Retreat Layouts

Hi Everyone
Its so nice to be able to flip through and pick out some older papers that you have been wanting to use for ages and finally scrap with it!!! 
My Son is using the Authentique Celebrate range that I have had on my stash for ages but I knew it would be perfect for my son.
I have used The Crafters Template Star Template and inked in various places on my card and then traced over with a black pen to make it stand out.
I have used lots of Wood Veneer Pieces from WOW that I have inked red.  These are available from my store
Full of Happiness is using another range from Jillibean Soup that I have had put away for awhile now.  I sold it during one of our Flog It Friday Sales over on Mad About Scrappin's Website and I was only able to get a few pieces for myself (that will teach me to get in first lol). 
I used the Kraft Cardstock Lattice by Jillibean Soup as my Background.  The yellow Forget Me Not flowers are available over in the Mad Store as well as the sequins which I love to use and add the perfect finish to your pages.  Big thank you to my gorgeous friends for letting me raid their stashes for the finishing touches on my page as well ;)

I think this is one of my favourite layouts featuring my girl!!!  Thanks for looking everyone!!

Well Played

Hi Everyone
I know what a shock I am blogging and showing my work lol! Its not because I don't want to but time can be hard to find sometimes especially when I am busy looking at all the yummy things I can order in to share with you!!
But I went away on Retreat with my best friends last month and had the oppourtunity to get a few layouts done.  When I first saw Well Played by Carta Bella I was excited because I thought what great boy paper for my son who is nearly 10!  Such great colours!!
If you are after the range you can still purchase some from the Mad About Scrappin Shop
The colours work so well with this photo.  I also included some Memory Maze Chipboard Stars and Little People which I left natural and my new LOVE Wood Veneer from WOW.  What I love about the Wood Veneer is that is looks awesome in its natural state!!
My second layout got very messy!!  I wanted to use the mists to try to imitate my son getting the wax on his hand!  I used the Tim Holtz Spray in red to get a deep red colour and then just used some black to do some splats on the page.  I got out my trusty Bubble Wrap stamp from Kaiser and randomly stamped on the cardstock.  I had lots of fun creating this layout!!!

I hope you find some inspiration this weekend!!!
