Pretty Leah

This is my cute little niece, she's a girly tomboy if there is such a thing??? We don't get to see her too often sadly but love to see how she's grown each time we do :)

It just happened that I'd bought this gorgeous My Minds Eye Jubilee paper just before I saw the August challenge on the 123 Challenge Blog , and even the photo overlay is also from MME but very old.
Here's the challenge
Couldn't have been more appropriate really!
Hope you like it, thanks for stopping by.

Dive Bomb

Summer may be a long way behind us here, but looking at these photos made me remember the heat of the day all over again...Jellie Park is a great place to cool off on a hot day.
Shiloh and Shanae spent a good time just lining up and jumping in again and again!
The layout is my take on the 15 August Stuck?! Sketch Challenge - perfect for this series of photos!

Here's the sketch..

I'm loving playing with different media at the moment - this one uses soft gloss gel, which I mixed with Gelatos for colour, plus Gesso.

I've also just found a new (to me anyway) challenge site frosted designs - which asked for chevrons - I've used a Kaisercraft chevron stamp and WOW chevron chipboard.
There are also some fantastic tutorials on this site :)

Some Bunny...

Onesies are just wonderful :) Bre has worn and worn this bunny one, purchased just in time for Easter last year.
The paper and die cuts are from Kaisercraft's Kaleidoscope Collection, Washi from Papervine, chipboard from WOW, medallion from American Crafts, enamel shapes from We R Memory Keepers and a Heidi Swapp word transparency. The large butterfly is a VERY old Prima one, and the camera is also from Prima.
I love the soft look of this layout, most of my more recent ones have been a lot brighter, and you know what they say about a change!

Its been a few weeks so here's the next instalment.

From Future Ferns when she was just little, up until the 2013 team (the last for Parklands Club) Shiloh has her Game Face on. The bottom jaw juts out and a look of determination comes to her eyes. Always played her hardest, sometimes even when her fingers were blue from the cold!

This page was done almost entirely using Kaisercraft's Game On collection. I love how it makes it so simple to put a sports page together! I still have tennis and swimming pages to go, so keep an eye out. I also used a little Heidi Swapp, and a Tim Holtz mask. Add a few sequins and a chipboard frame... and Voila!
