Pip - also known as Pipster, Pipsqueak, Pippy, Pipperella and Fats ;)

One of her favourite spots is outside our bedroom ranchslider curled up on a large toy dog - no irony there considering she's the biggest scaredy-cat ever!

I came across this sketch by Lets Get Sketchy for June and it gave me the inspiration I needed to get this page done and dusted.

Thanks for looking, leave a comment if you like it!

Once again the best bud pair Shiloh and Shannon.

That's the trouble with being so photogenic :D

This was taken when we were away for a weekend in Hanmer together earlier this year. Such a relaxing spot!

And a couple of close ups of the gels/mica...

My inspiration for this was the Blue Fern sketch challenge for June -

So pretty and feminine! 

Thanks for the look, leave a comment if you like it :)


Just a quick check in with this one...

My beautiful niece Maddison again, this time at Riverton when we went to Invercargill over the Xmas holidays 2015/16.

The layout comes form a class run by Julie Best (her first!) which was great, using a lot of Blue Fern product, sprays and gelatos, all courtesy of The Paper Teapot.

Thanks for the look!

This page is titled "Wonder" as that's exactly the expression on Shiloh's face....facing a new year of challenges at school, wondering what path to take, where life will take her.

And a couple of close ups of that texture....

I had two challenge sites that I used for inspiration for this page - 

Firstly the sketch is by Laura at Stuck?! Sketches, I love how it makes it easy to put my own stamp on things. If you would like to play along you have until the end of the month - just have a look here.

And this is the sketch I used...

Secondly thank you to Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge for the title inspiration, this challenge is also open to the end of the month - have a play along with this challenge too - go on, you know you want to! Have a look at it here.

Also, I have to say - I'm a major fan of Bo Bunny texture paste - a really nice effect and so simple to use. 

Thanks for having a look, leave a comment if you like it ;;)
