Do you dream? - Prima BAP September sketch

The sketch - which can be found over here
My LO of Sam sleeping - everything is Prima - except the AC Thickers alphabet
I have used Animal bash collection PP's, Prima flowers and butterflies, part of a Prima swirl, Prima fabric tag.

I have used AC Nutmeg thickers - one of my fav style of thicker letters
The journalling reads "So peaceful, but do you dream? Your life is so full of routines and constant repeating. Do you dream in the same way? I often wonder, in your dreams are you Autistic? In your dreams is your life so much easier? Do we understand you? Do you get cross? I hope you have happy dreams, I love you."

I am very proud to be a design team member for Jazzlins Designs. Linda was very kind to send me a bag of yummy embellishments - and I made the following 2 cards
Hugs Card - Sugar Nellie Post Box stamped image ( please note I've cut off the post box - I didn't want in - just the little girl reading the letter). I have coloured in the image using pro-markers and prisma pencils
The image has been cut out using one of my new Nestabilities dies - Labels 14. Everything has been sparkled using stickles

The PP are DCVW Linen Closet collection (love these - I'm sure I've said that before!!)

all the ribbons, flowers and embellishments are from Linda at Jazzlins Designs

UKS September Monthly Challenge

UKS Monthly Challenge - Scrap an old school photo and use a non-scrapbooking item.
A photo of me and two of my friends from our final year at school in 1988 - and the non-scrapbooking item is my Prefect badge.
I have used AC cardstock, and Jillibean Soup PP - everything has been distressed using Tim Holtz distress ink - pumice stone. The small flowers have also been inked and I have used glossy accents to adhere the badge to the Tim Holtz frame

The chipboard cog was from my stash and aged using the distress ink - all the metal work is Tim Holtz
The stamp is from Waltzing mouse stamps - stamped on to kraft CS and cut out using my Nestabilities, the photo corners are also Tim Holtz. This page took ages to do but I am pleased with the final result and it will go in my Book of Me (which is 8.5 x 11).

UKS weekly challenge!

Hi everyone - sorry not blogged with stuff for a while but getting back in to the routine of work and school just gets in the way of scrapping!! Yesterday I was at a crop run by Katie at Cre8tive and although I didn't get a huge amount done - it was good to relax and catch up with friends - and that is what scrapping is all about! I did however catch up with 2 of my UKS weekly challenges (and the monthly one is in progress!)
Wk 1 Sept - Pastel/Ice cream colours (10 points), stripes/boarders (5 points), photo to show change/memory (10 points) and journaling (5 points). This is my graduation from 1996 - which is quiet appropriate at the moment as I am having a tough time at work - and looking at this photo reminds me of the hard work it took to gain my degree for my job. I have used AC cardstock and thickers, Scrapworks PP, and star flowers with Doodlebug jewels.
Aug wk 5 - Mono colours (10 points), montage of 3 pics (10 points), stamped image on LO (5 points), journaling around edge of LO or photos (5 points). This is a photo of my lovely son at school with his certificate he gained in Maths at the year 7 prizegiving cermony - I was so proud of him - he had worked so hard!

The metal embellishment is Tim Holtz

Some photo's from the IOW

I thought I would share with you a selection of my fav photo's from the 100's taken when we went to the IOW - we did manage to get out in between the rain showers!!



All of the beach photos were taken at approx between 5-7pm -because (1) it wasn't raining then and (2) this is a perfect time of day for the lighting to take fab pictures at the beach! I have to say the beach is my fav place for taking photos - I have take some of my best photos of the boys at the beach!


and its a perfect time of day to take shadow photos!!






My fav pic of the week!





another fav!

Thanks for looking and I am sure most of these photos will appear on LO's soon
Love and Hugs
