123 November challenge


Another  month  upon us,  where has this year flown.
( 1 )  sketch
(2)  2 words  Awesome  Adventure
(3) 3 colours   green , blue and grey.
  this months challenge  has  great  colours,  blue, green and grey, growing up , i was always told  blue and green should never been seen, yet, i say to people  what colour is the grass  and what colour is the sky & sea. & they meet . and they do look great together.

im going to keep it short, i say that every month, but here goes . . . . . .
products used,
blue and green card stock
Kaisers - Stonewall stencil
Kaiser  -  Basecoat ,  IV collection
Colour  Blast    - Steel  texture paste
Scrapmatts  chipboards -   circle
Krafters Korner   flowers
Ultimate  Crafts -  Bohamian  Bouquet  Gemstones  Flourishes
Resin Rainbow -  bespoke flower  doily
Kelly Ann Oosterbeeks -  Butterflies
in my stash i found a  paper  doily ,  that had grey  flower upon it , so have also inked around the outside of this

I have  used  my  stonewall stencil to  create  a bit of texture on the   basecoat   background as well as on the blue  cardstock under the photos .
after drying  i have  assembled it all together.
i have  inked the  scrapmatts chipboard circle.
printed  out the words,  Awesome   Adventure on white cardstock though my  computer and printer as well as  my sub title  and main total,  Lake Tekapo and  The church of  good shepherd
lucky, the  information  that i had on a piece of paper ( from new Zealand trip)   fitted on to make a photo .

Until next month,  I  wonder if  it will be red or green being christmas month, i will just have to  wait and see.
have a a great time scrapping.

kelly anns challenge for retreat

 hi all ,
i know i haven't done any challenges this month,   i thought at the beginning, that i would wait til  after  kelly anns  retreat to  get started,  so  did not do any layouts for 13 days, til camp,
i went to the retreat ,which wa great only problem , Rain, and humidity, does not go well with my sinuses and rain it did all weekend, 
i came home and then  caught a cold on top of it ,so dr put me on medication and today is the first day that i have felt , like doing anything,
im still coughing  a bit , so staying home  i would love to  go to  new scrapbooking shops to see what they have, but it will have to wait .

We  got a group photo  on the last day of  camp,  and  kelly ann, asked us to do a layout by the end of the month,

i have used a combination of   Kaisers indigo skies and  one of the base coat  background  sheets,  and then  with my stash  just filled around the photo 

fishing net,  at the back of the photo  ,
good times
light house from scrapmatts

flower  stem  green tara
rocks are from  bead shop
by the sea is scrapmatts,
post card is studio light ( Vintage  lane
buterflies from Kelly Ann Oosterbeek
bling from cheap shop
in the good times, we received  some  beads, so instead of trying to  find a home, i placed then in and added glossy accents  to it to look like rain  how clever LOL
the post card , i  type on  my computer then  put the paper  though,

well , not sure if i will get any other  challenges done this month, depending on how i feel in the next coming days ,
til next month,

have a great day.

Kaiser Septembers Challenge

Kaiser Septambers  Challenge
 i can not believe  that we are  almost in October, where has the year gone,

looking at the  great sketch ,but not  thinking of any pictures  can be troublesome to say the least, when the mind goes blank, its not that i dont have enough photos, i have lots and they need to be scrapped or as my hubby says , if they now dont mean anything  now , throw them away.
shock horror i think

so looking at the  Kaiser corner, so many  beautiful layouts, this month,  i think, maybe it  just time for me to give the challenges a miss , ive been doing them for over 3 years,   but i do like  the sketches etc. i still have a mountain of Kaiser products, and mountains of photos  and it gives me something to do though the day  when im home and not travelling people for appointments every month,
A lady wrote when i mentioned this and she said that instead of  looking for photos of people  that no  one really  is interested in as they dont know them  why  not do sceneries,
 well, yes, i thought  i have lots of photos that way in new zealand trip, and so my journey began
products ive used ,
Kaiser  - Limelight  paper
P 1451 Dawn
P1445 Bright
P 1449 Step
Botanica  -  collectables
Kaiser  Elegant  Pearl Florish Chocolate
Kaiser  Lime green Rhinestones
No cardstock was used on this layout

kelly -Ann Oosterbeeks Designs  Glossy   butterflies Brown
 here is my version

Hope you like it ,now  to  figure  how i enter the page  again ,
have a great day

