Sweetie Pie………….

Well, after a lot of distressing( which I love to do), I decided to do a bright and cheerful page. This is for a challenge at www.debscreations.net.au by Mandy

The challenge says:

1. 2 photos any size

2. Paint3. Metal

4. string/cotton- of any description

PLUSWhatever else you want to add…

I love Rosa Moka papers, bright colors with some splash of paint on them. Very cheerful papers.This time I just collected all bright items together and then pick the matching pieces and decided to make a layout with them. No sketch and no planning. But I made sure I had a metal piece and a string in them. Of course the paint as well.

Description of the layout:

1. I started with a white card stock. Placed my DD’s two photos at an angle using the foam dots, right in the centre of the cardstock.

2. I then place a black lace on the bottom of the photos

3. I used Basic Grey Urban Pairie chipboard sticker piece on the left side of the photo. On the rightside I used a Bella journalling tag again using foam dots. The journalling tag is wrapped around using a string and a metal heart clip hanging from the string.

4. I then trimmed the white cardstock to a smaller size. and rounded the corners. I used brown, green, yellow and pink water color on the bottom corners as borders and on the the right top corner as well.

5. The title is from Bella chipboard stickers and the journalling says”Its your beauty that captures my attention but its your personality that captures my heart.” I love this quote because it is so true with my DD.

6. The other elements such the butterflies and the flowers are from apack I bought from Kmart. They have nice bright color and glitter on them. The birdie is from Basic Grey Urban Pairie Chipboard stickers.The large pink flower is from Heidi Swapp and the velvet gathered green flower is from Maya Road.

7. I finally placed the trimmed white card stock on Rosa Moka Appel De La nature Grande Envolee pattern paper.I liked it bright, simple and cheerful all that is so true of my DD as well.

Here are couple of closeups

Tupperware Party

Yesterday, I had been to a tupperware party.

Saw the new catalogue and Goodness me!! they have gone back to that dirty yellow color again. Yuk!! I hate that color.

I liked them in nice and bright colors.
Easy to make my kids identify them and get it to me when I want it and simiarly for my husband too. Other than the primary colors my DS and DH are blind to rest of them. lol!!!!
Anyway, I did order a few boxes to store my dhals and rice in them. and a mystery gift as well! So now most of you know my order was above a certain price hehehhe!!
I love the spice set they have and cranberry color is awesome.I have them and I have ordered another set as gift when I go home to meet my parents and SIL.They will love it.

I did do a bit of scrapping yesterday. Had this handmade page swapp at http://www.debscreations.net.au/ and I completed my page for the swapp.
I cannot put it up now because my layout have to reach my swapp person and she has to see it first. Otherwise the element of surprise is lost you see!!!
Hopefully by next week I will put it up. And also my designing a kit for http://www.uproar2scrapmore.com.au/ will also be up.
All exciting news now. I have started my projects for http://www.scrapncraftwitht.com.au/ Shhhh!! I am not telling anymore for now.
