Video for Scrap Around the World

Hello Scrappy friends.
Earlier this month I shared this layout for the current Challenge at Scrap Around the World.

Today I'm back to share the video I filmed while I was creating this page.

I've really enjoyed looking at all the entries roll in for this challenge for which I created the mood board below.   So many fabulous bright colourful pages it's been a delight to look at them all.
There's still time to create a page in our challenge with some fabulous prizes available.
All the details can be found on the SATW blog here

Metallic Gelatos

First Set of Gelatos I ever bought were the metallic ones.
They're still my favourite I think and that first set is still going almost two years later.
Here's a page a did a while ago using various techniques with the Metallic Gelatos.

Sorry for the lack of text just about to head out the door to work.
Have a great weekend. :)
Hi Ho!

Gelatos - yes Gelatos again!

Hi, I can't believe there are still layouts I haven't shared that I made last month.
I'll never catch up!!

Here's a page of Me and my eldest gorgeous boy. 
Snapped a picture before he went off on his last primary school camp.  
There are lots of lasts for him and I this year, as he heads to secondary school next year!!
I just found out that I have to write him a letter and read it to him at his graduation evening later this year.  I have no problem writing a letter but reading it aloud to him?
 I wont make it past the first sentence before the tears start!! LOL

So I was playing around with Gelatos -yes again- on this page. 
What can I say I really love using them. 
I picked out the colours in his snapback (apparently its not a cap or hat its a snapback!) 
I stand corrected.

Scrapbooking Memories Blog Hop

 Hello Scrappy Friends.

Welcome to the Scrapbooking Memories Blog Hop!
You may have arrived here from the Scrapbooking Memories blog.

Some of the Scrapbooking Memories Masters and Creative Team Members are joining together for a fun little blog hop.  
We were each asked to design a project around a particular theme.
What we'd like you to do is guess that theme from the clues left on each blog.
When you think you have the answer please head over to the Scrapbooking Memories blog 
and add your answer in the comments section of the Blog Hop post.
NB: this last bit is most important so all the answers are in the one place.


So here's the project I created.
And let me tell you it was a whole lot of fun!

I wanted the page to reflect the carefree, lighthearted photo's.  I have such good times
camping each year with these girls and we were definitely 
'In Good Spirits' 
the day these pictures were taken. 

I used Design Memory Craft Paper Crafter Crayons to create this background. 
I melted them on to the cardstock using an iron.
Because of their waxy consistency when I blended Gelatos into the the cardstock the colour resisted the waxy circles.  
Cool hey?!

I kept the embellishments to a minimum, but honestly these Amy Tangerine rosettes and stickers
are enough to put anyone in a chirpy mood. ;)

So what do you think any clues as to what the theme may be or is it too early to tell?
Why don't you hop over to Heather McMahon's blog and see what clues she may have. ;)
Heather's post will be up at 12.30pm.

Just a last little note and not really part of the blog hop but I have an unclaimed prize 
from a giveaway in September. So if you leave a comment here (remember no guessing about the blog hop here, you can do that on the Scrapbooking Memories blog) I'll pop you in the draw to see if 
we can't give away this RAK.  I'll be back in a few days with the winner. :)

Sharing my first Design Memory Craft project.

I know some of you may have seen this but I wanted to share the first project I made for the Guest Design Team at Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft.  It went up on their blog a couple of months ago

I used Aquarelle watercolour pencils and Gesso to create the background on my page.

You can actually watch how I made the page here.

Thanks so much for stopping by and thank you for your comments they really do brighten my day.
