Like to share these………..

This layout, I made using Pink Paislee sweet Cakes and Tinsel Town collection papers.

Flowers and leaves from Prima. Chipboard from A-Z scraplets, journaling tag from Bella.

I made this layout for A-Z scraplet sketch challenge.

Wanted to scrap my son’s love for Subway sandwiches!! lol!!


I kept seeing blogs after blogs with beautiful and stunning cards.

They had similar stamped images on them.

Got a bit curious!!! and found out they are Magnolia stamps…

Just beautiful when they are painted.

I went looking where I can buy these stamps in Australia and bought a couple of them.

This is my first attempt using Tilda stamps and painting the image.

I love the stamps. So adorable and I will definitely want more……

Crazy for !!!!!!

Sketch 71# from stucksketches is an awesome sketch.
Love the layers in the sketch. Perfect for a boy’s layout.
I have this Cosmo Cricket papers in my stash for sometime now.
Wanted to scrap it and this sketch will be perfect for the dark distressed papers.
They will give so much depth to the layout.

Here is my take on the sketch.

I have used Cosmo Cricket Fleuriste Maize paper as the base.
I loved the texture effect it has along with the distresed edges.
The papers I have used for the layers are also from Cosmo Cricket–Primrose and Cobblestone, and from American Traditional Designs– Coffee Botanical paper.
All these papers are distressed on the edges and inked using Black versa Color ink.
All chipboard embellishments are from A-Z scraplets.
All inked with Tim Holtz’s distress inks.
I have also used a Indian Jones movie ticket and a Stawars logo as embellishments.
Dymo for journalling and American Craft Thickers for the title.

Here is a closeup of the chipboard embellishments.

I have recieved my DT pack from Deb and can’t wait to start on it.
OOOooo!! it will be my weekend project. Excited and thrilled!!!!

This is so funny, Deb was asking me this morning whether I received the pack and I was telling her that I am still stalking my postie!!! He is sure to take things differently as I am constantly looking out of the window and have a big sheepish grin when he brings the parcels!!
Everything was similar today except that the postie was a female!!!
I could not stop giggling!! She would have thought whats wrong with this girl!!!
lol! lol!lol!
Have a great weekend

Black and White photo….

I took this photo from inside the car while my DH was driving.
These are few scattered clouds.
I converted the photo into black and white and played a bit with the shadow and brightness.
I love the effect. I like to play with the photoshop software a bit.
I like the outcome but it is too time consuming for me.
I will limit with just editing the photos.

No layouts today. Was not a good day for me.
Dehydrated and fatigued due to heat. Hope tomorrow is a better day.
Off to bed. Goodnight everybody
