Lil’ Miss Moody………………

Well, this photo was taken 4 years ago when we moved to Hobart.
Aditi was only 3+ and was not very happy with the move.
Moreover, we had to leave for India immediately to attend my BIL’s wedding.
When we came back, she had to go to daycare as I started working.
Not one but two different daycare.
She fell ill with a bad gastro and lost weight.
Weather was not comfortable either.It was very cold and windy in Hobart.
She did not adjust a bit that year. Was grumpy and moody all the time.
I can’t blame her. Poor little girl, its a huge stress for her at that age.
Neither did my son and myself…
None of the photo taken that year had her smiling. This photo is one of them.
I had to record it because it was an important part of her childhood.
So here I go I made a layout…hehhe!!!

I have used Prima Papers, Prima Say it in crystals and Prima Center flower bling for this layout. The papers are from The cavalier line and Tea and Silk collection.
I have distressed the large paper from the Cavalier line using Heidi Swapp edge distressor
but sanded and inked all other pieces of paper using Versa color black ink.
The diecuts, bloosms,black cardstock,the leaves and doily are from my stash.
Alpha is from Basic Grey Granola alpha stickers.

The sketch I used for this layout is from Jan 09 Build a Page sketch from Prima.
I have also doubled this layout for Deb’s Challenge #2,
where the rules are multilayering papers, bling and unusual title.
In my unusual tile I have used two plastic eyes instead of “Os” in the word “Moody”

Couple of closeups for you:

Joyous……

Another Basic Grey layout. I loove Ambrosia papers.
What colors? Bright colors with a unique design is superb.
I have so far managed to use every bit of scrap paper I have left of the Ambrosia range.
Lol!! No wasting papers.
Anyway, this layout I made using a sketch from Stucksketches blog.
Sara has lovely sketches everyweek.

I have used BG Ambrosia Clementine Paper as the base
and used Ebony, Marmalade and Tangy pieces as layers.
I have sanded the photo edges to make it stand out.
BG chipboard shapes are fantastic embellishments. I like them.
Here I have used the shapes stickers from Ambrosia range to coordinate with the papers.
Title Alphas are from Granola range. I love the cursive alphas and a nice size for the title too. The corner rubons and the pearls are from Kaisercraft.
Just to give a border, I have drawn straight lines using black crayon pencil.

I like the simplicity of the layout. Don’t you think so?
The title and the photo says it all.
Here are some closeups.

“Friends” ATC cards…..

These are the ATC card set I have made for the first ATC swap I have organized at Debs.
My theme is friends.
I have used Basic Grey Scarlett and Stella Ruby papers.
I have also stamped and embossed a corner stamp and made like a pocket,
into which, a torn piece of paper, a piece of doily
and a tiny photo of two Victorian women symbolising as friends are tucked.
I have also added a flower and a red Kaiser Pearl in the center.
All the pieces of papers are distressed using
Tim Holtz’s distress ink- Brushed Corduroy, Spiced Marmalade and Shabby Shutters.
I used the computer to print the title, cut it out
and distressed the edges using the distress ink.

Here are some closeups.
