Guest DT Spot at Scrapbook Savvy

I was absolutely thrilled to discover the other week that I had won a Guest DT spot at Scrapbook Savvy.  Part of the prize was this fabulous kit.
It is gorgeous, with Authentique and My Mind's Eye papers, cardstock,  and choc full of yummy embellishments.  I loved playing with it, and used just about all of it making these 3 layouts.

Since this layout was for a wedding photo, I added a bit more glimmer with some really old Prima product from my stash.  Have been trying hard to use up my stash, and this gorgeous paper was just screaming for some Prima...lol...  Also addes some Kaisercraft flowers, but the scrunched flowers I made from paper scraps from the kit - and my Tattered Florals Die....

Everything on this layout is from the kit, except the brown buttons.
 And this one was also entirely made from product from the kit - except for the spotty button.

I know I've said it before, but thank you so much Sar, I absolutely loved this kit, and thoroughly enjoyed playing with it.
The We're Savvy kits are all sold out now, but keep them in mind for future months - they are awesome value for $25 and are ALWAYS awesome!
If you want, I think there are still 3 She's Savvy kits left in the store, and I couldn't resist - I got one to play with....it is beautiful too, also full of Authentique and MME and beautiful embies....think i might have a play with it tonight actually...lol...
Thanks for popping by :)

Playing at Chookscraps

Hi everyone,  sorry I've been a slack blogger, I've been scrapping, but because I am on new medication, I have to go to bed early, otherwise I am a zombie the next day, so not much is getting done really.... Last weekend there was a Cybercrop over at Chookscraps.  I managed to get two challenges done - just not on time, haha. 
This was Challenge 1 - had to have a heart/club/diamond/spade on the layout, a number in the title, at least 2 flowers....

This is what I did for Challenge 2 - I had to use at least 50 per cent black and white, 5 of something, the word "Nothing" somewhere in the title or journalling...
Used some Basic Grey Out of print..such a gorgeous range..."sigh"

Finally I have been playing along in the Amazing Chook Race.  Round 11 saw us visiting Vietnam.  We had to use  Red and Yellow - at least 75 per cent, and base our layout on a sketch provided.
This is what I did - used the gorgeous Echo Park Happy Days paper - and yes, couldn't help the song playing over and over in my head...lol...

That's it for me at the moment, it's a beautiful rainy day here, so I plan on spending the day scrapping - and I'm playing with the gorgeous We're Savvy kit over at Scrapbook Savvy - I am lucky enough to be the Guest DT member over there this month and I got this beautiful kit to play with.  It's sold out now, but be sure to keep an eye on the kits at this store - they are always outstanding, full of gorgeous new products, and such good value..They are out in the middle of each month ;)

End of Month Bits and Pieces

Well, this was a good month for me scrapping wise - I managed to get a lot of challenges done, and I've just spent some time over lunch browsing the challenge blogs and organising myself for August.
Just to finish things off, this morning I did the 2 Inspired Blueprint sketches.
This was the July 1st sketch:

This is what I came up with:

This is Blueprint #77

Here is my sample - as you can see, I used stars instead of hearts, just scrapping some old photos of Connor - which is good, finally catching ups.

Finally, here is my sample for this week's Colour Room Challenge.
It was to use the colours from this room:

Here is my layout - about Connor's love of guinea pigs, photo was taken at last year's Mackay Show.
