I think this is my fave colour combo!

Blues. With cream/white.
It seems to be my default combo.
More multi photos, again from a whole range of dates.
STILL using up those alphas!!!
The 'Es' are actually 3s & the 'A' a 'U'.... dunno what got smudged
on them. Aaaaah well! Least of my worries;)
I also used some stamping! Sorting them out means I [sort of]
know what I have!


For this Yvonne Yam inspired card, below, I used her technique of
clustering 'unlike' objects together! And some GOLD Ecoline ink she sent
me. I've never had any before. And sorta used it wrong. But, hey!
It made brilliant 'faux' drops.
Oh! And the water colouring? I actually did that!
I'm not 'arty' - but it was fun having a play;)
Anyways, back to the blues... a SINGLE PHOTO one below.
This is my almost Grown Grand boy, which means that photos
of him are rare! Anyways, I nabbed this one from Facebook.
Found a feather on the way home from the shops, so on it went!
 I am SO not good at using chipboard....so that's the 'latest' challenge.
I have found if I pop a little bunch of stuff on my work desk, then
I'm much more likely to use it. So that's my strategy re: stuff I find
hard to use! I'm glad it's working:)
 Stitched down arrows & REAL shells! Inspo from both Mitra P
who gave me the little shells, and Anna U who uses stitching amazingly!!
Bet you've got some Pearl Drops in your stash? I like to use them
to attach sequins - they make a cute little centre bit!
The layers behind my photo are OLD papers.
Mixing old and new again....works for me!
I hope you-all had a lovely Easter. It was a nice, quiet one here.
I got a fair bit of scrapping done - some Happy Mail sent out.
I've had a birthday since last time I posted, so more mail for that
too.
All in all, I've had a rather GOOD month!
Hope you're having one too:)
Cheers ~ Lizzy H ♥♥♥

  2. Glad you had a Happy Easter - we had a quiet-ish one too. You just can't go wrong with blues and creams, they work for almost any kind of layout. Cute photos of your special Boy and I especially like the lifetime love ticket. Clever chickie with the stamped and water coloured card - it turned out beautifully. The last project works well on the weathered wood background; perfect for the beach photo. Always a treat to drop in for a cuppa. TFS

  12. Did you just really say "I'm not arty?" Pshhhhh girlfriend, you are the DEFINITION of arty. Smack* smack* smack* I'm crushing on the little bits and bobs you've used in all of your designs. I must now go find one of those wicked cool feathers. <3
