Creative kids!

Do you remember a little while ago I told you about the kids challenges happening over at "Show us your stuff"?
It is called "Sophies corner".....check it out !
So the challenge this month is for your talented kiddies to create a layout about one of their favourite things...could be a toy, game book, food, hobby....anything really!
Well I told you that Maya had created hers and I havent shown it yet . But Will has also created his too.
Here is Will's. Its about his love of drawing!!! He wants to be an illustrator when he grows up. I  was so proud of him. Each time we have scrapped I have tried to show him something new. This time I showed him how to layer the papers. Here is his layout!He even used a handmade embellie.....he used a lollipop by "Charms creations" and a cool button by "Lil Red Rocket"!
                                                                       Its so cool isnt it!!!!! ??
Now for Miss Maya's. Maya LOVES Lalaloopsy dolls!!!! So here is her creation. She had been watching me scrap the day before and she really had wanted to do misting. But we tried and it was too hard for her to push down the nozzle and hold at the same time! She ended up wearing it at one stage!! So she then wanted to paint! So iIshowed her the hearts and she immediately wanted to paint them. I also gave her my washi tapes ( I generous of me considering they are my addiction!!) and showed her how they work. She loved them and found them so easy to use! She was so precise in what she wanted to do!!!! And she used a handmade embellie of my mums crochet flowers!!!
Here's her bright gorgeous layout!!!!
I am so proud that my kids love being creative! They both love painting and drawing and colouring in!!!!
Will is awesome at building lego.
Well thanks for popping by and checking out my children's work. I hope you can have as much fun helping your kids to create and play along too!!!

A few monthly challenges....

Ok well since its getting close to the end of the month i thought it was a bout time I uploaded some layouts I have done for challenges!!! I haven't completed as many this month but here we go!!!
This one is of me...shock horror!!! and No!! its not meant to be my cranky face!!!! Just my serious face!
Last week when i created this I was feeling a litlle lost ....just wasn't happy with who I was, what I was doing, my expectations on know how we get sometimes!!! So I saw this quote in a local cafe and I wanted to remind myself of it! I can't say I love this layout but is my"White with one " challenge.
The challenge is to use white with kraft and layering.....
The quote reads..
"I am braver than I believe
Stronger than I seem and
smarter than I think.."

The next challlenge I did was for "Scrap the boys". After doing the above layout I wanted to change up my style a little bit so I went all arty farty and I must say I am REALLY happy with it!!!
Lots of texture, modelling paste, paint and mists, washi tape and stamping!!!
 These are Will's school shoes that he picked himself this year....with the help of daddy!!! Not my choice I must say!!! But he thinks they are ultra cool!!!
The criteria was to use RED!!! (yah!) "Life's Good as a title and handwritten journalling....
Here's my journalling....
 I also had a play to create this one. Not for any challenges but just to have some fun! Used lots of old scraps of paper and bits n pieces and more modelling paste and of course washi tape!!! If anyone wants to buy washi tape I found the best place and the cheapest is by fair at D-Lish scraps. check it out!
Thanks for popping by! Ebx

Im still here!!!!

Hi ! Yep still here just been busy nursing a sore neck and then a cold...but I'm on the mend thank goodness!
Just have a couple of shares today.
The first is for the next challenge over at SUYS this month. The challenge is to use this series of photos as your inspiration......looks yummy!!!

Here is my layout....
I decided to obviously use aqua as a main colour but I cut out some hearts from patterned papers to represent the sprinkles! And obviously my title was inspired by the sprinkles!!!
We were given some cute little metal embellishments to use as part of the DT so I painted mine with thick acrylic aqua paint! They came up well I think!!
Can you also spot some other cool embellies on there?????? See that cool  little red heart button??? Its a
"lil Red Rocket" creation!!!!!
Mmmmmmm.....what else is on here !! Of course a page runner and a luscious lollipop by "Charms Creations"! I heart!!!!

I also had a go at the sketch over at Stuck! sketches! I used these photos of Maya at her 5th birthday recently. She was a little overwhelmed when it came to singing "Happy birthday". She kinda cracked em, and refused to blow out the candles on her cake. These will be photos bought out on her 21st!!!
( I will add we had a re run of blowing out the candles after everyone left just to get a photo!! The pics were quite dark as it was 41 degree today outside so all the curtains were closed!!)

Well I'll be back soon with some more creations...happy scrappin!
