Scrap The Boys July Challenge

Hi There!

I have had this page done for a couple of weeks but completely forgot to upload my entry for the July Challenge at Scrap The Boys! Lucky I remembered with a whole 2 hours to spare!

The theme for July was School pics. I have used Hunters school photo from this year which is his Grade One pic. He looks so grown up & handsome! I'm sorry the photo quality is not the best. Because I forgot to take a pic earlier I have had to use the flash at night.

I have used some of my stash & played with some old Kaisercraft papers Class of 86?? I think that is what it was called! There is some scraps of old Sassafrass Lass  & an October Afternoon Bingo card

I had a bit of a play with a couple of different crafters workshop templates some texture paste & Mr Hueys mists

There is still time to enter my giveaway if you haven't already. I will draw a winner on August 6th. Details are here

I will be back tomorrow with some sneaks for the August Main Kit at My Creative Scrapbook!

Thanks for looking!

This is the sketch

& my page
This is me & my 3 besties Brooke, Tan & Tez. Tan, Tez & I became best friends at the start of highschool. I met Brooke about 10 years ago when I started working in Real Estate. The 4 of us are really close. We have been each others bridesmaids & are Godmother to each others kids.
We have had soooooo many laughs & fun together but  have also been there through the tough times of relationship break downs, the death of a parent & miscarriages. I LUV that I can tell these 3 girls anything. They don't judge & they are always ready to lend a helping hand. I feel so blessed to have them in my life!!
I have used Graphic 45 A Ladies Diary. The colours of this collection are gorgeous & I luv the vintage pics that G45 do so well!

I journalled on a kraft tag & tucked this behind the lace

To give my page a real vintage feel I did some stamping then applied some Crackle Paint over the top. I also stamped on some masking tape.

I had a great time out on Saturday night at the ball. I danced all night & have blisters on both feet now! I don't think I have any photos to show though sorry. we pulled out the camera towards the end of the night when we were looking rather less polished LOL!

My Creative Scrapbook July Reveal Part 2 & a chance to win

Hi There!

I'm back with the Main Kit from My Creative Scrapbook today but before I show you my pages & card I wanted to share with you a chance to win some new Carta Bella products!!!!
Head on over to the My Creative Scrapbook blog for details on how to win this

These papers are the brand new releases for Carta Bella & there are 5 packs to be won!

This is the Main kit

So here are a few pages I created using the Main kit which features Carta Bella Beautiful Moments, Prima flowers & trinkets, a chipboard frame & HEAPS more!

I have used 2 of my new Martha Stewart punches on this one & layered lots of fussy cut pieces. The kit also has some Carta Bella stickers & alphas
This is Kayla with her friend Quinn. I luv this pic of the girls!

The colours in this kit are Beige, Black, Red & Pink so you can get lots of different looks out of the 1 kit! The large paper doily in the kit is so pretty!

This is Hunter holding little Ryder. Ryder is 4 months old already! I used Candy Apple Red glimmermist & a Prima mask on the background. There will be a little tutorial during the month on how I altered the chipboard frame

Lastly I created a unisex card for my card stash! I used some Kraft cardboard as the base & created a the template by using one of the Prima packages that was in the kit. I simply folded the cardstock in half & traced the template onto it & cut it out. The lace & bling are also part of the kit!

& because I still get super excited whenever I am featured I have to share that my  Birthday Girls page I showed a couple of posts back was featured on the Websters Ning site!

One more thing. My incredibly sweet friend Nelle has just started a blog. Pop on over & say Hi to her here!

I hope you all have a great weekend!

Thanks for looking!

My Creative Scrapbook July Reveal Part 1

Hi There!

So it's 4 days into school holidays in Victoria at the moment. How are all the Vic Mum's going?? I am definately enjoying not having to run around like a nut case in the morning but I am starting to lose a little patience at the kids already. If they ask me one more time can they have something to eat I think I will scream!! Seriously I think I should worm them, they just don't stop eating all day! We haven't done much this week but next week we will head to Mt Baw Baw for a day & have a few play dates. hopefully that keeps the hungry little hippos at bay!

Anyway it is reveal day at My Creative Scrapbook YAY! Today I will show you my projects I created using the Album Kit. It was filled with Websters Pages 'In Love' so it was a perfect chance to scrap MORE wedding pics!

The embellies in this kit are awesome. I absolutely LOVED the Prima trinkets. There was also a gorgeous scroll chippie & some Teresa Collins Blingage glitter which was lots of fun to play with! Throughout the month I will have a tutuorial using the Teresa Collins Blingage glitter

I luv this pic of me & my SIL Amanda. She is like the Sister I never had! I am really so lucky that my Brother married such a great girl (he is SUPER lucky to have her LOL!)

This gorgeous Red car is Amanda's Dad's car that he lovingly restored. He had 2 friends in his car club with the same cars (different colours) take us girls to the wedding ceremony.
I have used some Prima packaging on this page. To alter the chippie I just painted it black & added some modge podge once the paint dried. While the modge podge was still wet I sprinkled the gine glitter all over the chippie

I will back soon to share the Main kit with you!

Thanks for looking!
