Deuce Truce…..

Well, Aditi and Siddarth have been arguing for a while
and I had to intervene as I started getting a headache..
I told them I will let them play Tennis on Wii if they stop arguing.
And it worked. They both played beautifully well without anymore argument.
They were giggling over the number of deuces, who got an advantage and who nulled it again… Never knew duece will bring some truce.
Ta… Da…“light bulb glow”
I captured some of the deuce moments
and here is the layout I made using those photos
Nat’s January 09 challenge in her forum.

The challenge rules are
PINK & GREEN – as the main color theme
INKS – distressing and or stamping, just have fun with some inks
and A QUIRKY TITLE – the title must be catchy, quirky or bizarre….

I have used a cordination black cardstock as the base.
The green paper is Basic Grey Urban Prairie Hayloft paper.
I have also used basic Grey Urban Prairie Monarch and Basic Grey Two Scoops, Strawberry Smoothie papers all inked on their edges using Versa mark Black Ink.
I have also used my latest purchase stitches stamps on the edges.
A bit here and there, but hey!! there is nothing right or wrong in scrapbooking…

I have used two pink Queen and co felt flowers, grungeboard hinge inked in Bella blue ink and pompom ribbons. I had this zigzag leftover piece from a black card stock which I have used on the bottom of the photos and used a Slick white Kindy Glitz to add texture and extra dimension. Couple of bees from Basic Grey Urban PrairieChipboard Shapes for added interest.

This is once again one of my bright and cheerful page after a few distressed muted tone pages.


Postie delivered three parcels today.

Some color and some Black and White– Photos from Esperance…

Wanted to share some photos I took yesterday at Esperance.
A small seaside town 400kms south of Kal.
This town is our escape from heat. Awesome place to escape, white sandy beaches,
lovely drive, good food and no cleaning or cooking.

Basic Grey Chipboard Challenge and Photo Swapp at TBSS

This week the challenge at Basic Grey Challenge Blog is to use chipboard.
Here is my take on the challenge. “Best Friends Card”
I have used Basic Grey Ambrosia Chipboard Shapes on the card.
The pattern paper is from Carolee’s Creations.
Rub ons from Trimmings and Kaiser craft, flowers from scrapbook blossoms,
ribbon from my stash, base is black card stock.


TBSS had a photo swap. My swap was with Kath Parker.
Here is my take.
I really like the photo of her kids standing together and a wonderful background.
Siblings are lifetime buddies. Thats how the title came about.
I have used Bella scalloped card stock as the background paper,
with WRMK, Wipe Out and Cloud 9 pps for layers.
They are all distressed using Heidi Swapp Distressor but not inked.
I wanted the white to stand out against the purple background.
Flowers are from Green tara and Bella chipboard.
Journalling tag is also from Bella, diecuts and the doiley from stash
and alphas from Pink Paislee.

I am off to a seaside town for a few days to escape heat.
Will catch you all later next week.

Have a nice week
