And So Say All of Us!

Well I hope your Christmas celebrations are all prepared and that you can spend time with family over the break. I also hope that you can sit back, relax and join in the new Mini Challenge at More Than Words! In keeping with our family theme, the word we want to see on your card, tag or ATC is 'Us'.

I made a card this month:

I thought the wording on this was appropriate as I made it for someone for his birthday with a git that was from a number of people.

The background on this is made with Tinby Designs Colour Crush, overlaid with stitiching and die-cuts. This style of wording is a great way to use up odds and ends of alphas.

I hope you can join in! You can find the mini challenge details here.

Make a Splash!

Oh gosh - I've been having such fun scrapping again!

I've made a layout for the new Scrapki-Wyzwaniowo challenge. The challenge is to use splashes on your page. I used a photo of my two nieces because they sure know how to make a splash!

I just adore pastel colours lately. The background is made with Heidi Swapp Color Shine with extra acrylic paint splashed over the top. I used bits and pices from all sorts of collections to create my embellishments.

Are you going to 'splash' out and join in the challenge? you can find it here.

Happy scrappin'!

It's all about Family at More Than Words

It's time for the new challenge over at More Than Words! Woohoo! The challenge this month is to be influenced by the word 'Family' and to use some Numbers on your layout, canvas or art journal page.

Here's what I made:

My layout is about the fact that our kids have grown up and left home and now, after being a family of four for so long, we are once again a family of two. Of course, our kids will always be a huge part of our lives but there are usually just two of us at home now - plus the dog! 

I hand cut the large title and added a bit of fussy cutting and stamping to the page. I actually made this one while I was travelling, using some papers that my lovely friend Valia gave me so I was pretty rapt to create this with such limited supplies.

I also added a tiny little number 2 in among the large title.

I sure hope you can join our challenge this month. You can find the details here.

Happy scrappin'!
