Using WOW chipboard

Here is another page I created at my last scrappy night. While creating it I remembered that WOW were wanting to see pages using their chipboard, so I added the title. I left it raw and just added some gloss to it.
I really like how the page came out. I've used some older Stampin' Up! papers and even made a handmade paper flower with some of it too.
I have also stuck to my deal of trying to use items that I've had in my stash for over a year - the papers and kaisercraft bling butterfly. (I love trying to use my stash up, that way I know it wasnt a waste of money!!)

oooh, aaah, pretty!

Scrappy night last night saw me create yet another double page. And its pink!!! (I hate pink with a passion!!). But, pink really needed to be used and this page (I think) turned out awesome!!
Basic grey papers, prima flowers and some bling really make this page what it is!
(back soon with some of the other pages I finished)

W.W.1 - July challenge

Here is my entry for this months White With 1 challenge.
Mine is titled: Last night being 5 (but the word 'being' is a bit faint in the photo)

This month required you to use: white + aqua/teal + chipboard.

I have used some chipboard stars and have painted over some star lace paper for the background.

This photo (as the title states) was taken the night before Aiden turned 6. Such a cute little photo snuggled up with his little bulldog.

great friends

I havent been scrapping on Friday nights for about 3 weeks now and I am really missing it. We missed last week due to school holidays and we all took the kids to the zoo (very long day). So today I am sharing a page a finished about a month ago of some great friends of mine. These are the people I scrap with (well 3 of them are pictured here)and have become very close friends with.

I Met these ladies through my daughters school (our kids all started school together and are still friends today). This photo was taken on our first girls weekend away last year to The Entrance (we have just booked this years one too). This is the Penthouse we are renting!!

I can rely on these ladies and they are always there if I need them. Plus, they are always a good laugh!!
(I love that this page came together in under an hour too!!)
So till next week (our Friday night scrapping)...
