Hi I am back today to show my first ever OTP item that was published in Scrapbooking Memories. It is the word JOY with pics of my girls. When I created this I wanted something for Christmas and something that I could change photos so it did not have dated photos on it. This is what I came up with:

I will show you a letter then a close up. For each letter I gessoed, painted red and then added crackle paint. With my fingers I added the bits of white in the cracks. I also lightly stamped in some areas with a Kaisercraft stamp.The vine is a Cheery Lynn die and flowers are Prima and Scrapbooking In Geraldton.

Each letter a A2Z Scraplets. They were inked and embossed silver.

The photos are thumb tacked on the letters so I can change the photo as they get older. I distressed each photo and then matted them.

I added charms from Handmade Halo (now closed) and beads from Scrapbooking In Geraldton

The tiny ladybugs and butterflies are filmo.

So that is it. I had a ball making these and they looked awesome up this Christmas. The letters can be found in spotlight and come in the whole alphabet.

Thanks for looking

Best Friends Forever

Hi, Hope you all had an awesome Christmas and New Year. This is my first post of the yr as I took some time away with family. But I am back to show you a layout that I did for Scrapbooking Creations Diva comp that they had at the beginning of last yr. I could not show this layout as it was chosen to be published!!! I ended up with with 2 layouts in that issues, my first and 2nd being published in that mag MADE MY YEAR!!!

This is a pic on my oldest girl first day of Pre Primary. It also has my middle daughter in it. My youngest was just a tiny baby. I just loved this photo and wanted to keep the focus on it.

For the background I randomly put washi tape on cardstock then lightly painted over it with white paint. Then I mixed some texture paste with paint and painted that over a stencil.

The A2Z Scraplets was gessoed and lightly painted. I then glued the pearl trim through the word friends. TIP: Use a glue with a nice sharp point, unlike me who did not and it all ended up a nightmare lol. I then added some embellishments and layout done. The background took the most time.

Well that's it from me. I am thinking its nearly time for a give away so watch this space. Also A2Z Scraplets is under new ownership, so check an eye on their facebook page (HERE) When they get to 1000 likers there will be a giveaway!!!

Thanks for looking
