Happy Feet........

I totally love this photo of Will's converse shoes! He was given to him by Ella Jackman as they don't fit her anymore! Will thinks they make awesome skating shoes!!!
I loved this bonus sketch over at stuck this month so I had a go!!!

I drew my squares like a grid and then added circles to each square!

More POCD and Lil Red Rocket!!!

Hi peeps!
I just wanted to share some more creativity with you!
I have posted this one over on the "Piece of cake designs" blog ....
Of course it is using this months fabulous kit!!!!!!!
I once again have added some scraps from my own stash but seriously that's what I love about these kits , you can use up so much of your old stash as well and make the kits go even further!!!!
I have just added some old dictionary paper and some masking and some scraps of cardstock that I have used to cut circles on my cricut with.
I love this photo of Will. His swimming has improved out of sight this year and he really loves it! He actually looks like he has muscle definition here!! LOL Good on you my man....keep it up! He never ever gives up, he attempts everything he does with no fuss and 100% commitment.I am so proud of all his efforts this year, school, swimming soccer....I couldn' ask anymore of him. he really is a sweet, strong , intelligent boy. LOve him to bits.

Now I also have this kinda fun layout to share! Recently we took the kids to Melbourne and we visited Science works. We took this fun photo!!!

I have used this layout for my post this month on Lil Red Rocket! I LOVE these spotty buttons! They seem to find there way onto my layouts a lot!!!

Some shares...

Well Hi!
I have some exciting news!
I was asked by Raquel to join her design team at "Piece of cake designs"
Her kits are amazing!
This months kit is full of gorgeous and funky papers , studio calico embellishment pack!, washi tape, twine, stickers, brads , flowers........wow! Such value! Have you got one yet? Check it out here!!!!

I have posted a step by step post up on the blog. Its actually my entry fro this month's "Kraft it up" challenge which is based on this sketch.

And here is my layout! and the instructions to recreate! (obviously you cannot submit this layout into Kraft it up!!)
 I created this layout at a scrappy weekend I organised a couple of weekends ago! I had the best time with amazing , talented friends! Lots of scrapping, eating, laughing, even a game of cards and pool!!

I also worked on a few other challenges.....
This is for "Scrap the boys". The challenge is to use your child's artwork on the layout and then be inspired by that artwork. Well I think you will see I was certainly inspired by Will's art!
He was busy creating one day recently, experimenting with watercolor paints, stencils and water bottles!!! How cool does his artwork look! I had so much fun recreating it!

This next layout is based on this sketch over at "Stuck!"
I decided to only use one photo and one journalling tag instead of two photos! I love this photo of Maya! It is not the clearest of photos but I love her eyes!!!

This is my layout...........

Next is a layout based on a different sketch....."Anna's Craft cupboard"

And my layout of my friend Crystal's girls Lily and Lucy.

Lastly probably my favourite of the weekend, my Scrap the Girls layout!
The criteria this month is to use stars on your layout...well I have used lots of those!!!

I will be back to share more soon :) Eb xxx
