Postcards from France.......

well from scrapboutique anyway! Its week two and the stop over is the south of France in the post cards from around the world competetion. Its such a romantic, shabby chic inspired challenge this week so here is my entry, but I warn you the photo is terrible as its overcast and raining today.Hopefully will get a better picture later.Used lots of Prima again!Mod podged some old bookpapers onto my background and cut the letters from different books to use as a quote which was a requirement of this weeks LO.My quote is "Happiness is not perfected until shared". I love these photos of Maya and Gemma.

And here are some more LOs using one of the new doodlebug range which I have done for the Imagination factory. They asked me to stay on and do some more design work for them so very happily I accepted!!!!

These papers were great fun to work with and had great embellishment stickers and alphas to go with them. i have one more LO planned with these as well so will share when I finish.
And lastly, I thought I would share with you two classes that I am teaching at the LSS here "BLISS". The first is a layout using Bella Blvd (ofcourse!!)

And thisone is a 12x12 canvas that I will be teaching at her retreat in July. So after all of that (sigh) I will say goodbye and thanks for popping by!

Four new ones........

Just thought I would pop in and share some layouts I created yesterday at the crop for a cause that I attended in Geelong.

The first is called Happy Feet.I used some bright Lily Bee Design papers and some trims by sweet vintage (jodie Butler).

The second layout cracks me up because as I was taking photos of Will last week he looked at me,turned to the side and posed and said,"get my good side" We both just cracked up laughing when he said it so this LO makes me smile when I look at.Its called "get my good side!"I used some new Bssic Grey basic line. Loving it!

The next is just of some fun photos I took last week of Will and Maya.I called it sweet as there is nothing sweeter than watching them play and laugh together.I used the new Fly a kite range by October Afternoon.

The last one is another photo of Will and Maya. I just loved this photo as I took it while they were chatting and laughing with one "close" another. So I called it close as I think this photo depicts how close they really are. I used Thrift shop by October Afternoon...yum!

I have also just started a challenge over at Scrap Boutique called postcards fromaround the world. Each week we receive a postcard from a new desination including descriptions and images and we have to draw fromthemfor our inspiration to create a LO. This week was Italy. I drew my inspiartion from beautiful rich colors like reds, golds and greens, and also beautiful swirls in a painted mask. Here is my LO. I have used Scribble scrabble papers and lots of Prima...could you guess?!!

I adore this photo of Will and Maya walking hand in hand up the path at the gardens.

And finally you may already know but sadly I didn't make it onto Kim Archers Support Team but she is using the projects from the top 15 in a "mum's the word" class on her site. So if you want some great mothers day gift ideas head over to Kim's site and sign up. It will be filled to the brim with inspiration for all of May.

Anyway, thanks for popping by, Eb xx
