Catch up....

Oh MY! Amazing how much LESS one blogs when one doesn't have a myriad
of Challenges to load up!
Strangely, I actually won a couple that I just found out about. Over at 1,2,3 Challenge
& at White with One. Might be what you call going out with a 'bang'??!!
It's been raining here today. Great weather to start packing. I'm off to the Blue
Mountains with 4 other scrappy friends for a Long Weekend of Scrapping, starting
Friday. CAN'T WAIT. And yes, I SHOUTED that. Did you hear??!!!
We figured this was a cheaper option & so we've hired a house & I for one am WAAAAY
excited!
Meanwhile, here's one I scrapped a whiles ago & haven't shared:
Getting multiple photos on a page can be  tricky..... especially when they're different sizes!
I thought I'd use a stencil on the bg on the left hand side to 'mimic' the design of the paper
on the right hand side. To tie it in. I reckon it worked!
And who said you can't use a touch of red with pink?!!! Lots of 'bits' here, including
bg stamping as well. This is our wee Great Grand Girl. Is she not GORGEOUS??!!!
That 'tab' is from Studio Fourteen 40. CUTE!!!
 I'm not 'good' at using tags, so challenged myself to get a couple on this page.
And I had a heap of journaling, but wanted to break it up....
I've coloured the wood bits with my Pitt Artist's Big Brush pen... LOVE it!
The edges of the photos have been marked with my black Copic marker. I didn't
back them with pp. It's busy enough as it is! That little word sticker 'trust' seemed
appropriate here!

One other thing, FUNKY FLAIR STUDIO is having a NEW FLAIR & KIT release
tomorrow at 7pm [Australian time]..... here's a sneak of the
BOYS KIT...1st one Evie has ever done!
The kit is full of goodies including hand designed paper, stencil, frames, die cuts & flair.
There are only 20 available at the release!
And my fave new flairs are these:
Just soooo 'on trend'. Love 'em!!!
Anyways, hope to see you at FUNKY FLAIR STUDIOS at 7pm!
Cheers for now...hope you have a lovely scrappy week ~ Lizzy ♥♥♥

  1. Hi Lizzayy! I am so excited for you as you go on your retreat! Have fun.. thats an order!! and well done on your wins.. I am not surprised.. your layouts are always of a fabulous standard.. and love the layout not just because I love horses and think those photos are adorable, but because the layout is just fabulous in design too with all the embellies.. and it has been raining here today too.. and rained while we were away last week too.. I have a laundry floor covered in stuff to be washed... but hopefully the sun will shine again soon and the roar of my washing machine will be heard for quite some time to get it all out!! hehe! Have a great week ahead!!

  4. Yayy!! for you winning those challenges .. congratulations!! .. and Yayy!! again for going on a retreat!! How exciting!! Love your page Lizzy!! The photos are adorable .. so sweet seeing your darling great grandie enjoying time with those lovely horses. Love the multiple photos .. your page is stunning as always. We've had a bit of rain here too. Don't know if it was on the news up there but there's been lots of flooding. Feel so sad for those whose homes were inundated and, unfortunately, there is more to come. Hope it won't be as bad but I gues we'll just have to wait and see. Anyways, have yourself a great time scrapping with your friends .. hope to see lots of lovely creations when you get back. hugs xx

  12. Oh my so love that horse layout! Super cool! And fun times await! You have a super awesome time! You know, I kinda plan on four layouts a week. I like to write so I don't mind and I like to blog about stuff and without much effort, I somehow have four a week. Been laying off the challenges myself, but only because I forget to link them up...
