Rock-a-Bye Girl

Indigo Maree Leyland (2) 

Hey there...how are you today?

I've been having fun with a SU! Simply Scrappin' Kit....Rock-a-Bye Girl.....oh my it is gorgeous. The colours Regal Rose/Pink Pirouette/Bashful Blue and Kiwi Kiss go together so beautifully and the die cut stickers that come with it are adorable. I've created this layout for a friend who has just had her new baby girl....the idea was we were all getting together tomorrow (pregnant Mum included) to scrap pages for babies first year. We were allowing plenty of time cause she wasn't due til July :-) Funny thing is...she delivered on Wednesday, 6 weeks early....OMG!!!

So we will still get together....minus now-no-longer-pregnant-friend.....and scrap the pages and present the album to her in a month or so when bubby gets out of hospital. Here is my page for the album...

Love the Big Deal Alpha for layouts and the onboard Batch of Blooms items are fab too:0)) The only thing not SU! is the Kaisercraft Rhinestones.

Thanks for popping in to see what I've been up to...and thanks for your lovely comments.

I'll be back to share a card in a day or so. Enjoy the rest of the weekend:-)


CPS Sketch #117 x 2

Hey there...how are you today? I hope you've had a great Tuesday.

I've had a chance to play with the latest CPS Sketch......# 117 over the last 2 nights and have made 2 cards...they're pretty simple but I had fun....that's the main thing huh:0)

The first, I was determined to use SU! Bold Brights....I just never do....so here goes....

CPS Sketch 117 

Colours are Tempting Turquoise (a Bold Bright I do love), Green Galore, Yoyo Yellow and Pretty in Pink (not a BB but I had no Pixie Pink left). Sentiment is Inque Boutique's Say It Again Set and the motif from SU!'s Polka Dot Punches Set inked up with markers direct to the rubber.

The next card for a gorgeous baby girl......

CPS Sketch 117 Baby 

Love the DCWV Nanna's Nursery Papers - from Big W....and what a bargain they are too:0)....aren't they scrumdiddlyumptious??!! SU! circle and scallop punches and Creative Imaginations paper lace trim.

I'm so glad you dropped in today to see what I've been up to.....leave me a comment if you can....I love to hear from my visitors.

Be back to share again in a day or so....see you then:-))


Dawn McVey's Colour Challenge

Hey there...hope you're having a GREAT Monday.

I had a play last night with my new Spellbinders Impressabilities...the butterfly one and came up with this card using Dawn's Colour Challenge for this week. It's the first time I've played along....and my colours don't perfectly match Dawn's but it's a start....

here's the colours....

Dawn ...it's the Raspberry I couldn't really match up well.....but here 'tis....

Dawn McVey's Colour Challenge 

....the Impressability I love...what a cool little gadget...I inked it first with SU! Old Olive and then ran it through my Cuttlebug so it embossed with colour in the indentations....if that makes sense:0))

The pink is SU! Rose Red and the ribbon SU! Certainly Celery. It was a fun card to make and I have a friend having a birthday early next month who will most likely receive this card;-)

Okay, off to get dinner. Thanks for popping in and hope you can join me again in a day or two for more sharing.

Bye.....
