Your smile brightens my day

I have had the last 2 days off work so I could attend different activities my daughter has had on for school. Yesterday for Zone athletics and today for a band concert tonight, with rehearsals this morning. So I took advantage of some spare time at lunch today to do this page. This pic was taken on Mothers Day 2009 at Windsor. The kids love to go there and play in the Autumn leaves. I was very excited that this page took me just under 1 hour to complete!! Gotta love that.

Items used: pp - kaisercraft, paper loft, hat pin, doily, book paper, lace, staples, 3 bugs in a rug sticker, kaiser rhinestone flower, scrap fx chipboard, rhinestones, kaisercraft rubons, swiss dots cardstock.

more card making

Forgot to add this to the last post. I have been making quite a few cards to sell at work. I loved this paper range from Allison Ellis and it made making the cards so simple. I added some extra striped paper from my scraps to change from girly looking to boy friendly.

new things

I have been really enjoying my scrapbooking lately, and I am finally getting through my mountain of 'to scrap' photos. Have 2 to share today. This 1st one is the cabin we stayed at for our 10th Wedding anniversary and its the 1st time I have played around with using a real doily on the page. I picked up this doily from the Salvos store for 50 cents!! Bargain! And i love the effect it gives to this page.
Items used: pp - stampin up, cosmo cricket tiny types, vinyl thickers, craftworks chipboard, doily, paper inklings rub on, enthaily flowers and leaves, kaiser, Gt and bella flowers, pearls, staples, brads, prima flower centre, date stamp.

This one I also love. Came together nicely. Journalling is about our WET visit to Culburra Beach where I made everyone get out in the rain and wind for this photo.
I am thinking of entering this in the sketch challenge for SFS again - I loved the sketch so much, this is just altered and flipped.
items used: pp - stampin up, cosmo cricket, bazzill scallop cardstock, li'l davis chipboard, foam tape, ink, gemstone, craftworks chipboard.

Quilled cards

I have been making some quilled cards the last few weeks (but they are quite time consuming). Last year I started making some and taught myself, and then I sold them at work. I got a good response from the cards I made, so I am making ALOT more, all styles, to try and sell again just before Xmas. I quite like these ones.
The stamps on these are from Stampin' Up.
