Today is a Magical Day

Hi everyone,
today I want to share a layout I created after a trip to the "Red Centre" of Australia with my girlfriend Michelle. For those that do not know what that is, Uluru, NT formally known as Ayers Rock.
 This is my friend and I sitting waiting for the plane to take off. For those that don't kn meow, I am not a good flyer so this was a huge leap of faith for me.
 This paper range is an older Kaisercraft one. I love using woodgrain for my backgrounds. I added some script stenciling to the background. The chipboard was all painted with white paint. 49&Market flowers were just perfect and the wire embellishments that are in the packet go just so well.
I used Kaisercraft little wooden frames and painted them with Nuvo metallic pastes and added some script wording tp match the stenciled background. Lace and gauze give a lovely softness to the background. 

thanks for taking the time

Well this year really is flying past.
We are into March already, WOW!!
I said at the beginning of the year I wanted to keep my little blog as current as possible and still work my scrapbook shop 6 days a week and so far so good.
Here is a layout that I really like as it was something a little different for me being that it is done with very soft colours. I always do stronger colours with lots of contrast but not with this one, I do hope you all like it.
 49&Market paper a little stenciling, teamed with Prima flowers, Dusty Attic Chipboard, lace, butterflies fussy cut and all finished with Prima Mica powders, LOVE IT !!!

Thanks for stopping by
till next time

Memory of You

Welcome to another post.
Today I want to share my latest class page I will be teaching at my Scrapbook Shop in beautiful Swansea, NSW

This photograph is of my mother-in-law in her younger years. Have you ever come across an old family photo that gives you heaps of questions? Well this one threw a few questions up, like who are the children? When and where was this taken? How old was she in this photo?
My mother-in-law passed along time ago and unfortunately these questions will never be answered. I think this is a perfect example of why many say journaling is so important. What do you think?
 Ive used an older Celebr8 range to create this multi layered shabby chic page. Teamed with doilies and the most gorgeous  flowers from 49andMarket
After fussy cutting out feathers, flowers and the bird from the papers, I arranged them to enhance the photograph.I decided to die cut a few skeleton leaves from Tim Holtz's Sizzix dies. This die is one of my all time favorite dies to use. 
Dusty Attic chipboard embossed with Rangers Mixed Media embossing powder in Bone and the title embossed in a copper embossing powder.

Thank you for taking the time to stop by
and check out my creation.

Till next time, have a great day
