Scrapbooking on a Saturday

Yesterday, I should have been cleaning (it is spring after all!) but I am wanting to finish off the scrapbooking of my photos from my holiday to the US in May/June this year. I have used all Stampin'Up! (SU) product on one page and a mixture of paper, ribbon, stamps and inks from my stash (which never seems to reduce).
This page was the last day of my holiday (and my final travellers cheque that I am signing), the photos were taken at Manhattan Beach, California. I took a taxi from my hotel near LAX airport. It was a beautiful sunny day and I had a great time walking the pier, the beach and the looking at the shops. I even made it to See's Candies for my chocolate fix. My taxi driver recommended the Shellback Surf Tavern for lunch (yummy fish and chips) and the best thing the view - yes it was the view of the pier in the photo.

Here is the page I made from my stash - the photos are from Cowtown, Fort Worth, Texas. I distressed, inked, stamped, walnut inked, glimmer misted paper and generally had great fun making the page. The keen-eyed will notice the SU Baroque Motif stamp, twine and brads. And look carefully and you will see the horse is laughing.
I still have a few more pages to go - keep tuned. Have a great day.

21st birthday invitations

My niece is turning 21 shortly and I have made her invitations for a dinner she is organising to celebrate this milestone. Of course I did not cut and emboss the frame - I used a die cutting/embossing machine for this. I love the ribbon bow using ribbon available from current SU mini catalogue - it is wide and soft.

A Christening Scrapbook page

Recently, I posted a picture of a card I made for Kiera's christening. I have made a scrapbook page to celebrate this event. I have used the same paper (from Rock-a-bye Girl Simply Scrappin' kit) as I used to make her card . I love these kits you get paper, cardstock and embellishments to match. Another element the same as her card was the white embossed "K" top right hand corner.

Last night the challenges were set by Ryn. She had three challenges for us - colour (Pumpkin Pie, Garden Green, Riding Hood Red and Perfect Plum, sketch and punch, I have not completed the punch one. I have used two stamp sets that I rarely use. Enjoy

"Scrappy" Scrapbooking

My scrapbooking style, in the most, is plain and simple. At the Sunday crop, I attended, one of the projects was a musical scrapbook page with Nina Granzien - lots of distressing, masking and glimmer. I loved it. Just need to find a photograph with something musical in it.
Taking this to my own style I created a page about my grandmother (in apron), circa 1923. My father gave this photo to a local historian to put in a book about Hornsby area - and this is a photograph of the page in the book.
Last night I participated in the latest cyberchallenge with The INKlings and I will be back later to post my projects and another scrapbook page I created. On a roll.

Yesterday, I attended a crop to raise funds for cancer research. It was a fun day of stamping and scrapping. One of the days events was to take some of your cards with a chance to win a years subscription to a magazine. I am excited to announced that I won a subscription with two cards that you have seen here before using 3D flowers.