123 septembers challenge

123 September's  Challenge

Love this combo, i  always love anything  that  has blue in it , so calming
I enjoy   doing  123 challenges each month  and can not wait til the next month comes around.
love this sketch, colours and  words,  Love Always,  this view  from  imaginarium  designs chipboards,
Where has September gone   its almost over and i haven't  done any of my challenges this month, time is going too fast,
After a restful break for  10 days away, i came home  peaceful & relaxed , but then  2 days later  the hectic  life began again with taking people off for their appointments, hospitals again.  yaa i  think i have this week off, keep fingers crossed,
 i need another holiday, LOL
todays i have chosen a few   collections for my page,
Kaiser -  Coastal  Escape, High Tide &  Close to my Heart  papers
Inked the title  with   Kaisers, sandstone  inks this is getting a bit light on , i  will have to make it one of  my new buys at the next trip to  the  shop.
I have  Kaisers Die cut my anchors using  sand and  blue cardstock
the circle, i cut out of  my  bread and butter  plate,  easy,  instead of getting out machine,
inked the string on some of the  anchors,
i have embossed  swirls,  just love these   going though my ebosser, for texture
I have distressed my edges and inked as well,

hard to believe we are in  October next week,  my turn for someone ( hubby )  to drive  me to an appointment, rest , yaaa. at   first thought i would be staying in hospital, but this isn't the case now ,  so hoping that  all will go well,   im  looking forward to seeing the  sizes of the  sketch photos again real soo instead of spots, i will be seeing properly,
 i will be  resting for a few days, from 3rd October,
hope you like my layout as much as i  have enjoyed doing this ,

until next month have a great day

Kaiser August Challenge

Kaiser August Challenge
I recently bought some Kaiser die set,   and thought ,why not ,  do the Kaiser   challenge,
I have been buying Kaiser papers since 2007,  so  know  what papers i will need for this challenge,

 products i have  used tonight  are
Kaiser Factory 42 stamps
Kaiser  Embossing folder  cogs
Kaiser  K bolts   patterned papers
Kaiser  blue  cardstock
Kaiser Black Cardstock

   cog stencil
           creativ  stickers  you and me  and  a chpboard   cog , in my stash
staz on  ink  to stamp
  thanks for great challenge,  i dont  do  boy pages often enough, but then again , sometimes   boys papers are not round either,

  Imaginarium Designs
Selfie this months challenge,   not often we do ourselves, hey.
  Tonight,   i wanted a quick  and fast  way to do my challenge, as im  heading away tomorow and did not want to leave the photos and papers on my desk,  til my return,  as the challenge  would be over  and the photo would go back into  the cupboard.
I received some     different   Imaginarium   chipboards last month for  a placing, so  pleased with that .  now can do lots more  Imaginarium challenges if i   want to  do.
i had out  blue cardstock of another project, i got out  2, but only  used  the one sheet  so instead of putting it away,  just use it , this is my plan.  in the coming months  to use  instead of   storing for a rainy day, lol ,
 so thought  a selfie,    i thought,  use the imaginarium   letters and colour them  with Chameleon Pens, and the leaves  ( large flourish  imaginarium ) served  a good point for my flowers, and i love anything , lacy, so  the   me in the   ( window  Imaginarium ) )  chipboard,  just suited ,
i have used some  Kaiser brick papers
my latest   buy is Chameleon  pens  so  what better way than to colour  the chipboards with it , i have cool colours,      like light blues,  dark blue, greens , although , i may not have mastered it yet ,  im sure in time i will .
I found some  die cuts,  from Coco Vanilla ,  just love  this collection Hello Sunshine,
i found some  words, flowers and arrows  clouds,   and  used   liquid pearls for centres of flowers ,
 see you all later next month sometime ,
thanks for great challenge,  i wonder what  interesting things you have installed for next month,  i may have to sneak  in on the computer somewhere in my travels  so i can get some ideas of photos while im away lol

scrapbook fantasies weekly challenge, #33 colour orange

welcome to  a new week,
this week scrapbook challenge has the colour orange as their colour, im not  one for  orange, in my stash, so  what to do , leave it   nah.

i did however pick up some bright orange papers from   make and takes  months ago and thought  i will give it a try one day, so the orange paper  has been in with my  kits to do  box.

   what to do ,    ? ? ?  ? ummm ,as i said not a colour i play with,

my friend is creating a  mini album, and she was saying about all the  fussy cutting she has to do on it  i asked her which album from heartfelt creations she was doing ,as i have several of their dies,

so in getting them out, im flicking though my dies, in my book,  and theres a  brick die ,and  the lovely swirly one, and ideas started to form,

    so  theres not a lot of papers that im used to  adding on it this time ,but the effect is there  and  thats the main thing

Orange cardstock
 Kaiser Brick  Die
swirly die  not sure if its Kaiser,
  A Mothers Art   Butterflies, i have used  the yellow ones and  put  Martha  Stewart orange glitter  pen over it , it would not stay on ,so  then added glossy accents over the top,
Kaiser  Pina  Colada  leaves rub ons and coloured with   Martha Stewart Glitter Markers

Instead of throwing away the  release paper, i have added it to the bottom to tie in with the black edging of the butterflies,

Love this is from a Kaiser Paradiso sticker sheet
 I have dotted around the edge with  my orange  Glitter Markers from Martha Stewart ( love these Markers)

 most likely wont be able to do  challenges, the next few weeks,  unless i see them   up  soon .  LOl

as  have orchid show on  last weekend of august, ( 26 th and 27th )  then will be going away for  a few weeks,  ( no scrapping allowed in caravan  LOL)

until next time have a great week scrapping
