A scrapbook page!!

Hello there bloggers!!

Today I am sharing a traditional page that I have done to tick a few boxes.
First box - scrap a page from my niece's year 7 graduation (December 2011)
Second box - Use some of Angie's new digi stamps (as soon as I saw these I KNEW I was going to tick at least one thing off my very very long to do list!)
Third box - I am entering this into a sketch challenge over at Sassy Scrappers - my 1st ever entry into a scrap challenge so please don't be too harsh on me!!

First up here is the sketch

And you can buy Angie's new digi stamps here.

Now onto the page :D

I have used an Amy Tan paper for the background (yellow, chevron, can't go wrong!!) and some of my pieces of bazzill. I have printed Angie's images onto Stampin Up Crumb Cake card stock and inked all the edges with distress stain.  That is a Studio Calico chevron mask I have used and some gorgeous Heidi Swapp mustard colour shine on the back ground also borrowed this technique and coloured the title "grad" with colour shines and a paint brush.

And here is the result

As always, thank you for stopping by, I hope you like what you saw!!

I am here today to share a MASSIVE haul that I have been waiting to receive from The Stamp Spot and it arrived safely in my hands on Tuesday! 

I just want to share that I paid for express post on this parcel so when I saw that it was "on board with driver" on Tuesday I literally squealed with delight!! To my horror though we had gone out for the morning and as we turned the corner into our street I saw that our delivery driver had just pulled out of our driveway!! Thankfully (I think!!) he recongnised me and stopped and delivered my parcel of yumminess!!

Without further ado, here are a couple of pics of the things I really, really, really, really want to get out and play with but think they will have to wait until I go to a day scrap retreat with Scrap Away in WA at the beginning of May.

Here is the 5kg satchel that my goodies arrived in =)

And everything minus the new paper trimmer I got

And the stuff I've really, really, really been hanging out for, Heidi Swapp!!

I have joined in with Heidi's 8 week adventure in the spiral bound album and will share pics once I have a wee bit more done - only done bits and pieces at this stage but let me tell you, this album is just gorgeous!!

Anyways, thank you as always for stopping by, see you back here soon =)

PL Week 9

Well hello there lovely blog followers!!
It has been a little while since I blogged anything - oops - I guess life has happened!

I am here to share with you tonight my Week 9 Project Life pages. 
For this week I have used a mix of my cobalt core kit and lots of goodies supplied to me from the wonderful Michelle over at The Stamp Spot.


I have used a very cute Amy Tan stamp set for my filler card along with some more goodies from Michelle - I think the stamp set belongs to the Yes Please line and I think it's called Aspire.


And that week included a trip out to a new park for us so we have an insert as well. The protector I have used is made by Bazzill and is one of their Lickety Slipper page protectors which I am really loving!!

This is the PP closed and what you see when flipping through the album - I just ADORE the top picture of my little (or not so much anymore!!) Hunter Jett!!

And opened
We all got involved in the fun that day - mind you though I managed to smash my left big toe stopping that swing and it is STILL sore as I type and we are in Week 16!!

And the back 

That's it for today. Thank you for stopping in and feel free to leave me some love!!
