paper like this ;)
Fun, Fun, Fun!!! I have more creations to come!!!
December Studio Calico:
Studio Calico's kit goes live in a few hours for members! I can't wait to see the Decmember kit in all it's glory!!! I'll get in around x-mas day so it will be my x-mas present under the tree for myself. The kits are always a wonderful suprise as u don't pick the stuff and each kit is placed in a brown paper bag with a sticker. Then placed in a box! Ohhhh I can't wait!!!!
I'm still working with Market Place and 4 add-0n's plus soooo many extra emblishments! I was in scrappy heaven when I got it last week! My whole dinning table (6 seats) was covered in new papers (50), emblishments, cardstock, new paints, mists, new Tim Holtx inks and so much more. Omg heaven, heaven, heaven!! I have done 3.5 layouts so far and all very different from each other! One of the kits (called bazzar) had wood in it so I used that, omg, so weird but I love working with different things! So mush fun to see what u can come up with!!
Cards and goals:
Is such a super busy, super stressful time of year! I have finished my x-mas cards, they are just very boring angel cards! I'm really not into putting a lot of 'time' into cards. I've never really been a 'card maker'. I'd much rather hand make a simple one then buy one, so I'm glad I've made them now! Right now I've put some of my x-mas decorations up. Owen is having a sleep over at pop's house so Caleb, Niall and I will put up the tree tommorrow. I also wanna thread popcorn to wrap around the tree (I did that as a kid with coloured popcorn) and make ginger bread men to hang on the tree! So that's my first x-mas goal I want to complete!
A Child in need:
My second goal is this: Every year I pick a child in need and make them up a present! This year I have a 6 year old girl called Jasmine. Her parents don't have much and have been going thru hell this past year! So I have chosen her as my special child!!! I brought an awesome wooden vintage craddle and have painted it candy pink!!! OMG it looks awesome! Next I'm going to paint a layer of red pearl paint (see thru paint) and then I may give a little mist! I have these awesome AC aqua glitter letters that I'm going to use to write her name on the top headboard of the craddle!! That way it's personal!!! I then going to put a little pillow in the cradle with a blanket!! I'm not sure if I'm going to put a baby doll or bear in the craddle yet! I saw these beautiful bears that have heaps of awesome outfits to go with it! If I get her the bear I'll pick a girl bear and buy her two outfits, being a pink a dress with awesome little shoes and the other a pair of pj's with slippers so she can put the bear to sleep in the craddle!!! If I get her a baby doll, I'll make her up a nappy bag, with little nappies, wipes, a baby wrap, a pair of pj's, a little rattle, bottle, bowl spoon and bib.
Which one sounds better>?????
