Looking back on 2012

WOW its the last day of the year!!!! And I will say it again, where has the time gone??? Its been a great year for me and our family. We brought our farm, I got published in Scrapbooking Memories, had 2 more layouts accepted for 2 different mags, become a DT for Scrap Everything and A2Z Scraplets, Youngest girl turned 1, Oldest girl finished Pre Primary and Middle girl starts Kindy next yr. All in all one GREAT yr.

I have notice a few blogs doing the top 12 layouts of the yr so I have decided why not join on the bang wagon

Scraped at the very beginning of the year for a challenge (not sure for who now) but it was white with one other colour. As the flowers had green and the brads had silver I decided not to enter. But I just loved how the ladybug turned out, a chipboard painted with brads as the dots. And I love this photo :)

This was not scrapped this yr but was my very first EVER published layout. My girls just love puddles :)

My middle girl just before she had a hair cut and the 'why of why must you play in dirt AFTER a shower???'

My first layout after I had found Handmade Halo. The pink flower, the blur lace, bottle cay and tea bag all came from her. I have since brought at least half the shop since then

Have been dying to scrap this photo for years. My first time using Texture Paste.

Another Muddle layout. 2nd time of using texture paste, used lots of Handmade Halo and Purple Pumpkin. Put this layout up on Purple Pumpkin Facebook page and won the monthly prize of the layouts put up on the facebook page.

I did this for the sketch challenge for Charms Creation and won!!!! YAY me. Another very fab place to get handmade embellishments :)

Did this for, I think, Scrap the girls challenge. Just love this one. Took only a day to do, which in my world just does not happen with 3 girls. All the flowers, charms are from Handmade Halo

My new baby with her Scottish Grandma. Love these photos. A mix of Charms and Halo, was really getting into all the handmade stuff

One of the 2 layouts I have ever done of me. And I used a shopping bad for the background

My very first layout for Scrap Everything.

And last but not least my first layout for A2Z Scraplets

If you have made it to the end o this post WELL DONE, thanks for looking and being part of my blog for 2012 and look forward to seeing you in the new year and for the GIVEAWAY I am having starting sometime in January. It will have Handmade Halo, Charms Creations, A2Z Scrplets and MORE..........

Thanks again

Merry Christmas and a few layouts

Merry Christmas everyone, I hope all of you had a fab day with family and friends. Its boxing day here in OZ and I so can not believe that I have not posted since the 4th!!!!! It has been such a busy time that it just did not happen. Oh well I have a few layouts to share with you from Scrap Everything.

The first is a photo of my 3 girls taken when the youngest was just 2 weeks old. I have used the Special paper from Kaisercraft new range, Serect Admirer.

As this paper is just stunning as is I added only a few embellishments. The Prima flowers that you can get from Scrap Everything is just so pretty!!! Topped off with a A2Z butterfly with Flourish With A Bling pearls on it.

Add a few more Prima flowers (all from the same packet) with a STUNNING Manor flower, more Flourish With A Bling and the words are from the sticker sheet from the Serect Admirer range

The title is an A2Z Scraplet

Have you every wondered what to do with ALL those die cuts that you get in a collection???? You use one or 2 then left with the rest. I was wanting to use lots and after a lot of play decided to use the dollies from the die collection from the new Kaisercraft range Secret Admirer as the photo matt instead of paper.

I inked around the edges to try and tie all the dollies together

Another stunning Manor flower with a Purple Pumpkin flower and a Charm Creation flower

The words again from the Secret Admirer sticker sheet

And a A2Z Scraplet title, love this one!!!!!

And another Charm Creation

Well that's it from me, hope its will not be tooo hot you you today (44 degrees here)

Thanks for looking

2 layouts for Scrap Everything

So as I go on my blog I relies that I have not blogged for over a week!!! Ooooops. Between harvest, rain and finishing 2nd daughters cross stitch stocking time has flown past.

I have 2 layouts to show you from my DT at Scrap Everything. I just loved what I got from her and of course her Internet shop is just filled with goodies that I MUST have lol

First is of my Mother-in-law holding our 2nd daughter on her naming day

This is the Kasiercraft Pickle Pear range. And a stunning range. Loved working with it :)

The dies that came with the 6x6 pad made clustering so very easy. Also used one as a title. The butterflies are rub-ons from the range as well. The pearls around the clock are from a Pearl pen. I loved using it so much I have gone back to Scrap Everything and brought more!!!

This metal butterfly I painted with gesso, painted with kaisercraft paint and used the Pearl pen.

More rub-on butterflies, die cuts and Pearl Pen

The next layout is of my sisters girls

This layout came about from the 6x6 paper pad from the pear range. We all have them but don't really use them past cards. So using an Hexagon Die I cut one out of each of the different paper from the pad, sewed around them before sticking them down on the card.

Love all the die cuts that came with the pad. Very good for layering. Also love the Manor flowers that Scrap Everything sells, has that WOW factor thats for sure

Also used Flourish With A Bling, metal butterfly painted with gesso and kaisercraft paint. The cute little owl charm is from Handmade Halo. And of cause the title, a very beautiful one from A2Z

And another charm from Halo.

Well thats it from me for now. Head HERE for Scrap Everything Shop and check out all the goodies, be quick otherwise it will all be coming to me :)

Thanks for looking
Belinda :)
