Ok I finally made it back to share somemore layouts with you. I am having SO many issues with my computer at the "moment it really is doing my head in. It freezes ALL the time when I get to my dashboard. So while I am on to moderate the beautiful comments you all have been leaving(THANKS SO MUCH!) I thought I should add some layouts.I am also waiting to play "easter bunny" and waiting for my next "She art" tute video to load!!
So I have used HEAPS of Crate......
                              These ones are using the gorgeous "Emma's Shoppe" range......
This little cutie is my niece Lila and I couldnt resist taking a few pics of her a couple of weeks ago! Love that smile!!!!
These ones are using the "toybox" range!  LOVE this range especially the phrase and border stickers!!!
This layout I loved creating......lots of paint and mess!!!! This is a layout of Maya creating....a favourite pass time of hers!!! (have no idea where she gets that from!!!????)
I have used some Echo park "Playground"...and a bit of everything really!!! LOL!

The above layout was the first I did for the weekend and I had challenged myself to use some of my old metal stash which is HUGE I tell you! When I first starting scrapping and I owned my own store, metal embellishments were huge so you can imagine (well you probably can't actually ...its terrible really how much i have!!) how much I have sitting never being used. So I used these Basic Grey Extra large book plates as frames. I think they look quite good! Of course some more Bella Blvd, prima and other bits and pieces!!!
Sorry If I have overloaded you but with my blog the way it is I thought I would putthem all on here now while I can. I am currently having a ball creating she art!! Will post more about that later!!!

Well happy Easter I hope the Easter bunny visits your house. Stay safe and well , Eb xx

Where do I begin....

I have so much to share! I just spent an AWESOME weekend witha group of AMAZING ladies. We rented this house(built by my very talented uncle and decorated by my very talented aunty!) and spent the entire weekend scrapping, laughing, chatting, eating and we even got some walks in! I seriously had the best time so thank you ladies. Ireally didnt get many pics as I was too busy having FUN!!! And Marelle...those pizzas were delicious....thankyou!
So I'll start with some of the challenge layouts I completed and Ill share more over the coming days!

 This one I actually completed last night for the scrap the girls challenge. This was an inpirational challenge based on this picture.
I was totally inspired by the colors and the layering in the picture and the whimsy,outdoor feel to it. So I decidedon this photo and used some mist,  paint and some Crafters workshop templates to create the layered background. I even used some old & Gypsies scrabble letters I have had in my stash for years! The chipboard fence is by Scapmatts ( love it!)

                                       Next is a layout based  on the Get Picky sketch.
      I created this layout using some photos of Will heading off to school recently for crazy hair day!

Gotta love the crazy faces too!!!!
I also loved Antheas sketch for Savvy too so I created this.
And also I created this layout based on the sketch at Anna's craft cupboard. I only used 2 photos  though!
( sorry , not the best photo!)
Well I'll leave my sharing there and be back soon to reveal some more.
Thanks for stopping by, Eb xx

Clothing Inspiration....

Back to share with you my layout I created for this months challenge at Scrap the Boys. The challenge this month is to take your inspiration from an item of clothing that your son, hubby etc is wearing. I loved the grungey designs in Will's t-shirt as well as the colors. Lots of different background layers in this one and had so much fun creating!!! Head over and take a look.

Thanks for popping by, Eb xx
