Layout of Mikayla

Hi, hope everyone had a fab weekend.

I am sharing 2 layouts that I have done of our new bundle of joy, Mikayla.

The first is for Scrap the girls where you need to do a layout with the work 'love' in the title and some distressing. My title is I will love you forever and I distress around the photo (like I always do) and around paper and some embellishments
This is the first time I am entering in the 'Scrap the girls' challenge.

The background paper is from prima, the strip paper is Webster, the card and other paper is from kasiercraft. The clock is also from kasiercraft paper. The 'forever' butterfly, love heart and words around clock are from Webster pages, Flowers are Prima , so is the ink I used and other letter in title from October Afternoon. the punch I used is from Stampin'up

This layout I used Stampin' up cardstock, Webster pages paper (also used them for handmade flower) and stickers, Glimmer Mist, Prima flower and ink, Tara Green Flower. A2Z Chipboard, Kasiercraft paint and rhinestone, cuttlebug

Am really happy with both layouts

Thanks for looking

Scrapbooking In Geraldton and DT pack from Scrapbooking Haven

First of all I want to do A BIIIIGGGGG shot out to Scrapbooking In Geraldton. They have been opened for one yr as a shop (5yrs as a Internet shop) and it is the BEST shop to visit. With 3 young kids, shopping is not a fun thing....unless you shop at Scrapbooking In Geradlton. It is VERY kid friendly and has nice chairs for feeding babies. The shelves are nice and wide apart for prams and strollers, 2 toilets and Marike (owner) is fab at helping you find what you need. She is also up todate with all that's new in the scrapbooking world, hold classes most weekends and some in the week. So if you live in Geraldton, or visiting the area, it is a MUST you go to 1/125 Flores Rd Geraldton (in between all the male shops so you don't have any men looking at their watches lol) or head to shop website for some great shopping :)

Ok for some pics of my fab page and OTP that I have done using the fab Kasiercraft Miss Nelly from Scrapbooking Haven. I am so very lucky to be part of their DT and Amy does give us wonderful packs to work with.

This is an easy OTP to do and great if you have never done one before. I traced the shape I wanted covered with paper, cut it out, distress the edges then inked them. I painted the parts that was not covered with paper, I did about 4 layers of paint to give good coverage. Then I stuck everything together, put rhinestones for eyes and used Miss Nelly stickers for the name. Last i used Glitter ribbon around the base.  Just love the finished look

For some reason i thought that lace was straight.....will measure for now on lol Again the paper, flowers and the dark blue letters are from the Miss Nelly collection. The chipboard, Gingham frill (around flower) are from scrapbooking haven. This will have to be one of my all time fav layouts ever!!! The sketch I got from another DT member, Marisa Page. I have done it now 3 times. The roses were from the rub-on pack that I rub-on paper, cut out and layered.

For all the products head HERE.

Well my kids are now crying so I better go
